Hair in ayurveda is defined as the mala or inferior by-product of Asthi dhatu.
Hairfall can occur due to many reasons such as dandruff, pollution, lack of proper and regular diet, constipation, hereditary hairfall by aging, depression, major sickness like typhoid, pregnancy and childbirth etc.
For recovering hair at initial levels of balding, ayurveda suggests Kesh Ghrita to be applied twice a week on scalp.
For advanced stages of baldness, only surgical methods like hair transplant may work.
Also, hair regrowth is very difficult after you cross 40 years of age.
So, try this method if you are below 40 and experiencing frequent hairfall.
Ingredients to prepare Kesha Ghrita :
- Jatamandi powder – 10 gms
- Bhringraj leaves powder – 10 gms
- Black Sesame seeds powder – 10 gms
- Lotus seeds powder – 10 gms
- Ananatamul(Indian Sarsaparilla / Sugandhi Pala / Kapuri) powder – 10 gms
Procedure : Mix all these powders and make a paste with water.
Take 25 gms of pure cow ghee and boil the above paste along with this ghee till the water is evaporated and only ghee remains with essential contents of these powders.
The ratio of ghee and powders should be 2:1 (for 50gms of total mixed powders, add 25 gms of cow ghee).
Filter this ghee and store it in a glass bottle.
Depending on your necessity, increase the powders and ghee according to above ratio.
Usage : Take 2-3 spoons of this ghee and make it lukewarm.
Wash your hands thoroughly and dry them.
Apply this warm ghee onto scalp with your finger tips, especially in areas where you are experiencing more hairfall.
Let the ghee sink into your scalp skin and wash it with mild shampoo or shikai powder after an hour.
Repeat this process twice or thrice a week and do not apply any other oil or hair creams or gels during this treatment.
Benefits : Existing hair roots will be strengthened and also hair will smell good and become smooth without having to apply any additional conditioners or perfumes.
Hair will regrow from recently closed pores on the scalp and also all scalp related diseases like dandruff etc will be eliminated.
If you already had severe hairfall recently, the start this process after tonsuring your head or cutting your existing hair to smallest possible length.
