Our hair tends to lose color naturally as a part of the ageing process. The graying of hair is unfortunately something that cannot be avoided once we begin to age. Thus the only solution would be to wear you hair gracefully or to go in for hair colors, but those too may cause additional damage to your hair. As far as the texture of your hair is concerned, there are several home remedies that can help in improving the same. Mix together an equal amount of almond oil and castor oil. Now warm this mixture for a minute on a medium fire. Massage the mixture of the warm oils into your scalp, for 10-15 minutes and let the application stay for an additional half hour. Thereafter, rinse your hair thoroughly with a mild shampoo and lukewarm water. This treatment should be performed twice a week; it will help in promoting hair growth while also strengthening your hair.

Coconut oil is also considered to be highly effective for hair fall and thin hair. Massage a tablespoon of this warm oil into your scalp for a few minutes, at bedtime. Then wrap your head with a warm towel and let the oil stay overnight. The next morning rinse it out with lukewarm water. This will stimulate blood circulation in your scalp, while also moisturizing your hair. Aloe vera gel can also be used as a treatment for hair fall. Apply some aloe vera gel on your scalp as well as your hair and let the application stay for approximately half an hour. Rinse the gel off after the stipulated time frame, with some cold water. As an alternative you could also use coconut milk in a similar manner.

A mixture made from sage tea and apple cider vinegar can also be used to rinse the hair; this will help in promoting growth. Make a thick paste by combining a teaspoon of cinnamon powder, honey and some warm olive oil. This should then be applied onto the scalp. Rinse the application off after about 15-20 minutes. Grind equal quantities of black pepper seeds and lime seeds, into a thin powder. The mixture of the powdered seeds should then be mixed with some water in order to make a thick paste. Apply this paste on your scalp and wash it off after 15-20 minutes. This remedy if performed every alternate day will also help in preventing hair fall.
