Hair loss over time, due to genetic traits and various other factors, is normal. To ensure it stays thick and healthy-looking, you need to protect your hair and scalp against factors that could cause it to fall out and become thin. There are some easy, natural to reduce hair loss.
One of the easiest ways to prevent excessive hair loss is a healthy diet. Make sure your diet has all the vitamins and nutrients your body needs to function properly. Fresh fruit and vegetables will help increase your vitamin intake. Since hair is made up mostly of protein, you should include in your diet foods, rich in protein like fish, eggs, red meats, dairy and beans. Foods, high in vitamin B, like eggs, poultry and all types of meat, will keep your hair roots strong and healthy, thus preventing hair loss. Foods, high in iron, like whole grains, dark green leafy vegetables, eggs and raisins, will feed your hair from the inside out, making it strong and thick. Foods, rich in vitamin E, like avocados, nuts and olive oils, will aid your body with good blood circulation, which includes the blood near the scalp. Fatty acids keep your hair hydrated. Dry hair is brittle and falls out easily. Foods, rich in fatty acids are nuts, especially walnuts, fish and soy.
If you suffer hair loss, you should also massage your scalp regularly. This will encourage blood circulation and the delivery of essential nutrients to the scalp and the hair follicles. If you want to provide intensive moisturization to your scalp, while increasing the blood circulation, you can use natural oils, such as gingko biloba, olive oil and jojoba oil. Giving yourself a scalp massage is easy and you can do it anywhere – sitting at your desk in the office, sitting in a traffic jam, watching TV or just relaxing somewhere pleasant. In addition to reducing hair loss, the scalp massage will also relieve tension and stimulate mental function.
If your hair loss is due to scalp infection or a scalp disease, it might be a good idea to add essential oils to your shampoo or use them for a scalp massage. If hair loss is caused by infections, this is the one of the best and easiest ways to treat your scalp, without the use of potentially harmful chemicals. Tea tree oil and lavender oil are ideal for the scalp, because of their antimicrobial qualities. Rosemary oil has the ability to stimulate the hair follicles, which will help you grow longer and stronger hair. Jojoba oil can loosen and remove crusted build up on the scalp, that blocks the follicles and inhibits hair growth. Coconut oil will nourish your hair and add a beautiful shine. It will also ensure that the hair is free of lice, lice eggs and dandruff. You can mix some of these oils together, massage your scalp, wrap a warm towel around your head to increase absorption and wash after an hour. This will promote hair re-growth.
There are so many natural remedies for hair loss, that you may wonder where to start. These tips we provided are a good start to get a thicker and healthier hair. You will need to use all of them combined. Good nutrition is essential not only to your hair, but to the whole body, to function properly. Use oils to massage your scalp. They will increase blood circulation and provide moisture and nutrients to your hair. You can even add them to your shampoo. If the problem persists, you will need to seek the professional help of a doctor.
