Long, lustrous and healthy hair is something that we all desire, whether UR a man or a woman. Hair is one of the most prominent features, which accentuates our physical appeal and boosts self-confidence. As per Ayurveda, our hair health is a direct result of how well our bone tissue (marrow), focal sensory system and our gut function individually. This simply means, that any concerns which may arise and involve the health of UR bone tissue, sensory(neural) system and gut related framework can compromise UR hair health too! Growing hair concerns can vary from thinning, hair fall, dandruff, balding and eventually hair loss when we neglect our health or throw our dosha off balance. According to Ayurveda, there are three doshas as we know;

Vata represents Air and Ether energy mechanisms within one’s body.
Pitta represents the Fire energy system in one’s body.
Kapha represents the mechanisms of Water and Earth energy in one’s body.

All of which are our life-feuling energies which flow through all of us. When any of the three dosha’s are imbalanced, it starts to reflect on UR overall well-being like; UR skin, hair, mood, menstrual cycle, hormones and much more. But, not to worry, Ayurveda has a solution for everything and even UR hair concerns! If you want to know which dosha/Prakriti you may belong to before getting started then take our dosha quiz.
