Hair loss is a common cosmetic issue affecting both men and women. There are a number of factors that can trigger hair loss and the most common include excessive stress, environmental pollution, excessive smoking and last, but not least, aging.
The average number of strands in humans is around 100,000. And while it’s normal to lose up to 100 hair strands a day, anything above this is alarming.
Natural solutions for hair loss
1# Coconut oil
Abundant in minerals, proteins, essential fats, potassium and iron, coconut oil is extremely beneficial for stimulating healthy hair growth.
Warm some coconut oil and apply it on your scalp massaging gently. Leave it to act for 1 hour, then rinse it off.
Alternatively, you can grate some fresh coconut or squeeze its milk and mix this with water. Apply the mix on the areas where hair is receding and leave it overnight. Wash it off the next morning.
Rich in sulfur, onion is highly beneficial for stimulating collagen production.
Slice one onion and squeeze its juice. Apply this on your scalp and leave it for 15 minutes. Wash it off with a mild shampoo and leave it to dry on its own. Repeat the treatment twice a week.
Just like onion, garlic is also abundant in sulfur, which makes it extremely effective in stimulating healthy hair growth.
For this treatment, crush a few cloves, add some coconut oil and boil this for a few minutes. Leave it aside to cool off then apply it on your scalp massaging gently. Leave it on for half an hour before you rinse it off. Do then treatment twice a week.
Eggs are just another beneficial natural remedy that can reverse hair loss. For this mix one egg white with olive oil. Beat the mixture until you get paste. Apply this on your scalp and leave it on for about 20 minutes. Wash it off using lukewarm water and mild shampoo.
