Even if your hairline is receding, it isn’t a foregone conclusion that you’ll go bald. A receding hairline is indeed the first tangible sign of significant hair loss, but it is also true that it isn’t irreversible.
In fact, it is very much possible for you to stop your hairline from receding or, at the very least, slow it down. The only problem is that it requires a rare kind of commitment and dedication.That’s not all, though.
To stop or slow down a receding hairline, you will also need to change the things that you’re most used to in your life. You’ll need to make lifestyle changes, styling changes, and routine changes. You’ll even need to make dietary changes, something that most people find incredibly challenging.
As you’re looking for ways and means to regrow your hairline naturally, you’re already exhibiting the determination to see it through. We’ll help you by telling you everything you need to know to regrow your hairline naturally in this in-depth guide.
However, before you go about making wholesale changes in your life, we suggest you make sure you have a receding hairline. To that end, we’ll start this guide by helping you figure out this simple question.

Are You Sure Your Hairline is Receding?
The American Academy of Dermatology says that it is normal for an individual to lose up to 100 hair strands per day. According to the academy, it is even normal for you to lose more than 100 hair strands per day in specific but temporary situations.
For example, women lose a lot of hair during their pregnancies and after giving birth too. However, they’re usually well aware of this side effect of such hormonal changes in their body and know that the hair loss is temporary.
Another example is how most men’s frontal hairline changes between the years of 18 and 30. This change results in a mature hairline. Unfortunately, most men don’t realize that this is normal.
Instead, this change causes them to worry about the receding hairline caused by male pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia. Therefore, it is possible that you’re also mistaken about your hairlines and that it isn’t receding but just rearranging itself naturally.
If you’re wondering about how to tell them apart, know that maturing hairlines and receding hairlines differ in one critical way, i.e., howthey occur.
A maturing hairline always moves back from the forehead uniformly or evenly. There is no special pattern or area where the recession is more or less. In contrast, a receding hairline is caused by male pattern baldness and will always follow a specific pattern, i.e., the hair above your temples will go much faster than the hair above your eyes and nose.
Is It Possible to Regrow Hairline Naturally?
A maturing hairline is completely natural and the direct result of bodily changes taking place as you move from your teens to your tweens. Since it is natural, there is no real way for you to stop it or even slow it down.
A receding hairline being caused by male pattern baldness, however, is a form of imbalance that is caused by a genetic predisposition. In male pattern baldness, excess testosterone in your body gets converted to dihydro testosterone or DHT.
DHT interferes with hair follicles and prevents them from growing healthy hair. In fact, prolonged DHT interference can push your hair follicles to become stunted. This will result in your hair follicles becoming completely dormant and unable to grow hair.
It is very much possible to regrow hairline naturally. There are substances in nature that can interrupt interactions between DHT and your hair follicles. These substances are known as DHT blockers. Similarly, there are substances in nature that carry nutrients that are very nourishing for hair.
The use of these substances, in combination, can revitalize hair follicles while simultaneously countering the adverse effects of excess DHT in the scalp. The only problem is that there are several naturally-occurring substances with such properties and all of them don’t work on every individual.
For example, while one may work for your friend, it may not work for you or vice versa. Therefore, re-growing hairline naturally can be a tedious and time-consuming process and you may have to try multiple solutions to see which one works for you. In fact, you may have to wait for weeks or even months for the right results.
To help you along, we’ve collated all the effective ways of re-growing hairline naturally on the rest of this page.
Eliminate Medical Conditions and Hormonal Imbalances
Hormonal imbalances are almost always the real cause behind hair loss and a receding hairline. In fact, anything that can cause hormonal imbalances in your body can result in a receding hairline. Consider the following most common causes of hair loss and their association with hormones.
- Male pattern baldness is caused by excess DHT, which is created when there is excess testosterone in the body.
- Hair loss related to pregnancies are due to the sudden withdrawal of pregnancy hormones, once the baby is born.
- Overexposure to pollution or the sun can cause hair loss because it creates an imbalance in the hormones in your body.
