Natural Home Remedies for Hair Growth

1. Taoist Soap Regime — A Home Remedy for Hair Growth

  1. Scalp massage everyday for 10 minutes: This means you use your finger tips, or a massage machine, or tool, to massage your whole head (not just affected areas, but also back of head, and behind the neck, for a good 10 minutes a day, building up to 20 minutes a day). This is important to start with as it de-calcifies your scalp, and helps push out toxins to prevent and stop inflammation (due to increased blood flow). This is officially the most under-rated method for helping hair
  2. Collagen intake 2 times a day (powder form — not pill): Ideally you want to get a beef based collagen for this, as beef amino acids are one of the most bio-available amino acids for the human body, contrary to what people have said about vegetable collagen, which simply is no match in my opinion and experience from it.
  3. Using the Taoist soap at least 2 times a week — this is a no-brainier — just as a support to help stop inflammation, which is the root cause of hair falling out the scalp for men and women — using this organic soap on the scalp, in tiny amounts (finger tip rub on soap, and rub direct on scalp) does wonders for supporting hair. Visually this soap also helps expand the hair strand diameter itself after washing.
  4. Walking 30 minutes a day (see details) — this is probably going to be the most ignored part of this regime because most people will think, oh i already do this, and do that for my health and go to the gym. Well yes, but the point is to do what is challenging to you, cardiovascular-ly. Many people suffering from hair thinning are office jobs or jobs that involve not moving a lot — each time you are sitting for more than an hour, your body oxidizes faster, and needs to move. This does not support hair, let alone a youthful appearance overall.
  5. Protein Diet for 2 weeks at least — this is a medical diet, and not meant to be a permanent way of life. Its only to be used for resolving or helping resolve hormone imbalances — be it insulin related or any other. Most people have some sort of insulin issue, or other hormone imbalance, which is resolved or helped by going on a diet called the protein diet — this is where you are allowed to only eat lean beef and leafy greens that must be steamed not raw (there is a big reason behind this) — yes even for breakfast. Good news is, after 2 weeks, this diet already shows you the power of what it can do to you.

Homemade tips for hair growth (faster) — other than hair thickening

The remedy that actually helps with thinning hair, will directly help with faster growth of hair too — so this article can also be titled as a homemade tips for faster hair growth — but I had to choose one, so I choose the other title, but the same methods apply for faster hair growth, as they do for improving hair growth.

Things you should be aware of — and possibly stay away from

There are a lot of products being sold as hair loss cures that fix hair single handedly — this is a rare occurrence, whilst it is possible depending on the individual, but I do not recommend using the following below:

Viviscal Supplements and Shampoo

This has been a heavily advertised range of products which are usually aimed at people looking for supplements for hair thinning. But the problem is, a lot of the supplements ingredients are just pilled up together, and this is not when things work for what you are trying to achieve, hair growth or hair maintenance. There is no harm in trying it, and in no way I am trying to bad mouth them, but it simply is something I won’t recommend.

Alpecin Shampoo and caffeine shampoos

These caffeine based shampoos, from Alpecin shampoo, to other similar German shampoos were based on a study that was conducted by the companies themselves to make it look like hair grows when caffeine is applied topically — but it turns out not to actually be true for many reasons.

Excess Sexual Activity — Anti-Remedy for Hair Growth

Aloe Vera for Hair Home Remedies


This is another one of the expensive herbs often promoted for a lot of health benefits — but the problem is, people don’t realize when eastern medical practitioners talk about a benefit of a herb, they are saying the benefits only when used in combination of a formula, not as a single ingredient, ever!

Onion Juice as a Remedy for Hair loss

This is another single ingredient, and as already mentioned, this is not a complete remedy — it may work one time, and may cause problems long term — is better, to develop a regime, and make it 1 remedy altogether, such as the Taoist soap regime as mentioned at the top of this post.

Geranium and Rosemary Oil

These oils are often in essential oil format — and this is something people with hair thinning, hair loss and scalp inflammation should stay away from. Essential oils of all types are often promoted as hair growth oils, but this is far from the whole truth — yes some people may have accidentally seen results to a small extent but this is not going to last long term (if continued).

Genetics and Hair loss — Final Conclusion

Doctors have often told patients that if you have genetic hair loss, and that there is little you can do to escape it — this is not actually true and is a misunderstanding of genetics.

Bonus Addictions to Hair Growth — Some not so Natural

There are many ways to support hair growth — but there are sometimes things you are doing which affect hair growth rates, which need to be tended to. Here are another bunch of methods which also help in addition to the regime mentioned above.

  1. Use Keratin Products to get a fuller look
