The best hair loss treatment is in your kitchen.
I am sure you’ve heard of this before “we are what we eat”. This is very true regarding our hair. When we eat healthy food, our overall health is improved and our hair benefits too. It is better to spend our money on healthy foods, than buying expensive medicines to heal our illnesses. We can use the food that is already in our homes to promote hair growth and keep it healthy. We can also use the items in our kitchen to nourish our hair. For example eating a lot of dark green vegetables, carrots, and beans will greatly help. Another example is using garlic or onion to stop hair breakage and stimulate growth. In addition, you can make natural nourishing conditioners with eggs, avocado, castor oil, coconuts oil and more.
