How to Stop Hair Loss – 28 Simple Remedies to Get Thick Gorgeous Hair

how to stop hair loss and grow hair back

 

I think I have figured out the natural solution for hair loss. My hair is getting thicker, stronger and healthier. I can see plenty of new growth on my scalp.

I have come a long way since I last wrote 17 Things I did to Regrow my Lost Hair. It’s been over two years now and what a learning it has been. (You can read my story here.)

To be honest, there have been times when I would lose a huge amount of hair and also the new growth would just fall out or not grow beyond few centimeters. Those times were heartbreaking, but I didn’t give up. I also realized that the health of hair is interlinked with many factors. And it’s not just the food, yes food is very important, but it’s also your state of mind which plays an important role in the health of your hair.

I have learnt many things along the way, I made mistakes, corrected them, made more mistakes… now I know a lot more on what to do and what not to do for healthy hair.

It wasn’t easy for me. But I want to make it easier for you, so you don’t make the same mistakes that I made.

Therefore, I am sharing with you all my research and remedies that worked for me and also worked for other wonderful people around me.

So sit relaxed and keep pen and paper handy to take down notes. I also encourage you to go through every point as it might just help in some way.

How to Stop Hair Loss: 28 Natural Ways To Grow Your Hair Back

1. Wake Up Your Hair Follicles With Head Massage

Head massage is really important. If you have fine thin hair, then do it gently, very very gently, like you are handling a delicate thread.

If you have never done a hair massage or are scared that you might break more hair, just tap your scalp with your fingers or stroke your hair. Any movement on the scalp is good because like other parts of our body, it is essential you move it or stimulate it. This increases the blood supply to the scalp, bringing more oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicles, promoting healthy hair growth.

So do it at least once a week, if not more. You can do it with or without oil, it’s up to you. Some beneficial oils for head massage are coconut, almond, sesame, olive, and castor. More details on which oils to use see here.

2. The Right Temperature For Washing Hair: Hot, Warm or Cold?

Imagine your hair as delicate fabric, what will happen if you use hot water to wash it. It will fade and loose its shape and lustre – right?

The same principle also applies to your hair. Hot water not just strips your scalp of its natural protective oils; it can do serious damage to your hair roots.

Cold water will not clean the greasy hair well, so opt for lukewarm water, which is the best to wash your hair.

3. Miracle Hair Mask Is A Must Try
Fenugreek hair mask for hair growth

Fenugreek (methi) is an age-old remedy for hair loss and thinning. It provides nourishment to hair as well as stimulates blood flow to the root of the hair. And if you have dry, coarse or frizzy hair, fenugreek can come to your rescue. Regular use of this herb in a hair mask or deep conditioner will naturally soften your hair, increase manageability, and restore lustre and bounce.

Yogurt is equally wonderful for hair. It is full of protein, which works to strengthen the hair shaft, thus preventing split ends and breakage. At the same time, yogurt also conditions, moisturises, and adds volume and shine to your hair.

I absolutely love this Miracle Hair Mask; I encourage you to try it at least once. Here’s how to make miracle hair mask. You can also use fenugreek in a  hair rinse or include them in your diet.

4. Revive Your Hair With An Egg Mask
egg hair mask for hair growth

Egg mask is another great remedy to reduce hair loss instantly. Egg are packed with protein, which works to strengthen the hair shaft as well as make hair shiny and voluminous. Egg also contains natural biotin (which is often touted as the hair growth vitamin), selenium, iodine, pantothenic acid and vitamin B12 – all important for healthy hair growth.

One way to make egg mask is by combining it with green tea. Green tea is loaded with antioxidants which benefit both hair and scalp by preventing hair loss and helping with dandruff and eczema. Green tea also helps to strengthen and soften hair and protects it from sun damage.

Egg and Green tea hair mask

Whisk the egg and then whisk the tea and oil into it. Massage it into your scalp and hair, leave for 15-20 minutes and then rinse well with lukewarm water.

Note: If you have dry hair, use just the egg yolk.

Here’s another way to make egg mask, I use this method for my hair.

5. Coconut Is Tonic For Hair
coconut oil for hair

Due to its unique health and hair benefits, coconut has been an integral part of many Asian cultures.

Regular intake of coconut can transform your hair and I have seen this happen: one of my friends started taking coconut oil and coconut meat in her diet and in one year her hair went from being dull and dry to shiny and gorgeous looking. Coconut oil also supports your immune system and has anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

To reap the benefits, try to eat coconut oil/ coconut meat every day or few times a week. You can also use coconut oil for head massage. It strengthens the hair roots and promotes stronger and healthier new hair growth.

