Hair fall natural cures 

Hair loss may not be a serious problem but it may lead to lower self esteem and frustration in the individuals. Seeing lost hair in the comb or brush could weaken a person mentally. There may be various reasons for hair loss like heredity, hormonal imbalance, insufficient nutrition like lack of B complex vitamins or proteins, long standing illnesses like typhoid, jaundice, anemia, syphilis, improper care of hair leading to formation of dandruff and dirt on the scalp and mental stress and tension.

Various remedies that can be applied to prevent hair loss are:

  • Have a balanced diet containing good amount of protein and B complex vitamins. Have more of sprouts, lentils, cereals, green leafy vegetables, meat and fish. Introduce nuts and fruits into your diet.
  • Regular oiling and washing of hair is essential.

    Massage the scalp with coconut oil which will improve the circulation of the head. Use mild shampoo and apply it only twice a week. Regular conditioning is also useful for enhancing the health of the hair. Natural conditioners like egg or yoghurt are useful for removing the dirt and thus cleaning the hair.
  • Have a combination of equal amounts of alfalfa, lettuce and carrot juice twice daily.
  • For hair growth, apply apple cider vinegar and sage tea.
  • Make a paste of cinnamon powder, honey and olive oil and apply it on the scalp. Leave it for 15 minutes. Wash thoroughly using mild shampoo. Repeat this 3 to 4 times a week.
  • Apply fine ground paste of lime and pepper seeds on the patches on the scalp. This needs to be done twice a day. This paste can improve blood circulation and enhance hair growth.
  • Apply a fine paste of fenugreek seeds on the scalp after oiling the hair. Leave it for one hour and wash it thoroughly. This needs to be done daily for one month.
