Bowel movement problems or constipation may actually cause hair loss. Although not directly responsible for it, constipation signals problems with digestion which affect the growth of hair directly. Bowel movement problems signify a lack of balance between the various doshas within the body. Triphala is a very effective Ayurvedic medication that you can take to resolve problems connected to bowl movement, which would in turn reduce hair loss and encourage its growth.

Excess consumption of tea and coffee is in fact known to be very detrimental for the health of hair, especially according to Ayurveda. Tea and coffee are known to aggravate Pitta dosha, which causes hair loss. Apart from tea and coffee, smoking or consumption of meats can also cause hair loss. Hair loss caused by bad dietary and lifestyle choices like these can be effectively countered by taking a spoonful of sesame seeds every morning.
Stress is one of the major reason for hair loss.
3 of 5
A high level of stress in our modern lifestyle is not uncommon and like all the other systems within the body, it affects hair too. Stress causes the overproduction of the hormone cortisol from the adrenal glands. Cortisol, in turn, causes hair loss and slows down the growth of hair. One of the best remedies for stress related hair loss is the herb Ashwagandha . When applied on the scalp, it helps increase antioxidants, reduce cortisol and produces melanin which is required for the growth of new hair.

Thus it doesn t contain the harmful chemicals that can damage your hair, yet has all the natural ingredients required for its nutrition.

Neem is a wonder drug used in many Ayurvedic preparations, especially the ones used to treat skin problems. It has many beneficial properties and one of them is the effective treatment of hair loss caused due to a dry scalp. Neem can effectively combat dandruff, psoriasis and other hair fall problems by increasing blood circulation in the scalp. All of these disorders damage the hair roots which result in hair fall. Applying a paste of Neem can help combat these, encourage the growth of new hair and also strengthen the existing follicles on the scalp.
