108. Unraveling the Mysteries of Hair Loss: Can Herbal Remedies Revive Hair Growth?

Updated: Apr 9

Hair loss, a common concern for both men and women, can be a distressing experience. While there are various causes of hair loss, understanding the underlying factors is crucial for determining the most effective treatment approach.


Common Causes of Hair Loss


Hair loss can be attributed to a variety of factors, including:


Genetics: Androgenetic alopecia, commonly known as male pattern baldness or female pattern hair loss, is the most prevalent form of hair loss, affecting both men and women. It is primarily driven by genetic predisposition and hormonal changes. Both your mother and father need to have the gene. If your mom doesn't, this syndrome won't affect you.

Stress: Chronic stress can contribute to hair loss, often causing temporary shedding or thinning. When the body is under constant stress, it redirects resources away from non-essential functions like hair growth.

Nutritional Deficiencies: Certain nutritional deficiencies, such as a lack of iron, vitamin B12, or biotin, can disrupt hair growth cycles and lead to hair loss. Maintaining a balanced diet rich in essential nutrients is crucial for healthy hair growth.

Medical Conditions: Underlying medical conditions, such as thyroid disorders, autoimmune diseases, or scalp infections, can also contribute to hair loss. Addressing the underlying condition is essential for hair regrowth.

Harsh Hair Treatments: Excessive use of chemical hair treatments, heat styling tools, or tight hairstyles can damage hair follicles and lead to hair loss. Gentle hair care practices can help protect hair health.

The Microbiome: Our gut and skin - including our hair follicles are covered with microorganisms. These microorganisms have a huge effect on our health, including the health of our skin and hair.


Exploring Herbal Remedies for Hair Regrowth


While there are various medical treatments for hair loss, herbal remedies have gained popularity as natural alternatives. Herbs have been shown to be effective in promoting hair growth and reducing hair loss.

1. Comb Again Hair Loss Serum: This is made from a combination of herbs that stimulate Hair Growth and decrease Inflammation. We’ve been selling this product with great success since someone first requested an alternative to Rogaine in 2017. 


I never expected I would have to use Comb Again myself and was shocked and distressed when most of my hair fell out. It happened after a bout of severe food poisoning that lasted for weeks. Three months later, most of my hair fell out. Baffled by this development, I went to a Dermatologist, who suggested I start on Rogaine. In the same breath, she also told me that my hair would fall out again when I stopped using the Rogaine.

Needless to say, I knew where I would turn from all the people who had experienced successful hair growth using my Herbal formula, Comb Again. Three months later, my hair had completely grown back.  And... it didn’t fall out when I stopped using Comb Again. See my before and after video on Spiral Herbal Remedies’s website. You can also watch my hair growth progress as you scroll back through my Instagram posts hereWhile you're at it, follow Spiral Herbal Remedies for more information on our herbal insights and products! :))

        2. Chai Chai Chai  Our Organic Chai is a blend of plants that contain powerful antioxidants that can protect hair follicles from damage and promote hair growth. They also have anti-inflammatory properties that can support scalp health. These plants also aid digestion and can help lower Cholesterol and blood sugar. Instead of the traditional Black tea, we use Green Tea, which is great for alertness but has a calming effect instead of causing jitters.

      3. Fungal Salve The product is called Athlete's Tootsies but this salve can be used for any fungal skin infection, including Tinea Capitis, the infection of the scalp that causes Hair Loss. This salve is made from plants that contain anti-fungal properties. Apply it directly to infected skin such as Tinea Capitis, Ringworm (it's not a worm, it's a fungus) Jock Itch, and Athlete's Foot.     

4. Our Reishi blends have properties used traditionally for balancing the immune system and helping with autoimmune disorders - a condition where the body mistakes its own cells for something foreign and attacks those cells.

Also, If you're experiencing long-term fungal infections on your scalp, you might consider some immune support. Check out our Reishi Blends. These dual-extracted medicinal mushrooms can help balance your immune system. There are 3 different blends, Reishi with Chaga, Lion's Mane or Turkey Tail, look at each and see which suits you best.

5. We have several suggestions for stress management: 

      a. Organic, lab-tested CBD Oil is my personal favorite. CBD binds with receptors in our Nervous and Immune systems, calming nerves and decreasing inflammation. In addition to stress, CBD is also helpful for Depression, Pain, Sleep and is a powerful Antioxidant.  Our CBD is very concentrated and contains no THC, so it can be taken during the day without drowsiness.

      b. Organic Ashwagandha Tincture is another calming suggestion. An adaptogenic plant, Ashwagandha works by modulating Cortisol levels (your fight or flight hormone) and can be very calming. It is also a Reproductive Tonic and can increase testosterone in men and estrogen in women. It has a long history of use for Enhanced Cognition and has been used for memory, mental clarity, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s. It can also lower blood sugar and is an antioxidant.

        c. Organic Passionflower Tincture - This flower has been used by Indigenous cultures in the Amazon for millennia. It can increase GABA, a neurotransmitter naturally produced in our bodies, that has a calming effect on the nervous system. This plant can also be sedating and is helpful for sleep.


     6. For Nutritional Support, since sometimes maintaining a healthy diet isn't always easy, our Vite-Achoo Tea contains all essential micronutrients, except B12. Add more B12 to your diet with animal protein. If you're Vegan, Nutritional Yeast is a good source and, is available in our shop.

7. For a healthy Microbiome read blog post #94 on our website for information about its effect on our immune system, and how a healthy microbiome can prevent the overgrowth of problematic microorganisms such as fungi.


Hair loss can be a complex issue with multiple contributing factors. While herbal remedies offer a natural approach to hair regrowth, it is essential to consult with a healthcare provider to determine the underlying cause of hair loss and discuss options. Combining herbal remedies with a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and stress management techniques, can support hair growth and overall well-being. Remember, patience and consistency are key when exploring options for hair regrowth.
