It can be a frightening experience to have excessive hair loss. Certain medications, stress, exposure to dust, heat and sun or a vitamin deficiency can cause hair loss. You can choose hair fall medications, such as Rogaine or Propecia. But if you want a more natural way of solving a hair loss problem, you could experiment with hair fall remedies.
Hair fall remedies utilize hair-stimulating ingredients, such as coconut oil, olive oil, almond oil, fenugreek seeds and sage. Hair loss remedies do not usually give immediate results, but improve your hair health over time and eventually promote hair regrowth. Some hair fall remedies may take months before you see results.
What Ingredients In Hair Fall Remedies Are Best?
Coconut oil – Coconut oil softens and aids in detangling natural hair. It fights against dandruff and strengthens damaged, dry hair. In hair fall remedies, it keeps hair from losing protein, one of the major reasons hair breaks and is lost.
Olive oil – Olive oil’s essential ingredients include Vitamins A and E, which both help to strengthen natural hair. This relatively inexpensive hair growth oil improves natural hair’s elasticity and penetrates the hair shaft to smooth and soften hair.
Almond oil – Almond oil contains a lot of protein, which strengthens natural hair. It also has vitamins that keep the scalp and hair healthy. The Vitamin B complex in almond oil can prevent hair loss, making this oil a significant ingredient in hair fall remedies.
Fenugreek seeds – Fenugreek seeds also contain protein, which stimulates hair growth and reduces hair loss. The seeds have hormone precursors which replenish growth. When using them in hair fall remedies, crushing or boiling the seeds are the best way to restore the hair shaft.
Sage – Sage contains healing and aromatic properties that can combat hair loss. Its antifungal and antibacterial properties rid the hair of fungal and bacterial infections, which might cause hair loss. Sage has estrogenic substances, which can promote natural hair growth.
