By being consistent and patient you’ll be amazed at how you can help stop hair loss and regrow your hair naturally. These are our favorite remedies, see which one is a good fit for your lifestyle:
Believe it or not, the food you eat can impact your hair growth OR hair loss. If life has you so busy that you’re eating fast food or skipping meals then your hair is going to be affected. Eating a healthy balanced diet that is especially rich in proteins and omega-3’s will encourage new hair growth. Enjoy foods like spinach, meat, eggs, fish and avocado and watch your hair regrow naturally.
Vitamins and Supplements
Vitamin supplements are easy to add to your daily routine and can help boost hair regrowth. Look for a supplement specifically for your hair to make sure you are getting the power packed combo of vitamins and nutrients that will boost hair growth.
Helping your hair regrow can be a relaxing time for self-care when you apply oils to your scalp that promote hair growth. Look for pure essential oils of rosemary or peppermint and combine them with coconut oil before applying them to your scalp. Allow the oils to sit on your scalp for a few hours before washing. Not sure how to fit a pampering hair oil session into your schedule? Apply the oils before bed and leave them on overnight and wash out in the morning.
Peppermint oil has been linked with inducing anagen which is the hair growth phase, so if you’re looking to regrow hair in 3 weeks or less then start with peppermint. Peppermint oil is safe to use and promotes fast hair growth with the signs of new growth in as little as two weeks.
Increase Circulation to Your Scalp
Treat yourself to a scalp massage each night before bed. Massaging your scalp with your fingertips for at least 15 minutes will increase blood flow to your scalp. Studies show that increasing circulation helps promote significant hair growth and healthy hair follicles.
Another great way to increase circulation is to regularly exercise. Exercise that increases your heart rate increases your blood flow which means more nutrients and oxygen can reach your scalp.
It may sound crazy but it’s true. Onion juice has long been used as a natural hair regrowth treatment. You can blend onions into a pulp in a blender, then strain using cheesecloth to get onion juice. If you have a juicer you can also juice the onions.
Onion juice has high amounts of sulfur which is great for increasing blood circulation. The sulfur also works on your scalp to reduce inflammation or scalp infections that may be behind your hair loss.
Apply the onion juice a few hours before you shower and let it sit on your scalp before washing out. Pretty soon you’ll see the hair-growing benefits from the nutrient rich onion juice.
Tips for Being Gentle on Your Hair
Encouraging new hair growth is important but it’s also important to avoid some of the habits and routines that can lead to hair loss in the first place.
Too much heat on your hair leads to breakage and hair loss. If you regularly use heat tools on your hair then it could be the reason you’re dealing with thinning strands. Purchase a high quality heat protection hair product and always use it before applying heat to your hair.
Hair that is regularly pulled back into tight hairstyles will lead to hair loss. Be gentle on your hair and give it a break from tight ponytails and cornrows.
Wet Hair Care
Wet hair does not want to be brushed or combed. While regularly washing your hair and keeping your scalp clean with unclogged pores is great for hair growth, brushing your hair while wet is not. Hair is fragile when it’s wet so combing it will lead to breakage and more hair loss.
Ditch Harsh Chemicals
Harsh shampoos and hair products with hair-beware chemicals should be avoided. It’s worth your money to spend a little extra on a quality shampoo that will be gentle on your hair and promote hair growth.
Don’t let stress get the best of you or your hair. Major life stressors can lead to an increase of hair loss, so learning to manage stress so it doesn’t take such a huge physical toll on your body will help manage hair loss as well.
