Amla is a natural storehouse of Vitamin C and antioxidants, enriched with high levels of Iron content, making it an indispensable component in hair care products. It is also rich in elements like Ellagic Acid and Gallic Acid These work in tandem to improve blood circulation in the scalp area, stimulating hair growth and strengthening hair follicles.
In nuts, vegetables, and fruits, ellagic acid was found to obstruct the production of collagen-damaging MMP enzymes and inhibit ICAM, a molecule that plays a part in inflammation.
Gallic acid is a phenolic acid found in fruits, nuts, wine, and tea. It has antioxidants and is antimicrobial.

The infusion of Ritha in Ayurvedic Hair Care Products is a natural alternative to chemically propelled cleansing agents that irritate the scalp and further dry the skin. Ritha contains a natural surfactant called Saponin that helps create foam to clean dirt, dust, and oil in the hair.
The vitamin concentration in Saponin enhances the hair's shine and reduces dryness, making the hair look silky and voluminous. Using this healthy and natural alternative strengthens the hair from the root.

Shikakai is rich in Saponins, Vitamins A, C, E, K, and antioxidants that make your hair shiny. Moreover, this natural cleanser lathers mildly and thus cleanses your scalp and hair gently while improving your hair’s texture.
Vitamin A also helps skin glands make an oily substance called sebum. Sebum moisturizes the scalp and helps keep hair healthy.
Your body needs vitamin C to create a protein known as collagen — an essential part of the hair structure.
Like vitamin C, vitamin E is an antioxidant that can help prevent oxidative stress.
Vitamin K aid in your skin's healing process if it’s been compromised, as it supports the skin's natural barrier function.

Flavonoids are antioxidants that help reduce inflammation, redness, stress, and skin aging.

