Losing your hair can affect your mental health dramatically. We often talk about how to prevent male-pattern baldness, but female hair loss is rarely discussed.
Before rushing to buy expensive hair care products, it’s important to try some of these natural remedies!
1. Egg Mask
Eggs are a great source of Sulphur, phosphorus, selenium, iodine, zinc and protein, which together help promote hair growth. Protein is always the key to reducing hair loss and encouraging growth!
An egg mask is a brilliant solution to helping prevent further hair loss and promoting new hair growth. Here’s how to prepare one:
- Separate one egg white in a bowl and add a teaspoon each of olive oil and honey.
- Beat to make a paste and apply it from root to tips.
- After 20 minutes, rinse with a mild shampoo.
If you find your hair slightly smelly, give it a second wash with a mild but scented shampoo.
2. Liquorice Root
Liquorice root is a herb that prevents hair loss and further damage to the hair. It helps soothe the scalp and eliminate any dandruff or dry flakes.
To use this great herb to prevent hair loss, create a paste by adding a tablespoon of ground liquorice root and a quarter teaspoon of saffron to one cup of milk. Then, apply this paste to your scalp and hair length and leave it on overnight.
The following day, wash your hair. You’ll be amazed at how good your hair feels, and it will prevent further hair loss. Try to repeat this process once a week until your problem has subsided.
3. Coconut Milk
Coconut milk is yet another home remedy that promotes hair growth. With hair loss, it’s always important to focus on regaining hair and preventing loss.
Coconut milk’s protein and essential fats promote hair growth and prevent further hair loss.
Plus, it smells fantastic, and your hair will feel so soft!
To prepare the best coconut milk for hair loss, follow this recipe:
- Grate a medium-sized coconut and simmer it in a pan for five minutes.
- Strain and cool.
- Then add one tablespoon of each crushed black pepper and fenugreek seeds to the milk.
- Apply on your scalp and hair.
- After 20 minutes, rinse with shampoo.
4. Green Tea
Not only is this tea excellent and healthy to drink, but it also helps to boost hair growth and prevent hair loss. No, we don’t mean drinking it!
Soak 2-3 tea bags in one-two cups of hot water, depending on the length of your hair. When it’s cool enough, pour this over your scalp and hair while gently massaging your head. Rinse with cool water after an hour.
5. Beetroot Juice
Beetroot is an excellent source of vitamins C and B6, folate, manganese, betaine and potassium. Each of these vitamins is essential for healthy hair growth.
To make the beetroot juice, boil 7-8 beetroot leaves and then grind these with 5-6 henna leaves. This will form a paste, apply the paste to your scalp and leave it for up to 20 minutes before rinsing your hair with warm water.
6. Greek Yoghurt & Honey
No, this is not a tasty dessert! Mix 2 tablespoons of yoghurt with 1 tablespoon of honey and lemon in a bowl. Apply this paste to the scalp and roots. If you struggle, using a dye brush can help to spread it evenly. Leave this paste on your head for around 30 minutes before rinsing with cold water.
Repeat this process once a week until your problem has gone!
7. Aloe Vera
Everyone knows that aloe vera has incredible health benefits! Not least is the fact that it helps reduce hair loss and boost your growth.
Aloe vera helps with other scalp issues, such as itching and flaking!
How to use it:
- Take the stalk of Aloe Vera and extract the pulp.
- Apply it to your hair and scalp and leave it for about 45 minutes.
- Rinse with normal water. You can do this three to four times a week to see better results.
Well, no matter what home remedy you feel like trying, it’s important to ensure you know why your hair is lost.
If you aren’t sure hair loss is sudden or comes with other symptoms, make sure you book a proper check at a specialised clinic.
