Why shell out the big bucks for hair care products when you can make your own nourishing hair treatments at home? These remedies are made with natural, organic ingredients that you can pick up at any health food store, and they’ll help to keep your scalp healthy while promoting new hair growth to fill in any thinning or baldness that you may have.
1. Aloe Vera Scalp and Hair Mask
The enzymes in aloe vera naturally clear away the hard oil plugs that can clog your hair follicles and keep your hair from thriving. Aloe vera is also a natural source of salicylic acid, which reduces scalp inflammation (which may be contributing to your thinning hair) and clears away dead skin cells.
Take one aloe vera stem and cut it in half, then scoop out 2 tablespoons of the clear gel.
Massage it into your scalp, focusing on the root of your hair and not the ends of your hair.
Let it soak in for a minimum of two hours, then rinse it off. Repeat the hair mask treatment at least twice a week.
2. Ginseng Conditioner
Ginseng reinvigorates your scalp and improves blood flow, so your hair follicles get more of the nutrients they need to stay alive and grow lots of healthy strands of hair. If you want to prevent the follicle death that leads to permanent hair loss, try this natural conditioner.
You’ll need a couple tablespoons of ginseng essential oils. Mix with a couple tablespoons of olive oil, then massage it into your scalp.
Wrap your head with a towel to avoid getting the oil on your clothes or body. Rinse it out after 30 minutes with warm water, but do not shampoo.
Repeat once a week.
