One condition that causes hair thinning and baldness is insufficient blood flow to the scalp. When you don’t have enough blood circulating in your scalp, then your hair roots don’t get enough nutrients to support the life and strength of your hair in the follicle. In this article, you’re going to learn about some home remedies for hair loss that you can use to increase the blood circulation to your scalp. These can help keep the hair you have or to stop hair thinning naturally.
The hardest place to get good circulation is at the top of your scalp. It is the furthest point away from your heart. It is the area that is less stimulated. The sides of your head are stimulated as you sleep and move your head around the pillow. That is one reason why most people still have hair on the sides of their head while the top is completely bald. So how can you increase blood circulation to the top of your head naturally? Here are two ways to do it.
* Use herbal remedies to increase body and scalp blood circulation
* Use hot and cold hydrotherapy

At the end of your shower, run hot water over your head for 20 seconds, turn the hot water off and allow the cold water to run over your head for 20 seconds.
Do this hot-cold water technique three – four times and end with the cold water. This technique allow blood to move in and out of the lower layers of your scalp giving you a blood massage and providing more nutrients to your hair roots. As a side benefit, you are bringing in more blood to your brain giving you more brain power as long as use this technique.
Use herbs to improve you blood circulation to your scalp and use hot-cold water to blood massage your scalp. By doing this, you will find less hair loss and you may even start to see some hair growth.
