Hair loss is a frustrating experience, right? As most of the hair loss treatments are expensive, you can try some home remedies if you observe unusual hair loss, unless it is a condition which requires medical attention. American Academy of Dermatology (ADD) says, if you are losing more than 50 to 100 hairs per day, it is about time you pay attention. Read on to know 5 DIY hair loss treatments that won’t burn a hole in your pocket.
Bananas to the rescue for hair thinning:
The amino acids present in bananas help in hair retention and growth. Here’s a hair mask that’ll help you strengthen your hair. Try blending bananas and egg yolks and witness immediate results for your thinning hair. In addition to two egg yolks and two ripe bananas, add 2-3 tablespoons of honey, olive oil, a half cup of conditioner, and apply this mixture on your scalp. Rinse it with cool water after 20-30 minutes.
Coconut oil for split ends and breakage:
Coconut oil has been used for centuries because it is enriched with fatty acids that can penetrate inside the hair shaft and retain the proteins in our hair. At night, massage your damp hair with two tablespoons of warm coconut oil and wash your hair with shampoo, the next morning. Do not apply in excess and miss its benefits while washing to remove it. For finer hair, use argan oil, which is rich with fatty acids for the lustre of your hair.
Ginger against dandruff:
It takes a while to escape dandruff once it kicks in! Surprisingly, many people are unaware that dandruff is one of the main causes of hair loss in men. Try using ginger as it has anti-inflammatory properties which can help to soothe the scalp and decrease dandruff. Take ginger root, grate it into 2 cups of water and boil it. After adding a tablespoon of lemon juice and olive oil to it, slowly apply it onto your scalp. Once it dries, wash your hair with shampoo. As an alternative to ginger, you can use aloe vera.
Egg yolks and lemon for brittle hair:
Does the smell of egg yolks, a good source of nourishment for your hair follicles, stop you from using them? If yes, mix lemon with them! Not only does lemon reduce the smell, it also enhances the quality of your hair. To avail the maximum benefit, apply this mixture right from the roots to the ends of your hair and wait for approximately 30-60 minutes before you shampoo your hair.
Onion juice to increase blood flow to your hair follicles:
If you are ready to bear the smell of onion, you are in for a lot of benefits! This sulphur rich vegetable can boost blood flow to your hair follicles and improve circulation. Cut a peeled onion into two-four pieces and massage your scalp with the strained-out juice for around 10-15 minutes. Later, rinse it with warm water and shampoo.
