At the first sign of hair loss, your first move should be to make an appointment with your doctor so that he can hopefully rule out any serious health conditions. This is imperative as diabetes, thyroid disease and lupus can be causing your fallout. When these, or any other problem, are ruled out, you can explore natural hair loss remedies.
Natural hair loss treatments
The easiest place to start is with your diet. Many people just don’t eat as well as they should, choosing high-salt, high-fat and high-caloric foods that offer almost no nutrition. What does this have to do with your falling hair? Turns out, a lot. Undernourished or malnourished hair follicles — where hair growth happens — will struggle to create healthy strands of hair or may stop altogether. What is good for your hair is good for you. The best way to feed your follicles is with a nutrient-rich diet. Go for color on your plate: rich reds and oranges, dark greens, vibrant yellows, deep blues. Fill your plate with fruits and vegetables in these beautiful colors and you are sure to be consuming the nutrition your body craves and thrives on. Supplement your new and improved diet with hair helping herbs, vitamins and minerals — antioxidants such as beta carotene and vitamin C; herbs such as nettle root, gotu kola and saw palmetto; B vitamin family member biotin; minerals such as zinc.
Also try something topical such as an apple cider vinegar scalp treatment. Apple cider vinegar is full of healthful enzymes, minerals and antioxidants that do wonders for your body inside and out. To make your scalp treatment mix, in equal parts, water and raw, unpasteurized, unfiltered apple cider vinegar. Put this mixture into a bottle that is safe to leave in your shower where it will be ready and convenient. After you shampoo your hair, pour some of the rinse onto your scalp and gently massage it in. Leave on for five minutes and rinse out. You can also benefit your hair by taking a teaspoon of this raw apple cider vinegar with water three times a day.