- Some medications and procedures such as chemotherapy cause temporary hair loss because they affect various hormone-producing glands.
- When thyroid or other similar glands stop working properly or get overstimulated, you may start losing hair because either their hormonal production goes down or gets ramped up.
- Stress can result in hair loss because it causes various bodily functions to become imbalanced.
If the root cause for your receding hairline is a medical condition or hormonal imbalance, then it will be more diffused. In other words, you won’t just see a receding hairline but will notice widespread hair loss all over your head.
Moreover, you’re likely to see other signs of these hormonal imbalances in other parts of your body. Pay special attention to your skin, nails, digestion, and even sleep patterns as all of them can get affected by medical conditions and hormonal imbalances.
If your hairline is receding because of these types of reasons, then you need to do is deal with the medical condition first. For instance, there is no way for you to regrow your hairline if you’re going through chemotherapy. Similarly, if you’ve just given birth, then you should expect to lose hair until the effects of pregnancy have worn off.
Change Your Lifestyle
For the majority of people, a receding hairline is caused by poor lifestyle choices and dietary habits. This section caters to the former, while the latter is dealt with in the next section.
The big question is which of your lifestyle elements may be causing you to lose hair. In this section, we’ll help you pick the most common areas of concern when it comes to your lifestyle and your hair health.
Evaluate Your Surrounding Environment
If you drink tap water, you cannot expect to have healthy hair. The tap water we receive contains chemicals that aren’t really that good for our hair. While these chemicals are added to keep the water clean and free of microbial action, our bodies aren’t meant to ingest such chemicals daily.
Since we drink this water every day, these chemicals quickly accumulate inside our body and create problems. The foremost of these chemicals is fluoride.
Excess fluoride can adversely affect the natural biome inside our body to the point that our basic bodily functions start stuttering and we start experiencing autoimmune-related problems. Further, autoimmune-related problems can also make the body more sensitive to DHT, which causes our hairline to recede.
Similarly, other environmental conditions can also cause our hairlines to recede, such as excess sunlight and high pollution. Identifying these potential causes and weeding them out of your lifestyle will contribute to your efforts of growing your hairline naturally.
Stay Away from Stressful Scenarios
Clinical evidence suggests that stress can cause hair loss, which usually shows up in the form of a receding hairline. In the study cited above, it was found that “young women under major exam stress” showed an increased rate of hair loss than girls in the control group.
Hair loss and stress can also create a vicious cycle that most people find difficult to get out off. If you get stressed out by looking at how much hair you’re losing, that stress could cause you to lose even more hair. In simple terms, there is a close association between stress and hair loss.
This is why if you want to regrow your hairline naturally, one of the first things you should do is lead a less stressful life. This could mean anything from sorting things out with your family members to fixing issues at work.
However, some of you may have a high-pressure job where stress is part of the job description or others may have family issues that cannot be resolved easily. For such scenarios, the best option is to find ways of de-stressing when you’re not associating with the element causing stress.
The best way to de-stress is to practice yoga in combination with deep breathing exercises. The entire concept of yoga is designed towards helping people deal with stress. You can even try other similar disciplines such as aromatherapy, body massages, or vacations.
Further, if your receding hairline is causing you stress, then we recommend cutting your hair short. If you don’t notice a lot of hair loss, you’ll feel less stressed, and this may slow down the hairline recession.
Learn the Right Hair Care Techniques
The way you manage your hair is also a part of your lifestyle and, as is obvious, it has a huge impact on the health of your hair. Most of us, unfortunately, make a lot of mistakes when it comes to hair care.
The men are usually at fault for their rough and tumble attitude to their hair, while the women are usually guilty of over styling. The following are some suggestions and tips that will prevent you from damaging your hair simply out of lack of knowledge and neglect.
Reduce How Often You Wash Your Hair
Shampooing is traumatic for your hair no matter how careful you are or how good your shampoo is. Even just rinsing your hair can be a problem. You see, when hair is wet, it is very delicate. In fact, when it is wet, it is very susceptible to frizz and breakage.
