Often the problem with treating hair loss is you don’t start dealing with it until it has become quite severe. Don’t worry, with most hair conditions this is never too late – but eating useful vitamins, keeping stress out of your life and other lifestyle changes can keep hair loss at bay from day one.

And you don’t have to be looking to drugs and medications in the first instance. Natural substances rich in those vitamins, whether taken orally or topically are bound to make a difference. The really good oils are not anything special – their names are well known to us and it is likely you are either using them as a part of your diet already, they are an ingredient of a food you already eat or you use them as a cooking aid.

We would like to focus on 5 specific oils which are especially good for preventing hair loss:

Coconut Oil

The great thing about coconut oil is it is able to penetrate the hair shaft and then seal it which in turn prevents any further moisture being lost from it. This encourages volume in the hair and keeps it strong. Coconut oil also contains lauric acid which combats the bacteria, fungi and viruses which infect the scalp.

Apply directly to your wet hair and leave in place for an hour and then shampoo (leaving the coconut oil in place as you wash to act as a moisturiser.)

Olive Oil

Olive oil can be used in the bathroom as well as the kitchen. It moisturises and conditions the hair as it penetrates the hair shafts.

Massage warm olive oil into your scalp and leave for about an hour. Wash with a mild shampoo being careful not to strip away the oil.

Almond Oil

Almond Oil is rich in all of those nutrients which are good for the hair and the body: vitamin E, D, monounsaturated fatty acids, proteins, potassium and zinc. The presence of calcium and magnesium moisturises the hair and so, in preventing it from drying, also reduces hair loss.

Warm a little of the oil and rub gently into the scalp. Let it remain on the scalp as long as possible before using a mild shampoo.

Castor Oil

The anti-bacterial and anti-fungus properties in castor oil protect hair against scalp infections. Castor oil also contains ricinoleic acid which enhances the circulation of blood to the scalp and hence improves hair growth.

Massage onto the scalp and allow it to stay on the hair for about 1 hour.

Lavender Oil

Like castor oil, Lavender oil helps to regulate the blood flow in the scalp and so promotes good hair growth. It has regenerative properties which help treatments like dry scalp, psoriasis and dandruff.

Massage into the scalp before a mild shampoo.
