A disease in which there are well defined bald spots on the head and other hairy parts of the body.

Herbal Aids

Bayberry: Use a strong decoction of bayberry and rub in well at night; wash off in the morning, brush the hair thoroughly and apply again (using a few drops of lavender oil with the solution that is rubbed in gives a more effective synergistic action).

This will quickly help stop falling hair and remove dandruff. You can also use a tea of guava leaves daily in drinking and also in washing of the hair.

Juniper: Used externally, a tincture of the branches is used as a rub for some skin conditions and to combat alopecia.

Echinacea: Cases of goiter, impetigo contagiosa, local infection, urethral infection, diabetic ulcers, alopecia (baldness), and so on, are reported to have been effectively treated with Echinacea. Drink the tea freely.
