What, if anything, have your mom's doctor/s said might help her reduce her hair loss, or help reduce further hair loss (Sometimes certain drugs can be slightly reduced w/the help of a doctor, if it's truly a side effect of one of the drugs and not a cause of the diabetes itself)? I assume she's also watching her sugar levels, eating properly, exercising if possible and regularly taking her meds? Would imagine henna/amla might improve the health of her hair. Your mom is so lucky to have a daughter who's willing to fuss over her hair - man if only my husband would agree to assist me w/applying henna/amla mix ... I have a TON of hair to work with. I asked him. I was like : and he was like

thank you sooo much! She has seen over 6 different dermatologist and still nothing works it seems like her doc is more concerned about maintaining her blood pressure (which isnt a bad thing) believe it or not it was alot worse, she had blisters and scabs all over her scalp it was disgusting! That persisted for 1 year she finally found a specialist who was able to treat that. Now its a matter of getting her hair to grow.

I did the amla/brahim powder treatment on her hair the other day and i like how her hair felt.
2 days later i did henna on my hair i added amla and brahim powder. It is amazing the results i got after just one treatment! My hair is SUPER SOFT, has little shedding i dont even see a reason to use my tangle teezer. For the first time i did finger detangling. it was no use to me bc of the amount of shedding i use to experience. I see a great relationship with henna in my future. I plan to do a treatment ever wash day which is 1x weekly for both my mom and i.

I'm so glad to hear that the initial results for you and your mum are good! I would like to suggest a slow build up of henna treatments rather than starting off doing them every week. It really can make your hair extra-coarse and dry if not given time to recover (admittedly I speak as someone who has dry, coarse hair already...).
Also, I wonder if your mummy's scalp/growth issues are due to the poor circulation diabetics have. If so, maybe very gentle scalp massages to stimulate blood flow might help. With a neutral oil to start with, then maybe with a more 'invigorating' oil (mustard? cayenne infused? rosemary?) once you are certain her scalp is strong.

Good luck with everything. I love my ayurvedia stuffs although it's been a couple months since I did anything! Brahmi is king, Amla is queen, Bhringraj is Superman.
