Hair loss is most common in men but it does happen to women as well. Not one person is happy about losing their hair and seeing it begin to thin out can cause alarm in anyone. There are plenty of treatments geared towards hair loss that you will find at your local shop but many of them are loaded with chemicals, and the last thing you want to do is bog your hair down with harsh ingredients. Thankfully, some research has shown that there are a few natural remedies that can be performed at home to help combat hair loss.
Hot Peppers to Spice Up Growth
A study that was published in Growth Hormone & IGF Research showed that capsaicin stimulates hair growth. Capsaicin is the part of the pepper that makes it hot, and if you don’t like spicy foods, not to worry because you can take it in a supplemental form. The study showed that individuals who took 6mg of capsaicin daily for five months showed significant improvement in growing their hair and not losing as much. Talk to your doctor before you start any new supplement in your diet, just to be on the safe side.
Onion Juice-No Tears, Only Hair Growth
There was a small study that was published by The Journal of Dermatology that showed 20 out of 23 individuals who used onion juice applied to their scalps saw regrowth in as little as six weeks. Not only is onion juice great to help grow your hair back but researchers have also found that it has anti-inflammatory effects. Win-win! You should be able to find a bottle at your local grocery store.
Herbs- Rosemary, Aloe Vera, and Sage
For many centuries individuals have used sage, rosemary, and aloe vera in the battle against hair loss. Sage has been proven to increase the thickness of your hair. Aloe vera and rosemary can be used to promote hair growth with only a capsule each day. Always talk to your doctor beforehand.
