Thousands of women and men are suffering from hair fall. The prospect of losing your glorious hair can be scary. If you too are suffering from thinning hair, then you need to find out the cause of this condition. Underlying diseases, stress and deficiency in certain vitamins and minerals can all lead to hair fall and thinning hair. Besides tackling these factors you can also try some home remedies for thinning hair.
5 Home Remedies For Thinning Hair
Amla (Gooseberry) And Egg Yolk
Egg yolk contains essential proteins that helps to repair hair and strengthen it from within. Amla conditions hair from root to shaft and makes hair more elastic and thereby less prone to breakage.
Soak a cup of amla in olive oil overnight. The next day, remove the amla from oil and grind them in a mortar and pestle, discarding the seeds. Once you have a fine paste, transfer the amla paste into a medium-sized bowl.
To this add an egg yolk and combine well. Apply this amla and egg yolk mixture over your hair and scalp. After half an hour, wash off the mask with a mild shampoo.
Mustard Oil And Hibiscus
The hibiscus flower is well-known for its nourishing and hair strengthening properties. Crush a handful of hibiscus flowers into a fine paste. To this add two to three tablespoons of pure mustard oil.
Mix together and apply this to your scalp and hair. Make sure that your massage this mixture well on your scalp with your fingertips. This will increase blood circulation in your scalp and promote hair growth.
Avoid Over Washing
In our enthusiasm to have an oil-free scalp and hair, most of us resort to washing our hair every day. But it is not necessary to wash your every day. Doing so will only strip your hair of essential oils and make hair dull and lacklustre.
In addition to this, most shampoos and conditioners contain harsh chemicals that makes your hair weak which leads to hair fall. So, to avoid thinning hair and hair loss, wash your hair only twice a week with a mild shampoo that is free of chemicals.
Banana And Yogurt
Blend a banana with a tablespoon of fresh yogurt until you have a thick puree without any lumps. Part your hair and apply this mask on your scalp and hair, making sure that your hair is well-coated with this mixture.
Wear a shower cap over your head and let the mask remain in your hair for 30-40 minutes. Wash off with a mild shampoo. Bananas contain potassium, natural oils and vitamin A and vitamin C that increases elasticity and strengthens hair roots. Yogurt helps to give shine and bounce to hair.
To strengthen weak hair roots, there is nothing more effective than coconut oil. Heat some coconut oil and allow it to cool down until it is still warm but comfortable to touch.
Part your hair into sections and rub the warm coconut oil on your scalp and hair. The coconut oil will nourish your hair and strengthen the hair follicles. Wash off with a gentle shampoo after an hour.
These were some effective remedies for thinning hair. Follow these home remedies regularly to see results. If you do not notice any change and your hair fall does not stop, then it is best that you seek the advice of a doctor.
