19 Herbal Remedies for Hair Growth!

Hair loss is a common concern for many men and women. There are many reasons your hair may fall out, from genetics and vitamin deficiencies, to hormone changes. Some medical conditions, such as thyroid disease, may also cause hair to thin or fall out.

There’s no magic bullet for growing hair, but research has shown some herbs may slow hair loss or help promote new growth.
Keep watching to learn how herbal remedies may be used to help improve your hair growth. Be sure to talk to your doctor before adding herbs to your daily routine, especially if your hair loss is caused by a medical condition.

Using clean hands, massage the hair oil directly to your scalp and rinse as directed.

Polyherbal ointments!

Herbal ointments, sometimes called herbal salves, are usually made by combining herbs with an oil like lanolin or petroleum jelly and water. Other ingredients may include beeswax or cocoa butter. Polyherbal ointments typically contain multiple herbal extracts.

Using clean hands, comb in or apply to your hair from root to tip, or as otherwise instructed. Use herbal cubosomal suspensions as directed by your doctor.

Possible side effects and risks!

The main risk of herbal hair growth products is allergic reaction. You should always do a patch test to check for an allergic reaction before using any herbs.

To do this:

Apply a small amount of product to the inside of your wrist.
Leave on for at least 24 hours.
If you haven’t experienced any irritation within a day, it should be safe to apply elsewhere.
If you do develop an allergic reaction, you may experience:

rash, hives, redness, itching, difficulty breathing, dizziness, headache.

Potential side effects of topical herbal hair growth products include:

thinning hair, increased hair loss, dry scalp, scalp redness or irritation.

There’s not enough information to standardize dosing recommendations.
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding shouldn’t use herbs to grow hair unless under the supervision of a doctor or a qualified natural health practitioner.

No herbal remedy can regrow a full head of hair. You should be wary of herbal products that claim to be a hair growth sensation.
Research has shown that some herbs may help strengthen hair, support scalp health, improve hair thickness, or stimulate the hair growth cycle.

Any herb may be used in all types of herbal hair product preparations. But it may be difficult to find over-the-counter hair growth products that include the herbs used in research. Your doctor or natural health practitioner may be able to help you find a remedy that best suits your needs.
Be sure to talk with your doctor before use. They can walk you through your treatment options and advise you on any next steps.
