Hair loss is very common! You can never understand the grimness of this statement until and unless you yourself are the victim. Nothing can be more frightening and worrying than watching a brush full of hairs or the bathroom drain clogged with your silky tresses. Here are some not-so-common yet really effective natural solutions for hair loss.
Coconut is one of the richest sources of protein and hair-growing plant derivatives. You can easily grab a coconut oil from the nearest drug store. But they mostly contain chemicals and preservative. To prepare your own, all natural coconut milk at home, grate a fresh coconut milk. In half cup coconut flakes, add one cup water and simmer it on low flame for 5 to 7 minutes. Now strain the mixture to separate the flakes from the milk. Bring it to room temperature and then massage it into your scalp. For best results massage coconut oil on the scalp twice or thrice a week.
Aloe Vera Gel
Aloe Vera is most commonly known for skincare, but it is also very effective home remedy for hair loss. You can apply fresh aloe gel directly to the scalp to treat itchiness, dryness and dandruff. Alkaline aloe gel also helps balance the pH level of your scalp. Massage the gel directly into the scalp and leave it on for at least a couple of hours and then rise off with lukewarm water. Repeat this twice a week for a couple of months and you will notice significant improvement in your scalp condition.
- Aloe Vera Anti Hair Loss Shampoo: Mix fresh Aloe Vera gel with equal amounts of coconut milk and wheat germ oil in a clean bottle with a lid to secure. Shake well and use it to wash your scalp daily or every other day.
Neem is among the few most popular herbs in Asia known for its health as well as beauty benefits. Neem extract comprises the cheapest yet the most effective cleanser for all types of skins. It has some very effective hair benefits as well. Neem is a natural astringent and these properties make it a really effective remedy for dandruff and lice. Boil a handful of neem leaves in two cups of water and bring it boil. Boil the leaves until the water level falls to half. Now strain it and cool. Use this neem extract to rinse your hair once a week.
Yogurt is also an excellent home remedy for preventing hair loss. It is a natural conditioner that you can use for all hair types. Mix yogurt with black pepper and beat the mixture thoroughly until you get a thick paste. Apply the paste on your hair and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes or until it is dry. Wash off thoroughly with lukewarm water and mild shampoo. You can also try yogurt with honey. Mix 2 tablespoons of honey in one cup yogurt and apply to hair. Wash off after half an hour. This is best remedy for dried and damaged hair. It will make your hair healthy and shiny.
Hair Care Tips
Hair Loss treatment also requires some simple lifestyle changes. Here are some hair care tips to help you keep your hair in their best health:
- Massage your scalp frequently, it helps increase blood circulation
- Be gentle with wet hair – never brush soaking wet locks
- Do not wash your hair with hot water

Permanent Solution For Hair Loss
While all of the above stated natural remedies are really effective in countering hair loss, their efficacy varies from person to person based on the sufferer’s genes and the severity of the problem. Furthermore, these natural solutions need your time and patience to be effective. If you are seeking instant, guaranteed and permanent solution for lost hair, a hair transplant surgery may be worth considering.
A hair transplant surgery does not help grow new hair follicles. Rather, it redistributes existing healthy hair on your head to add a fuller and thicker look to your scalp. Using either of the Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique, the surgeon harvests healthy, balding resistant hairs from the back or sides of the scalp and transplants them into the areas with bald patches or thinning hair. Though the recovery process is a little lengthy (spanning over a year), the wait and patience is worth it, as the hairs thus obtained will in all probability remain on your head for the rest of your life.
The Hair Transplant Center also offers permanent hair restoration through hair transplant surgery. If you are interested, or want to know more about the procedure, contact us now by filling the free online consultation form.
