How To Reduce Hair Fall Through Ayurvedic Treatment?

Hair fall seems to look like a simple problem, but actually, it is one of the worst situation faced by most of the people. There are many reasons which cause that situation, to state it can be due to pollution or genetic problem or food habits. So, there is a need for taking treatment in natural ways, instead of using tablets or others which have several side effects.

Defects for hair loss in terms of Ayurveda:

Ayurveda states that the body system is made up of three dosas, which are vatta, pitta and kapha. When these three dosas are perfectly balanced, then a person is said to have a perfectly well-maintained body. Hair loss is the result of exacerbation in the pitta dosha.

Reasons for hair loss:

The most important causes for hairless in terms of Ayurveda is due to the changes in routine lifestyle. Some of the common reasons include:

  1. Irregular food habits
  2. Improper diet
  3. Stress
  4. Imbalanced hormone levels
  5. Thyroid
  6. Weight loss
  7. Iron levels

So, there is a need to follow a strict daily routine, to avoid all the problems.

Ayurvedic treatment for hair loss:

Ayurveda is a safe and cost effective alternative medicine to cure hair loss problems. Ayurvedic home remedies treat hair fall completely if it used in the early stage of hair fall. As per Ayurvedic philosophy, hair loss is caused due to excess of Pitta dosha in the body. Pitta increases in the body due to excess intake of alcohol, coffee, tea, smoking, fried, spicy & acidic food products, and hot climatic conditions.

In order to get rid of hair loss, there is a need for applying some natural products to hair regularly as hair packs, this will work well. They are as given below:

  1. Amla
  2. Bhringraj
  3. Reetha
  4. Shikakai
  5. Coconut
  6. Jojoba
  7. Aloe Vera
  8. Methi
  9. Yogurt
  10. Neem

All these when applied instead of the chemical products, helps in reducing hair fall at the same time hair grows stronger and thicker. There are various treatment options that have a dual effect on baldness - reduce hair fall and promote hair growth, thereby providing a holistic treatment for baldness.

Bhringraj Oil (Eclipta Elba): Used since centuries ago, it promotes the normal hair growth cycle in an accelerated way.  It activates a large number of hair follicles and therefore regular application is believed to help prevent alopecia (baldness).

Amla (Phyllanthus Emblica): While baldness has many reasons, dandruff is one of the most important and common causes. Amla is added to many hair oil formulations because of its proven effect to reduce dandruff. It acts on the fungi that thrive on the scalp and reduces inflammation of the scalp.

Shikakai (Acacia Concinna): Another very popular herb is the Shikakai. Used as a hair cleansing agent by many people, it is devoid of the chemical effect that shampoos carry. The pods are proven to prevent dandruff and promote hair growth. 

Tectona Grandis: Another active ingredient of Ayurvedic formulations, the seeds of Tectona promote growth and development of hair follicles. Large number of follicles are activated, thereby producing thicker, fuller hair. 

Cuscuta Reflexa :Another reason for baldness is hormonal imbalance, especially in males. Abnormalities with androgen, the male hormone, can trigger abnormal hair loss. Adding cuscuta has been proven to reverse baldness by promoting a better anagen/telogen ratio where hair follicle maturation happens.  In baldness cases, maturation happens only in about 20% of the follicles. Cuscuta activates the follicles and increases follicular density.  It also manages the hormonal imbalance by preventing conversion of testosterone into a variant called dihydrotestesterone that is believed to cause the damage.

These herbal formulations along with the medications (depending on the cause of hairfall)helps in controlling back the hairloss.

Other therapies which help in reviving the blood circulation and hence controlling the haifall are - Leech therapy and Wet Cupping Therapy.
