Hair loss affects millions of people nationwide each year. The causes for this phenomenon come from a wide range of things, from hereditary reasons to health reasons. Whatever the cause, the majority of them come with ways in which you can battle back.
In many cases, hair loss is a sign that the body isn’t receiving the nutrients it needs in order to keep the heat follicles alive and healthy. This could be due to a diet that lacks things like fish oil, calcium and iron. Stress and anxiety are also mental reasons that hair loss tends to occur. Being healthy in both body and mind is essential for normal and healthy hair growth.
Foods rich in iron and protein such as meat and fish are a great way to boost the health of the hair and its follicles from the inside to the outside. If necessary a daily routine that is bolstered by supplements that contain these hair helpers is a great way to go.
If you’re looking for other ways to keep that head of hair of yours as healthy and luxurious as you possibly can, applying natural homemade growth serums has been noted to work for many suffering from unwanted hair loss. A less expensive and far more natural approach to this issue, the serum combines herbs and essential oils that are great for the scalp and hair.
One tried and tested approach to the serum is to use ingredients such as nettle which is rich in both iron and vitamins A, C and K. It stimulates hair growth as it also has potassium and magnesium in it. Horsetail is an important ingredient to help revitalize the scalp because it contains silica. Aloe vera gel naturally thickens and soothes the scalp and serves as a smoothing base for this serum to really take a hold of the follicles. Clary sage, rosemary, and lavender are essential oils that provide the nutrients that the hair needs to remain healthy and continue to grow.
To make a homemade serum, simply boil distilled water and add the dried nettle and horsetail leaves. Add all of the herbs and let them sit for 15 minutes while the water cools down. Then, strain the herbs out and pour the herb-infused liquid into a spray bottle. Add aloe vera and the remaining essential oils and the serum is complete. Use once a day, making sure to spray at the root and really penetrate the scalp. Hair loss can be combated with the things you find in your own kitchen.
