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.
Thank You Dr. Axe. I appreciate some of the info in your articles and all the help about the essential oils. However my diet for the past 4 years has been everything you mention for getting hair back and I even purchased a program from another site and all of it is a total waste of time and money. Nothing worked for my hair. Hair loss is a very personal thing for many men and it is certainly a way to get attention by mentioning that you can reverse it. So many scams. Maybe it is a heredity issue but they all say that doesn’t matter..This stuff does NOTHING for my hair..As I mentioned I have been on this diet for over 4 years to help heal prostate cancer and I recently added your Rosemary and cedarwood for the past 6 months and NO difference..Also..I have NEVER heard from anyone at all that this has worked for them..You would think that if something really worked people and their friends would certainly want to let them know…NOT the case..never heard anything good about any hair rejuvination products..NEVER
Anyway, I realize that many men my age or younger suffer from hair loss but I find myself really distraught about how I look and this affects my self confidence and my mood almost on a daily basis. I really would like to know if indeed there is a nutritional regiment that you could develop that I could follow that really would help with my thinning hair.
Though not vitamins, two other products can help improve hair growth. Rosemary essential oil used topically can naturally thicken hair, as can aloe vera juice and gel. Using these along with the above vitamins for hair growth, and you’re sure to see fuller, thicker hair.
Hi Julia, sorry to hear that. For the time being I would try not to concentrate on hair growth and more about treating your hair well and getting it back to good health. I would eat plenty of protein-rich foods, treat your hair to a weekly hair mask on the ends and gentle scalp massage. Try not to use any heated tools on your hair, and wash it using lukewarm water – avoid burning hot water – and your hair should be feeling better soon.
Until then, one other great way to treat baldness is to embrace it, and choose the shaved head look. Research suggests this strategy could score you some serious street cred: people tend to assess smooth-headed baldies as both stronger and taller than their hair-brained counterparts.
I started eating Chia seeds and I have been amazed at how thick my hair has come in at the age of 56. 2 TBLS. a day soaked in liquid first. Read on the web all the wonderful things Chia seeds can do! IT’S ALL TRUE!!
Hair is made up of keratin and dead skin cells. While there’s no direct method to make your hair grow faster overnight, there are steps you can take to keep your hair healthy and long. Talk to your doctor before trying supplements such as biotin, keratin, or other nutritional supplements. They may interact with medications and cause unintended side effects.
For dry styling, I recommend using a dry texture spray like Bumble and bumble’s Dryspun or Design Me’s Puff.ME Light. This will give life and movement to the hair without it feeling too heavy. You can complete the look with a soft hold hairspray like Bumble and bumble’s Spray De Mode.
This style of bob is meant to be styled daily and is not meant for wash and go. It is great for anyone trying to grow out a shorter cut or someone wanting to try out short hairstyles, but isn’t ready to commit to a pixie hairstyle!
Great article Anushka, Thanks for sharing such a great tips to make our hair grow faster. Your article provides the informative content about how actually hair grows and the phases of hair production. I appreciate your article. I am also having a website named Miemani which is the best hair repair salon in the East London. It offers different hair styles, and hair repair services at the affordable price.
Hi there, I’m so sorry to hear you’re feeling this way. Don’t worry, it will grow back! If you do the inversion method just once a month, but you can continue with the rest of the tips. Protein is excellent for healthy hair.
Alopecia Areata — Alopecia areata is considered an autoimmune disease in which the immune system mistakenly attacks the hair follicles. The effected hair follicles become small and drastically slow down hair production. Researchers believe that some type of trigger, such as a virus or vitamin deficiency, may bring on the attack. (16)
You can also make a hydrating hair mask by mixing two tablespoons of wheatgerm oil with half of a ripe mashed avocado. Apply this hair mask on freshly shampooed hair and allow it to sit for at least 20 minutes.
I had to cut my hair really short cause I bleached my hair way to much and it got stretchy but now I want my hair to grow at least 5 inches if I do all of the things you said in this article how long would it take to grow my hair 5 inches
Some blogs may recommend natural products and the ‘no-poo’ method, which involves cutting out all haircare and relying on baking soda to clean your hair. I am a big fan of Coconut Oil and Olive Oil as both beauty and haircare products, but I found the Lee Stafford range to really work. Coupled with the other elements, I noticed hair growth, new hair growth and also my hair was stronger and shinier than ever.
Hi Clare, You need to massage the oil into the roots of your hair to reap the full effects. It’s best to leave the oil on for a while in order to allow it to penetrate your hair follicles properly. I hope this helps 🙂
I have rapid hair fall since 2months I tried eggs but use of egg led to more hair loss what should I do?? M not getting any option m making two plates even but my hair is falling down rapidly and I m 15 years old what should i do pls suggest
Hair follicles are highly sensitive to hormones, and vitamin D is a hormone that plays an important role in calcium homeostasis, immune regulation and cell growth differentiation. In the scientific world, it’s well-known that alopecia areata is commonly found in patients with vitamin D deficiency, vitamin D-resistant rickets or vitamin D receptor mutation. (9)
Adopting the ayurvedic beauty practice of Bhringraj oil could be beneficial, too. Bhringraj is oil made of Eclipta Alba and sesame, which can be bought at an Indian store or can also be made at home. Eclipta Alba has been used for centuries and in studies has been shown to be an effective growth promoter.
Hi Laura, put your head forwards and tip it so your head is quite low to the ground. You can also do this while sitting down. If you start to feel unwell or dizzy at any point then slowly come back up.
Choose organic products or products made with natural oils and soap agents. Check www.thegoodguide.com for detailed information about different hair products and which ones are better to use for those concerned about hair loss.
will all of these things work well enough to get may hair 10 inches longer in less then a year? My graduation is coming next year and my hair is only up to my shoulders. i would like it to be 10 inches longer so i can make my hair style look beautiful for grad. Thank you for the tips 🙂
Hi Beth, it really depends on how thick and long your hair is. I use around half a teaspoon and I have mid-length hair to my shoulders. A little goes a long way though so I would just add a few drops/amounts at a time and massage in. You can always add more.
If you guys want really thick hair in about 2 months (depending on your hair composition like porosity, texture, and oil levels) I suggest using herbs like rosemary, powdered oak, and nutmeg for oily hair, oils like cactus oil, castor oil, olive oil, and sesame oil for dry hair, and a hair mask of 1 egg white, full onion, and 2 tbs olive oil blended together for normal hair!

I am 13, I need to grow out my hair. But I hear many people have acne issues due to biotin. Acne isn’t really a problem for me, but I hate it so muuucccchhhhhh. I am also a bit worried to use coconut oil for the inversion method because of my age my skin is oily already. Any ideas?
