Here are some proven natural remedies for reversing and preventing female hair loss.
- Prenatal vitamins containing folate, or a very good quality multi-vitamin
- Vitamin B complex
- Vitamin B shots
- Quality Biotin supplement
- Saw Palmetto extract
- Quality Probiotics to improve nutrient absorption
- Hydrolyzed Collagen supplement for gut health
Daily scalp massage with quality essential oils:
Massage your scalp every night using (one or a combination) of these potent healing plants.
- Clary Sage
- Ylang Ylang
Mix just a few drops with a teaspoon of skin-healthy carrier oil (like virgin cold-pressed coconut oil) and massage gently into your scalp before bed.
A scalp massage before bed feels good, and it’s an opportunity to nurture a part of yourself that’s always under scrutiny and attack. Love your scalp.
- Hairdryers (if you must, use the “cold air” function)
- Curling irons
- 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.
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.
