Hi there, Marc here from BaldingSerum.com.
Today’s video is going to be an interesting one.
Because I’ll be talking about ayurvedic treatments for hair loss, that’s why :)
More and more people having been raving about ayurvedic this and ayurvedic that, so I figured
I might as well be covering it for you today too :)
So ok… what is ayurveda or ayurvedic treatments really?
Well, Ayurveda has been known since centuries, it has existed for about 5000 years to be
exact for being a holistic system of medicine.
Ayurvedic medicine is actually a system of traditional medicine native to the Indians
and is a form of alternative medicine.
And Ayurveda uses a lot of plant-based medicines and treatments.
Ok – so ayurveda stresses a balance of three elemental substances which are:
No 1 - Vayu / v?ta (which is air & space – "wind")
No.2 - pitta (which is fire & water – "bile") and
No.3 - kapha (which is water & earth – "phlegm").
Ayurvedic theory suggests that each human possesses a unique combination of doshas that
define that person's temperament and characteristics.
By the way – a “dosha” is is one of three bodily humors that make up one's constitution
just as I’ve mentioned just now, which is the vayu, pitta and kapha.
So each person has a natural systems state, or natural combination of the three elements,
and should seek balance by structuring their behavior or environment to provide more of
the element(s) they lack.
In a way, just like how the chinese feng shui contains elements of earth, wind and fire,
etc… consider this to be the Indian version :)
So what causes hair loss?
From an ayurvedic stand point, increased intake of fried, sour, spicy, salty, acidic and fermented
foods, as well as excessive consumption of alcohol, meats, smoking, tea and coffee, aggravate
the Pitta in the body.
This Pitta accumulates in the skin of the scalp, leading to hair falling out and graying
Factors like excessive anger and stress are also responsible.
Again from an ayurvedic point of view, hair is a byproduct of bone formation and the tissue
responsible for building bones is also responsible for the growth of hair.
Early hair loss is related to body type and the balance of the mind-body constitution
And people who have too much of Pitta in their body are likely to lose their hair early in
life, or have prematurely thin or gray hair.
And this excess Pitta in the sebaceous gland, at the root of the hair can lead to hair loss.
So an Ayurvedic treatment of hair loss is done by neutralizing the Pitta through a “rejuvenating”
diet and lifestyle regime, along with medication.
A combination of diet, herbs, oil massage, meditation, aromatherapy, breathing and yoga
can be beneficial in addressing the problem of hair loss and premature graying of hair.
When it comes to diet…
- Cut down on fiery, fire-y pitta foods like fried foods – anything that is fried, oily,
spicy. Coffee and tea are also a no-nos.
- Make sure your daily diet contains of a lot of fresh fruits, green leafy vegetables,
and vegetable juice prepared from lettuce, carrot, capsicum, and alfalfa
- Cut off anything that is “chemical-based” for your hair if possible – replace them
with herbal and natural based hair products
- Cut off or try to minimize intake of refined foods, refined sugar, junk food, alcoholic
and carbonated drinks
- Stop smoking and stop drinking.
As for home remedy herbs to take:
1 - Jatamansi – Another name for it is Muskroot or the Indian Spikenard.
It has the power to remove blood impurities as well give skin a glowing complexion.
You can either consume it in the form of capsule or applying it directly on your scalp.
2 - Bhringraj- Also known as the king of Herbs:
It is known as the king of herbs in ayurvada for hair because it has the properties to
enhance hair growth.
All you need to do is make a paste out of the leaves and apply it on the scalp for some
time before washing it off.
3- Amla – Amla helps in indigestion and purifies the blood.
It is also rich in Vitamin C, which solves many hair problems from within.
Amla is also known by any as the “Indian gooseberry” - it is packed and rich in Vitamin
C therefore is loaded with antioxidants
4 - Hot Oil Massage with Ayurveda Oils:
A hot oil massage using either coconut, almond or brahmi oil helps improve circulation and
rejuvenates your hair follicles, which in turn leads to better blood circulation to
You can expect good results in the form of less hair fall and quick hair growth within
a span of 6 months
5 - Neem: This is a natural remedy against dandruff and lice and also has blood purifying
You can use this in powdered form with coconut oil to massage the scalp.
6- Reetha: These are natural soap nuts that are used for cleaning hair without stripping
off the natural oils.
7- Methi - Methi is a commonly used herb in our households, also considered to be an excellent
remedy for hair growth.
8 - Banyan Tree: For this – all you have to do is to take a small part of the root
of Banyan tree and mix it with lemon juice and apply it to your hair.
This video is getting a bit too long so I might just have to wrap it here for today.
It looks like I’ll have to create another video because this is actually quite a big
topic by itself.
