Is hair fall giving you a hard time, making you feel old and unseemly? While hair fall can be happening to you due to a number of reasons, from a bad diet to anxiety, there is only one way to take care of this problem with minimum side effect and ensuring long-lasting health and shine. Ayurveda, the prolific ancient science of holistic nurture and wellbeing has its elements of remedy for hair loss handpicked from nature.
Ayurveda explains hair fall in the terms of an imbalance in the three-fold dosha constitution, or the biochemical energies—vata, pitta, and kapha. Hair fall is identified as an outcome of pitta dominance in the body. Pitta, which is effective for regulating digestion and metabolism, when overrides the other two doshas, could lead to problems like excessive hair fall.
Ayurveda recognizes excessive consumption of caffeine through tea and coffee, complex food that is hard to digest and assimilate like- meat, fried and spicy fares, and unchecked alcohol, as detrimental for ones with pitta dominating mind-body structure.
Beside these dietary flaws, there are other factors accounting for pitta fault and consequent hair loss problem, such as hormonal imbalance, sleep deprivation, addiction, stress, diabetes, etc. One needs to be aware of this entire range of affecting factors when going through the holistic and intensive care of Ayurveda.
The remedial potions for the Ayurveda treatment for hair loss could be easily made at home, fresh and clean, and thus you can save a lot!
Bhringraj is a great exotic herb for stimulating hair growth and reversing balding. You can find many hair-stimulating tonics in the market that use Bhringraj oil as their base.
However, it is better to make a smooth paste of fresh Bhringraj leaves at home and apply thrice a week on the scalp, leaving it for 30 minutes tops, before rinsing off. You can also throw in other Ayurvedic components like Tulsi and Amla into the blend for better effect.
The role of Amla in Ayurvedic hair loss treatment is undeniable. As an effective component for blood purification and treatment of indigestion, this Ayurvedic wonder can remedy the problem from the roots when consumed internally. Besides oral consumption, Amla is recommended as a natural hair dye, and applied in a mix with Shikakai or Neem for an alopecia-ridden scalp, to promote a prompt hair growth.
Ritha or soap nuts can be your choice for natural shampoo if you are looking for a mild cleanser for weak and brittle hair. Without soaking out natural oils from your hair, Ritha is effective for a total scalp cleanse and improving the texture and volume of your hair.
Wash your hair with a lathery soap-nut solution for 10-15 minutes every day to get bouncy, silken hair.
The bark of Indian Winter Cherry or Ashwagandha is highly efficacious for hair re-growth. It can either be applied as a paste on the scalp, which is the common way or consumed with its powder mixed with milk.
Ashwagandha actually controls a hormone called cortisol in the body, oversecretion of which is responsible for hair loss. External application in the Ashwagandha hair loss therapy will boss circulation in the scalp, remedy dandruff, and promote a luxurious hair growth.
You can make a potent hair pack with equal portions of Ashwagandha powder and Amla Powder, mixed with water and keep it on for 30 minutes maximum. Do this once a week to see amazing changes happening.
Stay nourished, stay beautiful!
