Hair Loss Solutions
When my brother started losing hair, he panicked. He searched the
internet, bought a lot of related magazines, browsed through
relevant books at the bookstore. He did everything - EVERYTHING -
save for asking other people about his problem. He felt embarrassed,
you see. He didn't want anyone to know about his creeping baldness.
He felt that he could find a hair loss solution by himself, and he
didn't need to tell people about it... not his family members, not
his closest friends.
He tuned in to those infomercials on TV. Yup! He did some home
shopping, and ordered a variety of products, like chemical sprays
and horse shampoos. He hoped that one of them would make his hair
Suffice to say, he gave up on home TV shopping after a few weeks.
Distraught, my brother approached me for some advice, something he
has become used to ever since we were kids. I tried to console him
by reminding him that hair does not dictate the worth of a person...
his heart does. That didn't help much, of course. He still wanted
his hair back, and admittedly, I'm no expert when it comes to
suggesting hair loss solution.
But knowing that I stood by his side during those trying times
helped him cope up with his then emerging problem. Together, we
tried to scour every available resource for a cure to his problems.
There were times when we thought we stumbled on something rewarding,
only to have our hearts crushed by the failure of such an option.
With our floundering hopes, we decided to consult with a real hair
expert. The hair loss solution that the said expert provided us with
was something we never considered before, and something we would
never have considered if we continued with our blind search for a
"Notice how baldness was never a big problem before the 20th
century?" I remember him asking. "It's because nature, by itself,
has its way of taking care of our bodies."
He did make sense, and my brother agreed. We followed his advice,
and sought out some herbal cures. We tried shampoos imbued with
vitamins B6 and B12. We formulated a diet that was rich with
potassium, zinc, biotins, certain amino acids, and other
bio-nutrients. We tried to limit my brother's intake of vitamins A
and E, supplementing his diet with nothing more than the daily
recommended allowance. My brother massaged his scalp regularly with
And lo and behold! In just 2 short months, his hair loss dwindled.
We look back at those times with laughter now. It was quite amusing
to think that we scampered for a hair loss solution, when all the
hair loss remedy we ever needed was well within our reach.
