Hair loss is no picnic. No one likes to see their once full head of hair slowly dwindle down to nothing, or be completely gone. Hair loss can be caused by many factors, but one of the most common forms of hair loss is Alopecia, which can result in permanent hair loss if not caught in time.

If you have noticed your hair starting to thin or fall out at alarming rates, no need to panic just yet. The following home remedies for balding can help prevent further hair loss and may just restore your head to its former glory.

Find the Cause of Your Hair Loss

Hair loss can be triggered by a variety of things. While much hair loss on the head is common as people age (about two-thirds of men and 40 percent of women experience some age-related hair loss), even the progression of age-related hair loss can be slowed and prevented to some extent. Some of the most common causes of hair loss include:

  • Recent pregnancy
  • Aging
  • Stress
  • Chemical exposure
  • Allergic reactions
  • Medication or medical treatments
  • Illness

When you pinpoint the reason for your hair loss, you can determine which home remedies for balding are likely to be more effective for your particular case. Hair loss caused by stress, for example, can be reduced by eliminating the source of the stress and working out ways to reduce the effects of stress on your body.

A vacation from work, nightly relaxation techniques, a new exercise routine, or a spa day may all provide relief from the buildup of stress. If your hair loss is caused by a medication, perhaps your doctor can prescribe a different medication without the side effects of hair loss.

Natural Home Remedies for Balding

After determining the cause of your hair loss, use these home remedies to reverse and slow the progression of your hair loss.

Meditation

Meditation is the perfect way to counteract stress-based hair loss. Meditation has been proven to relieve stress and lower the stress hormone cortisol. Stress can cause hair loss (usually temporarily) and once the stress is under control, the hair should regrow as thick as before.

Vitamin D and Light

According to a process called "cellular mitosis" when your hair is exposed to light, the hair follicles are stimulated and your hair is more likely to grow thick and abundantly on your head. Vitamin D is also important for the right balance of hormones in the body and for providing the right nutrients to the scalp that can prevent hair loss and restore healthy hair growth to the head.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has antibacterial and antifungal properties as well as moisturizing properties. Coconut oil is a healthy topical remedy for hair loss. Coconut oil can reduce dandruff and stimulate the hair follicles to move into the hair production phase and spend less time in the rest phase.

Switch Shampoos

Some shampoos can cause more hair loss than others. For example, shampoos that contain sodium laureth sulfate are incredibly damaging for your hair. The chemical dries the scalp and makes it less able to produce oils that are essential for healthy hair growth. SLS can also irritate the scalp and make hair prone to breakage and other damage.

Reduce Water Pressure

Sometimes your water pressure could be damaging your hair and making it fall out more if your hair follicles are already weak. If you suspect your shower might be causing greater hair loss, rather than washing your hair in the shower, try washing it in the bath or a sink instead. This will reduce the damage to your hair follicles and prevent hair from falling out prematurely.

Rosemary Oil

Rosemary oil is attributed with the ability to stimulate hair follicles and blood flow to the scalp, making your hair follicles emerge from the rest phase faster. Rosemary oil is a simple remedy that can help strengthen the hair and prevent premature hair loss.

Green Tea

Studies on green tea have found that this remedy can prevent some of the common causes of hair loss. Green tea contains compounds that fight against damage in the heart and in the scalp. TNF-alpha is a chemical that is damaging both to the heart and to the quality of your hair. Drinking anti-oxidant-rich green tea will help prevent the damage caused by TNF-alpha which will strengthen your hair and prevent hair loss. Green tea is also effective in fighting excess DHT, which is also attributed with causing hair loss.

Diet

What you eat can also affect the quality of your hair. A lack of protein in the diet can quickly result in hair loss and weak nails. Boosting levels of both protein and omega 3 fats will have beneficial effects on the health of your hair. Iron is also important for hair health. Hair loss can be a side effect of anemia.

Saw Palmetto Extract

Saw palmetto has long been a remedy for male health. Saw palmetto contains compounds that eliminate DHT from the body. Saw palmetto is so effective that it is included in most hair loss remedies and is one of the most well-known natural preventers of hair loss.

Use a Hair Stimulating Shampoo

Many shampoos are designed to slow and reverse hair loss. These shampoos contain ingredients that stimulate the hair growth period of the hair cycle and slow the progression of hair fall, ensuring you have more hairs on your head at a time. These shampoos will not fully regrow hair that has completely fallen out, but they can prevent further hair damage.

Shampoo Guidelines

Look for shampoos containing:

  • Caffeine
  • DHT blockers
  • B vitamins
  • Saw palmetto
  • Essential oils
  • Plant extracts

Avoid shampoos containing:

  • Parabens
  • Preservatives
  • Sodium lauryl sulfate
  • Alcohol (in the first four ingredients)
  • Other harsh chemicals

Home Remedies can Slow the Progression of Baldness

If your hair is falling out, you don't have to despair. There are steps you can take to slow the progression of hair loss. First, find the cause of your hair loss and address that directly. Then, start implementing the home remedies for balding outlined above to prevent your hair from falling out and leading to permanent baldness. These remedies are most effective when used in conjunction with other hair-boosting remedies, such as hair stimulating formulas and supplements that boost healthy hair growth.
