Losing your hair to where it thins or you become bald does not have to happen.
Just by understanding why your hair falls out and thins allows you to take counter measures. Discover what counter measures you need to take to keep your hair full, thick, or from thinning.

There are various ways to keep your hair clean, shiny, and thick. If you still have hair and want to keep it or if your hair is starting to thin out, here are some hair remedies that you can use.

When your hair starts to thin, three of the reasons are:

* Your hair follicles are slowly becoming clogged and preventing hair from growing out

* Your hair is not receiving the nutrients it needs to grow and stay strong

* Your hair is not getting enough blood circulating in your scalp

I will cover only the first of the two items.

Clogged Hair Follicles

Hair follicles can become clogged, just like the pores on your face. In acne a plugged follicle results in sebum and bacteria becoming trapped in the follicle, which leads to an infection known as a pimple.

When a hair follicle becomes plugged on your scalp, the hair in that follicle becomes trapped and is prevented from coming to the surface. Over time, your scalp becomes smooth and you become bald or lose most of your hair.

So the secret to preventing hair loss, thinning and balding is to prevent your hair follicles from becoming clogged, and feeding your hair. Once you know what causes your follicle to plug, you can avoid or counteract those conditions.

Here is what causes your follicles to become clogged.

* Excessive build up of testosterone in blood converting over to DHT and plugging up your hair follicles

* Use of shampoos, conditioners, and gels that contain excessive un-natural chemical that stay on your scalp and get trapped in your follicles

* Excessive release of sebum and scalp flaking mixing together to form a hard material that plugs up your follicles.

DHT Build Up in Your Follicle

The excessive conversions of testosterone into DHT accumulates in the hair follicles at the base of the hair strand. There are a variety of shampoos you can use on your hair and scalp to dissolve this DHT. In addition, some natural essential oils have been found to help significantly. Massage these into your scalp when you wash and after. This helps keeps your pores open, your hair strong, and growing normally. There are also various medical and herbal capsules that prevent the conversion of testosterone into DHT.

Un-natural Shampoo and Conditioners Cause Hair Loss

Most shampoos, conditioners, and hair gels are created using petrochemicals, un-natural additives, dyes, preservatives that are harmful to your hair and scalp.

In addition, these un-natural hair product chemicals get into your pores and can clog them. Once in the follicle, they also get into your blood and are harmful to your liver and the rest of your body.

An easy remedy to this problem is, to search for more natural shampoo products, which contain fewer petrochemicals and have more herbs with natural cleansing properties.

Excessive Sebum and Scalp Flaking

When the hair follicle releases excess oil, called sebum, it accumulates on the scalp. Here it will combine with dirt, dead scalp cells, and shampoo chemical residues to form an impenetrable layer on the scalp. After this layer accumulates, it becomes almost impossible for hair to penetrate through.

If you use any type of gel to style your hair, these gels combine with sebum to plug up your follicles. Using natural remedies reduces the amount of chemical available to combine with excess sebum and dead scalp cells.

How To Reopen Your Hair Follicles

To keep your hair and scalp clean and follicles open, use aloe vera gel mixed with a few drops of jojoba oil. Buy aloe vera gel, 99% pure and pure jojoba oil. Put some aloe vera gel in your hand and add 4-5 drops of jojoba oil. Rub your hands together then rub this mixture into your hair. This mixture will keep your hair shiny and thick and your hair follicles open.

Just making these changes to your hair care will go a long way in keeping your hair from thinning any further
