Everybody has experienced some type of hair loss one way or another which has probably made us feel concerned and worried about its reasons and how long it would last. It’s a fact, for example, that seasonal hair fall is very common especially during Spring and Autumn.
So here, we will give you some top natural tips for hair fall which can easily be followed and will boost your hair from both the inside and outside.
Keep in mind that you can also follow these tips as a preventive measure to strengthen the hair and prevent it from falling.
Add Natural Foods For Hair Loss To Your Diet
Each hair consists of keratin which is created when amino acids, minerals, vitamins and lipids are formed. Still, the problem begins when our body is not provided with the right healthy foods which contain all these necessary nutrients to create keratin.
Nutrients that you need to consume through natural foods to prevent and help with hair loss are complex B vitamins and vitamin E, iron, magnesium, zinc and unsaturated fatty acids. Foods which contain these nutrients are fish, eggs, lean meat, fresh fruits and vegetables (preferably organic), legumes, milk, wholegrain bread, cereals as well as virgin olive oil.
One highly nutritional natural food which does not only boost your body from the inside but also slows down hair loss and improves the appearance of skin as well as strengthens the nails is royal jelly. Still, you have to make sure that you are not allergic to it. You can buy royal jelly from health shops, pharmacies as well as online, and you should always make sure that it looks white and shiny.
Try to Use Natural Oils as a Hair Fall Treatment
Using laurel oil for hair has been often used by my mother to strengthen our hair as children but other natural oils are similarly effective.
Once a week, before washing your hair, massage it for a few minutes using olive oil and then spread it all along the hair. Let it function for half an hour covering your hair with either a bathing cap or a warm towel since the heat will maximize the oil´s toning up and therapeutic properties.
Apart from olive oil, you can use laurel oil which contains fatty acids and is rich in vitamin E. It will tone up, protect and strengthen your hair. Other beneficial natural oils for hair are almond and avocado oil.
Still, you need to keep in mind that all these natural oils and especially laurel oil might make your hair feel greasy and oily, so you will need to shampoo thoroughly after using them. The secret to get rid of the oil more easily is not to wet the hair before shampooing.
So, what you have to do is pour some shampoo on your palm, mix it with a little warm water and then apply it on the hair. Also, if you apply any of the above natural oils, there is no need for a hair conditioner after shampooing.
