Hair fall is caused by a variety of factors, ranging from poor nutrition, hormonal changes, aging, heredity, and stress. Illnesses like typhoid, cancer, and jaundice can bring about hair loss due to chemotherapy and medications. Other reasons for hair fall or hair loss include fungal infections and disease, over styling, pregnancy, Vitamin B deficiency, excessive vitamin A, PCOS or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, and abrupt weight loss.

There are all kinds of shampoos and hair treatments available commercially, some of which may contain harmful ingredients that could further add to the damage instead of cure the problem. Thankfully, nature has blessed us with all kinds of hair loss cures that are not only convenient and easily accessible, but safe and healthy as well.

Massaging with Oil

Oils can do wonders to the hair- coconut oil, mustard oil, almond oil, lavender oil, and jojoba oil. Coconut oil is a great agent to control hair fall, while jojoba oil helps replace sebum in the scalp, thus controlling dandruff. To use oil for hair, heat the oil until it is lukewarm. Massage it on the scalp for a few minutes every day. This practice helps stimulate blood flow to the scalp.

Aloe Vera

Countless research has proven aloe vera's effectiveness in curing not only hair loss, but all kinds of hair and skin problems. In fact, a number of commercially-produced shampoos, conditioners, and hair treatments contain aloe vera. To use aloe minus the harsh shampoos, apply aloe gel to the scalp to prevent irritation, infection, and dryness which can trigger hair loss. Aloe has the power to balance the scalp's pH levels.

Neem

Neem is an herb that is a go-to for beauty and health needs. It has an astringent quality that is great for hair problems such as dandruff, lice, and hair fall. To use this powerful herb as a hair fall remedy, simply boil neem leaves then allow it to cool. Rinse hair with the neem water once a week.
