This time we’ve collected some more recipes of traditional medicine that will help you effectively promote faster hair growth and make your hair healthier and stronger.
In case of the oily scalp and dandruff a mixture of calendula alcoholate and castor oil (ratio 10:1) has proved to bring good results. In case of the dry scalp the calendula alcoholate: castor oil ratio should be 1:1. These recipes will not only help you get rid of dandruff and excessive dryness of the scalp but also help you regrow lost hair.
It is a fact that human hair is composed mainly of
protein (keratin). So it is proper that the said nutrient be
part of your diet. Protein contains amino acids, which is vital for developing new cells. There are five amino acids working together for hair growth; one of which is worth mentioning - the cystine. This is the most important amino acid in relation to building lustrous hair fibers. And as mentioned in the preceding paragraph, red meats are rich in protein. So are fish, soy, and dairy products. Sprouts are also a good source of protein and supply the necessary enzymes for healthful hair growth.
Vitamins & Hair Loss
All vitamins are but necessary to avert hair loss. Vitamins A, D and E are fat-soluble vitamins that render the hair a tad bit oily. These substances prevent the hair strands from becoming brittle and dry. In addition, split ends are also avoided thanks to A.D.E. Though a word of caution: the consequence of having excess Vitamin A is also hair loss.
So be careful with your vitamin dosages. Moving on, it is advised that the food rations contain orange (or yellow) fruit and vegetables, whole grains, and fortified cereals, all of which contains A, D, or E or a combination of the two. On the other hand, Vitamins B and C, both of which are water soluble is also needed. The former stimulates hair growth while the latter is responsible for improving iron absorption. Vitamin B rich food includes the beans, peas, leafy veggies, and whole grains as well. Citrus fruits like oranges and lemons are full of Vitamin C.
Minerals & Hair Loss
Various minerals such as zinc, sulfur, iron, and calcium also play a part in hair growth. Zinc is ample in foods like meat, poultry, and legumes. And as with Vitamin A, intense zinc presence (or lack of it) may lead to shedding due to excessively oily or brittle hair. As for the sulfur, this can be found in cloves of garlic, grains, meats, beans, lentils, and peanuts. Lastly, calcium, much concentration of this mineral is in dairy products.
In case of itching and irritation of the scalp make a mixture of 10 grams of birch tar, 20 grams of castor oil and 100 grams of alcohol and rub it in carefully several hours before washing your head.
One more hair mask to make your hair grow faster: Take 1 teaspoon (tsp) of castor oil, 1 tsp of honey, 1 egg and juice of 1 middle-sized onion and mix these components thoroughly. Rub the mask in their hair roots 2 hours before washing your head. Then wash the mask of with a soft shampoo or baby soap and rinse your hair with water acidified with lemon juice or vinegar.
