Homemade shampoo

Prepare a homemade shampoo by adding 2 tbsp of cur, 2 tbsp of raw gram powder and 1 tbsp of lemon juice. Apply this mixture on your scalp and hair and leave it on for an hour before finally rinsing it off.


Fenugreek mask

Balanced diet

One of the prominent signs of preventing hair loss in men are to add more mineral supplements in the diet such as calcium, magnesium and zinc; eating green leafy vegetables; meditation to reduce stress and anxiety; and not to brush hair when it is wet.


Herbal remedies

Make a mixture of amla (goose berry), reetha and shikakai and boil them in 2 litres of water till the liquid reduces to half. This mixture should then be used to massage the scalp along with coconut oil or aloe vera gel. Leave it on for half an hour. Do this at least three times in a week.
