Hair loss is usually a result of stress, pregnancy, menopause or other conditions. Despite what you may think, it is completely normal for your body to react in that way to the stressful situations it undergoes. Stress, for example causes hormonal imbalance in your body which results in hair loss, a problem that is often the source of low self-esteem for many people.

People are trying to battle hair loss with expensive treatments and products which are sadly often ineffective. Instead of commercial products and treatments, you should try some natural remedies which can help you prevent hair loss such as guava leaves, which will stop the hair fall and stimulate new hair growth.

Guava leaves contain a high amount of vitamin B which is necessary for healthy and fast growing hair. Not only will they stimulate hair growth, they will also strengthen your hair follicles and roots as well.

Here’s how to prepare the remedy:

Pour a liter of water into a pot and add a handful of guava leaves, then boil the mixture and let it simmer for 20 minutes. In the end, remove it from the heat and allow the mixture to cool down. Massage your hair and scalp with it and leave it to work for a couple of hours before washing it off with water.

The remedy may be even more effective if you apply it on your hair before going to bed and leaving it overnight.Just make sure you cover your hair with a shower cap to avoid wetting and staining the pillows.
