Ayurvedic treatments to prevent hair fall and increase hair growth

It is natural to shed some hair every day. We all lose some hair to free the hair follicle for new and stronger hair to grow.

However, if you tend to lose a bunch of hair while running your hand through your hair or while showering, it is time to consult the doctor.

If you are not keen on taking too many medicines and turn to modern medications, consult the best ayurvedic specialist for hair fall.

Ayurveda follows traditional methods to cure and prevent any disease. Hair fall is no different. These ayurvedic home remedies will help you build the hair growth rate within some time.

  • Fenugreek Seeds

Fenugreek Seeds are rich in proteins, calcium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin K. Furthermore, fenugreek seeds are known for their antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nature.

For hair growth, you can mix fenugreek seeds with curry leaves to make a thick paste. For that, you need to soak the seeds overnight. Before applying it, add some curry leaves to it.

After blending, you can even add a few drops of coconut oil, if you have a dry scalp.

  • Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha is known to enhance DHE (dehydroepiandrosterone) production. DHE is a hormone in the body that stimulates hair growth by preventing any harm to the hair follicles.

Ashwagandha is the best treatment for hair fall due to stress and anxiety.

There are numerous ways to use ashwagandha for hair loss. You can opt for ashwagandha herbal tea or ask the ayurvedic specialist near you for some ashwagandha supplements.

You can even apply an ashwagandha paste by mixing the ashwagandha powder with lukewarm water.

  • Amla and Shikakai

Amla is loaded with Vitamin C and makes an essential part of many skincare and haircare routines and treatments.

Even celebrities prefer to apply Vitamin C on their face for a radiant glow and some fitness experts recommend drinking amla juice for detoxification.

On the other hand, shikakai is a natural hair cleanser. It is rich in antioxidants and promotes hair growth.

You can use a mixture of amla and shikakai to wash your hair. It is not a daunting task. You just have to boil amla and shikakai in water.

After the water has changed to a light brown colour, you can use it as a shampoo for your hair.

Expert Tip- Extract the amla pulp after boiling and strain it in the water to get maximum benefits.

  • Curd and Lemon

Dandruff is one of the main reasons for hair fall. Lemon is rich in Vitamin C and citric acid, which helps in cleaning the scalp.

Hair is made up of a protein called keratin. Reduced amount of protein in the hair follicles causes hair fall.

Curd is highly rich in fatty acids, Vitamin B5, and lactic acid.

Make a mixture of curd and a few drops of lemon. Apply it on the hair, focussing on the scalp. Keep the mixture for about 30-45 minutes. Wash your hair with lukewarm water.

  • Bhringraj

Bhringraj is highly rich in Vitamins, Calcium, Magnesium, and Iron. You must have heard of bhringraj oil, which is in popular demand.

It enhances the blood flow in the hair follicles, which further promotes hair growth. Further, Bhringraj is anti-bacterial. Thus, it treats scalp infections. Regular use of bhringraj oil reduces the inflammation of the follicles.
