How to use shampoo?
A number of people just slop shampoo onto their heads without paying attention to the correct way of applying it. But it is important to keep a few things in mind:
Washing out shampoo:
Ayurvedic home remedies for hair loss or hair fall
Herbal hair cleansers:
Reeta (soapnut) and shikakai form the best natural therapeutic cleansing base for herbal shampoo, which cleans gently without adversely affecting the scalp and the hair. Reeta is best for oil hair as it causes excessive dryness. But the dryness can be countered by mixing it with amla (gooseberry), making it suitable for dry hair. Both these herbs are far superior in their cleansing properties as compared to the synthetic shampoos. Amla has darkening properties, which provides superb gloss and color to Indian hair. Being the main ingredient of natural Ayurvedic oils, it also imparts shine to dry and lusterless hair Due to these causes the tridoshas get vitiated and cause hair loss. Medicated oil with the herbs Bringaraja, Amalaki, Haritaki and vibhitaki is a best remedy for hair loss.
