Ayurveda is the oldest documented practices of medicine in the world and more than 5000 years old. The natural herbs that our ancestors used are still effective and offer natural cures for a majority of ailments including hair fall and hair loss. But today we live in a world far more complex than that of our ancestors. Modern times are plagued with problems such as lifestyle issues, improper food habits, increased stress levels, air and water pollution, various radiations and extreme exposure to harmful chemicals and toxins. These factors impacts our hair health in a negative manner. And to fight these unprecedented challenges to maintain a good hair health in such times we have combined the strength of both the ancient and modern herbs. Ancient ayurvedic herbs tackle the internal factors and nourish the hair from roots while modern herbs moisturize, shield and minimize the effects of pollution, chemicals and do cleansing.

The Science of Hair

To Understand the process of Hair growth and the problem of Hair fall one must first understand the ‘Hair Anatomy’. Our hair is made of two parts the ‘Follicle’ and ‘Shaft’.
The Follicle is the root of the hair located beneath the skin. There are about 1,00,000 hair follicles on the human scalp. The follicle is made of two parts the papilla and the bulb. Papilla contains tiny blood vessels that supply blood to hair follicle and also nourishes it with the necessary nutrients required for hair growth. The bulb surrounds the papilla and is the area where the hair cell multiply.
The Shaft on the other hand is the visible part of the hair. It is made up of a hard protein called the Keratin and the scale like outer protective layer is called the cuticle. The hair shafts are actually made up of dead cells which is why it hurt when your cut your hair.

Hair Growth Cycle

Normally our hair grows and has its own life cycle with the following four stages. Hair grows from the follicle, or the root, underneath the skin. The hair is ‘fed’ by blood vessels at the base of the follicle, which gives it the nourishment that it needs to grow. Between starting to grow and falling out years later, each hair passes through four stages: anagen, catagen, telogen and exogen. Each hair can be at a different stage of the growth cycle at any given time.

Anagen (Growing Phase)

This is the first phase of the hair growth cycle. At any given time 80-90% of our hair are in the anagen phase. On an average a normal hair grows 0.25-0.5 mm per day. The Anagen phase usually lasts for 2-7 years and also determines the length of our hair. People with longer anagen phase have longer hair.

Catagen (Transition Phase)

In this phase the hair transitions and lasts for about 10 days. This is phase wherein the hair follicle shrinks and detaches from the dermal papilla and blood supply.

Telogen (Resting Phase)

Resting phase or Telogen phase follows the catagen phase and lasts for around three months. At any point of time around 12-15 % of our hair are in this phase. Whilst the old hair is resting, a new hair begins the growth phase.

Exogen (New Hair Phase)

This is the last or final phase of hair growth cycle. In this phase the resting hair falls and the new hair continues to grow. Approximately 50 to 150 hair may fall daily and is considered to be the normal hair shedding. After the exogen phase, the follicle then returns to the anagen phase and the cycle repeats.

Reasons for Hair Loss:

Internal Dosha Imbalance (As per Ayurveda)

There are many reasons for hair but some of the most common ones include lack of proper sleep, unhealthy diet, obesity, lack of exercise, smoking and drinking habits etc. Majority of these causes are lifestyle related issues and adversely affect your hair health .Smoking can cause discolouration, particularly on grey hair or bleached blonde hair. And a poor diet can weaken your hair, causing it to fall prematurely thus leading to thinning of hair.

High ratio of hair fall is termed as Khalitya in Ayurveda and is classified under shiroroga. The primary cause is vitiated Vata and Pitta doshas which cause dislodgement or withering away of hair from its root. Also, vitiated sleshma (mucus) along with rakta (blood tissue) will obstruct the hair root which prevents the re-growth of the hair from that place.

Khalitya is primarily a Pitta-predominant tridosha janya vyadhi (disease in which all three doshas are vitiated). It can further be classified according to the dominant dosha.

Vataja Khalitya:

Caused by Vata imbalance, in this type the scalp appears as if it is Agnidagdha (burnt by excessive heat) and it becomes Shyava (blackish blue) and Aruna (yellowish red).

Pittaja Khalitya

Caused by Pitta imbalance, in this type the color of scalp appears as Peela (yellow), Neela (blue) and Harita (green). The scalp starts to show prominent siras (veins). Scalp may also sweat profusely.

Kaphaja Khalitya

Caused by Kapha imbalance, in this type the color of the scalp has a whitish tinge but here it is Ghana (dense) and Snigdha (oily) in appearance.

Air Pollution

Our hair and scalp works as a magnet for air pollution that consists of dust, smoke, nickel, lead, arsenic, sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen dioxide(NO2), ammonia (NH3) and “polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons(PAHs)” in the air, that settle on them. This settlement leads to an increased pH level which creates greasiness, flakiness, itchy scalp, dandruff, breakage and hair fall.

Water Pollution

Out of numerous reasons of hair fall, water is one of the most important reasons. The people living in the urban and semi urban areas suffer more from hair loss problems due to poor water quality in these areas. The municipal water is rich in Chlorine that leads to dry hair and hair damage. Ground water and Hard Water contains minerals such as copper, manganese, calcium and iron in high amount. These minerals are positively charged and your hair is negatively charged. So when you use hard water to wash your hair the minerals which are positively charged get attached to the hair strands that are negatively charged. Over the period of time this create a scaly film on the hair. This prevents the moisture from entering the hair. The result is dry, dull, tangly, and strange coloured hair. Hard water can also cause build up on the scalp, causing a dandruff-like condition.

Work Environment

The kind of your environment you work in also determines the kind of harmful elements your hair is exposed to. Like for example someone working as a construction engineer is exposed to higher amount of dust, air pollution, and sun radiation compared to someone who works as a software engineer. Simillary, for a person working in a factory their hair will be more exposed to oily and chemical environment.

Heat and Radiation

Though Ultraviolet (UV) radiation will not interrupt hair follicle function, as per hair experts. However, overexposure of hair fibres to UV radiation can in fact weaken the hair, disrupt the cuticle and make them more prone to dullness, frizz and breakage. Exposure of heat is not good for your hair as it can weaken the hair follicles and lead to hair fall. This is why it is highly advisable to limit the use of hair dryers, hot curlers etc.
