Powerful Herbs That Are A Boon For Your Hair

Are you obsessed with your hair? Do you face hair fall problems or thinning of hair?

You might have heard about a few herbs from your grandma. Our grandmas follow the tradition of using the natural herbs for hair growth, preventing hair loss and in general maintain a healthy hair condition. Hence, they used to have black, thick, shiny, lustrous, healthy hair even after ageing.

The herbs that were used since ancient times were Bhringraj (king of herbs), Brahmi, Amla, Henna, Shikakai, Arista, Aloe vera, Hibiscus, Fenugreek seeds, and Curry leaves.

Today, we lose the characteristics of healthy hair early, right at the age of 40s and 50s. Sometimes even in the late 30s, we start to experience the deteriorating hair conditions such as hair fall, thinning of hair, greying of hair, etc. All this is because of various factors such as pollution, environment, water quality, hair products used, the food we consume, etc. We don’t take proper care or nourish our hair, yet we expect our hair to be healthy, thick and shiny. Our hair needs to be nourished and maintained properly.
