Anyone experiencing excessive hair fall knows that it's a life changing event in many different ways. Rapid loss of hair motivates us to research the cause, as well as the cure, so an extraordinary amount of time can be spent on this issue. The first step in treating hair fall is to identify the cause and then find a treatment that works for that particular cause. Some people prefer natural herbal products; others turn to prescription medications and some opt for surgical methods to stimulate growth of new hair.
One of the products that almost everyone looks for is a hair loss control shampoo that works to revitalize the scalp and stimulate the new growth. Finding the best hair loss shampoo takes patience and some research. Saw Palmetto is one of the herbal ingredients used in most shampoos specifically made for hair growth, because Saw Palmetto has a successful track record for stimulating new hair growth.
An ideal shampoo should clean, as well as nourish the scalp and lead to hair growth. Most hair loss control shampoos reduce the levels of DHT or Dihydrotestostrone in the scalp, DHT or Dihydrotestostrone is a natural metabolite that is responsible for baldness. DHT blocks the vitamins and minerals that the hair follicles needs to sustain life.
Other shampoos are formed to reduce pollution in the follicle, so it's a good idea to pick a shampoo that will do both, or alternate brands to get the benefits of different ingredients. A good anti hair fall shampoo should contain lots of vitamins, grape seed oil and Ginkgo Biloba, as well as other natural herbs like Rosemary, Dong Quai, Saw Palmetto and other herbs that stimulate hair growth.
