Ayurveda for Healthy Hair
By Qhemet Biologics
Ayurveda is an ancient Indian health and wellness system founded on the principle that physical, mental and spiritual balance can be achieved through meditatiom, diet and holistic medicine. This approach holds that balance is maintained through proactive rather than reactive strategies.
Ayurvedic hair care systems are no different. With so many types of hair out there, finding the right kind of care that works in your environment can be tricky. Many products promise a cure for common hair complaints such as dryness, split ends or frayed edges but fail to deliver in the long run. Unfortunately, clever marketing ploys, our propensity to repeat old patterns and our desire to hold on to sunk costs can keep us going back to products that don't actually do our hair any favors.
These are the products that make hair appear more healthy momentarily, but because they're filled with a range of harmful additives and chemicals, theyâ€™ll actually continue to worsen the state of your locks; prompting you to buy more of the same stuff and thus perpetuating the cycle.
What's even worse is that some of these products contain ingredients that aren't just harmful to your hair. Common ingredients such as BPA and phthalates are known endocrine disruptors, which means they can actually change the production of certain hormones responsible for body regulation and cell signaling.
Ayurvedic hair care utilizes ingredients that not only work to restore your hair's natural beauty, but also restore the body's balance overall. With 100-percent natural ingredients,
Ayurveda aims to address the root cause of the problem, which often originates well beneath the surface.
We use only the best ingredients to help you treat, cleanse and style your natural hair. Among our most popular ingredients are amla, brahmi, moringa, coconut oil and castor oil.
The Indian gooseberry has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries to treat internal complications, but is also well-known for the multitude of benefits it offers your hair and scalp. Amla is a great natural moisturizer and conditioner and a rich source of antioxidants, all of which improve hair's texture and prevent breakage. Amla nourishes follicles to increase hair growth and helps significantly reduce dry scalp and dandruff. Amla oil also and dissolves grease and dirt to improve overall hair health.
Easily one of the most popular herbs in Ayurveda, the brahmi plant has a unique chemical composition that's said to be responsible for a range of therapeutic effects. In addition to helping people achieve better overall health including improved memory and sleep, brahmi is also known to promote hair growth by improving blood circulation to the scalp, strengthening hair follicles and keeping split ends at bay. Brahmi also improves volume and hair shaft strength, resulting in a softer and more luxurious mane.
With ample nutrients and a range of antioxidants for your body, moringa oil has plenty of benefits to spare for hair care as well. From vitamin C to its abundance of amino acids, moringa is the ingredient if you're looking for a healthy, silky smooth hair shaft. In addition, moringa also promotes keratin growth, strengthening hair significantly and creating a healthy body and plumper hair strands.

The moisture contained in coconut oil is unsurpassed, and because it can easily penetrate the hair shaft, coconut oil is one of the best natural ingredients to help you transform dry, damaged hair. Coconut oil is known to prevent hair breakage and split ends, both of which positively contribute to hair growth and strength. Its ability to help decrease hair protein loss ensures hair stays healthier and more resilient.
Castor oil has been used for centuries. A product of the castor bean, castor oil coats hair to lock in moisture and balance the scalp. The ricinoleic acid in castor oil is essential for hair growth, and because castor oil is also thought to improve blood flow to the scalp, this simple but natural ingredient has often been touted as nature's hair growth aid.
