Nowadays hair loss is a common problem in our life. Everyone loses some hair every day. Losing up to 100 hairs a day is normal. Although hair loss is fairly common, it can be a tough thing to live with as it changes how we look. But there are some natural ways of hair fall control.
Some natural ways of hair fall solution are: Hot oil massage, Onion juice, Beetroot juice, Green tea, Gooseberry (Amla), Neem Leaves, Aloe Vera, Egg white and curd paste etc.
Processes of hair fall control:
Hot Oil Massage:
Heat some oil (preferably coconut oil or almond oil) and slowly massage on the scalp using fingertips to increase the blood flow to the hair follicles. It makes roots strong and conditions our scalp.
Onion juice helps to treat hair loss and enhance the circulation of blood to the hair follicles. The anti-bacterial properties in onion juice help to kill the germs that cause scalp infection which may lead to hair loss.
Green tea revitalizes hair follicles and stimulates hair production and enhances metabolism which ultimately leads to increased hair growth rate.
Indian Gooseberry (Amla):
Deficiency of Vitamin C is one of the main reasons for hair fall and it’s a rich source of it. Amla is rich in antioxidants and antibacterial properties that prevent dandruff and scalp inflammation. Amla helps to keep the scalp clean and provides the required nutrition to the hair roots to make them stronger and shinier.
Neem also works well for hair fall control. It helps the hair follicles to become stronger and encourages hair growth. It also reduces dandruff and itching.
It is directly promoted as hair fall solution. Applying Aloe Vera juice or gel on our scalp with one teaspoon of Aloe Vera half an hour before breakfast can induce healthy hair growth. It removes the dead cells from the scalp that can clog the roots of the hair.
