These are they Basic Remedies to adhere to.

  • · Stay away from conditioners. I don't use conditioner after shampooing. Applying the conditioner means injecting more chemicals into your scalp and hair. And more chemicals mean more damage to your hair. Instead I use a leave-in conditioner. You don't need any fancy brands.
  • Avoid tight styles Tight ponytails, or braids, or any other tight styles put strain on your hair roots, and can lead to hair loss. If you wear tight styles every day, hair may stop growing permanently from areas it is pulled most from, causing a bald patch. Once in a while is fine, but wearing tight styles every day is a big no. For daily wear opt for loose undoes, ponytails or braids to keep hair under control, but without any damage.
  • Lentils and beans are my friends I am a 95% vegetarian and occasionally eat some meat. So I get my quota of protein and iron from super healthy and super yummy lentil (dales) and beans, which I mostly sprout.
  • · As we know hair is mainly composed of proteins and lack of protein will slow the hair growth, and can even cause hair loss. Iron is another important nutrient for healthy hair growth. It transports oxygen to our cells, which also includes hair cells. And too little oxygen affects the hair growth. So make sure that you're eating enough protein and iron in your diet.
  • And not to forget fresh veggies and fruits Your hair needs a regular supply of vitamins and minerals - such as vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E, iron, calcium, and biotin, zinc - to grow healthy and strong. Fruits and vegetables like orange, banana, berries, kiwi, apple, apricot, green leafy vegetables, cauliflower, carrot, pumpkin, and melon must be eaten in sufficient amounts as they provide the necessary nutrients that are required for the healthy hair growth.
  • Harsh shampoos have caused me a lot of trouble - itchy and flaky scalp, rough dry hair, and related hair loss. Shampoos, conditioners, and hair styling products may contain harsh chemicals such as propylene glycol, isopropyl alcohol, phthalates, artificial colour; artificial fragrance .These synthetic chemicals can cause allergic reaction, skin irritation, itchy scalp and even hair loss.
  • · What to do: Learn to read the labels and buy products containing safer and natural ingredients.
  • In the ends I just want to add that you got to keep patience. If you start any new ritual it will take about 4 to 6 months (I am being honest here and not giving a shorter timeline just to please my wonderful readers) for any noticeable change to appear.
  • Low-fat Proteins Since hair is made of protein, a diet full of fish, eggs, beans, and other low-fat, high-protein foods can help supply your hair with the raw materials it needs to grow. · Raisins Iron is a key factor in hair production, so any foods rich in this mineral will do. But for those of you who don't relish the thought of packing in the kale, dried fruits like raisins are a great snack that will help boost your iron levels.
  • Bean Sprouts These veggies are full of silica, which your body uses to process the vitamins and minerals (like that iron you got from those raisins) that help your hair grow.
  • Walnuts These nuts can pack a huge punch with biotin and vitamin E, which help protect your hair and scalp from sun damage. Low biotin consumption has also been linked with hair loss, so it's a smart idea to make sure you're getting enough of it.
  • Nettle Extract Another Chinese herb, nettle extract works to just barely irritate your scalp, which causes increased blood flow and improved circulation, and therefore better oxygen absorption by your hair follicles.
  • Oysters Not getting enough zinc has been tied to hair loss in both men and women, but just three ounces of oysters give you almost 500% of the daily recommended dose of zinc. They're also incredibly rich in protein. Check out for more INSIGHT.
