We all know there’s nothing more seductive than running your hand through your hair but what about when your hair comes with it?


As we age, many of us men are often faced with the same terrifying sight: heaps of our hair in the sink or shower ready to go down the drain as fast as our confidence.


Fear not, however, because there are remedies you can do at home (and natural remedies at that!) that can help keep you looking more Wolverine and less Professor X.



The easiest (and cheapest) natural remedy is a simple scalp massage.


Stimulating your scalp via massage can help improve hair thickness by relieving stress and tension and encouraging hair growth and thickness in the dermal papilla.



 Aloe Vera


Aloe Vera has been used for treating hair loss for a long time.


It soothes the scalp and conditions hair which can help reduce dandruff and remove excess oils blocking hair follicles.


Aloe Vera is available as a concentrated gel that can be applied a few times a week or you can find it in an all-natural shampoo and conditioner of your choice.






Rosemary oil is the first choice of many when it comes to natural hair regrowth. It stimulates new hair growth and thus can be used to treat androgenetic alopecia.


You can add the rosemary oil into a carrier oil and massage it into your scalp before rinsing a few times a week or you can add it into your shampoo and conditioner on a daily basis.


Never use essential oils directly on the skin, always dilute them with another oil or shampoo.



Omega Fatty Acid



Taking omega fatty acids can improve your hair from the inside out because they are filled with nutrients and proteins.


Taking an omega supplement along with antioxidants can help to improve your hair density and diameter.


Omega fatty acids help improve the functionality of your cells and can boost your immune system, leading to better overall health.





Another essential oil that helps promote hair growth is peppermint.


Studies in animals have shown peppermint to increase follicle development and follicle depth leading to the overall improvement in hair growth.


Peppermint also causes a nice cold, tingling feeling as it increases blood circulation to the area it is applied to which in turn promotes hair growth.


As with rosemary oil, you can mix two drops of peppermint essential oil with a carrier oil and massage into your scalp for 5 minutes before rinsing out with shampoo and conditioner.




If you’re struggling with hair loss or just want to take better care of your hair, the important thing is to keep an open mind and be patient. You may not see results in the first few months so make sure to stick it out for at least that long when trying a new remedy.


Regardless of which remedies work for you or whether you require them at all, it is so important to take a little time each day for self-care because even if you’re not losing your hair naturally, life sure can find a way of making you pull it out.


Stay healthy, stay positive and stay educated!
