Fact: Hair fall or thinning is part of our hair growth cycle. Studies suggest that it’s completely normal to lose around 50 to 100 strands of hair every day. While you can’t really keep track and count the strands from time to time, hair fall should be a matter of concern when excess shedding occurs and you begin to notice your hair part becoming wider than the usual.

Several factors contribute to hair fall. These can be part of genetics or caused by triggers like stress, vitamin deficiency, harsh hair products, and excess hair styling. Women, in particular, experience hair fall due to hormonal changes during pregnancy and menopause.

Good news is hair fall can be lessened by using this natural hair care ingredient: gugo. The use of gugo bark extracts has been traditionally proven to help nourish the scalp and thicken the hair. Gugo bark is rich in saponin, an active ingredient in charge of cleansing the hair and stimulating hair regrowth. When it comes to DIY gugo shampoos, the bark sheets are usually soaked and rubbed in water until they create a lather to clean and wash your hair. But if you prefer readily-made gugo shampoos (with more natural ingredients!), you are in luck since local brands are emerging to promote gugo shampoo as a natural remedy to hair fall problems. Here are some of the products you might want to check out:
