Loss of hair can be a major reason for loss of self confidence. No or less hair makes people very conscious about their looks.
And nowadays, hair fall or appearance of bald patches is not just limited to hereditary factors, increasing stress levels and improper nutrition are also contributing to the same. So, if you are facing the same problem and are looking for real and natural solutions for hair fall and bald patches, we get you effective home remedies that will help fight these problems.
1. Aloe vera gel
Aloe vera is not just a miracle product for your skin, but has amazing properties that boost hair growth too. All you need to do is slit open an Aloe Vera leaf into two and scrape out the gel from it. Apply this gel on your scalp and leave it on for 20 minutes. Thereafter, wash your hair with normal water and say hello to denser looking, softer and smoother hair. Follow this twice a week.
2. Fenugreek seeds with coconut oil
Heat half a cup of coconut oil and add a teaspoon of fenugreek seeds to it. Let this oil boil for a few minutes. After it cools down, apply the oil on your scalp with tender hands and in circular motions. Let it absorb in the scalp thoroughly for about an hour, after which you can wash it off using a mild shampoo. Repeat this twice a week for maximum results.
3. Onion juice/paste
Out of all the natural ingredients for fighting hair loss, onion is supposed to be the best one. Just blend a few peeled onions in a blender, strain the paste to take out a thin and clear juice. Now apply this juice directly on your scalp using a cotton ball. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes and rinse it with water (if you can bear the smell and plan to stay indoors, else use a mild shampoo).
4. Mustard oil with henna
Just take around 250 ml of mustard oil and put it in a pan to heat. Add 10-15 leaves of henna to this and let the mixture boil. After cooling it, apply this oil to your scalp and let it rest there for 25 minutes. Wash your hair thoroughly after this and repeat the therapy only once every week.
5. Oil therapy
The easiest way to enhance hair growth is by increasing the blood flow and circulation in the scalp, and what better way to do that than a relaxing oil massage? Make it a part of your routine to include oil massages. At least twice a week, massage your scalp with olive/coconut oil and leave it on for an hour. Wash it off thereafter.
6. Olive oil with cumin seeds and honey
Take one forth cup of olive oil and add a teaspoon of cumin seeds to it. Let this mix rest for about 4-5 hours. Now, strain the oil and add some honey to it. Apply this to your scalp and massage lightly. Leave it on for at least 30 minutes after which, wash your hair with normal water and a mild shampoo. Follow this routine once every week and you will see great results in just a few months.
7. Honey with egg yolk
Not only will an egg yolk and honey combination make your hair denser, but it will also add a luscious shine and softness. All you need to do is to mix the yolk of an egg with honey to form a paste. You can use more eggs depending upon the length of your hair. Leave it on for 30 minutes and wash thoroughly with a fragrant shampoo as the smell of the yolk takes some time to go. But the end results are totally worth it!
8. Peppercorns and lemon seeds
Yes, you read that right, lemon seeds! Just crush 7-8 peppercorns with the same amount of lemon seeds (that we usually throw away). Add a few drops of lemon juice to this mix and apply it all over your scalp. Let this mask be on for about 30-40 minutes before washing it off. But be careful while its application and wash, because both peppercorns and lemon can be major irritants if they enter your eye.
9. Camphor oil
Camphor happens to be a great relaxant, anti-inflammatory, antifungal and antiseptic ingredient. So in any way possible, it will only do good to your scalp and hair. Just crush a little camphor into coconut oil and massage it on your scalp. Leave it on for an hour after which you can wash it off with a shampoo. This will not only promote hair growth, but will also help you get rid of dandruff and make your hair smoother and softer.
