Everyone faces the problem of temporary hair loss in his or her life. Even I have encountered this problem which gave me nightmares.
There can be several reasons responsible for hair loss. Healthy hair enhances one’s beauty and, hair loss can weaken beauty, which can’t be acceptable to anyone.
In this blog, I will like to share the various reasons for hair fall and, few tips that helped me a lot in reversing my hair loss in different life stages. Believe me; home remedies can go a long way.
Reasons for Temporary Hair Loss
Avoid going to Salons for various hair treatments. The use of curling irons and hot rollers can weaken your hair. Never use hair drier on your hair for drying it quickly. I did Balayage from Salon, resulting in immense hair loss after few days. It took three months to reverse the hair fall.
Going through a rough time can lead to hair loss. The Pandemic and lockdown threw our normal lifestyle out of gear and led to stress. Always try to do meditation, deep breathing to reduce stress. Exercise is also a great option to overcome anxiety.
Post-pregnancy hair loss is one of the reasons for hair loss in ladies. Though I never had hair fall post-pregnancy.
Deficiency of Micronutrients in Diet
Deficiency of Iron, B-Complex, Zinc, and amino acids also results in temporary hair loss.
Tips to Reverse Temporary Hair Loss
Guava leaves have been a miracle solution for hair loss and beneficial in hair thickening that promotes rapid growth. Hair fall is a result of unhealthy scalp conditions.
Guava leaves have analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and anti-oxidant properties, which improve scalp health, such as dandruff. They also contain vitamin B and C, which nourish the follicles and aid hair growth.

Onion Juice is the best and readily available in our house to reverse hair fall. It contains sulphur which promotes hair growth. You should apply twice a week on your scalp, leave for two hours, and then wash with a mild shampoo. Folks, please do try.

Massaging by applying Argon-Oil on Hair at night and leaving overnight is highly beneficial for hair health.
Including Micronutrients in your Diet
Your diet should include Iron-rich food for good and healthy hair. Poultry, seafood, beans, dark green leafy vegetables are excellent Iron sources.
Biotin (Vitamin B7)
Poultry, eggs, seafood, peas, nuts, and seeds are good biotin sources. It is a must for proper hair regrowth.
Zinc plays a vital role in strengthening your hair growth. Poultry, eggs, seafood, beans, peas, nut and seeds, and Oyster are a rich source of zinc.
These are building blocks of proteins. Some amino acids such as Cysteine and L-lysine play a unique role in keeping you healthy and growing. We can get plenty of amino acids through a healthy diet. Cottage-cheese, fish, eggs, seeds and nuts, whole-grains, and meat is an excellent source of amino acids.
Baldness is genetic and there is no remedy for this. Baldness is not any state specific. You have to go for hair-transplant if you want back your hair.
