Our hair is made up of a protein known as keratin that is produced in the hair follicles. As the follicles produce new hair cells, old ones are pushed out of the surface of the skin.
Don’t panic if you find a few stray hairs on your hairbrush from time to time. Adults lose an average of 100 hair strands a day.
While hair loss is a sign of aging, a busy lifestyle and chemical hair products can contribute to this as well. The best way to deal with hair problems is naturally so that there are no side effects.
The best part of natural hair treatments is that most, if not all, of the ingredients, can be found in your home. Not only are they convenient to make, but these ingredients won’t have harsh chemicals that will damage your hair in the long run.
For long lasting results, check out these 6 tips for natural hair growth:

If you don’t have onions, potato juice will do just as well. Repeat the same steps above with a potato.
