Ginkgo Biloba

 

Ginkgo Biloba has been widely used as a herbal remedy in treating thinning hair and hair loss. One common cause of thinning hair and hair loss is poor blood circulation to the scalp area, and thus hair roots would tend to become weakened. Coupled with the constant exposure to air particles and pollution, the hair becomes damaged and continues to fall and break.

Ginkgo Biloba can act as the perfect answer for hair loss. It quickens blood flow to important peripheral parts of the human body including the fine capillaries under the scalp. Oxygen in the blood carries with it important nutrients and all essential vitamins E and A to give a new lease of life every time to the scalp. Once all these important supplies start to reach the human scalp, hair repair and growth will occur.

Henna

 

 

Henna has been used as hair dye for many centuries. It is the dried leaf and stem powder of the plant Lawsonia inermis, a native plant of tropical countries in Africa and South Asia. The best coloring henna in the world is the Rajasthani Indian Henna. It is 100% natural, and thus, allergic reactions are very rare.

Neem

 

 

In India, the neem tree is variously known as "Sacred Tree," "Heal All," "Nature's Drugstore," "Village Pharmacy" and "Panacea for all diseases." Products made from the neem tree have been used in India for over two millennia for their medicinal properties. Neem products have been observed to be anthelmintic, antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral and many more. It helps to:


• relieve dry skin

Shikakai

 

Shikakai, which means “fruit for hair”, has been used for hair cleansing in India for centuries. Shikakai acts as a natural astringent in traditional hair shampoos as it consists of binding properties that can clears dandruff and cleans the dirt accumulated on the scalp. Therefore, the powder or the extract from the bark, leaves or pods is used as a hair cleansing agent to effectively remove oil and dirt from hair.

Being a natural conditioner for hair, shikakai strengthens hair roots and promotes luxuriant growth. Powdered shikakai or shikakai extract has certain vital properties that act as coolants for the scalp too. The common practice is to apply oil to hair and scalp and allow it soak for sometimes. This will keep the body cool, reducing body heat and also prevent the scalp from getting dry. Then, the powdered shikakai is used as a shampoo to wash off the oil.

Since Shikakai is naturally low in pH, it is therefore extremely mild, and does not strip the hair of its natural oils. Usually no rinse or conditioner is used since shikakai also helps in the disentangling of the hair.
