First, let’s understand what Alopecia is: Alopecia, the medical term for hair loss, traces its origin to the Greek word alōpekía, which refers to mange, a skin condition in foxes. Alopecia Areata is a unique form of hair loss, which differs between men and women to a certain extent. As an autoimmune disease, the body’s immune system mistakes it’s own tissues to be foreign entities and attacks them.

This condition is way more common that it should be but the good news is that it can be effectively managed through the Ayurvedic system of medicine. Bhringraj: An excellent herb also referred to as the ‘King of Hair.’ It not only controls hair fall and prevents premature graying but also boosts new hair growth. You can make a paste from the leaves of this plant and apply it on your hair by way of a mask. Make sure to keep it on for an hour and then wash it off. You can even use pure Bhringraj oil to massage your hair in circular motions, daily. Amla: The vitamins and antioxidants of this fruit help keep your hair healthy and soft while preventing premature graying. While amla oil is a great way to keep your hair nourished from the roots, a mask made of amla, henna and yogurt can be applied to your hair for one hour once a week for best results. Aloe Vera: Aloe Vera not only helps prevent hair loss but also helps treat scalp issues. This is because of the proteolytic enzymes which it contains that repair dead skin cells on the scalp.
