In Ayurveda, hair is considered a secondary vital tissue reflective of health linked to both bone marrow and the central nervous system. Ayurvedic treatments and routines do not only produce healthy lustrous hair but can also bring peace of mind and balance emotions. Healthy hair functions as an energetic antennae to harness subtle energies of the body and assist the senses to work in harmony.
HOW TO BRING ABOUT YOUR BEST HAIR HELF
Avoid washing your hair everyday. It strips the natural oils from your hair and increases Vata qualities of dryness and fragility. When you do wash your hair, massage the scalp, roots and tips of the hair in Brahmi,, Neelibhringadi or Triphala Oil. Leave on for 20 minutes or so and wash well with tepid water (all above mentioned oils available at the Sattva Centre - please contact us to place an order here).
Cook with cumin, black pepper and turmeric spices within your food for lustrous locks.
Avoid heat drying techniques - it damages the hair but is also a no-no for scalp health.
Make sure you get adequate sleep and meditation into your daily routine. Happy hair begins with balance and nourishment on the inside.
Use natural hair dyes, if any at all, as what you put in your hair is also being put on your scalp and absorbed by the body.
Comb, massage and care for your hair as part of your daily routine and watch it flourish.
Light and love,
