According to the American Hair Loss Association, two thirds of men over the age of 35 will experience some degree of hair loss. Nowadays, there are numerous solutions to help with hair loss problems. Before diving in and learning more about LaserCap’s LLLT device for hair loss, have you ever tried some of these home remedies to naturally stimulate hair growth?
For centuries, coconut oil has been used to stimulate hair growth. Among the various types of oil, coconut oil is the only kind found to reduce protein loss for both undamaged and damaged hair when used pre-wash and post-wash.
One method to make your hair thicker, healthier, and fuller is to use an egg yolk mask. Egg yolks contain lecithin and protein, which are able to strengthen and nourish your hair strands. To make an egg yolk mask, mix two yolks with two tablespoons of olive oil, and then add about half a cup of water to dilute the concoction. For optimal results, leave the mask in for up to 30 minutes.
Rosemary oil is an essential oil that promotes hair growth and reduces hair loss by dilating the blood vessels, which stimulates your hair follicles. Studies have shown that using rosemary oil to combat hair loss produces the same effect as using minoxidil. Minoxidil is a topical medication that can be applied on the scalp to treat hair loss.
Another simple way to enhance hair growth is to give yourself a scalp massage. Scalp massages have been proven to stimulate hair growth by increasing blood flow to the scalp, bolstering the root’s strengths, and increasing nutrient transportation to your hair follicles. To double its benefits, massage with a nutrient-rich oil.
Castor oil is packed with omega-6 fatty acids, vitamin E, proteins, and other beneficial nutrients that can penetrate the hair to retain moisture. This intense moisturizer can enhance dry or damaged hair, and may soothe your scalp’s skin, reducing dandruff and flaking.
The best way to take advantage of castor oil’s vast benefits is to give yourself a hot oil treatment. Massage castor oil into your scalp and distribute it all the way towards the end of your strands. Cover your hair with a shower cap and then blow dry for fifteen minutes. When you have finished, shampoo and conditioner as usual.
Onion juice is one of the oldest home remedies to boost hair growth, Onions contain sulphur, which increases collagen production in the tissues. The increased production of collagen significantly helps hair regrowth and can treat different forms of alopecia.
Rich in fatty acids, vitamins, essential amino acids and minerals like zinc and copper, aloe vera has been used to treat hair loss for years. By soothing the scalp and conditioning the hair, aloe vera can successfully promote hair growth and soothe dandruff.
