When faced with hair loss or thinning, we usually do not know that there are natural and cheap remedies to solve these problems; one of such solutions is a very common medicinal herb growing in Lithuania. Horsetail is a plant that we often see in the garden as a weed, but not everyone knows that horsetail is a real medicinal plant, whose healing properties have been used by herbalists since ancient Greek times.
What does horsetail grass have in common with the most popular hair supplements? In both, one of the main components responsible for the effect is the mineral silicon. Studies with silicon have shown that it really helps with weakened hair – the use of silicon is associated with the growth of thicker and stronger hair, as it helps to supply the hair follicles (the structure of the skin from which the hair grows) and the scalp with the necessary nutrients. Silicon is also involved in the production of collagen, so the consumption of this mineral is also associated with a better condition of the skin and nails.

However, there are more differences than similarities between popular hair supplements and horsetail preparations; the biggest of them is the amount of substances we get from using these preparations. Unlike tablets and capsules, horseradish contains dozens of different active substances, which, acting together, provide a positive effect on health.
Another essential difference is that horsetail grass is a natural product that, unlike various capsules and tablets, does not contain any synthetic impurities or auxiliary substances. Ground horsetails grow all over Lithuania, so you can pick them and dry them yourself; even if you do not want to collect this herb yourself or do not distinguish it from others – horsetail herb can be purchased from herbalists, where this herb costs significantly less than any preparations for strengthening hair.
