While a receding hair line and hair loss is not considered a serious medical concern by most doctors in most cases, it can be still be embarrassing and uncomfortable for many men and women that suffer from it. Medical treatments are available for hair loss, but there are also some natural home remedies that supporters claim can help you to stop hair loss and re-grow hair. However, these treatments are not supported by the FDA, so talk with your doctor before starting any new treatment, however harmless they may seem.

Castor Oil and Lemon Essential Oil

According to Julie Gabriel, author of "The Green Beauty Guide: Your Essential Resource to Organic and Natural Skin Care, Hair Care, Makeup, and Fragrances,” a mixture of castor oil and lemon essential oil can be applied to the scalp to help stop hair loss and re-grow hair. To make and use this mixture, combine 8 tbsp. castor oil and 1 tbsp. lemon essential oil in a small bottle or container and shake or stir to combine. Pour a small amount into your hands and massage the liquid onto the scalp for 2 minutes. Leave the mixture on for 10 to 15 minutes before rinsing with cool water and washing with a mild shampoo. This treatment can be repeated daily unless it bothers your scalp or skin. Unused portions of this mixture will keep in a dark, dry and cool place for 30 days.
