The most common alternative remedies thought to help ward off balding include rubbing sage oil or camphor into the top of the head, or using a shampoo which contains menthol to help stimulate the scalp.
Popular natural 'cures' for hair loss include Ginkgo Biloba, Stinging Nettles and Panax Ginseng, whilst a recent study also claimed pumpkin seed oil, taken orally, may be beneficial to those wanting to stop hair loss.
However, there is no scientific proof that these alternative remedies and natural hair loss ‘cures’ actually work.
Whilst the massaging action of applying the sage oil, and the tingling effect of camphor and menthol may stimulate the scalp, increasing blood flow to the area to help maintain the health of the existing hair, none of these natural oils actively prevent hair loss or promote regrowth.
Instead, it is possible to compliment clinical regrowth programmes with these natural remedies, using them to help boost the effects of your hair loss treatments.
The Belgravia Centre offers their own natural dietary supplement, a herbal Hair Growth Booster called Hair Vitalics. These capsules should be taken daily and are packed with important nutrients like Saw Palmetto, to ensure your hair is as healthy as possible as it grows through.
A 12 month supply of Hair Vitalics can be included free of charge when you purchase an annual course of treatment.
