Herbs for Baldness and Hair loss
Herbs for Baldness and Hair loss graphic

The average rate of hair growth for a healthy person is 0.30 mm a day; however, slower growth occurs in older people and in people with a serious illness. The hair on your head does no grow in a symmetrical pattern. About 80 percent of your hair follicles are growing at any one time, while the other 20 percent are resting. On average we lose 25-100 hairs each day.

We all lose a certain amount of hair every day, but excessive loss of hair could be a sign of illness. Temporary hair loss can be caused by hormone imbalances, depression, and stress or chemotherapy treatments.

Balding, also known as alopecia, is commonly a hereditary condition that affects some men. There are a series of different patterns in which men may experience hair loss. These include:

* Men often develop a receding hairline above the forehead though the hair in on top of the crown remains.
* Some men lose hair on the crown of their head, known as a 'bald spot.'
* Some men experience both a bald spot and a receding hair line.
* Other men develop general thinning all over the head, which may lead to complete baldness over time. 

Herbs for Hair Loss
Herbal remedies can benefit hair loss in a number of ways:

* By stimulating the circulation
* By stimulating hair growth
* By disinfecting the scalp 

Horsetail
Horsetail is a good source of silica. Silica keeps your hair strong and shiny looking.

Stinging Nettle
Studies show that loss of hair in both women and men is connected to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) levels. Though there have currently been any studies conducted on the effects of nettle on hair loss, some research points to the fact that nettle root.

Dong Quai
Dong Quai contains substances known as phytoestrogens. Studies have shown that these substances can stabilize and sometimes even reverse the effects of genetic hair loss.

Saw Palmetto
Saw palmetto has also been linked to the reduction of DHT around the root and follicle of the hair.

Pygeum
Pygeum bark is derived from an African evergreen it inhibits the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase- which reduces DHT-, and is used widely throughout Europe to treat male pattern baldness.

You can apply herbal tinctures such as nettle, horsetail, rosemary and birch directly to your scalp because they are mild and will not harm your skin. Massaging these herbs regularly into your hair will not only prevent dandruff, they will also help you to keep your hair clean, prevent scalp irritation and stimulate healthy hair growth.

Clinical studies have also suggested that your diet plays a significant role in hair loss. Consuming a lot of junk food and not getting the required daily amount of vitamins and minerals may stunt the growth of your hair, leave your hair in a dry and brittle condition and could even lead to hair thinning.

Topically some of those things may help, yes.

is horsetail bad?

I’ve been using horsetail, MSM, hairmax and fish oil for over a year and so believe they are all helping things.
I may not be getting regrowth, but I believe that the supplements are thickening my existing hair (and HT hair) and helping to maintain what I have.

I know I’m going to get flamed for this but I also use the laserbrush 3x a week and shampoo only once or twice a week. I use conditioner everyday, no hairdryer, no brushing. I only a wide tooth comb after a shower. My hair got very brittle from shampooing everyday.

I did this for 35 years until the woman who cuts my hair told me I was NUTS for shampooing everyday and she sells lots of shampoo (all with SLS). She was unaware of SLSs and has been cuting hair for over 25 years.

No, I don’t think shampoo CAUSES baldness but I do think shampooing everyday is a mistake most men make. Few women I talk to shampoo everyday, many condition everyday though.

That’s my routine.
Peace.

I agree the vitamins may not cause regrowth but they help in overall hair health and thickness and they in my case delayed MPB and I would never stop taking them
