Okay so without further ado, let’s get to these natural hair growth remedies, shall we?
#1 – It Starts With A Healthy Diet
Just as how you need adequate nutrients to grow, build muscles and be healthy, your hair also needs an adequate supply of the right nutrients to grow and flourish.
This also means that a deficiency of the required nutrients will also lead to hair loss problems.
So What Exactly Does This Mean?
Well, the reality is, outside of supplementing we get the majority of the nutrients that we need from the foods we eat.
Your diet plays an important role in supplying the hair follicles with the nutrients it gets from the foods you eat.
Contrary to popular belief, 90% of your hair growth comes from within – meaning, external factors such as applying topical solutions are just a small percentage of your overall hair growth journey.
That said, you need to ensure that your diet is rich in proteins, fats, vitamins, and minerals as they are very important for strong, healthy hair.
#2 – Give Your Scalp A Good Massage Daily
In tip number one above, we mentioned that your hair follicles need an adequate supply of the right nutrients to grow and flourish.
Well, a great way to increase the number of nutrients that gets into the hair follicles is to stimulate blood flow.
Keep in mind that nutrients travel to various parts of the body via the blood. Giving your head a gentle massage several times throughout the day will encourage blood flow to the scalp and eventually the hair follicles.
And of course, this will promote hair growth. An added bonus is that this little massage has the added effect of relieving you of stress and tension.
#3 – Using Onion Juice For Hair Growth
I must admit, onion has a really terrible smell. However, if you can tolerate the smell this little bulb can do wonders for your hair.
You see, onion juice contains certain nutrients that may help stimulate hair growth and may help nourish dormant hair follicles making them more likely to produce new hair strands.
Onion is also rich in rich in dietary sulfur has amazing antioxidant properties and powerful anti-microbial Properties.
All of this makes onion not only great for hair growth but also helps to treat your scalp to #stophairloss.

#4 – Using Lemon To Increase Hair Growth
While lemon is not a direct hair growth factor, it indirectly promotes hair by cleansing your scalp. Healthier scalp means a better environment for your hair follicles to flourish.
An easy way to incorporate lemon juice into your hair growth journey is to apply fresh lemon juice to your scalp about 15 minutes before you shampoo.
When you add the lemon juice, make sure you use your fingertips to massage your scalp gently so that it can permeate and cover all of your scalps.
#5 – Coconut Oil Is Your Best Friend
Coconut oil is one of those things that should be in every house. It has a myriad of uses and benefits but today we want to explore how effective it is in helping you to grow long, thick and strong hair.
Coconut oil contains fatty acids that when applied to your hair will penetrate inside the hair shaft and as a result will reduce protein loss from hair.
As you may or may not know, your hair needs an adequate amount of proteins to grow. That prevention of protein loss will go a long way in stimulating more hair growth.
There are two main ways you can use coconut oil for hair growth.
1. You can use it prior to washing if you have oily hair and don't want to keep it in as it will only make your hair more oily.
In this case, you can apply it to your hair overnight before washing. Now if you can’t leave it in overnight, make sure you let it sit in for at least one hour before washing your hair.
You can use coconut oil in your hair after washing and conditioning if you have dry hair.
Note: make sure that you are only using Virgin Coconut oil that has not gone through a ton of processing.
#6 – Using Aloe Vera For Hair Growth
Where I live we have the Aloe Vera plant growing in our back yard.
It is a plant that has thick leaves with the edges a bit spikey and when you cut the leaves, there’s a gel-like substance inside of them.
While this gel-like substance is very bitter to taste directly, it has some amazing benefits when used directly on your head.
That is, Aloe Vera is an amazing remedy for natural hair growth. Some of the benefits of using aloe vera in your hair include:
- It promotes natural hair growth.
- It helps to soothe an itchy scalp.
- You can use it to deep clean oily hair.
- It Strengthens and repairs hair strands.
To use aloe vera, the best option would be to get the whole leaves and cut it and then apply the gel directly to your hair and massage it in gently and then leave it in for about an hour and then wash your hair with a mild shampoo.
However, not everyone will be able to access the aloe vera leaves so the second-best option would be to buy the gel at a local store instead.
Using this remedy once every two weeks can produce amazing results.
#7 – Hot Castor Oil Treatment
Castor oil is a vegetable oil pressed from castor beans. It is an age-old folk remedy with a famously unpleasant taste.
The main component of castor oil is ricinoleic acid, a type of fatty acid shown to possess anti-inflammatory, antifungal and antibacterial properties to help combat scalp infections that prevent your hair from growing.
Castor oil is also very rich in omega-6 fatty acids, vitamin E, proteins, and other nutrients that are essential for natural hair growth.
Some people use castor oil as a hair conditioner. Others use it to prevent or treat dandruff.
The best way to use castor oil for hair growth is to give yourself a hot oil treatment.
You can put a little bit of castor oil in a bowl and microwave for about 15 seconds so that it is warm enough but not too hot to burn your scalp.
Then use your fingers to gently massage the castor oil into your hair from the roots all the way to the ends of your hair strands.
Cover your head with a shower cap and let it sit in for about 15 minutes after which you can wash your hair with a mild shampoo. And an organic deep-conditioner after that and your hair will love you for it.
When it comes to losing your hair, it is no fun at all. However, there are tips and solutions that you can apply on a daily basis to improve the quality, texture, and growth of your hair.
Keep in mind that these tips an remedies for hair growth are not an overnight miracle cure for hair loss. You have to be consistent over a period of time to yield noticeable results.
