5 Natural Ways to Reduce Hair Loss
5 Natural Ways to Reduce Hair Loss: Hair loss is a very common condition which is medically termed as alopecia or baldness. Loss of hair can occur from the scalp or elsewhere on the body. It can be the result of heredity, hormonal changes, medical conditions or medications. Anyone – men, women and children can experience hair loss.
Some types of hair loss are temporary, and others are permanent. Most people normally shed 50 to 100 hairs a day, that small loss isn’t noticeable because new hair is growing in at the same time. It is only a cause of concern when you lose more than that and growth of new hair is very slow or completely stopped.
Here are 5 natural methods which can reduce hair loss:
Onion juice has been used to stimulate hair growth from long ago. Aromatic foods like onions contain many natural compounds that help to cleanse the scalp and it can also increase circulation, promotes collagen and keratin production,nourish and stimulate the hair follicles.
For hair loss, rub a sliced raw onion on the roots of your hair before going to sleep. Let it dry for an hour. Leave it overnight. Just make sure to shampoo and condition after to get rid of the stink.
The neem plant is full of medicinal properties. Both fresh and dried leaves of the tree have amazing anti-microbial, anti-fungal, antiviral, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory properties. Being rich in antioxidant vitamin C, it also works as a natural blood purifier that cleanses the body from inside and makes the scalp as well as hair healthy.
Grind the leaves into a fine paste and apply it from the root of your hair to the tip, then wrap it. Let it sit for 30 minutes or as long as you like, then rinse Repeat the process twice in a week and notice the change.
Coconut oil is rich in carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals which are good for the human body. Coconut oil is anti-microbial and anti-fungal. It has no bad smell. Coconut oil can significantly reduce protein damage. Coconut oil can penetrate the hair shaft and protect it from excess heat and pollution. Gently massage coconut oil to damp hair for at least three minutes then cover your oiled hair with a shower cap. You can leave it for thirty minutes or overnight and wash it out with a gentle sulfate-free shampoo.
Applying a mixture of lime water and coconut oil can also provide relief from hair loss, as does the mixture of coconut oil and gooseberries. Boil the gooseberries in coconut oil and then apply it on the hair.
Hot oil scalp massage
Massaging your head from time to time is surely an effective way to stimulate hair growth. Because of the motion and pressure of your fingers, blood flow to your scalp is increased. Heat the oil up so it is warm, but not too hot. The ideal temperature is not exceeding 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit). Then, massage the oil into your scalp.
Massage your scalp daily by hand for a couple of minutes. To enhance the massage, you can also add an egg with the oil. Massage this mixture into the scalp and leave for a night.
Exercise is another important key to live healthy. Exercise keeps the heart pumping which is important for the body’s blood circulation. Exercising increases blood flow to the scalp. The increased blood flow brings with it more nutrients and more oxygen, and thereby promoting healthy hair growth.
When we exercise the sweat unclogs the hair follicles – that gets clogged by dead skin and grease – giving enough space for the new hair to grow.
So if you desire thick beautiful hair go for a walk, dance, cycle, play, run, do yoga, cardio or whatever you enjoy.
