Have you noticed more hair in your brush than normal? Or maybe you now have bald spots on your head that you never noticed before? Whatever the case may be, hair loss is very emotional for a lot of people. If you believe you’re experiencing hair loss, here are a few natural treatments that can promote hair growth and combat future hair loss:
The right nutrition plays a huge factor in hair health, so it’s important to eat right. Many people have horrible diets and aren’t getting the right nutrients and minerals they need, which can cause their hair to fall out. By eating a diet that’s balanced, you can help improve the health of your hair. Protein is important and will promote hair growth, so it’s recommended that you eat two to three 3-ounce servings of protein a day and combine that with six to 10 servings of vegetables and two to four fruits for a well balanced diet.
Stress can really damage your hair and increase hair loss. But before you start worrying about how stress is affecting your hair, ask your doctor if it should be a concern.
For women, this is extremely important because rough hair styles or techniques can damage your hair even more and cause hair loss even faster. Whenever you can, allow it to air-dry and avoid styles that create unnecessary tension on your hair like buns, ponytails, braids or cornrows. Avoid twisting or pulling your hair if possible. This will help with delicate hair so that hair loss is minimal.
You can easily minimize hair loss with simple home remedies by creating natural masks for your hair. Onion juice is one, as well as garlic and coconut oil. You’re supposed to leave the mask on your hair anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes and then rinse out, doing it twice a week to see results. An egg mask is also a highly popular natural remedy, taking the white of an egg and mixing it with a teaspoon of olive oil.
