Herbal remedies increase circulation, disinfect the scalp and stimulate hair growth. 

  • Rinse your hair with apple cider vinegar and sage tea. This helps hair grow. 
    Catmint or chamomile infusions used as a final rinse can help with itchiness, a source of hair loss. 

  • Aloe, nettles, stinging nettle, birch leaves and watercress are excellent blood and skin cleaners. Drink 1 tbsp. of juice of stinging nettle, birch leaves and watercress, mixed in a glass of water to cleanse the blood. 

  • Licorice extract may help prevent hair loss. Used as a tea, parsley strengthens the kidneys. A tea made from raspberry and blackberry leaves is also good for they kidney. 

  • Horsetail is a good source of silica. Silica helps to keep hair strong and looking shiny and sleek. To shampoo hair, steep 2 tbsp. horsetail in 4 oz. hot water and add to a baby shampoo. Massage scalp regularly with tinctures of stinging nettle, birch, horsetail and rosemary for hair growth stimulation, to disinfect the scalp and to increase blood circulation. 

  • Rosemary or stinging-nettle may help combat dandruff, a source of hair loss. Put a large handful of rosemary into a pan and cover with water. Simmer for 10-15 minutes and leave to cool. Strain the mixture through a sieve into a jug containing a few drops of wheatgerm or any oil. Use this as a rinse after you have washed your hair with a very mild shampoo. Finally rinse thoroughly with tepid water. 

  • Arnica, marigold, rosemary, or southernwood are also useful for hair loss. For best results, massage an infused oil into the scalp. 

  • A tea of marshmallow and burdock is good for dry hair. To make the tea, add 1 tsp of marshmallow and 1 tsp of burdock to a cup of hot water. 

Ayurvedic Anti-stress Tea:

  • Mix equal proportions of jatamamsi and brahmi. Steep 1 teaspoon of this mix in 1 cup of hot water. Drink 2 or 3 times a day to relieve stress, which is a cause for hair loss. 

  • Chinese Herbs Psoralea seeds: Eat 3 to 9 grams of the seeds daily. A study examining the effects of psoralea extracts and exposure to ultraviolet light in forty- five bald men found that, within six months, hair was completely restored in 36 percent of the cases and there was a significant restoration in another 30 percent. 

  • Oyster and clam shell. Crush and decoct into a tea to increase kidney qi.

Hair Loss, Baldness
Conventional Treatments for Hair Loss 

There are only two FDA approved remedies that can generate increased hair growth. One is Rogaine, or topical minoxidil, which is a shampoo available in a few strengths. The other drug is Propecia, which is a small dose of the prostate drug finasteride. But, they don't work for everyone, especially when there is actual baldness rather than thinning of hair. 

Rogaine and Propecia share some crucial drawbacks. The biggest drawback is that if you stop taking them, you will start losing your hair again and the quality of the overall hair is poor. So, once started you will have to continue with this for the rest of your life or till you are ready to go out with a bald head! They are also very expensive. (A wig may be cheaper!) 

In addition, we do not know what using these drugs for an extended period of time will do to us in the short or long term. Minoxidil is a blood-pressure-lowering medication that can, even in shampoo form, affect aspects of heart function. 

Researchers at the University of Toronto reported that rogaine may cause heart changes if used for long periods of time. Propecia has been known to cause loss of libido and impotence. Finasteride interferes with the conversion of testosterone to another form of the hormone. 

Complementary therapies do not have the side effects noted with these drugs. Hormone therapy may be prescribed for certain types of hair loss. But it does possess some risk. 

Some doctors may try to speed recovery form alopecia areata with corticosteroids applied topically or injected in the scalp. The treatment can be painful. It may also cause permanent scarring in the scalp. 

Cortisone taken orally may stimulate new hair growth. But the effect is likely to be temporary. 

Prednisone, another orally administered steroid, has proved effective in some cases of alopecia areata. Side effects include weight gain, metabolic abnormalities, acne, and menstrual problems. 

Hormone therapy in the form of birth-control pills may reverse baldness due to hormonal imbalances in young women. 

Hair transplantation is another technique used to combat baldness. This involves the relocation of plugs of skin from parts of the scalp containing active hair follicles to bald areas. Several hundred plugs may be needed to be implanted at the rate of about 10 to 60 at a session. The transplanted hair may drop out, but new hair usually begins to grow from the transplanted follicles within several months. The process is painful and expensive, and it does nothing to retard genetic or age-related hair loss. 

Scalp reduction is a form of cosmetic surgery that involves tightening the scalp so that hair- bearing skin from the back and sides of the head is pulled toward the crown. Hair may then be transplanted to the remaining bald area at the top of the head. The process is painful and expensive. It does nothing to retard genetic or age-related hair loss.
