Oct 09, 2017: If you are in stress these days due to continuous hair fall, you will get effective treatment in Ayurveda. There are many Ayurvedic herbs that can be used to reduce problems of hair loss.
Five easy ayurvedic home remedies for hair fall
Bhringraj is believed to be of great importance in Ayurveda for strong and dense hair. Bhrigraj oil not only fights baldness but also premature grey hair.
Making a pack of Brahmi and Yoghurt and applying on the hair will reduce hair loss. On regular massage from Brahmi oil, hair grows voluminous.
Vitamin C and antioxidants in Amla are rich in abundance which helps in growing hair. Make a pack by mixing Amla with Hina, Brahmi Powder, and Yoghurt and apply on the hair.
The use of reetha helps in keeping hair black and dense.
Neem is not only used to make hair thick but also to reduce problems like dandruff and lice. Make neem powder and massage it by adding curd or coconut oil to the root of the hair.
Researchers have deciphered a new gene responsible for a rare form of genetic hair loss condition.
Hypotrichosis simplex occurs without other abnormalities. In infancy, fine hair tends to sprout sparsely. With increasing age, hair loss progresses. Ultimately, only a few hair is left on the head and body.
A team of researchers from the University Hospital of Bonn found that changes in the lanosterol synthase (LSS) gene lead to impairment of an important enzyme that has a crucial function in cholesterol metabolism.
However, the cholesterol blood values of those affected are not changed, the finsings showed.
“There is an alternative metabolic pathway for cholesterol, which plays an important role in the hair follicle and is not related to blood cholesterol levels,” said Regina C. Betz from the University’s Institute of Human Genetics.
For the study, reported in the American Journal of Human Genetics, the team examined the coding genes of three families that are not related to each other and are of different ancestry.
A total of eight relatives showed the typical symptoms of hair loss and had mutations in the LSS gene.
Using tissue samples, the scientists tried to find out exactly where the LSS is located in the hair follicle cells. The hair roots are formed in the follicle.
If the LSS gene is not mutated, the associated enzyme is located in a system of very fine channels in the follicle cells, the endoplasmic reticulum.
If a mutation is present, the lanosterol synthase also spreads outside these channels into the adjacent substance, the cytosol, the scientists observed.
“We are not yet able to say why the hair is falling out,” said lead author Maria-Teresa Romano, a doctoral student from the varsity.
“It is likely that the displacement of LSS from the endoplasmic reticulum results in a malfunction.”
