Hair & Skin

Ayurveda for hair and skin health

Hair and skin are much more than just sensory organs, they participate in metabolism, thermoregulation, and beauty. 

People with hair on their shoulders wear the last three to six years of life experience, illness, failure, and of course the good things.

What will you get during an Ayurvedic session with our doctor?

The starting point for Ayurvedic skin and hair health is the aspects of an individual’s lifestyle – diet, emotional balance, physical activity, sleeping habits, and many other factors  – which Ayurvedic doctors will list for a successful treatment process.

The health and radiance of hair and skin are considered a reflection of patient health. Ayurveda associates skin type and skin problems with three doshas. Doshas are the biological basis of energy in the human body. Through each of these three energies, certain processes in the body are performed and controlled.

Ayurvedic recommendations for hair and skin health:

  • For beautiful and healthy hair – wash your hair less, massage your scalp with oil at least once per week.
  • Avoid all chemical hair products, take Ayurvedic herbs that support hair health.
  • A balanced and nutritious diet,
  • Drink enough water 
  • Avoid any stress and practice yoga and meditation daily  – for your mental health
  •  Sleep well  – sleep is the phase when our body repairs tissues and rearranges systems. Go to bed before 22:00, because this is the time when energy is restored

What Causes Hair & Skin Issues?

According to Ayurveda, hair and skin issues stem from imbalances within the body’s doshas, primarily Pitta, Vata, and Kapha. Imbalances in these doshas can manifest in various ways, affecting the health and appearance of the skin and hair. Excessive Pitta dosha, often triggered by spicy or acidic foods, stress, and heat, can lead to skin inflammation, acne, rashes, and premature graying of hair. Vata imbalance, caused by factors like excessive dryness, stress, irregular routines, and inadequate nourishment, can result in dry, rough skin and brittle hair prone to breakage.

Ways to Prevent Hair & Skin Issues According to Ayurveda

Ayurveda offers holistic approaches to prevent hair and skin issues by maintaining doshic balance and overall well-being:

  1. Balanced Diet: Consume a diet that suits your dosha type. Emphasize fresh, whole foods, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats. Avoid excessive intake of spicy, fried, and processed foods.

  2. Hydration: Stay adequately hydrated to keep your skin and hair moisturized from within. Drinking warm water throughout the day is encouraged in Ayurveda.

  3. Scalp and Hair Care: Use natural, gentle hair care products suitable for your hair type and dosha. Regular scalp massages with herbal oils can nourish the hair and improve its strength and shine.

  4. Skincare Routine: Establish a skincare routine using natural ingredients suitable for your skin type. Gentle cleansing, moisturizing, and exfoliation tailored to your dosha can help maintain healthy skin.

  5. Stress Management: Practice stress-reducing activities like yoga, meditation, and deep breathing to minimize the impact of stress on skin and hair health.

How Ayurveda Can Help with Hair & Skin Issues?

Treatments encompass a blend of herbal remedies, dietary adjustments, lifestyle modifications, and customized skincare routines tailored to rebalance the doshas.
