6 Natural Remedies to Battle Hair Loss
by April Maguire
Baldness in men hits early and often. According to recent statistics, more than 60% of men will experience a noticeable amount of hair loss by the time they reach their 35th birthday. By the age of 50, that number skyrockets to a staggering 85%, with most of that hair loss attributable to androgenic alopecia, or male pattern baldness. But despite these depressing statistics, there are some simple, all-natural steps that you can take to help you hold on to your hair.
Stick to a Follicle-Friendly Diet
As with any other part of your body, your hair needs proper nutrition in order to stay healthy and strong. In order to give your hair the nutrients it needs, make sure you eat foods that are rich in both iron and Omega-3 fatty acids, such as fish and dark, leafy greens.
According to scientific studies, rosemary oil can help to stimulate blood flow, providing hair with more nutrients and helping it to grow. To give your hair an all-natural boost with rosemary oil, simply rub some onto your scalp and leave it in overnight.
Switch to an All-Natural Shampoo
A lot of shampoos on the market are infused with harsh, abrasive chemicals that can damage your hair. So if you’ve noticed an increase in hair loss, try switching to an all-natural shampoo that will be easier on your follicles.
Drink Some Green Tea
Believe it or not, simply drinking a glass or two of green tea every day can stop hair loss. One of the causes for hair loss is a chemical called TNF-alpha, and drinking green tea reduces this chemical in the body, helping you to hang on to more of your hair.
Similar to rosemary oil, massaging coconut oil into your scalp can help to fight baldness. Coconut oil has been proven to strengthen roots, causing less of your hair to fall out, and it can even promote the growth of new hair.
Not only can prolonged stress cause problems for your overall health, but it can also seriously damage your hair. So take some time each day to de-stress, either with a relaxing walk, a calming bath or even through meditation.
In the end, there may be no surefire way to hold on to your hair for the rest of your life. But by following these tips, you can help to keep your hair healthy – and on your head where it belongs – for longer.
