Wondering how to regrow hair naturally at home? Check out these proven techniques for regrowing hair naturally at home. You're not alone! Millions of men and women throughout the world suffer some form of hair loss, and most of them would probably prefer to stop going bald if given the choice.
If you're starting to lose your hair, or even if you're completely bald, you've probably given at least a little thought to hair loss remedies. From old-wives-tales to pharmaceutical products like Propecia and Rogaine, the world is full of hair loss solutions; some seem to work, while others are just plain, well, silly.
Sadly even with all the medical breakthroughs that science has provided us, researchers still don't have a "magic pill" that completely reverses hair loss and makes brand new hair grow out of bald spots. They're getting closer all the time - for instance, stem cell hair regrowth technology is getting closer to reality, but is still years or even decades away from widespread use - but as it stands today, you really don't have any guaranteed medical cures for your hair loss.
So if you don't have any proven medical treatment options, how can you stop hair loss?
It's simple: Go natural.
No, I don't mean that you should run around naked, stop taking showers and move into a giant tree. But what I am suggesting is that you consider some natural solutions to regrow hair. They are cheap - much cheaper than medical remedies - and can be done at home. And best of all, they won't mess with your internal body chemistry the way modern medicine does. Heck, they'll probably make you an overall healthier person; so even if you don't get the results you want on your head, at least you'll walk away with increased overall health.
With that in mind, let's get down to business:
Stop Stressing - Your Hair Might Grow Back
Not all hair loss is caused by Androgenetic Alopecia, commonly known as genetic "pattern baldness." Even though male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness does account for a very large percentage of hair loss, it's not the only culprit.
Stress can play a huge role in your hair growth cycle. If you've been taxing your mind and/or body awful hard recently, learn to relax. Scientists have established a connection between high stress levels and losing hair, so taking it easy and shutting your mind off for a while might do some good. Besides, we could all use an excuse to escape the daily grind, right?
Even if you don't consider yourself "stressed out," taking a little edge off of life might do wonders for your hairline. Many people don't realize how much stress they're under until they get out from underneath it. And others simply can't handle very much stress at all, meaning even the slightest agitator could have big consequences.
How can you de-stress? That's a difficult one to answer without knowing your individual situation. For many people, simply spending an hour in a hot bath with the phone turned off might do the trick. Others might not benefit from anything short of an emotional counseling session. Either way, the following could never hurt:
- Get more sleep
- Use some aromatherapy candles
- Say "No" to increased projects
- Put your feet up every chance you get
Eat Healthier - Your Diet Might Be Causing Your Hair Loss
Remember the old express: "You are what you eat?" Well what would that say about a society of consumers who eat chemically-processed foods at every meal, and choose greasy fast food several times per week?
It couldn't say anything good, that's for sure.
It's a widely-known fact that almost all commercially prepared food is soaked in nasty chemicals during the processing and packaging processes. Big food companies say these chemicals (such as formaldehyde) are necessary to make the food last longer in the freezer or on the shelf, and they also say that these chemicals are perfectly safe for human consumption.
But there's a big difference between "safe for human consumption" and "safe for long-term health."
Since our bodies are regulated by a variety of chemicals, it's hard to discount the idea that some of these food additives interfere with our natural mechanisms. And since scientists believe that the hormone DHT is responsible for pattern baldness, and that DHT is a derived from testosterone, the possibility certainly exists that ingested unnatural chemicals can play a role in losing hair.
Not to mention that almost all commercial meat comes from animals that were treated with artificial growth hormones. And guess what these hormones are? You got it, they're testosterone-based.
Needless to say, eating a healthier diet might help you regrow hair. Here are some simple dietary suggestions that might cure your baldness:
- Eat more fruits and vegetables
- Drink more water
- Choose "organic" produce
- Don't eat meat treated with growth hormones (like rBGH)
- Stay away from fast foods and other fried stuff
- Avoid High Fructose Corn Syrup and other unnatural sweeteners
Above all else, use your gut instinct. If you're having a hard time convincing yourself that you're eating something healthy, it probably isn't.
Massage Your Scalp And Regrow Hair
Massaging your scalp increases blood flow and could actually help kick start some stubborn hair follicles. This is one of my personal favorite baldness remedies, partly because I'm convinced there's some truth to it, and partly because, well, it feels really, really good. It's particularly nice when you can convince someone else to do the rubbing!
That's what I call a "Tag Team Cure For Baldness."
If you'd prefer a mechanical massage, several manufacturers produce vibrating massagers specifically for the head. The fast vibrating action might get even more blood flowing to your hair loss areas.
Why is blood flow helpful for regrowing hair? Well, not only does a steady blood supply provide hair follicles the nutrients they need to grow hair, it also carries away toxins.
Just because you're losing your hair (or have already lost it all) doesn't mean you have to take it sitting down. But it also doesn't mean you need to run out and spend thousands of dollars on expensive hair restoration surgeries or hair loss medications. Just a few simple lifestyle changes could be exactly what you need to regrow hair naturally at home.
