Herbal extracts, which have a healing effect on the whole body, can also be used to keep the hair in good condition. The treatment against hair loss includes extracts from horsetail, rosemary, birch and nettle.


Why does hair fall out?

The causes of hair loss can be divided into physiological, which are related to the natural processes occurring in the body, as well as diseases that require treatment. Physiological changes include, for example, hair loss after giving birth, when you can lose up to half of it. This is mainly because during pregnancy, hormones inhibit hair loss, so there are new hairs on the head and those that would normally fall out a long time ago. After giving birth, however, hormone levels change, and therefore the number of hairs begins to decrease.

Another reason is the negative impact of the external environment, as a result of which the hair becomes dry, breaks and falls out. This often happens after summer vacation, when we don't wear a hat or scarf. Then the scalp tans, and from a medical point of view, a tan is an inflammation of the skin, i.e. a skin disease.

Herbs in the treatment against hair loss.

To some extent, the hair can be strengthened with herbs, because their ingredients reach with the blood and can nourish the hair follicles. Among the whole range of herbs, due to the properties desired for our hairstyles, the following are especially recommended:

Field horsetail.

It is a real treasury of potassium and easily absorbable silica, which is a valuable building block of hair, as it makes it more flexible and strengthens its structure. Horsetail extract provides the necessary ions and microelements, disinfects and slightly astringent. In addition, it has the effect of stopping greying, brittleness and split ends. Silicon deficiency leads not only to hair loss, but also to dull skin or brittle nails.

Medical rosemary.

Rosemary is rich in antioxidants that fight harmful free radicals. By improving blood flow to the scalp, rosemary extract stimulates hair bulbs to grow. It is a herbal remedy for preventing hair loss, and also has anti-dandruff, disinfectant and astringent properties.


It has an anti-inflammatory, cleansing and refreshing effect. The extract of this tree regenerates the hair, giving it vitality, shine, fluffiness and softness. In addition, they become smooth and elastic.


It is rich in vitamins A and C, as well as key minerals and lipids that can be beneficial for your hair. Nettle blocks the conversion of testosterone to its "stronger" form, i.e. dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is the main cause of male baldness. DHT damages the hair follicles, and the hair on the temples is the most sensitive to this hormone, which is why men often have thinning hairline. In addition, nettle extract regulates the work of sebaceous glands, which makes the hair less oily.

Other herbs.

– Chamomile has anti-inflammatory properties, thanks to which it soothes skin irritations. An infusion of this herb will also soothe itchy scalp. Thanks to it, the hair is not only strengthened and elastic, but also brightened.
– Lavender refreshes the hair, controls the production of sebum, stimulates circulation, and also has a bactericidal effect.
– Ginseng has been used in Asia for thousands of years to improve circulation and regulate cellular metabolism. The use of this perennial for the preparation of shampoo will contribute to the nourishment and strengthening of the hair. It is a good remedy for hair growth, especially in women.
– Ginkgo biloba contributes to the improvement of circulation, thanks to which more nutrients are delivered to the hair follicles, which stimulates hair growth.
- As a result of treatment with alfalfa, hair loss is stopped and hair grows faster, because this plant strengthens the bulbs.
– Fenugreek seeds also have beneficial properties in combating dandruff and hair loss.

People who want to stop increased hair loss should use Pokrupol fluid, containing plant extracts that have been used for generations to improve the condition of the hairstyle, i.e. horsetail, rosemary, birch and nettle. The use of natural, herbal active substances contained in these extracts allows it to be used for weakened hair.
