No one can stop hair loss completely. But you can have healthier, fuller and thicker hair while slowing down the rate of loss.

Ayurveda and Hair Loss

In Ayurveda, each person has dominant individual characteristics that combine into general physical and psychological types called doshas. The three doshas are vata, pitta, and kapha, and while each person has a dominant type (or sometimes a mix of two dominant types) everyone possesses elements of each that Ayurveda seeks to keep in balance in order to maintain optimal health. Specific health conditions and recommended remedies are intricately linked to imbalances in doshas—including those having to do with hair type and hair disorders.62, 174ayurveda_medicine_for_Hair_Loss

Those with pitta doshas are more likely to have thin hair, while vata doshas often have dry and coarse hair. In comparison, kapha doshas have soft and thick hair. Pitta types are prone to balding, but both excess vata and pitta causes hair to shed (conditions referred to as Indralupta, Rujya, and Khalitya). Inflammatory scalp conditions (referred to as Arunshika) associated with hair loss are caused by kapha excesses.174
