Horsetail And Hair Thinning – This Is How It May Works
What is it?
Horsetail is an herb in the Equisetaceae family of plants, which have been used since ancient Greek and Roman times.
It was traditionally used as a medicinal herb to treat osteoporosis, tuberculosis, and kidney problems; it was also used as a diuretic (for relief of fluid retention) and to stop bleeding and heal wounds.
The main reason why the herb is believed to be able to stimulate hair growth is because of its antioxidant effects. Horsetail can also improve circulation, leading to the improvement of hair follicles and to help stimulate hair growth.
Because of its silica content, horsetail is also useful when trying to stimulate hair growth. The herb rejuvenates your hair, adding sheen to the appearance and strength to the hair shafts.
How to use?
Many shampoos, conditioners and hair growth aids contain horsetail extract. To create your own hair rinse:
2-4 teaspoons dried horsetail
Cup of boiled water
Add the horsetail to a cup of boiled water (still hot but not boiling). Let steep 15-20 minutes; strain; cool.
Rinse through hair and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse and style as usual.
You can also strain and drink this tea warm 2-3 times per day with honey.
Taking the tea internally is believed to help the hair, skin and nails the same way as applying topically.
