Hair loss is an unwanted and embarrassing problem that people of both sexes may experience. There are several factors that play a role in hair loss, including genetics and overall mental and physical health. Perhaps the most common solutions to hair loss (for both men and women) are wigs and hair transplant surgery. Although these procedures are often successful, they can be expensive. So, before taking the pricey route, try to grow your hair back using a 100 percent natural remedy.
Things You'll Need
- 1 cup coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons dry amla
Pour 1 cup of coconut oil into a saucepan. Put the pan on the stove and set it to medium heat. Note that you can find coconut oil at natural food stores as well as craft stores.
Chop amla into 1/4 inch pieces while the coconut oil heats up. Amla is a type of fruit that is also referred to as Indian gooseberry. Once the oil has begun to boil, add your amla to the saucepan.
Stir the concoction every 30 seconds for about five minutes. After five minutes has passed, turn the heat off and let the liquid cool down to room temperature. To speed this process, you can place it in your refrigerator.
Rub the solution into your scalp once it has completely cooled down. Let it sit on your head for 45 minutes to an hour. After the time has passed, rinse the solution off with cool water and gently pat dry. You can repeat this as often as you would normally wash your hair, but once a day to every other day is recommended.
