Hair and Scalp Treatments That Are Natural, Safe, and Effective

If you’re experiencing a burning sensation on your scalp or you’ve noticed that you’re losing a lot more hair than you should, this may be a sign that you should finally ditch those chemical-laden hair products. Why not take advantage of what nature has to offer?

Check out these natural options to regrow your crowning glory and keep it healthy.

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera has shown to soothe a damaged scalp, thereby making it a conducive environment for hair growth. Additionally, there’s substantial scientific evidence supporting that aloe helps clean up sebum, an oily substance that clogs your follicles and impedes hair growth.

To treat your hair loss, you can either use an aloe-vera-based shampoo or cut a leaf from a live aloe vera plant, then use a spoon to collect the gel and rub it directly onto your scalp.

Onion Juice

According to a study published in the Journal of Dermatology, onion juice supports hair growth: twenty out of the twenty-three participants of the study experienced positive results.  Onions contain sulfur and the antioxidant enzyme catalase, which nourish hair follicles and facilitate the growth cycle.

Apply onion juice directly onto your scalp and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes. After that, you can rinse using your regular shampoo.


In a 2007 study, experts found that applying garlic gel, in conjunction with steroid treatment, on areas of the scalp with damaged follicles or bald patches can boost hair regrowth and strengthen the surrounding hair the gel comes into contact with. Garlic is brimming with vitamins and minerals that can effectively reverse hair loss.

You can either purchase garlic gel from a pharmacy or make it at home. Mince a clove of garlic, mix it with coconut or olive oil, and then heat and stir the mixture up a bit until warm. Set it aside and wait till it cools down, then apply it to your scalp and hair.

Egg Yolk

Results of a study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food suggest that egg yolk could boost hair growth. Egg yolk is packed with biotin, folate, vitamins A and E as well as peptides, which are all crucial for hair growth.

Before applying egg yolk to your hair, you need to mix it with olive oil. Make sure to thoroughly coat the ends of your hair and your scalp, then let the mask sit on your hair for about an hour before rinsing it.
