Red Wine Comes to the Rescue Again

Hair loss happens to the best of us, and not just when we get older. Hair loss is something that many people – both men and women – suffer from and is one of the hardest things to find a solution for.

There are things that you can do on a regular basis to help fight hair loss and actually foster hair growth, helping to give you the healthy, beautiful hair you’ve always wanted. In fact, the best way to maintain the health of your hair is to provide regular, consistent, and decent care for your hair so that it’s always healthy and grows great.

Taking proper care of your health isn’t about doing special treatments, but about maintaining consistent care of your hair. This includes treating your hair to the attention it needs, as well as living a balanced lifestyle that offers the foundation for solid hair growth.

How Red Wine Helps Against Hair Loss

In many cases, we can do daily things to make sure that we take proper care of our hair, like use natural shampoos and conditioners that offer the nutrients we need without chemicals that damage our hair over time.

Luckily for many of us out there that suffer from hair loss – including me – there is a great treatment option that will motivate many of you to take proper care of your hair: red wine.

Drinking Red Wine

Let’s start with the best solution, drinking wine.

Drinking about a half a glass of red wine a day can help with the circulation of your blood, making sure your scalp gets proper circulation. This makes sure that your head is healthy and designed to offer the best growth to your hair.

More than that, the increased circulation strengthens the blood vessels and reduces dandruff, flakiness, and an itchy scalp. Overall, drinking half a glass of wine a day will help boost your health.

Red Wine Rinse

I don’t think you’re able to plan for the week ahead by drinking a bottle or two on the weekend though; it should be a steady glass per day to make sure that your hair care is regular and consistent.

By helping your skin – especially with blood circulation – red wine is able to help with your hair loss.

Red Wine Rinse

Now, this may sound unorthodox, so have a glass of wine first… I’ll wait.

Ready? Alright.

Red Wine in Hair

Rinsing your hair in red wine can help give you some benefits as well. This is because red wine contains a range of natural ingredients, such as resveratrol, that help prevent hair loss. Resveratrol stops the inflammation and death of cells so that they are able to grow full and healthy.

In general, red wine also has some healthy nutrients similar to natural oils that your hair will be able to absorb. After washing your hair with shampoo and conditioner, rinse with red wine.

Do this a few times a week to make sure you get results that will last over time. By follow a regimen with this system, you’ll slowly ensure that your hair gets shiny, silky, and beautiful; just as you wanted it.

Better UV Protection

Depending on how frequently you use red wine to treat your hair using a rinse, it will offer some protection against ultraviolet (UV) rays of light from the sun. This will help keep your hair beautiful, even when it’s under the stress and strain of the sun.

Natural Ingredients

Red Wine Fights Dandruff

No one likes dandruff and flakes in their hair. Red wine helps fight this issue, giving you a natural alternative to the shampoos that have chemicals in them that damage your hair over time. Instead, drinking a glass of wine gives your head better blood circulation, so that your scalp will get proper flow, fighting dandruff at the source.

How To Treat Hair with Red Wine

Red wine can be a great solution to your hair loss problems, helping to foster better growth and ensure the health of your scalp. It’s very important that you don’t get any in your eyes when using it on your scalp and hair, as it can hurt and sting your eyes.

It’s also a good idea to dilute red wine with some water before applying it, as the solution can be strong. This also makes it safer to apply.

Red Wine Results

Now, if you’re like me and you think that using red wine for anything but drinking is a shame, then at least use this as an excuse to continue drinking your red wine on a regular basis.

However, if you’re serious about your hair loss and want to combat it, consider using it on your head as well, applying it relatively regularly by massaging it into your scalp.

Either way, red wine should help give you health benefits and allow you to stop the negative and serious effects of your hair loss.