There is no real way to avoid this problem except by reducing the frequency with which you wash your hair. By being careful of the kind of environments you spend your time in and avoiding commercial hair care products, it is possible for you to avoid washing your hair more than once or twice a week.
The best example of this is the “curly girl” method. Also known as “no-poo,” this method requires you to avoid shampoos altogether. Instead, it counsels only the use of conditioners in the initial phases and only oils for more advanced followers.
In fact, as your hair gets used to the “curly girl” method, you’ll realize that your hair doesn’t need to be washed more than once a week or even a fortnight. Since you won’t be washing your hair so often and you’ll be keeping it moisturized (this is important as you’ll see in the next section) through conditioners or oils, you’ll see less hair loss. As a result, your hairline will stop receding.
Make Sure Your Hair is Never Dry
We’ve explained above that if your hair gets wet, then it is prone to damage. However, the opposite of this is true too. If your hair is not well-moisturized, then it will become brittle and weak from inside. This will not only make it more prone to breaking, but will also make it look listless, lifeless, and limp.
The best way to do this is to use hair products that don’t pull away the natural oils created in your scalp. The majority of mainstream shampoos, for example, tend to strip the hair and scalp of these natural oils.
Similarly, some hair products coat the hair in artificial substances that prevents them from absorbing moisture from the scalp. These types of products also end up drying the hair, except over the long term instead of immediately.
The best way to keep your hair moisturized is to use a natural conditioner after washing it or oiling it regularly. You can also try to keep your hair covered in the sun to keep it from losing moisture through evaporation.
Learn to Dry Your Hair Properly
Even if you manage to reduce the number of times you wash your hair every week, your hair will still be at risk of breaking. Therefore, when you wash your hair, you need to find a way to reduce the potential damage that excess moisture can cause.
After a wash, how you dry your hair can play a huge role too. For example, if you aggressively rub your hair with your towel, then you’re already making a big mistake because aggressive rubbing causes the hair to break. The proper way is to squeeze sections of the hair with the towel gently.
Similarly, another mistake you may be making is using a cotton towel. Cotton can hook and grab hair strands, leading not only to breakage but also unnecessary stress on the hair.
Microfiber towels are better for drying hair because the fabric absorbs more water without catching and pulling hair. Another way is to use a microfiber brush. The microfiber bristles on these brushes allow them to pull out water even from near the roots of your hair.
Once you’ve dealt with excess water in your hair after a wash, the best thing to do is to let your hair air dry. Air drying is the safest and healthiest option for your hair.
However, if you’re usually short on time and can’t do without the use of a blow dryer, then we recommend using a natural heat protectant to shield your hair from all the heat generated by the dryer. Most naturally occurring oils, including castor oil, argan oil, coconut oil, and avocado oil, are great for this kind of use.
You can even mix some essential oils into the carrier oils such as peppermint oil, jojoba oil, rosemary oil, lavender oil, cedarwood oil, pumpkin seed oil, tea tree oil, sage oil, lemongrass oil, or others to boost the nourishing and protecting qualities of your homemade heat protectant.
Use the Right Type of Brushes or Combs
Believe it or not, even the type of brush or comb you use could be contributing to your receding hairline. Most of us make the mistake of using brushes and combs with bristles that are closely spaced.
Their proximity to each other causes these bristles to catch and pull hair. While your hair may already be brittle or weak, using brushes and combs with closely spaced bristles only aggravates the issue further.
If you were to use brushes and combs with widely spaced bristles in place of those with closely spaced bristles, you would be relieving your hair and scalp from a lot of pressure.
Wide-toothed combs are especially recommended to women with hair that gets tangled easily. As a result, they’re easy to find in the market. In terms of brushes, there are those that are made specifically for people with thinning hair.
Another alternative will be to use soft boar bristle brushes. Since they’re soft, they’re gentle, but they offer another benefit too. Boar bristles mimic human hair. As a result, they can absorb the natural oils produced by your scalp and spread it through the entire length of your hair.
