There can be many reasons behind hair loss, from genetics to vitamin D deficiencies, alopecia, pregnancy and aging. There are also many treatments, products, and supplements available that claim to help with hair loss; however, is there anything that can actually stop it completely?
It’s no secret that what we eat has a significant impact on our skin and hair as well as our overall health – and ensuring we include plenty of vitamins and protein-rich ingredients in our diet should lead to positive results. Many people believe that a ‘Mediterranean diet’ comprising mainly of vegetables, fish, and fresh herbs can reduce the risk of developing androgenic alopecia, or slow the onset. Eating foods containing lots of vitamin D can also help improve the condition and strength of your hair.
Ginseng is said to potentially promote hair growth on the scalp as it contains phytochemicals. You could consider taking ginseng supplements or drink ginseng tea to see if this helps stop or slow down your hair loss.

Another way you can maintain the strength and quality of your hair to promote hair growth and stop hair loss is to take care of it with the correct products regularly. Coconut oil, for example, can help to bind protein in hair and protect it from breaking. When applying, massage the coconut oil into your scalp as it helps to promote better blood flow, which, as a result, can also help with hair regrowth. Another solid option? Try a hair mask that stimulates the scalp, like The Hair Fuel.
You can also whip up your own scalp stimulant treatments, like a rosemary oil mix. Naturopath and Nutritionist Anna Mitsios recommends mixing a few drops of rosemary oil with olive or coconut oil and applying it to your scalp. Leave it in for at least 10 minutes before washing it out with shampoo. Apply a leave-in detangler after conditioning, and remember to brush starting at the ends and work your way up to the roots of your hair to prevent extra brushing damage.
