April 20, 2024 4 min read

Can Ancient Wisdom Unlock Modern Hair Bliss? 

Yes, this is possible. In the era of beauty and wellness, Ayurveda stands as a beacon of ancient wisdom, offering a comprehensive approach to health and beauty. From balancing internal energies or doshas to promoting the overall health of the body, the principles of Ayurveda extend to hair care as well. By including Ayurvedic practices and principles in your routine haircare, you can promote healthier, longer, stronger, and more vibrant hair. 

Let’s discover the secrets of Ayurvedic practices in haircare routine.

 

Understanding the Doshas: The Ayurvedic Blueprint 

Doshas are the internal energies, which govern the body and create a balance between the body, mind, and soul. Generally, there are 3 types of Doshas and these doshas are made of five elements, which are - air, space, water, fire, and earth, and their imbalance can affect the body and cause diseases. They are -

  • Vatta Dosha - It is characterized by the air and space elements, the individual with this dosha tends to have dry, brittle hair and is prone to frizz and breakage. For removing this type of dosha, nourishment and moisturizing the scalp and hair are  essential.
  • Pitta Dosha - It is characterized by the fire and water elements, the individual with this dosha tends to have fine, thin hair, which is prone to premature graying, excess oil secretion, and scalp sensitivity. To remove this type of dosha, cooling and soothing treatments are essential to remove excess oil and promote hair health.
  • Kapha Dosha - It is characterized by the earth and water elements, the individual with this dosha tends to have oily hair and is prone to dandruff. To remove this type of dosha, stimulating and strengthening hair is essential to promote hair volume and stimulate hair growth.
  • Knowing and understanding your doshas can help you tailor your hair care routine to address specific concerns and achieve the required hair health.

     

    Incorporating Ayurvedic Herbs & Oils 

    Ancient herbs and oils have worked wonders in our lives. Scientific research has also shown that natural herbs have so many items built into them, which can help to cure diseases when used in the appropriate way and with the correct formulas. Some of the herbs and oils are -

  • Neem - Neem is rich in antifungal and antibacterial properties and helps treat dandruff and other scalp problems.
  • Amla - Known as Indian Gooseberry, Amla is rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants, promoting hair growth and preventing premature graying.
  • Coconut Oil - Also known as Wonder Oil, with its deeply moisturizing properties, it helps to prevent protein loss from hair and keeps hair shiny, soft, and nourished.
  • Bhringraja - Bhringaraja oil can strengthen the hair follicles, reduce hair fall, and promote healthy hair growth.
  • Nourishing From the Roots: Ayurvedic Haircare Practices 

    Ayurveda emphasizes a natural approach to haircare, focusing on gentle yet effective practices to nourish your scalp and hair follicles. Here are some of the practices to include in your routine-

  • Scalp-massage with Ayurvedic Oils - Scalp massage is the foundation component of the Ayurvedic haircare routines. Regular massaging with warm oil on the scalp can improve blood circulation, promote a relaxing and calming effect, and strengthen the hair follicles.
  • Cleaning the Hair: Regular shampooing can strip the natural oils from the scalp. Wash your hair with a mild sulfate-free shampoo 2-3 times a week for vatta and pitta dosha, and daily or alternate day for kapha dosha clean shampoo.
  • Conditioning with Nature’s Touch - Hair Mask with natural ingredients like honey, yogurt, and Ayurvedic herbs like Fenugreek, Brahmi, and Aloe vera provides deep conditioning properties to the hair and also promotes healthy hair growth.
  • Power of Herbs- Treat your hair with masks made with ayurvedic herbs like Maka, Bhringaraja, and Hibiscus, which can help to condition the hair, improve the hair texture, and boost its natural shine.
  • Balanced Diet - According to Ayurveda, the health of your hair implies and shows the overall health of the body. Consuming a balanced diet filled with fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and proteins nourishes the hair from within.
  • Mindful Sleep - Good and adequate sleep helps to revitalize and strengthen the hair follicles along with making your scalp and brain relaxed.
  • Mindful Lifestyle - In today's world, stress and anxiety can negatively affect hair health. Regular yoga, meditation, and deep breathing exercises can help reduce stress and promote healthy hair growth.
  • Some other tips -
    • Heat Reduction - Excessive heat can damage hair. Allow to air dry naturally whenever possible and use heat protective sprays only if heat management is required.
    • Silk or satin pillowcases - Using silk or satin pillowcases can help prevent friction, preventing more hair breakage.
    • Regular trimming - Split ends can reach the hair shaft, which can be damaged. Getting trimming done in every 6 to 8 weeks can help to promote healthy hair.

    Including these simple Ayurvedic practices in your daily hair care routine can help to promote healthier, stronger, and more vibrant hair and can also improve the age of the hair.

    Incorporating Ayurveda into your hair care routine empowers you to achieve healthy, shiny hair from roots. By understanding the doshas and following these natural practices, you can improve hair health, promote hair growth, and achieve a radiant glow. Remember, consistency is the key to all the benefits of Ayurveda! Embrace research! Ayurveda offers a holistic approach to not only beautiful hair but overall health. Enjoy the journey!
