Everyone experiences hair fall each day. So, if you see some hair falling while combing or brushing, it’s natural. An average human being loses about 80 hair strands on a daily basis, as strands complete their normal life cycle. But when you see abnormal loss of hair, it’s time you should get a hair growth treatment.
Think About Your Activities
Abnormal hair loss occurs due to many reasons, such as:
- Unhealthy lifestyle
- Imbalanced diet
- Junk foods
- Smoking, drinking alcohol or using drugs
- Particular medication,
- Vitamin or protein deficiency
- Thyroid or menopause, etc.
- Male pattern baldness is another common issue leading to hair loss.
- Using the wrong products to wash your hair
As hair loss is best explored on a holistic level, it is best to speak to a scalp professional or a trichologist to understand the underlying cause and symptoms and the other steps you can take to complement your hair care and scalp treatment.
Traditionally, natural remedies such as oils have been used across different cultures to hydrate dry and damaged hair and to boost hair growth. In order to harness the healing powers of these oils for moisture and hair loss treatment, mix 1 drop per 5ml of shampoo. However, oils come in different concentrations and we recommend checking with a scalp professional before deciding if your scalp type is suitable for the addition of oils.
Home Remedies For Hair Growth
1. Coconut Oil
One of the best remedies against hair fall, coconut oil contains fatty acids and is used extensively in Asia. It works as a sealant that helps keep your hair moist. Moreover, the oil contains an ample amount of lauric acid which has antibacterial properties. It also provides nutrients required for shiny, natural hair.
2. Olive Oil
Not only do olives keep you healthy and smart, they can help you keep healthy and nourishing hair. Olive oil has many antioxidants to maintain nutrition requirement of your hair. Some noteworthy advantages include:
- It penetrates hair follicles better, control DHT hormone, and prevents hair shafts from narrowing down.
- Olive oil contains mono unsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E, both helpful in hair growth as well as preventing hair fall.
3. Almond Oil
Almond oil is rich in Vitamin E, Vitamin D, calcium, iron, magnesium and fats. If you’re applying essential oils, you can use almond oil as carrier oil. As it is absorbed slowly, it gets deep inside the hair and provides the right base for essential oils. So, if you want to get the best natural hair and scalp treatment, apply herbal oil followed by essential oil.
4. Lavender Oil Massage
Lavender oil is useful in more ways than one. Besides that wonderful fragrance of lavender flowers, it contains some amazing benefits for hair.
- It has antioxidant nutrients
- It has antiseptic properties
- It has antifungal properties
- It treats dandruffs, hair breakage and itching
- Lavender oil is a great treatment for alopecia – a condition when a person loses hair in patches. Apply this oil daily to stimulate hair growth.
5. Rosemary Oil
As the name suggests, rosemary oil is extracted from rosemary leaves. It falls in the category of essential oils that help prevent hair loss issues, such as alopecia areata.
One of the major causes of hair loss is due to uneven blood circulation in the scalp. Rosemary oil increases the blood flow which leads to increasing hair growth. Before using rosemary oil, you can improve its performance by applying any carrier oil (almond oil, grapeseed oil or Jojoba oil) before it
With the right treatments, you can easily prevent hair fall in the matter of weeks. But be consistent and massage your head regularly and be sure to monitor for any signs of sensitivity or irritation.
