Here some methods to halt hairloss and even regrow your hairline. They don’t involve powerful drugs that can cause negative side effects. Some of these methods are common sense, others are less intuitive. I can’t ensure they will work since genetics plays by far the biggest role.
The best Foods and Herbs
It occurred to me why not check out the ingredients for some of the highest rated hair-growth supplements available on a site like Amazon.
Instead of buying the expensive product yourself you could always just purchase foods that contain many of the same ingredients.
One such product is Hairgenics Pronexa Hair Grow Supplement which has an almost 5 star review from currently 344 customers. It sells at $39.99
Hairgenics Pronexa contains the following ingredients. You will notice that some foods appear many times as good for preventing hair loss. I’ve highlighted these in bold. These include foods such as mushrooms, nuts, pumpkin seeds and spinach.

Natural Home Remedy for Hair Loss
According to a study reported in Organic Facts health publication, medical studies have verified that lavender essential oil massaged into the scalp three times a week was effective in growing new hair for male patients. Here is a lavender oil home remedy recipe that has proven effective in clinical studies. In a small container:
1. Add 3 drops lavender oil to 3 drops rosemary essential oil.
2. Pour in 4 tsp. of grape-seed oil and 1/2 teaspoon of jojoba oil.
3. Stir all the ingredients until it is mixed well. Place it all in a cool, dry location.
4. Add 2 drops of thyme oil and 2 drops of cedar wood.
5. Test this mixture on a tiny spot of your scalp (patch test) to ensure you are not allergic to any of the ingredients.
6. If there is no rash from this recipe 24 hours after you have done the test patch, you should be safe in using it.
7. Massage enough into your scalp to cover it. Do this three times per week. After a few months, you should begin to see new hair growth where your hairline is receding.
What you should avoid
Have you noticed every time you wash your hair you see numerous hairs in the sink after washing. This is normal and to be expected. However excessive hair washing does lead to hair loss. Consider washing your hair less.
Avoid hair products that contain chemicals or toxins that lead to hair loss, or example hair dyes, particularly hair bleaching. This will inevitably result in weaker hair and hair follicles leading to accelerated hair loss.
Avoid stress as this can cause red blood cells from nourishing the hair follicles. Extream stress – known as Telogen – can even cause the hair to fall out. To avoid stress you could try yoga and other forms of meditation. Also a change in diet can reduce stress.
