Hair loss is such a nuisance, no matter what age you are. Unfortunately, individuals as young as the age of 20 are suffering from hair loss. This age range continuously increases, and individuals get older. It can be a hard condition to combat and “get rid of” and even harder to find a treatment that helps reverse it. If you are someone struggling from hair loss but do not have the money for hair restoration surgeries or the time for in-clinic treatments, keep reading. Below I am going to go into some affordable hair loss treatments you can use at home.
DIY Hair Masks
Hair masks are some of the easiest and most affordable at home hair thinning treatments. All you need is the right ingredients, and you will be set. And even better, most of the ingredients you will need will last you a long time so you can make more masks in the future!
The best ingredients for do it yourself masks are eggs, coconut oil, cinnamon, peppermint, onion juice, and honey. I know what you are thinking, “These are so random”. Some are quite gross, too (eggs and onion juice). But, all of these ingredients have helpful restoring properties that will help stimulate and grow your hair. The best ones that you can put together are: coconut oil and cinnamon, egg and honey, coconut oil and honey, peppermint and honey, and onion juice alone. All of these items can be used to strengthen the hair follicles on the head.
Laser caps are a hair growth treatment option that use low level light therapy to stimulate blood flow and encourage growth in the hair follicles on the scalp. These FDA-cleared caps are one of the first at-home hair growth treatment options using this therapy.
The hats are used at your convenience every other day and usually consist of a treatment time of 30-minutes. The technology behind these devices is incredible and gaining the approval from medical professionals and scientists all over the world. Hair growth is typically seen around 4-6 months after using the caps religiously.
Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is one of the most powerful essential oils on the market when it comes to the human body. This includes the hair on the scalps of men and women. This oil has anti-fungal properties which helps keep your hair strong and free of bacteria.
Tea tree oil helps prevent the buildup of products used on the hair such as dry shampoo, hairspray, gels, and more. It will keep your hair moisturized and in turn will help promote healthy hair growth. Massage this oil lightly into your scalp on a daily basis for the best results. Feel free to incorporate this into some of your DIY hair masks listed above. It is best paired with coconut oil.
Onion juice is an effective remedy for hair loss. This food group contains a high dietary sulfur content which is actually a nutritional element needed within our bodies. It can also restore the shine and luster of your hair.
You can also find amino acids in sulfur that are protein components. Since proteins, especially keratin, are sulfur-rich, it is essential for healthy growth of strong hair. With onion juice applied to your scalp, you provide extra sulfur that promotes thicker and stronger hair. This prevents hair breakage and boosts the growth of your hair.
Stinging nettle root contains vitamins and minerals that are essential to the scalp to be able to support a healthy head of hair. Sulphur and silica are present in the leaves helps encourage new growth of the follicles. They also have anti-inflammatory properties and the ability to block the DHT hormone which can be detrimental to hair loss.
Now that you know what the best at home hair loss treatments are, you will be able to apply them to your weekly routine. Make sure you are doing your own research so that the treatment you are using is the best for your hair type. Consulting with your local doctor or dermatologist will also help.
