Hair Loss Home Remedies
Hair loss can happen for many reasons, whether temporary or permanent. Genetics, stress, or a bad diet could all contribute to the loss of hair. When you first notice that your hair is falling out or thinning, it can be tempting to run out and spend a fortune on chemical-laden store remedies that may or may not work. Before going to that extreme, however, try out these time-proven home remedies.
Almond & Rosemary
Combining a quarter cup of all-natural almond oil with a few drops of essential rosemary oil can have your hair looking healthy again. Packed with nutrients, these oils can help de-stress your roots, clean your scalp, and (when massaged into the scalp) stimulates under-developed hair follicles to grow. To use these remedy:
- Mix 1/4 cup of all-natural almond oil with a few drops of essentially rosemary oil.
- Warm just slightly, to around room temperature.
- Take a little oil in your hands at a time and massage into your scalp for around 10 minutes.
- Leave oil for an additional 20 minutes to help penetrate the follicles.
- Rinse thoroughly, then wash your hair as usual.
Onion Juice & Aloe Vera
While it may not smell all that great, onion juice is filled with things your hair needs. Onions, in fact, have been used in a multitude of ailments throughout history - everything from tooth aches to skin rashes. Aloe Vera is another one of those cure-alls no home should be without. When you combine the two, the results are amazing. To use this remedy:
- Grate and strain one onion to extract the juice
- Mix 3 tablespoons onion juice, 2 tablespoons Aloe Vera gel, and 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Pour the mixture onto your scalp and rub in thoroughly
- All to sit for 30 minutes to an hour

Yucca is a type of plant that Native Americans have historically used for food, medicine, clothing, beauty products, and so much more. The fibrous plant is incredibly versatile, and can be found in most grocery stores. If your local grocer doesn't have it, or can't order it in, check out a local health store. To use this remedy:
- Peel off the brown outside layer of the Yucca root
- Use a hammer or other heavy object and smash the hard root into pieces
- Take a piece and run it under water, where it will lather up like soap
- Use the soapy root to wash your hair
- Rinse thoroughly, and then condition
