There are different kinds of baldness which include pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia), cicatricial (scarring) alopecia, alopecia areata (patchy baldness), telogen effluvium and traction alopecia. Each of these types have different causes behind its occurrence. Several herbal remedies for hair loss are effective in putting thinning hair on the slow track. While these herbal remedies don't have as many studies backing up their effectiveness as prescription drugs, they don't have undesirable side effects either.

1. Oils of different kinds are the best dry damaged hair remedy. You can prepare a mixture of oils like castor oil, olive oil, almond oil and coconut oil, apply it to the hair and scalp and leave it on for a few hours, before rinsing it. These oils will provide the required nourishment and moisture to the dry and damaged hair, and will also promote healthy hair growth. 

2. From a Naturopath's perspective, Saw Palmetto is a potent remedy for male pattern balding. It is considered anti-androgenic, and stops hair loss by blocking DHT (a hair follicle killing hormone). Stinging Nettles and Green tea are reported to have a similar, but milder effect on blocking DHT. Another suggested remedy for increasing circulation in the scalp is to drink horsetail tea for its rich silica content.
