So let’s say you’ve dealt with hair loss, which is a pretty difficult issue to figure out, and it’s been a task to combat it. There could’ve been any number of reasons for your hair fall – from age and pregnancy to nutrient deficiencies, genetic issues, stress, or simply poor dietary practices.
Let’s say you’ve reached a stage where your hair isn’t falling anymore. You want the density of your hair to return to its normal state, its original thickness. How do you go about it?
There are several dermatological treatments, great for assisting hair growth, lustre, volume, and strength. However, these treatments can sometimes be short-term, providing benefits only so far as you use the treatment.
How To Boost Hair Growth After Thinning
It’s important to seek the right treatment when you’re looking for hair growth. Your strands deserve the best nourishment, and there’s nothing like science to help you out. Dermatologists usually offer tried-and-tested methods of nourishment and growth. Hair treatments can be really useful, offering positive results almost immediately.
At the same time, if you haven’t found such treatments useful, there are many natural ways of remedying the situation.
- Massage Your Scalp Regularly
Apply a nutritional, all-natural oil and massage it into your scalp. The massage will stimulate your hair follicles and boost hair growth. Regular hair massages are also immensely effective in relaxing your body and reducing overall stress levels. Opt for a nourishing cold-pressed hair oil, such as coconut oil, sesame oil, olive oil, hemp seed oil, or avocado oil.
- Apply A Gentle Shampoo
Reduce the toxicity your hair has to deal with! Since your hair is weak, it’s best that you don’t over-expose it to harsh chemicals and synthetic additives, which affect the strength and natural balance of your scalp. Try a gentle shampoo, preferably a formulation that’s plant-based and all-natural. This would be soothing for your scalp, gentle on your strands, and wouldn’t be detrimental to the natural strength of your roots.

- Avoid Heat Styling
While it’s totally normal to style your hair with a curler or straightener, especially if it’s for a big occasion, avoid excessive heat styling. Too much heat weakens your hair and affects your hair’s natural balance of keratin, leaving your strands limp. If you’ve suffered hair loss, it may not be a great idea to opt for heat styling regularly.
- Use Natural Styling Products
We tend to depend on styling products if we’re dealing with hair loss. Styling products can go a long way to add volume and maintain density. If you’re relying on styling products, choose those formulated with all-natural ingredients. Ensuring that the product you apply on your strands doesn’t contain harsh sulfates, parabens, phthalates, silicones, or colors, goes a long way in assisting your scalp health.
The Arata hair gel infuses your hair with 100% nature-derived ingredients while styling your strands. It offers hassle-free styling with no fear of hair loss or premature greying caused by chemical ingredients. View it by clicking here.
What Lifestyle Changes Can You Make?
- Don’t Stress!
Stress is an underrated word. It follows us through our hectic lives, affects our body’s happy hormones, and has physical manifestations (such as hair loss). Bottom line: stress less. If you’re working a stressful job, take the time to unwind afterward. Try yoga, read, and spend some time every day engaging in mindful activities, like meditation and creative visualization, to calm your body down. This goes a long way in easing your body’s stress levels.
- Try A Dietary Supplement
Hair loss can be aided with the help of certain supplements, such as vitamin B12, Biotin, and Omega-3 fatty acids. Ideally, you should receive these nutrients in your food, but if you’re missing out on them, opt for a good supplement (with the help of your doctor) and figure out what suits your body.
- Eat Right
Most importantly, always remember to eat right. What we feed our bodies goes a long way in ensuring our overall health, happiness, and hormonal balance. The next time you’re in the mood to binge on junk food, take a moment to remember that these decisions affect your health, immunity, and strength.
Let’s agree, hair loss is a pretty exhausting problem. Whether you’re a man or a woman, it’s difficult to resolve and frustrating to figure out. If it’s a hormonal problem, it probably requires a lifestyle change. If it’s a medical condition, the best path forward is by treating the condition correctly with the help of a doctor or a functioning practitioner.
Fortunately, there are ways of working with your hair and returning to your natural hair growth state. We always recommend opting for gentle, plant-derived formulations when it comes to a hair care routine, and that’s why we’ve created a range of hair care products that are as safe as water to use.
