This Week's Word From the OG I recently had a client say to me that her hair used to be her Crown and Glory, but now that is was thinning, she did not feel that way. She is not alone. I reminded her that "she is not her hair"( ~ India Arie) and that Glory comes from within where her beautiful "Spirit" dwells.
There is help for thinning and hair loss. Moreover, you are not alone. The causes of hair loss can be many, but there are practical things that you can do to improve the condition of your hair. For one, you can work to eliminate stress by avoiding people and things that make you uncomfortable. There may be dietary changes that you can make. A good exercise regimen can improve your circulation, which is essential for healthy hair and scalp. Avoiding tight hairstyles may also improve the condition of your hair.
Finally, for more chronic issues of hair loss, you may need to seek professional help. You may want to seek out a dermatologist. If you would like to take a holistic approach, determining the root cause of your hair loss would be the most thorough approach. As a Licensed Holistic Esthetician, I help my clients discover the internal and external factors of your hair loss. Once we know the root of the problem, we develop a 90-day plan to address the issues. As a result, you will improve the condition of your hair and scalp.
Did you know that Rosemary has been used for centuries to stimulate hair growth? Rosemary's antimicrobial and antibacterial properties deep clean the scalp down to the hair follicle ridding it of harmful bacteria that may cause thinning and hair loss.
Rosemary increases circulation at the root, which allows healthy blood flow. Healthy circulation is essential, as it allows the root and the follicle to receive nutrition by way of the bloodstream. Rosemary helps the condition Androgenetic Alopecia (male pattern baldness). Historically, the herb Rosemary has been used to improve an itchy scalp and prevents premature graying.
