The pandemic has left many suffering from stress, anxiety and depression, which could very well be the cause of our hair loss. To solve this perpetual hair loss problem, below is a list of some DIY hair routines that you can try and help in the final solution to this problem. Read on to find out the benefits they offer and what would work for your scalp and hair.
1. Onion juice
Onion juice is high in antioxidants and sulfur that show quick growth results. Onion juice is said to have several benefits, not only does it promote hair growth, but it also helps treat dandruff problems – which happens to be one of the top causes of hair loss. Freshly squeezed onion juice at home is said to be the most effective at curbing this problem. It adds shine to your hair and makes it look shiny and healthy.

2. Coconut milk
Coconut milk is another hair growth staple and helps control excessive hair loss. It also cleanses the scalp and nourishes the hair. Coconut milk, like onion juice, is very effective at removing dandruff. Once the dandruff problems are resolved, the hair loss problem eventually slows down and the benefits of coconut milk are visible. It effectively nourishes a dry scalp, but does not cleanse it. And because the scalp is treated when using coconut milk, the hair looks healthy and shiny too.

3. Yogurt hair mask
We all know that yogurt contains lactic acid, a very important and useful ingredient for scalp nutrition. A mixture of yogurt, apple cider vinegar, and honey can be very beneficial for your hair. This mask reduces breakage and strengthens the hair. Also, the protein quotient in yogurt is very high, which makes it possible to provide the necessary nutrition your scalp needs. Research shows that it also helps in promoting hair growth.

4. Green tea
Green tea reduces hair loss due to its antioxidant properties. Pour green tea over the scalp and let it sit for an hour. Wash off with cold water. The properties found in green tea are particularly beneficial for eliminating the hormones that cause hair loss. These properties enable the possibility of stronger hair growth and not the other way around. The stimulation of the hair follicles is very effective because of the intended properties of green tea.
