Are you facing the same issue as faced by me previously; the most irritating and scary Hair fall? Hair strands falling out on your comb, tee shirt and even towel? Don’t worry, here today I will share with you a list of remedies that I have tried and especially the things that worked for me to stop hair fall.
Hair fall can be due to several reasons. Most common reasons are nutritional deficiency and genetic issues. It is common in both men and women and is a cause of concern for both. But, little did I know that it could well be cured at home until I tried the following remedies and found relief with the same.
1) Coconut oil/Milk massage
Just take some freshly grated coconut and squeeze some milk from it or heat some virgin coconut oil. Now take either of it and massage a generous amount on your scalp and roots. Let it stay for 20-30 minutes and rinse it off using a mild shampoo for best results.
During this process the Vitamin E, from coconut enriches the moisture in your hair and its anti-microbial properties help in keeping your hair free from any infections too. This one is my personal favourite as it is the easiest to follow.
2) Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is useful not only for your skin but is extremely beneficial for your hair too. Add various products like shikakai, neem, liquorice, lemon Juice, cinnamon and even honey to make a hair pack. Apply it using a brush on your hair and scalp. Let it sit for about 20 minutes and rinse it off without using a shampoo. If possible use Luke warm water. This will help your hair by strengthening its roots and also improving their growth and shine.
3) Juice from Onion
Take any onion and grate it. Then squeeze the grated onion to get some juice. This juice should be applied on your scalp till the tips of your hair. Leave it in your hair for half an hour and finally wash it off using a mild shampoo.
Note: Since some people do not like the onion odour thus, honey and rose water can be added to the juice to avoid the odour and accentuate the results.
4) Indian Gooseberry (Amla)
Indian Gooseberries can be paired with either aloe vera, coconut oil or lime juice to make a paste perfect for adding strength to your hair and also improving its growth. This so happens as Amla is rich in Vitamin C. Just apply any of the above mixture respectively and wash it off after 20-30 minutes using Luke warm water.
5) Methi or fenugreek
Not the leafy fenugreek but its seeds is what we are referring to here. Take some fenugreek seeds and add them to yogurt and add an egg to it. Now apply this paste on your hair length and scalp. Now let it sit for a good half an hour and finally you can rinse your hair using water. Do not shampoo or use any other product in your hair. It will strengthen your hair and prevent hair fall.
6) Egg Whites
Egg whites are extremely rich in protein. Thus, use them as it is on your hair or mix them with other healthy ingredients like olive oil or honey to provide that extra boost of nutrition to your beautiful locks to gain strength and add to your beauty. Let the egg white stay in your hair for about 15 minutes and then wash using a good smelling mild shampoo. For better results this remedy can be applied twice a week.
7) Henna or Mehendi
It is a widely accepted fact that henna is often used to cover greys but little did I know; until I tried it by myself that henna can help in controlling hair fall and maintaining luscious locks for a long time. Just make a henna paste with water and apply it on your scalp and your hair. Let it stay put for 30-40 minutes. Then wash off using a good mild quality shampoo.
8) Green Tea
This is again one of my favourites. Just take 2-3 tea bags of green tea add them to boiling water. Let them soak in water till it comes to room temperature. Now use the water flavoured with these tea bags to wash your hair and *tadaa* shine, healthy and strong hair are ready to be flaunted.
These eight home remedies have been tested personally and believe you in me they actually work wonders. Just try them one at a time and get to see the results of each of the methods in the first go itself. Hope you get similar results and if you know of any methods I missed, kindly suggest in the comments below and I will definitely try and let you know how it went by.
