🤔What is the Ayurvedic approach to treat hair fall problems?

🌹According to ayurveda, hair is the waste product of asthi(bone tissue) dhatu, hence the health of the hair reflects the health of the bone, so the first attention is paid to the formation of healthy bone tissue.

🌹Aggravated doshas are balanced with internal medicines and therapies .

🌹Good quality milk is most nutritious for bones. Avoid skimmed or toned milk as the fat in milk provides calcium to the bones. Drink warm milk only.

🌹Ayurvedic calcium supplements which are derived from natural sources and are rich in prana are given to prevent hair fall.

🌹Non-vegetarian people can take bone broth which is beneficial for hair.

🌹Take iron-rich food like raisins, dates, figs, beetroot, apricot, iron ash etc.

🌹Consume good quality fats like ghee, sesameoil, mustard oil, groundnut oil and coconut oil.

🌹Ayurvedic rasayan (anti ageing formulations) are given to be consumed like Chyawanprash, Brahma Rasayan etc. which are good for both bone tissues and hair.

🌹Amalaki oil, Maltyadi oil, Bhringraj oil, Neelbhrigraj etc. Ayurvedic oil are very beneficial.

🌹Apply oil once or twice a week and leave it overnight or for at least 1 hour.Apply little on scalp after hair wash also after they get dry .

🌹Hair wash powder- Mix equal proportion of reetha, triphala, bhringraj and hibiscus, use paste of this mix to wash hair.

🌹Medicines and oils nourish the hair follicles and encourage their growth.

🌹If the head remains hot, then apply aloe vera, it cools the skin of the head.

🌹Bhringraj regenerates, nourishes the hair.

🌹Almonds, cashews, coconut, fenugreek, aloe vera, amla, malti, hibiscus, lotus, sprouted wheat, curd, sesame seeds are good foods for hair growth and prevention of hair fall.

🌹Avoid steroid injections take more holistic approach and treat hair fall by eliminating the cause, not just forcing the hair to grow back.

👉Instead of applying any home remedy or oil find out the underlying cause of hair loss, consult an ayurvedic doctor, which will be helpful in finding out the cause.

👉It takes at least 6 months to 1 year for proper treatment as it takes time for the formation of Asthidhatu (bone tissue) .

🤔So only applying oil is not useful to prevent hair fall?

🌺Hair oil is helpful only where there is less strength of hair, dryness of scalp and mild dandruff.

🌺But if the hair is falling due to other physical diseases or mental stress, then without treatment, only applying oil or shampoo will not help.

🌺It is like watering the leaves of the tree and expecting the tree to grow. For that, the root has to be nourished.

🌺External oil, shampoo only helps 20%.

🤔Can we all get black, thick, soft and long hair as we see in advertisement?

🌻As in today’s time everyone is very conscious about their outer look, everyone wants perfect long, thick and dark hair but we are different from physical and mental nature which is fixed at the time of conception only which is defined as prakriti in Ayurveda. That’s why we cannot be alike or so called perfect.

🌻Vata type people have naturally dry, split, rough, weak, curly, grey hair,
Pitta person have straight,thin, soft, less, golden, brownish red color hair and has a tendency of early greying and thinning of hair .
Kapha person has thick, strong, soft curly, wavy and dark hair.

🌻So a Vata person should not expect to have Kapha type of hair, it will never happen.

🌻We can only manage our hair type but cannot change their nature.
🌻Hair type, texture and color also depends on region and country of birth.

🌻If there is already baldness, then with the Panchakarma therapy of Ayurveda like leech therapy , Basti etc, the application of various medicines is useful because in this condition the hair follicles gets closed due to kapha dosha.

👉Remember hair fall is normal with ageing.

🌱Ayurveda help to maintain the natural type of hair, delay greying and hair loss.
So adopt Ayurveda to cure hair fall problem .🌱
