Natural hair loss remedies can take a couple of different forms. Some people find that improving their diet and reducing their stress levels can help. Taking vitamins can also help to treat hair loss. Another remedy for this health condition is to apply ingredients directly to the scalp to stimulate hair growth.

Baldness can be caused by poor nutrition. Following a diet that includes a variety of foods, including lean meats, whole grains and fruits and vegetables is a good choice for everyone, even if they aren't looking for natural hair loss remedies.

Stress plays a role in hair loss, and finding ways to deal with it will help to slow the rate of hair loss and improve the individual's overall health. Simple measures, like taking a brisk walk, can help to give a fresh perspective on the pressures that a person faces in his or her everyday life. Joining a health club or participating in a sport can also bring down stress levels. Taking this type of action may not be the first thing that comes to mind when someone is thinking about natural hair loss remedies, but it can help treat the condition.

Taking vitamins can help to treat hair loss. Vitamin A is an antioxidant, and it helps to ensure that the scalp is producing sufficient amounts of sebum, an oily secretion produced by glands in the skin. Good sources of vitamin A include milk, eggs, cheese, meat, broccoli and carrots. Vitamins B6 and B12 can also help to prevent hair loss. These vitamins are contained in foods like whole grain cereals, egg yolks, organ meats, chicken, fish and milk.

A person who is looking for natural hair loss remedies may also want to consider treating the problem by applying the ingredients directly to the scalp. Coconut milk and castor oil can both be used as a hair loss treatment.

Other natural hair loss remedies involve using a conditioner on the hair. Heat olive oil or herbal oil and massage it into the hair. Comb the oil through using a wide-toothed comb and then massage the scalp. For best results, wrap the head in a towel and leave the oil on overnight. A mild shampoo should be used to wash the hair in the morning.
