No one wants to deal with hair loss, but it is something that is common in millions of people all over the world, both men and women. There are several reasons why one has hair falling out, from poor nutrition to stress to certain illnesses such as chronic cold, flu, and anemia. Even not washing your hair enough can lead to hair loss. These can all cause the roots to weaken, and eventually the hair will begin to fall out. Thankfully, there are things you can do to prevent this from happening in the first place, or stop/slow the process if it has already begun.
One of the most effect hair loss remedies is a scalp massage. The best way to do this is to wash your hair with cool water, and then rub your scalp with your fingertips. Keep rubbing until you feel a tingling/hot sensation. This is going to put the sebaceous glands to work and encourage more blood flow to the area so hair is healthy and grows.
Coconut oil is known to have many health benefits, and one of those benefits is the prevention of hair loss. Mix refined coconut oil with lime juice and lime water, and apply it to your hair. Not only will this help to prevent hair loss, it will also help your hair to grow longer and stronger. It will also help to condition your scalp and prevent dandruff.
As previously mentioned, one of the main causes of hair loss is poor nutrition, particularly a deficiency in protein and certain vitamins. Juicing may be the answer to your problem. You can make a juice that combines lettuce and spinach, or one with alfalfa, carrots, and lettuce that will help encourage hair growth. It is important to drink at least a liter a day of either juice for the best results. Adding a protein supplement to the juices will increase the potency of this drink, and it will be good for your overall health as well as to encourage hair growth.
Before trying any home treatment to avoid your hair falling out, it is best to discuss the problem with your family doctor. He or she may have other recommendations, especially if you are already on any type of special diet for health reasons. Your doctor will discuss the various options with you, and help you choose the best course of treatment to stop your hair from falling out and encouraging new hair growth.
