Herbal Medicines for Alopecia (Baldness or Hair Loss)

For centuries, men and women have massaged their scalps with rosemary herb in olive oil to maintain healthy hair. Eating sesame seeds is a Chinese remedy for preventing hair loss. Tincture of stinging nettle can also help prevent thinning hair. Flaxseed oil (2 tablespoons daily), containing fatty acids, helps keep hair from thinning. Black currant oil (500 mg) capsule twice a day) is even more powerful.

  • Try rubbing the juice of a quince on the bald area everyday. Eat flaxseed and drink sage tea. Sage tea will stimulate hair growth. Rub bald spots with kerosene once a day. For falling hair, try wetting the scalp daily with strong rosemary, sage, or white oak bark tea.
  • Herbal practitioners recommend making a strong tea of bayberry and rubbing it in well at night. Wash off in the morning, brush the hair thoroughly, and apply again. Possibly add a few drops of lavender oil. "This will quickly stop falling hair and remove dandruff.

  • Make a paste of 1/2 teaspoon fenugreek powder and 3/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk. Then massage the scalp vigorously with it twice a week for 2 months.
  • DHT (dihydrotestosterone) binds to hair follicles, shrinks them, and causes them to die and fall out. (It also causes prostate enlargement.) To eliminate this effect of DHT, take saw palmetto (160 mg) every morning and another dose every evening. (The product should be "concentrated and purified" and have 85 to 95 percent fatty acids and sterols.) This herb works by preventing the conversion of testosterone (male sex hormone) into DHT. Licorice contains a compound which also blocks DHT.
  • The herb, phygeum (60 to 500 mg), also has this blocking action. And nettle (50 to 100 mg) enhances the effects of phygeum. Zinc (30 mg daily for 6 months) helps keep DHT from getting to the hair follicles.
  • Some people put a little cayenne pepper on their scalp. It surely will bring the blood and might even produce some hair. But it may get in the eyes. Most people are not prepared to deal with this extreme method.
  • One woman had total hair loss by the age of 32. She restored it with the following formula. Using a wooden or plastic (not aluminum) utensil, mix the following essential oils in a glass bowl: 1 tablespoon jojoba oil, 3 drops rosemary oil, 3 drops lavender oil, 1 drop lemon balm, and 1 drop Atlas cedarwood oil. Massage the mixture into your scalp and leave on for 30 minutes or overnight. Wash your hair, adding 1 drop of rosemary oil to each shampoo application. As a final rinse, add 1 drop each of lavender oil and rosemary oil to a quart of cool water and pour it over your head. (Source: Herbal Remedies Encyclopedia)
