10 Homemade hair treatments to stop hair loss
If you notice alarming amount of hair on your hair brush when you comb your hair in the morning that means that you may have problem called hair loss. The causes of hair loss can be different, they can be connected with a health problem such as hormonal disorders, genetic predisposition, some kind of illness, stress, or it can be caused by aggressive and harsh hair products and treatments. If your hair loss is caused by a health problem, then you need to talk to your doctor.
If your hair loss is caused by using harsh hair products, bleaching your hair or using heat tools too often, then a nice natural homemade hair mask might help. One thing you need to remember is that the hair loss problem won’t be fixed by using a hair mask just once, regrowing your hair is a slow process and you have to be patient. Here are a few homemade hair treatments against hair loss:
Homemade hair mask against hair loss with avocado and egg yolk
This homemade hair mask will make your hair stronger and healthier. You will need one ripe avocado and one egg yolk.

Mix the avocado puree with one egg yolk and apply the mixture to your roots and all the way to the ends. Put a shower cap on and leave the hair mask for 30-40 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water (don’t use too hot water so you won’t ‘cook’ the egg) and wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner as usual.

Castor oil is one of the most used oils for hair growth. It is also used as an eyelash growth treatment too. For this homemade hair mask against hair loss you will need: 1 egg yolk and 1 tablespoon of castor oil. You can also add 1 teaspoon of Vitamin A (if you can’t find liquid Vitamin A, you can take 3-4 softgel capsules of Vitamin A, poke them with a safety pin and squeeze the oil), but if you don’t have vitamin A on hand, you can skip it.
Beat the egg yolk and add the oil little by little until you get a mayonnaise like consistency. Apply this homemade hair mask on your scalp. Leave it for 1-2 hours and wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner.

Rinse the homemade hair mask with lukewarm water and wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner.
