In grocery stores and hair solutions centers, I often see those shampoo, conditioner and hair treatment to help solve thinning of hair. Question, are they really effective? Main causes of hair loss are genetics, extreme illness (e.g. thyroid glands not working properly or effect of chemotherapy), stress, starvation, fungal infection and scalp damages (e.g. caused by bleaching, perming, etc.) which have not been taken care of for long.
These lead to excessive hair fall, reclining of the hair line, thinning of hair and ultimately bald spots and full baldness. In this article, you will learn how ashitaba leaves or “tomorrow leaves” help to prevent hair problems.
What accounts for hair loss and hair growth?
It’s perfectly normal if you are losing like 50 to 100 hair strands a day. My mom always scolds me whenever she sees hair on the floor. I even have blogged about it and you may read the post here. Point is that you will inevitably see your hair around you—in your brush or comb, in the shower or bathroom floor, and on your clothes. This is because our cells die and grow every day. So to provide new room for the new hair strands to grow, the older hair strands fall out.
However, for some people, only a few strands of hair replace the old one. Hair for them does not start growing as fast, and this accounts to the thinning of hair. Worse is when fewer hairs grow all over the scalp and they lose hair in spots that will be called and seen as “bald spots.”
If you already have bald spots (either at the top of your head or below near the back of the neck), then it may not be easy to treat and grow your hair on that spot all over again. But if you see that you’re just starting to have bald spots (hair gets thinner at certain areas), you still stand a chance!
What Ashitaba Can Do For Your Hair
Ashitaba or tomorrows leaf somehow is magical because the plant produces at least a leaf every day. When you take one out today, you will see another one blossomed and ready for harvest the next day. Can you relate the same pattern to your scalp?
Sure, you can!
Ashitaba has fast regeneration properties and its sap can be used as a tonic for thinning hair.
Ashitaba moisturizes and lubricates your scalp, promoting natural hair growth that result to shiny, fuller and stronger hair. You can try it as a green drink for it has no caffeine and low amount of calories. When you drink one cup of ashitaba per day which is about 1.5 grams, your scalp will be healthier thereby enhancing hair reborn. When you already are seeing symptoms of thinning hair and other hair problems, you should take about two to three cups daily to help remedy your problem at once.
There can be so many products in the market advocating for the same thing. But with ashitaba, we have already seen the effects in our old (elderly) friends who have tried taking this healthy drink. And the effects are simply amazing!
