To fight free radical damage and protect the hair from aging, fill up on vitamin C foods like oranges, red peppers, kale, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, strawberries, grapefruit and kiwi. If you need supplementation, take 500–1,000 milligrams of vitamin C twice daily as an antioxidant.
Once a week, I apply a DIY protein mask. To try it, combine an egg white, 1 tablespoon of castor oil, half a banana, 1 tablespoon of honey, and 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt. Mash the ingredients together into a paste-like consistency and apply it to the entire scalp and hair. Leave on for 30 minutes or longer under a warm head bonnet and towel and rinse with warm water and a very small amount of a mild pH balanced shampoo.
Hi Ammaarah, The best thing about hair, is that it almost always grows back, so don’t fret! You have said your hair is dry, so first and foremost I would recommend a coconut oil treatment to renourish it and get it looking and feeling healthy again. Secondly, I would advise the inversion method to encourage hair growth. Do these things, and within a few months your hair should look better than ever! I hope this helps 🙂
Ultimately, balding is a part of life, because it’s a part of death. Hair-loss treatments and replacements speak to a grim side of us that seeks immortality, of wanting to be young forever. Growing old is just as important in life as being young. In fact, it may be more important, and being comfortable with your body as it ages is a massive part of that.
Hi Mastuh. We don’t have any experience with Sulfur 8, so can’t advise on this. We prefer other natural methods, such as the inversion method and using coconut oil. Please follow the instructions in the blog post for guidance using the inversion method. I hope this helps 🙂
I’m african and I have a 4B hair type. I”ve.seen the inversion method somewhere some time ago when i had a big chop and i’ve tried it. It really worked. I did mine for.4 minutes everyday, sometimes with coconut oil and sometimes with olive oil and i use Amla hair oil sometimes also. I grew up to 1-1.5 Inches per week. I’ve left it for a while now and i.think i’ll get back to it asap. Thanks for this post Anu

Eat omega-3 foods like salmon, mackerel, tuna, white fish, sardines, egg yolks, walnuts, hemp seeds and natto to reduce inflammation and balance hormones. If you don’t eat enough omega-3 foods, take one to two capsules or one tablespoon of a top-notch fish oil supplement to help reduce inflammation that causes hair disorders. If you already take blood-thinning medications, including aspirin, speak to your health care provider before using fish oil because it may increase bleeding.

I lost a lot of my natural curls and hair, after internal bleeding, gallstones and just being sick. After throwing away my blow dryer and air dryer my hair over night, it started growing in again. The new undergrowth has returned curly but the rest is wavy at most… any tips to getting my curl back w/o perms and chemicals? It has been almost 2yrs, my hair is almost 3ft. Long
“Scalp reduction is to cut balding scalp out and suture the remaining skin together to reduce the bald area,” Kaufman says. “After several of these, you have a smaller area to transplant. But you leave a scar that is visible and needs to be transplanted into to be invisible.”
Allow your hair to grow in its natural texture and color. Avoid dyes, highlights and chemical treatments. Any type of chemical applied to your hair will damage it and dry it out. Even natural hair lightening techniques, like using lemon juice, can cause your hair to fray.

Honey should be added to everything you create for a DIY mixture. NEVER, EVER , leave it out. It’s like liquid to a very solid, healthy meal. If you truly want to know what’s so great about honey, go to ‘Health Benefits of Honey on Your Face’ by searching it on Google, of course.
Women who are pregnant may feel that their hair is actually growing faster. And women who have just had a baby may feel like they are losing their hair at a faster rate than normal. This is because during pregnancy, the hormone estrogen actually causes a woman to have a higher ratio of hair follicles in the growing phase. After the baby is born, hair follicles return to the “resting” phase, making it appear as if they are shedding hair.

But aloe vera juice is also great for thickening your hair, so you’ll see a lot of natural hair shampoos and conditioners today that have aloe vera in the ingredients. Aloe vera has tons of vitamins and minerals that are present keep your hair strong and healthy. Because of aloe vera’s antibacterial and antifungal properties, it also helps with dandruff, and the gel’s enzymes can rid the scalp of dead cells and promote the regeneration of skin tissue around the hair follicles.
Egg is great for hair and skin and it’s got everything you need to build up the proteins in your hair to keep it thicker and promote new hair growth. Protein is one of the best things you can give your hair to make it stronger, thicker, and looking its best. If there is only one remedy you use to promote thicker hair, let this be it.
The Inversion method. Haha. I did not realize at first how much of an afro it will give you if you massage your scalp for 5 minutes when you have only have 4.5 inches of curly hair. My question is it better to massage it when wet, dry or with oils?

Everyone’s body is different, but most people should be able to comfortably wash their hair two to three times a week without it getting too oily. If your hair is naturally quite oily, you might want to wash it three to four times a week instead.
“The best candidate for hair restoration surgery has had hair loss for a number of years but has stabilized and is not losing more hair quickly,” Kaufman says. “A person needs to have realistic expectations of what can be done to give them a natural appearing hair line.”
Hi maria..I just read your question about where to find amla in US. I too am in US and I buy it from any local Indian/Pakistani (ethnic) grocer/store. You can easily find different brands of amla oil, also whole dried amla and amla powder as well. You can include all of this in your hair care regimen. Hope this helps.
DR. Axe. I need to thank you for a article you published 3-4 months ago on hair loss. Before reading your article, I tried every supplement out there. Nothing helped. I always had thick hair and for about a year the fallout loss was getting so bad I thought I would have nothing left at all. I hope some of the guys here try what has worked for me. I use Rosemary Oil (organic) mixed with Green Tea before I go to bed.(hour or 2 before). I drink 2 cups and it works for me. During the day I take Biotin and Zinc also. Guys, try this and let us know if it worked for you also.
Any time i use virgin coconut oil on either my hair or scalp..my hair fall out in lumps. I think my fine hair cannot handle oild. I have tried using different oils on and off each time they shed like crazy.
Hi Selena. Sorry to hear about your suffering with tonsil cancer. It’s great to hear you’re on the mend! You could also try the inversion method to stimulate hair growth. Regrowth hair product also sounds like a good idea. Do let us know how you get on! Thanks, Steph
