Hair loss is a serious problem that can deeply affect our self-confidence. Although we most often link it to aging, it can happen to us at any point in our lives. It can be caused by stress, hormone-changes, nutritional deficiencies, or even genetics. Don’t worry though, it’s a serious problem with a simple solution. You should note that consistency is necessary for these remedies to work, the general rule is to carry them out 2 to 3 times a week. Here are 5 easy remedies to stop hair loss and boost hair growth, all recommended by your favorite self-care platforms.
Oils, Oils, and More Oils…
Even if your knowledge of skin and haircare is minimal, you probably already know how essential “essential” oils are! For hair loss, the most recommended are peppermint, rosemary, and lavender essential oils.
These oils tend to be heavy so they need to be diluted by adding drops of them to a carrier oil like coconut, grapeseed, or almond oils. Castor oil is one of the most famous remedies that are also useful for eyebrow hair growth as well. Both Amla and Pumpkin-seed oils also have hair-growth benefits. Before adding anything to your hair, always make sure you’re not allergic to it by trying it out on your arm first.
Embrace a Healthier Diet
The food we consume makes all the difference for our wellbeing. So, in this cruel wintry weather, make sure to stay hydrated! Carrots, onions, eggs, chicken, fish, walnuts, and almonds are all foods that will help reduce hair loss and boost hair growth. Also, according to Curly Talks’ Dina Ghalwash, spraying rice water on your hair can have miraculous results for boosting hair-growth.

Integrate Scalp-Massaging in Your Self-Care Routine
Massaging your scalp is not only relaxing, it also invigorates your scalp and improves blood flow, ensuring that your hair gets all the nutrients it needs. It also helps eliminate dandruff and dead skin. You can buy a scalp massager from The Hair Addict’s website or from Souq.
Although all vitamins are good for hair loss and general well-being, the most beneficial one is a B-Vitamin called Biotin. You can find it on iHerb here.
