Natural Ways to Stop Hair Loss

Treat with saw palmetto. Native Americans use saw palmetto to promote healthy hair and skin. Saw palmetto also blocks the production of DHT (a metabolite of testosterone), a contributing factor to enlarging of the prostate. Because DHT production also causes hair loss, saw palmetto has been shown in some small studies to be effective for preventing hair loss in some men.

Take vitamins. Your mother told you they were good for you, but you may not know they’re good for your hair too. Add some extra milligrams of these vitamins to your daily regimen:

  • Vitamin A: Vitamin A is an anti-oxidant which promotes healthy production of sebum in the scalp.
  • Vitamin E: This vitamin stimulates circulation, and good blood circulation in the scalp is important in keeping your hair follicles productive.
  • B vitamins: The B vitamins help your body produce melanin, which gives hair its healthy color. Melanin also stimulates blood circulation.

Use essential oils combined with scalp massage. Massage promotes good circulation in the scalp to keep your hair follicles active. Massage your scalp daily by hand for a couple of minutes. To enhance the massage, use a few drops of lavender or bay essential oil in an almond or sesame oil base on your scalp.

Restore moisture through hot oil treatments. You can use any natural oil including safflower, canola or olive oil.

Try rubbing your scalp with garlic juice, onion juice or ginger juice. Make sure you only use 1 of these juices; don’t mix them together. Leave the juice on your scalp overnight and wash it out in the morning.

Try rubbing your hair with rangoli henna. Use powder that is green in color and that has the texture of talc. Henna seals the cuticle, which strengthens the hair shaft at the root.[2]
Rub green tea into your hair. The tea contains antioxidants, which may prevent hair loss and help hair growth.
