Next topic for discussion: Hair Fall and Hair care in winter - management with #Ayurveda
Dr. Sushant Patil: In Winter as we all know Ruksha Guna increases. Pitta Prakopa and Vat Dosh also in increased state. As if Patient will do Viruddha Aahar, Ruksha Aahar, no oil application over skull or whole body then Hair fall started.
Chemical Free Beauty Treatments
We recommend enjoying our “Hair-Spa”
(removes dryness & improves luster)
Vd. Pritam Bharat Veer: Hairs updhatu of Asthi dhatu. When there is Vat prakop Asthi kshay. Asthi kshay leads to hair fall. Also hair fall is due to vat and pitta prakop. Hair fall can also be due to rukshan of urdhwajatrugat organs. In winter rukshyA gun of vaat increases which leads to vaat prakop. Also hair fall can be due to prolonged illness in past. For hair care I always recommend Nasya with simple Goghrut or ghrut whichever available.
Dr. Bindiya U Shanghvi: Amla juice daily is best for hair fall
Vd. Pritam Bharat Veer: Also I give the. Bhrungraj kalp internally and nilibhrundyadi yeil for local application. I myself got good results from this oil. So I do recommend too.
Dr. Bindiya U Shanghvi: Local application aamla powder+aritha powder+ bhringraj powder+ methi powder soaked overnight in buttermilk
Vd. Pritam Bharat Veer: Triphala kwath dhavan along with Shikekai also works in hair fall. Triphala yeil also good for hair fall. Shirodhara can be given with Amalaki sidhha teil.
Dr. Sushant Patil: I always Give Keshvardhini Rasayanam a product of Swami Ayurved Pharmaceutical Khamgaon. Kukkutand Team Bhasm , Mandur Bhasm, Kantaloh Bhasm as per prakruti with it
Vd. Pritam Bharat Veer: Why? Kukutandtwak mandur kantloh??
Dr. Bindiya U Shanghvi: I also give rasayan powder nd saptamrut loh
Vd. Pritam Bharat Veer: What's content of Keshwardhini? What's Rasayan POWDER. Want karyakaran bhav or what is your thought process?
Dr. Bindiya U Shanghvi: Its contain guduchi,gokshur,nd aamla
Dr. Pranita Shah: Before starting rasayan churnas for hairfall, i first rule out dandruff, ajeerna, pandu. The results for stopping hairfall are better maintained after treating such pre-existing conditions.
Dr. Dipa Mehta: Pratimarsh nasya with goghrit is helpful
Ayulink: How about finger tip massage on head, foot massage with copper bawl for hair fall and good quality of hair? How long one has to do these?
Dr Jayesh Patel: Some times water is also cause of hair fall.....Like hard water which contain more minerals than normal
Ayulink: please suggest some remedies..for each condition...
Dr. Bindiya U Shanghvi: Ya but this condition what to do
Dr. Bhavesh Modh: May be Bronze ( कांस्य) bowl... instead of copper... I think it's simply chemical reactions between Ghee & Bronze ... colour turn in dark black... In Finger tip massage law force than palm massage... Possible.. massage with palm... more hair loss so, prefer finger tip ...
Dr Ashi Vaidhya: I used bhringraj Bramhi aavla neem reetha ashvagandha aloevera jatamansi mix with neem oil and olive oil make a paste apply it for 1 hrs after hair wash for 15 days. Along with Asthi poshak tab and abhraloha for 2 month
Ayulink: How can we control brittle hair and split hair?
USA Gary Yuen: I have heard there is a significant amount of calcium in hair. That may support the practices of using and consuming the higher calcium food such as curry leaves and bahua/chenopodium album.
Vd. Ahmed Savani: Indication of Vitamins in dietary insufficiencies, supplements of folic acid (B complex
vitamin) or Pyridoxine (B complex vitamin, B6) could be helpful to hair growth. The logic behind these indications is that these vitamins play a role in cysteine (significant amino acid in the composition of the Hair)
Vd. Ahmed Savani: Gunjadi Tailam is very effective in Hair-Fall
Dr. Pramod Nakarde: Increased intake of fried, sour, spicy, salty, and fermented foods, as well as tea and coffee, aggravate the Pitta Dosha (Ayurvedic humor representing Fire) in the body. This Pitta accumulates in the skin of the scalp, leading to hair falling out and graying prematurely. Factors like excessive anger and stress are also responsible. Excessive consumption of alcohol and meat also aggravate Pitta. Use of variety of shampoos.. hair Colours Psychological factors like stress and tension plays a major role in hairfall.. vitamin deficiencies can also be traced as a major reason..
