There aren’t many things more unsettling than when we start to lose our hair as we age. Every day becomes a constant reminder when we look in the mirror and see that bald spot or receding hairline on display. Or watch helplessly as clumps of hair fall into the shower drain every morning. For some, hair loss is inevitable (thanks genetics!). But that doesn’t mean you have to accept it. As it turns out, there are plenty of simple and natural ways to stimulate hair growth. And that is what we’re going to cover in today’s article.

Treat Yourself to a Scalp Massage

Scalp MassageGently massage your scalp once or twice every week. Massaging increases blood flow to your hair follicles which can help stimulate growth. Not only are you nourishing your hair follicles, but you’re giving yourself a dose of much-needed TLC and relaxation. And it’s completely free, because you don’t have to shell out for an expensive spa experience.1

Use Hair Oil Masks

This is a great way to kick your scalp massage up a notch. Add a nutritious oil into the mix with high fatty acid content. Fatty acids help nourish your hair follicles and prevent protein loss. Protein is critical for maintaining strong, healthy hair. Great options to try include coconut oil, almond oil, rosemary oil, or jojoba oil. Massage the oil generously into your scalp and hair and let it sit for 20 minutes. Then rinse and wash as usual.2

Eat More Healthy Fats

Omega 3Omega 3 fatty acids are your hair’s best friend. According to holistic nutritionist Meryl Pritchard, omega 3’s help stimulate hair growth. They also give your strands that desirable shiny lustre and glow. Plus, omega 3’s are a vital nutrient our bodies can’t make. So we must get them from our diet. Salmon, tuna, flaxseed, and walnuts are all rich in omega 3s.3 4

Use a Licorice Shampoo

Chinese licorice has been shown to stimulate hair root growth and reduce thinning hair. So if your current shampoo isn’t cutting it, try a licorice-based herbal shampoo instead. Consistency is important, so make sure to use it on a daily basis for maximum results.5 6

Add More Hair-Healthy Foods to Your Diet

Hair-Healthy FoodsOmega 3s aren’t the only nutrient that can help regrow your hair. Kimchi is loaded with special probiotics that can potentially reverse hair loss. Eggs are jam packed with protein and biotin, two other essential nutrients your hair needs to grow and remain healthy. Spinach is filled with folate, vitamin A, and iron, all of which nourish your hair. Avocados are another hair growth ally to add to your diet. They are loaded with vitamin C, vitamin E, and hair-friendly fatty acids.7

Limit Heat Exposure

This can be a tough one, especially for us ladies. We love our blow dryers and styling irons, but it’s no secret they damage our hair. The last thing you want is dry, brittle hair when you’re trying to regrow it. So if you’re struggling with breakage or hair loss, try your best to avoid using these common heat tools. Hair restoration surgeon Dr. Alan Bauman recommends letting your hair air-dry. And if you must use a blow dryer or styling iron, he recommends using a heat protectant spray as well.8

Check Your Vitamin D Levels

Vitamin DStudies suggest vitamin D deficiency may contribute to hair loss.9 And unfortunately, 42% of American adults are deficient in vitamin D.10 A simple blood test from your doctor can measure your vitamin D levels. And if you’re running low, you may want to consider supplementation.
