This esteemed herb contains vitamins and minerals that can improve hair growth and add shine to dull hair. It is also a natural moisturiser, making it ideal for the scalp to heal from skin ailments.
Saw Palmetto is commonly used as a natural remedy for addressing hair loss and promoting hair growth because it inhibits 5-alpha-reductase, an enzyme that converts testosterone into DHT. DHT is a hormone that can shrink hair follicles and shorten the hair growth cycle, resulting in hair loss especially in people with a genetic predisposition for pattern baldness. The use of Saw Palmetto may slow thinning and promote healthier, thicker hair.
