Natural Remedies for Hair Growth

Hair loss, retarded hair growth, chemical damage, hair fall, and hair thinning are common hair woes for individuals of all ages, not just the elderly. If you are a young man suffering from a receding hair line or a young woman who has lost her hair due to chemical damage or hair stress, there are several all natural beauty alternatives available that may be able to assist in your hair's restoration. Although hair loss and hair growth rates vary among people, you can assist in your hair restoration by using natural hair growth herbs, medicines, and hair care products that have proven effective for centuries. You can also decrease your hair loss rate by avoiding hair care products that contain parabens, sulfates, silicones, and chemical preservatives.

If you don't know where to start or how to begin, here are some hair growth and hair loss remedies that are used all around the world and come straight from Mother Earth.

India

To stimulate hair growth, individuals used boiled sage leaves in coconut oil and applied the oil to their hair and scalps. Also, they used fenugreek powder mixed in coconut oil or milk as a hair growth shampoo. Lastly, amla oil was used as a hair stimulator. Amla oil was mixed with coconut oil and used to moisturize the scalp.

Africa

Africans used olive oil on both their scalps and hair to stimulate hair growth.

Egypt

The Egyptians employed several natural nutrients to stimulate hair growth. For example, the Egyptians applied chopped lettuce leaves to their bald spots. They also massaged their scalps with castor and almond oil.

South America

In the Amazon, the Taiwano Indians treated scalp problems with heated extract of bananas.

Victorian America

Hair loss was combated by applying a mixture of glycerin, rosemary oil, and distilled water

If you are not up to mixing your own hair growth potions, have no fear. You don't have to give up and purchase a hormone based, chemical loaded hair growth product. There are a few natural hair care companies that now make hair growth products containing these effective, all natural hair loss ingredients. The most popular of these companies is Beauty 4 Ashes Christian Health & Beauty Co., who recently updated its hair growth products to contain olive, castor, fenugreek, amla, coconut, and many other proven hair loss herbs and nutrients. Several customers have seen tremendous results. On their website, they offer a variety of products from sprays to shampoos to oils, so there is something to suit your fancy. They also have free hair loss information. You can learn about their products at wwwdiscoverb4acom.

      Awesome blog. I now understand that different ethnic groups require different treatments for baldness. I also found at http://baldness1.blogspot.com that there are several other ways to regrow hair. I urge anyone looking to regrow their hair to take a look.