These oils are very beneficial for hair as they not only nourish but also protect them from environment-related risks such as excess sunlight and moisture.
Make the Right Styling Decisions
While poor hair care regimes and techniques degrade the health of our hair over time, poor styling decisions cause quick and severe plummets in hair health. In fact, next to male pattern baldness, use of hair styling tools and products is one of the most common reasons for early onset of hair loss and receding hairlines.
If you’ve realized that your hairline is receding, then you’ll need to compromise on your styling preferences. You’ll have to give up or, at least, reduce the use of various styling devices and products. Consider the following.
Avoid Using Hot Tools
Whichever way you look at it, using hot tools is never beneficial for hair. The damage hot tools cause to our hair isn’t one-time either. It is cumulative, which means the more you use these tools, the quicker you’ll lose hair and the faster your hairline will recede.
To understand why you just need to understand that our hair isn’t meant to handle the kind of heat that hot tools generate. In fact, the entire working principle behind hot tools is the use of high temperatures to break down hydrogen bonds formed by various components of the hair so that its physical state changes. This is bound to damage hair.
However, just because you have to choose between your receding hairline and the use of hot tools doesn’t mean that you have to choose between keeping your hair and styling your hair. It is very much possible to style your hair without using hot tools.
For instance, sunlight and plain air are excellent substitutes for hair dryers. Further, you can tie your hair in a turban with a microfiber towel or even wear a microfiber hair cap to dry your hair. This way, while your hair dries, you can do other tasks such as getting dressed or even having your breakfast.
You can even use the cold setting on the hair dryer to dry your hair. The same cool setting of the hair dryer can be very useful if you like to straighten your hair. All you’ll need to do is brush your hair with the hair dryer on the cold setting till it dries.
There are even ancient techniques of straightening your hair where you dry them and clip them to the head for an extended period of time. When it comes curling your hair, you can use non-heat-based hair curlers such as flexible rods, pillow-soft curlers, or even peco curlers.
Use the Right Styling Tools
Most non-heat-based hair styling tools and techniques are very time-consuming and effort-intensive. This could put them beyond the reach of many individuals who don’t have the time and energy to devote to such elaborate methods.
If you’re one such individual but still need to style your hair regularly, then the least you can do is minimize the damage caused by styling tools. The best way to do this is to find styling tools with specific features and benefits.
Firstly, you’ll need to get a styling tool with variable or multiple heat settings. If you can manipulate the temperatures of the styling tool, then you can keep it from applying too much heat to your hair.
Further, you’ll want to buy styling tools with specific technologies. You should get a hair dryer with the latest technologies for preventing or reducing heat damage.
We recommend the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer simply because it was specifically developed to prevent heat damage. It also helps that it is far more effective and efficient than all its competitors. This hair dryer from Dyson is quite expensive, though.
If you don’t want to spend so much, then you need to look at hair dryers that offer technologies like ceramic, tourmaline ceramic, and ionic. These technologies also minimize heat damage, but to a lesser extent.
The same principle applies to curling irons and flat irons. You need to look for variable temperatures and the same technologies mentioned above.
In the curling iron category, the Xtava 5 in 1 Professional Curling Iron and Wand Set is one of the best options because it is gentle on the hair and can serve multiple purposes.
If you only straighten your hair, then you should consider the BIO IONIC Onepass Straightening Iron. It is not only gentle on the hair, but also very fast, which means minimal heat exposure.
Color Your Hair Naturally
Chemicals are as damaging for hair as heat. This is why people who color their hair often have weak, brittle hair. In fact, repeated exposure to such chemicals can speed up hair loss and hairline recession significantly. The same styling tips we gave above applieshere – either you stop coloring your hair or you find a natural way to achieve the same results.
It is very much possible to color your hair with natural substances. While the final result will not be as vibrant as what you get with commercial dyes, it will still look more natural and realistic.
Several naturally occurring substances can be used to color your hair such as carrot juice, beet juice, henna, lemon juice, coffee, sage, and chamomile, amongst others.
