If you don’t want to go the traditional treatment route for hair loss, there are a few home remedies that you can try. Many of them have only anecdotal evidence to support them, but don’t be discouraged if you try anything once and it doesn’t work. These are ongoing treatments and they have to be done multiple times to be able to show whether they will work for you or not.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has multiple different properties that help with skin health; everything from essential fatty acids to minerals and proteins. It also contains potassium and iron.

Onion Juice

Onion contains sulphur, which helps increase collagen production. Using it on your scalp can help prevent hair loss, even if it does make you a little stinky in the process.


Garlic also has a high amount of sulphur in it. It’s used in traditional recipes for hair loss prevention for this good reason!


Even though henna is usually used to color hair, it can also be good to use to protect your hair.


Hibiscus flowers can help prevent hair loss, lessen the amount of frizz, and prevents most split ends. They are used to make masks and oil to place in the hair. Fresh flowers must be used for these treatments, most of the time, as powder or dried flowers are not as potent or effective. Topical treatments for hair loss are typically the most effective, such as this product: If nothing on this list works for you, you should consider trying it.

Eggs As Hair Conditioner

Eggs contain protein, which helps prevent breakage in your hair. It also nourishes the hair follicles. Using eggs as hair conditioner is easy, as all you have to do is crack a couple of eggs into a bowl and put some lukewarm water into it. Make sure the water isn’t hot or the egg will cook! Beat the egg thoroughly with a fork and then comb your hair well before you massage the egg/water mixture in. Leave it in for about 10 minutes. Afterward, rinse it with lukewarm water; don’t use water you even think feels hot, because you’ll scramble eggs in your hair! Not fun.

Iron Supplements

One of the most common causes of hair is iron deficiency, so taking an iron pill every day may help with hair loss symptoms.

Vitamin & Mineral Supplements

Multivitamins could be a help if you’re losing your hair, also. Many vitamins are tied directly to hair growth and if you do without them, you’re putting your hair at risk.

A few vitamins you may be missing are:



Vitamin C

Vitamin B3 (Niacin)

Try checking out a high quality multivitamin if you’ve tried other things that haven’t worked.

Add More Vegetables & Meat To Your Diet

Hair loss is typically a sign that something is wrong in your body and it’s often the case that proper nutrition will help alleviate it. If you haven’t started any new medications and you haven’t experienced anything traumatic recently, you may want to look at your diet as a potential source of the problem.
