What are the home remedies for hair loss?

Basically, when you see a lot of different hair styles, you want to try them out. But, you can’t because the shedding of your hair results in a drop in confidence. Here are some ideas to prevent further hair loss and how you can manage the nascent stage of your hair fall. Whenever your hair fall starts, it doesn’t always mean that you are having severe diseases or problems. Hair loss can even be because of your hairstyle and because of your daily lifestyle. Your diet needs to be managed and habits like tight ponytails are not right because whenever you do a tight ponytail your hair gets tension at the front side and it results into hair loss.   If you are using heats tool like if you are in a habit of straightening, perming, or curling in which there is the utility of heat appliances, then that aggravates hair loss too. Whenever you use heat products, the outermost layer, responsible for the shine starts to dull out. It really damages your hairs from the outside and your hair breaks and may even get rough, so don’t apply these heat products on your hair. If by chance you want to use it, use them occasionally. Also, make sure that you do not expose any strand of your hair for to heat for more than 8-10 seconds. Another trick is to comb or oil. Some people think that there is no need of regular combing and oiling, but it is integral. Using a wooden comb instead of a plastic comb is better because your plastic comb has a static effect. To avoid the effects of static effect, you should massage your hair. It has to be in slow circulation massage like whenever you put oil or whenever you take a head bath, just put your finger tips on your scalp moving in circular motion. These are the steps by which we can prevent further hair loss. We can take help of some product which can take care of particular problems like if you are having a lot of dandruff on your scalp, and if that is the reason for your hair fall then to manage your dandruff, you can use mint leaves which have antibacterial properties.   You can also use castor oil which has medicated property. By using these, you can get rid of your dandruffbut that is not the only solution because it can help you at a nascent stage but not in a serious stage of dandruff so you have to use mild shampoos, which will take care of the anti-dandruff. But if you have a fungal infection or if you have serious sticky dandruff, then you definitely need some medicated products in which case you have to take help of your doctor if you have very dry, frizzy or dull hair.
