Sure, almost everyone who is follicly challenged has been offered sage and usually unfounded advice on how to replace what they’ve lost on top. Too often, these “helpful” words seem like they’re being delivered by a shaky traveling medicine man and should be better left unheeded. That’s probably wise, but it doesn’t mean there aren’t natural ways to support healthy hair and maybe even spur new growth. WellWell has pulled together some of the most popular natural treatments. Can we guarantee any or all of these will work? No, but they are all worth exploring and come without the aid of a carnival barker’s antics.
Don’t cry over onion juice. Instead, maybe take a look and support your hair. It is loaded with lots of minerals and is noted for dietary sulfur, which is essential for the production of enzymes and proteins. All this this will help support thicker and stronger hair growth.
Aloe vera is a reputed winner when it comes to stopping hair loss because it helps revitalized damaged scalps, creating a better environment to for hair to support itself. Aloe is also great at cleaning up sebum, an oil that harms follicles and thwarts hair from growing back once it’s lost. Better yet. Aloe vera is simple to use by massaging in pure gel or even using a shampoo with aloe vera.

It also contains lots of vitamins and minerals required for hair growth. These include Vitamins B & E, Amino Acids and antioxidants.
Anyone exploring home-based hair remedies is likely to come across the reputed wonders of coconut oil. It is reported to be a boon for building up thinning hair.

Ginseng supplements supposedly can help hair grow by stimulating their follicles. But before taking these supplements, make sure to check if you’re suspectable to any possible side effects.
Vodka may actually be a tonic. It’s low pH and has astringent properties that make it a great hair care product. Sadly though the treatment calls for mixing it with water and running it through your hair. Drinking it won’t do you hair any good that anyone knows about. But if applied properly, it can strengthen hair follicles, balance the scalp’s pH levels, reduce sebum production, boost scalp help and prevent frizzy hair by sealing cuticles.
Applying amla or Indian gooseberry is reported to be one of the best ways to generate thicker hair. It supports dermal papilla cells and fosters hair growth by extending your natural growth phase. It also comes loaded with antioxidants and Vitamin C, which helps block free radicals from causing hair damage and loss.
