Ayurvedic Home Remedies for Baldness

Baldness, that one factor which puts down the confidence of thousands has been taking over the world rapidly. All thanks to the chemical-loaded shampoos that burn a hole in our pockets and the vegetables and fruits that only have the side effects of fertilizers and no nutrients anymore! If you have been through a baldness condition, or currently are under the influence of the personality “putting down” factor, then you must try these home remedies for baldness for prevention and lifetime care.

1. Let’s start with the time treasured oil massages – an Ayurvedic remedy for hair loss that’s most trustable. Ayurveda recommends the use of cold pressed and non-refined organic hair oils (castor oil, coconut oil, olive oil, almond oil etc.) that have to be massaged over your scalp in nice rhythmic touches, so that your scalp is relaxed and healthy. Thereby, the new hair that shoots out of your scalp will prove to be healthy and strong. You must follow an oiling routine at least once a week for maximum benefits.

2. The next on the effective Ayurvedic treatment for baldness is fenugreek seeds. You will have to soak a handful of fenugreek seeds in plain water overnight and grind the whole mixture into a fine paste. You could also stir in a teaspoon of curd for shiny hair growth. Apply this pack on your scalp and the remains on the lengths of your hair. Fenugreek boosts hair growth and nurtures every hair.

3. You could also lay your hands on onion juice for faster hair growth. Peel and chop an onion. You could also use the shallots variety for this Ayurvedic treatment for baldness. Add the chopped onions to your blender and filter out the onion juice. If you have a dry and damaged hair texture, then add in a teaspoon of coconut oil to the juice. Rub this juice on your scalp and hair and let it sit for at least 30-40 minutes before you give your hair a thorough wash. You could follow it with conditioner if you prefer to. The sulphur content in onions will not only stimulate new hair growth from your scalp but will also keep scalp infections at bay.

4. Coconut milk is also a time treasured home remedy for baldness. You could either go for the store bought ones, or if you are lucky to find coconuts in your place, you just have to chop out the flesh and add it to your blender. Filter out the juice and your fresh batch of coconut milk is ready to go on your head. Massage your scalp with coconut milk and leave it for 30-40 minutes before you rinse your hair with regular shampoo. You will find that your hair grows sooner, baldness is at bay and the new hair is hale and healthy.

5. Indian gooseberry, arita and shikakhai are also age old home remedies for baldness. Visit any Indian organic store and you’ll get a herbal powder that contains Indian gooseberry, arita and shikakhai. Our ancestors used this DIY powder as their shampoo and had the most lustrous hair out there! You could use this mixture once a week; either as a pack or as a shampoo rinse after you’ve oiled your hair. These herbs stimulate new hair growth and prevent baldness.

6. Yoghurt or curd is a mandatory part of the balanced Indian meal. Both the elders and youngsters in India, ensure that they have curd rice at least once or twice a week, or even daily. Curd contains a lot of protein and gut-friendly bacteria. Proteins are good for the hair and skin, while the bacteria enable hassle-free digestion. So, if you want hair that’s thick, healthy and shiny without baldness being an issue, do include yoghurt in your diet regimen. You could also have a cup of yoghurt just after your meal for its better absorption and effect.
