My Hair Loss Recovery Story
Losing hair was one of the worst nightmares I went through. There were a bunch of hairs in my hands every time I used to comb my hair, wash my hair or even just try to tie them. All the methods that were recommended by my peers and colleagues were tried by me. But as usual, there was no result. Finally, I decided to change my diet and my lifestyle. Every problem has a solution. Even hair fall has the solution. There is a full checklist of dos and don’ts that you need to follow if you need to recover from the terrible curse of hair loss.
- Firstly you should cut the amount of junk food you eat. These foods are not good for digestive system and a poor digestive system ultimately damages a lot of normal functioning of the body. Also, do not consume a lot of cold drinks as they contain chemicals. Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking.
- Daily do the head massage as it nourishes the scalp. Use oils such as coconut, olive, sunflower, avocado, castor, ghee, and evening primrose. Head massages improve the blood circulation and also drain away the toxic and dirt from the scalp. Apply the oil to your scalp and massage gently with the finger pads. Keep doing it for 15 minutes and then wash your hair. You can even keep it for a night for stronger hairs.
- Say no to the conditioners. They inject more chemicals in your hair and makes them weak. These chemicals damage your hairs. Some of the best conditioners to use are the coconut, olive, almond, jojoba, and aloe vera. You can also apply little oil or butter in your hairs if they are very fizzy to avoid the dryness.
- Always use a wide tooth comb. Pointy tooth combs can hurt the delicate growth of hair and can also cause the abrasions on your scalp. Wide tooth wooden comb as compared to the plastic ones are gentler and provides the massaging effect. They also help in distributing the sebum from the scalp to the hair. So for a healthy mane use the wide tooth wooden comb and discard the toothy plastic ones.
- There is an ancient therapy of fingernail rubbing that enhances the hair growth. Rub your fingernails briskly against each other for about 10 minutes. It stimulates the hair growth and makes your hair strong and healthy. It works as reflexology through the energy channels. Some have even claimed the growth of hairs in the bald areas with this therapy.
- Eating flax seeds will keep your hairs vibrant and beautiful. Flax seeds are filled with omega 3, selenium, copper, phosphorus, magnesium, vitamin B, and amino acids. These nutrients are really important for the growth of healthy hairs. Sprinkle some flax seeds on your salad or make sandwiches and stuffed bread.
- Exercise is another important key to hair loss problem. Exercising regularly provides an adequate amount of oxygen to the scalp and it helps in growth of strong and nourished hairs.
- Eating amla and other fruits rich in vitamin C is very important for the growth of strong hairs. Mix one teaspoon of amla with coconut or jojoba oil and massage with it gently. Massage for 15 minutes and then wash your hairs.
- Eat green leafy vegetables, fruits rich in vitamin A; E, and C. eggs and flax seeds are equally important for the nourishment of hairs and the scalp from the roots.
- Lastly, it is very important to always stay happy. Being happy and tension free life effects all our body and our hairs are no exception. It thus helps in maintaining a proper growth of hair and keeps them strong and healthy.
