Natural Remedies For Hair Loss


Published:

In a world where many of our ills and ailments are treated with medication or surgery, natural remedies often go overlooked. Hair loss is quickly falling into this trap, but with medical tourism making otherwise expensive procedures accessible, it’s far more common for those suffering from hair loss to start searching for the most affordable but effective hair transplant techniques, such as the FUE hair transplant (follicular unit extraction), in some of the leading medical tourism destinations around the world. However, natural remedies could provide more of a benefit than you may realise and often without having to spend lavishly on specialist products or treatments.

Check Your Vitamin Intake

As with any part of your body, your hair needs the right vitamins and minerals to stay strong and healthy. For this reason, the first thing you need to do when it comes to fostering the right conditions for hair growth is to check your vitamin intake. To optimise hair growth, you need: -

Vitamin A – Vitamin A is the key nutrient needed to enhance growth of every cell in your body and this includes your hair. Milk, eggs, yogurt, spinach, carrots, sweet potatoes and kale are good sources of vitamin A if you believe you may be deficient.

Vitamin B – Vitamin B is key for the movement of oxygen and other nutrients directly to your scalp. Without this, your hair is unlikely to grow in a healthy condition, and most likely, very slowly. Whole grains, meats, leafy greens and seafood are all good sources of vitamin B.

Vitamin C – Vitamin C is needed for the creation of collagen, which ultimately helps you to prevent signs and symptoms of aging. Citrus fruits, peppers and guava all provide vitamin C, ultimately giving your hair the youthful lease on life that it needs.

Iron – Iron is the driving force behind your red blood cells and without it, they wouldn’t be able to carry oxygen around your body. Iron deficiency ultimately causes anemia, which leads to hair loss. Eat eggs, red meat, spinach and lentils for a boost of iron.

Zinc – Without zinc, the oil glands in your scalp would be deficient. This nutrient plays a part in hair and tissue growth, so ensuring that you’re eating enough beef, spinach, lentils, pumpkin seeds and other foods high in zinc can help improve the quality and strength of your hair.

Consider Using Hair Oils

Natural oils for your hair can do wonders for the strength, condition and overall quality of your hair. For example, peppermint oil can help to stimulate your scalp through its cool, tingling sensation, helping to bring circulation to the area. With increased circulation, your hair follicles will be gaining a higher volume of the nutrients and oxygen it needs to enhance growth. Lavender oil can also work to speed up hair growth, as its antimicrobial and antibacterial properties allow for a cleaner, healthier scalp. Experiment with various essential oils and find out what works for you, or speak to a holistic practitioner who works with essential oils for a better idea.

Reduce The Use Of Styling Products

Regular styling of your hair can put excessive strain on your scalp and the follicles, especially when it involves heat. Heat damage can lead to a broken hair shaft, frizzy hair and more, so it’s important to ensure that you either avoid using straighteners or other styling tools completely, or apply gels and protective sprays to your hair to ensure that each and every strand is kept safe.

Brush Your Hair Regularly

While avoiding styling is recommended, brushing your hair is actually something you should be doing regularly. Not only does it prevent tangling, but re-growth is also possible through stimulation of the scalp. By working from the ends of your hair, and then gradually working upward towards the scalp, you can improve scalp circulation through what is essentially a good massage. You can rejuvenate and revitalize your hair follicles just by brushing through your hair 2 to 3 times a day.

While hair loss can be caused by illness or genetic conditions, these natural remedies can help to either improve the health of your hair, or maintain its current condition.
