Herbal rem­edy for hair loss

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STAR SPECIAL -

WE are con­stantly bom­barded with im­ages of ac­tors, mod­els, singers and other sen­sa­tional beau­ties, all epit­o­mis­ing phys­i­cal per­fec­tion.

Neeta’s Herbal strives to achieve the same stan­dard us­ing tra­di­tional herb-based prod­ucts to op­ti­mise the health of your hair and skin.

Dur­ing the 25-year his­tory of this or­gan­i­sa­tion, var­i­ous hair and skin con­di­tions have been iden­ti­fied and suc­cess­fully reme­died us­ing nat­u­ral, non-syn­thetic prod­ucts.

This unique method of hair care com­bines the use of mod­ern tech­nol­ogy with Ayurvedic medicine.

In her quest to at­tain so­lu­tions for hair prob­lems, founder Nita Gos­alia has an­a­lysed and tested ev­ery known treat­ment tech­nique.

Among the com­monly known hair con­di­tions is alope­cia, which ex­ists in var­i­ous forms.

An­dro­genic alope­cia is a form of hair fall caused by the minia­tur­isa- tion of hair fol­li­cles due to the over­pro­duc­tion of hor­mones, pri­mar­ily testos­terone and its ac­tive me­tab­o­lite di­hy­drotestos­terone.

These hor­mones are pre­sent in all of us as they play an im­por­tant role in the devel­op­ment of var­i­ous bi­o­log­i­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics in men and women. How­ever, in ex­ces­sive amounts, these an­dro­gens can af­fect our scalp cells.

An­dro­genic alope­cia presents it­self in dis­tinct pat­terns in males and fe­males.

In the male pat­tern, hair re­cedes from the front of the scalp, while hair is lost pri­mar­ily on the crown in the fe­male pat­tern.

An­other com­mon form is alope­cia areata. This is con­sid­ered an au­toim­mune dis­ease in which mul­ti­ple struc­tures of the hair fol­li­cle are mis­tak­enly an­tag­o­nised by our im­mune sys­tem dur­ing its growth, re­sult­ing in im­proper hair devel­op­ment.

Ap­prox­i­mately 20% of areata suf­fer­ers have a fam­ily his­tory of alope­cia, while in oth­ers, the dis­or­der may be trig­gered by a ma­jor life event such as ill­ness, preg­nancy or post-trau­matic stress.

The ef­fects of this dis­ease are patches that ap­pear on non-spe­cific ar­eas of the scalp.

De­spite be­ing slightly less com­mon, an­other hair ail­ment is tel­o­gen ef­flu­vium. In tel­o­gen ef­flu­vium, an in­creased pro­por­tion of hair fol­li­cles are forced into this phase, in­duc­ing ex­ces­sive shed­ding of hair.

Not all hair fall prob­lems are due to ge­netic de­fects or dis­eases. Un­healthy habits such as ex­ces­sive smok­ing and con­sump­tion of al­co­hol, an im­bal­anced diet and ir­reg­u­lar sleep­ing habits also con­trib­ute to the degra­da­tion of hair fol­li­cle.

For most of the above, mod­ern medicine sug­gests the use of drugs and a va­ri­ety of cor­ti­cos­teroids.

How­ever, in most cases, what it fails to men­tion is the detri­men­tal side ef­fects of these drugs.

Neeta’s Herbal uses nat­u­ral, non­syn­thetic in­gre­di­ents to nur­ture hair. Hair wigs, hair ex­ten­sions and cus­tomised wigs are also avail­able at its cen­tres.

Neeta’s Herbal also of­fers skin treat­ments.
