Hair Loss: Getting to the Root of the Problem
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, the average person loses 50-100 hair strands every day. However, indian men, in particular, are shedding more than 100 strands per day.
Hair loss is something almost all of us inevitably experience at some point in our lives, so it's important for us to create an open, comfortable dialogue and discuss the statistics, root causes, and preventative methods regarding hair loss.
Indian men have a disproportionately higher rate of hair loss.
Dr Kohli’s Herbal Hair oil is one of our oldest and best selling products in our line; many can attest as to why its so popular:
This product contains a thoughtfully curated blend of oils and ingredients that work in conjunction to not only prevent hair loss, but to encourage regrowth of stronger, thicker, and healthier hair.
A key ingredient is Brahmi. Also known as Bacopa monnieri or water hyssop, brahmi serves many benefits. In addition to being notorious for improving cognitive function (such as memory, attention, etc) and holding anti-inflammatory properties, brahmi nourishes the scalp, strengthens blood vessels in the roots, and contains alkaloids that naturally condition and toughen your hair follicles.
Another powerful ingredient known for combating hair loss is bhringraj oil. In conjunction with brahmi, bhringraj promotes hair growth and prevents hair loss by increasing blood circulation and enriching the scalp and roots with vital nutrients and moisture. Additionally, bhringraj has antimicrobial and anti fungal properties that can prevent dandruff.
These two ingredients combined with the powers of Amla, Ritha, Shikakai, Neem, Burdock Root, Horsetail, pure essential oils of Rosemary, Tea Tree, Camphor and Lavender infused in bases of Grapeseed oil, Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond oil, and Olive Oil work together to prevent hair loss, repair damage, and even encourage hair growth
All of our products are based on the principles of ayurveda, and this product is no exception.
The benefits of massaging:
A key aspect of oiling your hair is massaging it thoroughly into your scalp. Not only does this increase absorption of the product, it encourages blood flow to the hair follicles. This altogether strengthens roots and promotes hair growth. No wonder this technique has been practiced in ayurveda all throughout its history!
To properly massage, apply oil on your scalp and start massaging with your fingertips, moving them in a circular motion.
Quick tip: use warm oil for optimum efficiency
Massage in a circular motion to encourage blood flow.
Not only does massaging help the product absorb, prevent hair loss, and encourage hair growth, a scalp massage reduces stress:
In addition to investing in good quality, natural products for your hair, it's important we check on our overall well being to prevent hair loss; Stress is one of the many contributing factors to hair loss.
Stress ties into other areas of life, prompting a poor diet. A lack of nutrition going into your body will result in slower growth and lead to hair loss.
Oftentimes a deficiency can also be linked to hair loss. If you’re iron deficient, our skin and hair can receive less oxygen from the blood, slowing hair growth and prompting hair loss.
Altogether, for strong beautiful hair, it's important to take care of yourself; internally by combating stress and maintaining a good diet, and externally by limiting the use of chemicals, and incorporating natural products into your routine.
