Is There a Way To Reduce Hair Loss Naturally?

Both men and women experience hair loss for many reasons. Poor diet, stress, wearing helmets, genetics and pollution are just a few of the most common reasons. There are treatments available for hair loss that work. To learn more about this, consult this Singapore DERMATOLOGIST. A natural treatment for hair loss that can be done at home will also help. A few natural home treatments are:


Hot Oil Treatments

A quarter of a cup of natural olive, coconut or sesame oil can be heated until it is warm, but not too hot, and gently massaged it into the scalp. A shower cap can be put over the hair to seal in the heat for one hour. The hair can then be shampooed. The massage is part of the treatment and should not be hurried.






Natural Juice Treatment

The juice of onions, garlic or ginger can be applied to the scalp and left overnight. These juices should not be combined, but only used one at a time. In the morning, the hair can be shampooed.



Green Tea Treatment

Green tea is a natural antioxidant that will boost hair growth and prevent hair loss. Two bags are brewed in one cup of hot water. When the water has cooled a little, apply it to the scalp. Again, the application massage is part of the treatment. Leave the tea on the scalp for one hour when it can be rinsed off.

Stress Prevention Treatment

Stress is one of the major causes of hair loss. Preventing stress can be combined with other topical treatments to reduce hair loss. People have different ways they reduce the stress in their lives. The method isn’t important, the result is important. Regular exercise is a great stress-reducer. Playing games such as tennis or swimming are good, but simply taking a long walk everyday can help a lot.






Improved Diet Treatment

A healthy diet improves overall health including the health of the hair. Fresh vegetables and fruit, complex carbohydrates and protein are important for strong healthy hair. These nutrients can also be taken in food supplements. The nutrients required are:

• Iron from leafy greens, fish, meat, beans and fortified cereals
• Protein from seafood, white-meat poultry, cheese, yogurt, beans and soy
• Vitamin C from citrus fruits or supplements helps the body absorb iron
• Omega-3 fatty acids from tuna, salmon, walnuts and flaxseed
• Biotin is a B vitamin from bulgur wheat, lentils, soybeans and walnuts
• Zinc from oysters, peanut butter, turkey and pumpkin seeds



Foods to Avoid

• Raw egg white
• Low calorie liquid diets



Take Good Care of the Hair you have

Some hair is genetically destined to fall out, but the process can be slowed if the hair receives good care. Some tips for treating hair well are:

• Avoid frequent hot air drying procedures such as hot brushes, hair straighteners, hair dryers and hot curlers
• Only use hair dye every six to eight weeks and consider not dying it at all
• Hair styles that pull the hair tight can cause significant hair loss
• Layered hair styles reduce the amount of hair even more