Avoid Touching Your Hair
Did you know that the more you touch your hair, the more you contribute to your receding hairline and general hair loss? Every time you use your hands while combing your hair or scrunch up your hair, you’re causing them damage. Similarly, every time you fiddle with your hair or play with, you cause them damage.
Two things can happen when you touch your hair. The first is that you transfer the oils, dust, and dirt from your fingers to your hair and the other is that you take away the natural oils that protect your hair. Both these scenarios are possible and your type of skin and hair will determine which one applies to you.
The solution is simple enough here. Stop touching your hair. Dry them, style them, apply any natural products that you have to, and then stop touching them for the rest of the day. In fact, you shouldn’t be touching your hair more than once or twice after you’ve set them for the day.
Fix Your Dietary Habits
Have you ever heard the phrase: “we are what we eat?” Well, it is true in every way possible, including the health of our hair. Therefore, if your hairline is receding, you can be sure that your dietary habits are partly responsible for it.
Therefore, if you want to regrow your hairline naturally, you will have to fix your dietary habits. You’ll need to do this immediately too because changes in diet take a while to reflect on hair health. Don’t worry, though. We’ll help you make those changes. Here is everything you’ll need to do.
Increase Water Intake
More than 60 percent of our body is made up of water. As telling as this little fact is, it only hints at the incredible importance of water in our body. Virtually every bodily function depends on water, whether you look at organ-level functions or cellular-level functions. So, dehydration affects the health of our hair too.
Lack of sufficient water intake can cause hair to lose its flexibility. This will not only affect the way it looks but also its ability to resist basic external pressures like heat, moisture, and even mechanical stress. Therefore, if you wish to regrow your hairline naturally, the easiest thing you can do is increase your water intake.
Generally, health experts recommend drinking a minimum of half gallons of water every day. It is often presented as an 8 x 8 rule where you’re supposed to have eight 8-ounce glasses every day.
Practically, this should be easy to do. If you have difficulty, though, you can start replacing the liquids you normally ingest in a regular day such as coffee, juices, soda, etc.
Avoid Over-Processed Foods
Nutrition will always be at the heart of a receding hairline since it is how hair loss begins. Unfortunately, modern-day diets consist primarily of highly-processed foods, which don’t provide much nutrition, if any.
What’s worse is that packaged foodstuffs most of us depend on today contain additives and chemicals that aren’t that beneficial for our bodies. Consider the fact that the vast majority of packaged foods contain added sugar or sweeteners.
Excess sugar in our diet causes blood sugar levels to rise significantly and consistently in our bodies. This leads to a condition called insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is pretty scary as it is since it affects every bodily function possible.
However, what makes it worse is that there is a correlation between insulin resistance and hair loss. Therefore, just by giving up highly-processed food items with high sugar content, you’ll be helping your hairline regrow naturally.
The same applies to highly-processed dairy products. These products are made from pasteurized milk. The process of pasteurization makes milk extremely difficult to digest for our bodies. As our bodies try to digest pasteurized milk, toxins that affect hair health are released.
Further, highly-processed dairy products can also create plaque in the skin that can block off pores. When this happens in the scalp, hair follicles are unable to grow hair. Over time, they become stunted and stop growing hair altogether. As a result, stopping highly-processed dairy products can also help you regrow hairline naturally.
Eat More Natural Foods
While stopping the consumption of highly-processed foods will help you avoid things that encourage receding hairline, you’ll also have to start eating foods that will boost the hairline regrowth.
This means focusing on food items that contain nutrients that help hair follicles grow healthy hair. The following is a list of the most crucial nutrients along with the food items that contain them.
If you have extremely brittle and dull hair around your hairline or elsewhere on your scalp, then this means that you don’t get enough omega fatty acids in your everyday diet.
In fact, you should know that the majority of people in the world don’t get enough omega fatty acids because they’re so difficult to get through a regular diet. Omega fatty acids are found in food items such as various types of fish, kale, sprouts, kale, nuts, flax seeds, avocados, eggs, and carrots, amongst others.
