4 Natural Hair Loss Remedies that Work

Hair loss is becoming more common. Some believe one, of many causes, might be the high levels of manmade toxins in our soil, water, and air. These toxins may be accumulating in the human system causing direct hair loss or other conditions/diseases which hair loss may be a symptom.

There are ways to take the offensive and adapt with these 4 natural hair loss remedies that work. If your hair is already thinning or, in some cases, showing patches of baldness these remedies may be a good start at strengthening and regrowing new hair without the use of chemicals.

From the Sea

A little known hair loss remedy called Viviscal could work for some people. It comes from the sea and Healthline describes the ingredients,

“It contains a marine complex known as AminoMar C, which is a mineral-rich combination trusted source of shark and mollusk powder, organic silica, and vitamin C (derived from acerola cherry). These ingredients can help regenerate new cells and strengthen existing cells.”

This is the full conclusion from an archived study of a marine protein supplement (MPS) used in Viviscal. The double-blind placebo controlled study was conducted at the Ablon Skin Institute Research Center, Manhattan Beach, CA in 2015 concluding that,

“Similar to previous studies, the ingredients in MPS tablets promote hair growth in women suffering from temporary thinning hair. The current study further demonstrated the ability of this product to decrease hair loss. MPS continues to demonstrate an excellent safety profile.”

Talk to your physician or naturopathic doctor about trying Viviscal.

Red-Ginseng Rhizomes 

Severe hair loss can be due to misguided cell signaling often presenting as alopecia, a medical hair loss condition. It turns out that red-ginseng rhizomes may help rebalance cell signaling that has gone haywire and killed hair cells causing apoptosis (aka cell death). Red-ginseng rhizomes have shown to stop the apoptosis process. This, in turn, allows for new hair growth.

“In several in vivo experiments, topical application of ginseng extract or ginsenosides was reported to enhance hair growth. Rhizomes of P. ginseng (red ginseng) containing a considerable amount of ginsenoside Ro inhibited the activity of 5α-reductase [alopecia causing cells].”

The study continues with research of another variety of ginseng called Parribacus japonicas rhizome extract which exhibits even higher quantities of ginsenosides but may be more difficult to obtain.

Look into red ginseng for hair loss application.

Rosemary’s Baby

Rosemary is a pungent herb used to enhance savory dishes like red meat and hearty fish recipes. Ow it looks as if this her has been linked to hair growth equivalent to over-the-counter (OTC) pharmaceuticals.

A study published by Science Direct titled, ‘Formulation and evaluation of hair growth enhancing effects of oleogels made from Rosemary and Cedar wood oils’ stated that,

“The formulation containing rosemary oil (10 %) and propylene glycol (Batch 3) had the best hair growth enhancing effect similar to that obtained from commercial preparations of minoxidil (2 %).”

Mixing about five drops with a “carrier oil” such as jojoba or argan and massaging it into the scalp 5-7 times per week could, over time, stimulate hair growth.


PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is tge process of removing blood from a patient and spinnining it in a centrifuge to seperate the plasma. The plasma is then injected into the compromised area (in this case the scalp but PRP can be used for joints, muscles, etc). Once injected it acts like an influx of stem cells, basically a clean slate to be programmed into the cell needed for that area.

According to WebMD,

“The whole procedure takes around 10 minutes, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. Most people get the treatment once a month for 3 months, with a follow-up treatment every 3 to 6 months.”

Talk to your doctor about finding a specialist in PRP to see if it’s the right path for your hair regrowth.

It won’t happen overnight but these 4 natural hair loss remedies that work could, over time, get you the hair growth you’ve been missing.
