Undoubtedly, your confidence may degrade significantly because of such a bald spot. Yet, what if you have more than one bald spot? Well, you may find yourself feeling depressed each day thinking of how to grow your hair to the maximum extent possible. Well, this is when a hair growth tonic often comes in handy.

Types of Hair Growth Tonic

Speaking of hair growth tonic, you need to consider quite a few things. There are two main types of hair growth tonic. With one type, what you’ll get is a deceleration of your hair loss. As a result, you can’t really expect to grow some hair if you’re using this type of tonic. Well, you may be fooled by how it is called, “hair growth tonic”. This type often comprises natural substances, including seaweed featuring amino acids, aloe vera, vitamins, and minerals. This type of tonic is capable of keeping your skin from irritation and reducing inflammation at the same time.

Keep in mind that in order for your hair to grow, an ideal hair growth environment is needed. Thus, this second type of hair growth tonic collaborates with your hair scalp to achieve such an environment.

Consult Your Family Doctor

Nevertheless, regardless of which hair growth tonic type you choose, it is recommended that you consult your family doctor in advance. Your family doctor should possess a comprehensive knowledge regarding the health history surrounding your family members, including you. With that being said, chances are only your family doctor knows best what prescriptions should be given to you.

Making Your Own Homemade Hair Growth Tonic

Well, of course, you may not always want to consult your family doctor because of some certain factors, such as the feeling of embarrassment you fear you may encounter by discussing about your baldness with your family doctor. In this case, the internet is often pretty helpful. You can do some online researches yourself regarding how to grow your hair with the help of a tonic. As a matter of fact, you can even make your own homemade hair growth tonic. Yet, before you decide to make your own tonic, keep in mind that you may encounter some undesirable negative side effects. However, if you insist, here’re the steps you need to take.

Step 1: Gather the Required Oils

Find some rosemary and carrier oils. Carrier oils are based on vegetables and they have a fine capability of keeping your skin from irritation. You can try to find jojoba, sweet almond, olive, or coconut oil for your carrier oils. Most of the time, a health-food store is where you should go to if you need this kind of oils.

Step 2: Get Your Microwave

After you have obtained the oils required to make your own homemade hair growth tonic, you’ll need a microwave. Try to pour between one and three tablespoons of the carrier oils into a bowl. Keep in mind, though, that you’ll want to warm only to the touch and leave the scalding intact. Therefore, a 10-second warming up should be enough. Also, if you think that the oils are getting too hot, never hesitate to cool them down for a minute or so.

Step 3: Stir the Oils

Your warmed-up carrier oils will need about two to five drops of your rosemary oils. Don’t forget to make sure that those two types of oils blend together by stirring them with your finger.

Step 4: Apply to Your Hair

Make sure your hair is dry at this moment. Use your fingers to get and massage the oil mixture onto your hair scalp thoroughly. Apply the oil mixture to the entire surface area of your hair.

Step 5: Hair Moisturizer

Saturate the root to the tip of your hair by moving down your fingers – still covered with the oil mixture – towards your hair shafts. This way, your hair will get moisturized and thus will stay healthy.

Step 6: Get a Warm Towel

Now, you need a towel to cover your hair by wrapping it around your head. However, you need to make sure that the towel has been warmed up for at least ten to thirty seconds. Then, just leave the towel like that for approximately 45 minutes, if not an hour.

Step 7: Wash Your Hair

Prepare a shampoo and a conditioner, you may need them. Take some cool water and wash out your hair so that it is clear of those oils you applied to it before. Keep in mind that some oil residues may stay on your hair if you don’t shampoo your hair. When this happens, the residues may dull your hair. Therefore, shampoo and condition your hair necessarily.

Step 8: Repeating Leads to Successful Hair Growth

If you’re really serious about growing your hair, you should repeat doing all the steps mentioned above at least once each month. You may also apply the hair growth tonic to your hair once in every week. Follow the tips and rest assured, you’ll have your dream hair before you know it.

Natural Hair Growth

Nevertheless, if, after all, you don’t want to use any hair growth tonic to help you grow your hair, you can also grow your hair naturally. But, after you have got the hair you dream of, don’t forget that you need to take a good care of your hair unless you’re fine to be bald again.