For head massage, you can use a blend of 2 teaspoon coconut oil, 1 teaspoon castor oil and 2-3 drops lavender essential oil.

6. Love Aloe
aleo vera to stop hair loss

In ayurveda, aloe vera is said to be an important remedy for hair fall, dandruff, scalp irritation, and eczema. Besides, many cultures around the world use aloe vera to keep their hair healthy and beautiful.

With tons of vitamins and antioxidants, aloe vera nourishes the hair follicles and stimulates hair growth.

Aloe vera is also renowned for its soothing and cooling properties that relieve redness and irritation.

Besides, aloe vera juice is also a powerful health tonic, it helps with cell rejuvenation and keep you looking and feeling young.

How to use: 

Aloe works beautifully with olive oil. This combination can be used by all hair types, and it will help deep condition your hair and make it soft and smooth. It will also increase volume and thickness of your hair, and may help with hair regrowth.

Mix equal quantities of aloe vera gel and olive oil and massage into your scalp. Let it absorb for an hour before washing it out.

 7. Wood Comb Is Your Friend

comb

I find wood-comb the best for combing hair.  Every time you comb it sort of gives you a mini massage. This helps to increase the blood flow to the scalp- bringing lovely nutrients to the hair roots.

The wood comb may also help with dandruff. If your dandruff is due to dry scalp, regular massage with a wooden comb will normalise the oil production and eliminate dandruff.

You can buy wood comb here or here are some buying suggestions for comb and brushes for different hair types.

8. Don’t Forget To Drink Water

If you desire thick, shiny hair and glowing skin drink 2-3 liters of water every day.

Water helps our body to flush out the toxins and waste, so not only will your body feel better, but your hair will get stronger too. The stronger the hair, the faster it grows.

So drink water!

9. Apply Onion Juice
onion for hair loss

This is an ancient remedy for hair loss. Onions are packed with two amazing ingredients – Sulphur and Quercetin that can help boost hair growth.

Besides, onions are a good source of biotin, flavonoids, manganese, copper, vitamin C, phosphorous, and folic acids – all very important for healthy and shiny hair.

It has been scientifically shown that topical application of onion juice can help with hair loss.  A study published in Journal of dermatology (in 2002) found that just after 6 weeks of using onion juice, 86% individual with alopecia areata experienced hair regrowth.

Here’s how to use onion juice for hair growth.

10. Amla Is Amrit (nectar) For Hair
indian gooseberry to prevent grey hair

In Indian culture, amla is considered as Amrit (nectar) for hair. It has played a key role in long, thick, and beautiful hair of India women.

Amla is one of the richest sources of vitamin C, and also contains an array of antioxidants and plant vitamins.  It is referred to in ayurveda as the best medicine to prevent aging — a promoter of health, longevity and great complexion and great hair.

This tangy berry acts as a natural conditioner, and helps to reduce hair loss and greying, and promote thicker and shinier hair. You can use amla oil for head massage and/or use amla supplements to boost hair growth and overall health.

11. Treat Your Hair Like Precious Threads

I remember one of my flatmates would comb her hair as if she is combing delicate silk threads, with a lot of patience and care. If your hair is already fine and thinning apply this rule every time you’re washing, combing or massaging your hair.

Some people even go to an extent of using a satin or silk pillowcase, so they don’t cause their hair to break or become tangled.

12. Choose Your Shampoo Wisely

Use natural shampoo

You might think shampoo only stays on your hair for few minutes, so what difference will it make. But trust me it makes a hell of a difference. If you love your hair put in an extra effort to find a natural shampoo that works for you.

You can either use a homemade shampoo (such as this) or buy a shampoo that contains natural ingredients. If you are not sure about any ingredient you can either google it or check on this website www.ewg.org.

Here are some ready-made SLS free shampoos that I like:

Argan Oil Shampoo

Andalou Moisture Rich Shampoo

13. Ditch Chemical Treatment

My hair loss problem started after years of ‘over colouring’ my hair. I also get regular emails from men and women saying they did permanent straightening or rebonding and after few days their hair started falling out in large numbers.

Use of harsh chemicals can damage hair follicles and cause hair loss and thinning. They can also cause the scalp to become itchy flaky or aggravate skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis. So as much as possible stay away harsh chemical treatments and opt for natural ways to beautify your hair.

