Thinning Hair Treatment
If you’re looking for a thinning hair treatment, make sure you’re not overreacting to natural shedding. It’s normal for people to lose from 50 to 100 strands of hair each day, with new hair growing from the same follicles. The problem begins when the follicles over time give up production, which leads to thinning hair and baldness. However, there are genetic and hormonal reasons for both male and female pattern hair loss, called ‘androgenetic alopecia’. The good news is that there are two prescription medications approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia for the treatment of alopecia – Minoxidil (applied to the scalp) and Finasteride (an oral medication). Such approval means they work, although different people have differing results.
People will commonly try anything to stop thinning hair, including home remedies. Few of them have any solid backing in science, but if you’re worried about your thin hair and want to try them, always ask your doctor for advice first.
- Eat hair-healthy foods – Proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals are crucial. Eat eggs, Brazil nuts, fatty fish and walnuts. Also eat beef liver, mushrooms and cheese for Vitamin D which can help you avoid thinning hair.
- Essential oils – Some people find they work – but do dilute them with olive or coconut oil. Try rosemary oil, peppermint oil, lavender, cedarwood, thyme, and a good scalp massage.
Other natural remedies people swear by (no scientific evidence) for thinning hair treatments include onion juice, capsaicin (found in chillies), ginseng, garlic gel, caffeine, and some alternative therapies such as acupuncture and hypnotherapy to reduce stress which can lead to hair thinning.

Other than that, the rest of the content is fine. I only suggest this change because the articles mention a lot about natural remedies such as oils, onion juice etc, so we want to emphasise our medical/clinical approach as our point of difference.
