How to Combat Hair Loss Naturally with 4 Easy Tips

Posted August 10, 2013 by

Realizing that you’re losing your hair is a traumatizing experience. One day everything’s ok; the next, your hair is coming out in clumps. This can be caused by a number of factors,such as improper nutrition, medical conditions (i.e. thyroid issues, hormone imbalances, etc.), alopecia, and even stress. Here are some tips on how to naturally tackle hair loss.

1. Visit Your Doctor
The first plan of action is to visit your doctor to be certain there aren’t any medical conditions adversely affecting your hair. If your doctor says everything is good to go, then it’s time to begin combating the issue at home.


2. Mix it Up – Naturally
Try mixing some Jamaican Black Castor Oil with Sweet Spanish Almond Oil and applying the mixture to thinning areas two times a day. After a few weeks, you should begin to notice thicker hair in those areas. I would like to note that it is important to use these exact products, as they are generally unrefined (meaning they possess all the minerals and nutrients needed to assist with hair growth) and they have some of the highest concentrations of fatty lipids essential for stronger, more resilient hair that is resistant to shedding.

 

3. Stop Stress at the Door
While all of us have stress at some point or another, increased and unnecessary stress is a big reason for hair loss. If you’re stressed out on a consistent basis, work to reduce this issue, or alleviate it altogether.  If it is inevitable, such as work, for example, take regular time out for yourself to relax and rejuvenate. Book a once per week massage, or find a quiet place to meditate each morning.  Just make sure you grab some “me-time”.  This can make a huge difference in not only your hair, but also your quality of life.


4. Nourish from Inside
This is one of the most important solutions. You can use the best conditioners, pomades and serums, but if your nutrition and water intake is lacking, hair loss could certainly not be far behind. Most of us don’t get all the right vitamins and minerals our hair needs.  Rather than try to figure it all out (unless you have a LOT of free time), try an all-natural hair supplement such as Hair Essentials or another supplement of  choice.  Taken daily, these supplements are packed with the power of all those things we don’t get enough of – vitamins, amino acids and key minerals that reduce hair loss, while providing natural shine, resilience and growth.

Consuming an adequate amount of green, leafy veggies works wonders for the hair.  Consuming green, leafy vegetables gives you stronger hair and faster growth.  Not a big vegetable fan?  No worries. You can easily fit in a few handfuls in by making a delicious green smoothie each morning. Mix your green of choice together with, say, a banana, a few strawberries and almond milk and you won’t even taste the greens. (Bonus: don’t be surprised if you also notice your skin begin to clear when you start doing this!)

Water is key. Just as we need water to survive, hair needs water to thrive.  Think of your hair like a plant for a second. If you don’t water your plants, the leaves will fall off and your plant will die. Same goes for your hair. If you don’t “water” your hair from the inside out, it has an increased chance of shedding, resulting in significant hair loss.  Try to get at least 8 cups of water a day.


Keep in mind that it will take a little bit of time, but by combining all of these solutions and keeping consistent with them, you should see a big improvement in your hair.
