    I found this information quite interesting as I started getting hair loss about 4 months ago, and I’m only 38.I’m interested in trying some of the advice above, and I have a few questions.
    1. If I use the garlic to rub on the area, should I use the crushed garlic with anything like oil, water, and also how long do I leave it on my head for, like 1 hour or 1 day before I can have a wash? I am worried about the smell, but if it helps, then it will be worth it.
    2. Does anyone know if exposure to sun makes things worse? I live in a hot climate and maybe I need to protect my head, but I also worry if I use a cap, it will rub more of my hair off.
    I appreciate these may be silly questions, but to me, it’s really quite an issue loosing my hair.
    So if anyone’s got some more advice I would be most grateful.
    Cheers, Pete

      Hi Pete,
      You can use coconut oil to add to the garlic mixture if you like. Apply to the hair and leave in as long as you can bear. Do this often and you will definitely see results.

      Wearing a cap will almost certainly make matters worse.
      I always say no hair is better than bad hair – so consider shaving it all off if your head is a nice shape!

    I have the same problem with hair loss, but I don’t like the idea of rubbing garlic on my head, so I started using the already prepared remedies (I think you can click on the picture in this post) and all I have to do is put some drops of the mixture in some juice or milk 3 times a day. Now I have to wait! It’s only been a week since I started taking the ready made remedy, but I’m feeling positive.

      Hi Todd,
      Yes these products we endorse here are all made with natural ingredients and they are very popular. It’s hard to find good homeopathic and herbal products that actually work but the ones I have found are awesome.

    Is this for real? You can actually regrow hair? I thought I’d have to accept that I was going bald and I was totally preparing to shave my head instead of looking like an old man. I don’t want implants nor do I want to wear some ridiculous wigs, but if I can regrow my own hair with natural remedies, then I’ll do whatever ridiculous things I need to do to go back to having a full set of hair. If I could have my hair back by following the guides here I’ll donate a thousand bucks to charity. That’s a promise.

      Hi Samuel,
      I think if you are already bald, it might be a hard task to get your hair to grow back but if you are just balding and want to slow down the process, then trying these remedies is definitely worth a shot.

    The guy in the picture makes me sad because he looks exactly like me right now. My wife took a picture of me and my son wrestling on the floor the other day and the shot was angled from the top pointing to my head. Wow.. my head looked like a burnt down forest. I had little hair left on top and it looked as though I had little time left until anyone could notice my baldness even from the front. To be honest I have very little hope to regrow my hair, but I’ll try the suggestions here as a last resort. Wish me luck fellow baldies.

      LOL.. Mark, you are funny.. I know some of these remedies seem far fetched but many people have said they work, personally I would give ReGrow Plus a go!

    Hair loss is a common problem in both men (80%) and women (50%) all over the world [1]. Hair loss is called alopecia and it can be permanent or non-permanent/temporary loss of hair. The most common hair loss is non-permanent where re-growth of hair can be achieved with adequate treatment. Proper and adequate nutrition plays a very important role in skin health and beauty. Causes of hair loss include sudden or severe emotional stress, improper nutrition, severe infections, major surgeries, drugs (e.g. retinoids, beta-blockers, and birth control pills), anemia, and certain diseases. Although hair loss is common, but unfortunately, no single 100% effective treatment is yet to be discovered. Regarding hair loss or alopecia, both medical and over-the-counter natural products are recommended.
    Among natural remedies for hair loss include supplementation with iron, biotin and zinc along with stress management. Many manufacturer companies or online firms claim their products to be very effective for hair loss. Beware of such products until your doctor recommends these products for you. No authentic evidence I could find about the use of apple cider vinegar and arnica as a therapy for hair loss. However, studies reveal the affectivity of garlic gel in alopecia [2]. Similarly, topical crude onion juice significantly enhances the re-growth of hair [3]. Natural henna does nothing with hair growth but recovering lost hair color.

    Can totally attest to the effectiveness of apple cider vinegar and coconut oil. Apple cider vinegar, aside from promoting hair growth, leaves your hair with a nice, healthy sheen. The only thing that turned me off when I first started using it was the smell, but eventually got used to it, and you really have to rinse it carefully. Coconut oil, which I used when I was taking meds that made my hair fall off, adds volume to the hair. It’s oil but it won’t make your hair go limp from oiliness.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote
    the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit,
    but instead of that, this is fantastic blog. An excellent read.
    I’ll certainly be back.
