We’ve all been berated by our mothers for not drinking juices in our childhood. And, even though the sight of green vegetables repulsed us, and still continue to do so, we certainly can’t ignore the health benefits of drinking vegetable juices.
Thanks to this age-old mother’s advice, you can now prevent the most nasty health problem in men – hair loss. Here’s a list of 5 best juices that will aid you in your battle of fighting against hair loss.
1) Carrot Juice
Turns out carrots are not just for Bugs Bunny, it is an excellent nutritional health drink, which is rich in beta-carotene that gives your hair a beautiful shine and colour, restoring and strengthening the structure of hair follicles. It is also a good source of vitamin C, which helps in increasing blood flow to the scalp thereby aiding in hair growth. All you need to do is start your day with a glass of carrot juice – it’s healthy and will appeal to your taste buds as well.
2) Onion Juice
This is a proven fact that onion juice is known to give positive results in treating hair fall problems as it works as a stimulant in the growth of hair by increasing the blood circulation in the scalp. Apart from this, onion juice is also known for its antiseptic properties that keep the scalp clean. You can apply onion juice on your scalp, directly. Though very strong and pungent in odour, onions can also be used alongside rosewater on your scalp, which has to be later washed off after about an hour with a mild shampoo.
3) Garlic Juice
The idea of using garlic juice for hair loss is almost as old as the existence of the world. Garlic, just like onion, is a natural hair stimulant that provides nourishment to the hair follicles and increases the blood circulation in scalp. Therefore, applying fresh garlic juice topically on your scalp is definitely one of the best natural solutions for effective hair care and hair re-growth, along with a healthy balanced diet, consuming lots of leafy green vegetables and beans, as well as using only high quality hair care product.
4) Coriander Juice
Coriander, also known as cilantro, is another juice that is said to boost hair growth and fight against hair fall. So, whether you include it as a part of your coriander-spinach-lettuce drink or banana-honey-biotin drink, it will bring no change in taste but add in health. You can also make a paste with freshly chopped coriander leaves and water, from which the juice has to be filtered and applied to the scalp for about an hour, before shampooing it off. Either way, the results will be in your favour!
5) Cucumber Juice
Another juice to drink for hair loss is the cucumber juice. Known to promote strong healthy hair, cucumber juice can help prevent hair loss by helping the body fight its common causes. The other benefits of cucumber juice are weight loss or prevention of weight gain, a stronger heart, stronger blood vessels, and better circulation; benefits which can be directly related to the juice being able to prevent hair loss. Ideally, cucumber juice should be consumed in the morning.
Despite all the great effects of juice, one should not to overdo it. One or two glasses of fresh fruit juice each day is all the body needs to stay healthy and prevent hair loss problems. The rest of a person’s liquid intake should be water.
