Ayurveda suggests use of natural drugs (of plant source) in treatment of any disease and they usually do not have side effects.

Shikakai, aloe, sage, ritha, amla are good in conditioning the hair.
Shikakai -softens hair
Musk roof -promotes hair growth
fenugreek -provides natural proteins for nourishment
chickpea -provides natural proteins
soapnut -conditoner
jasmin -nourishment
Thistle -promotes hair growth

Proper care and nourishing of hair will reduce the hairfall to a greater extent.

The best Ayurveda treatment is take flowers of hibiscus, take out the juice from it, apply this juice to your hairs and keep it for forty five minutes before washing.

The other treatment is boil coconut oil, curry leaves, hibiscus flower, and gooseberry. Cool it and filter the oil. Apply this oil daily and keep it for half an hour before washing.

This will help you to stop the hair loss

Here are some solutions i came across ::


Dandruff is nothing but "Dry skin flaking off our scalp and some kind of itchiness many times"
This dryness is generally caused by the aggravation of Vata.

Make the following solutions :
Solution 1 : Massage the coconut or neem oil before going to bed (this works better if a little camphor is added to the oil)
Solution 2 : Massage the scalp with the oil made by mixture of coconut, mustard and castor oils
Solution 3 : applying the mix of coconut oil and lemon juice also works, but for some people it may not work out.

Tip: Never use too hot or too cold water to wash hair

Hair Loss / Balding

This may happen due to change in the body metabolism, mental tensions, even sometimes diet may cause the same.
Another commen reason is exposure to too much heat, dust, sweat and chemicals

Solution 1: Take Good & healthy diet(with more protiens); never skip meals
Solution 2: Never forget to take care of hair, by keeping it clean, dust free
SOlution 3: Make sure you do regular massage with any warm oil
