Herbal remedy for hair loss
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.
