Nettle Prevents hair loss 

You may have just dis­cov­ered it, but the net­tle is an ancient rem­e­dy for treat­ing hair loss. The leaves have anti-inflam­ma­to­ry prop­er­ties to reduce inflam­ma­tion of the scalp and pro­mote healthy head hair.

The net­tle root is also called net­tle and com­mon net­tle; it is a good herbal treat­ment option for hair loss. But there is real­ly no sci­en­tif­ic evi­dence to sup­port claims that it can pre­vent hair loss or pro­mote hair growth. However, the use does not cause any real harm unless the per­son takes spe­cial med­ica­tion.

The plant has been around for cen­turies and is used to treat var­i­ous dis­eases. The net­tle orig­i­nates in Asia and Northern Europe, but is now found in dif­fer­ent parts of the world. The net­tle plant has thin hair on the stem and leaves, which sting on touch and give it its name. The root is often used to treat prostate prob­lems.

To pro­duce healthy hair, your hair fol­li­cles rely on min­er­als, vit­a­mins and oth­er bioac­tive com­pounds. The net­tle for hair growth is an effec­tive rem­e­dy as it con­tains phy­tonu­tri­ents, min­er­als and vit­a­mins, which make it a ben­e­fi­cial treat­ment for your hair loss.

Why do we lose our hair?

There are numer­ous rea­sons why peo­ple suf­fer hair loss. One of the more com­mon rea­sons is due to dihy­drotestos­terone, a real tongue-break­er, so let’s stick to DHT. Testosterone is con­vert­ed into DHT, which then attach­es itself to the hair fol­li­cles and pre­vents the nutri­ents from reach­ing the fol­li­cles to feed them. The result is a short­ened lifes­pan of the hair fol­li­cles, which caus­es the hair to fail faster than it should nor­mal­ly fall. DHT can also cause hair fol­li­cles to shrink, mak­ing the hair thin­ner and fin­er, mak­ing it break eas­i­ly.

Hair loss is also attrib­uted to oth­er fac­tors such as aging, thy­roid, stress, fun­gal infec­tions, dia­betes, cer­tain med­ica­tions and preg­nan­cy. Hormonal changes can also cause hair loss.

How does the nettle root help with hair loss?

It is thought that the net­tle root has the nec­es­sary prop­er­ties to block and sup­press the con­ver­sion of testos­terone into DHT. Blocking DHT pro­duc­tion means a reduc­tion in hair loss. There are no stud­ies to prove the effec­tive­ness of this herb.

The net­tle root is avail­able in var­i­ous forms, includ­ing: dry extract, liq­uid extract, dried root and root tinc­ture. Each type of net­tle root prepa­ra­tion must be tak­en in spe­cif­ic dos­es. There are var­i­ous sham­poos on the mar­ketthat con­tain the net­tle root.

As men­tioned above, the net­tle root works against your hair loss prob­lems. But even bet­ter is their abil­i­ty to help your hair grow back. Sulphur and sil­i­ca are present in the leaves of the net­tle in rich pro­por­tions. This will make your hair health­i­er and shinier.

A sim­ple appli­ca­tion of net­tle extracts for rins­ing the hair with water helps to regrow the hair and restores the nat­ur­al hair col­or.

The net­tle root also has the abil­i­ty to block DHT, a hor­mone that can be harm­ful to hair fol­li­cles when over­pro­duced. Studies show that net­tle extract can block the pro­duc­tion of DHT by reduc­ing the pro­duc­tion of the 5‑alpha reduc­tase enzyme.

You can use cap­sules with net­tle or even con­sume net­tle to treat your hair loss inter­nal­ly.

Nettles against dandruff

The active ingre­di­ents in the leaves of the net­tle help to reduce dan­druff, which is also anoth­er cause of hair loss. You need to extract the juice of fresh net­tle leaves by crush­ing them and mas­sag­ing them on the scalp to heal the dan­druff.

As an alter­na­tive, you can also sprin­kle the net­tle leaves with mus­tard or coconut oil and mas­sage the mix­ture into your scalp.

Side effects of nettle root

There are few side effects when tak­ing net­tle to treat hair loss. In this rare case, flu­id accu­mu­la­tionors or upset stom­achs may occur. People tak­ing blood-thin­ning med­ica­tions must con­sult a doc­tor before tak­ing the net­tle root, as it may have blood thin­ning prop­er­ties. Pregnant and nurs­ing moth­ers are advised not to per­form net­tle root treat­ments with­out con­sult­ing a doc­tor.
