One usually loses a bit more hair in autumn and spring than during the rest of the year. If you keep having this problem for longer, you should definitely visit a doctor and have some tests run. You might suffer from thyroid problems, or be anaemic. If the test results turn out to be OK, you can totally check out my home hair loss remedies! 😉
Visit the nearest grocery store and get… yeasts. A small bar – it can usually be found somewhere near dairy products. A real vitamin bomb guaranteed! Yeasts contain vitamin B, copper, potassium, selenium, iron, iodine, sodium and many more. They’re great for the skin and can totally stop you from craving for sweets (they might also work on jelly, which I’m a great fan of ;)) and, above all, they prevent hair loss. After a month’s treatment they make so called “baby hair” grow. Preparing a yeast drink is totally simple – just take a spoon of yeast, place it in a glass, add some boiling water and stir until it dilutes. The taste isn’t great, but it’s not a total tragedy. If you lose motivation, just imagine those great buns and plaits you’ll be able to wear! 😉
If you’ve been sick for a long time or have a tendency for anaemia, nettle may turn out to be your best friend! It works similar to iron, boosting red blood cells production. It can also be massaged into the skin of your head (just pour it on your hair and gently massage it into the scalp). It boosts blood circulation and helps fight dandruff. The second herb that does wonders is Field Horsetail. You probably know the name as it’s a popular ingredient of many OTC pills. It contains a lot of silica, which is crucial when it comes to hair and nail rebuilding. Drinking a glass of Field Horsetail instead of tea a day is enough.
BLACK RADISH SYRUP
Black radish is a common ingredient of shampoos, conditioners, and other hair cosmetics. It works best when you apply 100% juice (like this one) directly on your hair. It doesn’t smell great, but you should totally go for it, as it makes your hair stronger literally overnight. If you want to achieve a better outcome, you can also drink a spoon of the juice a day. Why does it work so great? Not to go too deep – it’s antibacterial, has antifungal properties and prevents dandruff. It supports the liver and kidneys. Vitamins and minerals it contains (C, B1, B2, PP and mineral salts – mainly potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium, sulfur and phosphorus) are only the icing on the cake 😉 Add it to your meal as often as you can 😉
Eggs are totally crucial in our everyday diet (I’ll tell you more about it later), but they also do wonders applied on the hair. They give you the perfect shine, moisturizing, and smoothness. The yolk can be added to your favorite conditioner or applied directly on the hair. Make sure not to put any white on your hair, as when you treat it with hot water, you might end up with scrambled eggs on your head 😀 By the way, if we’re talking about water, apple cider vinegar is also a great conditioner. Get a small spray bottle, pour some water and apple cider vinegar inside (50:50) and spray the mixture over wet hair. The scent will evaporate when the hair will dry, and it will stay perfectly moisturized and smooth 😉
A BALANCED DIET
You’ll read more about a balanced diet and necessary vitamins and minerals in this article. Today I’m only going to remind you what is best for your hair. Above all, vitamin A – retinol. When you don’t have enough of it in your system, the hair is weak, and breaks very fast. Retinol can be found in green vegetables, eggs, tomatoes, butter, and fatty meat. There’s also vitamin B, which is also important – see #1 – yeast 😉 If you totally can’t force yourself to drink yeast, vitamin B can also be found in broccoli, mushroom, bananas, and sunflower seeds. It’s nice to combine products rich in vitamin B with those rich in vitamin E – almonds, wheat, and soya oil. Vitamin H, also known as biotin is also crucial. It can be found in nuts, spinach, sardines, tomatoes and carrots. They’re of course only the basic products that our hair needs. Remember to diversify your diet. Try to get as much unmodified food as possible. Instead of a ready made strawberry yoghurt, add some natural strawberries to a regular one; make sure that the eggs you eat are always of best quality. Avoid palm oil, glucose syrup, aspartame (E951), glutamine. Such small decisions have a great influence not only on your hair, but also on your whole body and general wellbeing 😉
