Why is my hair falling out/what can I do?

Noora asked
I have noticed that my hair has been shedding A LOT lately, more so than it ever has before. It doesn't seem to be thinning too much, it is already thin at the ends so I dont want to lose too much more. I drink plenty of water (the only thing I drink really) I exercise daily,I do have a relaxer, but I moisturise the crap out of it. I mean I have slight stress at college, but not enough I thought to cause hair loss. If you can't figure out why that is totally fine, but please, any suggestions?

Onion juice helps treat hair loss due to its high sulfur content, which helps improve blood circulation to the hair follicles, regenerate hair follicles and reduce inflammation.

The antibacterial properties in onion juice also help kill germs and parasites, and treat scalp infections that can cause hair loss.

In a 2002 study published in the Journal of Dermatology, almost 74 percent of the study participants who applied onion juice on the scalp experienced significant hair regrowth.

Extract the juice of one onion by grating it and then strain it. Apply the juice directly onto the scalp. Leave it on for about 30 minutes, and then wash it off. Finally, shampoo your hair.
Mix together three tablespoons of onion juice and two tablespoons of aloe vera gel. You can also add one tablespoon of olive oil. Apply this mixture onto your scalp and leave it on for at least 30 minutes before rinsing it off and shampooing your hair.

The first step that you can take to reduce hair loss is to massage your scalp with appropriate hair oil. Proper hair and scalp massage will increase blood flow to the hair follicles, condition the scalp, and enhance the strength of your hair’s roots. It will also promote relaxation and reduce feelings of stress.

You can use hair oils like coconut or almond oil, olive oil, castor oil, amla oil, or others. Add a few drops of rosemary essential oil to the base oil for better and faster results. Other types of oil that you can use are emu oil, argan oil, and wheat germ oil.

Massage any of the hair oils mentioned above onto your hair and scalp by applying light pressure with your fingertips.

Do this at least once a week.
