If you’ve been struggling with dry, brittle hair even after you feel you have tried everything, then keep reading!
The sacred science of Ayurveda has unravelled to us that any imbalance to the harmony of your ‘Tridosha’ (life-forces) can affect well being. The cause of dry hair is excessive or imbalanced ‘Vata’ which is one of the Doshas. Excess of this dosha can cause hair to become frizzy, lusterless and dry with split ends.
Here is tried and tested ayurvedic wisdom on how to achieve hair that is full of life!
We recommend avoiding prolonged use of hair care products that contain parabens, sulfates and drying alcohols, heat styling tools, and chemical treatments.
If oiling your hair isn’t part of your hair care routine, then you need to start it now! According to Ayurveda essential oils such as Bhringraj oil
will not just improve hair texture but can also help promote hair growth. Pure cold-pressed coconut oil
will also do the trick! Apply it evenly from root to tip, gently massaging it into the scalp can help to increase blood flow. Hibiscus Hair Cleanser
Hibiscus is revered as a natural conditioner. Its many nourishing properties ensure your hair is sufficiently moisturized and even helps reduce the frizz. Our Hibiscus Hair Wash is made with 100% natural flowers and presented in an easy to use paste form.
DIY Aloe vera spray
Aloe vera is considered as a beneficial hydrant in Ayurveda. Dilute the aloe vera gel with distilled water adding 2-3 drops of light oils and store it in a spray bottle. You can use this spray when you feel your hair needs a little taming. If you prefer making an at-home aloe vera treatment, mix the gel up with some fenugreek and yoghurt for extra conditioning. This can be done once every two weeks. It improves the moisture balance along with giving you a ‘cooling’ effect. You can also try out our Aloe and fenugreek conditioner
for added benefits!
Hot oil treatment with argan oil
Argan oil is one of the most raved hair care ingredients and reasonably so, as it is rich in antioxidants, oleic acids, and linoleic acids. A hot oil concoction of argan oil is proven to do wonders! Boil some water and take it away from the flame, now take a cup of argan oil and place it in the boiled water so that it gets heated up through induction. Do not heat the oil directly. Make sure you have it about 1/4 – 1/2 a cup depending on how long your hair is. When the oil is considerably hot coat it evenly with the praying hands’ technique. Wrap up your hair in a hot water soaked tee, which you no longer use. Let the oil work it’s magic for the next 20-30 minutes. Follow up with a chemical-free wash routine!
Having long, lustrous hair is possible with a little bit of care and effort. Explore our range of ayurvedic ingredients and make your hair more healthy now!
