Ayurvedic Principals for Hair Care and Hair Loss:

Ayurvedic research on hair growth is extensive and well structured. This strong foundation provides Ayurvedic practitioners effective reasons behind excessive hair fall and the ways to reverse it which in turn results in consistent hair growth. According to Ayurveda, hair type is directly related to body type and is systematically classified into three categories; Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Each hair type has its own distinct features and hence there are multiple reasons for hair loss which vary from person to person.

According to Ayurveda, hair is nourished by the nutrient plasma that is derived from the food that you eat. However; certain foods have a negative effect and cause excess Pitta Dosha meaning heat in the body which is the chief reason behind excess hair loss. Apart from Pitta Dosha, other reasons for hair loss according to Ayurveda are hormonal imbalance in men and women, stress, lack of sleep, improper diet, intoxicating substances, dandruff or fungal infections and diseases like lupus or diabetes amongst others. Ayurvedic hair regrowth solutions addresses these core issues promoting hair regrowth.

    You can lso try using avocado and banana hair masks, that made my hair grow. I also use a product called Pro Naturals moroccan argan oil after each shower and it helps hair to grow stronger and healthier. Its online. Eat protein since hair is made from it, massage your scalp every night and drink enough water a day. You can take vitamin E supplements for healthy skin, hair and nails. Some people take Biotin and that seems to help. You’ll get much softer and shinier hair with all of that. :)