14. Love Your Hair

If you want thick, beautiful hair, send your hair a lot of love. You can practice this when you are head massaging, combing or just before you go to sleep.

Every cell in our body (including hair cell) has its own intelligence and memory. And what you repeat over and over gets stored in its memory. So when someone has a negative relationship with their body or hair, and their thoughts are those of dislike and hatred toward their appearance, it does create a negative reality. As a result, their hair appears dull and sad.

To get positive results you need to change your thinking. So instead of saying ‘I hate my hair’, opt for a more positive thought like “As I take care of my hair, it gets healthier.”

And you will see your hair getting healthier and thicker.

15. Pump In More Oxygen

Pranayam or breathing exercise is a great way to oxygenate and vitalise your body. If you have never done pranayam before start with anulom vilom or alternate nostril breathing. This breathing exercise balances the body systems and makes us calm, relaxed and at the same time focused.

It’s particularly useful if your hair loss is due to hormonal issues or constant stress and worry.

Here’s a video on how to do anulom vilom in Hindi and English

16. Yoga Postures Can Help
halaasna for hair loss

All yoga postures are good, but particularly beneficial for hair are inversion poses such as: head stand, sarvangasana (shoulder stand), halasana (plow pose) and paschimottanasana (seated forward bend).

If you have never done these postures before, I suggest you join a yoga class for a few months and learn various postures under the guidance of your yoga teacher. I have been practising it for many years, and I find it so beneficial for hair and also the entire body.

Here’s a nice video on yoga.

Note: You should not do these posture during your periods or when pregnant. Also, if you have weak bones (osteoporosis), heart condition, spinal problems, or any other medical conditions you should take advice of your doctor.

17. Wear Bangles
bangles for good hair

This is for ladies.

On the outer sides of the wrist are acupressure points for the reproductive organs (uterus, ovaries). Wearing bangles keeps the reproductive system, including ovaries in good health. Ovaries produce estrogen, which has many vital body functions including keeping your skin and hair healthy.

Ovary also produces testosterone, and when the balance of estrogen and testosterone is tipped, it can cause among other symptoms, excess facial and body hair, and a bald patch on the top of the scalp (female pattern baldness).

The ancient Indian culture required young girls and women of all ages to wear bangles. The sages who wrote ayurveda understood the importance of acupressure and made it customary for women (especially married) to wear bangles. And when you think of it now, ancient Indian customs are indeed full of wisdom.

18. Eat Foods Rich In Vitamin C

guava - vitamin C for hair

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and it helps to protect hair from free radicals – which are responsible for hair loss, greying, wrinkles, and other signs of ageing .

Vitamin C also boosts blood circulation, strengthens scalp tissue and improves regeneration of hair cells.

BEST FOODS FOR VITAMIN C: amla, chilli pepper, guava, rosehip, kiwi, lychee, berries, papaya, orange, lime, lemon, pineapple, cauliflower, cabbage, melon, mango, potato, tomato, grape, plum.

19. Magnificent Magnesium

Magnesium is one of the most vital minerals for our body. Yet most of us are lacking it. You can thank increasingly poor diets for this. Also, drinking too much alcohol, taking antacids and antibiotics can deplete our body of magnesium.

Along with hair loss, a magnesium deficiency may cause facial hair (in women), leg cramps, fatigue, bone loss, and hormonal problems.

The first step to healing your symptoms and getting more magnesium in your diet is to start eating magnesium-rich foods.

Good magnesium sources are: pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, spinach, cashews, mung beans, banana, swiss chard, black beans, millet, almonds, flax seeds, sorghum (jowar), peas, kidney beans, papaya, avocado.

Besides eating magnesium rich foods, another way to improve your magnesium level is to take regular epsom salt baths or foot baths. Epsom salt is a magnesium sulfate that can absorb into your body through your skin.

For epsom bath, add about 2 cups epsom salt in your bath water and soak for 20-30 minutes. You can also do a foot soak, simply add 1/3 cup in a bucket of warm water and soak your legs in.

20. More Vitamins For Hair

Vitamin D, iron and B12 are other common culprits for hair loss

Vitamin D not just keeps your bones healthy, it is also important for the health of your hair. This study found that women with hair loss had much lower vitamin D levels compared to normal controls.

The best source of Vitamin D is Sunlight. Try to spend few minutes in the sun daily with forearms, hands or lower legs uncovered. But if you live in countries (USA, Europe, Canada) where there is insufficient sunlight during winters, it is advised to take vitamin D supplements.

