Split ends from the point of view of Ayurveda
A split end is a type of hair damage that occurs when a single hair splits into two at the bottom of a strand. Pollution, dry hot air, the use of harmful chemicals, and poor nutrition are some of the factors that cause split ends. Hair must be neither too dry nor too oily to be healthy — dryness causes hair follicle splitting. Severe lesions occur when one hair fiber is more damaged than the others, causing several “branches” of cortical cells to separate. Curly hair has this issue where the curl has tangled and caused a knot. According to scientists, there are an infinite number of split end combinations that point to their origin — hair splits are classified as the initial stage, extensive lesions, and minor lesions. According to Ayurveda, split ends may be caused by Vata dosha imbalances in the hair.
How Ayurvedic doctors treat split ends
Today, Ayurveda provides sufficient natural hair care products: shampoos, masks, oils. Ayurvedic remedies are completely natural and do not cause any other health problems, unlike chemical products.
However, because Ayurveda is based on the belief that medicine should be tailored to each body type, it is critical to never self-medicate.
