Ayurvedic Hair Care
For Healthy Hair
A more in-depth familiarity with AYURVEDIC HAIR CARE
The first step in finding a solution to your hair issues is to have an understanding of your Ayurveda hair type and the levels of the doshas in your body.
Ayurvedic Body type
Air and Ether are Vata-Dominant
People whose constitutions are dominated by Vata tend to be slim, with a slender frame and prominent joints, delicate naturally dry skin, and dry, volumous hair.
Fire & Water are Pitta-Dominant
People with more Pitta in their constitutions tend to have medium proportions, with a frame that is neither petite nor stout, warm skin that is very pale or ruddy and may be sensitive, and fine hair that tends to gray or thin prematurely.
Earth and Water are Kapha-Dominant
People with a preponderance of Kapha in their constitutions are typically larger in size, with a robust frame and cushioned joints, thick, smooth skin that may be prone to greasiness, and luxurious, wavy hair.
MIDDLE AGE TO ELDERLY
Ayurvedic theory suggests that as people age, they transition from Kapha (childhood and young adulthood) to pitta (young adulthood to middle age) to Vata (old age) (median age to elderly). Vata imbalances may manifest as hair that becomes drier and thinner as we age, and particularly as we enter the Vata phase of life. Vata-dominant individuals are advised by Ayurvedic medicine to adopt lifestyle habits that seek to balance their three doshas.
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.

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.
This powerful ingredient is particularly effective for those with elevated Pitta dosha, as it can help alleviate common hair concerns. But that's not all - hibiscus can also work wonders for those struggling with bald spots, as it can regenerate hair follicles and balance vitiated Kapha and Vata doshas.
