As we are gradually moving into autumn and soon the colder winter months, this is the time of year when we may notice extra hair fall in our shower and bathroom floor.
It is good to give a little extra TLC to our mane and scalp. The winter months tend to set-off dandruff, irritating the scalp and leading to even greater hair fall out than usual. Our Elixirs are ideal for the seasonal changes to protect, soothe and invigorate the scalp and maintain an optimally balanced micro-biome.
Besides good hair care, diet and lifestyle, homeopathy can be another way we can address some of the underlying causes of hair loss. If you haven’t read our women in wellness article on homeopathic and flower remedy alchemist Alexis Smart we suggest you check it out here.
