Hi, Vandana

The reason behind your problem may be poor blood circulation. Before suggesting you any herb i would like to know that it is not the consequence of some other health disorders.
However, if the problem is due to poor blood circulation, then you may try the following methods.

Please extract the juice of Onion, Ginger and Garlic. Apply this juice twice a week. Onion juice is antibacterial and improves the Blood circulation and production of collagen. This promotes the hair growth.
Or you can try Onion Juice with one tablespoon of Honey also. You can either consume it orally or apply the mixture on your scalp.

Dear Sid
Follow the regimen.
1. Boil a few Neem ( Margosa ) leaves in water for 10 min. Wash your scalp with this. Do it 2 to 3 times in a week.
2. Apply virgin Coconut oil on your scalp. Use it daily for 2 months.
Once your dandruff goes away, apply Chili oil on your scalp and do gentle massage. Leave it for 1 hour and wash your scalp later. Apply this on regular basis for Hair Loss.

Dear Asha
I suggest you to try the following Herbs.
1. Take a handful of Neem Leaves and boil them in water for 10 min. Let the water cool and wash your head with this water 2 to 3 times in a week. Continue it for 1 month. It is good for any kind of infection.
2. Take some Castor Oil and Almond oil. Make sure you take pure or virgin oils only. Take 1 tablespoon each of them and mix them well. Massage your scalp with the oil for 10 to 20 min. It will nourish the Hair follicles.
3. Have 1 tablespoon of Aamla juice every morning on empty stomach.
Do these things for 1 month and see the results.
