Hair loss is a condition that is most commonly associated with males; however, it is seen that older females will also suffer from this problem. In previous years, the most common cause of hair loss was age and the influence of genetics but in modern society there seem to be far more contributors to alopecia (the technical term for hair loss). Due to the contemporary individual's poor diet, lack of exercise, and many styling treatments; the increase in risk of hair loss at a younger age is higher than ever before. Of course, there are pharmaceutical treatments that can assist in reducing or preventing this problem but they can result in additional side effects. This article will discuss the natural method to avoid this condition and looks at the top herbs to promote hair growth.
1. Ginkgo Biloba
One of the most beneficial herbs currently available for various ailments, ginkgo biloba is highly advantageous as a natural hair growth agent. Due to the herb's ability to increase blood flow to the brain, it is able to stimulate the growth of hair follicles and repair any damage that may have been experienced. Many people in the global population utilize ginkgo biloba as a memory enhancement supplement; however, it is also possible for these natural herbal supplements to stimulate hair growth when taken on a daily basis.
A well-known Chinese herb, ginseng is another stimulating resource that influences the activity in the brain and central nervous system. As with ginkgo biloba, ginseng is able to stimulate areas within the brain and repair any damages to the hair follicles; thus promoting hair growth for the individual. It is possible to locate ginseng in the form of herbal supplements but this herb is most commonly found as an ingredient in organic shampoo.
Rosemary is arguably the most well-known natural agent used as a hair loss treatment. This herb has been used by individuals of different cultures for hundreds of years and is most effective during the initial stages of hair loss. While it is possible to apply the crushed rosemary directly and see positive results, it is recommended that the rosemary is combined with olive oil as this will stimulate hair growth and nourish the hair follicles. Yet, it should be noted that rosemary does present several side effects for people with neurological conditions such as epilepsy; therefore, it should be used carefully.
One unique herb that is not very well known among the general population is that of horsetail. This oddly named herb is commonly used as a strengthening agent for bones and nails; however, it is also beneficial as a means of reducing hair loss. The ability of the herb to strengthen body parts includes the human hair and, as such, improves the quality of the hair follicles. Horsetail can be found in many natural conditioners and should be used regularly to act as one of the many herbs to promote hair growth.
