Herbal so­lu­tion to hair woes

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Body, Mind & Soul - Wellness - Neeta’s Herbal of­fers safe, nat­u­ral so­lu­tions to com­bat hair prob­lems.

WHILE lus­trous, healthy hair is a source of pride for men and women alike, many are forced to bat­tle an ar­ray of hair prob­lems.

Com­monly en­coun­tered hair dilem­mas in­clude hair loss, pre­ma­ture grey­ing, hered­i­tary bald­ness, male pat­tern bald­ness, alope­cia areata – also known as patchy bald­ness – and dan­druff.

There are many rea­sons why a per­son may start los­ing hair.

Re­search shows that stress is a vi­tal fac­tor, while poor hair care regime, cli­mate changes, life­style and diet also con­trib­ute to the loss of hair.

It is im­por­tant to as­cer­tain what kind of hair you have and then look after it in a man­ner spe­cific to you as an in­di­vid­ual.

Dry hair needs plenty of nour­ish­ment from the roots, while oily hair re­quires a dif­fer­ent ther­apy.

Hair loss, also called alope­cia, falls into two cat­e­gories: one where it is dis­trib­uted over the scalp, the other where hair loss is lo­calised to cer­tain ar­eas of the scalp.

In some alope­cia cases the con­di­tion is caused by bac­te­rial in­fec­tion or other pathogens, oth­ers may be at­trib­uted to se­vere sys­temic dis­ease.

Neeta Gos­alia, owner of Neeta’s Herbal Rem­edy, has seen clients with on­go­ing strug­gle with hair loss, but un­der­go­ing her herbal treat­ments has changed that.

Other prob­lems as­so­ci­ated with hair and scalp in­clude dan­druff, rashes, itch­i­ness, pim­ple-like pro­tru­sions (some­times filled with pus), dry and brit­tle hair, pre­ma­ture grey­ing, patchy bald­ness and male-pat­tern bald­ness.

Dry, brit­tle hair with split ends can be due to fre­quent perming, straight­en­ing and ex­ces­sive use of the hair dryer.

The root is the hair’s life source; where es­sen­tial char­ac­ter­is­tics of each strand is determined through the bi­o­log­i­cal pro­cesses in­volved in hair for­ma­tion. It is re­spon­si­ble for the colour, tex­ture, length, thick­ness and shine that hair pos­sesses.

Th­ese pro­vide the start­ing point for hair­care prod­ucts de­signed to bring out the best in their nat­u­ral qual­i­ties. There­fore, root nour­ish­ment is es­sen­tial for healthy hair.

Neeta men­tioned that highly con­cen­trated chem­i­cally ac­tive lotions used in perming is detri­men­tal to hair fol­li­cles.

“Many of my clients have ex­pe­ri­enced bald­ness due to the bru­tal process of perming.”

In some cases, bald­ing ap­pears to be com­mon among male mem­bers of a fam­ily, such ge­netic dis­or­ders may also be treated de­pend­ing on the sever­ity of the prob­lem and whether the pores can still be ac­ti­vated.
