Everyday, people are using and finding products that are natural to cure there hair problems. We will go over a couple of the more common hair loss herbs used to treat hair loss and other hair related issues.

What is important to remember if you choose to try any of the herbs we suggest in this article is that they are not actually medications. Therefore, you have no real guarantee that they will work for you, even if they have worked for others. However, there is very little chance of them harming you if you do decide to try them.

All of the herbs that are suggested will work in different ways. Below are a few of the more common hair loss herbs and how they may affect your hair.

1. Chamomile - This is not only a great herb for helping to promote healthy new hair growth but is superb for helping to reduce stress levels. In some cases, the cause of hair loss can be that a person is under extreme pressure, which causes their stress levels to rise.

2. Catnip or Burdock - These two herbs are useful for healthy hair growth; this in turn reduces the effects or risk of hair loss. You will usually find these two herbs in a solution, such as in a hair loss shampoo or conditioner, which you apply, as you would normally use one of these products.

3. Saw Palmetto - You will find a lot written about this particular herb. Using this herb will help with the reduction of DHT, A normal hormone found in both men and women. If too much of this hormone is produced, it will affect the hair follicles making it easier for your hair to fall out.

4. Green Tea - In studies of women in Japan, researchers have found that by drinking the herb it could help to increase their levels of the sex hormone binding globulin. This then helps to prevent their bodies from producing too much of the male hormone testosterone, often found to be a cause for hair loss in women.

Along with the hair loss herbs that we have mentioned above, there are plenty of suggestions on other herbs that can help to treat this condition. Ones like apple cider vinegar, and sage tea, or psoralea seeds, which you apply directly to your scalp, or you can try ginger or liquorice extract instead.
