The science of Ayurveda is all about creating a balance of energy in our body. If the energy balance is disturbed, we see symptoms, which may be called diseases.

The three components or three types of energies are Pitta, Vata and Kapha. Pitta energy processes the food we eat and absorbs the nutrients from the cells. In a way, Pitta energy controls our metabolism. Vata energy controls the internal movements like blood circulation and transmission of nerve impulses. Kapha energy controls liquid things like moisturization and lubrication (of joints). Any imbalance in these three energies causes illness.

Hair loss is due to imbalanced Pitta energy. Keeping your scalp well-moisturized controls hair loss. Make sure to use a natural product like a natural oil for moisturization. Popular oils for hair massage are coconut, olive and almond oil. Combing the hair after applying the oil helps it get to the roots. Use your fingers to rub oil on your scalp in a circular motion. Do not put a lot of pressure; else weak hair would become more fragile due to the intensity of the massage. Finger movement should be done from forehead to back of the neck. We recommend to keep the oil on for sometime before washing your hair. Use a natural (preferably ayurvedic) shampoo to wash the hair after the massage. Do not dry the hair immediately after washing it.

Such head massages should be performed in the evening to get maximum benefit. You can also mix some ayurvedic herbs to the oil to make it more effective. By doing so, you can prevent further hair loss. Doing the process correctly under guided supervision may result in the natural growth of lost hair.

Hair growth usually does not happens in days or weeks. It takes time to build hair strength and growth. For good results, you need to be patient and massage regularly.

For best results, see an ayurvedic practitioner with a speciality in hair growth.
