Hair thinning, damage and loss are conditions that can occur in both men and women for a variety of reasons such as over-processing, illness, hormones, hereditary conditions, and aging. There are, however, many different methods of natural hair restoration that are available to treat this common problem with varying degrees of success. These natural remedies include vitamin and herbal supplements, dietary modifications, shampoos, conditioners, oils, sprays, massage and other scalp treatments, all of which are designed to improve health and stimulate hair re-growth.

Medical professionals have found that there is a direct link between diet and hair condition in individuals who suffer from this problem. According to dermatologists at the New York University Medical Center in New York City, many people do not ingest enough essential fatty oils, protein, and iron in their daily diets to promote proper hair growth. By eating more dark leafy vegetables, red meat, fish, and nuts, those who want to naturally treat hair loss and thinning can dramatically improve the condition of hair and stimulate new growth.


Thinning hair and baldness are most often caused by genetics or hormonal conditions, but there are vitamin and herbal supplements that can help to slow down this process. Herbal products such as saw palmetto are said to restore hair for many people. B vitamins are very important in natural hair restoration as they help to increase the growth rate of hair. Niacin, biotin, folic acid and pantothenic acid naturally found in vitamin B12 are especially good for helping to restore hair to its former glory.

In addition to treating the inside, the hair and scalp can be treated on the outside with a variety of natural hair restoration treatments. These treatments are often found in oils, shampoos, tonics, sprays, and other natural products used directly on the scalp and hair. Each natural hair restoration product is applied in a special way to help make hair look better, thicken hair shafts to give the appearance of more hair, and improve the condition of chemically processed hair.

Massage and electronic devices can also be gently applied to the scalp to stimulate blood flow to the hair follicles to encourage the production of healthy hair. These natural hair restoration techniques can be combined with topical products to improve results. Oils and hair tonics that include lavender and tea tree are very popular natural treatments for thinning hair. While these products produce limited results, they improve the overall look and feel of hair.
