Stimulate Hair Growth with Three Natural Ingredients

We put our hair through a lot, and sometimes it can’t take it anymore. Most times, genetics gets the better of our hair. No matter what the case, hair loss is a problem for a lot of people. According to the American Hair Loss Association, 40 percent of all those with hair loss are women and hair loss also effects two-thirds of males over the age of 35. Luckily, there are some natural options that promote quick growing hair.

Plenty of people with hair loss assess their options and decide that medical treatment is the preferred path to re-growing or replacing hair. That could include taking medication, going through a procedure or both. For those that don’t want to go through that, or at least look to attempt some other possibilities first, another path involves ingredients that are probably in your kitchen right now and can be mixed together to form a natural approach. Aside from promoting faster growing hair, it is healthy or your hair and scalp in other ways.

Similar to another hair-helping recipe, this mixture goes beyond singular food items that have proven to be good for your hair. Here’s the recipe:

  • Egg yolk
  • 1 Tbsp. of raw organic honey
  • 2 Tbsp. of castor oil

The instructions are to add these ingredients in these proportions into a bowl and stir until they create a homogenous mixture. Before showering, massage the solution into your roots and use any leftover solution on the entire length of your hair strands.

Covering your hair with a shower cap, the recommendation is to let the mixture sit for three hours after which you should thoroughly wash with shampoo and rinse with warm water. This process should be repeated at least twice per week for two months to achieve the best results.

And here’s why it works: Each ingredient in this simple and natural mixture brings its own set of benefits to the table.

Castor oil, according to WellnessBin, has traditionally been used as a treatment for hair loss and hair growth. The inherent antifungal properties of castor oil, they say, help treat folliculitis, scalp infections, and dandruff. Specifically, the Ricinoleic acid that represents one of the major constituents of castor oil successfully enhances blood flow to the scalp. If you Google “ricinoleic acid” and “hair,” the results are plentiful, including specially made castor oil hair products.

As for the egg yolk, the protein and amino acids are said to promote faster hair production and regrowth. The egg yolk’s biotin is good for the renewal of hair roots and follicles. Egg yolk is commonly used, if nothing else, as an ingredient in many other natural mixtures that make hair shinier.

Finally, the organic raw honey, which is also found in other hair-healthy solutions, is full of antioxidants as well as another anti-fungal and germicidal ingredient that helps protect hair from microorganisms that may cause baldness and hair loss.
