Sun 20 Apr 2008

Can drinking alcohol or wine help fight against hair loss and  prevent me from  going bald?

Balding men and women are always seeking for a cure. Though  none exists to  date, there are a few effective hair loss treatment  options. But in order to determine the proper remedy, one must first address the cause of hair loss.

Because wine and alcohol makes blood vessels dilate, some men and women suffering from androgenic alopecia thought that by increasing blood circulation through drinking, that it could combat  baldness and allow hair growth.

It has also been said by some to rub wine or brandy into the scalp to promote hair regrowth in hair loss suffering men and women. Unfortunately, there is no truth to this.

    Yes, most hair loss is due to androgenic alopecia (genetic hair balding). This article is busting the myth that drinking alcohol works to treat hair loss. But, there is also no evidence that drinking alcohol leads to hair loss either.
