Epsom Salt Hair Loss Remedy

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

Question:

Can putting Epsom salt in your hair prevent hair loss? What are the benefits of Epsom salt for hair growth?

Answer:

Epsom salt can give your hair a softer, healthier look and make it shine, in addition to the fact that it can help prevent split ends.

Regarding the connection between Epsom salt and hair loss – Treating your hair and scalp with Epsom oil can remove excess sebum, which in some cases can cause increased hair fall, so if this is the root cause of hair loss, Epsom salt can be beneficial.

For other cases, although some people report that they have experience more hair growth, there is no evidence that this is indeed the case.

Can I Color Hair with Coffee?

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

Question:

Can I color my hair with coffee? I heard that is can be used as an organic hair color and that gives the hair a shiny look.

Answer:

Yes, coffee can work as a natural hair dye, especially on bleached hair that absorbs the color faster.

The process of coloring hair with coffee is quite time consuming, as you need to really let it soak before you rinse your hair. One disadvantage of this is that your hair will probably have a strong smell of coffee for sometime after you dye your hair, but on the plus side, this hair dye doesn’t contain any chemicals and won’t damage your hair.
