8 Best Ways to Regrow Your Hair Naturally

Hair Fall

Hair fall is a natural process and almost everyone sheds hair on a daily basis. However, ‘hair loss’ happens when new hairs don’t replace the lost hairs or you begin shedding more hair than usual. Anyway, the good news is, yes! You can regrow hair.

To regrow the lost hair, you should also need to know the cause of the excess hair fall or the reason why the new hair is not growing. Basically, how to cure hair loss depends on what is causing it. Treating the cause will cure your hair loss. There are many causes, from vitamin deficiencies to hormone changes, stress, and lack of sleep, smoking, thyroid problems, and menopause as well.

How to regrow hair naturally?

Without indulging you in intense details, here are some of the ways that might help in hair regrowth.

Head Massage

Head massage is one of the most important rituals for attaining healthy hair and scalp. It improves blood circulation and drains away toxins from the scalp. You can head massage without using any oil, but the most preferred way of doing it is with oil. The best oils for hair are coconut, sesame, almond, olive and castor (diluted with another oil). For healthier and stronger, head massage at least once a week.

Fingernails Rubbing

Rubbing your fingernails briskly against each other, for about 10 minutes every day stimulates hair growth and makes your hair healthy and strong. This is an ancient technique and works similar to reflexology – through energy channels. The positive results are supported by many anecdotal claims, and there are many proponents and followers of this ancient practice. Some have even claimed hair regrowth on bald areas.

Eat Flaxseeds

Flaxseeds are loaded with omega-3, copper, selenium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, B vitamins, and amino acids – these nutrients are important for healthy hair growth and strength.

Exercise

As always, exercising is also important to healthy hair. When you exercise you sweat and that unclogs the hair follicles – that gets clogged by dead skin and grease – giving enough space for the new hair to grow. Exercising also increases blood flow to your scalp. The increased blood flow brings with it more nutrients and more oxygen, and thereby promoting healthy hair growth

Amla

In Indian cultures, Amla is considered as a hair tonic. It is an antioxidant with a high content of vitamin C, minerals, amino acids, flavonoid, and tannins. Eating fresh or dried amla is purported to stop hair loss, reverse graying, and promote stronger and healthier growth.

Protein and Iron

As we know hair is mainly composed of protein, and lack of protein will slow the hair growth, and can even cause hair loss. Iron is another important nutrient for healthy hair growth. It transports oxygen to our cells, which also includes hair cells. And too little oxygen affects the hair growth. So make sure that you’re eating enough protein and iron in your diet.

Herbal Rinse

Herbal hair rinse is a great way to nourish and condition your hair. After shampooing, you can apply a hair rinse, and let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing it off with plain water. I would suggest orange and lemon rinse. It needs no preparation and is extremely simple and easy to make. Plus, you will also notice less shedding. Best herbs to make a hair rinse are chamomile rosemary, marigold, lavender, fenugreek (methi), lemon, amla, orange, sage, and mint.

Don’t Stress Yourself

Hair fall also takes place when you take much stress. Thus, avoiding stress would really help reduce the hair fall. Moreover, being happy and stress-free would more likely make your hair healthier and will impact the growth of the hair as well.
