Treat Hair Loss and Baldness with Home-Made Remedies
There is something about Hair that people take care of. For one, it is something natural yet adds a sense of beauty to our looks. Others see it as an extension of themselves which also is a reflection of their health. However one views his/her hair, one thing is certain about it: we all look good with a healthy, well-managed hair.
But no matter how much we would like to care for our Hair, Genetics, among other factors, play a role in its decline, especially more common for Men (male pattern baldness) yet also affecting Women (female pattern baldness). However, there are also means we can apply to prevent the condition of Hair Loss from ever worsening. And sometimes the best means can be found right inside our own homes.
As such, the following are the top 20 Home Remedies you can apply as Hair Loss Treatment:

2. Aloe Vera
People who experience Hair Loss have a dry and irritated scalp. Applying Aloe Vera juice or pure aloe gel to the scalp gives it a sense of balanced pH. The application of pure aloe gel involves massaging of it on the scalp, leaving it for a few hours to dry, and then washing with lukewarm water. For best results, the same practice must be applied twice a week. Some aloe Vera Products are available on Amazon. Their user reviews is a must-read as these are from real buyers of the product.

6. Onion or Garlic
While eating both will give a substantial amount of sulphur to the body, applying the essence of the onion directly onto the scalp promotes better hair growth.
If you are to use garlic with the same purpose, you would need to boil it down first with the coconut oil before applying to the scalp topically.

9. Avoiding Junk Foods
Junk foods are nothing but empty calories and very little traces of nutrients. Heavily processed in preparation, Junk foods add toxins in the body when eaten which promotes Hair Loss. Instead of junk foods, eat healthy foods that are less processed and more natural.
10. Gentleness When Hair is Wet
Our hair is more fragile when wet. To prevent the chances of your hair from ever breaking, refrain from rubbing the hair dry with a towel and do not comb when hair is wet.
11. Frequent Scalp Massage
Massage helps maintain a good blood flow to the scalp and is synonymous to providing nourishment to it which promotes a healthy hair. For optimum effect, always massage the scalp with oil.
12. Minimal Pressure
While men are less likely to tie up their hair, women most likely do. Tying up on one’s hair may not be a big deal for most people, but it is not the case for women who are experiencing some balding.
13. Refrain Excessive Heat Styling
Dry scalp is an enemy of a healthy hair as it sets a condition for Hair Loss. If that alone is bad, consider what an excessive heat styling can do to promote its condition.
14. Don’t Use Hot Water When Rinsing Hair
There is something about heat, especially when excessive, that is bad for our hair even when bathing. To prevent your hair from being fizzy and dry, either use cold or warm water when taking a bath.
15. Healthy Diet
This is the direct opposite of eating junk foods. Having a healthy diet provides the needed nutrients into our body that is then spread to the rest of it, including the scalp. Hair needs essential Vitamins/Nutrients like the rest of our body to grow and stay healthy.
Exercise improves our body’s metabolism, which, in turn, promotes better absorption of nutrients in the body. In addition, exercise also helps fights stress by releasing endorphins in the body. Both endorphin and improved nutrient absorption promotes hair growth.
17. Lowered Caffeine Intake
Caffeine affects our body’s natural sources of nutrients, including those needed for the hair. If you are experiencing alopecia, it is wise to refrain from taking too much caffeine as part of your diet. But on the contrary, applying caffeine directly to your scalp has shown promising effects in fighting Hair Loss. You can check out this Caffeine Based Product and try reading what users are saying on its effects.
18. Proper Hydration
The dryness of our skin affects the water levels in our body. When we’re dehydrated, we tend to feel dry from the outside. Our scalp is a part of our skin that is also affected by this. Stay well-hydrated to prevent the drying up of skin. 10 or more glasses of water is recommended for a normal person to stay well-hydrated for a day.
19. Use of Herbal Products
Herbal Products are those that are made using real and natural ingredients unlike commercial products that have artificial chemicals in them. This makes herbal products ideal to use by people who are experiencing balding.
20. Prevent Residue Build-up
Everything that we apply on our hair leave residue on them. Prevent issues of developing dandruff and head lice that may affect the health of your scalp.
Balding may be a condition that has its natural causes, but its remedies, too, are equally natural themselves. The things you use for cooking or the oil you apply to sooth your body may be the answers to your quest of the ultimate Hair Loss or Baldness cure.
For better chances of beating the issue of balding, it is wise that a combination of the listed here be applied instead of sticking to just one method.
