If you are a woman who’s losing her hair, you know how embarrassing this can be. You can only hide under a hat for so long, and then you’re faced with seeking a remedy. Luckily, there are some great remedies you can use in the privacy of your own home.
The first place you should start is with your diet. Make sure you are getting enough proteins and natural Vitamin A through green leafy vegetables and carrots, among other foods. Once you have your healthy diet in place, you’re ready to move on to some actual hair treatments.
One of my favorite home remedies is scalp massages. Whether you use a scalp massage oil in the shower or a special electric massager, these feel so good! The reasoning behind scalp massages is that it stimulates your scalp, promoting healthy hair growth. It can also reduce any buildups that might be blocking the hair follicles.
There are several homemade scalp massage treatments available. One popular option is to mix a honey and egg yolk mixture, which is then rinsed with apple cider vinegar. Aromotherapists combine six drops each of lavendar and bay essential oils into four ounces of almond oil. Massage this into the scalp, let it sit for 20 minutes, then rinse thoroughly.
Rosemary and sage have been shown to be effective herbs for external use. Brew these herbs in hot water, strain, cool, then use to rinse hair daily. You can also add nettle root extract, which is rich in Vitamin C, to this herbal hair tea.
Aloe vera has long been used to promote healthy hair and prevent hair loss. You can mix pure aloe vera gel, coconut milk, and a small amount of wheat germ oil to make a natural shampoo.
Finally, many people swear by cleansing and detoxification regimens, with the understanding that toxins can cause scalp conditions, as well as many unrelated physical problems.
