 Although hair loss and hair growth rates vary among people, you can assist in your hair restoration by using natural hair growth herbs, medicines, and hair care products that have proven effective for centuries. You can also decrease your hair loss rate by avoiding hair care products that contain parabens, sulfates, silicones, and chemical preservatives.

If you dont know where to start or how to begin, here are some hair growth and hair loss remedies that are used all around the world and come straight from Mother Earth.


To stimulate hair growth, individuals used boiled sage leaves in coconut oil and applied the oil to their hair and scalps. Also, they used fenugreek powder mixed in coconut oil or milk as a hair growth shampoo. Lastly, amla oil was used as a hair stimulator. Amla oil was mixed with coconut oil and used to moisturize the scalp.


Africans used olive oil on both their scalps and hair to stimulate hair growth.


The Egyptians employed several natural nutrients to stimulate hair growth. For example, the Egyptians applied chopped lettuce leaves to their bald spots. They also massaged their scalps with castor and almond oil.

In the Amazon, the Taiwano Indians treated scalp problems with heated extract of bananas.

If you are not up to mixing your own hair growth potions, have no fear. You dont have to give up and purchase a hormone based, chemical loaded hair growth product.
