Full, shiny, silky, and manageable hair certainly enhances a person’s appearance.

Voluminous, shiny, silky, and manageable hair certainly enhances a person’s appearance.
Healthy hair is a good indicator of your overall health. Healthy lifestyle and nutritional foods are the foundation of your health. Healthy person usually have good skin and healthy looking hair.
Smoking, hormonal imbalances, and not enough sleep can also affect how your hair looks and feels. No magic nutrient can make up for those concerns. http://www.webmd.com/beauty/hair-styling/top-10-foods-for-healthy-hair
Hera are suggestions for fodd to include in your diet.
1. Salmon, Fish oil.
Besides being rich in protein and vitamin D (both are key to strong hair) the omega-3 fatty acids found in this tasty cold-water fish are the true superstar. Your body can’t make those fatty acids, which your body needs to grow hair. About 3% of the hair shaft is make up of these fatty acids, Drayer says. Omega-3s are also found in cell membranes in the skin of your scalp, and in the natural oils that keep your scalp and hair hydrated.
Other options: If you don’t like salmon, you can get essential fatty acids from fish like herring, sardines, trout, and mackerel.
2. Walnuts, raw cashews, almonds
These are the only type of nut that have a significant amount of omega-3 fatty acids. They’re also rich in biotin and vitamin E, which helps protect your cells from DNA damage. Since your hair rarely gets much shielding from the sun, this is especially great. Walnuts also have copper, a mineral that helps keep your natural hair color rich and lustrous.
3. Asparagus, spinach, lentils
Is a good source of Iron. The iron, beta carotene, folate, and vitamin C in spinach help keep hair follicles healthy and scalp oils circulating.
But sometimes your scalp needs help from the outside to grow healthy hair.
Hot air from blow dryers, chemicals in hair dyes, hair-care products, and chlorinated water cause damage to hair and leave it dull and brittle. This type of hair requires a healing treatment.
That is where this wonderful product comes in. Beauty Garden Hair Mask
The House of Ayurveda offers the best method for restoring hair. Our natural masks are prepared by utilizing the great knowledge of an ancient holistic medicinal system, called Ayurveda.

Hair rejuvenation mask

The “Beauty Garden” Hair Mask consists of oils, essential oils, vegetable proteins, and healing herbs, which have been used in Ayurveda for thousands of years.
Our masks differ from those sold in stores. They do not contain any preservatives or chemical additives, and are made from fresh and mostly organic ingredients. Their healing power is targeted to penetrate the scalp, restore and strengthen the hair structure, improve the overall condition of hair (balance of dryness and oiliness of hair), and also achieve a calming effect.
Our nourishing masks enhance hair regeneration and are designed to support the hair roots, leading to more flexible, shinier and healthy looking hair*.
Supports robust hair growth, enhances natural color and luster, improves hair strength and thickness.
So my friends please incorporate all of the above (or most of it) and be healthy and happy.
And don’t forget to comb your beautiful hair.

So men, you will have to reevaluate your priories and goals. If your hair is more important for you than your balls – go for it. I still think that many women would prefer the later. Besides a man who takes this stuff and is risking his manhood just for hair is probably missing a few marbles anyway.

PROPECIA side effects

Nice hair!

A new study published today in the Journal of Sexual Medicine suggests that for some men, the sexual side effects of Propecia may last for months to years, even after they stop taking the drug: http://gma.yahoo.com/men-propecias-sexual-side-effects-may-long-lasting-215732153–abc-news-wellness.html

 It has been shown that the drug for Propecia,Finasteride, increases both testosterone and estrogen while lowering serum levels of DHT. The increase in estrogen creates a side effect called gynecomastia, or breast enlargement, in some men, along with increased body fat and loss of libido. http://www.oddee.com/item_96885.aspx

Many men have been left with decreased semen volume, shrunken penis/nuts, impotence, Peyronie’s Disease (crooked penis), decreased mental capacity and total loss of sex drive, to name but a few. Side effects of this drug are very real and can be dangerous for those that get them, as for the most part they seem to be IRREVERSIBLE and PERMANENT. http://www.topix.com/forum/drug/proscar/T0KGFP19QC3CDB54V/

Bold is OK

Alternative to PROPECIA

The much better alternative to loosing your balls and getting breasts – SHAVE YOUR HEAD. At list you keep your brains and your balls. And you save on bras.

Men if you risk your health for hair you have a self esteem issue. Go to the gym. Go meditate. Loose weight.


