Home Remedies for Hair Loss

Oct. 12
Unusual or high amounts of hair fall can be alarming. While it is normal to lose around 80 to 100 strands of hair a day, finding hair on your pillow or clogging up your drain can lead to stress and anxiety about the fullness of your hair.

There are many reasons your hair may be thinning, including genetics, hormones, medicine, nutritional deficiencies, and tight styles. If your hair is thinning because of genetics, then there is little you can do about it besides keep the hair you have healthy. When it comes to stress, hormones, and nutritional deficiencies, all of these can be fixed with a proper diet. Finally, tight styles can cause traction alopecia, which is when your hair falls out around your temples and your hairline.
If you are suffering from hair loss, here are six home remedies that may help alleviate your hair problems. 
  • Avocado hair mask.

    Avocados are extremely rich in biotin and fat, two things your hair needs to grow healthy and strong, and an avocado hair mask is simple to whip up in your kitchen. All you need is one avocado, one tablespoon of olive oil, and the juice of one lemon. Blend all the ingredients, apply the paste to your hair, and then leave it on for 20 minutes before you shampoo and condition your hair. If you want some added benefits, you can always add a banana to your avocado hair mask.
  • Jojoba oil.

    Sometimes your hair is thinning because of prolonged dryness, dandruff, or a chronically dry scalp. If any of these are your issue, then moisture is what you need to set your hair on the right track. Jojoba oil is a powerful oil that can help hair cells reproduce faster and moisturize your hair follicles to make your new growth healthy and strong. The best part is jojoba oil will not leave your hair feeling greasy and over-moisturized.
  • Aloe Vera.

    Aloe vera gel is another great home remedy for thinning hair or hair loss. Not only can aloe vera soothe a damaged scalp, but it can also help prevent damage from styling by keeping your hair detangled and moisturized throughout the styling process. Aloe vera gel can also help remove sebum, an oil that can clog your hair follicles and prevent hair from growing. The best way to use aloe vera gel is to massage the gel directly into your scalp. 
  • Egg hair mask.

    It may not sound very pleasant, but an egg hair mask is an excellent way to inject your hair with tons of nutrients at one time. Eggs are rich in sulfur, phosphorus, and protein, making them a perfect treatment for hair fall. To make this mask, mix one egg white with a teaspoon of olive oil and honey. Apply the paste from the root to tip and then rinse it out after 20 minutes.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse.

    It's very important to make sure that you are getting all of the product build-ups out of your hair every time you wash. Put simply, if your scalp doesn't feel squeaky clean, then you're probably leaving a little bit of sebum behind after your washes. One way to combat this is with an apple cider vinegar rinse. Before you wash your hair, massage apple cider vinegar into your scalp to loosen and remove excess sebum.
  • Cayenne pepper.

    Another important factor in preventing hair loss is to make sure that your scalp is getting an adequate amount of blood circulation. If you're looking for a way to stimulate blood circulation on your scalp, consider using spicy cayenne peppers. Cayenne peppers contain capsaicin, which causes intense blood flow. 
    Hair loss can be caused by many different things, including genetics, stress, medication, tight and frequent styling, and nutritional deficiencies. If you're experiencing an unusual amount of hair loss, then it's time to start evaluating why your hair may be falling more than usual. Remember, it's completely normal to lose 80 to 100 strands of hair a day, but if you find yourself losing more than that, then these home remedies may help restore health and body to your hair.

    Debunking Terms Used to Describe Skincare
    Debunking Terms Used to Describe Skincare
    Hey Beauty’s 🙋🏽‍♀️ Found a really interesting piece on Instagram from @maximumskin about the terms that don’t really mean anything like medical grade, cosmeceuticals and spa grade. 🧐 He stated it was a 100% fact so I did what I do and researched 📚 products can be sold as: cosmetics, classed as articles intended to cleanse, beautify or promote attractiveness drugs, intended for the use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment or prevention of a disease cosmetic-drug e.g sunscreen 🧴 beautifies and prevention 🧚‍♀️ Medical grade, the primary difference between over the counter and medical grade skincare products is that one can only be prescribed by a medical professional. Medical grade means there’s a higher concentration of active ingredients for a specific issue. Because of their potent nature the formulas tend to work quicker and you see better results. 🧚‍♀️ Cosmeceuticals are products that have both cosmetic and therapeutic (medical or drug-like) effects, and are intended to have a beneficial effect on skin health and beauty. Like cosmetics, they are applied topically as creams or lotions but contain active ingredients that have an effect on skin cell function. The term cosmeceuticals has no legal definition under the law. 🧚‍♀️ Spa grade, If you get an SPA or SPE grade, it means that you have not passed an assessment task, e.g. an exam. Both are awarded because of a special consideration permit. So the claim that these terms don’t really mean anything was because of legal definition. I can see his point, these terms are a great selling tactic. What you think beauty’s? Selling tactic or necessary words to describe a product ? Drop a comment below. 😀 Jade

    Cleansers are an essential step in everyone’s skincare routine, but it can be difficult to find the right one for your skin. The new Aveeno Calm + Restore nourishing oat cleanser has been my new go-to daily cleanser and I love it. ❤️🙌 Aveeno has always been a brand to create formulations that target dry and sensitive skin and this cleanser is no different. This cleanser is great for people all skin types but would likely benefit dry or combination skin most. The incorporated oat complex helps restore build the skin’s moisture barrier and soothe itchy skin. There is no stripping effect with this cleanser, which is something too always look for with your cleanser. Other pros about this product are its fragrance free (limiting any irritant reactions) as well as great pricing. On amazon, you can find a bottle for under $10.‼️‼️ TRUTH: If you are trying to fight acne or blackheads I recommend against this cleanser and try finding something with salicylic acid. Have you tried the new Aveeno cleanser? Let me know your thoughts in the comments! ⤵️

    @cheriethanks for the cute sweatshirt! I am obsessed. Here is my am routine! sisley - FLORAL TONING LOTION First I tone and prep my skin with this toner. I love this toner so much because it is so hydrating and doesn’t strip the skin. It also moisturizes while helping to clean and prep it to absorb other products. NATURIUM - Hyaluronic Acid Essence 2% Then I use this essence. I love this brand so much and this essence is so hydrating and light. It helps plump and prepares it for the serum. NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% Next I use this serum which I have been enjoying. It is super gentle that I can even use it during the day. So far my skin has been tolerating it very well. I also notice my dark spots decreasing much quicker. LORD JONES - Acid Mantle Repair CBD Moisturizer Then I use this moisturizer that I am obsessed with. It so far has been my favorite product of the year. It’s so hydrating and calming. It feels amazing on the skin as well. Last I finish off with a sunscreen. I previously reviewed this before! It’s from Korean brand Corthe. ^^ what do you like to do in your morning routine?
