So you've started to notice thinning of your hair and hair loss. It isn't unusual for this to bother you and even mess with your self-esteem. But what can you do about it? What are the best natural hair growth remedies that really work?

Should you be applying special hair care products to your hair and scalp? Should you be following the hype surrounding natural hair remedies like castor oil, onion juice, or coconut oil?

In this article, I'll share with you my secrets for the best remedies to regrow hair, which focus on fixing the problem from the inside of your body, not the outside.

I will cover:

Hair growth remedies start on the inside

Many people think that applying certain products, shampoos, or leave-in conditioners to your hair and scalp will do the trick to reverse hair loss.

But healthy, natural hair starts from the inside. Hair loss is not something you can fix by using external solutions and hair care products. You can't throw hair loss treatment shampoo or coconut oil or castor oil on your head and expect your hair follicles to start producing an abundance of healthy hair.

You've got to look inside your body to promote healthy hair growth. That is why the most effective hair growth home remedies are inside-out approaches.

Hair loss is caused by two major concerns:

  • Nutrient deficiencies.
  • Hormonal imbalances.

When we address the nutrients in our bodies and the hormones in our bodies, we can promote natural hair growth. We can help our hair follicles to make new, healthy, beautiful hair.

So let's get started with the first major cause of hair loss: nutrient deficiencies.


Nutrients needed for hair growth

If you don't have enough of certain nutrients, then your body and hair follicles won't be able to produce healthy hair. You'll get thinning and hair loss because your body doesn't have what it needs.

And remember, you can't throw on nutrients to your hair externally with hair care products, hoping your hair will somehow absorb them and get healthy. You've got to take them orally so that your body can heal from the inside out.

Below are the top nutrients involved in hair growth. These are the ones to pay attention to if you want to experience hair regrowth. You could have a deficiency in one of the below, or in multiple. Replenishing your body with these makes up one of the best home remedies for natural hair growth.

1. Vitamin C

Vitamin C helps with collagen. Hair is actually a type of collagen called keratin. So when we don't have enough vitamin C, we can have trouble making hair.

Vitamin C is found in leafy greens. These are a great nutrient-rich plant source to boost your intake.

2. Trace minerals

Trace minerals are needed in the body for protein manufacturing. If you want to make hair, skin, nails, arteries, bone, etc., then you need trace minerals in small amounts. So for hair growth, you need enough trace minerals.

Unfortunately, we don't get the trace minerals we need from our food. That is because the soil our food is grown in is depleted of nutrients. So unless we are taking a trace mineral blend or sea kelp, then we won't have enough trace minerals in our diet. Being deficient in trace minerals is a big reason for hair loss.

Get trace minerals from sea kelp or a plant-based trace mineral blend.

3. Collagen

As mentioned earlier, hair is a type of collagen. So we need plenty of it for hair care and preventing hair loss. To help with your hair growth, make sure you aren't deficient in collagen.

You need to take type I or type III collagen for hair growth.

4. Silica

Silica is one of the most abundant elements in the body. It helps with the production of hair, along with nails and skin. It helps make your hair shiny, tough, and healthy. It can protect your hair against splitting, too. And as a bonus, it will keep your nails strong.

You want to get silica from plant-based food sources. Silica that comes from the horse tail plant is a good option.

5. B vitamins

B vitamins are very helpful for hair and skin problems. If you are deficient in B vitamins you will experience hair loss and your hair will fall out. Biotin is a B vitamin that is especially important here.

You need the natural form of the B complex. Many people take too much biotin and a form that isn't in the natural complex, which can be problematic. The best way to get your B vitamins is through nutritional yeast.

Correcting a deficiency in any of the things listed above can be the home remedy you need to promote hair growth. To learn more about the key nutrients that prevent hair loss, go here.

But in some cases, hair loss doesn't have to do with nutrition at all. Sometimes, the best natural remedy for hair growth must look at hormones.

Correcting hormonal imbalances for hair growth

Some forms of hair loss can be rooted in hormonal problems. For example, alopecia (which is an autoimmune problem) and male pattern baldness are both related to hormones.

If you have either of these conditions that cause hair loss, then you need to address your hormone levels.

Which hormone is to blame for hair thinning? DHT.

DHT is a very powerful form of testosterone. When you have too much of it, it can lead to hair loss and hair growth issues. So what can you? You can help stop your body from making too much DHT.

There is an enzyme that converts testosterone to DHT. If we inhibit that enzyme, we slow DHT production.

Stinging nettle root is the best natural remedy for lowering DHT levels. It inhibits the enzyme, and thus lowers DHT in the body. Using stinging nettle root will help you stop hair loss if hormones are to blame and you have alopecia or male pattern baldness.

Stinging nettle root is also a good home remedy for other issues related to DHT like prostate issues, facial hair growth, acne, and more.

You simply need to look to the root of the problem and work from the inside out.

Correct nutrient deficiencies that commonly lead to hair loss, and find better balance with your hormones using stinging nettle root. When you implement these simple natural remedies for hair growth, you will find that your hair will start growing healthier and more full than ever before.
