Is baldness really hereditary?
Baldness, a partial or complete loss of hair, occurs more often in men than in women. Known causes of baldness include hereditary factors, aging, and reaction to drugs. However, is it true that baldness can occur because of hereditary reasons? Yes, but it’s rare and this usually isn’t the cause.
The information in this article may help you if you are losing your hair daily and to possibly change your inherited baldness DNA.
## Why natives tend to have stronger healthy hair?
If you travel around, you may notice that tribal people including those living in remote provinces wear thick and strong hair. Of course, this is a very interesting subject for scientists as well as myself, so I immediately started to collect information about their lives. While I was trying to gather this information, I learned a very interesting fact that many Iranians, Pakistanis, and other Far Eastern people have yellowish or brownish teeth, even though they brush their teeth every day.
I requested my scientist friends to provide all these reasons and I received a very reasonable reply. They said that it is because of the “water” they use that contains mostly of fluoride. In our area, we add fluoride to the public water system to avoid tooth decay. In their areas, water naturally contains a high amount of fluoride.
How do they live? What do they eat every day? What do they use for soap or shampoo? What are the histories of their ancestors? From the above information, I came to think that minerals in the water, the foods they eat, and their lifestyle, have something to do that could either prevent or lead to baldness.
## Bald people are rare among natives
We seldom see bald people especially among the natives in the Amazon area, deep Indonesian provinces, and indigenous people living in forests or jungles. The secret lies on soap and shampoo they use. It is because these native people use water with mineral contents. One is clay, which we use to make a pot. We have noticed that most natives use water that contains earth clay as a part of soap. We believe the clay contains bentonite, which works in cleaning the root hair.
Aside from this, they also use oil extracted from Aloe vera and cacti (the same ingredients found in commercial shampoos). These oils, liquids, and even coconut oil, are essential to hair growth. Even products manufactured by shampoo industries use Aloe vera, coconut oil, and vegetable oil, as main ingredients.
## What you eat contributes to hair growth
We have noticed that people in Mexico and Peru eat cactus steak (baked or fried cactus with salt and spices like that of beefsteak) and have healthy hair. Aloe Vera, cactus, and other vegetables that are rich in calcium, vitamins, and other unknown minerals, are essential to healthy hair.
Medical books say that seaweeds can contribute to hair growth. However, even people in Okinawa, Japan, where most of their daily foods are seaweeds, are not convinced that it can help stop baldness. Seaweeds are definitely good for extending lifespan, though.
## 5 Things You Can Do to Stimulate Hair Growth Naturally
1. Use water from deep well for hair care. Avoid using tap water.
2. Use clay moistened with water, which works like shampoo and is good to clean the hair roots.
3. Apply vegetable oils daily. Camellia oil is recommended for its aromatic contents. Cold processed coconut oil is beneficial for hair growth, too.
4. Apply Aloe vera and cactus juice daily.
5. Eat vegetables every day as they are valuable sources of vitamins, minerals and fiber.
By doing all the above, your hair will be healthy in three months.
