Fo ti Root is an anti-aging herb available in Chinese medicine.

It also got many other health property like anti-tumour, anti-pyretic, sedative, anti-progestational, anti-inflammatory, decreases blood coagulability, cardiotonic, hypotensive, vasodilatory in animal trials.

It also used for gray hair treatment widely.
Studies also proven in small human population. the effective rate was 88.9%.

Brief Answer:
Need exclusive treatment protocol

Detailed Answer:

Dear XXXXXXX

Thanks for your reply.
As your hair loss seems to be due to pollution and lifestyle.

As ayurveda insist proper diet, lifestyle (practicing yoga and meditation) along with recommended medication will help in treating hair loss.

Reduce junk, fired, caffeinated food items. Take more leafy vegetables and fruits. Add pomegranate,lime,fig in your food. Try to avoid refine sugar and refined oil and Maida.

Internal medication:
Amalaki rasayanam- 5g twice a day.
Bhiringaraja choornam- 2g twice a day.
Trichup capsules- 2 twice a day.

External Application:
Apply sesame oil to your hair as well as scalp frequently thrice in a week.
Trichup hair oil should be used daily.
Use herbal shampoos like shymala . Use XXXXXXX herbalpaste to cleanse your hair alternatively.
Avoid stress, stay away from pollution.

The above treatment protocol had been commonly prescribed in my practice and shows good results.
It depends on you to take decision to make it out. I didn’t have experience with the Fo ti root tonic. as much available medicine in Ayurveda for hair care.
