Natural ways to stop a receding hairline

A receding hairline is one of the most common problems in the world, especially as we grow older. It can become a great source of stress and misery for us. However, it’s important to understand that It’s not an entirely helpless situation. While there may not be any permanent cure to receding hairlines, there definitely are steps you can take to greatly minimize the damage, or even stop the process!

However, to understand how to stop a receding hairline, we must first know why it happens in the first place.

Genetics: Hair loss and receding hairlines can be entirely hereditary – and is often one of the most common connections found in pattern baldness.

Medication: There are some form of medication that can result in hair loss – especially medication for cancer, depression, heart disease etc. While some of these medications may be mandatory for some, it’s important to look into if you’re using any non-vital medication or substance that can result in hair loss.

Improper Diet: Hair loss is one of the direct symptoms of the lack of certain vitamins and nutrients in your daily diet.

An Unhealthy Body: Baldness has been linked directly to obesity and is often regarded as one of the effects of having a very unhealthy lifestyle.

Stress: Hair loss has been proven to be one of the most common causes of stress, emotional or physical. This is also one of the most common reasons for hair loss at an early age, other than genetics.

Hormonal Changes: Hair loss has been found to be one of the effects from hormonal changes, in both male and female. Menopause, has been found to have led to thinning hair (not in all cases).

Now that we’ve covered the reasons as to why one may suffer from a receding hairline, let’s go into what you should be doing to halt the process:

Scalp Massages: Stimulating your scalp helps to improve blood flow and reinvigorates your hair follicles. Massage your hair daily to promote hair growth and it acts as an amazing way to reduce stress. We recommend incorporating Amlaki Signature Hair Oil or Amlaki Goodness Oil into your massage routine for the best results!

Take care of your body: Treating your body right is not just the answer to a receding hairline, but many of life’s problems! Don’t stress as much, and learn to relax. Get a regular exercise routine going, and adopt a natural, healthy and nutritious diet. You will feel younger, stronger and healthier with just a few weeks’ effort. Your body and your hair will thank you for it!

Rethink your haircare habits: It’s time to ask yourself – do you really understand how to best take care of your hair? If the answer is no, it’s time to change it up! Start handling your hair more gently and never back comb your hair. We would also recommend against tying your hair very tightly. Limit your usage of heating and styling in your hair routine – and stop relying on synthetic beauty products. Find the right hairbrush for your hair. If you have curly hair, a bristle brush is perfect. Those with straight or wavy hair can go for a wide-toothed comb.
