Natural Cures for Hair Loss. After having tried many treatments and having stuck with them for years, these days we only use natural remedies. But if your condition is severe or you are almost bold, you may have to try chemical eatments at the same time.
The nettle plant (used as nettle root – and leaf extract – as powder or in tablet/capsule form) is one of the best natural cures for hair loss and some skin conditions. This because it is particularly rich in minerals and vitamins, definitively the ones recommended for hair, skin and nail health. It also has anti-androgenetic properties (definitely as much as the better known Saw Palmetto) as well as anti-seborrheic, anti-inflammatory and anti-dandruff properties: the perfect combination for your hair health. Nettle root extracts contain the highest amount of anti-DHT elements. Dosage: 2 to 4 tablets a day (400mg per tablet).
Nettle root extracts have also been used in the form of infusions, oils and (very usefully) alcohol preparations. Soaps and face cleansers containing nettle root extracts are, for example, useful against your acne in that its properties kill bacteria and smooth the skin. Nettle root extracts also have anti-inflammatory properties.
If you suffer from dry dandruff and weak hair, you can use a nettle oil infusion (extra virgin olive oil and nettle root extract infused by your herbalist): apply it to your scalp as directed on the bottle, massage it onto your scalp until absorbed. One hour later you can shampoo your hair.
If you are only interested in natural cures for hair loss which possess anti-DHT properties, you may want to combine nettle extract with Black Currant Oil, Pumpkin Seed Oil, Saw Palmetto, Burdock root oil or Plantain oil. The combination will be a powerful one which will boost the hair follicles that are in the telogen phase (when the hair starts falling out).
Nettle root extracts is extremely useful in female hair loss when this is due to either telogen effluvium (when a lot of hair has suddenly entered the telogen phase, often due to some imbalances) or due to excessive DHT on their scalp (androgenetic alopecia, the most common form of hair loss). It is equally useful in male hair loss and can be used as Propecia or Finasteride are used by male patients.
