It’s only normal for women to lose 50 to 100 hair strands a day. But if you think you’re losing more, try these natural remedies to prevent excessive hair fall.
Consume foods that are rich in zinc, vitamins A, B complex, C, E, omega-3 fatty acids and proteins. Consider adding more of these to your diet: carrots, oats, whole grains, brown rice, green leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, lentils, sweet potatoes, pumpkin seeds, oysters, nuts such as walnuts and almonds, flaxseed oil (Linseed oil) or grounded flaxseeds, fish such as salmon and tuna, eggs, beans, yogurt, and low-fat cheese.
Drink plenty of water.
Drink at least 8 cups of 8 oz water per day. This will help you stay hydrated and assist hair growth.
Practice meditation, take walks, or do yoga. Consider writing in a journal to help sort through daily stresses.
Treat your hair well.
Avoid tight hairstyles, such as braids, buns or ponytails. Don’t twist, rub or pull your hair excessively. Be gentle when washing your hair with warm (not hot) water. Don’t brush your hair too hard.
A wide-toothed comb can help you avoid pulling out excess hairs. Minimise harsh treatments on your hair like hot rollers, curling irons and permanents.
Wash your hair at least every 3 days.
Do this with a gentle hair cleanser or shampoo to remove all the accumulated dust, dirt, oil and bacterial build up. Keep it clean at all times to avoid hair fall due to an unclean scalp and infections.
Try to switch to shampoos that are sulfate, silicone and paraben-free.
These shampoos will help avoid loading your scalp and hair with harsh chemicals that damage the hair, making it brittle and more prone to breakage.
Consider hot oil treatment.
Natural oils such as coconut, olive, canola, jojoba, sesame, etc. can be used to massage the scalp for countering hair fall and encouraging new hair growth. Warm your chosen oil by heating it (ensure that it’s not too hot but bearable.) Gently massage your scalp using your fingers or a cotton ball. Then, wear a shower cap, leave it on for about 1 hour and rinse off using a mild shampoo.
Use natural juices.
You can rub your scalp with garlic, onion or ginger juice. Leave it on overnight and wash it thoroughly in the morning.
Get a head massage.
Massaging your scalp for a few minutes daily will keep your hair follicles active. Use a few drops of lavender or bay essential oil in an almond or sesame oil base.
