A girl's worst nightmare: Hair problems





I have been worrying about my hair lately. A lot. There was moments when I nearly cried after brushing through it. Why? Because I am bloody loosing my hair like crazy! Seriously, it's everywhere! My bed, my bedroom floor, my work desk it's full of my hair! It's terrifying. I have long hair, I've been looking after and growing them for so long for what? For them to fall out? Hell no!
I know you supposed to loose about 50 - 100 hair everyday, but mine is like 1000s of them. I have no idea what is causing the fall out, but I have decided to do something before it gets too late. 

I have been browsing on the internet what would be the best natural, home made remedy and the first thing I see - onion. Yes, you read it right. ONION mask. Don't get me wrong, I like cheese & onion Walkers crisps, or some onions in any kind of food. But on my hair, definitely not! And I will tell you why. I have read tons of great feedback about the onion mask, that it helps within a week or two, so I have decided to do it myself. I have mixed few ingredients such as: olive oil, coconut oil, onion juice, honey and egg and applied it to my hair. Kept it for few hours and washed it all off. Ok, my hair felt amazingly soft and all that jazz, but the smell of it... My hair stunk really bad. After washing it few times with shampoo and conditioner the smell was still there! I knew what to expect, but didn't expect that bad. Next day smell was still there, even after second wash I could still smell it. So I had to say no to the most recommended treatment and find an alternative. And I came across the castor oil. Good, old and very effective castor oil. Why I never thought about it at the first place? 
For those who don't know castor oil is great for skin problems, wrinkles and fine lines, acne, fade scars, stretch marks, hair growth , etc. It's kind of miracle in a bottle. I have used it before for my hair and I definitely noticed the difference. I bought pure castor oil from my local asian supermarket for just £1.89 and started applying it once or twice a week. I apply some castor oil on my eyelashes and eyebrows every night before I go to sleep, many girls raving about the results so will see if it helps for me too.






I know your inner health has a huge impact on your hair and skin condition, so I have bought some food supplements to speed up the process. I used to take Perfectil Triple Action about a year ago and it really improved the condition of my nails in a very short amount of time, but then I've lost my tablets somewhere when I was moving out so I completely forgot to repurchase it again. Hundreds of woman swears by Perfectil, so I really hope it will help to fix my hair problems. It's 3 for £10 in Asda and you get 3 months supplies, which is enough time to see if it works. And today, after a very long time, I paid a visit to my hair dresser. I had a good trim and she cut the damaged ends, although it was heartbreaking to watch, but I knew it was for the best. I will keep you, guys, updated if the castor oil works and if any of you knows something effective to stop hair fall PLEASE let me know in the comment box down below. 

Lots of love,

  2. It sounds like you're having a hard time with your hair, I've heard that stress can be a factor sometimes but hopefully things will improve for you. I can definitely understand why you couldn't use the onion mask, the smell would put me off too. I have been wanting to try castor oil for my brows for a while now so I look forward to seeing how you get on x

  4. Couple years ago I used to use waterproof mascara almost everyday and it damaged my lashes very badly. My solution was castor oil and I still swear by it now. Though I use it just for my eyelashes and I am not sure if it could help with hair as well..

    Anyway I agree with you 100 % that inner health is a number one factor when it comes to this kind of problems. If I were you I would do a blood test and check a thyroid (you never now). Plus I would try to reduce my stress levels. Easy to say but I could bet that it's related to it.

    Good luck!
