The Best Herbs for Hair

  1. Sage

Let’s start with sage – one of the most famous herbs for hair (even since ancient times) as it promotes health and beauty. In particular, it stands out for the uniqueness of its taste and at the same time is widely used in herbal remedies and cosmetics. This is due to its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant properties!

How sage supports the health of our hair:

  • Firstly, it helps in the growth of new hair and reduces hair loss
  • It treats dandruff.
  • In addition, it soothes itchy and irritated skin
  • It regulates oily skin
  • Finally, it gives shine and softness


Uses of Sage for Hair

We recommend using sage extract after shampooing as a final “rinse” 1 to 2 times a week. Furthermore, you can use sage oil on the roots and ends of your hair (always properly diluted) to tone and shine dry and sensitive hair with a tendency to thinning. And the best part? It improves the colour of grey hair and nourishes damaged ends.

The life cycle of hair

Did you know that our hair is constantly in a process of renewal? Specifically, during the hair life cycle, a process that we see several times during a human lifetime, there are three main phases:

  • The growth phase, during which our hair grows and develops. This phase lasts about 3 years in men and about 5 in women.
  • The transitional phase, during which hair growth stops temporarily. This phase lasts about 2 to 3 weeks.
  • Finally, the fall phase, during which our hair falls out. This phase lasts for about 3 months.

Although hairs follow the same life cycle, the hair follicles are independent of each other. This means that not all hairs fall out at the same time. At the same time, by understanding this life cycle of hair, we understand that it is normal to lose up to 100 hairs every day.


Finally, natural herbal hair treatments are a reliable option for improving the health of our hair. With sage, chamomile, lemon balm, peppermint and rosemary standing out thanks to their beneficial properties, we ensure rejuvenation and care for the scalp. So, which natural treatments do you know and use to give your hair vitality?