Omega fatty acids are a type of healthy fat that supports hairline regrowth by strengthening the hair follicles and making the hair strands more elastic. Stronger hair follicles prevent hair loss by holding onto the hair strands tighter while more elastic hair strands don’t break so easily under stress.
Zinc may seem like a minor mineral, but when it comes to hair health, it is pretty important. In fact, many cases of hair loss are caused by zinc deficiency. Zinc is important on the cellular level and improves tissue growth and repair work in the body. Further, zinc boosts oil production in the scalp, which is crucial to good hair health.
While these properties are great, the real reason why you should try zinc to regrow your hairline regularly is its ability to counter excess DHT in the scalp. In fact, research has found that men suffering from male pattern baldness tend to have lower zinc levels in their blood.
Zinc counters receding hairlines and male pattern baldness by preventing DHT from being produced in the scalp. Since it is DHT that causes the stunting of hair follicles, when zinc counters the production of DHT, hair follicles become more prolific.
Fortunately, it is quite easy to combat zinc deficiency. The best way is to incorporate zinc containing food items into your diet. These include meats like beef and lamb, legumes such as chickpeas and beans, seafood such as oysters and shellfish, and even dry fruits and nuts.
If you find this difficult to do, you can always start taking zinc supplements. However, you’ll have to be very careful about the dosage because excess zinc can boost hair loss instead of reducing it.
Hair is made up of keratin, which is a type of protein. The building block of proteins is amino acids. A diet that doesn’t contain sufficient protein can often lead to hair loss and a receding hairline. In contrast, if you have a protein-rich diet, you’re likelier to have healthy hair and even regrow your receding hairline.
The best sources of proteins are animals. These include food items such as eggs, chicken, turkey, and meats of various types. Consuming these food items can not only slow down hair loss but also boost hair regrowth.
Because the best sources of zinc are nonvegetarian, many vegans and vegetarians don’t get enough protein and suffer from hair loss. If you’re vegan or vegetarian, then you’ll have to pay twice as much attention to your protein intake as other people.
Food items you should look to consume a lot include peanuts, legumes, yogurt, and leafy vegetables. Protein supplements are also an option worth considering.
Iron is one of the most important minerals, not just for healthy hair but for every other bodily function. Iron deficiency leads to a condition called anemia. Anemia causes the body to weaken and become frailer.
This happens because iron is a key component of red blood cells, which are responsible for ferrying much-needed nutrients to all corners of the body, including the hair follicles in the scalp.
If the hair follicles in your scalp don’t receive sufficient oxygen and other nutrients, they won’t be able to produce enough hair and will become dormant. Moreover, if your hair follicles have already become dormant, then they will need to receive sufficient oxygen and other nutrients to become active again.
Since your hairline is receding because your hair follicles are becoming stunted, fixing iron deficiency will be very helpful in your bid to regrow your hairline. It is very easy to ensure that you’re getting enough iron.
Iron supplements are very safe and easy to take. Further, there are plenty of iron-containing food items that you can have, including seafood, red meat, whole grains, leafy vegetables, legumes, tofu, and even dark chocolate.
According to some estimates, magnesium is crucial to more than 700 functions in the body. While each of them has some impact on hair growth, two are directly related to hair health and hair loss. These are magnesium’s ability to restrict calcium and its role in protein synthesis.
When there isn’t enough magnesium in the body, calcium starts building up everywhere, including the scalp. It ends up clogging hair follicles and the result is weaker, more brittle hair. If calcium buildup remains unchecked, it can block follicles off from producing hair completely. This obviously will lead to a receding hairline.
Insufficient magnesium also affects the body’s ability to synthesize proteins. Since hair is mainly made up of protein, this affects hair growth and causes hair loss.
Like most minerals that help regrow hairline naturally, you can ensure sufficient intake of magnesium by either changing the foods you eat or taking supplements. Generally, foods that are high in fiber also tend to contain a lot of magnesium.
