Natural hair care..

It has been observed that natural hair care products derived from plants and herb extracts improve the blood circulation in the scalp and stimulate the growth of hair follicles.

Sources of natural hair stimulants
Experimental studies show that the extracts from grape seeds increase the production of cells in the hair follicle. It has also been observed that the grape extracts affect the hair growth cycle in a significant way. Grape seed extracts stimulate healthy hair growth by defeating the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) that stops the hair follicle growth cycle.
Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis) is a natural hair care product used for treating alopecia. Aloe Vera contains Aloenin, a potent stimulant which promotes rapid hair growth without any irritation in the scalp.
Ginkgo biloba leaf extracts act as good tonic for hair growth. They help to increase and maintain peripheral microcapillary circulation, ultimately improving or maintaining hair growth. The hair growth is stimulated through combined effects on proliferation and apoptosis (cell death) of the cells in the hair follicle.leaf extracts act as good tonic for hair growth.
