So, what natural treatments can you use for hair loss?
The first thing you need to know is that hair loss can be due to a lot of things. It is important to first visit the doctor and confirm that your hair loss is not a result of a medical condition. Other cause could be stress, genetic factors, among others.
If you are not experiencing any health conditions, then you can try out some of these tips to prevent further hair loss.
1. Jojoba Oil
In case you have been experiencing dryness of the scalp for some time now, it could be the reason for your hair loss. Jojoba oil is a great natural treatment for hair loss. It moisturizes the scalp and hair follicles, allowing new and strong hair to grow. The best part about it is that it does not leave your scalp feeling all greasy. Using it is quite simple. All you have to do is warm a few drops on your hands and massage directly onto your scalp. Leave the oil for around 10-15 minutes before washing it out with your usual shampoo and conditioner.
2. Onion juice
You are probably wondering how onion juice made the list. However, it’s been proven to be a natural remedy for hair loss. Simply massage some onion juice on your scalp twice each day. Leave it on for 10-20 minutes before washing out with shampoo. You might want to use a scented shampoo though.
3. Coconut oil
Most shampoos, conditioners and other hair products are usually coconut based. This is largely because coconut oil contains moisturizing properties. A major cause of hair loss is dryness of the scalp. Therefore, coconut oil works to restore and retain hair moisture thus preventing hair loss.
4. Egg Mask
Egg hair mask is one method that has been around for ages. Hair is largely made of a protein called Keratin. An egg mask, therefore, is a great remedy for hair loss because of the high levels of protein present. To make an egg mask, you will have to mix one egg with a tablespoon of olive oil. Apply the mask to your damp hair and let is stay for at least ten minutes. Rinse it out and wash with a moisturizing conditioner.
