It is very hard to resist the temptation of using synthetic hair care products when you discover that you are losing your hair at a premature age. The reason why consumers are so inclined towards hair loss products that are heavily marketed in mass media platforms is because they believe that such products provide a readymade solution to the hair loss problem. The reality of the situation is that most of these products are quite inefficacious and have no real benefit to offer to a person who is losing his hair.
This does not give us the license to paint all the hair loss products with the same brush. Some of them are actually quite good at helping you control your hair fall. That being said, not many people are able to afford the best hair loss products that are being sold in the market. Premium products have a premium price.
If these products are beyond your affordability range, then you should seriously consider coming up with some effective homemade hair loss remedies. These remedies can be made at a fraction of the cost of the hair loss products. Sure, you have to invest a certain amount of time to ensure that the homemade remedies turn out to be effective. However, losing a few hours a week to save your hair seems like a worthwhile deal. Homemade hair loss remedies are based on the use of nature’s finest ingredients. If you are not quite sure of what some of these ingredients are, then here’s a list to help you out:
Beetroot is an ingredient that will you not read much about in hair loss help forums and blogs. However, it is just as good as any of the other natural products that are highly talked about in those blogs and forums. You do not need to buy beetroot in bulk to make this natural hair loss remedy work. In fact, all you need to do is pick up some fresh beetroot leaves and fetch a tablespoon of henna (a flowering plant that is heavily used in the subcontinent).
Once you have gathered these two ingredients, you can start boiling the beetroot leaves in water. Keep boiling till the liquid has been reduced to half of its initial volume. The next step is to grind the boiled and softened leaves and mix it up with a bit of the henna. After a few minutes of heavy grinding and mixing, you should have a fine paste at hand. Apply this paste directly to your scalp and keep it on there for a minimum of 20 minutes before washing it off with clean water.
This paste should be applied three times a week. The reason why you should be using the beetroot leaves in this homemade hair loss remedy is because beetroot is enriched with potassium, protein, Vitamin B and Vitamin C. All of these are incredibly helpful for maintaining healthy hair.
2) Chinese Hibiscus
This is another unique ingredient that is not frequently mentioned in hair loss blogs, articles and forums. To create a remedy out of it, you need 10 Chinese hibiscus flowers and a couple of cups of virgin coconut oil.
The Chinese hibiscus flowers should be directly combined with the virgin coconut oil and heated at medium temperature. Once the flowers become charred, you should take the mixture off the heat and extract the coconut oil that has now been infused with the goodness of the hibiscus flowers. Apply the oil directly onto your hair.
You are recommended to use the oil at night before going to bed. You can wash the oil off in the morning during your first shower of the day. People who have benefited from this natural hair loss homemade remedy believe that it should be applied at least three to four times a week for best results.
The reason why we are using Chinese hibiscus is because it contains a good amount of Vitamin C, riboflavin and phosphorous. These nutrients are extremely useful for enhancing the smoothness and improving the strength of the hair.
Very few people could have imagined that potatoes can actually make a positive difference in the life of an individual who is struggling with hair loss issues. The homemade potato hair loss remedy requires you to collect a single potato, a teaspoon of water and another teaspoon of honey.
The potato must be washed thoroughly and its skin must be peeled. Slice the potatoes up and chuck it into the blender to create a fine, smooth puree. Use a muslin cloth to strain the puree and extract the potato juice. Combine the juice with honey and water. Apply the mixture onto your scalp and wash it off with shampoo after 30 minutes.
Applying this remedy once a week should be good enough. This remedy works because potatoes are rich in Vitamin C, potassium and iron, all of which contribute to healthy hair growth.
