MensXP.com: Owe it to our flawed genetics or
hectic lifestyles and the falling standards of nutrition in our diets— hair loss
seems to have turned into a healthcare plague.
Use the following home remedies for controlling hair loss:
1. Regular Massaging with Basic Oils
Regular massaging of the scalp with lukewarm oil helps to stimulate the hair
follicles. This is also an easy way to cure hair growth deterrents like dandruff
and fungal infections. Regular massaging increases the blood circulation in the
scalp. It is also useful for lowering anxiety or stress that is often the
underlying reason for thinning of hair.
Recommended oils for 3 to 4 times-a-week massaging schedule includes coconut
oil. You can alternate this with mustard oil. Keep the oil on for at least six
hours before washing it off with a mild shampoo. Other oils that can be mixed
with coconut oil in trace amounts for faster results include almond oil.
2. Natural Concoctions for Preventing Hair Loss
Coconut milk is among the richest sources of tissue-nourishing, plant
derivatives. It is an excellent home remedy for keeping the hair soft without
depending upon chemical formulations and regenerating dead hair follicles. You
can also use a concoction of coconut oil mixed with half the amount of Amla oil.
Just add a dash of lemon juice to this mixture and you have an effective,
dandruff-fighting and scalp-healing concoction that arrests receding hairline.
3. Nature’s Effective Hair-stimulating Juices
Wheatgrass juice is one of the most effective remedies against hair fall. It is
known to decrease the shedding tendency of hair within a few weeks of regular
intake. Aloe vera juice has a similar effect. However, aloe gel can be applied
to the scalp too. This is helpful for preventing hair loss due to irritated, dry
or infected scalp. After massaging the head with aloe gel, wash the hair with
lukewarm water. This can be done twice, every week.
4. Slightly Demanding But Very Effective Natural Therapies
You can make your own hair fall-preventing medicine at home by frying some
fenugreek (methi) seeds in coconut oil. Strain this mixture and apply it in
minimal amounts, rubbed gently into the hair roots. Alternatively, you can boil
some henna leaves in mustard oil. After cooling and straining this preparation,
add drops of it in your coconut oil container that you are using for regular
5. Homemade Pastes
You can wash the hair with a paste made from Neem leaves. This is particularly
effective for hair loss caused due excessive build up of scalp oil or invasive
skin infections. For restoring the alkaline balance of the scalp and preventing
hair fall, you can follow this with washing the hair with apple cider vinegar.
Other homemade pastes that can be very useful include a mixture prepared from
adding honey and olive oil to some cinnamon (dalchini) powder.
6. Arrest Hair Fall With Elementary Household Items
Before washing your hair, apply the juice extracted from crushed coriander (dhania)
leaves. You can also use a mixture of curd and gram flour (chana atta) that
should be kept-on for at least an hour before bathing.
7. Hair Fall Dietary Recommendations
For a comprehensive, hair fall prevention regimen, you need to be equipped with
a diet plan that includes foods that can arrest hair fall and stimulate better
scalp health. Recommendations here include eating more seeds and nuts (almonds
and peanuts) along with green leafy vegetables like spinach and sprouts of a
variety of dals (legumes).
Basically, foods rich in calcium, protein and iron are vital for ensuring
overall health of the scalp. Combine this with some basic dietary
supplementation, i.e. using over-the-counter products that help to ensure
wholesome nutrition for your hair.
Regular intake of Amla juice ensures adequate amounts of Vitamin C but you can
boost this with eating more guavas. Ensure you take a multivitamin that combines
beta-carotenes, Vitamin B complex, Vitamin E and trace amounts of zinc and iron.
