The causes of hair loss are multiple: genetics, seasonal changes, hormonal changes (pregnancy), stress, age, iron deficiency, etc. Sometimes the medications you take, especially cholesterol and antidepressant medications, can have their share of responsibility. Nevertheless, what is certain is that you want to stop losing your hair and that balding can be scary! Fortunately, many natural tricks are wonderful anti hair loss treatments. Grandmother lists for you some of these natural remedies for beautiful hair stronger and voluminous.
Consult your doctor (or dermatologist) in case of severe hair loss or alopecia areata. Only he can help you determine the underlying cause of this hair loss and find the right treatment.
1) Some tips against hair loss
First, put restorative sleep in the spotlight and exercise from time to time. Indeed, lifestyle also plays a lot in hair loss! Moreover, treat your hair with softness. Massage your scalp as soon as you do or think about hair care. This will stimulate capillary microcirculation. Also, avoid brushing them when they are wet or attacking them with heat, straightening or dyes.
For accessories and care, opt for a brush made of natural fibres and banish elastic too tight. Moreover, ultra-plated hairstyles are also not recommended. Finally, for the shampoo, choose a suitable formula that does not contain sulfates. Ideally, we recommend using ayurvedic powders in shampoos against hair loss. For example, maka is said to cure alopecia. As for amla, it slows down the fall and promotes the growth of the capillary mass.
2) Nettle among the best natural tricks against hair loss

Nettles are very effective in stimulating the scalp. Their leaves contain vitamin B, trace elements and minerals such as magnesium or iron. In short, this is all your scalp needs to display a beautiful regrowth. To do this, boil a litre of water and add 4 tablespoons of nettle leaves. Then let infuse about ten minutes and use the mixture obtained to massage your scalp twice a week. Note also that there are also capsules of nettle leaves in pharmacy.
3) Natural herbal tips for hair loss
Want to make a lotion that stimulates and strengthens the hair? So, it is rosemary that you need, because this plant has stimulating virtues on hair regrowth and will keep them well in place! To do this, macerate 20 g of fresh rosemary in 1 l of cider vinegar for 2 weeks. After that, filter everything and transfer it into a bottle. Thus, you will only have to rub your scalp for about ten minutes with this before your usual shampoo. More rosemary? Replace it with thyme which is a capillary stimulant! Otherwise, infuse 150 g of fresh basil leaves in 1 litre of water. After 20 minutes, squeeze and filter this hair follicle fortifying treatment.
4) Essential oils for hair growth
Many essential oils help to stop this phenomenon and stimulate hair regrowth. Often, they are effective against fall problems, because they strengthen the capillary shaft. Here, for example, there is ylang-ylang, grapefruit or essential oil from Bay St Thomas. To slow hair loss, you can also massage 5 drops of Atlas cedar essential oil onto your scalp before shampooing (to be done over 3 weeks). Nevertheless, the best way to use these oils is to dilute 2 drops in a hazelnut of shampoo. Then leave for 2 to 3 minutes before rinsing. Otherwise, make a mask before shampooing for 1 hour. To do this, count 5 drops of essential oil and 20 of argan or castor vegetable oil for example. (Castor oil will strengthen the hair and accelerate its growth.) Then massage long before letting it sit.
5) Mustard oil, one of the least known natural tricks against hair loss

The potential uses of mustard are already largely unknown. However, mustard oil helps to sheath the hair and promote its growth by stimulating the blood circulation thanks to its heating effect. In addition, this oil strengthens the hair fiber and reduces dandruff. In the end, the hair is shiny, smooth and stronger. And to not spoil anything, this oil also reduces premature aging of the hair. To limit hair loss, we advise you to use it as a toning mask by associating it with other oils. For example, count 1 tablespoon of castor oil, 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and 2 tablespoon of mustard oil to leave on for 15 minutes. Alternatively, dilute 5 drops of an essential oil mentioned earlier in 10 ml of mustard oil and 30 ml of vegetable oil(s) of your choice for a more complete mask.
6) Eat to limit hair loss
We had already listed the beneficial foods in case of hair loss. One of the causes of hair loss can be stress. So, to deal with it, it is also advisable to put magnesium in the spotlight since this trace element acts in the preservation of nervous balance. All you have to do is feed on magnesium-rich foods such as chocolate (the greedy ones will be delighted!), whole grains or nuts. You can then supplement with a dietary supplement. Rich in vitamins of group B, brewer’s yeast is for example often prescribed in case of hair loss. 3 times a day, add 2 g of brewer’s yeast to your food. You can find them in the form of powder, flakes, tablets or capsules.
