    Can Hair Loss or Alopecia Be Reversed Naturally?

    Will Smith’s slapping of Chris Rock at the recent Oscars ceremony unknowingly shone a light on Jada Pinkett Smith’s struggles with alopecia and this hair loss condition. Alopecia is a general term that refers to any form of hair loss, and this disorder can have many different causes.

    A common condition affecting both women and men and can be embarrassing or upsetting, especially in a social setting. Hair loss can be the result of a number of factors, namely:

    • heredity,
    • hormonal changes,
    • certain medical conditions
    • stress
    • poor nutrition
    • aging.

    The good news is with more modern research and the emergence of science-based solutions, now there are ways to help treat alopecia effectively—even in the comfort of your own home!


    Do Home Remedies Really Help?

    Nowadays you can easily google a range of home remedies that are popular with people who are experiencing hair loss. However, do note that, to date, many of these remedies are not backed by extensive research.

    Remedy #1: Massage

    A Japanese study showed that regular scalp massages can help increase the thickness of your hair, although it did not show an improvement in hair growth. Researchers believe that this could be due to improved blood circulation and stimulation of the hair follicles.

    Remedy #2: Red Ginseng

    There have also been cases of red ginseng helping the promotion of hair growth when taken as a supplement.

    However, before taking any supplements, do check if it interferes with any medication or existing conditions that you might have.

    Remedy #3: Fatty Acids

    A deficiency in essential fatty acids is a risk factor of hair loss. To speed up the regeneration of hair follicles and stimulate hair growth, use the omega-6 fatty acid arachidonic acid.


    Remedy #4: Coconut Oil

    The versatility of coconut oil makes it a hair and skin care favourite. It can be used to treat various types of hair damage and as a pre- and post-wash hair product.

    Coconut oil is believed to help reduce protein loss in both damaged and undamaged hair. It has the capability to penetrate the hair shaft.

    Remedy #5: Aloe Vera

    Another natural remedy similar to coconut oil, aloe vera has long been used as a treatment of hair loss—as far back as 6,000 years ago in Ancient Egypt! Evidence has shown that its soothing effect can help alleviate certain hair and skin conditions.
