What Causes Hair Loss and How to Stimulate Healthy Hair Growth


Hair Loss can be caused by a variety of reasons.  When I was in my twenties I had alopecia due to stress.  I know what you’re thinking about “stress” in your twenties.  I stressed about everything back then, even growing older 😉and as I grew older I learned to accept the aging process with an open heart.   My hair eventually grew back, after being treated with Vitamin B injections in the affected areas.   

Stress is a culprit that spark changes in your body’s routine physiological functions, certain medication can also change the physiological balance in your system, diet, lifestyle changes, illness, fungus infections, and genetics are just a few issues that can affect your hair growth.

Did you know that 90% of your hair goes through a growing phase that lasts approximately 2 – 3 years and grows about 1/2″ per month?.  It then goes through a resting phase lasting  3 – 4 months before the hair falls out and new hair is replaced.     Typically we shed approximately 100 hairs each day, it may seem like a lot but it’s not.  A head full of hair usually is 120,000-150,000 strands of hair. 

How to Stimulate Hair Growth

1.  Eat Healthily
2.  Drink lots of water to hydrate
3.  Exercise
4.  Don’t smoke
5.  Keep the scalp clean
6.  Use gentle Shampoo (natural/organic)
7.  Use hydrating conditioner (natural/organic)
8.  Massage scalp regularly
9.  Don’t use too many products as they will build up and clog
10. Use a silk scarf at night to tie hair or a silk pillowcase

In addition, you can mix a couple teaspoons of white vinegar with a cup of water and rinse your hair.  It's a good way to cleanse and stimulate your scalp and leaves a beautiful shine.  A few drops of peppermint oil in a spray bottle with water is also invigorating.  

These tips worked for me, try them and see if they make a difference for you.

The Skin

The Skin Skin is the body's largest organ and is responsible for numerous essential bodily functions, including breathing oxygen, eliminating carbon dioxide and other forms of waste, acting as a shield against toxins from the outside, and helping to maintain body temperature.  The skin is continually repairing and renewing itself.  It responds almost instantly to sudden changes in emotions, and who would have guessed that it is the body's main organ of sexual attraction.  The surface layer of the skin, which is composed of cells, sweat pores, and sebaceous glands, is covered with a thin sheath of dead cells, which are continually being pushed up to the surface from below.  If the dead cells are not removed, they can reduce and even block the skin's effort to breathe and eliminate waste.  At the surface lies a slightly acidic coating of oil, called the acid mantle, which can protect the skin against some bacteria.  Below the surface is a complex of sweat and oil glan

Chakras

Chakras   Energy from the spiritual, mental, and etheric planes which we use for healing, enters the physical plane through energy centers called chakras. The energy from the higher planes directly affects our emotions and our physical health.  We all have seven chakras (chakra means the wheel).  They appear within us as wheel-like openings on the surface of our etheric body.  They appear like long, thin funnels with a larger opening on the surface (kinda like an old hearing device).   Chakras are like terminals in which energy (prana) is transferred from the higher planes to the physical body.  Chakras can become blocked on the higher planes thus affecting the energy system which creates physical disease.  When chakras become blocked, it is necessary to open and balance them to maintain good health.  If the person does not have a medical condition, bringing the chakras into balance will promote rapid healing and recovery.    The First Chakra   Also, call the "R
