Treat Baldness At Home: 10 Home Remedial Measures

Updated on July 17, 2014

Baldness is a serious problem. Although it doesn’t hurt you or it doesn’t pain but it feels really weird. Baldness is a major problem in men but men are not the only ones who suffer from baldness, women also suffer from it.

So what you can do to get rid of baldness? I know it isn’t important to talk about baldness without talking about remedial measures.

To treat baldness, it is important to know the symptoms of baldness. If you don’t know about baldness, you cannot treat it, right? Thus before you even think of treating baldness, you need to ensure that you are suffering from baldness or you are about to suffer from it.

Symptoms of Baldness

Baldness refers to a situation where a person loses hair at a much higher rate. We all lose hair on daily basis but when you start losing hair excessively that means you are suffering from baldness.

  • Creation of bald patches on head
  • Thinning of hair
  • Excessive hair falling
  • Widening of hairline
  • Body hair loss
  • Decrease in weight significantly

These are just a few most common baldness symptoms. As soon as you see any of these symptoms, you need to start looking for remedial measures.

Do you prefer home remedial measures for baldness?

1) Castor Oil

Castor oil is one of the best oils that work best in case of baldness and hair loss. Castor oil makes your hair thick, it makes them strong and it helps in getting rid of baldness and bald patches. As soon as you witness any symptom of baldness, you need to start massaging your hair (and scalp) with castor oil. Massage daily for a few weeks and wait for the results.

Here is a link where you can find a lot of details about castor oil.

3) Lemon

Lemon and lemon juice is great for getting rid of baldness. You cannot use lemon juice directly in your head rather you need to mix lemon juice with any hair oil and then massage your hair. For best results, it is better to use lemon juice in conjunction with aloe vera gel or olive oil. After applying lemon juice (and hair oil) on your head, make sure that you wash your head with shampoo for nice results.

2) Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has the natural power to treat baldness and hair loss. Take a few drops of coconut oil and mix a drop of lemon juice in it, then massage your head with it. Wash after a couple of hours. It is better to leave oil in your head overnight.

4) Onion

Onion is rich in sulphur which increases blood circulation. Increased blood circulation in head will help fight baldness. You can use onion on your head in two ways:

a) Extract onion juice and mix honey in the onion juice. Apply it on your scalp gently. Wash your hair after 20 to 30 minutes. Onion juice kills all the bacteria and fungus which may or may not cause baldness but these are harmful for your hair.

b) You can rub onion on the bald patches directly. Rub gently for 15 minutes twice a day.

5) Honey

I love honey because it has the power to treat almost every disease. It is a great source for hair problems. Here are a few ways to use honey to get rid of baldness.

a) Take one tablespoon of cinnamon powder, two tablespoons of olive oil and two tablespoons of honey. Create the mixture and warm it a little bit. Apply it on infected area and leave for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes wash your hair with water.

b) Mix honey with egg yolk and create a mixture. Apply this mixture on bald patches. Leave for half an hour and then shampoo.

c) Add a few drops of lemon in honey and apply on infected area to get rid of baldness and hair loss.

d) Similarly mixing honey with onion juice can also be used.

e) Add honey in garlic paste and then apply it on your head.

6) Red Gram

You need to create a mixture of red grams and pigeon peas. Grind red grams and pigeon peas together and create a thin mixture that you can apply easily on your head. Take both the ingredients in equal quantity and grind well. Apply the mixture on bald patches.

7) Egg Yolk

We all know about the benefits of egg yolk for hair growth. You can use egg yolk in combination with honey as discussed above.

Alternately you can use egg yolk directly on your scalp. Beat the egg yolk well so that it transforms in the shape of a cream. Apply it on your head and leave for half an hour. Wash after half an hour.

8) Vinegar

Although all types of vinegar are good for hair growth but it is suggested to use apple cider vinegar for better results. Apply apple cider vinegar on your scalp and infected area and leave for some time. If possible, keep it applied overnight and wash your hair in the morning. Vinegar acts as a nice cure for baldness.

9) Banana

Banana can help you get rid of baldness and several other hair issues like split ends, dandruff, dryness and others. Add banana, yogurt and honey in skimmed milk, mix them well and drink the shake. It is a tasty shake that will boost hair growth.

Alternately you can create a banana mask. Take 2 bananas and mash them together. Add two tablespoons of honey, three tablespoons of olive oil, 3 tablespoons of buttermilk and mashed avocado. Mix and blend all the ingredients well. Apply the paste on your hair. Wash after 20 minutes.

10) Rosemary

Rosemary can be used in several ways for the treatment of baldness.

a) Take two tablespoons of rosemary oil, add one ounce of grapeseed oil. Massage your scalp and infected areas with the oil.

b) Boil dried rosemary leaves in water. Remove the leaves and wash your hair with the water. This works great for hair growth.

c) Add few drops of lemon juice, camphor oil and lavender oil in rosemary water. Mix it all up well and then apply the water on bald patches for cure.
