Home Remedies for Hair Fall and Scalp Problems:

These are topical and non-topical home remedies that have been proven to combat hair fall since the days of old!!

1. Your hair must be kept clean, so washing it with a mild herbal shampoo made of shikakai and amla would be great. This would not only shampoo your hair but also keep it naturally conditioned; herbal shampoos of the same mix are available at brick-and-mortar stores and across reputed online stores. However, pick one according to your hair type for better results.

2. Lukewarm oil mixed with garlic cloves and massaged into the scalp twice a week does wonders for the hair. One can use any essential oil, but ensure castor oil and mustard oil in equal quantities of a tablespoon each are used for better consistency. Turban wraps the head and lets the warmth soak in the oils, nourishing the scalp. Do this twice a week; your hair will stop falling, no dandruff to cry about, and the shine will be restored.

3. We ask you to resist the temptation of combing your hair, even with a wide-toothed brush or comb. Wet hair is weak, and that’s why towel wrap or turban wraps are advised, so natural drying happens. Please don’t use a hair dryer too much for hair drying; it burns the hair and makes it fall.

4. Women, if you use hair accessories that are too tight, they would pull your hair and make the strands fall. Hence, no matter how cute the bunny clips or bobby pins look, ensure you don’t use or buy hair slips and other hair accessories which would be tight.

5. When men and women walk out in the sun, they should have their heads covered. This would keep the hair clean and safe from external elements, such as pollution, dust and the sun’s UV rays. Yes, the sun’s UV rays kill the hair follicles and don’t allow the scalp to breathe well.

6. Use palmetto to treat hair fall; this is what the Native American tribes have been using since ancient days, to our knowledge. Palmetto is known to stop DHT from being produced. DHT is the reason prostrates enlarge, and it also causes hair loss.

7. Vitamins are essential since they nourish the body, keep the skin shining and make the hair bouncy. Vitamin A helps with sebum production; it is an antioxidant, too. Vitamin E helps with blood circulation, which is necessary for scalp nourishment, leading to healthier hair follicles. Vitamin B helps with melanin production, so your hair boasts deep dark colours.

9. Henna helps restore moisture and seal cuticles, too. The herb is known to make the hair roots strong.

10. We all love green tea for its varied benefits, and apart from the antioxidants it has for anti-ageing, it also helps stop hair fall. A teaspoon of wet green tea leaves massaged into the scalp and left for ten minutes is enough. Do this twice a week for natural shine and more hair growth.

a. Try to breathe and do yoga every day for thirty minutes at least. This would bring down stress levels to a large extent.
