How to maintain Healthy Hair
Some of us are blessed with naturally long thick shiny silky hair and some struggle to fix hair problems like hair fall, greying of hair, and In Ayurveda Hair nails and teeth are considered a by-product of Ashthi dhatu( Bone tissue). The health of our hair begins with the food we eat and the hair- care.
We expose our hair to some harsh conditions these days- chemical sprays, dyes, straighteners, curlers -the list is endless. We feel any damage caused to it can be undone once hair grows more as long as the hair roots are safe. Well, this is hardly the case Keratin – the fibrous structural protein that coats the outer layer of hair follicle does get damaged with harsh treatment. At AyuSpa we start the hair treatment sessions by massaging the hair roots with fingertips. As you feel the circulation increase in the scalp a herbal paste (henna, shikakai and reetha) is applied generously starting from the scalp and spreading to the length of the hair to stimulate hair growth, prevents hair fall, or greying and maintain hair colour. The paste is left in place for half an hour It has conditioning and nourishing properties.
