Natural ways to encourage hair growth

Natural ways to encourage hair growth On the scalp, approximately 90% of the hairs are in the growth phase (anagen), and the remaining 10-20% is in the resting phase (telogen). Anagen stage of a human hair typically lasts between two to six years, during which time it grows about 1 cm per month. After the stage of growth, hair remains in the resting phase about three to five months and then falls and it is replaced by a new strand of hair. Normally, we can lose between 30 and 100 hairs per day, more pronounced in autumn and winter.

The most common causes of hair loss are: giving birth, fever, stress, surgery, weight loss, too high or too low levels of thyroid hormones, iron deficiency. Anemia increases the sensitivity of the hair to factors that inhibit growth; it is therefore recommended a blood test to see the level of iron in the body. Zinc supplements are also recommended as zinc is a cofactor in many enzymatic processes.


Hair experts say that proper nutrition, supplements and hair care techniques can give good results in terms of hair growth. Folic acid helps the body to produce keratin, the protein that makes up hair. Besides folic acid, the most important nutrients that promote hair growth are: zinc, biotin and iron. There are usually found in nuts, beans, green vegetables and salmon.
Dyeing, bleaching, permanent waving can damage the hair and cause hair loss.

To regain brightness of the hair it is recommended to wash it with a mild shampoo, two or three times a week; too alkaline shampoos make hair without gloss and hard to comb. Conditioner repairs the damaged hair structure by forming a protective film on its surface and increases endurance. Rinsing hair with a mild acid (vinegar) neutralizes the effect of alkaline shampoos, and as a result hair becomes sleek, shiny and easy to comb. Many times dandruff can aggravate the hair loss, so it is important to prevent the occurrence of this affection. Nettle tincture can combats dandruff and prevent hair loss. You can try to rinse your hair with apple cider vinegar or rosemary infusion.

Hair loss can be prevented using an infusion of walnut leaves or horsetail. The infusion is made of 3 tablespoons chopped herb to one quart of boiling water, let infuse for 10 minutes than you can use it. Celandine is a plant that also significantly reduces the loss of hair. Lavender tincture is another natural remedy that can stimulate hair growth; you need to massage the scalp with this tincture and then leave it covered about 2 hours after that the hair can be rinse with a shampoo.
