5 Tips to Stop Hair Loss and Regrow Hair Naturally

 Introduction

Is your hair thinning and falling out? If so, you’re not alone, as many women struggle with hair loss and thinning hair daily. While stress or health issues can be the primary cause of balding, many women who experience hair loss don’t realize that their lifestyle habits may be causing it as well.

Here are 5 tips to stop hair loss and regrow hair naturally from Philip Kingsley Trichologist Dr. Georgina Phillips, so you can get your beautiful locks back in no time.

5 Tips to Stop Hair Loss and Regrow Hair Naturally

1- Add Fish Oil to your Diet

A diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acids can help you maintain healthy hair, skin, and nails. Research has also shown that a diet high in Omega-3s can protect against hair loss. 

If you don’t regularly consume fish, consider adding fish oil supplements to your diet, fish oils work by preventing DHT from binding with receptors on your follicles, thus reducing hair loss and increasing the growth of new hair.

Since it takes around eight weeks for results to kick in, be patient! Add 1-2g of fish oil per day if you’re interested in boosting your Omega 3 intake.

2- Eat more Eggs

Eggs contain a wealth of nutrients and are one of nature’s best sources of protein, which is why athletes love them so much. Protein helps build muscle, and that helps with hair growth.

Eggs also contain high amounts of Vitamin D, which is crucial for keeping your scalp healthy; Vitamin D promotes healthy hair growth by increasing blood flow to your follicles, they also have zinc, iron, vitamin B-12, and more in them, all things that help support your hair health.

Now don’t forget those yolks! The eggs themselves are not going to save you from baldness, it’s what’s inside them that does the trick.

 

3- Take Vitamins & Supplements

Hair loss can be caused by several factors, ranging from harsh styling products or environmental influences. If you’re experiencing hair loss, it’s important to take extra care of your hair and scalp.

This includes eating a healthy diet (full of vitamin-rich foods) as well as taking vitamins and supplements that support good health. While there aren’t any known hair vitamins, eating healthier will generally support your skin, nails, and hair, all of which are connected. 

In addition to eating a balanced diet, try taking fish oil supplements for their omega-3 fatty acids, biotin for strong hair growth, and vitamin C for its antioxidant properties.

These supplements all promote overall health, but also play an important role in hair growth. When it comes to specific nutrients for healthy hair, make sure you’re getting enough protein (and avoiding too much sugar), iron, zinc, and silica.

As far as other supplements go, collagen is known to help with thinning hair while green tea extract has been shown to promote healthy follicles.

You can also try natural remedies like castor oil packs on your head at night or apple cider vinegar rinses before shampooing.

However, if you choose to approach hair loss prevention and regrowth, know that these issues don't need to be permanent if you treat them early on.

4- Try Essential Oils

Certain essential oils, like tea tree oil, peppermint oil, geranium oil, and rosemary oil are known for their hair-regrowth properties. Add a few drops of these oils to your shampoo and conditioner or use them in a warm compress applied to your scalp before you wash your hair.

Studies on some of these essential oils’ effects on hair growth are limited, but one study did show promising results when an all-natural shampoo with tea tree oil was used.

Another option is trying over-the-counter minoxidil or vitamin regimens, these have been proven effective by many studies, but they just might not work as quickly as you want them to.

In addition to using oils, it's also important to avoid harsh shampoos that can strip your scalp of its natural moisture and hair follicles of their nutrients. Instead, try using gentle products that won't damage or irritate your skin and leave it hydrated and healthy, there are tons of gentle options out there so be sure to look around until you find something that works for you. 

You can also try rinsing out chlorine from swimming pools and using styling tools like flat irons less often if they're contributing to thinning hair. One last tip: Some research suggests eating more iron-rich foods could help stimulate blood flow throughout your body, including your scalp.

 

5- Use Coconut Oil, Aloe Vera, and Essential Oils in your Routine

Coconut oil has been linked with hair regrowth for a long time, thanks to its high levels of lauric acid, which is known for its antibacterial and antifungal properties.

The key is using it in your daily routine: Start by shampooing with coconut-oil shampoo or deep conditioning your hair after you wash it, then use a heat protectant when you style.

Aloe vera may also help, you can apply it directly to your scalp or even massage it into your hair a few times a week. And don’t forget essential oils like rosemary, peppermint, argan, and jojoba; these plant-based essential oils have all been linked with increased hair growth when used topically on areas of thinning or balding.

Just remember that everyone's hair reacts differently to certain ingredients, so if one of these natural remedies doesn't work for you, try another. 

But above all else, exercise regularly, not only will exercise increase blood flow throughout your body (including your scalp), but regular exercise can reduce stress hormones in our bodies (like cortisol) that contribute to unhealthy hair loss and slow down hair growth. 

Make sure you're eating right too, because what we eat impacts how our bodies react as well as how healthy our bodies are overall.

Conclusion

Eat a healthy diet that is rich in protein, B vitamins, zinc, selenium, iron, and biotin. Avoid foods that contain chemicals or stress hormones like fluoride.

If you are experiencing hair loss it’s important to visit your doctor because there may be underlying issues such as anemia or other health problems causing your hair loss.

Finally, implement these natural treatments for hair loss with regular use (4-6 weeks) to get the most dramatic results.
