A natural recipe to increase hair growth and reduce hair loss.
Some years ago, on a poorly monitored medical diet, I began to lose my hair. Since I had a strict low-protein diet and an aversion to artificial and chemical remedies, I began to search out natural means to promote hair growth and stop my hair from falling out without consuming any protein. A woman I had been in email correspondence with about the issue told me about a recipe for hair growth that included flax seeds and rosemary. I tried out the recipe and after a few weeks, my hair loss decreased and I felt a lot of new hair growing in. I have been using the flax-rosemary recipe ever since. Months after I began to use this recipe on my long hair, there was a horizontal “line” visible across my hair halfway down my back at the point where my hair began to grow in very thick against the longer very thin hair that had remained after my hair loss. After a year, my hair was thicker than it had ever been in my life. It was interesting to note, also, that, while it was thicker, the hair strands were thinner and more numerous and my hair was therefore softer and lighter-weight than it was before.
I have shared this recipe with a few people, but the fact is, if you are not willing to incorporate this recipe into your bathing regimen and commit to it the same way you are committed to washing your hair, it will do nothing for you. You must make the gel regularly, whenever you run out of it, and then apply it to your scalp every other day or so. If you stop, your hair loss will eventually return to what it was before you began using the gel.
Recipe and Preparation
You will need:
- A metal, mesh strainer—the holes of the mesh should not be too big or too small, if in doubt, get one with larger holes
- A measuring tablespoon and cup
- A small pot, such as a sauce pan, with lid
- A mixing bowl and sturdy spoon
- Rosemary (dried from the supermarket, for example)
- Whole flax seeds (from the supermarket)
- make 2 cups of tea in the small pot, chamomile is a good option for light hair, but any kind of tea will do
- add 2 tablespoons of rosemary and 3 tablespoons of flax to the tea
- cover the pot with a lid and bring the tea mixture to a boil and remove from the heat (it may easily boil over)
- stir the tea mixture with a spoon and cover it again and let it sit covered for about 10 minutes (not less than 10, but not more than 15 minutes)
- get a mixing bowl and poor the tea mixture through the strainer and into the bowl
- with a sturdy spoon, grind the flax and rosemary against the mesh of the strainer while holding it over the bowl, this releases a foamy goo from the flax seeds which accumulates on the bottom of the strainer over the bowl, there should be a good amount of goo from the seeds [note that if you let the tea mixture sit for too little time, you will not get enough goo, but if you let the mixture sit for too long, the goo will be too watery, also note that too fine of a mesh will not allow enough goo through, large mesh will allow a lot of rosemary and flax bits through], it may take some time and a lot of grinding to get a good amount of goo out, but make the gel with whatever amount of goo you get, then throw the contents of the strainer into the garbage
- you now have the gel in the bowl, mix it up so that the flax goo is evenly distributed in the liquid and poor the gel into a bottle and refrigerate it
Note that the gel will start to smell bad after some time in the refrigerator, but you’re not eating it, so it’s not going to make you sick if it gets old, and the smell is mild and doesn’t linger.
