Hair loss is a dreaded topic to most and more common than you might think. Hair loss often strikes many people as the hair begins to thin in mid to late life. Some people have the idea that only males experience hair loss, but females are prone to thinning hair that can lead to bald spots.
Though around a third of the general population suffers from hair loss, little do people know that out there are many herbs and plant foods for hair growth! While hair loss can be detrimental to the way we feel about ourselves, we can eat foods that are good for us to help prevent hair loss. Oriental Solutions shares about some plant foods and herbs that you should start taking before hair loss even becomes an issue for you.
- Avocado, hemp, chia seeds, coconut
Essential fatty acids are crucial to the health of our scalp and the rest of our body. Omega-3 and 6 in these fats help improve scalp circulation, nourish the hair follicle, prevent or reverse hair loss and increase the strength and thickness of our hair.
- Berries, citrus fruits and red pepper
Getting enough vitamin C in your diet helps promote collagen production. Collagen surrounds the hair strands, but it breaks down as we age, making the hair brittle and more vulnerable to breaking.
- Green leafy vegetables
Increasing your consumption of iron-rich foods can significantly help the look, feel, and overall health of your hair. Iron is essential for hair growth, as it helps improve the quality of our blood and promotes circulation of blood around the scalp.
- Aloe Vera
This plant is excellent for the skin and hair, as well as promoting hair growth. Aloe contains more than 20 minerals and vitamins A, C, E, B1, B2, B6, and B12 which are all essential for hair growth. It is a hair growth stimulant and conditioning agent which contains an enzyme necessary for the stimulation of new hair growth. It is highly anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial which helps reduce things such as balding.
Rosemary and its essential oil form have been traditionally used for hundreds of years to increase circulation to the scalp and promote healthy hair growth. It is great to use on thinning and balding hair. Combine rosemary oil mixed with a bit of olive oil and apply directly to the scalp for best hair growth effect. Not only does it promote hair growth, but also helps to prevent hair from going prematurely grey and excellent for giving hair follicles the nourishment they need.
Ginseng is a popular Chinese herb that many know about for its stimulating effects on the brain and nervous system. A good news is that ginseng is great for stimulating hair growth too! It aids in scalp blood circulation and so good for hair growth that you will find this ingredient in many shampoos and hair tonics.
Ginger has a natural ability to stimulate blood flow to the scalp which is incredibly important if you want to improve the quality and health of your hair. Improved blood flow stimulates the hair follicles and results in restored hair growth. Consuming ginger also helps!
Peppermint prevents overgrowth of bacteria and fungi which is great for the scalp as it provides a healthy environment for the hair to grow. People have also been using peppermint oil for years for many treatments, including hair loss and the promotion of hair growth. Peppermint also stimulates the hair follicles and provides improved blood circulation to the scalp.
