Healthy and beautiful hair is something everyone desires- men or women, young or old. While
some are naturally blessed with a full head of hair, it takes an entire village for others to ensure
their strands stay there (oh the struggle!).
Add to that living in a city like Dubai, where the heat and dust can take a toll on your tresses.
While it almost seems like every force in nature is out there to damage your hair, the solution
to your worries is right in your kitchen closet (not your local drugstore).
Here are 4 home remedies that are natural, easily accessible and super effective in controlling hair fall:
1) Aloe Vera:
Apart from being aesthetically pleasing, the Aloe Vera plant in your backyard is an
absolute magic potion that helps strengthen hair and add shine. Apply Aloe Vera gel or
juice onto your scalp few hours before a hair wash to efficiently curb hair fall.
Consuming one tablespoon of Aloe Vera juice on an empty stomach also helps promote hair growth.
2) Indian Gooseberry (Amla):
Loaded with Vitamin C and exfoliating properties, Indian gooseberry also known as Amla
is touted to be one of the fastest ways to promote healthy scalp and hair growth. You
can eat it as such, consume a tablespoon of Amla juice or use the powder for a hair pack.
3) Onion Juice:
If you thought onion just made your food tastier, here’s something you should know;
Onion juice has high sulfur content that improves blood circulation hence regenerating
hair follicles (read: thicker hair!). You can apply this juice directly onto your scalp or mix
it with Aloe Vera gel or olive oil for 30 minutes and rinse it off.
4) Hot oil massage:
Nothing beats the effectiveness of a good hair and scalp massage. It increases blood
flow and strengthens the hair from its roots thus reducing hair fall. Heat and massage
your favorite oil (coconut, almond, olive, castor or others) onto your hair and scalp at
least twice a week.
