Hair loss has been a source of terrible embarrassment and anxiety for some people. They often associate it with old age and hide it by wearing hats or wigs. Most people will, once or twice in their lifetime try some form of hair growth medicines. But the truth is, most of them does not work or will just irritate your scalp and make your hair dry.
That's why herbal methods are the best way to treat hair loss. Not only are they effective but they assure you of a safe way to treat your hair. Herbs are all natural and organic. There are no synthetic chemicals to irritate your scalp. Here are some herbal remedies:
For example, Green tea contains enzymes called 5 Alpha Reductase that can help men who are suffering from male pattern baldness have a head full of hair.
For centuries, Stinging nettle has been a well-known home remedy for hair loss. Nowadays, you can buy capsules of this herb which you can take once or twice a day to prevent hair loss.