खलित्य व पालित्य रसवह स्त्रोतस दुष्टी लक्षणे
Daily washing of hair,due to hard water and applying shampoo also leads to hairfall.In parlours doing straightening of hair,curling of hair as heat is applied,also leads to hairball.
causes may be~
1.consumption of salt ~directly or indirectly...excess eating of...lays kurkure,panjabi dishes,hotelling etc..etc..
2.too much shampoo use..SLES
3.HOT Water bath
6.male type baldness...androgen
8.previous major disease~kochs,anemia,calcium low,cancer,AIDS,malnutrion(low /excess wt.)
10.low ghee,oil intake
11.occupational hazards ~painter,carpenter ,drivers
12.KAM SHOK BHAYAT VAYU,krodhat pittam
13.Ghrahani like annavaha,purishvah,majjadhara kala
16.boring salty water ..hard water for hair wash
Croatia Branko Markovic: What is then best herbs in form of oils or shampoos for overall hair growth and keeping hair healthy?
USA Gary Yuen: As herbs taken internally are often combined with carriers such as pippali or ghee to deliver herbs and increase absorption, are there carriers for hair oils or is the oil itself enough?
Ayulink: For overall hair growth or hair care, simple coconut oil is used by millions of people in India. And it works.
Amlaki, bhringraj, brahmi, are most commonly used to produce hair oil - even at home level. Hair care is a big industry in India. Long, black, shiny, thick hair is the first prerequisite prerequisite of beauty in Indian society. Hundreds of products available in Indian market for hair care. Yet millions of people make their hair oil and shampoo at home from natural ingredients. Arishtak, shikakai (soap nut), Amlaki are commonly used for shampoo. Nili is used for dyeing agent. Ganja and dhattura leaves are mostly used in dandruff and hair fall. Coconut oil, sesame oil and castor oil are most common base oil. Regular head / hair massage with oil is common practice in India. Now in days Foot massage, Nasal drops, shirodhara etc are not commonly used at home. In short, proper diet, good habits, good sleep are important for hair care.
Dr. Bindiya U Shanghvi: Hibiscus hair oil is also best for hair fall. Its leaves nd flowers are very useful in hair fall
USA Gary Yuen: Indeed diet is fundamental. Though much had changed over the centuries. New foods not native to India, many westerns think are good are not compared to what was eaten in ancient times. Fruits and vegetables. Amla is far superior to what is common yet there are many forest and mountain fruits and vegetables once used and better than all common foods like modern palak gobi bindi modern forms of eggplant etc. Ancients knew forest and desert animals they are light to digest may have been good (maybe if only eaten with wild plants) yet people today eat heavy meats from farmed animals. Plus we live in a polluted world and things once perhaps good like tea and ghee are likely to be contained from the soil or plants eaten by animals. No herbs can heal the modern diet. Health if we remember according to texts is living to 100 or longer with no disease. We live as predicted without dharma, in kali yug.
Dr. Daisy Kanabar: Nilibhringadi tail can b used...
Ayulink: I think Nilibhringadi oil can also useful for grey hairs. It gives little nili (grey-indigo) colour to hair.
Dr. Daisy Kanabar: It is indicated in prematurly white hair nd hair fall but something shampoo or other medicines can b used for supportive work...
Dr. Vivek D. Shah: It can be symptoms of anemic condition where Hb% nd Ca level show decreased in amount...and it can b disease where hair roots r affected by fungal infection...
Ayulink: sure...in many conditions, i.e. Thyroid diseases, leucorrhoea, endocrine disorders etc. hairfall can be a symptom..
Dr. Vivek D. Shah: It can be seen also after wt loss training in several patients though normal blood counts. Specificaly in winter we found more fungal infection in hair root as a main cause of hair fall rather than any deficiancy...so i think some natural antifungle local aplicant wil help..
Vd. Avni Kaneria: Also Dandruff can be cause of hair fall so first we should treat dandruff
-shiro abhyang with dhatur-patryadi taila
Dr. Hiral Khakhar: We can get good result with Gunjadi tail also..
