While spending hours fiddling with your comb to cover the spot and further chocking your hair follicles with toxic chemicals is certainly a way to go about it, we were thinking of herbal ways to address the condition.
Here are 6 ayurvedic remedies to fill the balding spot!
Works every time! Fenugreek seeds are packed with vitamin B6, minerals, iron and calcium which will infuse life back into dead hair follicles.
Grind fenugreek seeds into a fine paste. Apply it on the bald spot. Let it sit for an hour and then rinse your hair with a mild shampoo. Follow this method twice a week to see quick results.
Thyme oil contains thymol and antiseptic properties that boost blood circulation, stimulate hair growth and reduce dandruff.
Take a few drops of thyme oil onto your palm. Rub your palms together for several seconds to warm the oil. Now gently massage onto your scalp, focusing more on the balding spot. Using a boar bristle brush, comb your hair to disperse the oil evenly.
Ample amounts of antioxidants present in saffron repair hair follicles and promote hair growth.
Mix a pinch of saffron with 4 teaspoons of milk and 1 tablespoon of liquorice. Mix until it gets a smooth consistency. Apply the paste on the balding spot. Leave it on overnight. Wash it off in the morning.
Radish juice is packed with vitamins A, C and K, which makes for powerful antioxidants that strengthen the roots of hair from within and stimulate hair growth.
Extract the juice of a black radish and apply it to the balding spot. Massage the area, until you feel the skin become slightly warm.
Camphor has natural anti-septic and anti-bacterial properties that work to maintain a healthy scalp condition, which in turn promotes hair growth.
Apply a few drops of pure camphor oil on the balding spot, every night before going to bed. Watch visible results within a week.
Hibiscus is packed with vital proteins that can spell life back into your damaged hair follicles.
Crush a few petals of hibiscus flowers into a fine paste and add in a few drops of olive oil to get a smooth consistency. Apply it through your scalp. Leave it on for 15 minutes and wash it clean.
