Hair loss is a common problem faced by many. Baldness in men is at least accepted in the society but it is not the same for women. Just like any other part of our body, hair is also considered to be part of our body. So taking care of them has always been significant.

Now-a-days increasing workloads have resulted in stress and anxiety, which are some of the common causes of hair loss. Some of the causes can be linked to hormones. In men the sexual hormone testosterone is converted to Dehydrotestosterone (DHT) which is responsible for hair loss or pattern baldness. The same hormone in women called androgen when in excess causes hair loss. This hormonal imbalance in women appears during and after pregnancy and around menopause.

Baldness can be avoided if you follow these guidelines;

•    Herbs: There are many herbs available which help to reduce hair fall. Some of these are:

1.    Saw Palmetto
2.    Stinging Nettle
3.    Green Tea (Camellia sinesis)
4.    Pygeum (Pygeum africanum): africa
5.    Dong Quai: chinese
6.    He Shou Wu (Polygonum multiflorum): chinese
7.    Channelled Wrack (Pelvetia Canaliculata Extract)
8.    Ginseng: chinese

Saw Palmetto, Stinging Nettle, Pygeum, Dong Quai curbs production of DHT. Green tea and Ginseng inhibit production of 5-alpha reductase which converts testosterone to DHT. Channelled Wrack contains isoflavones which has anti-oxidant properties like vitamin E. used to promote hair regrowth. This and Dong quai are prescribed for hair loss cure for women.

•    Diet: Vitamins A, B, E are essential in your diet for healthy hair. Vitamin A acts as an anti-oxidant and helps in production of sebum in scalp. Vitamin E stimulates blood circulation which helps to keep hair follicles productive, but excess may harm your hair. Vitamin B also helps in blood circulation. Eating small amount of white sesame seeds daily adds calcium and magnesium to the body which help strengthen hair follicles.

•    Massage: Massaging the scalp thrice a week improves blood circulation. Rubbing vigorously activates the sebaceous glands. Massaging with the help of oil helps to nourish and strengthen the roots. Coconut, almond and sesame oil can be used for massages. Bhringraj (Eclipta elba) oil, Amala oil, and Arnica oil are also very useful. Ayurvedic preparation Bhringraj (Eclipta elba), Amala, corals, iron and black sesame seeds is very useful, and even stops the graying of hair.
•    Washing: washing hair with Amala (embilica officinalis) and Shikakai (Acacia concinna) nourishes them.

•    Ayurvedic tips: “pitta dosha” in body can cause hair fall. It is caused by excessive intake of alcohol, tea, coffee, meat and due to spicy, oily, sour, acidic foods. Some of the ayurvedic remedies for hair loss:

1.    Apply coconut oil with lime juice daily.
2.    Drink lettuce and spinach juice. It can also be mixed with alfalfa.
3.    Wash hair with paste of fried black beans and fenugreek 2-3 times a week,
4.    Make paste of licorice in milk or paste of lemon and black pepper and apply on bald patches for hair growth.

•    Yoga and meditation: It also helps to improve blood circulation and relieve stress. Yoga poses like headstand, standing forward bend and shoulder stand helps.

Ayurveda is definitely a sure-fire way to get rid of hair loss and balding.

      As we have noted here there can be various reasons why baldness and hair fall come into picture. Please visit a nearby ayurvedic doctor for a complete examination.

      Bhringaraj products are good for hair growth but we will not be able to prescribe a particular medicine with out physical examination.

    My husband is suffering from baldiness.Tall me a perfect solution for balding…..thanks u very much

      Thank you for contacting us!
      In fact baldness can be result of multiple things as described below.

      1. Hereditary
      2. some types of skin diseases.
      3. Weather change
      4. Bathing Water problem
      5. Life style(lack of vitamins and minerals in food.)
      6. Lack of proper exercises.

      As you can see there are multiple reason behind hair fall, it is no way possible to prescribe a particular medicine to a baldness patient without doing a physical check.

      Although Bhringaraj products are helpful for hair growth, I would strongly suggest to visit a nearby doctor and get your husband be examined. This will help a lot and you can avoid side-effects of blindly administering medicines.

    I Have started alopecia from front of my head. At Frist healthy hair get thin and again thin and then loss. This process is continiously going on with rapid speed. About 3 inche squre area have been bald from both side of my front head. Like W shape. Rest of my hair are healthy. I used hamdard product about six month but not regrow my hair back on bald place i used homeopaithic medicine too but not the positive result. I noticed my hairloss, may be two years ago but in previous 4 month hair loss speed are very fast in this time period about 2 inch squre of scalp area are hairless in front of my head.
    I had been doing some wrong sexual work for 16 years may be this is the cause of hairloss or may be harmone (testosteron) disorder.

    So plzzzzzzzz give me any suitable solution to re grow my hair back on bald place .

      There are several reason behind alopecia. Few are there trichotillomania, hereditary, hair styles like ponytails or braids. It is an essential exercise to find out which is the reason behind alopecia. Once that is done, it will be necessary to do a physical check up to find out body “dosa” type as per ayurveda then only a proper effective treatment can be started. Regrowing hair is strictly depend on body type and may not work on everyone. But preventing further hair loss can be treated easily with Ayurveda. All type of Bhringaraj based medicines(medicated oil) are helpful. We strongly suggest you to visit a near by GOOD ayurvedic doctor. Ask for the prescription of proper medication.

      It is too rough to prescribe medicines on this forum online without checking the patient physically.