People have invariably been gullible wherever their hair is concerned. Queen Victoria sipped silver birch wine produced from sap on the grounds that she assumed it could cure her thinning hair. And even with icons like David Beckham shaving off their hair, hairloss is refusing to become trendy. Many guys who suffer from hair loss have an inherited condition called androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness). They have elevated amounts of the hormone called 5(alpha)-reductase, which converts testo-sterone into DHT

More often than not, to begin with your hair starts to recede (thin) from the front. On top of that, the hair usually will become thin at the crown of the head. The hairless area little by little develops in the middle of the scalp. The receding front, as well as the hairless spot on top (the crown) progressively expand and thus join together. Each and every strand of hair you have is rooted inside a very small hole in the skin named a hair follicle.

Baldness in general comes about whenever the hair follicles shrinks over time, causing reduced and finer hair. Ultimately, the follicle will not grow a new hair. Nevertheless, the follicles continue to be alive, which would suggest that it is possible to grow new hair.

At this moment there’s 2 remedies that are proven to deliver the results – finasteride (Propecia/Nourkrin/Viviscal) and minoxidil (called Regaine). Neither of them are obtainable on the National Health Service, which means that you must pay for them.

Minoxidil can be acquired non-prescription as a liquid or foam it is sold under the brand name Regaine. The medical treatment is a vasodilator, which means it increases blood flow for the areas where it is applied. Regaine is used to take care of male pattern baldness for sufferers who’re experiencing gradually thinning hair on the top of the head.
Approximately 8 out of 10 of those who use Regaine 5% Solution and 90% of men that use the Foam notice an improvement to their loss of hair, covering anything from little to modest to thick regrowth.

A number of interesting points about minoxidil include the following. It needs to be applied on the scalp every single day, the treatment needs to be on going indefinitely, it is very costly, it might be effective for some women who have got male pattern baldness, any side effects are rare. For example, skin irritation or rash occasionally occurs.

Take care not to apply Regaine on any part of your skin besides the scalp. Application to other body parts could be dangerous.

Thinning hair remedy.

Fewer but longer!

There are dozens of factors that can contribute to hair loss, from an incorrect diet, illness, stress or poor hair care to basic genetics.

It is determining this factors which is the most significant step to fighting hair loss. This could also include a visit to your doctor.
I am sure you will already know if you are suffering for hair loss. I am sure also that you are aware of the many products that offer guaranteed solutions – whether they are lotions, creams or shampoos nearly all will have little or no effect while costing you a considerable amount of your hard earned cash

I have been there and it is incredibly frustrating.

Clinically Proven Hair Thinning Treatments

Most people that search for an answer to their thinning hair use the shampoos or scalp lotions or creams but modern studies suggest that much more effective results can be achieved by treating your hair from inside i.e. through the blood stream.

When it comes to healthy hair, the hair follicle is all. It’s only when important nutrients cannot reach the hair follicle that the hair falls out. In most cases nutrients are stopped from reaching the hair follicle because of barrier that forms around it. There are now supplements available which break down that barrier enabling the important nutrients to reach your hair follicles reducing thinning hair and in most cases stimulating the growth of new hair.

5 Tips to Slow Hair Loss.

1. Avoid excessive shampooing of your hair. Once per day with a mild, unmedicated shampoo is enough.
2. Avoid aggressive manipulation of your hair when styling etc. If you use hair straighteners or curling irons, be sure to also use thermal protectant. Do not pull hair when brushing or combing and when using tightly bound styles like ponytails etc.
3. Minimize stress in your daily life as this can be an important contributing factor in alopecia. I’m certain there are numerous guides on this website that can help with this.
4. A healthy varied nutritious diet as well as frequent exercise is an important factor in slowing hair loss. It is very important that you are getting all the nutritional requirements it needs. however too much of certain vitamins (A and E) have been show to actually increase hair thinning. Exercise is also key in improving the blood flow to your scalp and so to your follicles. There are of course many other benefits to a balanced diet and exercise
5. Investigate the wide variety of hair loss products offered but try to avoid products that are external only like creams and lotions, they will probably have no effect. Oral hair treatment programmes like Nourkrin or Viviscal have demonstrated proven results over a six month period and are 100% natural products.

It is important to remember that it is perfectly normal to lose about one hundred hairs every day. If you feel that you’re losing much more than this it might probably be a good idea to begin a hair loss treatment program. But keep in mind, if you’re going to shell out money on it, use a product that has been medically tried and tested such as Nourkrin or Viviscal.
