To prevent hair loss, improve circulation and stimulate their growth it is very convenient to brush daily and massage the scalp.
Many people suffer hair loss without finding a solution, as it can be related to many factors such as genetics, hormones, stress, nutrition, etc.
In this article, we give you some effective and natural tips to combat hair loss and also stimulate the scalp to grow faster and healthier.
Can you stop hair loss?
Each case is different and a personalized diagnosis must be made to discover, in the first place, what is the cause of this disorder.
They can often be temporary issues related to a poor diet, a period of stress or a temporary thyroid disorder, so you can look for a personalized treatment that is effective and appropriate.
Other times it can be a major health problem or genetic inheritance, which are more difficult issues to solve. However, if we follow these tips with constancy, we can notice an important improvement in a short time.
These tips are also suitable for those people who do not suffer from hair loss but who want their hair to grow faster and stronger.
Relax the scalp
Today we suffer tensions of all kinds and in any part of the body. One of these areas, although it may surprise us, is the scalp.
This tension hinders or prevents a good blood supply to the hair root, which can cause hair loss, weakening, gray hair, excess sebum, dandruff, etc.
The first step to fight against these tensions is to massage every day the entire scalp. It should not be a superficial massage, but a little more intense, trying to move and relax the entire surface.
It is a very relaxing massage, perfect to perform for 5 or 10 minutes every day before bedtime.
Stimulate it with mint and cinnamon
By doing this massage of the scalp we can enhance its effects using a natural product that helps us stimulate blood flow. A very simple option is found in two essential oils with stimulating properties: mint and cinnamon.
Both oils favor circulation but with an opposite effect. Mint gives freshness, while cinnamon gives heat. By combining them we get a very beneficial cold-heat effect.
We must always use them in small quantities, with a moisturizing base:
- 2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel or extra virgin coconut oil (30 g)
- 5 drops of peppermint essential oil.
- 5 drops of cinnamon essential oil.
Choose natural products
If we want to take care of any part of the body we should always choose the most natural products of hygiene and cosmetics.
In the case of hair, we should especially avoid those that contain preservatives (parabens) and sulfates that are too strong, such as sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) or sodium lauryl ether sulfate (SLES).
We can find natural or organic products in herbalists and natural products stores.
Nourishing hair every day
It seems very obvious, but combing is a way to improve circulation in the scalp and distribute the sebum well to have a brighter and more balanced hair.
We must use appropriate combs of natural materials such as for example, wood with bristles of vegetable or animal origin.
We will comb our hair in every direction every day.
Do not lack nutrients
It is essential to have a balanced diet, rich in vitamins, minerals, protein and fatty acids, to provide the ingredients that our hair needs.
The following foods cannot be missing in our diet:
- Nuts and seeds.
- Fruits and vegetables raw.
- Blue Fish.
- Seawater or sea salt.
- Beer yeast.
Stand upside down
The inverted postures in which the head is below the rest of the body are very beneficial to health and, specifically, to prevent hair loss.
We can do some simple posture, lie down in an inclined way or use a specific gym machine.
It will be enough to do it for 5 or 10 minutes each day, starting gradually. We must avoid doing it during digestion or menstruation.
Say goodbye to stress
Finally, do not forget that stress is one of the worst health problems we can have, since it unbalances the entire organism and leads to multiple disorders, including hair loss.
