The Anti-inflammatory Stinging Nettle for your scalp
Did you know? Chronic inflammation of the scalp can be an underlying factor in hair loss. Many people are not even aware of the damage of an inflamed scalp because they don't know there is a problem.
Dandruff and flakes sensitivity during styling, and even a scalp that feels slightly warm to the touch can all be signs that your scalp is inflamed.
Chronic inflammation can cause the cells in your scalp to activate a self-destructive mechanism. It can cause significant damage to the hair strands and the follicles.
Scalp conditions such as seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema and folliculitus are all symptoms of chronic inflammation.
Inflammation can often be remedied by reducing inflammatory foods in our diet. You can also soothe itching scalp topically with the wonders of stinging nettle - a tall edible plant native to Europe and North America. Don't worry, only its raw sharp-edged leaves have a 'stinging' effect.
STINGING NETTLE: Boasting a long rich history in medicine, this organic alcohol-free extract is rich in vitamins, minerals (magnesium, potassium, calcium, iron), proteins, and amino acids which helps combat hair loss while promoting hair regrowth.
Best known for its soothing, anti-inflammatory ability, stinging nettle works to protect the scalp cells from damaging foreign particles such as free radicals, DHT and bacteria.
Stinging nettle root doesn’t just help ease inflammation. It has different ways to fight hair loss. It can also help inhibit the production and release of a hormone that can cause hair loss.
