If you have balding or thinning hair, you’re probably looking for hair regrowth treatments. And, I might just have the perfect solution.
I won’t tell you about those expensive, chemical-leached products you use but about natural remedies you probably haven’t tried yet. They’re not only affordable but effective too. What’s more, you already have them in your kitchen. Before I tell you about them, lets first take a look why you’re losing hair.
Why you’re losing hair
The protein keratin produced in your hair follicles makes up your hair. And, as the follicles produce new cells, the old ones are pushed out through the surface of your skin at the rate of approximately 15 cm per year. Thus, the hair you actually see is nothing but a string of dead keratin cells.
Age, disease, and a lot of other factors can influence each follicle that has it’s own life cycle. You have between 100,000 and 150,000 hairs on your head. And, because you lose an daily average of 100 hairs, you have to maintain normal volume by replacing the lost hair.
Three natural treatments for hair regrowth
1. Green tea
Green tea is loaded with antioxidants that help prevent hair loss and boost hair growth. All you have to do is apply warm green tea to your scalp. Then, leave it on for an hour and wash it off.
2. Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar can help maintain the pH balance of your hair as it gently cleanses your scalp. This is what makes it the perfect treatment for hair growth. Simply mix one cup of water with 15 ml of apple cider vinegar. This solution will give your hair a healthy shine. Use it as a final rinse after washing your hair.
3. Coconut milk
Coconut milk is packed with essential fats, iron and potassium. It is one of the most effective hair regrowth treatments. Your best bet is to use coconut milk directly from a fresh coconut. Add four drops of lavender essential oil and half a squeeze of lemon to the milk and mix thoroughly. Apply this mixture to your scalp and leave it on for four to five hours. Rinse it off with warm water.
