Why these ingredients will prevent hair loss!


Hair loss is a constant problem with many men and women. Many try professional shampoos and take expensive treatments for the same. While that may work for most of the people, there are some problems that can be solved through natural remedies. Here are some ingredients to help you out!

Lemon juice (Citrus limonum)
Natural exfoliant
Lemon is an excellent source of alpha hydroxyl acid which acts as a natural exfoliating agent, promoting cell renewal on the scalp. This helps clear the follicles of excess build-up of dead cells, allowing more room for thicker hair growth.

Rich in Anti-Oxidants
Oxidative stress is one of the prime reasons for hair fall. Free radicals produced in the body through various stresses cause oxidative stress. Eriocitrin, hesperidin and coumarin found in lemon extract act as natural antioxidants which lower the oxidative stress by scavenging on these free radicals.

Balances pH
The natural pH of the scalp is slightly acidic, so the acidic nature of lemon, ensures that hair proteins are kept hard and more resistant to breakage.

Green gram (Vigna radiate)
Promotes hair growth
Protein helps in cell building and growth

Rich in Anti-Oxidants
Oxidative stress is one of the prime reason for hair fall. Free radicals produced in body through various stresses cause oxidative stress. Anti-oxidants present in green gram such as vitamin B1 and vitamin E control oxidative stress by scavenging on free radicals

Curry leaves (Murraya koenigii)
Rich in Anti-Oxidants
Promotes hair growth by decreasing the oxidative stress.
Improves blood circulation
The extracts from curry leaves improve blood supplies to the follicles increasing the duration of the Anagen phase. This results in an increased Anagen to Telogen ratio.
Hence effectively reducing the shedding of hair.

Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum)
Promotes hair growth and cell building.
Fenugreek seeds are an excellent source of protein with around 30% of seed weight composed of amino acids like 4-hydroxyisoleucine, arginine, lysine and histidine. Therefore it is extremely good for hair growth both in terms of length and density

Rich in Anti-Oxidants
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) or free radicals are produced within the body due to oxidative stress. They accelerate the ageing as well as cause tissue injury. The antioxidant compounds present in fenugreek function as free radical scavengers reducing the oxidative stress causing the hair loss.

Improves blood circulation
Trigonella promotes hair growth by improving blood flow to the scalp either by stimulating the scalp or by angiogenesis, formation of new blood vessels from pre-existing vessels.

Furthermore the improved supply of blood to the follicle increases the Anagen phase of hair growth and also improves the rate of hair growth.
