Hair Loss Remedies That Can Be Administered From Home

Hair loss affects a person psychologically. It leads to low self-esteem. Male pattern hair loss is the most common cause of hair loss. It is responsible for over 95% of all cases of male pattern hair loss. It is also known as androgenetic alopecia. There are several treatment options, including minoxidil, finasteride, and dutasteride. Although they are effective in treating hair loss, they cause significant side effects. Many people are trying alternative medicine to treat hair loss.

It is estimated that over 50% of people use CAM, either alone or in conjunction with conventional therapy. Alternative medicine also includes home remedies. Below are some of the home remedies available to treat hair loss.

Amla oil

Amla is also called the Indian gooseberry. Dried pieces of amla are boiled with coconut oil and applied to the scalp. This enriches the hair follicles and stimulates hair growth. Amla juice can also be mixed with lime and used as a shampoo to stimulate hair growth.

Rubbing the scalp

The hair on the scalp is washed with cold water and the scalp is rubbed with the fingers. This is done several times a day. This improves blood circulation to the scalp, which leads to increased hair growth.


A mixture of lettuce and spinach juice helps improve hair growth. About 500 ml of this mixture should be taken daily to see good results.

Coconut milk

Similar to coconut oil, coconut milk also has hair growth-promoting properties. It is produced by crushing the coconut shavings and pressing them well. This milk is applied to the scalp and massaged regularly. Coconut milk nourishes the hair follicles and makes them healthy.


Onions have proven to be very useful in the treatment of hair loss. It is particularly useful in the treatment of hair loss in spots such as Alopecia areata. Raw onions should be rubbed regularly on these bald spots. They should be rubbed until this area turns red. Honey should then be applied. Regular use leads to good hair growth over a longer period of time.

Henna leaves

Henna is beneficial in the treatment of hair loss, especially when used in conjunction with mustard oil. About 60 grams of henna leaves should be cooked in 250 ml of mustard oil. This is then filtered. The filtered oil should be applied regularly to prevent hair loss and promote hair growth.


Fenugreek has been shown to be effective in the treatment of diabetes mellitus. Fenugreek has also been shown to be effective in the treatment of hair loss. A paste of cooked fenugreek and black gram should be applied regularly to the scalp. This has been shown to lengthen hair.


Nutrient deficiencies, such as lack of iron and vitamin deficiency, can lead to hair loss, especially due to telogen effluvium, which is a common cause of hair loss. A diet rich in iron and vitamins prevents iron deficiency and consequent hair loss. The diet should be rich in seeds, nuts, cereals, vegetables, and fruits and should be supplemented with certain special foods such as milk, vegetable oils, honey, wheat germ, yeast, and liver.

LIGHTENING AND DYING OVER HENNA | Vitamin C and Dandruff Shampoo

I want to be clear that I am not throwing any shade at hairstylists whatsoever! They have all gone through a lot of schooling to get their license and therefore they know what they’re talking about. However, everyone has had different experiences in their lives and a few of them did not yet have experience with dying over henna; a few of them said they’d heard of bad things happening to people who dye over the henna. From those responses I can gather that it’s a higher risk situation and it’s important to be very careful, do strand tests with whatever you do, etc etc. All I know is that I was able to lighten henna after 5 of the vitamin C treatments and then dye over it successfully without any issues. Just to reiterate, I used LUSH Caca Marron henna over my strawberry blonde hair so I knew the only thing on my hair would be that pure henna (no other dyes underneath, no metallic salts, etc etc). I then used an ammonia-free semi-permanent dye (Clairol natural instincts) to cover that lighter color once some of the henna had been stripped away. I’m actually looking to remove that brown color now because I think my roots are grown out enough underneath for it to not look so weird (when my blond grows in a teeny tiny bit, it looks like I’m balding lol. I wanted to wait until a couple of inches had grown in so it looked more normal haha!) In a few days I plan to do another vitamin C treatment and film it this time to see if it will remove some of the brown semi-perm dye since it still hasn’t come out after 2 months, and also to show y’all the process. Keep an eye out for that! I upload on Tuesdays and sometimes Thursdays. Hopefully, this is informative for anyone who is thinking of trying henna or who wants to change things up after applying henna! Peace!:)
