Home Remedies to Promote Hair Re-growth
Hair loss and balding is referred to as alopecia. It is a natural by product of aging and is affected by several factors such as heredity and hormones. It affects males more than females, however; it can result in total baldness in both sexes. In addition, poor circulation, acute illness, poor diet, and vitamin deficiencies all promote hair loss. By maintaining good nutrition, and following a few tips here, you can gain some control over your hair loss solution.
The following NUTRIENTS are VITAL to your follicle health:
Essential Fatty Acids see label for dosage - (flaxseed oil, salmon oils, primrose oils)
Raw thymus (glandular) - 500mg/daily
Vitamin B complex - 50 mg/ (3) times daily
Vitamin C - 3,000 – 10,000 mg/daily
Vitamin E - 400 IU/day increasing slowly to 800 IU
Zinc - 50 - 100 mg/daily
HERBS can also help in the battle against hair loss. Try the following:
Rinse hair with apple cider vinegar and sage teas to help hair growth
Massage 10 drops of Tea Tree Oil on your scalp and then shampoo. The oil combats bacteria
Ginkgo Biloba improves the circulation of the scalp (taken orally – see label)
Horsetail is a good source for silica ( taken orally – see label)
Green Tea and Saw Palmetto
Eating a DIET rich in vegetables and fruit and low on starches may help slow down the process of hair loss. The antioxidants in these foods encourage hair growth by protecting the hair follicles. Biotin is also a great supplement to take. It promotes healthy hair and skin and may even prevent hair loss in some men.
Use SHAMPOOS and CONDITIONERS that contain:
- Biotin and Silica
- Aloe Vera
- Vitamins C & E
- Chamomile, Marigold and/or Ginseng
Finally, be easy on your hair. Don’t overuse alcohol based products. Avoid rough treatment such as towel dying (blot instead), blow dryers, and combing your hair when wet.