Kalyani yadu: In winter due to cold weather the optimal blood supply and nutrition to hair follicles reduces hair follicles easily goes to telophase and they will shed off,so it is better to concentrate on nutritional part instead of external oil massages. Any rasayana drug or haematonic drugs like Saptamrutha loga or Dhatri loga along with ghritha may be useful
Dr. Megha Patil: For Split hair. I think we can give asthi dhatu poshak and snehpan
Dr. Vasupradha R: snehapanam with?
Dr. Megha Patil: I dont knw sir😐 I need to read ...i dont knw its right or wrong
Dr. Vasupradha R: What are the internal medicines that can be given in daarunakam?
Ayulink: Brittle and split hair both can be considered as Vata aggravation and can be controlled by sneha. I would prefer ghee - plain or medicated for internal use for both conditions.External use of oil is also sneha and internal use of ghee will be also sneha.
Dr. Megha Patil: Sir what about asthi poshak ? Its neccesary or not?
Snehpana is sufficient?
Ayulink: Amla contains calcium. Somewhere I also read that ghee also good for bones.
Dr. Megha Patil: So we can give amalki swaras or churn both are effective
Dr. Vasupradha R: What Abt the bringamalaki taila sevanam?
Ayulink: Yes. Amla in any form is good for hair.
Dr. Vasupradha R: Won't churna form again may cause vata vrudhi?
Ayulink: No. Amla is not vata aggravating
Dr. Vasupradha R: No sir, my question is won't Churna aggravate vata ...? No dbt amalaki is not vata vardhakam
Ayulink: Yes. Some churnas can aggravate vata, but in that case we can think about its ghrut Kalpana or oil Kalpana
Dr. Vasupradha R: Oh, tku sir
Dr. Megha Patil: Sir will u please guide us about it ?
Dilipbhai Vaghela: Is trifala extract really good.... Is it effective in removing dandruff too? From hair
Anoop S. Anand: Hair is the dhatu mala of Asthi dhatu..for hair care nourishment of Asthi dhatu is of utmost importance
Dr. Vipul Patel: Any drugs for white hair (palit)
Anoop S. Anand: Guggulu, amalaki, bhringaraj, sesame, Moringa, coconut, aloe vera etc are good for hair
Mr. Ram Vala: For white hair- Amla + gokhru + gado satv + Cow ghee + khadi sakar As per the arybhishek
Dr. Daisy Kanabar: Ya but isse ext. Kya kese use krna h....
Ayulink: Here our friend recommend Giloy satva or extract of Giloy / Guduchi
Mr. Ram Vala: Gaducchi or giloy. Aryaabhishek me matra nahi di gayi hai. Mere anusar saman matra leni chhiye. Tinospora cordifolia- English name
XXXXX 21603: Triphala choornam pack along wd henna is seen very good results in hairfall
Vd. Khyati Jariwala: I m making oil vid Curry leaves...gives effective result in grey hair as well as hair fall
Vd. Dipam Tripathi: First we think about very simple why hair fall
In simple langue hair root like roots of tree
In 2 condition tree fall down
1. Vaat vruddhhi...
2. Pitt vruddhhi....
Lack of nutrition...suskata in tree....
So in that way always 1st think about vaat and pitta 2nd is hair is a mal of asthi dhatu And asthi is a vaat sthan so in that way also vaat har treatment is applicable. Another factor is stress. So that also be consider
Nasa hi sirasho dwaram" So nasya.....is useful. Shirodhara is useful in stress related hairfall. In new era people don't like abhyang in head. It's also a reason for hair fall and whiting of hair Sirah...karna.. padeshu
Abhyang acharet nityam
Dr. Daisy Kanabar: Ok but use apply kese krna he hair wash krna or anything else...
Mr. Ram Vala: Take with water. It's not for applying on hair. It require to take as dose
Vd. Gurumahantesh: The reasons for hair fall
1. Use of hot water for head bath
2. Excess consumption of salt, even in the hidden forms of bakery products
3. Excessive use of shampoos, gels
4. Not to forget dandruff
5. Variations in hormone levels
6. Reduced calcium levels

Blend the leaves with some water to get a consistent paste. If you cannot find Bhringraj leaves, mix 5-6 tablespoons of dried bhringraj powder with some water to get a thick consistent paste. Apply the paste to your scalp and hair and leave it in for 20 minutes. Wash off with shampoo.
