There is no one sure-fire way to prevent all hair loss; however, there are some methods that have been used that work on some people.
In addition to having the right diet and nutrition, there are some naturopathic remedies available that address the problems of hair loss, and we’ll explore those in this section.
Massage & Aromatherapy
Massage and aromatherapy have been used with some success. In minor cases of temporary hair loss, hair growth can be stimulated by massage. A healthy flow of blood and oxygen to the scalp promotes hair growth.
To stimulate the scalp, aroma therapists use a blend of six drops each of lavender and bay essential oils in a base of four ounces of either almond, soybean or sesame oil.
You can prepare this mixture yourself and massaged it into the scalp and allow it to sit for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, wash your hair and scalp with your normal shampoo mixed with three drops of bay essential oil.
Massaging the scalp in general for a couple of minutes a day can stimulate blood flow to the hair follicles and in stimulate some hair growth.
Of course, you must be careful when massaging and not tug at the hair or use the fingernails when massaging the scalp. If one is concerned about fingernails getting in the way, then explore other massaging options.
One is a flat-handed massage. Although this is not as effective as the finger massage, it can definitely provide some circulatory benefits and results. There are also several electric massagers on the market that have an attachment for scalp massaging.
An oriental method called Qi Gong (pronounced Chi Kung) has been used to increase blood circulation to the scalp and face. Place your fingers at the center of the skull base and then begin to tap approximately 30 times. Work your way outward toward the ears continuing to tap gently.
After reaching the ears go back to the center of the skull a little higher up and work your way around to the ear region. Keep going up about eight levels, each time repeating the process.
