Ayurveda has been known since centuries for being a holistic system of medicine. It’s incredible, therapeutic properties work on three doshas: Pitta, Vata and Kapha. Hair loss is an effect of excessive “Pitta Dosha” in the body. The level of Pitta Dosha escalates due to hot climate, excessive intake of spicy, salty, tea, coffee, alcohol, meats and chain smoking, leading to hair thinning and breakage. Ayurvedic treatment for hair fall aims to maintain the level of Pitta Dosha in the body with a combination of personalized diet, herbs, oil massage, yoga and meditation.
