Dear Rahul,

Alopecia Areata is really a heart breaking condition. However, it can be treated with herbal remedies. Herbs are useful in nourishing the Hair follicles, improving hair growth and countering alopecia areata. Try any of the following methods.

1) Essential Oils help to reduce hair fall and stimulate the blood circulation to the scalp. This helps to regrow new hair.
Take Lavender essential Oil or Jojoba Essential Oil. Mix any Carrier Oil like Coconut Oil. Apply this Oil blend onto the scalp. Gently massage for 10 to 15 minutes. Repeat this twice daily.
Note : The quantity of oils depends upon the length of your hair.

2) Onion is one of the best remedy for Alopecia Areata. It is high in Sulfur which stimulates the hair follicles for new hair growth. Apply fresh Onion juice directly on the scalp. Gently massage for 8 to 10 minutes. Leave it for an hour. Wash off. Repeat this twice a day for a month to see visible results.

I lost some hairs on beard which is appearing like a patch with no hair.. But now I am seeing very small white hair which are not getting big..
Any suggestions please..
30 Mar 2016
Dear Patel
It might be due to some kind of infection. You should try Gooseberry. Eat fresh Gooseberry fruit or take some juice. Second thing you should do is, Boil a few leaves of Neem in water and wash your face with that. If there is some possibility of infection, it will help to cure it.
Apply onion juice, it may help you.

Try Lavender Oil and dilute it with some other oil like Almond Oil. Massage gently on the affected area, it will improve the blood circulation and help in reversing the process of Hair fall. But you have to be patient and repeat the process 2 times in a week for at least 2 months.

Dear Sanjay
You may try Chili oil. You can make your own chili oil at home. Buy some fresh Red Pepper from the market. Take a pan and add some Olive oil to it. Turn on your stove and keep it on low heat. Add fresh chilies to the pan and let them cook for at least 1 hour on low heat. Wait until the chilies turn black. Take out chilies from the pan and store the oil in a bottle. Apply this oil for an hour and do some massage on the affected part. Do it on regular intervals. Like 3 to 4 times in a week. Use it for at least 2 months and see the results.
