Herbs To Prevent Hair Loss

Did you know that there are herbs that can fight baldness? Yes. There are some natural herbs you can take to actually help prevent thinning hair (a condition called alopecia).

Hair loss affects most men as they age. Progressive thinning of hair is the most common type of balding. Many men start having this problem as they reach the age of forty.

Around fifty percent of adult men suffer from a condition called male pattern baldness. The symptoms include “receding brow” or receding hairline”.

It is believed that the enzyme 5-alpha reductase causes this problem. This enzyme converts a hormone called testosterone into DHT (dihydrotestosterone). This increase of DHT is what inhibits the growth of hair.

Another type of hair loss, though less common, is one that affects women. It is called “female pattern baldness”. This is usually caused by decreasing estrogen. Estrogen is necessary to prevent balding in women.

Though there are many doctor prescribed treatments for hair loss, there are also some natural methods you may want to investigate.

Many herbs used to prevent baldness are of the type that increase circulation. These herbs are stimulating to the blood vessels contained in the scalp. This helps hair follicles regenerate.

Here are several herbs that are believed to slow or prevent hair loss.

He Shou Wu (Fo-Ti)

This herb has been used in China for centuries. It is good for the hair and skin. It strengthens and nourishes the blood, preventing hair loss and grey hair. Many people say that it actually turned their grey hair back to it’s original color.

Saw Palmetto

This herb is contained in most hair loss products. It is a natural DHT reducer. DHT is believed by doctors to be responsible for hair loss.

Stinging Nettle

Also a major ingredient in hair loss products, stinging nettle is also able to block the production of DHT. It also contains many vitamins that are good for the hair. This is reported to work well for women too.

Dong Quai

This is another popular herb used in Chinese Medicine to prevent hair loss. It works in a manner similar to He Shou Wu. It contains phytoestrogens, which help prevent the formation of DHT.

Ginkgo Biloba

This herb greatly improves blood circulation in the body, including the scalp. Supplying more blood to the scalp is believed to also provide more nutrients to the hair follicles and promote new hair growth.


This herb has a very high silica content and thus helps to repair tissues in the scalp and stimulate new hair growth.

Algae Extract

Sea vegetables contain a high concentration of vitamins, minerals and essential amino acids. Seaweeds like Himanthalia Elongata and Atlantic Kelp are often used in hair loss products. They contain antioxidants that help to prevent and heal damage done to the scalp by oxidation caused by free radicals. They also provide basic nutrients that are beneficial to the hair.

Panax Ginseng

Ginseng has been used in China for thousands of years for it’s many healing properties. Ginseng promotes blood circulation and helps regulate cellular metabolism, which helps promote healthy hair growth.

The next time you are looking for an all natural herbal hair growth formula, make sure it contains at least some of these herbs. These are proven by the test of time and have been used by millions of people for thousands of years. You should find them useful as well. For an all natural hair loss remedy, I recommend using Profollica.
