Hair loss is one of the most common issue for both men and women. According to various studies, more than 20 million women are suffering from hair loss and that’s only in the US.
Hair shedding is part of everyday life, yes, it obstructs the drain of your shower, and yes, it means you have to vacuum every single day or your carpet becomes a hairy rug … But the fact is, it is completely normal to lose hair.
We lose about 80 strands a day on average, if you start shedding significantly more than that or you notice they don’t grow back, well, that’s when things start to get a bit hairy.
The thing is, there are so many potential triggers when it comes to hair loss, which means it can be tricky to identify the exact reason why your strands fall out and how to remedy the situation from now on. Although this condition is generally linked to genetics, there are many factors that can cause it as well, like stress, weight loss, pregnancy, menopause or hormonal imbalance. Most of the products available in the markets that are meant to stimulate hair growth can cost a fortune.
This is why homemade remedies can be extremely beneficial. Just add these 3 ingredients to a shampoo.
Shampoo For Hair Loss
Step 1: Shampoo Base
Buy a natural shampoo of your own choice, but with neutral pH.
Step 2: Essential Oils
Add a couple of drops of both rosemary and lemon essential oils to the shampoo base. The lemon essential oil has anti-microbial properties, can eliminate toxins from your body and stimulates the lymph drainage. The rosemary essential oil is rich in antioxidants, and it’s often used to treat premature graying hair and prevent dandruff.
Step 3: Vitamin E
If you use Vitamin E oil, add 10 drops in the mixture. If you use capsules, add only two. Vitamin E can help repair damaged hair follicles and promote hair growth.
