When faced with hair loss, many people begin investigating all available avenues for treatment and restoration of their hair. Medications and hair transplant surgery are two of the available treatments, but some may be hesitant to use these, or may not qualify for any number of reasons. In these cases, a natural approach to hair regrowth may be the best or only option for the treatment of hair loss. These naturally occurring products have been shown to stimulate hair regrowth. In this article we’ll review some ingredients and how to take a natural approach to hair regrowth.
Natural Hair Regrowth Products
Natural products have been used on the hair for centuries to increase density and promote a glossy, healthy luster. Today’s natural hair products are scientific formulations containing many of these ancient remedies.
- Rosemary and Sage. These two herbs are used mainly in tonics and act as stimulants. Combing these in boiling water along with peach leaf, nettle and burdock produces a hair wash that helps prevent hair loss while stimulating your own natural hair regrowth.
- Burdock, Nettle and Cayenne. These three herbs remove toxins from the body, which frees the hair to receive nourishment. They work together to stimulate hair regrowth.
- Spirulina. Spirulina is densely packed with essential nutrients like amino acids, essential fatty acids, and chlorophyll. It also contains beta-carotene and vitamins A, E, and the B complex group.
- Kelp. Kelp is a large, brownish seaweed that is loaded with more than 30 important nutrients. Its use as a dietary supplement aids in the prevention of hair thinning and balding.
- Jojoba Oil. Provides enhancement of hair growth, as well as being the best natural remedy for dandruff. For those suffering from skin and scalp sensitivities, Jojoba oil acts as a hypoallergenic moisturizing agent.
- Henna. Henna heals the shaft of the hair by its ability to repair and seal the hair cuticle. It is a great conditioner that maintains hair health and stops breakage. It also has anti-fungal properties and is hypoallergenic.
Massage and Exercise
Massaging the scalp promotes increased blood flow and oxygen delivery to the scalp and hair follicles. To perform this, you only need about five minutes of slow, overall massage on a daily basis.
Regular exercise benefits the scalp and hair in the same way it benefits the body as a whole. By increasing the blood supply to the tissues of the body, the cells are provided with an increase in oxygen and essential nutrients. This includes the cells of the scalp that are responsible for hair growth.
