There are several home remedies that are believed to promote hair growth, although the scientific evidence for their effectiveness is often limited.
Here are a few commonly recommended remedies:
Massaging the scalp with oils such as coconut, castor, or olive oil can increase blood flow to the hair follicles, which may promote hair growth. It is recommended to warm the oil a little before applying and then massage gently on the scalp with your fingers for 5-10 minutes.
Aloe vera is rich in enzymes that can stimulate hair growth and repair damage. You can apply fresh aloe vera gel to your scalp and hair, or use aloe vera products, such as shampoo or conditioner, that contain aloe vera.
Onion juice is believed to be high in sulfur, which can help promote collagen production, and may also have antibacterial properties that can help fight scalp infections, both of which may promote hair growth. You can extract onion juice by grating an onion, then straining the juice through a sieve. Apply the juice to your scalp, leave it on for 15-30 minutes, and then shampoo your hair as usual.
Eggs are rich in protein, which is essential for hair growth. You can make a hair mask by mixing one egg with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, then applying it to your hair and scalp. Leave the mask on for 20- 30 minutes and then shampoo your hair as usual.
Fenugreek is a plant that has been used for centuries to promote hair growth. You can soak fenugreek seeds overnight, grind them into a paste, and then apply the paste to your hair and scalp. Leave the paste on for 30-40 minutes and then shampoo your hair as usual.
