While the eyes are a window to our soul, our hair health is that window which provides a sneak peek into our overall well being. Ayurvedic research on hair growth is extensive and well structured which makes it easy for practitioners to pinpoint the cause of hair fall and treat it accordingly. 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 distinct features and hence there are multiple reasons for hair loss which vary from person to person. Hair loss is caused by Pitta Dosha. Pitta governs our metabolism and digestion. A balanced pitta leads to a healthy body and mind. It controls our well being. Once you identify the reasons of Pitta Dosha, it becomes easier to correct it. Typically, bad eating habits, anxiety, and stress cause Pitta Dosha, which in turn leads to hair loss. Excessive consumption of tea, coffee, alcohol, meat, fried and spicy food can cause an imbalance in pitta. Apart from Pitta Dosha, other reasons for hair loss according to Ayurveda are hormonal imbalances 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 address these core issues promoting hair regrowth. If you hair has been highly damaged by blow drying, chemical hair products and coloring, it’s impossible for it to speak about your health, because your hair is no longer in its natural state so any thinning, loss or brittleness can be mainly attributed to the chemical products. Its important to keep your hair natural and healthy so that you’ll be aware of the warnings it can show. Ayurveda address 3 key concepts of care during the treatment, namely; Nidana (diagnostic measures), Ahar (food that can be used preventive medicine) and Chikitsa (support and self-care).
