Ayurveda`s Role:

Ayurveda focuses on Ahara-Vihar (Diet and Lifestyle) concept to promote holistic health of body including hair care.  If your diet is deficient in hair-friendly foods, or your digestion is not good enough then it can definitely lead to thinning of hair or hair fall. 

Shathayu Ayurveda provides counseling on proper diet and life style to promote hair growth. Also, it has come up with traditional and effective therapies like Shirodhara, Abhyangam, Nasyam. Successful administration of these along with some herbal medications for 2-3 months remarkably arrests hair fall.

Shirodhara is a combination of two words, shiro meaning head and dhara meaning flow. Medicated liquids are gently poured over the forehead which is helpful in complete cleansing of the body by eliminating the toxins there by strengthening the hair root follicles. Not only this, Shirodhara helps in reducing stress hormone ‘cortisol’, induces a sound sleep and can reverse premature graying of hair.

Weekly oil massage for head is another simple hair loss treatment. A number of different oils and herbal extracts, including Bhringraj, Brahmi taila which strengthen the hair roots are used for massaging. This improves blood circulation and enhances hair growth.
