 Ayurvedic Hair Care – Ayurveda Treatments and Hair Loss

Hair loss is often associated with old age, however it is a form of disorder that is often experienced by some people during the earlier years.

Ayurveda offers some basic guidelines you need to observe such that you can adapt a lifestyle, diet, and hair care pattern to nourish your hair.

Structure of Hair Fall

One of the most basic steps to stop hair loss or reverse this condition is to understand why it happens in the first place. Your hair on the scalp is divided into two basic parts: root and shaft. The root is attached to the skin of your scalp and is surrounded with follicle. Meanwhile, the shaft contains three layers: (from the outer to inner layers) cuticle, medulla, and cortex.

Normal hair fall cycle happens every 2 to 3 months to make room for new hair to grow. This cycle goes on for up to 6 years wherein hair grows to approximately 1cm each month. Hair fall is a natural part of hair regrowth, but oftentimes excessive hair fall results to massive hair loss or baldness (alopecia).

Causes of Hair Loss According to Ayurveda

There are several reasons cited by Ayurveda experts as to the possible cause for hair loss:

  • Exposure to foreign substances such as pollutants, sunlight, dust, water, etc..
  • Excessive sweating.
  • Anxiety or depression.
  • Lack of personal hygiene.
  • Irregular sleeping pattern.
  • Too much alcohol intake.
  • Certain diseases.

    Before going to bed put oil in a small container. The quantity of the oil should be in proportion to the length and density of your hair so as to be applicable on your complete hair. Apply oil on the tip of your fingers and rub it gently on the base of your hair enabling it to penetrate in to the roots of your hair. Let the oil gradually seep into roots of your hair & nourish them for the whole night.Do not apply on your palms and rub it vigorously as it may uproot weak hair. Slow application and massage of hair only would yield better results. The oil may be removed in the morning with washing of hair with a mild shampoo which does not contain chemicals.
