How To Avoid Hair Loss And Manage It With Natural Home Remedies


The braids, often known as the ‘crowning glory,’ directly represent a person’s personality and style. Extreme hair loss may be a bothersome issue, generating stress and lowering 

self-esteem, particularly in women. But, if correctly identified, you may manage hair loss using natural and efficient home treatments.

Causes of Hair Loss

Nutritional deficienciesIt is conceivable that vital minerals such as iron, copper, zinc, and proteins are lacking in your diet. Another reason for hair loss is a vitamin D deficiency. To prevent this, try to go out and enjoy some sunshine.

1. Hormonal Imbalance

Women over 30 may have hormonal imbalances that result in hair loss. This is mainly caused by an excess of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). While estrogen is the primary hormone produced by women, testosterone and other androgens, such as DHEA, are also present in the female body. When women become older, they may start converting these androgens to DHT.

2. Thyroid issues

If the thyroid gland in the front of the neck produces too much or too little thyroid hormone, the hair growth cycle may vary. If you have a thyroid problem, you may notice additional symptoms such as weight increase or loss, sensitivity to cold or heat, and changes in heart rate and hair loss.

3. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

Women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) have a hormonal imbalance that results in more significant amounts of androgens than usual. This often causes hair to grow on the face and body as the hair on the head thins. PCOS may also cause ovulation issues, acne, and weight gain.

4. Stress

Severe stress may result in abrupt hair loss that might linger for months. Reduce your odds of having hair loss by reducing stress via exercise, meditation, yoga, and massages.

How to Prevent Hair Loss

1. Regular Trims

Hair is most damaged towards the tips, and a decent cut every six to eight weeks will help alleviate your problems. Damaged hair has a straw-like texture and may be trimmed to encourage growth and eliminate broken ends.

2. Stress

Stress is a core cause of many health issues, including hair loss. It may also interfere with hair development and cause premature greying. Daily meditation and yoga practice may be beneficial in relieving stress.

3. Avoid Taking Hot Showers

Hot showers, as soothing as they are, dehydrate strands and deplete the scalp of natural oils, resulting in dry, brittle hair that is more prone to breakage. Instead, use lukewarm water and rinse your hair at the coldest temperature possible.

4. Combing Wet Hair

When moist, our strands become more delicate and prone to breaking. As a result, it’s essential to use a wide-toothed comb or let them air-dry before style.

5. Wearing Tight Hairstyles

Pulling your hair too tightly from the roots damages it and should be avoided. It’s also a good idea not to tie your hair up too tightly when sleeping.

Tips For Controlling Hair Fall

1. Shampoo

It is essential to understand your scalp type and choose the appropriate shampoo. You should also wash your hair according to your scalp. For example, over-washing hair with a dry scalp may cause hair loss, as you can not clean greasy locks three times a week.

Also, ensure that the shampoo is free of chemicals such as sulfate, paraben, and silicone, which may leave your hair brittle and prone to breaking.

2. Conditioner

A quality conditioner may do wonders for your hair. It includes amino acids that assist in healing damaged hair and keep it silky.

3. Diet and Exercise

You must provide your hair with enough nutrition, notably protein, and iron. Nevertheless, in addition to having a balanced diet, ensure you exercise. Yoga and meditation may help reduce hair loss.

4. Chemical Treatments

Hair treatments such as straightening, perming, and coloring are unsuitable for your hair. Also, avoid using blow dryers and curling irons, particularly on damp hair, since they boil the water in your hair shaft, making it brittle.

If you must use a blow dryer, utilize the lowest heat setting. If you will use additional heat-generating products on your hair, start with a strengthening leave-in conditioner and conclude with a protective spray.

5. Oiling

Oiling stimulates blood circulation and feeds the roots. Make it a habit to massage your hair using a scalp-friendly oil once a week. After two hours, cover it with a shower cap and wash it off with a light shampoo.

6. Too many styling products

Utilizing too many chemically loaded hair products might be hazardous in the long term. It’s recommended to avoid them and instead attempts natural DIY recipes.

Essential Oils that Reduce Hair Fall

1. Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender is thought to promote hair development. It has characteristics that aid in cell formation and stress reduction. Researchers have discovered that it also promotes hair growth. It also possesses antiseptic and antibacterial attributes, which assist in improving the condition of your scalp.

To use this oil, combine three spoons of lavender oil with three scoops of carrier oil, such as olive or heated coconut oil, and apply them straight to your scalp. Let it sit and absorb into your hair for 10 minutes before shampooing. This procedure may be repeated multiple times each week.

