Natural Remedies

Here are some proven natural remedies for reversing and preventing female hair loss.


Supplements:


Daily scalp massage with quality essential oils:

Massage your scalp every night using these potent healing plant extracts. Whatever ones you choose, Rosemary is at the top of the list for a reason – it’s the most studied and effective.

How to use Rosemary Oil for Hair Loss:

  1. Mix just a few drops of Rosemary (by itself or with any of these essential oils) with a teaspoon of skin-healthy carrier oil (like virgin cold-pressed coconut oil).
  2. Massage the combined oil gently into your scalp before bed.
  3. No need to rinse it out – these can absorb into your skin. And you’ll smell amazing!

A scalp massage before bed feels good, and it’s an opportunity to nurture a part of your body that’s always under scrutiny and attack. Love your scalp, love your hair, and most importantly: love yourself.


AVOID:

  • Hairdryers (if you must, use the “cold air” function)
  • Curling irons
  • Perms
  • Bleach and hair dyes, especially permanent dyes
  • Sulfate-based hair products of any kind
  • Frequent hair washing: wash your hair two to four times a week maximum, to allow your natural oils to replenish and nourish your scalp
  • Tight hairstyles like cornrows, tight buns, or tight ponytails – this puts unnecessary pressure on the follicle and pulls hair out.

Consider trying:

Um, I said *NO* poo…

The “No-poo” method of using ONLY baking soda and vinegar for cleaning your hair and scalp. No poo is a silly wordplay meaning “NO SHAMPOO”. 🙂

Some of us are simply too sensitive to chemicals and additives to ever use so-called safe shampoos and hair products.

This is a radical step, but it makes a HUGE difference for some people who swear by it.

As with any big change, it takes some time to adjust to no-poo. You may go through a week or two of greasy hair as your scalp adjusts to producing a normal rather than excessive amount of oil.

Most commercially-available shampoo products can be toxic and damaging to the scalp, and many people have had success with hair regrowth after stopping shampoo altogether. 

Others, including me, go no-poo in periods of scalp or skin stress or irritation.
