Hair loss can be difficult to deal with. Poor nutrition and illness are possible causes, but it’s most commonly due to genetics, so in some cases, it’s inevitable. A few treatment methods may encourage front hair to grow back. While you won’t likely experience drastic regrowth, be diligent in your treatment and you should see small gains.
Things You'll Need
Eat protein. A diet that’s lacking in this nutrient can lead to thinning hair; increasing your intake may help to improve hair health and stimulate growth. You can get protein from a variety of sources, such as meat, eggs, nuts, and seeds.
Massage the front of your head daily. Massage encourages circulation, helping blood and nutrients reach hair follicles more easily. Apply firm pressure and massage for two minutes each day.
Take folic acid. It’s essential to hair health and may prevent hair loss. Take 400 micrograms daily in the form of a supplement, or eat lots of green vegetables, beans, and carrots.
Apply eucalyptus oil. This natural oil is often used to stimulate the skin and help the hair follicles produce hair more efficiently. Apply a light layer of eucalyptus oil to the front of your head daily. It’s available in most health and beauty stores.
Use biotin. Take 2.5 milligrams a day to encourage new hair growth. You can find biotin in most drug and health stores.
Eat a well-balanced, healthy diet. Poor nutrition can both cause and exacerbate hair loss. Make sure you’re properly nourished with vitamins and nutrients from fresh, natural foods.
Avoid heated hair styling tools, which can damage your hair and impede hair growth.
