Ayurvedic Hair Masks for All Hair Types

Ayurvedic Hair Masks Many Indian women are proud of their thick, strong and shiny hair, and they have every right to be. The secret of their hair’s beauty and health is the use of natural hair care products based on the ancient recipes of Ayurveda, a system of traditional medicine native to India. Today, many cosmetic brands that produce natural and organic cosmetics offer Ayurvedic hair masks formulated with herbal ingredients.

Ayurveda is a system of medicine with historical roots in the Indian subcontinent. Its therapies are typically based on complex herbal compounds and minerals. Plant-based treatments in Ayurveda may be derived from leaves, bark, roots, fruits, or seeds of the plants. In the Western world, Ayurveda practices are considered a type of alternative medicine. Some Ayurvedic plants and recipes are also used in the production of natural and organic cosmetics.

In general, Ayurveda sees the beauty of a person through the prism of health, as well as claims that inner harmony is crucial for physical beauty. That’s why, in terms of Ayurveda, it is the combination of physical wellness and spiritual well-being that helps to maintain one’s beauty and health.

This approach can be applied to the beauty of the hair, too. If you want your hair to be strong, thick, soft, tame, shiny and flexible, you need to make sure that the scalp and hair roots are healthy. You should also take care of your overall health and learn how to cope with stress before it does any serious harm.

The central concept of Ayurvedic medicine is the theory that health exists when there is a balance between three doshas (fundamental bodily bio-elements). They are Vata (represents air), Pitta (represents fire) and Kapha (represents water). Typically, one of the three doshas predominates and determines a person’s constitution, including their hair type. Knowing your dosha will help you to choose the hair mask that is just right for you.

For example, Vata hair typically is thin and dry. The problems that are common for such hair include dandruff, irritated scalp, dehydration, brittle hair and split ends. That’s why hair care products for this hair type must contain ingredients that help to solve these problems and prevent their re-emergence.

Pitta hair is prone to getting oily. Such hair may be strong and thick while you’re young, but it usually becomes thinner and weaker as you get older. Common problems include premature grey hair and excessive hair loss. Ayurvedic masks for this hair type help to prevent premature ageing and reduce hair loss.

Finally, Kapha hair is thick and strong, but it is also oily, which is its main problem. Besides, this hair type is prone to tangling. That’s why it needs hair care products that regulate sebum secretion, help to keep the hair fresh, make it tame and keep the hair from getting tangled.

However, “pure” hair types are rare, most often a person would have a combination of two or three doshas with different proportions. And only a balanced combination of all three doshas, which is rare, is considered healthy. As most consumers don’t know much about the concept of doshas, Ayurvedic hair masks and other hair care products are usually accompanied by instructions for hair types we’re all used to, such as dry hair, oily hair, curly hair, damaged hair, normal hair, etc.

Today, Ayurvedic hair masks are produced by many beauty brands. Some of these brands specialise in Ayurvedic cosmetics, while others produce a wide range of natural and organic cosmetics formulated with medicinal plants and other natural ingredients. For example, Golden Ayurveda Hair Mask is produced by the Russian brand Planeta Organica that offers personal care products based on traditional beauty recipes from around the world. Other brands that offer Ayurvedic hair masks include Triuga, Lady Henna, Aasha Herbals, and others.

Key ingredients in Ayurvedic hair masks are medicinal plants native to the Indian subcontinent or Asia in general. They include neem (Indian lilac), bhringraj (false daisy), amla (Indian gooseberry), shikakai, acai berries, tulasi (holy basil), henna, gotu kola (centella, Indian pennywort), and others. Each of these herbs is effective by itself, but ingredients for Ayurvedic hair masks are selected in such a way that they complement and enhance each other’s effect. It is one of the most important Ayurvedic principles.
