Dry Hair

Dry Hair from the point of view of Ayurveda

Dry hair is the result of inactive oil glands on the scalp. It is often accompanied by dry scalp, split ends, and hair loss. A variety of factors can lead to dry hair, including environmental conditions, hair care habits, and physical health. There are some common factors that affect the health of hair and can cause dry hair: dry, hot climate, spending a lot of time in the sun or wind, frequently swimming in chlorinated or salty water, regularly blow-drying your hair, using curling irons, straighteners, washing your hair too often. According to Ayurveda, an individual with a predominant or exacerbated Vata dosha is more prone to dry and unhealthy hair. In some cases, dry hair is the result of an underlying health problem.

How Ayurvedic doctors treat Dry Hair

Ayurvedic hair formulations are rich in vital nutrients that nourish the hair root to the top. A natural Ayurvedic formula, combined with diet and lifestyle recommendations, allows you to take full advantage of your natural healing abilities maintaining dosha balance.

Ayurvedic therapies like Panchakarma, Nasya, Shirodhara, Basti, and Shiro Abhyanga provide intense nourishment to the scalp. These therapies also help detox, rejuvenate, and boost blood circulation by balancing the doshas. Additionally, they reduce stress by relaxing your mind and body.

According to Ayurveda, regular exercise helps detoxify the body through sweating. Exercising also provides essential nutrients and oxygen to the hair follicles by increasing blood flow in the scalp.

Hair is a symbol of human life – it reflects the general state of health and indicates your emotional health. Stress, fear, and bad experiences – are immediately reflected in the health of the hair.
