The day you look in the mirror and realize your hair just isn’t as thick and full as it used to be can be a scary day. Suddenly all these emotions overcome you and all you can think about is how to get your hair back. Instead of scouring the web for hours, look no further than here. Below, I will tell you how to regrow hair naturally using 4 tricks that take less than 30 minutes a day. Taking the natural route can save you tons of money and time and get you back to feeling like your old self in no time.
Diet & Exercise
The culprit behind your thinning hair could be your own lifestyle. Sure, you could chalk it up to age, or genetics, but changing your diet and exercise regime can greatly help your chances of regrowing your hair. When it comes to your diet, make sure you are getting plenty of protein and omega 3 fatty acid. Good sources of these would be red meat, fish, legumes, nuts, and leafy greens. These foods will provide your body with the building blocks necessary to grow hair. Also, make sure you are exercising at least three times a week. The type of exercise does not really matter, just stay active. Exercising will promote blood circulation throughout your body, and increased blood flow to your scalp will help regrow your hair.
Another way to regrow hair naturally is to take vitamins and supplements. Omega 3 is a great supplement to take if you are not getting enough in your day to day diet. Another really popular supplement is biotin. Biotin is a crucial component of hair growth, and if you are lacking biotin in your diet, which many people are, supplements can be a great alternative.
There are several natural oils out there to help regrow your hair and keep it healthy. One of the most popular oils for hair growth is rosemary oil. Rosemary oil boosts hair growth by improving cellular metabolism. The most effective way of using the oil is to apply directly to your scalp and massage it in. other popular oil options include coconut, jojoba, oil, and argon. There are tons of recipes for hair masks. However, my favorite one is one I have pieced together from various recipes. Combine even parts rosemary oil, jojoba oil, vitamin E oil, and olive or coconut oil. Mix the oils together well and then apply to your scalp. Let it sit in your scalp for at least an hour, or overnight if possible. After letting it sit, rinse it out using an herbal shampoo. Repeat this process at least a couple times a week and you should start seeing results in about a month or two.
There are just as many, probably even more, herbs to promote hair growth as there are oils. I was really amazed when I learned the sheer number of herbs that could help me regrow my hair, and most of them are ones I already had in my kitchen. Some herbs that you may already have, such as cayenne pepper, green tea, black pepper, and garlic can be added to pretty much any hair mask recipe to help regrow your hair. Or you can simply add a little bit of your oil of choice and create a paste, and then apply the paste to your head.
The herbs I had the most success with, I found while reading about Ayurvedic techniques to regrow hair. Ayurveda is a traditional system of Hindu medicine, focused on balance and equilibrium in the body. These herbs are a little more exotic and probably aren’t at your local supermarket, but they are well worth searching for. The Ayurvedic herbs I recommend are Amla, Bhringraj, Shikakai, Neem, Ashwagandha, Fenugreek, and Ritha. You can typically use these the same way as you use the other herbs. You can either infuse your oil of choice with them or create a paste using them. You can infuse your oil by heating the oil over medium heat, adding the herbs, and then letting the oil sit on low heat for a few hours.
Alternatively, by adding just enough water to the herbs to make a thick paste, you can save lots of time. Regardless of which way you choose, once you have your oil or paste ready, apply it directly to your scalp and let it sit for a few hours. Rinse it off with a mild shampoo and repeat two to four times per week.
Final Thoughts on How to Regrow Hair Naturally
In the end, by using a combination of the methods I have laid out, you should see results fairly quickly. Feel free to tweak the recipes and methods provided to better suit your needs. For example, if you already eat lots of fish, you probably don’t need to be taking omega 3 supplements. Hair regrowth is a process, and lots of times it is a matter of trial and error, so be patient. The one thing you definitely don’t want to do is stress about it, which I know can be hard. But stress can make hair fall worse, so try to keep your stress levels low. I have had great success using these methods, and hopefully, you will too.
