Stinging Nettle (Urtica dioica) is an edible herb that has a rich herbal legacy. It has been used as a medicinal herb since medieval times in Europe. Nettle has been extensively used to treat certain skin conditions like eczema and acne. Studies also show that nettle is an excellent herb to prevent hair loss. It can help reduce DHT (a major cause of male and female pattern baldness).  

The silica and pantothenic acid in nettle strengthens the hair. Nettle also increases the circulation of blood in the scalp, thus ensuring nutrient-rich blood flows to each hair follicle, which strengthens them and promotes healthy, long, and luscious hair.
