Do you have hair problems? Is your hair becoming thinner than it normally was? Is your hair color prematurely gray? Are you unusually bald or gradually losing your hair? Do the other hair loss treatments not work for you? If your answer to any of these questions is a “yes”, then you might want to go with the natural way of treating your bad hair condition. The natural way in this article actually refers to the use of herbs in treating hair loss problems.
Hair Loss Herbs Generally Work By:
1. Blocking The Conversion Of Testosterone Into Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) – The latter is a hormone that is known to weaken the follicles of the hair. When the levels of DHT in the hair scalp are lessened, the abnormal cycle of baldness or hair loss is corrected. Hence, re-growth of new hair is resumed to its normal pattern.
2. Eliminating Clogged Follicles Of The Hair – This elimination is made possible by dissolving solidified scalp sebum or oil, shampoo residues, and the dead skin cells that are major contributors to premature thinning or losing of hair. Scalp oil and dead skin cells make a suitable habitat for bacteria that destroy the scalp and roots of the hair. When the hair follicles are free from clogs, the dormant hair follicles can start reproducing healthy hair.
3. Increasing The Flow Blood To The Hair Scalp And Roots – Sufficient blood flow stimulates, as well as strengthens the roots for the growth of new healthy hair.
4. Stimulating And Nourishing The Follicles Of The Hair – Herbal products saturate the hair follicles with enough nutrition necessary for the promotion of hair growth. They also restore moisture balance on the scalp and hair and further protect the hair from any untoward damages.
Chinese and Thai natural herbs are combined to promote healthy and quick hair growth. Such may be used as the main ingredients in herbal organic shampoos and conditioners, and other herbal extracts.
1. Saw Palmetto – It is sometimes referred to as Serenoa repens, a little creeping palm that contains phytosterols and free fatty acids. This prevents testosterone to be converted to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) thus inhibiting the ability of DHT to bind to the sites of cellular receptors. In this case, DHT is rapidly broken down and excreted, inhibiting the 5-alpha reductase enzyme, which is a contributor to androgenetic alopecia.
2. Stinging nettle – Also called Urtica diocia. It works in the same way like the previously mentioned Saw Palmetto by indirectly blocking the hair loss causing enzyme, which is 5-alpha reductase.
3. Butterfly Pea – Also known as the Blue Pea. This herb promotes the circulation of blood in the scalp, thereby nourishing and toughening the follicles of the hair. It has been greatly used for several decades as an ingredient in ancient herbal medicines widely used in Thailand as a treatment for prematurely grey hair and hair loss.
The users will usually see expected results within one to three months. However, responses to these herbal treatments may vary as persons may have different kinds of hair roots and scalp.
