Herbal solution to hair woes
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.