Iron deficiency anemia is another common cause of hair loss, especially in women. Try and eat iron rich foods such as green leafy vegetables, beans and lentils, meat, liver, nuts and seeds. Pair it with vitamin C which helps with absorption of iron.

B12 deficiency is usually seen in people who follow a vegan or vegetarian diet. The best food source of B12 is dairy products, egg, fish and meat. But B12 is also said to be found in fermented foods such as yogurt, kefir, homemade pickles, sauerkraut (see why B12 deficiency may cause hair loss)

Note: The only way to detect whether you have a true deficiency is by getting a blood test. You can work together with your doctor to find out the cause and how to treat it.

21. Stress Equal Hair Loss

In today’s time, stress is one of the biggest causes of hair loss, especially in women.

So just relax! And this doesn’t mean you go on a permanent vacation. When you work, study or do your housework – focus on the task at hand, so basically be in the present. Maybe you want to allocate a fixed worry time – say around 15 minutes in the afternoon/evening – and at that time fret as much as possible about everything and anything.

Some good stress busters are: exercise, yoga, meditation, gardening, going for walks, spending time with family and friends, playing music or sports – whatever works for you.

22. Sit In Silence 
meditate for healthy hair

When you don’t get the answers you need, including how to stop hair loss or how to make a million dollar, sit in silence and focus on your breath. In other words, meditate. It’s a piece of advice yogis or sages have given for thousands of years.

In that silent or quiet mind, you are led towards your answer. You will exactly know what to do to improve your hair, health or finances.

You don’t have to join a class to meditate, just sit in a quiet place and focus on your breath going in and out. Here’s more on how to meditate.

23. Avoid These Foods

To improve hair growth, there are few foods you should avoid or reduce.

  • Alcohol and smoking
  • Tea and coffee – if you can’t totally avoid it, limit it two cups a day. Also don’t drink it first thing in the morning, have it after breakfast.
  • Excess sugar – sugar block absorption of vital nutrients. So eat ice creams, biscuits, soft drinks, cakes, candies once in a week or as special treat, not everyday treat.
  • Refined flour – white bread, burger bun, pizza are usually made with refined flour.
  • Fried foods

24. Eat Foods That Are Fresh and Local
fruits and veggies for good hair

I guess everyone knows what to eat and what not to eat, but there are so many temptations that you can easily get carried away. Eating simple home cooked meals is a great way to nourish your hair and skin from the inside out.

Just a general idea on what to eat:

  • Local fruits and vegetables – they are rich in antioxidants which help to stop hair loss
  • Carbohydrates in form of whole grains- wheat, millet, sorghum (jowar), amaranth (rajgira), rice
  • Lentils and Beans – good source of vegetarian protein, iron, zinc, magnesium, B vitamins
  • Healthy fats in form of nuts and seeds
  • Fish – great source of protein and healthy fats
  • Dairy – butter, ghee, milk cheese, paneer
  • Good quality chicken, egg and meat

25. Yogurt Is Fab for Hair

Yogurt contains live healthy bacteria, also known as probiotics.

Without them, we would have a tough time digesting the food as well as absorbing the nutrients. They also boost our immune systems and even help in the manufacturing of vitamins A, K and B complex – which are essential for healthy hair.

Probiotics rich foods include – live yogurt, buttermilk, homemade pickles, chunda, cheese, sauerkraut, khimchi, idli, dosa, kefir. You can also take probiotics supplements, this is my favourite one.

26. Good Fats boost Hair Growth
sesame seeds

Fats are essential for healthy hair and skin.

Sadly, fats have been given a bad reputation. But the truth is fat-free diet is not healthy. We do need fats. But the right types of fats. Because without them we are not able to absorb vitamins A, E, D and K.

Healthy fats help you to avoid dry, scaly scalp, nourish your hair follicles, so your hair grows thick, strong and shiny.

Healthier fats can be found in the fish, nuts (almond, walnut) seeds (sesame, sunflower, pumpkin, flax seeds). Also in butter and unrefined oils such as: coconut, mustard, olive, peanut, hemp and sesame – use these for cooking and drizzling.

27. Eat Ghee (clarified butter) For Beautiful Hair

Ghee is another amazing food for your hair. It is rich in vitamins A, E, D, and Omega 3 fatty acids. Ghee is also said to help balance your hormones naturally – this is particularly useful if your hair loss is due to unbalanced hormones.

