According to Ayurveda, the body is made up of three ‘doshas’ or bodies – Vata (air and space), pita (fire and water) and kafa (earth and water); Data (seven body tissues); And Mala (waste products).

In addition, each individual has a combination of the prakruti (constitution), the three doses. Imbalances in these doses, dats, and mascara can lead to hair loss and eventual hair loss.

But do not worry, Ayurveda has the solution for all your hair problems. Here are some simple but effective tips you can try at home.

Reduce stress; Your first step toward healthy hair (and general well-being) is to live a stress-free, healthy lifestyle.

According to Ayurveda, Doshas is balanced by stress, which, in combination with lifestyle choices such as smoking and alcohol, can lead to hormonal changes and hair loss.

So, as a starting point, exercise regularly, quit smoking, drink moderately (if any) and work on relieving stress in your life.

Maintain a healthy diet; Nutrients such as iron, magnesium, proteins and vitamins (A, B, C, D, E and K) are essential for hair growth, and imbalances can lead to hair problems.

Eat a moderate amount of healthy fats such as ghee or nuts and drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated. Some of the foods that help fight hair loss include leafy vegetables, yogurt, pumpkin, lentils and sesame seeds.

Vegetables control all the nutrients in your body and are rich in iron and vitamins, essential for healthy hair growth.

Yogurt has a cooling effect on the body and is rich in lactic acid which helps to treat Vata-Pita related imbalances. It is also rich in vitamins, which makes it an excellent hair diet. A healthy alternative is butter with ginger or pepper butter.

Cucumbers are another cold food rich in fiber and vitamins A and C. It also makes your hair soft and shiny by resisting Vata and Pita imbalances.

Corridor is rich in vitamins C and K, iron, manganese and magnesium, which promote follicle health and prevent hair loss. Drinking a spoonful of roasted sesame seeds provides enough iron and calcium along with other nutrients for the hair.

Tips for hair growth
There is nothing better than oil therapy and massage to make your hair grow faster. Here are some simple tips to follow.

Regular oiling and massage nourishes the hair and strengthens the blood vessels in the scalp. Grease your hair at least twice a week and wash with a little shampoo.

Grease your hair with oil before and after bathing. Dyeing your hair before bathing reduces the amount of water it absorbs in the hair shaft, making it more prone to damage when wet.

Re-oiling your hair after washing it will make it softer, smoother and more manageable. It also slows down when you swell or style, which reduces the risk of breakage.

The best oils and natural ingredients for your hair:

Coconut oil dies – This has been used in India for centuries. The medium-chain lauric acid, which gives a long and straight chemical structure, penetrates the hair follicles.

Studies show that coconut oil is very effective in preventing hair loss before and after bathing. In addition to coconut oil, Ayurveda is equally important for using Jatmansi oil to grow natural and natural hair.
