Rosemary can counter hair loss by stimulating blood circulation in the scalp, which, in turn, promotes hair growth (1).Its high nutritional value and anti-inflammatory properties make it an excellent ingredient for nourishing the hair follicles and soothing the scalp. It also has analgesic properties that make it a good remedy for soothing inflamed scalps* (2).It is known to thicken hair and add shine, and is often used by people who have thin, lusterless hair (3).The oil from the herb helps clean the hair follicles by unclogging them.

The results found that the stinging nettle petroleum ether contains b-sitosterol as well as other constituents that can markedly inhibit 5a-reductase enzyme activity.
The researchers also showed that the stinging nettle may match the benefits of finasteride while avoiding all the undesirable side effects. Moradi et al established similar findings with nettles root. https://www.hairguard.com/stinging-nettle-for-hair-loss-results/