2. Peppermint Essential Oil

Studies have shown peppermint oil to improve the number of follicles, follicle depth, and total hair growth. It also aids in hair development throughout the growing period.

2 drops of peppermint essential oil should be combined with your preferred carrier. Massage your scalp for 5 minutes (this also serves as a stress reliever) before thoroughly washing your hair with shampoo and conditioner.

3. Rosemary Essential Oil

Aside from hair development, rosemary hair oil is an excellent solution for hair thickness. It can enhance cellular generation and functions similarly to minoxidil while having fewer adverse effects.

The procedure for applying rosemary oil to your scalp is the same as for using lavender oil.

Natural Treatments for Hair Loss

  3. Put a shower cover over your head to prevent the paste from drying.
  4. After an hour, rinse it with plain water.

Diet For Healthy Hair

Although treatments and shampoos may help maintain healthy hair, a nutritious diet is a key to thick, lustrous, and strong locks.


The primary reason for hair loss is iron deficiency. Spinach is high in iron and vitamins A, C, and protein. It also includes sebum, a natural conditioner for hair, and omega-3 acid, magnesium, potassium, and calcium. They aid in the maintenance of a healthy scalp and beautiful hair.


Carrots, known to be healthy for the eyes, contain Vitamin A, promoting hair development. A lack of vitamin A may cause a dry, itchy scalp. Carrots are known to increase hair thickness, make hair shiny, enhance blood circulation, strengthen hair, protect hair from external stresses such as pollution, and help reduce hair breakage and fall.


Since hair is made up of 68 percent keratin protein, eggs aid in the repair of damaged hair. They are also high in biotin, a B vitamin that promotes hair growth.


Oats are high in fiber, zinc, iron, omega-6 fatty acids, and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), promoting hair development and making it thick and healthy.


Walnuts are high in biotin, B vitamins (B1, B6, and B9), Vitamin E, protein, and magnesium, which all help to build hair cuticles and nourish the scalp. It helps to protect your cells from DNA damage caused by sun exposure.


Lentils are high in protein, iron, zinc, and biotin. They are also high in folic acid, vital for repairing red blood cells’ health, which delivers oxygen to the skin and scalp.


Lean foods, such as chicken or turkey, are vital in protein, which helps to strengthen brittle hair and prevent breakage.

Strawberries and Guavas

Strawberries have a high silica content. A trace mineral called silica is necessary for hair strength and development. Rice, oats, onion, cabbage, cucumber, and cauliflower are also high in silica. Vitamin C also helps to keep your hair from getting brittle and breaking. Although oranges are often thought to be the finest source of vitamin C, one guava has four to five times as much.


Yogurt contains vitamins B5 and D, proven to support hair follicle health.

Sweet Potatoes

Beta carotene prevents dry, lifeless hair and encourages the glands in your scalp to produce an oily fluid known as sebum. Orange fruits and vegetables, such as carrots, pumpkin, cantaloupe, mangoes, and sweet potatoes, are high in this.

Exercises And Yoga For Hair Growth


Try these exercises to improve your hair growth organically.

Jogging: We often overlook the pores on our scalp. Running causes a lot of sweat, which is excellent for hair growth.

Neck Exercises: Neck exercises are the most effective strategies to promote hair growth.

Side To Side Hops: Side-to-side hops help with hair development and keep your cardiovascular health in check.


The following list of yoga positions promote hair growth:

  • Adho Mukha Svanasana (Kapalbhati Adho Mukha Svanasana)
  • Sarvangasana\sBalasana
  • Sirsasana \sVajrasana \sUttanasana \sMatsyasana

This OTC drug is available in liquid, foam, and shampoo versions. Use the cream on your scalp once daily for ladies and twice daily for males for the most outstanding results. Most people prefer foam, which may be applied to damp hair.

Minoxidil products can promote hair growth or delay the rate of hair loss – or both. It requires at least six months of therapy to begin regrowth or to prevent further hair loss. The person also 

determines the time frame. One of the possible side effects is scalp inflammation.

Prescription Spironolactone Pills

This medication, also known as Aldactone, acts to cure hair loss by treating hormones. It binds to androgen receptors and reduces the body’s testosterone processing. You should consult with a doctor or pharmacist about the potential advantages and hazards of spironolactone.

Light And Laser Therapy

Laser devices may encourage hair growth in persons suffering from androgenic alopecia and pattern baldness. Alternative names for laser treatments include:

  • Therapy using red light
  • The cold laser
