Rice Water + Aloe Vera
Posted by Bnatural415 (Michigan ) on 05/25/2019

Hello all!

I was introduced to the rice water hair remedy about 2 years ago and I've seen AMAZING RESULTS since using it. It is full of all of the nutrients that helps the hair grow longer, thicker and also helps if you have thinning/breaking hair, bald spots, alopecia, hereditary hair loss. IT WORKS!

My hair loss remedy is using rice water and aloe vera gel from the plant.

Rice water recipe:

One cup of long grain organic rice in a bowl (white/brown/jasmin) your preference. Please rinse rice before preparation to rid any impurities.

Add 2 cups of distilled or alkaline water to the rice.

Cover the bowl with saran wrap and let ferment for 24 to 48 hours in the refrigerator. Make sure you refrigerate the rice water. If you leave it out it has a putrid smell.

Before preparing to wash your hair take the rice water out of the refrigerator, strain into a clean bowl. Your water will appear cloudy,milky looking. Those are the nutrients from the rice.

Pour water into a spray bottle. After shampooing and conditioning hair, saturate the scalp and hair with rice water concentrating on the troubled areas the most.

Place a shower cap and leave in your hair from 30 mins to 2 hours. (I prefer 2 hours). Once time has elapsed, rinse hair with cool water.

I get one stalk (large) from my aloe vera plant, cut it open and you can either scrape the gel out of the plant or rub the plant throughout the scalp and leave in.

These 2 natural remedies together has given me amazing results.

FYI: I do practice a healthy diet eating lots of dark green leafy veggies (kale, spinach, cilantro, basil) and I drink lots of water. I have omitted refined sugar from my diet and red meats. This alone has also helped in my hair growth journey.

I hope this helps anyone who's experiencing these hair troubles.

Diatomaceous Earth
Posted by Jenna (Salem, Or) on 08/04/2015

Food grade diatomaceous earth for hair loss! Start with a tsp and mix into smoothies, oatmeal, mashed potatoes or even water, juice or tea/coffee. Work your way up to a TBSP. LOTS of vitamins/minerals and a great detoxer.

I'm in my fifties now but experienced major hair loss from my late 20's to my early forties. After a lot of research (supplements, OTC treatments, doctors, naturopaths, articles) I came to realize that hair fall for most men and women comes from the after affects of Candida and leaky gut syndrome. Sugar of all types (even fruits) accelerates it. The candida/leaky gut comes from too many antibiotics and not enough Probiotics to clean up the mess that they leave and/or simply eating very poorly and causing bacteria proliferation in different pockets in the gut over a period of years.

Try this if you're losing hair in the shower-

FAST for 24 -48 hours on water or broth. NO SUGAR. If your hairfall diminishes significantly or completely then your answer is there.

Sulfur-Rich Food
Posted by Nancy (Houston, Tx) on 10/17/2012

I had severe dandruff for about 5 years, saw a dermatologist, use tar shampoos, etc. One day I read severe dandruff was a sign of sulfur deficiency, and several good sources of sulfur listed was onions and garlic. Just so happened, I had followed a way of eating for years that excluded onions and garlic.

I didn't really believe it applied to me, I thought surely I consumed enough other sulfur foods to not have a deficiency. I immediately prepared a salad with raw onions, and within a day my dandruff was completely gone. That was several years ago, I have continued eating foods with onions regularly and it still works for me. The connection was amazing, and I wouldn't have believed it had I not seen it myself.

Edgar Cayce's Hair Loss Remedies
Posted by Mary (Rural, Va) on 01/28/2012

I can't speak to Edgar Cayce specifically, but this remedy did peak my interest. I have been losing hair by the handful since I can remember, at least all of my adult life, and I am 53. It suddenly stopped recently. I have been trying to figure out what I have been doing differently that has made the difference. I have been taking multiple supplements for years, added some, stopped some, but I couldn't think of anything that I had started just prior to my windfall (or should I say lack of hairfall).

But one thing I did consider, I have been eating shrimp maybe a couple of times a week for about the past year. Then I saw the post about Edgar Cayce's remedy. We may be onto something here. I have not tried the coffee, so I cannot speak to that. I had also been supplementing with kelp, and doing occasional iodine painting. But maybe the iodine in the natural form is the key.

Accutane Related
Posted by Nickie (London Uk) on 11/14/2014

I've recetly started taking Diatomaceous Earth for my joints but read up on it first and was surprised at how many other things it clears up; parasites, hair, nails, blood pressure AND ACNE. Plus more.

I hope Nickodactyl reads this 'cos I think he's getting carried away with the science. Remember Occams Razor; simpler is best. You've been tackling the symptoms rather than the cause which is what most doctors do. Spots on the face, or anywhere, is the body telling us to take care of it. We've all got toxins and parasites and imbalances so chucking a pharmacoepia of supplements at it ain't going to fix it or lengthen your telomeres unless you clean it up first.

