Hair loss is a big problem for many people. It is caused by numerous factors such as environmental effects, aging, stress, smoking, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalance, genetic factors, infections, chemically enriched hair products and various diseases.
Your scalp has more than 100 000 strands of hair, and losing 50-100 of them daily is seen as normal. However, lose more than that, and you’re dealing with a big problem.
Here are some of the best natural remedies for hair loss:
Coconut oil is great for your hair – not only it stimulates hair growth, it also acts as a conditioner. Coconut oil contains nutrients that prevent hair damage and hair loss.
In order to use it on your hair, warm up some coconut oil, then massage it onto your scalp before washing your hair as usual after an hour. You can also grate a coconut and squeeze its milk, mixing it with some water. Apply the mixture on the balding areas, cover your hair with a shower cap and let it stay overnight. Wash your hair as usual in the morning.
Onion is rich in Sulphur, an element that stimulates hair growth by increasing collagen production. Using it regularly will prevent hair fall.
Chop an onion and squeeze its juice, then apply it on your scalp and let it stay for 15 minutes. Rinse your hair with a milder shampoo, and repeat the process twice a week for best results.
Garlic also contains Sulphur, and is one of the most frequent ingredients in homemade hair remedies.
Crush a few garlic cloves, then add coconut oil and boil the mixture for a couple of minutes. Allow the mixture to cool down for a bit, then apply it on your hair and scalp, leaving it on for half an hour before washing your hair. Repeat the process twice a week for best results.
Eggs contain proteins and nutrients which can prevent hair fall. They are rich in Sulphur, phosphorus, selenium, iodine and zinc – elements that stimulate hair growth.
Take one egg white and mix it with a teaspoon of olive oil, then apply the resulting paste on your scalp and hair. Leave it to work for 15-20 minutes, then rinse your hair with a mild shampoo.
