Let the secrets of Ayurveda come to your hair’s rescue

Hair fall is bad news and it is safe to assume that all of us have had to deal with it at one time or another. But when it comes to the solutions, what works for one person may not work for another. You know why?

It is because we all have different body types. According to Ayurveda, hair fall is directly dependant on our body type, which is classified into Vata, Pitta and Kapha. What category your body comes under decides what hair problem you will face and your hair growth and hair fall patterns.

If you fall under that Vata category, you will most likely have dry, frizzy hair that lack lustre and have a dry scalp. If you fall under the Pitta category, you will most likely see premature greying of hair and baldness, and if you fall into the last category, Kapha, you will most probably face an oily and itchy scalp.

Whichever maybe your hair concern, be assured there is an Ayurveda-certified herb that will alleviate your symptoms. Here we list the absolute kings for hair fall remedies...