Brahmi helps in forming a protective layer around the hair fibers.
It is considered the top contender medicinal herb in the world of Ayurveda due to Brahmi's benefits for hair. It contains a group of intense compounds called bacosides, a kind of triterpenoid saponin that positively affects the body.
It helps rejuvenate the scalp and promotes the regeneration of healthy hair. Additionally, bacosides in the plant are anti-inflammatory.
A Deeper Understanding of Ayurvedic Hair Care
Understanding your Ayurvedic hair type and dosha levels is the preliminary step in your journey to deal with your hair problems.
VATA (MIDDLE AGE TO ELDERLY)
One of the notions in Ayurveda is that with aging, everyone transitions from Kapha (childhood and young adulthood) to pitta (young adulthood to middle age) to Vata (median age to elderly). As we age, and especially as we enter the Vata time of life, Vata imbalances may manifest as hair that becomes drier and thinner. Ayurvedic medicine recommends lifestyle habits for Vata-dominant people that aim to balance their three doshas.
Ayurvedic Body type
Vata Dominance: Air & Ether
People with more Vata in their constitutions tend to be thin, with a slender frame and prominent joints, delicate naturally dry skin, and dry voluminous hair.
Pitta Dominance: Fire & Water
People with more Pitta in their constitutions tend to be of medium proportions, with a frame that is neither petite nor heavy, warm skin that is very fair or ruddy and may be sensitive, and fine hair that tends towards premature graying or thinning.
Kapha Dominance: Earth & Water
People with more Kapha in their constitutions tend to be of more enormous proportions, with a robust frame and padded joints, thick, smooth skin that may tend towards oiliness, and rich, wavy hair.
What's Your Ayurvedic Hair Type?
VATA-DOMINANT HAIR TYPE
In balance, Vata hair is naturally fine and thin and can grow quickly. On the other hand, Imbalances in Vata can bring about low sebum production, causing hair loss, frizziness, and split ends.
SCALP MOISTURE - VATA TYPE
Vata hair type usually has a dry scalp with scaly dandruff as it lacks adequate moisture and sebum in the scalp tissues.
Moderate in thickness, but soft and predictable to manage. Pitta imbalances can lead to early greying of hair, bacterial overload in the follicles, and redness or soreness.
SCALP MOISTURE - PITTA TYPE
Pitta dominant Prakriti, the scalp texture can be greasy and often prone to boils and itchy dandruff.
Thick, coarse, and wavy or curly. An imbalance in the Kapha energy can cause greasiness due to sebum overproduction. Unpleasant symptoms can include hair fall and an itchy scalp.
SCALP MOISTURE - KAPHA TYPE
You may observe normal scalp texture with adequate moisture levels in a well-balanced Kapha hair type. But, aggravation in Kapha dosha results in an oily scalp with dandruff.
Benefits For Hair
Most herbs used in hair and skincare are good for everyone, regardless of dosha.
Amla is considered a ‘superfood‘ for hair. With a zillion nutrients like vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and phytonutrients in this ‘wonder fruit,’ it is a hair fall control remedy and natural conditioner. Amla is also very high in antioxidants which help maintain the scalp's health.
According to Ayurveda, amla balances all body processes and brings to equilibrium all three doshas - Vata, Kapha, and pitta.
It is a well-known fact that Shikakai is an age-old remedy for hair-related problems but did you know that it has other benefits too? Let us explore its several therapeutic benefits and uses.
Hair Growth - Cleanser - Anti-fungal and Anti-bacterial Properties - Heals Wounds - Anti-oxidants - Controls Hair Fall.
The radiant Ayurvedic power of 100% Organic Shikakai Powder suffuses hair with nutrients, smooths, and lends natural shine.
Reduces Pitta and Kapha
Colorless Henna Leaf
Colorless henna is rich in biologically active substances such as chrysophanol, emodin, carotene, betaine, rutin, and others. Emodin helps to restore the hair’s neutral shine, carotene repairs damaged hair structure, betaine locks in moisture and makes the hair softer and smoother, and rutin strengthens hair roots. Chrysophanol (chrysophanic acid) has a pronounced antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effect. It helps to eliminate dandruff.
Suitable for Vata, Pitta, and Kapha
According to Ayurveda, the medicinal properties exhibited by neem are used for all hair ailments and show drastic effects upon regular use. If you have dull hair prone to breakage, the conditioning properties of neem powder can help your hair become stronger. Neem strengthens your hair by contrasting it with each hair follicle. Neem revitalizes and restores dry, undernourished, or rough hair to a smooth, silky texture due to its moisturizing effects.
Pitta Dosha Herbs
Methi, also known as Fenugreek—has been used by Chinese and Ayurvedic medicinal systems for centuries. In general, anyone can benefit from the protein and anti-inflammatory properties found in Methi powder. Those with coarse or curly hair may notice added softness and shine. It soothes scalp inflammation, treats dandruff, strengthens hair, and prevents shedding.
Kapha Dosha Herbs
Brahmi is one of the Ayurvedic herbs for hair that supports average hair growth by rejuvenating the scalp. It offers the additional benefit of helping calm the mind. It is long believed that Brahmi also stimulates the cognitive functions of the mind and that applying it to the hair and scalp will bring these same mental benefits by absorption through the hair follicles and pores. This herb balances Tridosha — the three biological energies as a collective.
Brahmi is a powerful medicine to treat various disorders caused by imbalances in the three doshas, especially Vata.
Ritha is a highly valued plant in Ayurvedic medication for its detoxifying and therapeutic properties. Ritha Fruit powder, when used alone or combined with other Ayurvedic ingredients, serves as a natural shield to curb hair fall. That is already being used in many deep conditioning products. So instead of using it as a side ingredient, you can make a suitable mask and significantly reduce your hair fall. Its fruit has immense Kapha pacifying qualities.
Ritha balances all three doshas.
Manjistha Powder has proven to be extremely helpful in combating hair loss. Even stubborn dandruff is gently prevented, while at the same time, a sensitive and damaged scalp can benefit significantly from its properties. The powder is perfect for gently darkening hair and also possesses antibacterial properties.
It actively balances the Pitta doshas and Kapha doshas.
Bhringraj (Eclipta prostrate) is famous in India for its use as a natural hair tonic. It is so well known for its affinity with the hair that it often goes by the Sanskrit name kesharaja, or “king of the hair. A primary ingredient in most Ayurvedic hair care, bhringaraj promotes strong, healthy hair growth and helps maintain the hair's natural color and luster. It is one of the best rejuvenates for Pitta and has a particular affinity for the head. Regarding natural hair care and loss, Bhringraj is the first herb we recommend. It is one of the most distinguished herbs in Ayurvedic healthy hair care.
