No one would love to go bald. Not everyone showing signs of baldness can afford expensive procedures and products for it. Luckily, there is no need to stress over baldness — which can worsen everything — as there are plenty of home remedies for it. Some of the best and boldest of them are actually the simplest.
How you can combat baldness without spending a lot:
Just like what’s mentioned earlier, stress is something that can speed up or exacerbate baldness. In fact, it’s not unlikely for someone who is under a lot of stress to experience severe hair fall. This is the reason why you should try to keep your stress levels to a minimum if you want your mane to stay thick.
Although it’s virtually impossible to lead a stress-free life these days, try your best to dodge as many stressors as possible. Then you may also do yoga, have a massage, listen to music or perform any other relaxing activity to lower your stress levels and ward off baldness.
We all know that onions are good for the health despite of being bad for the breath. Did you know that this foul-smelling herb is actually very good at preventing baldness?
All you have to do is chop up some onions and massage the juice on the affected areas of the scalp. Your scalp may become reddish but this is a sign that the active compounds in onions are stimulating the hair follicles. Thoroughly rinse off with water afterwards or use a mild shampoo to completely eliminate the smell.
One more foul-smelling yet highly effective remedy for baldness is apple cider vinegar. Employing it to thicken your mane is as simple as diluting it with equal amounts of water, and using it as a final rinse after shampooing.
Many people who are bugged by baldness swear by the effectiveness of diluting apple cider vinegar with sage tea, which has antioxidant properties, instead of plain water. By the way, the best kind of apple cider vinegar for baldness is something that’s unfiltered and organic.
Coconut Milk Plus Aloe Vera
Both coconut milk and aloe vera are staple ingredients in so many hair products, most especially those that guarantee to give the consumers thicker and healthier mane. Well, it’s a scientific fact that the said ingredients are very good at thickening the hair, thus stopping baldness in its tracks.
The goal is to mix equal parts of coconut milk and aloe vera gel to come up with an all-natural hair growing paste. Apply on the scalp before going to bed, and then put on a shower cap. Shampoo your hair the following day.
Is there are health food store in your area? Do you know a reputable herbal seller on the internet? If so, consider getting your hands on saw palmetto if you are showing signs of baldness. Saw palmetto is one of the most revered herbs for baldness, as confirmed by many of those who have tried it.
Men most especially can benefit from the use of saw palmetto, which helps normalize the hormones. However, the intake of too much saw palmetto should be avoided. Otherwise, a man who is counting on the said herb may actually grow breasts, which is another thing that can rob him of his self-confidence, just like baldness.
Last but not least, having well-balanced meals can help put a stop to baldness. That’s because it helps supply your body with a range of nutrients that your hair follicles require to work optimally.
See to it that your meals consist of foods that contain: iron, zinc, copper, iodine, and vitamins A, B6, B12, C and E. Also, don’t forget the likes of oily fish, nuts and seeds as they contain healthy fats — they help control inflammation, something that can cause and/or worsen baldness.
