The Best Herbs to Regrow Hair and Stop Hair Loss


There many natural ways to regrow hair and stop hair loss. One of the best ways to do this involves the use of herbal remedies. Herbs have long been used to treat different ailments and hair loss is no exception.

One of the best herbs for hair loss is Ayurveda. This herb is extracted and used in oil form to apply directly on the scalp. The components in the ayurveda oil helps stimulate hair growth in the follicles and helps slow down the loss of hair. There other essential oils that can be used for hair regrowth such as coconut oil and jojoba oil. All of these oil extracts derive from plants that grow in India.

Wild yam is a very popular herb used to stimulate hair growth in both men and women. It stimulates growth by activating the hormones in the hair follicles. The more you use this herb on your hair and scalp the better results you’ll see.

Other than wild yam, saw palmetto is a very effective herb when it comes to hair loss. Saw palmetto is probably the most popular out of all the herbs for hair loss. This herb helps hair loss sufferers by inhibiting the activity of the male hormone responsible for male pattern baldness. The name of this hormone is 5 alpha reductates, and when it is inhibited your hair will have a chance to grow again.

Stinging nettle root is another herb known for its hair regrowth potential. This herb stops the production of DHT, which is the male hormone 5 alpha reductates produces. You can take this herb as an oral supplement or use it in its oil form and apply it directly to your hair or scalp.

It’s important to note that even though these herbs possess hair growth potential you have to take it a day at a time. You won’t see noticeable results after just a day, a week, or even a month of using these herbs. When you go the natural route and use herbs it can take months to see the results you’re looking for.

Along with using herbs you should also focus on eating more green leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, or brocolli. These vegetables help provide your hair with the nutrition it needs to survive and grow.

Pygeum is a herb that is much like green tea. It helps promote hair growth by not only increasing blood flow to your hair follicles, but also by inhibiting the activity of the 5 alpha reductates enzymes that cause the production of DHT. You can consume this herb like a tea by boiling the leaves and straining it.

Finally, one of the best herbs for hair loss is gingko biloba because it increases the circulation of blood to the scalp and hair follicles. With this increase in blood flow your hair will get the nutrients it needs to keep growing in a healthy manner.

You should stop alcohol consumption while using these herbs to treat your hair loss, as alcohol can counteract with the process of regrowing your hair. Quitting smoking is also a good idea too while you’re treating your hair loss with these herbs.
