Top Three Best Plant Based Products For Hair Growth — Traction Alopecia Treatment

Trac­tion alope­cia unlike other forms of hair loss is caused by mechan­i­cal dam­age with is self inflicted. Peo­ple who suf­fer from hor­monal forms of hair loss such as Andro­genic Alope­cia have no con­trol over the hor­monal imbal­ances that cause their forms of hair loss. Trac­tion Alope­cia suf­fer­ers can­not make the same claim. In the case of trac­tion alope­cia, the hair fol­li­cle which sits inside the scalp is trau­ma­tised from all the exces­sive pulling or force that is being applied to the hair strand that grows out of it.

Because the human body is such an amaz­ing machine it keeps heal­ing itself (that is the fol­li­cle keeps regen­er­at­ing) and pro­duc­ing new hair until the same thing hap­pens again. We apply too much pres­sure on the hair and more or less rip it out of the fol­li­cle. When this cycle is repeated over a num­ber of years, the hair fol­li­cle starts to gather scar tis­sue until even­tu­ally it is unable to regrow new hairs due to all the scar tis­sue that has amassed in the fol­li­cle. It is at this point that the only solu­tion to regrow­ing hair is hav­ing a hair transplant.

If you have been suf­fer­ing from Trac­tion Alope­cia for a num­ber of years you can still try regrow­ing the lost hair. You’ll never know if it is too late for your dam­aged hair fol­li­cles until you’ve made a con­certed effort to coax your dam­aged hair fol­li­cles into pro­duc­ing new hairs. Tri­chol­o­gist advise using hair stim­u­lants like minox­i­dil. Minox­i­dil is really a mild stim­u­lant that takes up to three or four months before you can even begin to see results. It is advised that users spar­ingly apply drops of minox­i­dil to their scalps twice a day. As soon as the drop is applied, it should be pat­ted into the scalp very gen­tly using a fin­ger to increase cov­er­age across the scalp. Minox­i­dil works by stim­u­lat­ing the hair fol­li­cle for two hours at a time, so using the drops twice a day stim­u­lates the fol­li­cle for four hours every­day pro­vided you use it twice a day and reli­giously as your tri­chol­o­gist recommends.

What other options are there to stim­u­late your hair fol­li­cles so that if they can pro­duce new hairs in areas you’ve more or less ripped your own hair out? There are quite a few stim­u­lat­ing treat­ments that are excel­lent for increas­ing scalp cir­cu­la­tion and stim­u­lat­ing hair follicles.

Rene Furterer RF 80 Strength­en­ing For­mula 12 piece is another plant based prod­uct that we absolutely love.
