True or False: Massaging Scalp Helps Hair Growth?

This is unfortunately False.  I love scalp massages.  I feel refreshed and invigorated post scalp rub down.  Scalp massages can increase blood flow which is always a good thing, however, if you are looking to activate hair growth scalp massages will not work for you.

True or False: Cutting Hair Makes Hair Grow?

This is completely false.  I wish we could give you a magical remedy to help your hair grow longer, however, cutting the hair more often will not make your hair grow faster.  On average your hair grows about 1/2  inch every  month.

Horsetail Helps Strengthen Hair?

horsetailNo no no it is not the actual tail of a horse.  As a devout vegetarian I am against any animal byproducts!  Horsetail is a non-flowering fern like plant that grows wild throughout the northern hemisphere.  You don’t have to scour the earth for it you can simply find it at your local natural food store.  So what is the deal with horsetail?  If applied topically on hair it is known to help strengthen and restore shine in your hair.  Horsetail adds silica to the hair which provides naturally the boost your hair needs.  A silica deficiency is one of the causes of hair loss! Everyone on board? 

Make Your Own Horsetail Shampoo
Step 1: Steep 2 to 3 tablespoons in ½ cup of hot water
Step 2: Add the mixture to your regular shampoo
Step 3: Use the shampoo mixture as often as you normally shampoo hair

Another Reason to Love Aloe Vera, Hair Loss

Aloe VeraIs Aloe Vera the true cure all for every ailment under the sun?  I cannot attest to every ailment but Aloe Vera is fabulous for your hair and scalp and can even help to prevent hair loss!

Aloe Vera has been used for centuries as a remedy to cure and relieve common skin disorders in Native America, India, and the Caribbean.  This miracle plant has been used to help relieve skin and scalp disorders and keep hair healthy. 

So what is the connection with Aloe Vera and hair loss you ask?  Aloe Vera is known to balance out the PH balance and stimulate the production of enzymes on your scalp which helps stimulate hair growth.  So if you are looking to prevent hair loss or just keep your locks healthy use this sure fire routine to keep your full head of hair on your head versus the bed! 

Before going to bed, dab a bit of Aloe Vera on your scalp with your fingers or cotton ball. Massage in the scalp and hair.  Wash the next day.  If you would rather not sleep with the gel, put Aloe Vera in your hair first thing in the morning and then wash after an hour.  Remember longer is better!  You can find either Aloe Vera stalks at your local grocery store or nursery. Not into the natural stalks, use an over the counter Aloe Vera Gel.

Noticing Hair Loss or Breakage? Hemp to the Rescue

http://detnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080415/LIFESTYLE03/804150401Many women are plagued with premature hair loss due to pregnancy, hormonal changes, chemical treatments, and stress.  There are many products such as Nioxin and Murad that are known to reduce excessive daily hair loss but what if you want to use something natural?

We have found the answer!  If you have noticed a slight decrease in hair density or have experienced hair breakage due to a poorly executed color, perm, or relaxer this homegrown remedy will surely bring those locks back to optimum health.

Step 1: Mix 1 tbsp of each of the following teas:

       Indian Hemp: Promotes hair growth

       Nettle: Prevents hair breakage

       Rosemary: Prevents hair breakage and loss

(StyleBell Tip: You can find these teas in your local natural market)

Step 2: Add to 2-3 cups of water and bring to a boil. Boil the tea mixture until water is a deep color (usually about 10 to 15 mintues).

Step 3: Strain the tea and add 1 tsp Boric Acid.  (Boric Acid is a natural preservative.)  Store the mixture in the refrigerator to keep.

Step 4: When ready to use soak a cotton ball in the mixture and apply directly on your scalp daily.  Keep the mixture on your scalp for about 5 – 15 minutes.  Rinse the hair with the mixture and then rinse out with warm water.

Step 5:  Continue with this rinse daily.  You will start noticing the difference after day 4 or 5!

Is Your Hair Thinning? Check Your Water

Have you recently noticed thinning hair?  Did you move to a new city or new home.  It may be a good idea to have your water checked for Mercury levels.  Premature hair loss is one of the symptoms of having extreme levels of Mercury in your bloodstream.  Eating large quantities of seafood with high levels of Mercury can also lend itself to this widely experienced phenomenon.  Who would have known!  A study conducted by Dr. Jane Hightower details that symptoms associated with high levels of Mercury included dizziness, memory lapses, fatigue, sleeplessness, and hair loss! There are ways to treat the water levels and to help combat Mercury ridden water, including water filtration systems.  Although fairly expensive, it is of course well worth it.
