5 Natural Herbs for Hair Loss Prevention

My herb of the week, chamomile, along with rosemary, sage, catnip, and burdock root are five natural herbs used as a treatment for hair loss prevention. I lost my hair years ago. My search for a cure for hair loss ended then. If you're lucky enough to still have your hair, and want to keep it, using these herbs in the following fashion may just help. First though, we need to understand a few things about hair growth and loss.

Alopecia, a medical term for hair loss, occurs on various areas of the scalp. Hair is a living protein which receives its nourishment from our blood. Stimulating the scalp promotes circulation and prevents hair loss. Hair loss causes can occur from stress, shock to the body, or illness. I was involved in an auto accident years ago. My hair fell out in clumps after the accident. I was losing my hair before this anyway, but it sure didn't help. So what can you do to prevent hair loss? Here's a simple remedy.

It's not really a hair loss shampoo, but more of a hair loss rinse. Take the five natural herbs for hair loss and try the following remedy.

Boil 1 tbsp. of each herb, dried, in approximately two cups of water for 15 minutes. Let the rinse cool until lukewarm. Next, strain the hair rinse and apply to your scalp with a massaging technique for five minutes. The natural ingredients of each herb should add strength to your hair follicles and you should gain circulatory benefits from the massaging. Repeat this every time you wash your hair. These natural herbs for hair loss prevention are just one more way herbs provide healthy benefits to the body.
