Hey guys! So on this week Tip Tuesday, I will be sharing with you some tips or home remedies to combat hair loss. A few months ago, I noticed that I’ve been shedding quite a lot of hair and I started getting worried. I partly thought that was because my hair was pretty long and that was normal, but after I got my hair cut I felt like it’s been shedding a lot more than usual. I have pretty thin hair to begin with, and I noticed that the hair on the front of my head seemed thinner and I could almost see my scalp. Is that even normal? I’ve read some where that says women loss between 50 to 100 strands per day. Maybe I am just being paranoid, but I don’t think so. I sort of blame this problem to back when I was a flight attendant. All those cans of hairsprays, and super tight buns would lead to hair loss too eventually.
I was doing some research on how to combat hair loss using easy to get or readily available ingredients that you may already have at home, and that are natural. Here are 3 home remedies that you probably want to try out if you are having the same problem as I have. Even if you don’t, this will help with hair growth and healthy looking hair.
- Oil Massage
This is my method of choice. As we all know by now that Coconut oil does not only helps to maintain healthy hair, it can also help to prevent hair loss. Massaging the scalp helps to increase blood flow to the hair follicles. The oil conditions the scalp and gives strength to the roots to allow it to grow properly and quickly.If you don’t like coconut oil, you could also use olive oil, almond oil, lavender or rosemary oil.
Apply a few drops of the oil of your choice to the palm of your hands and massage the oil into your scalp. Massage your scalp for a few minutes and leave it on for 2 to 3 hours or you could leave it in overnight (preferably overnight). Rinse with shampoo and water. You can do this one to two times a week.
- Onion Juice
You’re probably thinking “Eww! Onion Juice?” This is really not my method of choice obviously because who wants their hair smelling like onions? But, onion juice are high in sulfur content that helps to improve blood circulation to the hair follicle and it also has anti-bacterial property to kill the parasites or germs that are causing hair loss.
Grate onions to extract the juice. Massage it into your scalp for a few minutes and wash it off with shampoo and warm water. Repeat this 2 to 3 times a week regularly to get your hair to grow.
- Aloe Vera.
Other than treating sun burns or any type of burns, aloe vera could also help to combat hair loss. It has certain enzymes that helps to promote healthy hair growth by removing dead cells on the scalp so it won’t clog the hair follicle. Aloe vera also has alkaline properties that helps to balance out the hair PH balance by preventing any infections or other impurities. This could also helps to reduce scalp itching, inflammation, add strength and luster to the hair and prevent dandruff.
Using aloe vera gel, apply it to the scalp and let it sit for a few hours and wash it off with lukewarm water after that. Repeat this for 2 to 3 times a week for best result. You can also use aloe vera based shampoo or conditioner, or you can consume a tablespoon of aloe vera juice every morning to get the same results.
This is it my friends. If you are experiencing the same situation as I am, give some of these remedies a try. I definitely prefer oil massage for my scalp because I just love how soft and smooth my hair feels after that. Think of it as a deep conditioning for your hair and a treatment for your scalp. That’s all for today my lovelies. Thanks for reading and have a great day ahead!XOXO ❤
