Herbal Hair Loss Remedies

All people, men and women, who had to face and learn how to fight hair loss tend to use various herbal solutions and herbal remedies for bringing their hair back.

In particular, natural and herbal hair loss remedies are used in order to improve blood circulation in the scalp, providing the hair follicles with more nutrients and making the hair stronger. That is why one of the most effective ways to slow down hairloss is using herbal medicines to stimulate blood flow to the top of the head.

Herbal hair loss remedies can be used internally or externally.  Some internal herbal hairloss remedies include:

Gingko biloba – this herb improves blood circulation to the brain and skin, thus delivering more nutrients to the hair follicles and promoting the regrowth of hair.
Green tea – the natural chemicals called catechins in green tea can help to inhibit an enzyme that converts testosterone into DHT.  DHT leads to male pattern baldness.
He Shou Wu – is also known as Fo-Ti and is a Chinese herb that is traditionally used to combat hair-loss and graying.
Pygeum – works in a similar way to green tea.
Saw palmetto – is used for males suffering male pattern baldness as it slows hair loss and reduces the uptake of DHT into the hair follicles.
Stinging Nettle – is thought to block the conversion of testosterone into the more harmful DHT.

For external use, the following herbal hair-loss remedies may be used:

Aloe vera – activates the production of nitric oxide and an enzyme called superoxide dismutane, two substances that may work together to stimulate hair regrowth.

Eclipta Alba – A well-known Ayurvedic herb considered to be the best natural remedy for the hair loss and premature greying of the hair.
Capsicum – is a skin irritant that draws blood and nutrients to the scalp and it also encourages histamines to be released, which stimulates cell division and hair regrowth.
– Is one of the few oils that actually contain protein easily absorbable into the hair strands, and thus, is one of the few oils that strengthen the hair follicle.
Grape seed extract – A powerful antioxidant to protect hair follicles from free radical damage

Onion – is high in sulfur, which is thought to be a hair healing mineral.
Safflower oil – dilates the blood vessels and allows the blood to deliver more nutrients to the hair follicles.
