Did you know that your hair grows around 0.5 inches (1.25 cm) per month and 6 inches (15 cm) per year? How fast it grows depends on factors like age, health, genetics, and diet.
Although you can’t change factors like age and genetics, diet is one thing you have control over. In fact, consuming a diet lacking the right nutrients can lead to hair loss. To encourage hair growth, you can eat a diet rich in nuts, lentils, and lean meats. To improve your scalp’s health, try and include foods that are naturally rich in vitamin A (dark leafy greens and sweet potatoes), vitamin C (citrus fruits), iron (lean red meats), and omega-3 fatty acids (flaxseeds and avocados) in your daily diet.
The increased amount of pollution in the environment and a stressful lifestyle are few other reasons to blame for the struggle every person is experiencing nowadays to keep more hair on the head rather than on the hairbrush. Therefore, managing stress, keeping your scalp clean by frequently washing it and covering your tresses while traveling out in polluted areas can help you keep your hair and scalp healthy.
On top of it, the amount of harsh chemical filled hair care and styling products we use are often the hidden culprits behind all our hair issues, including hair fall and lack of hair volume. So, it is only wise to stop or at least limit the use of chemicals on your hair. It might not show any drastic change in a day or a few weeks, but in the long run it is surely going to help.
Besides, there are also some effective natural treatments that you can take to improve the volume of your hair and to boost the growth of new hair. Homeopathy is one of those treatments which can help you treat all your hair loss issues from the root. It is an age-old science backed with scientific beliefs and proven results. Homeopathic medicines for hair loss such as Thuja Occidentalis or Sabal serrulata have been used for hair fall treatment in homeopathy for over 100 years. International clinical studies have proven that the two homeopathic medicines cited are natural DHT-inhibitors, i.e., they can control hair loss caused by DHT.
It was also seen in a study conducted in Scotland that 90 per cent of patients with patchy hair loss opted for homeopathy as the first choice of hair fall treatment. Homeopathy actually helps to slow down the progression of the bald patches and fill them up with new hair. A complete recovery is possible in most cases. Homeopathic medicines for hair loss also aim at strengthening the entire body, so as a result you will get not only the thick curls but a beautiful skin, healthy nails and an active immune system.
