Did you know that you lose about 50 to 100 strands of hair every day? That’s perfectly normal, and your hair does grow back eventually, so you may not even notice. But, if you are suffering from more severe hair loss as a result of other causes, you might want to try other measures to make your hair look healthier and fuller.
There are several ways you can incorporate simple, inexpensive ingredients and remedies to treat thinning hair.
Hibiscus is a wonderful healing agent that can help hair loss, promote hair growth and stave off split ends and dandruff. Just heat up hibiscus flowers in a cup of coconut oil. Let the oil cool and then apply to the scalp with your fingers. Wrap your head in a shower cap and leave it on overnight. Rinse with shampoo in the morning and repeat two or three times a week for best results.
Scalp massages help to reduce hair loss by increasing blood flow to the hair follicles and conditioning your scalp. They will help strengthen the roots of your hair so they grow more quickly. A scalp oil massage also helps to promote relaxation and reduce stress, which is a cause of hair loss. Use coconut, almond or olive oil with a few drops of scented essential oil and massage onto your scalp with your fingertips. Rinse off after 30 minutes.
Licorice root helps open your pores, while soothing any itching or irritation to your scalp. Mix ground licorice with saffron and milk and apply it to your scalp with your fingertips. Focus especially on areas where more hair loss is occurring. Leave on overnight under a shower cap and rinse in the morning. Repeat this process one to two times per week.
Fenugreek is packed with hormone antecedents that help promote healthy hair growth. It also contains proteins and nicotinic acid, which helps hair grow naturally. Just soak a cup of fenugreek seeds in water overnight, grind them and then massage them into your scalp with your fingertips. Once they have been applied, wear a shower cap and leave on for 30 minutes. Repeat this process daily for up to a month for the best results.
Raw eggs are filled with proteins and minerals that can help promote healthy hair growth. Mix together two egg whites and two tablespoons of olive oil and apply the paste to your scalp. Leave it until it dries completely and then rinse and shampoo. Repeat this process one to two times weekly.
Onion juice has a lot of sulfur, which improves blood circulation and promotes hair growth. It also has anti-bacterial properties. Just mix a few tablespoons of onion juice with aloe vera gel and apply to the scalp. Leave it on for 30 minutes before rinsing. Repeat this process two to three times a week.
The essential fats and proteins in coconut milk can help your hair grow more abundantly. You can use store-bought coconut milk or grate fresh coconut and boil it in water for a few minutes. Once cool, apply it to the scalp and leave it on for 20 to 30 minutes. Rinse your hair with shampoo and repeat every few days for best results.
