Henna is an herb from India that is known for its coloring and health benefits. Henna can be used as a conditioner for the hair and can help with split ends and breaking. However, like any other conditioner, it will not fix hair loss that is caused by damage to the hair follicle or that is genetic. Some think that the anti-fungal properties of Henna may help with fungal infections of the scalp that can cause hair loss, but this is not scientifically proven. If you think that you are experiencing hair loss due to a fungus you should consult with your physician first before starting any treatment.
Conditioning with Henna may help your hair look healthy, but it won’t prevent most types of hair loss, nor would it help regrow your hair. If you think you are experiencing hair loss, see your Trichologist.
