What is Ashwagandha and how does it benefit your hair?

You may have seen the ingredient Ashwagandha being mentioned in recent times, but did you know that it’s been used by Ayurvedic practitioners in India for thousands of years?  They used it to treat different ailments from increasing energy levels to reducing anxiety.  At Hush & Hush, we use it for its hair benefits in our DeeplyRooted supplement.  Let us explain how Ashwagandha can benefit your hair.

How does Ashwagandha benefit your hair?

It prevents hair loss.

If your hair is thinning or you’re experiencing hair loss or shedding, then the reason for this could be your stress hormone, cortisol.  For many people, high levels of stress can result in increased levels of cortisol.  This elevated stress level can also lead to hair thinning and hair loss. Ashwagandha is an adaptogen which encourages hormonal balance by strengthening the endocrine system.  It helps to regulate your cortisol levels, working to reduce stress in the body.  This in turn helps with any hair loss that’s a result of stress.

It strengthens your hair.

Ashwagandha is an adaptogen which helps to stimulate the production of DHEA, your natural antioxidant hormone.  An increased level of DHEA helps to fight free radicals, along with antioxidants and amino acids which strengthen your hair, promote healthy hair growth and minimise hair breakage.

It nourishes the scalp.

Ashwagandha is known to improve blood circulation to the scalp.  This improved blood circulation results in essential nutrients and collagen being delivered to your follicles in the scalp.  Reduced inflammation thanks to Ashwagandha can help relieve symptoms of dandruff, psoriasis, eczema and itchy scalp.

How can you add Ashwagandha into your daily routine?

Our clinically proven hair growth supplement, DeeplyRooted, contains Ashwagandha.  It benefits the hair by stopping stress-related hair loss and promotes the growth of new hair.  It’s a proven supplement which also contains other key vitamins, minerals, botanicals and patented ingredients to help prevent your hair from thinning, while promoting positive scalp health.  It also helps your hair to grow thicker, longer, stronger and more voluminous.

With Ashwagandha, it’s important to take it consistently to get the maximum results and for it to fully benefit the hair.  Take four DeeplyRooted capsules daily, preferably with a meal.  The normal hair growth cycle can take upwards of 90 days or more to see the first new hairs.  How fast hair grows can vary from person to person, so be consistent with it!
