Struggling with hair fall issues? Tired of applying chemicals and other products to stop hair fall? Does nothing seem to work in your favor?
Well, you are not alone. Every woman out there suffered from the exact same problem at some point in their life. And when nothing seems to work, they always tried their luck with natural home remedies. But then again, very few know what to put on their hair and whatnot. And that’s why, after extensive research, we have listed a few effective home remedies that you can use in order to stop hair fall and promote new hair growth so that you never have to suffer from baldness ever in your life.
So, without further ado, let’s start because it’s time to take good care of your precious tresses.
1. Try Hot Coconut Oil Massage
Coconut oil is the magic potion for your weak, breakable hair. Besides having antimicrobial and antioxidants properties, this magic is also super-rich in carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals and incorporates a large number of fatty acids that strengthen the hair roots and makes sure that they are healthy, well-nourished and doesn’t suffer from premature fall.
When you massage hot coconut oil in your hair locks, it not only stimulates the blood flow of the scalp but at the same time also penetrates deep into the hair shafts to provide the required nutrients to them- this massaging process makes the hair follicles super strong and reduces hair fall by several notches.
Hair experts recommend including the hot coconut oil massage (we prefer the Viva Naturals Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil) at least twice a week in your hair care routine to see visible results quickly.
2. Adopt the Right Diet
Be very careful about what you eat and drink- bad food habits and a busy, stressful lifestyle can lead to severe hair fall. Also, deficiencies in vitamins H, D, and E can contribute to hair loss even more. Hair experts, as well as nutritionists, always suggest that you have a balanced diet that includes enough proteins, vitamins, carbohydrates as well as sufficient water to not only reduce hair fall and restore hair growth but also to make your tresses healthy and strong from within.
You can also take protein and vitamin supplements but remember that these supplements have severe side effects and cause serious health problems.
3. Limit Using Hot Styling Tools
Over usage of heated styling tools, like a straightener or a curling iron, has an extremely adverse effect on your manes; the high heat from the tools strip out hair’s natural oil making them dry and brittle which eventually leads to hair breakage and premature hair fall.
If you are someone who needs to style their tresses often, we would suggest that you ditch the other hot styling tools and adopt heated hair rollers because the hot rollers (like this Caruso Molecular Steam Hair setter) don’t generate as much heat and are not as damaging to your precious hair locks.
4. Apply Onion Juice
As much as you may hate the idea of massaging onion juice to your hair locks, this smelly vegetable is incredibly helpful for the health and well-being of your tresses; onion juice is super rich in sulfur content that, when applied into the hair roots promotes blood circulation of the hair follicles, boosts hair growth and prevents hair loss. The sulfur in the juice also fights infections of the scalp to make sure that the infections don’t contribute to the existing hair fall problem.
Gently apply the onion juice with a cotton ball all over your scalp and leave it for 20-30 minutes and then wash off with a mild shampoo to get rid of the strong smell. Try this at least twice a week to see visible results.
5. Opt for Rosemary Oil
Dry, flaky scalp, dandruff, and infections- the un-holy trinity that heavily contributes to severe hair loss and one way to treat these conditions successfully and control hair fall is by applying rosemary oil to your scalp and hair on a regular basis. This essential oil has superior antibacterial and antioxidant properties that not only control hair loss but at the same time treats your affected scalp to provide noticeable hair regrowth quickly.
6. Try an Egg Honey Mask
Another hair loss remedy that actually works is an egg honey hair mask. While an egg is super rich in protein and other minerals, honey has moisturizing and antibacterial properties which, when applied together as a mask acts as one of the best cure to prevent hair fall and promote hair regrowth. This amazing mask also helps to reverse the damage and make your tresses well-nourished, silky and smooth.
Mix a whole egg, a teaspoon of honey and olive oil (to get rid of the smell) in a mixing bowl and apply gently to your clean, wet manes. Let the mask sit in your tresses for at least 10 minutes so that the hair strands can soak the nutrients from the mask to treat themselves from the inside out.
7. Don’t Forget About Amla (Indian Gooseberry)
One of the possible causes of hair loss is Vitamin C deficiency, and as amla (a miraculous Indian superfood) is a powerful source of Vitamin C and antioxidants, it provides the necessary strength to the hair follicles and helps to prevent hair fall noticeably. The Vitamin C present in the amla also builds collagen in the hair roots which is extremely important for hair growth.
One easy and effective way to use amla is by applying it with coconut oil; boil 2/3 amla with coconut oil until the oil turns black and then it gently into your hair and scalp once the oil cools down. Leave it for no more than 30 minutes and wash your hair as usual.
8. Include Aloe Vera in Your Routine
Aloe Vera can do wonders to your tresses- this gel not only reduces hair loss but at the same time it also promotes new hair growth. Aloe Vera tends to play a significant role in balancing the pH levels of your manes and the scalp to treat the scalp and make sure that your hair strands remain intact in place.
Mix Aloe gel with coconut oil and apply the mixture gently on your hair locks as well as the scalp. Let the solution sit for 20 minutes before rinsing it with lukewarm water. To see visible changes quickly, apply this magic portion at least three times a weak.
