Natural hair growthNowadays many people who suffer from hair loss prefer to regrow hair naturally. Generally speaking, the problem can be accessed in two ways – internal and external. In this article we will discuss the former.

Speaking about natural hair growth from the internal point of view, the primary goal is to strengthen your immune system. The immune system protects the body against diseases and controls cells and tissues in terms of proper functioning. To improve your immune system and, consequently, regrow hair naturally you should consider first of all detoxication, proper nutrition, and stress management. These are the key factors in achieving physical health and balance of mind.

Detoxication. Water is the best natural detoxifier. Drink up to 2 liters (0.53 gal) of water and more a day to promote natural hair growth. Plenty of water will help your body get rid of harmful substances, toxins and impurities. Water also keeps your skin and your scalp moisturized what is essential for their good condition. Add a teaspoon of honey and/or some lemon juice to your daily water dose to make it more pleasant to drink.

Proper nutrition. Healthy foods are essential for natural hair growth. Hair needs a good supply of nutrients to grow thick, long and strong. Since main structural element of hair is keratin which belongs to the family of fibrous proteins, protein rich diet is indispensable to grow hair naturally. Include more such high protein foods as fish, cheese, poultry, nuts, seeds, lean meats, milk, beans and grains in your diet. They will provide excellent building material for new hair. Also don’t forget about vitamins and minerals. Vitamin B, zinc and calcium are particularly important for hair growth. Therefore, eat more fresh fruit and vegetables, seafood and cereals to strengthen your immune system and regrow hair naturally. Your hair will also benefit from dietary supplements which include biotin, multivitamins, and Omega 3 fatty acids. Take them additionally if you want to grow hair faster. Avoid junk foods, make your nutrition natural and healthy, develop a balanced diet plan and always stick to it and you will surely make your natural hair growth program more effective.

You will soon start to feel that natural hair regrowth is to a great extend about changing your lifestyle and improving your total health. So apart from detoxication and healthy eating, you will also want to include a part of fitness in your natural hair growth program. Physical exercises will help you drop excessive body fat, improve cardiovascular activity, get in good shape and eventually build a strong immune system. At least half an hour of exercising 3 times a week will work wonders in the long run. It will also help you have a better and more recovering sleep which is essential for general health and hair growth in particular.

Stress management. Powerful immune system and physical health goes hand in hand with balance of mind, particularly stress management. Stress as well as other mental turmoils are connected with hair loss. Stress not only weakens our immune system, but also causes several types of hair loss (alopecia areata, telogen effluvium, trichotillomania). Therefore, stress reduction is indispensable for natural hair regrowth. Together with physical exercises and good sleep there are other techniques of stress management such as meditation, relaxation methods, yoga, hobbies, autogenic training and others. Just take it easy, believe in yourself and stay optimistic and you will reach your goal. And your hair will be there with you!

Many people note that their hair starts falling out more than usual in spring. The process of intense shedding usually goes on for several months. For those who are very particular about the way they look and especially about their hair condition such experience is very frustrating. They desperately seek for help in doctors and all kinds of available hair loss treatments hoping to change the situation to the better. But when it gets obvious that nothing really helps, it’s time for more stress, sadness and frustration… In spring when everything comes to life…

What must be said is that there’s no need to dramatize. According to the theory of seasonal hair loss this process is quite normal. If your hair sheds more than usual in spring, it is happens because your physiological clock works this way and that’s it. Take a look on animals – they cast their coat every fall and spring and no one gets frustrated. Seasonal hair loss in human beings goes according to laws of nature as well. And there is not much you can do about it.

Yet there is something that can seriously aggravate hair shedding in the beginning of the season. We are speaking about toxins and other harmful substances. They alone can pose a serious threat to the hair and cause hair loss.  Therefor, being accumulated over winter they can significantly increase natural hair loss in spring. Still, in comparison with our physiological clock which we can’t do anything about, to detox your body is fully in your hands.

As a matter of fact, the greatest amount of toxins get in our bodies with the things we put into our mouths, i.e. orally. In winter our nutrition is often far from being healthy. We may suffer from lack of minerals and vitamins that are contained in fresh fruit and vegetables. We have to stick to manufactured foods and that makes toxins contained in them get slowly accumulated in us. And even those natural products that we may buy in the store at this time of the year are usually grown in artificial conditions and often with the use of chemical fertilizers, so they are never 100% free from nitrates and other harmful substances.

We often get sick in winter and, therefore, have to take different drugs and medications to prevent typical winter diseases and to cure them. But using all these medications we rarely ponder over the fact that apart from the healing effect they also gradually intoxicate us. All chemical and synthetic treatments that we take in winter have side effects and when combined, certain drugs and medications may lead to a very adverse result when our body is overfilled with acids and toxins. All this can make a real big contribution to the seasonal hair loss that starts in spring.

What can be possibly done about this sad situation? Well, there is a simple rule here: always keep watching what you eat. To eliminate toxic substances from your body eat more fresh fruits, salads and vegetables. There was no such opportunity in winter, so take the advantage of it in spring. It’s preferable to eat them raw for better effect. These products not only supply your organism with vital nutrients, but also serve as effective natural cleaners, they detox your body and and boost your immune system.

To neutralize and eliminate acids from your organism give preference to alkalizing natural products (vs. acidifying). Consume more cheese, milk, yoghurt, eggs, nuts, vegetable oil. These products will not only neutralize harmful acids but also nourish your hair with protein that is very essential for its fast growth. Green tea is an amazing natural deacidifier, to say nothing of its DHT inhibiting properties. There are also special deacidifying and detoxifying nutritional supplements available over the counter today, but it’s better to discuss whether to use them or not with your doctor. It can be very helpful to see a nutritionist to measure your vitamins, minerals, acids and alkali levels and  develop a thorough detox diet accordingly.
