Focus on thyroid health using natural remedies
Give your thyroids a boost. Radiation is known to cause detrimental effects to your thyroid glands, which is why you need to nourish them back to health using seaweeds like kelp, Irish moss and bladderwrack, which are packed with natural iodine.
You can place this inside of your smoothies, using a nut milk like hemp, hazelnut, coconut or walnut. Use natural sugars, such as coconut or 100%pure maple.
Stay away from the hair salon
There’s no need to waste time or money going to a beautician, especially if he or she is going to talk you into using chemical products or synthetic vitamins* for your hair growth. You can do it all on your own naturally for a fraction of the price and 10x the health benefits.
Massage your scalp nightly with nature’s oils
And I’m not talking your typical coconut and olive oils. You should include the likes of moringa seed oil, which has proven to help others grow their hair.
Folks who suffered from balding caused by heredity and old age have had success with not only regrowing their hair, but transforming it from gray to its original color using moringa seed oil in particular.
You can buy moringa oil* online and use that to massage your scalp each night. You can then wash it out in the morning. This is all you will need until your hair grows longer. You don’t want to weigh down your hair or clog your pores with a bunch of different oils and butters.
Use herbal hair cleansers and conditioners
To help stimulate your hair growth, you should use herbs and essential oils* like lavender and rosemary*. Nourishing your hair and scalp is important during this time.
There’s nothing like using plants to provide minerals and vitamins* for your hair. Since you are staying away from chemical hair products, you’re going to need to buy those made with amla, shikakai*, aritha and brahmi, or make it yourself. This is a cleanser and conditioner that will help to grow and thicken your hair.
Tie up your hair in a satin or silk scarf* at night
This will help to prevent tugging and rubbing, which can make it harder to retain your hair. I think this is a better option than using a satin or silk pillow case, since your hair is still free to be tugged at when you move about throughout the night.
With these 8 tips, not only will you be restoring your hair, but your health as well. This is very important for cancer patients who have to suffer from depletion after their therapies.
Make sure to eat a nutritious organic diet that is low in animal products and sugar (cancer loves sugar!). An alkaline diet would be ideal to speed up your progress.
Did you or someone you know go through chemo? How is hair loss being dealt with?

Thank you!!!! I feel so dismissed by most hair blogs, books & the hair community in general. No one seems to believe we too can have healthy hair. I’m dealing with major hair damage & breakage from Sickle Cell so I will definitely be using these tips. Thank you for addressing an ignored population! #Sick&StillSexy