You can either make your own ghee or buy it online (It’s best to buy Grass Fed Organic Ghee)

28. Rice Is Nice 
rice is nice for hair

Rice has so many beneficial properties. It contains a unique ingredient called ‘inositol’ which can repair damaged hair, as well as protect it from further damage.

Plus, the amino acids in rice are extremely nourishing for the hair follicles and help to improve hair growth and keep hair shiny and moisturised.

How to use: You can eat rice and/or use its water as a hair rinse.

Rice with ghee and lentil (dal chawal) tastes delicious.

———————————————————————————————————————

In the end, I would say Be Happy, and there are good chances that your hair will grow back.

Trust the process.

Trust me.

But most importantly, trust yourself.

You can do it!

If it is taking time don’t get stressed, don’t be disheartened, as it will not help you in any which way. It will only cause more stress and sorrow.

Life is not about external beauty, we have a bigger purpose to serve in this world. Each one of us is born with unique talents and only we can accomplish that. So focus on that and move on, if the hair has to grow it will and if not then that’s fine as well.

And as they say ‘let go and let god’ (takeover).

Live, love, & be happy.

Sending you lots of love and good wishes

Minaz

Hello Ma’am. I’ve been suffering from Hypothyroidism since I was 17. I am 23 now. I used to have thick, silky, straight hair. Now my hair are so less that I can’t even braid them. And the texture is rough, they have become naturally curly(not even good curls which I can carry off without using any heating ). My thyroid medication hasn’t stopped the hair fall. Also I had shifted to India 5 years back and the water was hard, I had a poor diet and was alwayd stressed. So it all just added to hair misery. Whatever I do to my hair, there is hair fall. Now even though it has reduced. Nothings seems to work to grow back my lost hair. Is there any solution for people like me, who have hormonal issues?

    Best wishes, and I hope you get your thick, silky hair back.

    i would really like to know why it works and if it’s okay to use it all the time. But I cannot find that on the web.
    By the way, I am from Holland, so i hope my English isn’t too bad…

Minaz, thank you very much for your wonderful blog and wealth of information. I am a 65 years old women who has halted my hair loss more or less by focusing on natural hair care and diet. I have even had some considerable regrowth at my hairline which had been my biggest worry. My question to you has to do with the two sides of my head growing back quick differently. My left side is full but my right side is noticeably thinner and more gray. Is this something you’ve seen before? Should I focus more of my energies (massage, mask etc) on the right side? I would like to do all I can to even out the two sides as much as possible. Thank you in advance.

    Minaz @hairbuddha says December 19, 2016

    Yes pain and stress in the jaw and around head can cause the uneven greying/thinning.
    Practice relaxation techniques – look at no 14, 19 and 20.
    When you are under pressure put a habit to check your jaw, try to keep it relaxed.
    Do you clench at night?

    Reply
    Maria says December 19, 2016

    I don’t believe I clench at night. I will follow your suggestions for relaxation (which will have benefits beyond hair too, I’m sure). It makes intuitive sense to me that the uneven graying /thinning is tension related. I also feel I want to direct lots loving/positive attention towards that side. Thank you again, it means a lot to me that you have responded and given me and others so much invaluable info and hope.

Hi,i am new here! I am 27. I have acute hair problem suffering from years. I have sticky dandruff,flakes come out of my scalp,scalp gets oily next day of shampoo but hair shaft is being dry. Hair is being dull,thin. New hair growth is almost nil whatever grow falls easily due to weak hair shaft. Gone through so many doctors n trichologists but no use. I have iron deficiency and i am anemic. Going through your post and i am feeling positive. can you suggest a hair regime to get my hair back ? one question about above post i took green tea every day on empty stomach with biscuits. Should i stop this?

    Hi,
    Hope you are taking measures to correct iron deficiency, diet/supplements.
    Do a weekly Miracle Hair Mask, it will help with your dandruff as well as hair growth.
    I generally eat a fruit first thing in the morning. You can have green tea along with breakfast or snack.

    Wheatgrass, blackstrap molasses, beans, lentils, leafy greens, meat are all good sources of iron. You can take help of nutritionist to work out a diet plan.
    You can headmassage without oil.

Dear one thing i want to share, unless we stop taking tension, and stop eating junk food these natural remedies won’t work. I mean a person must be happy, stress free, eat lots leafy veggies take care internally and then externally. It’s my opinion. love
