Various Natural Cures For Balding
Today the market is full of hair loss solutions that claim to provide amazing results for curing baldness by preventing hair loss, but usually these expensive products are full of chemicals and can damage your health over time. There are, however, many natural and inexpensive remedies available that can slow down thinning of the hair and encourage hair growth by stimulating and nourishing the hair follicles. Natural treatments are aimed to strike at the root cause of the hair fall like improving thyroid functions and hormonal imbalance and promoting good circulation.
Rubbing the scalp vigorously using your fingers, immediately after washing your hair with cold water is an effective way to encourage new hair growth and prevent hair loss. Rub your scalp daily with your fingertips until it starts tingling with heat. Vigorous rubbing will activate the sebaceous gland, promoting increased circulation of blood, which in turn will encourage hair growth.
Hot Oil Treatment
Give your scalp a gentle hot oil massage using any natural oil like coconut, olive, almond or canola. Heat the oil taking care that it is warm but not too hot. After massaging the scalp, wear a shower cap or towel on your head and leave the hair as it is for at least half an hour.
Then shampoo your hair using a mild and natural shampoo. Head massage with warm oil will promote good circulation, activates the sebaceous glands in the hair follicles and thus, encourages hair growth.
Onion And Honey
Onion contains sulfur which is great natural cure for treating patchy baldness. Either mix honey with onion juice or simply rub an onion on the affected part every day to encourage hair growth. You can also rub onion juice on the bald patches followed by massage of honey. Massaging the scalp with ginger or garlic juice may also help to cure baldness.
Brew green tea in a cup of boiling water. Apply it while it is still warm thoroughly on the scalp and leave for an hour. Regular use of green tea, which contains (flavonoids) antioxidant properties, will encourage hair growth.
Consistent use of certain essential oils like rosemary, lavender, cedarwood, jojoba and grapeseed oil can stimulate hair follicle and restrict hair fall by increasing circulation to the scalp. Mix equal quantities of thyme, rosemary, cedar wood, lavender, grape seed and jojoba oil in a bowl. Massage the oil everyday in your scalp to get the desired result. Wrap your head using a warm towel after you finish massaging. Combination of these oils penetrates into the hair follicles and stimulates hair re-growth without causing any side effects.
Amla Oil (Indian Gooseberry)
Boil dry pieces of amla in coconut oil. Amla is rich in vitamin C and is considered highly beneficial for hair growth. Rinsing the hair with fresh amla and lime juice is equally beneficial for hair growth.
A person losing hair rapidly must concentrate on his/her diet. Lack of nutrients in your diet could be one of the major causes of rapid hair loss. Eat a well-balanced diet containing liberal quantities of grains, seeds, nuts, fruits and vegetables and high protein foods like fish, meat and dairy products that can provide essential nutrients.