And you should NEVER screw around with hormones!!!! I've had thyroid problems and you don't want that, I can assure you. I never took contraceptive pills but there are probably thousands/millions of women out there who are experiencing a myriad problems because they did. They were the easy option, of course, and I guess you thought, when you used Accutane, that would be too. We are all prone to the temptation of the quick fix or instant gratification, particularly at eighteen. Been ther - done that. My Gran used to say - Lazy people take the most pains. - and it's true.

If you are still reading, first do a cleanse, then eat what is most nourishing with good protein for the hair and for vitamins and minerals do juicing. And try the diatomacious earth; tasteless, cheap and easy.


PS. When your hair grows back, please wear it long or longish. Hair does so much for a guy. Michael Bolton is rubbish now.


Coconut Oil
Posted by Tasha (Raleigh, Nc) on 09/07/2010

I have had some success with using Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) topically for hair fall. I was diagnosed with diffused Alopecia areata long ago when my hair loss started at around age 19. My hair loss has slowly progressed for nearly a decade. I usually have increased hair fall in the summer and my scalp is ALWAYS tender. So much so that adding a barette or pulling into a ponytail causes my scalp to hurt so bad it causes headaches. I've tried some EC recommended remedies during this approx 2 month bout of intense shedding.

ACV, BSM, Idoral have not helped. The one thing that has reduced my shedding is applying coconut oil topically. I saturated my scalp, let sit for a couple hours and then attempeted to wash it out. This stuff is not going to wash away easily as my daily rinsing with white vinegar(make hair gorgeous! ) has yet to displace the oil completely. The next day my shedding was GREATLY reduced and is still reduced 3 days later. The downside for me is that I DONT care for my hair texture or the appearance of my hair(greasy) after the VCO application. My scalp sensitivity is also up (sebum cause by the oil?). BUT for those without my AA issues, I recommend highly trying VCO externally for hair shedding.

Edgar Cayce's Hair Loss Remedies

Dear Sue,

Castor Oil has been used by many to help with hair growth. I try to do this once a month and it seems to have made a difference for me, though it has taken some time to be noticeable.

About once a month, I put castor oil (cold pressed or expeller pressed, hexane free) on my scalp. I use a small squeeze bottle and apply the oil to just my scalp and massage it into my scalp. I wrap my head in a towel and leave it over night. In the morning, I wash my hair twice.

Some use Black Castor Oil the same way.

Coconut Oil
Posted by Chris (Army base, USA) on 01/31/2009

Regarding organic virgin cold pressed coconut oil, I internally take 3 tsp daily, as well as oil pull with it, and for skin, it is a great makeup remover as well as facial cleanser and moisturizer. For hair, once a month; I saturate my hair (dry hair) with the oil, then wrap in saran wrap and cover with a warm towel for no less than 2hrs.; then wash normally. It is IMO, one of the better oils to use externally, since it absorbs so quickly, and is less damaging than all those nasty chemicals.

Onion Juice
Posted by Helene (Manila, Philippines) on 03/25/2008

Onion juice with calamansi juice stops my hairfall in just 2 weeks time.

I have been experiencing hair fall since I was 14 , now Im 36 years old and my hair is really thin. But small hair continue to grow but rate of hairfall is faster than growth. So I came accross in the internet use of onion juice.So I extract fresh red onion using osterizer, then add 1 piece of calamansi juice. (or 1/2 of lime). I apply this every night. using a small pipette, then massage my scalp daily. The 3X a week I apply olive oil with rosemary leaves overnight, after applying onion juice. i plan to do this for a year. My hair stops falling and small hair continue to grow which are also strong and thick.

Vitamin C, Apple Cider Vinegar
Posted by Danny (Los Angeles) on 02/17/2007

use apple cider to wash your hair and put lavender and tea tree oil take vitamin c as sodium ascorbate. These 3 things will help in hair re growth and complete hair loss. thanks

Edgar Cayce's Remedies for Hair Loss
Posted by Jackie (Grand Rapids, Minnesota) on 01/02/2012

This hair regime seems to be working. I think I will forever stick with it since it doesn't take that much time and I have the routine down. My hair after a month is no longer dry, my hair roots no longer ache on top of my head. I'm able to wear a short bob haircut with bangs without using heat appliances, curlers or styling products. It has a little volume compared to the starting point where it layed limp and lifeless flat to the scalp.

I use the cayce crude oil every 10 days followed by the cayce rinse and shampoo, and every other day in between the crude oil treatment, I apply jamaican black castor oil to the scalp by pouring a little oil at a time in a dish and dipping the fingers in and rub into the scalp, leave on overnight and shampoo with cayce shampoo the next day. Massage the scalp at least once a day. After shampooing and the hair still wet, dip fingertips in white vaseline and rub on any scalp areas that show ( on myself it's along the part on top and cowlick on crown. ) Use just a little, it won't make the hair greasy. I stopped any artificial sweeteners, use a toaster oven instead of microwave, use only cast iron or stainless steel pans, no nonstick, use coconut oil for cooking. I take quite a few supplements, andrew lessmans hair, skin and nails, andrew lessmans evening primrose oil, a. L's omega fish oil, and recently added biosil. And a. L.'s complete multivitamin. The hairline feels fuzzy, the hair has a little lift so it looks thicker, all in all a big improvement in a month.

Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate
Posted by Monica (San Francisco) on 07/08/2018

I'm happy to let u know that after 3 weeks of using gelatin collagen hydrolysate, my hair fall has greatly diminished!!!

I still can't believe no one is talking about this!!!

I have been taking 5000 mcg of biotin for about 2 years. Finally baby hairs are appearing where significant hair loss has been. They are about 2" long and stick straight up and get frizzy when there is humidity.

I have alopecia and even though I haven't found a way to stop it I have found something to help with the tender scalp. I found msm in lotion form and put it in with my shampoo and wash my hair it doesn't change the texture at all but helps with the tenderness. Try it, t I think you will love the relief you get from just one use. You can also just put the lotion on your scalp by itself and feel the relief but it does leave your hair greasy of done like that I suggest putting it in your shampoo.

Do also look into the benefits of Organic Sulfur ( msm crystals ) for hair problems. Good luck.

Coconut Oil
Posted by Deb (Sahuarita, Az) on 01/26/2013

I just recently went through this. The loss was all over my scalp, not just in one area. It stopped once I started drinking Chai tea using coconut milk. I was also taking coconut oil internally as well (1-3 Tbs. A day). I now have little two inch growths all over my head, so it wasn't just breakage. When I discussed this with my hairdresser, she told me that stress will do this, and that it takes three months for it to happen after a stressful event. I did have something very stressful happen three months before I started losing my hair. It could also be the result of hormone imbalance, or a shedding cycle.

Multiple Remedies
Posted by Gloria (Gaithersburg, Md) on 10/24/2012

I suffered sudden hair loss about two years ago; hair was falling out of my head, it didn't seem to be held in there tightly. It would come out in the shower and also during the day. I didn't know the reason, but I figured it was stress, since I'd experienced a very stressful emotional crisis (involving harm to a loved one and worries about her) about 6 months previously, and I had heard that it can take 6 months for hair loss to occur following stress, OR the reverse; that it could take 6 months following "healing" to see results and hair restoration.

Unfortunately in my case, one crisis led to another, and I went through a period of about 15 months of a rollercoaster of stress. I had had stresses before in my life, but never had I lost hair over them.

I also want to add that I am currently 50 years old, female, caucasion, have not yet gone through menopause, have always had a very thick head of healthy, coarse/wavy hair. During this episode, I lost about 1/3 of my former volume. I have been alarmed to see a lot more of my scalp along my "part. " I think it is unattractive. It has made me sad.

But my dad is bald, and I'd always "heard" that as women age, we might inherit some of the hair loss from our father's side (who knows). I hoped not! But I thought my hair loss, so sudden, might be from stress, rather than genetics. It occurred mainly on the top/front of my head (which is where my dad's is).

I am writing to let all of you know that I have tried many things and made many changes in order to hope to help my hair loss. I do think that some of them have worked, but I don't know which ones. The hair "falling" slowed down and then stopped. I am not sure, though, if I am experiencing significant regrowth or restoration, though I think so.

Here are the things I have done: I went "no-poo" -- in other words, I stopped using ALL commercial shampoos, even organic ones. I went through an adjustment period, but now my hair is much healthier. I clean it with rinsing with water most days, and baking soda or borax and ACV about once a week. My hair is long. I do not brush my hair except in the evening before bed. I don't use a hair dryer on it. I let it dry in the air. I detangle it and separate the waves with my fingers. I do not use any commercial products, conditioners, gels, etc. on my hair. For gel, I use aloe. For conditioner, I use coconut oil (a little goes a long way). For scent, I use a few drops of essential oil in a water rinse. My hair is soft and looks healthy.

I also worked hard to clean up my diet. I eat more vegetables and fruits and stay away from processed foods. I cook most of my meals from scratch (at home). I use organic foods as much as possible.

I started sunbathing (I am fair, so I do this only for about 10-20 minutes at a time).

I also supplement with biotin, vitamin D, B-complex, vitamin E. About 4 days a week.

I have worked on de-stressing using Bach Flower remedies and other energy therapies including massage and self reflexology.

I have worked very hard to help stop hair loss and hopefully restore my hair... So far, I think something is working. I am happy with my hair, though it is not (yet?) as thick as it used to be. It no longer falls out, and it feels "tight" in my scalp. It doesn't break off, either. I hope some of this can give some of you who are suffering with this problem, some helpful ideas to try.

I have been losing hair for the last several years and I am slowly balding. I started taking a coconut oil supplement lately and hope it will help. I stopped using iodized salt several years ago too. Could doing this create an iodine deficiency? Also, I use to eat shrimp quite often, but have eaten very little in the last couple of years.

Iodine, Selenium
Posted by Bodulica (Barrie, Ontario, Canada) on 10/31/2011

For all of you losing hair: maybe is your thyroid. In that case you need iodine and selenium supplements. Be careful with selenium dosage. Some sources are saying that over 200 mcg is already poisonous, some say 400 mcg is still allowed...
