Herbal hair fall reme­dies

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STAR SPECIAL -

IN this day and age, we are con­stantly bom­barded by im­ages of celebri­ties who epit­o­mise phys­i­cal per­fec­tion with daz­zling hair and mar­vel­lous skin. Th­ese at­tributes were achieved by del­i­cate care and, in some cases, pro­gres­sive ther­apy. There are ded­i­cated pro­fes­sion­als who aid them in their pur­suit of pris­tine hair and skin.

Neeta’s Herbal strives to achieve the same thing us­ing tra­di­tional herb-based prod­ucts to op­ti­mise the health of your hair and skin. In its 25-year his­tory, a vast ar­ray of hair and skin con­di­tions has been iden­ti­fied and suc­cess­fully reme­died us­ing only nat­u­ral, non­syn­thetic prod­ucts.

This unique method of hair­care com­bines mod­ern tech­nol­ogy with Ayurvedic medicine. In her quest for so­lu­tions to ever-present hair prob­lems, the founder of this en­ter­prise, Neeta Gos­alia, has an­a­lysed and tested ev­ery vi­able treat­ment tech­nique known.

It is im­por­tant to first un­der­stand the var­i­ous as­pects of each dis­or­der. Among the com­monly known con­di­tions, alope­cia takes the ti­tle of be­ing the most no­to­ri­ous. It ex­ists in a plethora of forms. An­dro­genic alope­cia is where hair fall is caused by minia­tur­i­sa­tion of hair fol­li­cles due to the over­pro­duc­tion of hor­mones, pri­mar­ily testos­terone and its ac­tive me­tab­o­lite di­hy­drotestos­terone. An­dro­genic alope­cia presents in dis­tinct pat­terns in both males and fe­males.

In the male pat­tern, hair re­cedes from the front of the scalp, while in the fe­male pat­tern hair is lost pri­mar­ily over the crown (mid­dle of the scalp) with spar­ing of the frontal hair.

Another com­mon form of alope­cia is alope­cia areata. This is con­sid­ered an au­toim­mune disease where mul­ti­ple struc­tures of the hair fol­li­cle are mis­tak­enly an­tag­o­nised by our own im­mune sys­tem dur­ing its growth phase, re­sult­ing in im­proper hair de­vel­op­ment. Ap­prox­i­mately 20% of areata suf­fer­ers have a fam­ily his­tory of it, while in oth­ers the dis­or­der may be trig­gered by a ma­jor life event such as an ill­ness, preg­nancy or post­trau­matic stress. The ef­fects of this disease are phys­i­cally rep­re­sented as patches that ap­pear on non-spe­cific ar­eas of the scalp.

De­spite be­ing slightly less com­mon, another hair ail­ment that is wor­thy of men­tion is tel­o­gen ef­flu­vium.

The tel­o­gen phase is a nat­u­ral phase of the hair growth cy­cle in which a small num­ber of hair shafts are shed from their fol­li­cles.

Dur­ing tel­o­gen ef­flu­vium, an in­creased pro­por­tion of hair fol­li­cles are forced into this phase, in­duc­ing ex­ces­sive shed­ding of hair.

It is im­por­tant to es­tab­lish that not all hair fall prob­lems can be at­trib­uted to ge­netic de­fects or com­pli­cated dis­eases. Very fre­quently our hair is cor­nered into a detri­men­tal state due to un­healthy habits that con­trib­ute to the degra­da­tion of the hair fol­li­cle and its as­so­ci­ated struc­tures.

For most of the dis­or­ders men­tioned, mod­ern medicine sug­gests a cock­tail of drugs such as mi­nox­i­dil, fi­nas­teride and a va­ri­ety of cor­ti­cos­teroids.

How­ever, in most cases, they fail to men­tion the side ef­fects of th­ese drugs.

Neeta’s Herbal prefers the use of nat­u­rally oc­cur­ring, non-syn­thetic in­gre­di­ents to nur­ture and strengthen your hair.

It is pos­si­ble to re­verse any and all of the prob­lems metioned us­ing sim­ple herbal coun­ter­mea­sures that are safe and free of de­bil­i­tat­ing side ef­fects.

Apart from hair­care, Neeta’s Herbal also ad­min­is­ters treat­ment for skin prob­lems and dis­or­ders. Hair wigs, hair ex­ten­sions and cus­tomised wigs are also avail­able at its cen­tres.
