A ‘natural hair loss remedy’ using honey and cinnamon, has been published on several alternative medicine websites. Based on an ‘ancient Ayurvedic medicine’, the remedy is purported to reverse hair loss.
Men and women experiencing a receding hairline, patchy hair loss or pattern balding are advised by the writers of these articles to create their own remedy using a handful of kitchen ingredients. Essentially a paste is made from olive oil, honey and cinnamon and then applied to the scalp for around fifteen minutes before being washed off.
No proven results
Although honey has been long recognised as a genuinely useful antiseptic and antibacterial agent, the same cannot be said of its alleged hair regrowth properties. Honey is also a minor source of vitamins and minerals essential to healthy hair growth, such as iron, zinc and vitamin C, but only when eaten – not simply placed on the scalp.
As a result, no genuine hair loss expert, such as those employed by The Belgravia Centre, would advise relying on a honey-based paste for treating a receding hair line or vertex thinning.
Real hair regrowth results are possible
Although diet plays a part in maintaining and retaining healthy hair, it is not usually enough on its own to regrow significant areas of hair loss unless the thinning is directly related to malnutrition. Men and women who notice thinning patches or significant shedding should seek professional advice at the earliest opportunity so that restorative treatment can be started before the loss of hair becomes more noticeable.
Belgravia uses medically-proven treatments to combat hair loss with incredible results. According to each client’s specific needs, our hair loss experts create personalised hair loss treatment plans to reverse hair loss and promote healthy and natural hair regrowth. These often incorporate the only clinically-proven medications Propecia (finasteride 1mg) and Minoxidil.
In addition to the prescription of proven medications, clients at The Belgravia Centre are also offered complementary therapies designed to maximise potential hair regrowth. Known as Hair Growth Boosters, these additional therapies are used to stimulate the hair follicles and increase blood flow to the scalp – both of which are essential for hair growth.
Clients of The Belgravia Centre also receive lifestyle guidance, such as dietary guidelines or exercise advice. Clients may also be offered our unique natural dietary supplement, Hair Vitalics, which contains all the vitamins and minerals essential to healthy hair growth in addition to a number of herbal extracts thought to promote blood flow.
