Nature Knows Best: Simple Remedies for Balding
We consistently try to get the word out that nature really does know best. We humans simply try to emulate in the hope of improving on its blessings. But the reality is that we need look no further than traditional and tested remedies which also prevent side-effects and new malaises from the synthetics we now consume. Look at these tried and true approaches to loss of hair and see how you can avoid those terrible side-effects from hair-loss drugs. These are natural remedies that should help, but even if they do not, they certainly won't do any harm.
Several home remedies have been found useful in the prevention and treatment of the loss of the hair. The most effective among these remedies is a vigorous rubbing of the scalp with fingers after washing the hair with cold water. The scalp should be rubbed vigorously till it starts to tingle with the heat. It will activate the sebaceous glands and energise the circulation of blood in the affected area, making the hair grow healthier.
There are dietary choices that can help. Lettuce is useful in preventing hair loss through deficiencies. A mixture of lettuce and spinach juice (drunk every day) is said to help the growth of hair. The juice of alfalfa in combination with carrot and lettuce juice taken daily also helps the growth of hair to a remarkable extent. The combination of these juices is rich in elements which are particularly useful for the growth of hair.
Daily application of refined coconut oil mixed with water and lime juice on the hair prevents loss of hair and also lengthens them. Application of the coriander (cilantro) leaves on the head is also considered beneficial. Amaranth, known as chaulai-ka-saag in the vernacular, is another valuable remedy. Application of its fresh leaf-juice helps the growth of the hair and keeps them soft.
Mustard oil, boiled with henna leaves, is useful in healthy growth of hair. About 250 grams of mustard oil should be boiled in tinned basin. A little quantity of henna leaves should be gradually put in this oil till about 60 grams of these leaves are thus burnt in the oil. The oil should then be filtered through a cloth and stored well in a bottle. A regular massage of the head with this oil will produce abundant hair.
Certain home remedies have also been found useful in case of patchy loss of hair. The seeds of lime and black pepper seeds, ground to get a fine paste, is one of the valuable remedies. This paste applied on the patches has mildly irritant action. This increases blood circulation in the affected area and stimulates hair growth. The paste should be applied twice a day for a few weeks.
Another useful remedy for patchy loss of hair is the paste of licorice made by grinding the pieces in milk with a pinch of saffron. This paste should be applied over the bald patches in the night before going to bed.
