How to Regrow Your Hair Using Natural Methods

I spent a lot of money on ineffective hair-loss treatments before discovering a natural and effective method from a Ayurvedic doctor.

Don't be swindled by expensive products and false promises!

Don't be swindled by expensive products and false promises!

Are you worried about hair loss? Are you tired of searching the internet for a treatment method that works? I know from experience that hair loss can be a blow to your confidence.

Don’t worry. There are many natural and medical treatments. Read about the causes, treatments, a recipe for homemade Rogaine, and my personal experiences below.

My Own Experience With Hair Loss and What I Did About It

I first would like to share with you my experience with my own hair. When I was in school I used to apply lots of gel on my hair to set it like rock-hard thorns. I applied gel continuously for five or six years, and when I was in higher secondary school, I was shocked to see that my hair was starting to fall out easily. I went to the pharmacy and asked them if they had any kind of hair loss treatment oil or something like it. They gave me some oil costing Rs 250. I applied it, but nothing happened—it was no more effective than using coconut oil.

Sometimes when I touched my hair or used a comb, it would be painful. I bought a hundred products online that told me, "Order this bottle and gain hair in one week," or "Order this ebook; it contains healthy diet for your hair." None were effective. I lost much of my hair. The middle of my head was particularly bad, and my friends began saying things like, "I can see your bald spot." I was so lost as to what to do that I started surfing on net again. Again, nothing helped me.

Suddenly one of my friends fell sick. And guess what? His hair started falling out. The doctor told him that it’s some kind of disease, and it resulted in small bald spots on his head. He also tried many cures, but nothing happened. After two months, someone took him to an Ayurvedic doctor. The doctor gave him two roots and told him to rub them with licorice water to make a fine paste and then to apply it to his head.

He did exactly what he had been told. In 10 days, small baby hairs started coming in on his head, and with time his full head was restored. I told him I also wanted those roots, so he took me to the Ayurvedic doctor. The doctor gave me two roots and told me to put water and licorice root in a glass, then use that water to grind both roots against a hard stone and make a fine paste of them to apply to my head. I followed his directions precisely, and applied the paste to my hair daily. My hair became thick, silky, and strong after washing my head with that paste. More importantly, my hair began growing back. An amazing hair-regaining recipe I had never heard before was restoring my hair thanks to that doctor.

Causes of Hair Loss

To cure your hair loss it is necessary to examine what is causing it in the first place. Treating the cause will cure your hair loss.

There are many causes ranging from vitamin deficiencies to hormone changes. Stress, lack of sleep, smoking, thyroid problems, and menopause are all causes. Certain hair products and hair styles, such as pulling hair back too tightly, can also lead to hair loss. There is no cure for menopause or old age (though there are still a few medical ways you can slow down the hair loss that comes with them), but if anything else is causing your thinning locks, therein lies the cure.

You can't go wrong with green vegetables when it comes to combating hair loss.

Natural Treatments for Hair Loss


If you are experiencing hair loss, the very first thing you should do is examine your lifestyle. Have your sleep or stress levels suddenly changed? If so, that may be the root of your problem.

Try to readjust your schedule. Try meditation if it's difficult to unwind after work or before going to bed. Carve out 10 minutes that are absolutely to yourself. Set your phone to silent and put it in a different room. Then, with the door closed to any distractions, sit down comfortably, cross-legged if you can. Close your eyes and clear your mind, focusing in on your breath as it flows in and out of your lungs. If you are a visual person, imagine that air is a color, and that you can see it filling up and emptying out of your body. If any other thoughts—be they from your personal life, your work life, or something else—start to cross your mind, consciously let them go and return your thoughts to your breathing.

Foods that Prevent Hair Loss

If you are getting enough sleep and are not experiencing stress, consider your diet. Are you getting all of your nutrients?

Iron, protein, and omega-3 deficiencies have all been linked to hair loss. On top of that, vitamins and minerals are necessary for healthy hair follicles and scalp, both of which will keep you hair healthy and decrease hair breakage.

General Diet Tips for Healthy Hair

  • Web MD recommends eating 6 to 10 servings of vegetables daily.
  • Eat two to four servings of fruit daily.
  • Get enough protein by consuming two to three servings of meat a day or four to five servings of dairy and beans. Keep in mind that a serving of meat is three ounces which is no larger than the size of your cell phone.
  • Eat foods rich in omega-3 such as eggs, nuts, seeds, and fish.
  • Mix it up! Don't eat the same foods every day. A variety will ensure that you get all of the vitamins and minerals that you need.
  • Add a multivitamin to your daily routine. Eat it with food to increase absorption.

Effect of Smoking and Drug Use on Hair Loss

According to research by the US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health smoking is related to hair loss and baldness. Other drugs have a similar correlation. If you are taking prescription medicine, consult your doctor or check the side effects to see if that could be a cause of your hair loss.

Foods That Contribute to Healthy Hair

Need ideas for specific foods? All of the foods below have been recommended for hair. If you eat these regularly, you will natural treat any deficiencies that may be causing your hair loss.

