So in today’s post I am going to pin down some homemade recipes or home remedies for hair growth or for stopping hair loss.
An overall healthy and balanced diet is essential for healthy hair growth.You need to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and stay stress free for those beautiful and shiny tresses.
Below I have compiled down a few remedies to boost hair growth and to stop hair loss.
1.Amla:Also called as Indian Gooseberry,it is a powerhouse of antioxidants and Vitamin C that promotes healthy hair growth and improves the overall texture of the hair.
You can eat fresh gooseberry for healthy hair and when you don’t get fresh amla you can buy the dried ones from any grocery store,soak 3-4 pieces in half cup water overnight and eat the soaked amla in the morning and drink the water in which it had been soaked.
Another way in which you can use gooseberry for your hair is to take Amla powder,soak 5tbsp of amla powder in 4cups of water at night.In the morning give it a good boil, seive the water and use it to wash your hair.
Don’t use a shampoo,just pour the amla water onto wet hair and massage it well into your hair and your scalp.Leave it for 5 min and rinse with cold water.Try doing this for a couple of times and you will instantly notice volume in your hair,you will see the hair loss will be reduced and hair will be shiny and healthy.Washing your hair with amla powder also helps combat dandruff and prevents premature greying of hair.
2.Fenugreek:It accelerates hair growth and makes healthy,bouncy and shiny.Soak 5 tbsp of methi seeds in a cup of water.Grind them to a fine paste in the morning and apply it to your hair and scalp properly.Leave it on your hair for 45minutes and then rinse with cold water.This hair pack will boost hair growth and will make your hair healthy.
3.Henna:It transforms dull and dry hair to smooth and shiny hair and adds colour too.It promotes hair growth by strengthening the roots.Make a hair pack by mixing 1cup of dry henna powder with 1/2cup yoghurt.Apply it to all over your hair from root to tip.Leave it on your hair till it dries completely.Wash off with cold water and shampoo as usual.
4.Coconut Milk:It is rich in proteins,iron,potassium and essential fats.It reduces hair fall and breakage.Extract the milk of a coconut ,apply it all over your scalp with a cotton swab.Keep it overnight ,rinse off with cool water the next day.

6.Green Tea:As it is widely known that green tea is rich in antioxidants.These antioxidants prevent hair loss and boost hair growth.Apply warm green tea to all your hair and to all over your scalp.Leave it for an hour and rinse with cool water.
7.Vitamin E Oil:It is rich in antioxidants that help to fight away the free radicals.It also increases the blood circulation in the scalp.Massage Vitamin E oil to your scalp.Leave it overnight.Wash off with a shampoo on the next morning.
There is one more thing that I always do before sleeping and I feel that this step helps to promote hair growth and makes my hair and scalp healthy.Before sleeping I detangle my hair with a paddle brush and then very lightly with least pressure I massage my scalp for a good 5-7minutes,I call this dry massage.Dry massaging helps to boost hair growth by increasing the blood circulation in the scalp.I feel this is a very effective way to promote hair growth and it makes my hair healthy.
