Each day, the scalp sheds up to 100 hairs. It’s a natural part of the hair growth cycle and is usually nothing to be concerned about. However, if you’ve been noticing more than usual, it’s understandable you may be a little concerned.
If you’ve done a quick internet search, you’ll likely have discovered many natural remedies claiming to help stop hair loss in its tracks. One which is gaining more recognition lately is Ayuverda. But could this really be the answer to hair loss?
Ayuverda and links to hair loss
Ayuverda is a complementary medicine which works on the belief that everything, dead and alive, is connected through the universe. In order to be healthy, the body, mind and spirit need to be working in harmony with the universe. Ayuverda medicine aims to rectify whatever imbalance is in the body, to eliminate whatever health problem a patient may have.
There are Ayuverda remedies to combat all types of illnesses, conditions and diseases, including hair loss. There are five main Ayuverda treatments to combat hair loss including Bhringraja, Neem, Amla, Shikakai and Ritha.
Neem leaves are said to help combat hair fall and skin conditions. It is typically used in paste form and applied directly onto the scalp. Amla is an Indian Gooseberry, and it helps to keep the hair strong and healthy, as well as preventing greying of the hair. Simply drinking its juice is said to help, but you can also apply an Amla oil onto the scalp too.
The one thing all of these Ayuverda treatments have in common, is they’re designed to strengthen the hair and make it healthier. They aren’t actually designed to combat hair loss that’s already started. So, while they could prove beneficial at delaying or preventing some types of hair loss, unfortunately for the majority of hair loss conditions, they’re not going to be the answer.
Seeking proper treatment
If you have noticed you’re shedding more than 100 hairs, it’s important to seek advice from a hair specialist. There are many effective treatments available and finding the right one as early as possible will make a massive difference. The longer you delay getting the right treatment, the worse the hair loss could become.
So, if you are worried about hair loss, book a consultation with a hair specialist today. Never turn to natural remedies until you’re certain there isn’t an underlying issue or the hair loss isn’t caused by a genuine condition. You may be using up valuable time which could have stemmed your hair loss.