Therefore, foods you should look to eat more often to ensure sufficient intake of magnesium include leafy vegetables, beans, seeds, dry fruits and nuts, and dark chocolate. If you wish to boost magnesium intake, you should also avoid grease, since a lot of fat in the food can prevent absorption of magnesium in the body.
Various vitamins are also vital if you want to regrow your hairline naturally. Vitamins you should specifically focus on include:
- Vitamin A: This vitamin is important in various cellular functions. Its deficiency can cause hair loss for two reasons. The first is that it adversely affects hair follicles and the other is that it prevents the scalp from producing the oils needed to moisturize hair. As a result, consuming foods rich in vitamin A such as leafy vegetables, carrots, pumpkins, and kale can be very helpful if you’re trying to regrow your hairline naturally.
- Vitamins B Complex: It is a well-documented fact that biotin deficiency, one of the B-complex vitamins, leads to hair loss. Other vitamins in the complex are critical to other key bodily functions such as the production of red blood cells and indirectly useful to hair growth. All members of the vitamin B complex can be found in daily food items such as meats, seafood, legumes, and vegetables.
- Vitamin C: Free radicals can prevent normal cellular processes resulting in hair loss. Vitamin C is particularly good at countering the oxidative stress caused by free radicals since it is one of the best naturally-occurring antioxidants.
- Vitamin D: Like Biotin, deficiency of vitamin D has also been linked to hair loss, but in the form of alopecia areata instead of androgenetic alopecia. One research even showed that vitamin D couldboost the creation of new hair follicles. Therefore, vitamin D is not only very beneficial in slowing down or stopping the hairline recession but also re-growing it. More importantly, vitamin D is the easiest to get of all vitamins. All you’ll need to do is spend time in the sun and your body will produce vitamin D naturally. If you want a dietary source of vitamin D, consider seafood, and mushrooms.
- Vitamin E: Vitamin E compliments vitamin C since it is also an antioxidant. Increasing your intake of vitamin E can help your effort to regrow hairline naturally and there are studies to prove it too. One study found that, over eight months, people who consumed more vitamin E saw nearly 35 percent more hair growth than others who didn’t. Foods that you should consume more often to get more vitamin E include avocados, spinach, almonds, and sunflower seeds.
Choosing the Right Hair Products
The kind of hair products you’ve used in the pasthasalso contributed to your problem of a receding hairline. Therefore, if you want to regrow your hairline naturally, choosing the right hair products will be very helpful.
First thing you need to keep in mind is that you should only consider natural or organic products. Artificial chemicals and compounds, unless specifically formulated for hair growth such as minoxidil or finasteride, are never good. Even minoxidil and finasteride can have side-effects.
It would be much safer and you’d be more likely to regrow your hairline if you only use hair care products without ingredients like alcohols, silicones, sulfates, parabens, phthalates, and artificial fragrances. This includes everything from shampoos and conditioners to hair serums and masks.
When choosing these hair care products, it is always better to pick combos because they’re meant to work together. For instance, it isn’t uncommon for a company to create a shampoo and conditioner combo where the shampoo counters excess DHT and the conditioner boosts hair growth.
In terms of selecting products, we suggest favoring those that are specifically developed for countering hair loss and boosting hair growth. Look for ingredients which have the same nutrients that we’ve suggested in previous sections.
Further, look for naturally-occurring DHT blockers such as zinc, saw palmetto, pumpkin seed oil, nettle root, and green tea. Also, you’ll find a few products with patented botanical blends such as Lipogaine. These tend to perform quite well.
You can also create your own shampoos, conditioners, and masks at home. While you can pick and choose from the countless recipes online, the basic premise for all will be the same.
They’ll use a carrier oil like castor oil, coconut oil, or argan oil, and mix essential oils like peppermint oil, rosemary oil, lavender oil, tea tree oil, cedarwood oil, and avocado oil in them. You can use any essential oil, but we recommend choosing based on your hair type rather than the scent.
