3 Natural Remedies for Thinning Hair
We all want full, thick heads of hair. That’s probably why we spend billions and billions of dollars each year on costly hair therapies, products, and even hair replacement surgeries!
But there are natural remedies for thinning hair, so you “don’t have to give in to the thin”.
Here are our three favorites. But, keep in mind, there’s no magic bullet to cure thinning hair or even hair loss. The best remedies are combinations of natural products with healthy lifestyle choices, so that’s what we’ll focus on here.
And don’t worry, we’ll share with you why, from a scientific standpoint, making these changes is so important to slow down or stop hair thinning.
#1 Destress and Sleep in!
Hair thinning and loss is not always genetic. It can come from many outside sources, the most prominent of these is stress. Excess stress can cause hair follicles to enter a resting phase that slows or shuts down growth. If the stress is consistent, it can even cause these follicles to fall out.
The solution is very simple. Get more rest and find ways to destress your life. Try a nice cup of relaxing passionflower tea, or take melatonin at night to help support your body’s natural sleep cycles.
We listed this as the #1 natural remedy for thinning hair because it’s by far the most important. Getting a good night’s sleep and reducing stress are going to positively affect nearly every single aspect of your health. If you aren’t committed to rest & destress, it’s going to be very hard for any other remedy to be effective.
#2 Balance your Hormones
Hair thinning and loss can also be caused by hormonal changes in the body, or by excess amounts of estrogen or testosterone. Many of these changes are caused by the natural aging process, but others are caused by stress, lack of sleep, lack of exercise, and a poor diet.
Making sure you are resting and destressing will go a long way to bringing your body back into balance hormonally, but you can also turn to natural remedies like Ashwagandha to help.
Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb which can help bring your body back into a more balanced homeostasis. In particular, it can help lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which has been linked to hair thinning and loss. (1)
#3 Give your Body the Nutrition it Needs for Better Hair.
Sometimes hair thinning and loss has nothing to do with genetics and stress, and everything to do with a poor diet low in the micronutrients that our bodies need to create full, thick, healthy hair.
This is where changes in your diet, combined with supplementation could make a big difference.
Do you have a great multivitamin? Antioxidants, vitamins, and micronutrients are all important, not only for hair growth, but for helping your body come back to balance and be strong enough to fight infection and disease. A great multivitamin is the first step to making sure your body has the nutrients it needs for better hair.
Are you getting enough biotin and collagen? Biotin is a B vitamin that supports keratin production. Keratin is the protein that makes up your hair, skin, and nails. Collagen is a protein vital to healthy skin, bones, joints, and hair. Both biotin and collagen can be taken as supplements, and we offer them as part of a Healthy Together Pack.
