With a focus on new beginnings when it comes to growing healthy hair, the scalp should be the focus of much of your attention. It’s the beginning of any journey to growing healthy hair. Why?

The scalp is where your hair grows from. Simple.

But it’s deeper than that. Your hair actually begins growing beneath the scalp and it starts with stimulating that area so that blood flow is increased.

Stimulated Scalp = Increased Blood Flow = Stimulated Scalp

It’s a constant cycle which when attended to, will help with improving your level of hair growth.

Even if you aren’t seeking an increased level of hair growth, you still want your hair to keep growing.

The life cycle of a hair strand ranges from two to seven years depending on your genetic make up. Once that hair has reached its full life span, it will fall out and another will take its place. This begins the growth cycle all over again.

Therefore, you want each hair that grows on your hair to have the best breeding ground for hair growth possible.

    1. Hi, it really depends on the cause of the receding. It could be hormonal or it could be caused by how tight the hair is being pulled the styling. If the latter, then simply stop doing what you’re doing and be gentle with the hair, avoiding styles like braids that pull at the strands.

      Also, consider incorporating herbal hair treatments like Amla and Henna. Many herbs are know to help regrow the hair. You’ll find more info in this simple Indian Herbal Hair Care Guide:
