Black and bouncy hair is a woman’s pride which adds to her beauty and grace. Ayurveda, which is a holistic health care science, counsels taking care of diet and lifestyle so as to own bountiful hair as well as to stay clear of hair related maladies like hair fall and premature graying. 

Follow some simple Ayurveda recommendations and natural lifestyle tips which can help you gain soft, beautiful and bouncy hair.

Stress and strain are much ruining for the health of hair. Try and avoid mental stress as much as possible. It is one of the basic causes of hair-fall.



 • Everyday practice of meditation and deep breathing exercises called as Pranayamas tend to calm and soothe the nerves of the brain and scalp. This improves the blood circulation in the scalp region and thus strengthens hair roots.

• Your everyday diet should be well nourished with a good amount of protein like soy products and sprouts, natural fiber, ample supplement of vitamins and minerals and milk products, some butter and cow’s ghee.

Gentle massage of the scalp with finger tips and using some medicated herb oil or sesame seeds oil, mustard oil or coconut oil is a must preferably half to one hour prior to head wash is recommended at least twice a week.

• In case there is dandruff, a herbal home remedy is to mix a piece of Camphor in hair oil and massage it into the scalp on alternate days or twice a week.

 • Some Ayurvedic formulations like Navayas lauh, Swarn Makshik, Trifla etc have proved valuable for providing shine to the lusterless hair as well as preventing hair fall.

• ‘Bhram Rasayan’ is another Ayurveda Formulation that generates a calming and soothing effect of the brain nerves and as well tends to uproot the basic cause of the ailment of hair-fall.

• Increase your daily water intake so as to wash away the accumulated toxins in the body.

 • A sound sleep for seven hours is a must.



• Try avoiding suppression of the natural urges of urine, stool and flatus, as it tends to aggravate the malady of hair-fall.

• Constipated bowels need to be eased with intake of mild laxative.

 • Also, excessive washing of the hair, treating the hair with hot water and using more of synthetic shampoos and conditioners prove harmful for the hair and must be therefore avoided.
