Stinging Nettle Most male pattern baldness is caused by testosterone being converted into DHT. The Stinging Nettle has been found to have properties that stop testosterone from being converted into DHT; this is the hormone which is responsible for hair loss in many men and some women. This plant grows wild and in abundance in America. The Native Americans used it a lot which is why you don’t see too many Native Americans with hair loss problems or having to get hair transplants. Since it grows in the wild, they would just hand pick it, (of course paying attention to the stinging, because it has a spiny stem) and infuse it into oils to moisturize their hair. They would also brew it as a tea for drinking. Stinging Nettle has K, B, and C vitamins and it also has a lot of amino acids and iron. Amino acids help with protein formation in your body and the hair needs protein to grow strong and healthy. Vitamin B and C are also important for healthy hair.
Sedr: As Tavakoli explains to us, sedr is a special lotus powder made from the plant ziziphus—a spiny shrub hailing from the Buckthorn family. "You can mix sedr with some water to make it into a paste and leave it in your hair for about 20 minutes. It cleanses hair while also imparting shine, strengthening hair strands, and thickening your natural density," she says.
Henna: "In addition to sedr, henna is one of the most widely used ingredients for hair in the Middle East," says Tavakoli. "Many people associate henna with hair color, but it is commonly used in the Middle East as a conditioner or hair mask. It hydrates, detangles, and makes frizzy hair more manageable. Plus, it just gives hair a livelier and bouncier appearance."
Amla: Consider amla—aka Indian gooseberry—is the one wunderkind superfood berry you haven't yet heard of. Highly regarded in the scientific and medical fields as a nutritionally potent superfood with potential anti-cancer properties, amla also works wonders in your haircare routine, Ranavat tells us. (In fact, it's one of the mystical hero ingredients in Ranavat's cult-favorite Mighty Majesty Fortifying Hair Serum ($70)—we're obsessed and have been singing its praises). "Organic amla is an incredibly powerful superfood more people should know about since it has the highest natural content of vitamin C in any fruit or vegetable," she shares. "In fact, it actually has 10 times the vitamin C content of an orange."
Saffron: As one of the most expensive spices in the world, saffron is not only a quintessential component of Middle Eastern culinary cuisine, but it's also a notable ingredient in Persia's hair and beauty culture. "We often use saffron in homemade hair treatments to strengthen hair strands and even prevent hair loss," explains Tavakoli. "It's rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals, which made it the ideal ingredient to use in Joon's hero product, the Saffron Hair Elixir ($28). (Ed. note: As mentioned in our IBE roundup, the elixir is amazing, and if you don't have ultra-light strands—which are unfortunately prone to stainage—we recommend dousing your hair with the stuff ASAP. Also, the packaging is to die for.)
Saw Palmetto: This herb is indigenous to the Native lands, and it formed part of their nutritional diets and has very good medicinal value. The fruit Saw Palmetto is a scarlet red berry; they would dry it in the sun for days then grind it and infuse it into tinctures, teas and ointments which were applied to their hair to help strengthen it and prevent scaly scalp – dandruff. Saw Palmetto also has properties that suppress the hormone that causes baldness, so taking it orally and as a topical application is one of the ways the indigenous hair was kept so beautiful. Saw palmetto is a small plant which produces berries that are full of flavonoids, fatty acids, and sterols. It has shown to be effective in treating hormone-related hair loss.
Aloe Vera: is a great natural moisturizer that was used in every day Native life for protecting the hair and the body from the sun and other harsh weather conditions and keeping the hair soft and silky. This was one of the main ways that they used to keep indigenous hair healthy.

Ylang-ylang Essential Oil: While those with oily hair and skin would want to skip this one, ylang-ylang oil is ideal for those with dry scalps, as it can stimulate sebum production. As lack of enough oil and sebum causes hair to become dry and brittle, ylang-ylang can improve hair texture and reduce hair breakage.
Lavender Essential Oil: Lavender oil can speed up hair growth. Knowing that lavender oil has properties that can generate the growth of cells and reduce stress, researchers on one animal study found that this oil was able to generate faster hair growth.
