Other natural oils good for your hair are: coconut (virgin or refined,) jojoba, castor and emu.
Eating a balanced diet can help counterbalance hair loss. Getting plenty of sleep and feeling well-rested will also help. Limiting the stresses in your life can also play into hair loss, so figuring out what is stressing you out might help. These are all just simple, natural steps that can combat hair loss.
