Some Tips and Tricks to Prevent Hair Loss
Effective Hair Loss Treatments
It is considered normal if you lose some hair when your hair is wet or when you comb through your hair. But how much hair exactly are you losing? If you lose around 100 strands of hair a day, then it's okay. If you are losing much more strands of hair then you might just be suffering from a hair loss problem.
As soon as you are sure that you are having a hair loss problem, you should consult an expert. They will find the root of the problem and help you out more effectively. People who are prone to baldness due to genes or a skin disorder should definitely visit the doctor to get proper treatments.
If you are experiencing just temporary hair loss, then you can get it treated even at home by using some really effective remedies. Let me tell you some really useful home remedies for hair loss.
1. Hair Massage
I remember my grandmother giving me really good hair massages when I was a small girl. I have really thick hair now so I would like to think that the massage contributed a lot. Experts say that hair massages help in making the hair follicles stronger. A good 10-15 minutes of massage everyday helps in blood circulation. Another effective method is to massage your hair while keeping your head upside down. This increases blood flow to your roots and improves the overall health of your hair.
Hair massages also help in growth of hair because while massaging you end up putting the right amount of pressure onto the scalp. You can either give yourself a hair massage or you can ask someone to help you out.
If you feel too lazy or tired to do your own hair massage (which is mostly the case nowadays), then you should opt for a good motorized scalp massage device.
2. Reduce Dandruff with Oil Treatments
Scalp infections and dandruff are the main culprits when it comes to hair fall. If your scalp isn't healthy, how can your hair be?
Minor scalp infections and further hair fall can be prevented if you give yourself some really good hot oil treatments. You can get yourself some ready to use hot oils to give yourself a treatment at home. Hot oils that contain coconut, sesame and olive are recommended. If you want a more relaxing experience then oils containing lavender and thyme might do the magic for you.
My own personal favorite oil is the Kama Ayurveda Bringadi Oil which cured my scalp infection with regular use. It need not be heated. You can pour a few drops into your hand and massage it into you scalp. I had severe dandruff issues and this oil helped me soothe my scalp and even reduced hair fall.
Another way to combat scalp infections is to use apple cider vinegar. It is a good cleanser and even removes product buildup. Use it once a week to see good results. Your scalp will feel more fresh.
3. Use Extracts From Aloe Vera
People in tropical countries treat their hair loss problems with aloe vera extracts. Did you know that aloe vera can be used as a shampoo by using the fresh pulp that can be applied directly on the scalp and hair? Plus you can even use it as a hair tonic in conjunction with other herbs. Aloe vera juice is even good for the body!
4. Use A Combination Of Cinnamon And Honey
Make your hair stronger by using a combination of cinnamon powder, honey and olive oil. Many people swear by this treatment! Massage your scalp with this paste and then wash it off with shampoo.
5. Try Using Ginger Extracts
Ginger helps in the healthy growth of hair follicles, so use a small piece of ginger to apply directly on a bald spot. Since this can get quite smelly, I would recommend using a combination of ginger extracts plus fine lead powder to get effective results.
