Most of us have had days with a fret post a hair wash. This is because of our falling hair and declining hopes to regain them. Hair fall is one of the most common problems that people come across and even have a tough time dealing with it.

There are multiple contributing factors to hair fall. Lifestyle changes like unhealthy eating habits, hormonal changes and improper sleep cycles add to the problem. Stress, increasing age, severe medical conditions and excessive use of hair and styling tools also trigger the problem.

There are several natural hair masks that can boost up your hair regrowth. These effectively and naturally work upon the hair follicles to promote their growth and some of them being as follows:

1. Egg, Coconut Oil and Honey

All of these three ingredients effectively contribute in being very healthy and even encourage newer growth of hair follicles. This hair mask works in providing essential proteins to the hair which eventually in turn work on promoting the hair growth. This mask provides proper nourishment to the hair while reducing the damage.

Taking all the three ingredients in a container and mixing them well to form a mixture. Apply it on to your hair and let it stay for about 30-40 minutes. Then rinse off and shampoo your hair with chemical-free shampoo.

2. Onion Juice and Aloe Vera

The onion juice has effective nourishing properties for the hair and scalp. The presence of several vitamins boosts hair growth while ensuring voluminous and fuller hair growth. Aloe vera has properties of soothing the hair scalp.

Mix both the ingredients in a container to form a hair mask. Then, apply on your hair and let it stay for a while. Wash your hair after 20 minutes with a sulphate free shampoo and top it up with a conditioner.

There is no doubt about the fact that these hair masks are very effective in providing a denser and fuller hair growth. But, these can take a couple of years to show visible signs. But who has this much patience and time?

So, Dr. Nivedita Dadu talks about this effective hair treatment that helps in providing indelible and long-lasting effects on the volume of the hair. This treatment, PRP Therapy is a common 3-step method to tackle the problem of hair fall.

This is a natural treatment which involves drawing patient’s blood, processing it and then injecting it back into the scalp. Once the blood is drawn, it is processed to create it platelet-rich and then the platelet-rich blood is inserted back into the scalp with an injection. This is injected into the problem areas or the areas that experience greater hair fall.

With this process, the regrowth of the hair actually happens organically. As this hair fall treatment includes injecting your own blood into your scalp, the danger of getting any side effects are reduced drastically. The healing normally consists of 3 treatments spanned meticulously in 4-6 week period along with maintenance treatments that take place every 4-6 months.
