Hair & Scalp Problems

Hair & Scalp Problems

There are many different types of hair out there, and we all want what’s best for ours. After all, the hair is usually one among the most prominent aspects of a person’s physical look, likely second solely to one’s face. If our hair didn’t matter to us in a collective sense, there wouldn’t be a multi-billion dollar hair care industry peddling their products on the market.

The problem is that many of these products contain harmful chemicals that can have an extremely detrimental impact on both the hair and critical internal systems like the endocrine and nervous systems. Unfortunately, most hair products only manage to repair the hair superficially and sometimes only temporarily often damaging the hair in the process.

The Ayurvedic approach is different. Ayurvedic hair care employs each product and treatment methods that are 100% natural.

Ayurvedic tradition is intrinsically holistic. So whether you choose a topical treatment for the hair itself, a more systemic approach, or a combination of the two, Ayurveda aims to address the root cause of the problem which often originates well beneath the surface.

Before we talk about remedies, we need to understand the basic Ayurvedic system. According to Ayurveda, everything in the universe is made up of the five elements – air, fire, water, earth and ether – and the three doshas, namely vata, pitta, and kapha. Ayurvedic experts say that we can achieve sparkling health by balancing these within our body. Doshas apparently govern everything about us, from hair colour to body type to the kind of illnesses we can get afflicted with. Generally, we have one or two dominant doshas.

There can be various reasons for hair fall. These include weight loss, abysmal iron levels, irregular diet, stress and thyroid and hormonal imbalances, according to experts. A well-functioning body system is needed to control hair fall. In other words, the very root cause of hair loss needs to be tackled first – we need to cleanse our system from within to balance the doshas. And this is where Ayurvedic treatment can be of great help.

Gamak Ayurveda treatment focus on correcting the constitution for treating hair fall. Ayurveda considers the imbalance of Pitta as the chief cause of premature hair fall and greying. Dandruff is a Vata Kapha imbalanced disorder.
