Causes and cures for hair loss

Causes of hair loss and what to do about it

Our hair is too important to lose!  When we do see too much hair coming out in the brush and not staying on our head where it should, we first need to know why this is happening.

Some causes of hair loss are:

  • Plugged-up hair follicles, from an accumulation of shampoos and other hair products on your scalp
  • Lack of nutrients, in particular, iodine and silica
  • Poor circulation, especially to the top of your head. When you don’t have enough blood circulating in your scalp, then your hair roots don’t get enough nutrients to support the life and strength of your hair in the follicle.

Here are a few natural remedies

  • To keep your hair and scalp clean and follicles open, use aloe vera gel mixed with a few drops of jojoba oil.  Buy aloe vera gel, 99% pure and pure jojoba oil.  Put some aloe vera gel in your hand and add 4-5 drops of jojoba oil.  Rub your hands together then rub this mixture into your hair.  This mixture will keep your hair shiny and thick and your hair follicles open.
  • Make sure you get enough iodine and silica:
    Iodine is vital to your hair growth. When you lack iodine, you will lose more hair than normal and may even lose eyebrow hair.  It is best to use non-iodized salt and get your iodine from natural foods. These include seaweed, salmon, seafood, lima beans, molasses, eggs, potatoes with the skin on, watercress and garlic. Silica provides strength to your hair, and although it will not necessarily stop your hair from falling out from the follicle, it will stop hair breakage. Silica works by stimulating your cell metabolism and formation, which slows the aging process. Foods that are rich in silica are rice, oats, lettuce, parsnips, asparagus, onion, strawberry, cabbage, cucumber, leek, sunflower seeds, celery, rhubarb, cauliflower, and swiss chard. Try to buy these vegetables from organic sources.  Note that many of these foods, particularly rice, are a large part of Asian diets and Asians tend to have the strongest and healthiest hair.
  • For better circulation: At the end of your shower, run hot water over your head for 20 seconds, turn the hot water off and allow the cold water to run over your head for 20 seconds. Do this hot-cold water technique three – four times and end with the cold water.  This technique allow blood to move in and out of the lower layers of your scalp giving you a blood massage and providing more nutrients to your hair roots.  As a side benefit, you are bringing in more blood to your brain giving you more brain power as long as use this technique.Also, give your hair a good (but gentle) brushing every day. When you do it, bend over to get blood flowing to the top of your scalp. While still in the bent-over position, put down your brush and massage you scalp gently but firmly with the tips of your fingers.
  • Other tipsWhen you wash your hair, it’s enough to lather once, not twice (in spite of what the shampoo instructions tell you to do). Wash your hair and scalp thoroughly, and then rinse. It will be as clean as with two lathers.Try not to wash your hair every day. Your hair will become less oily over time. If you want a fresh feeling but don’t want to shampoo, just run hot water over your hair in the shower. This will rinse away some of the dirt and even out your hair, so that it will look clean without having to shampoo.

    As with skin products, avoid harmful chemicals (see my post on chemicals to avoid)

Here are some natural hair care products you can make yourself:

  • Make a shampoo with aloe vera gel, a small amount of wheat germ oil and coconut milk. This is said to be a great hair enhancer. (Aloe Vera balances the pH level of scalp and heals by cleaning the pores.)
  • Boil together in water rosemary, sage, peach leaf, nettle and burdock. When cool, add apple cider vinegar. Apply to your hair daily. This will strengthen your hair. (Nettle root is rich in vitamins A and C, it is used as an inhibitor of 5-alpha reductase. Rosemary and sage are very good natural hair enhancers. Apple cider vinegar wil help restore the Ph balance of your hair, and is also good for dandruff.)
  • Oils:
    Jojoba Oil: It keeps your scalp healthy and free from skin diseases. It controls dandruff. Jojoba oil is also a great moisturizer for your hair.
    Coconut oil: good for the skin all around.
    Olive oil: also a well- known traditional hair treatment.

    To avoid a greasy look, you can treat your hair with your choice of oil a couple of hours before washing, or the night before washing in the morning.
