But it's not just the change in season that causes this tendance of thinning hair. It affects many people and there are numerous reasons why our brushes seem to accumulate more and more hair during certain periods. The good news is that there are natural remedies thanks to different natural ingredients found in organic cosmetics.


What Do We Mean by "Hair Loss"?


Is Hair Loss Normal?

For most people, the answer is yes. We lose between 50 and 100 hairs per day. However, if we notice a significantly higher amount or if the loss occurs suddenly, you should consult a healthcare professional. In this article, we are talking about hair loss that results in just slightly thinner hair than usual.


Reasons for Why We Lose Our Hair

As previously mentioned, seasonal changes can be a factor in hair loss, as can:

  • Periods of stress
  • Nutritional deficiencies (iron, zinc, vitamins D, C, etc.)
  • Poor hair care habits
  • Hormonal changes or postpartum
  • And many others...

When talking about hair loss, we often also hear about a condition called androgenetic alopecia, also known as baldness or the famous "receding hairline". This condition, which is hereditary and hormonal, mainly affects men but can also occur in women. The difference between this type of hair loss and the hair loss discussed in this article is that androgenetic alopecia is usually irreversible.

Here, in this article, we give you tips for dealing with temporary hair loss.


Which Plants and Natural Active Ingredients Should Be Used to Reduce Hair Loss?


When looking for a hair product to help reduce hair loss, one should opt for natural active ingredients! Whether it's a shampoo, mask, serum, or scalp lotion, organic hair products harness the superpowers of plants to strengthen hair starting at he roots. But that's not all! There are also plants and extracts that promote hair growth.

We've put together a non-exhaustive list of plants and their forms of use as ingredients or cosmetics. What matters is to test the active ingredients and find the routine that suits you best.

Note that there is no instant solution! It's about adopting good habits and implementing long term hair routines.


Nettle or Stinging Nettle


The name may not be the most reassuring but this plant is nontheless a great ally for hair loss! Rich in vitamins, trace elements, and minerals, stinging nettle strengthens the hair fiber from the roots and stimulates growth. It regulates sebum production, which can help prevent hair loss due to excess oil. Stinging nettle also cleanses the scalp and fights dandruff, creating an environment conducive to hair growth.

You can benefit from the properties of stinging nettle:

  • as a powder or oil for a mask
  • as an organic dietary supplement

Exceptionally rich in proteins, spirulina promotes the synthesis of keratin to strengthen hair. It contains B-group vitamins such as B3, B6, B8, and B12, as well as minerals like zinc and iron. This plant is also an antioxidant.


How to Use Spirulina?

The most common way is certainly as a dietary supplement, but you can also use spirulina powder to make a hair mask.

If your hair loss is potentially linked to dietary deficiencies, take spirulina as a dietary supplement to make the most of its high iron and zinc content. 💪

Rosemary is a plant rich in nutrients such as antioxidants, fatty acids, and vitamins (like B2 and B9). This plant is known for its anti-inflammatory effects. Improved blood circulation at the scalp level helps stimulate hair growth, strengthen it, and revitalize it.

  • As an essential oil integrated into a mask or shampoo
