Get Great Hair!
Clinical Herbalist Reviewed on September 5, 2011 by Paulina Nelega, RH
Are you noticing changes to your hair, including loss or thinning? This is one of the most common changes that both men and women experience, especially as we get older.
The most common cause for hair loss in both men and women is ‘hereditary’ hair loss, also known as male or female pattern baldness. It is due to the hormone dihydrotestosterone, DHT, which is made in the hair follicles from testosterone (in both men and women). DHT causes the hair follicles to shrink, leading to less nutrients being provided to the growing hair. The result? Weaker, thinner hair which eventually falls out and may even not regrow.
Can Hair Loss be Helped?
Yes! In many cases, hair loss can be slowed and even stopped.

*The first place to start with any recent physical changes, including hair loss, is a medical check up to rule out any underlying health problems.
