Hair Loss - Wellness Approaches


I know about this one from personal experience. When I started menopause, I started finding handfuls of hair on the floor. SCARY.

There are many reasons to lose your hair, including stress, nutrition, chemotherapy and other medications.


I've experimented with various approaches. These are the one that worked for me.

1.Use Rainbow henna on your hair; it thickens shafts and helps keep you hair on your head. Henna is a plant that can't hurt you and can even heal your hair shafts. You can use plain henna that is colorless, or choose a color. It comes in small jars that work for 2 or more applications or huge bags that are enough for a year or more. For more directions, go to http://www.rainbowresearch.com/henna_instructions.html
I've even put this mixture on scalp where there's no hair and it filled in with hair after several applications. Amazing.

2. Try apple cider vinegar to clean your scalp and stop hormones which may be causing your hair loss.

3. Use Avalon Organics Thickening Shampoo Google online or go to http://www.iherb.com/Avalon-Organics-Thickening-Shampoo-Biotin-B-Complex-Therapy-14-fl-oz-414-ml/3477#p=1&oos=1&disc=0&lc=en-US&w=avalon%20organics&rc=97&sr=null&ic=1

4. Eat 3-5 eggs every week; hardboiled or softboiled is best. Eggs provide the most complete protein and nutrition and make your hair shine and look healthy. Yes, they contain cholesterol, but they also contain lecithin, which counters the negative effects of cholesterol. Besides, the body needs and even produces it's own cholesterol.

5.Massage your scalp gently every morning and before bedtime. Not only is this soothing, it stimulates hair follicles to grow hair.

6. Don't comb or brush your hair; use your fingers to put it in place or use wide-tooth comb only.

7.Eat a good diet focused on fruits and vegetables; eliminate caffeine, sugar, dairy and meat.

8. Get down on your hands and knees on a rug or thick towel. Place your head on the floor and roll your head forward and back, side to side, and in circles

9. One at a time, start with your thumb and hold each one of your fingers with the index, middle, and ring fingers of your other hand. Hold with the right amount of pressure to feel pulses in each of your holding fingers. When the pulse is strong and the same in each finger, move to the next finger and repeat. This is not only soothing, but is a quick fix for all acupuncture/acupressure points in the body.
