Autumn and winter are the worst seasons for my hair. It goes out of my head quicker than I can say antidisestablishmentarianism !!! It’s probably got something to do with falling leaves – they wither and fall to the ground so my hair thinks it can do that as well.
To keep my sanity and some tresses on my balding head I use various lotions and potions. The best remedy so far is medicine for upset tummy called stomach drops. Stomach drops for hair loss??!! I know it may sound crazy but it really works. It stops shedding right away. At least it does for me, but everyone is different and there are many other reasons for losing hair, apart from the change of season.
Stomach drops I always buy contain St John’s wort, peppermint and valerian. Saint John’s wart has an anti-inflammatory properties and helps treat dandruff. It is often used to cure alopecia areata. Moreover, it improves circulation of oxygenated blood in skin cells and that may stimulate hair growth.
Peppermint is rich in iron, magnesium, calcium, vitamins A and C, potassium, manganese and copper. It also contains menthol which sooths and relives discomfort. Peppermint, just like St John’s wort, has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It can treat dry scalp and dandruff as well as normalize the sebum secretion.
As for valerian, it addresses very similar scalp and hair problems as the herbs I’ve mentioned before.
These three ingredients combined together make a potent remedy for hair loss. All you have to do is to mix one teaspoon of stomach drops with three tablespoons of water and apply it to your scalp. Keep the mixture for an hour and then wash your hair as usual. Use stomach drops as often as you need. If you don’t mind its strong aroma and have no allergic reactions, you can apply it every day, just as I do.
If you are tired of extracting a handful of hair every time you step out of the shower, pop into the nearest chemist’s and buy a bottle of stomach drops. It might be just the thing for your hairy problem.
