Is your hair thinning or looking brittle and less shiny than normal? You are not alone!
Hair health is sometimes hard to keep up on, and it can be difficult to know which products/treatments to use for your hair type. Many products on the market today can actually be detrimental to your overall hair health. It is important to pay attention to the ingredients on the outside label to ensure that what you are putting on your hair is healthy.
Below you will find the top 4 hair loss treatments you can use on your damaged and/or thinning hair. Your hair will be thriving in no time.
Hair Loss Treatments
1.) Laser Caps
Laser caps are a medical device that is FDA-cleared to regrow the hair on men and women’s scalps successfully. These caps are designed with low level light therapy (LLLT) technology to stimulate blood flow in the scalp and reduce inflammation. The necessary vitamins, minerals, and oxygen levels can be transported to the scalp tissue by stimulating blood flow. This, in turn, will promote new and healthy hair growth from the hair follicles.
This medical device can be worn discreetly and hidden under a baseball cap. It is completely portable so that treatments can be done whenever and wherever is convenient for the user. These affordable devices have become a popular hair growth option on the market today.
2.) Hair Masks
Hair masks are an easy at-home treatment to help keep your hair strong and healthy. Depending on the state your hair is in will depend on which mask treatment you want to do. There are specific recipes for each hair type and what you want to achieve.
You can round up most ingredients from items already in your house/kitchen. However, if you need to purchase some of them, you typically do not need many ingredients for one treatment. This allows the ingredients to last for long periods of time, making it an affordable hair growth investment. I will post a popular, simple hair growth mask recipe below.
This mask is specifically intended for individuals looking to increase their hair growth. You will need:
- Coconut Oil
Use equal parts of each ingredient and mix them. Apply to your whole head of hair, from the scalp to the ends. Leave this mask on for approximately 30-minutes and rinse with shampoo and conditioner. For best results, repeat once per week.
3.) Essential Oils
Essential oils can be key when trying to improve the health of your hair. These natural oils have so many powerful effects that can positively affect your hair. Some of the best essential oils for hair growth include peppermint, coconut, lemongrass, tea-tree, and castor.
These essential oils have stimulating properties that can help promote new hair growth, kill harmful bacteria on the scalp, moisturize the hair follicles, and much more. Most (if not all) of these essential oils can be found at a local grocery store. If not, they can easily be ordered online from multiple websites.
Make sure you research how to use these essential oils best and how long they need to be left on your scalp for the best results.
4.) Protein Diet
Your diet is an essential part of your hair health. Believe it or not, it’s not just your body that needs the proper vitamins and nutrients to survive, but your hair needs them too! Some of the best foods you can incorporate into your everyday diet are proteins. This is because your hair is largely made up of protein and needs it to remain strong and healthy.
Some of the best foods that contain protein for your hair are meats, fish, eggs, spinach, vegetables, nuts, grains, and seeds.
Now that you know the top 4 hair loss treatments, you can begin implementing them into your weekly routine. It may be good to test them out before you start using them religiously. This way, you can see which one you like the best and then track your results. You may find that only one works best for you, but some may find that all 3 used in conjunction with one another produce the best hair growth results.