  • Salmon, sardines, trout, and mackerel: All of these fish will provide protein, vitamin D, and omega-3. Your body cannot create the fatty acids found in omega-3 on its own, and those fatty acids make up 3% of your hair shaft and are also found in the skin on your scalp, so you need to eat them somewhere!
  • Avocado, pumpkin seeds, and walnuts: These foods are rich in omega-3 and don't have the risk of mercury inherent in some of the bigger fish. They are boons to vegetarians because they need omega-3 fatty acids for their hair as well. All of these foods also have zinc, the lack of which can lead to hair loss.
  • Oysters: Oysters are extremely rich in zinc, iron, and protein. Just six oysters have 220% of your daily value of zinc, 33% of your daily value of iron, and eight grams of protein.
  • Sweet potatoes and carrots: These vegetables contain vitamin A which is crucial for the health of your scalp. Deficiencies in vitamin A can even lead to dandruff.
  • Eggs: Eggs have protein, zinc, selenium, sulfur, and iron. Iron is one of the most common deficiencies that lead to hair loss in premenopausal women (who lose some every month with their menstrual cycle), so the importance of these minerals cannot be overstated.
  • Spinach and other leafy greens: These vegetables are important for their iron in addition to other minerals. They also have less cholesterol than animal-based sources.

Homemade Natural Rogaine Hair-Loss Treatment Recipe

This recipe does not contain minoxidil, but worked for my own hair loss.


  • Water
  • Licorice
  • Burdock Root
  • Dandelion Root


  1. Rub licorice in a glass, and fill it halfway with water.
  2. Rub the burdock and dandelion root against a stone to make a fine paste.
  3. Mix the paste with the licorice water, and apply it to your head.
  4. Leave paste on scalp for whole day it will stick to your head like white cement. Don't wash your head until it's necessary. I used to apply it in the mornings and took it off in the evenings.

Medical Treatments for Hair Loss

If the natural treatments above do not work, it is time to consult a doctor. Hair loss can be a side effect of a serious medical condition such as thyroid problems or diabetes. Doctors will also run a blood test to definitively rule out any deficiencies.

If your hair loss is not caused by lifestyle, diet, or disease, then it is probably due to changes in your hormones related to aging. There are two medicines that can help treat this type of hair loss:

  • Rogaine (minoxidil): Rogaine is an over-the-counter medication that is applied to the scalp. It works best on hair that has just begun to thin. According to Web MD, "[more] than 50% of users claim that it can thicken hair and slow hair loss." Once you begin using Rogaine, you must continue to use it indefinitely in order to maintain its effects. If you go this route, Costco sells minoxidil at a significantly lower price than most pharmacies.
  • Propecia (finasteride): Propecia is a pill that can treat more developed hair loss in men. It works by blocking the hormones that cause hair loss from reaching the skin. Consult your doctor before taking Propecia.

I have always wanted to tell others about these medicinal roots, but I didn't actually know the names them. At last I have discovered the ingredients, and now you can get the recipe for free!

Male pattern hairloss (androgenic alopecia-AGA) is the main type of hairloss in men (~90%), which is caused by combined effect of DHT hormone+genetic susceptibility. Other types of hairloss may be due to health condition, diet, stress, chemical exposure, infection, etc.

In case of pattern hairloss(AGA) only treatment is finasteride and minoxidil with limited (30-40%) success rate. But these drugs are worse than poison to destroy your complete health. So, please never ever touch finasteride! Though it may stop hairloss but it will surely transform you from a male to a female in 1/2 years time.

Rest all other shampoo, oil, serum, supplement,etc are just worthless-no matter how costly they are or which international brand they belong. Hair transplant(costly option) is not advisable as it produces very limited result and for a short time (4/5years max.). Transplanted hair can never bring the original hair density and they even start to fall after 4/5 years. Then repetitive surgery is needed again. So there is no hope for the poor balding souls other than accepting baldness-Right????? WRONG! There is one thing (just the only known thing) which can stop any further hairloss (AGA). Though regrowth of all lost hair is not possible but you may gain some plus you will maintain all your current hair as long as you want. If you are completely bald then I'm sorry! This thing is not any drug/shampoo/oil/herb/supplement. Its completely free of cost! Only it need is dedication and continuity. If interested to know the details then mail me spallaloneATgmailDOTcom. Don't worry-I will not charge even a single rupee:) I personally benefited from it and I want to help those who are suffering silent pain due to hairloss-I know it hurts a lot!

herbal products may or may not work for all. i also tried many things and products, oils, roots of plants but my problem went on increasing. i was very young when it started jus 21 years old. waited for three years for oils and all to work and later realised that i was only wasting time. after enquiring through friends i went to dr rekha yadav of revital trichology and saved my hair. i took three PRP sessions and oral supplements and it showed tremendous imrovement and i grew back almost 30 percent hair in six months and fifty percent in a year. i regretted not going to her soon but better late than never. so guys dont waste your time experimenting seek a proper advice and save your hair as once the damage is done it is difficult to get them back. you can check

Rahul on April 18, 2015:

Hi mike. Are you from the same org ( hair again ). Do you really think so. Because if you think the book covers a secret of re gaining hair , scientists in the world wouldn't spend their time on research. And most of the celebrities would opt for it, as simple as that. I tried many such methods and finally came to know that you can't fight against the hormones in your body. If you do so then there is probability you might end up with some other issue. As you can see from drugs used and their side effects. Its all a gene inside your body which does this which gets passed on from your parents. So if your lucky, then you'll have head full of hair or else deal with it. I'm not demoralizing anyone. Now a days you can see many hair transplant technique which does to perfection. But this also not a proven one. So deal with it.
