5 best ways to increase hair growth naturally

Baldness and hair loss are common conditions. Losing one’s hair can lower one’s confidence.  As we age our follicles are a little lazy and need a boost. Let’s take a look at the 5 best ways to increase hair growth naturally.

Eggs:

Our hair is made up of 70% keratin protein. Eggs are packed with protein and Biotin. This is why eggs are good for our hair. The protein in eggs helps repair damaged hair, and also strengthens hair.

Tip: Try to eat “pasture”, organic and cage free eggs on a regular basis.

Wash your hair. Mix 1 beaten egg with 2 Tbsp of raw organic olive oil.

Apply the egg mixture on your damp hair as you would a conditioner. Leave for 15 minutes. Wrap your hair in a towel. Rinse your hair thoroughly.

Aloe vera:

It is packed with vitamins A, C, and E, which help promote hair growth and shine. It is often used on the skin to soothe skin damage. It also helps increase blood flow on the scalp, which also helps promote hair growth.

Tip: Try massaging aloe vera gently into your hair and scalp. Let it sit for up to an hour and then rinse it out with a sulfate-free shampoo.

Coconut oil:

Coconut oil is hydrophobic which means it repels water. The reason why it is good for our hair is because of its ability to stop penetration of water into each strand which would make hair susceptible to damage. According to a study in the Journal of Cosmetic Science “Coconut oil, being a triglyceride of lauric acid (principal fatty acid), has a high affinity for hair proteins and, because of its low molecular weight and straight linear chain, is able to penetrate inside the hair shaft.”

Tip: Massage your scalp with 3 tbsp of coconut oil and keep 30 minutes. Wrap you hair in a hot towel. Wash you hair with an organic shampoo.

Rosemary:

Author Valerie Ann Worwood, in her book “The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy,” recommends rosemary oil for hair growth. Worwood states in her book that rosemary oil promotes cell growth and dilates blood vessels, which helps stimulate hair growth.

Tip: Mix 3 Tbsp of coconut oil with 4 drops of rosemary essential oil and keep 15 minutes. Wrap you hair in a hot towel. Wash you hair with an organic shampoo.

Lavender:

Lavender essential oil can help prevent hair loss and promote hair growth. Numerous cases of hair loss can be attributed to a medical condition known as alopecia areata. Alopecia is a autoimmune disease that causes your body to consider hair follicles as foreign objects. Patients who massaged lavender oil onto their scalp daily saw significant improvement in hair growth.

Tip: Mix 3 tbsp of raw olive oil with 5 drops of lavender essential oil and keep 15 minutes. Wrap you hair in a hot towel. Wash you hair with an organic shampoo.
