For men, especially as you naturally age, you can expect physiological changes that are not always desirable. Many times hair loss is inherited, but there is still much that can be done to stop, and maybe even reverse, a receding hairline. There are other contributing causes for hair loss, such as mental stress, lack of a balanced diet, chemical hair treatments, illnesses, and harsh medicines. Any one of these can cause more than normal hair loss. By avoiding or treating these causes for thinning, balding hair, you have made a huge step already toward remedying and reversing hair loss.

    Massage your scalp with lavender essential oil three times per week.
    According to a study reported in Organic Facts health publication, medical studies have verified that lavender essential oil massaged into the scalp three times a week was effective in growing new hair for male patients. Here is a lavender oil home remedy recipe that has proven effective in clinical studies. In a small container:

    4. Add 2 drops of thyme oil and 2 drops of cedar wood.
    5. Test this mixture on a tiny spot of your scalp to ensure you are not allergic.

    Eat the right foods.
     
    1. Have fish in your diet. With its omega-3, vitamin D and other minerals, this protein food aids prevention of hair loss. This was discovered to help chemotherapy patients keep their hair during chemotherapy. Eating fish benefits you in many other ways as well, such as keeping your heart healthy.
    2. Eat foods rich in iron. Mollusks, meat, and poultry are loaded with iron. If you are a vegetarian, nuts, eggs, beans and lentils, squash, pumpkin seeds, and whole grains will provide plenty of iron. Nuts provide zinc and selenium, as does fish.

    One important home remedy to prevent a receding hairline, and even reverse it is to find ways to relieve stress.
    A receding hairline can be caused by two kinds of stress:  
    1. Alopecia areata, in which your white blood cells are overworking due to stress, and block red blood cells from flowing into your hair follicles. This causes you to lose hair.
    2. Telogen, in which hair loss is caused from extreme stress. Your hair will not only fall out, but new hair growth will stop.
    3. Try some form of physical activity that you enjoy, and make it a regular part of your daily life. Try meditation or yoga, also. Attend workshops to learn how to manage the everyday stress.

Questions and Answers

Do you add all the tea tree oil to the castor oil for reversing a receding hairline?

Or is there a ratio to follow?

No, you don't have to add all the oil. The oils have to be added in proportion to each other. The proportion is 5:1 i.e. you add 5 parts of tea tree oil for 1 part of castor oil.

What can I use to reverse alopecia?

I'm a woman, and I suffer from alopecia. My hairline is gone completely. It's embarrassing. I need something that will reverse this and allow new hair growth

Alopecia can be embarrassing equally for men and women, but the reverse solution in this case is not a folk or natural remedy. There are several possible types of hair loss in the described case: alopecia areata, when autoimmune system attacks hair follicles, anagen effluvium, caused by chemotherapy, telogen effluvium, and androgenetic alopecia, which is hormonal. When telogen effluvium is diagnosed by a trichologist (whom you should see as soon as possible), the reverse phase can actually occur naturally after several months or even years pass, which has not been studied well to understand the cause of its occurrence. Anagen effluvium may be reversed once the patient is no longer exposed to the therapy. Other types of alopecia require a visit to a doctor (therapist, trichologist, dermatologist, endocrinologist, gynecologist) and will require several tests for hormones.

Is there an easier way to do it than that?

I want to do it fast and simple. I have tried: Nothing yet. I think it was caused by: I'm only 16, and I already have one

Losing hair at 16 is not too uncommon. The fast but not simple method is hair transplant, which is not recommended for younger people, or other cosmetic methods (lace wigs, hairstyles, or special sprays). Unfortunately, people have been battling alopecia for thousands of years to no avail. However, if there is a specific medical condition that can be opportunely discovered by a therapist, psychotherapist, dermatologist, trichologist, or endocrinologist, then the chances of gaining some or all hair back greatly increase. The cure will be a long and demanding process, not fast or simple. Other methods are described in the article above.
