Ayurvedic treatment of dandruff

According to Ayurveda, the problem of dandruff comes under the category of Shudra Roga. It occurs due to an imbalance of all three doshas. The Pitta and Vata dosha are the primary doshas that are involved in this problem. Pitta dosha symbolizes heat or fire while the Vata dosha is dry and rough in nature. When these doshas are in an aggravated state, then they leads to the production of Ama (impurities). These impurities are dry in nature and accumulate in the tissues of the scalp and contaminate them. The contamination causes itching and forms patches on the scalp. Due to this, more than normal amounts of epidermal cells are shed by the scalp and leads to the problem of dandruff.

Ayurveda provides the natural way to take care of the hair by providing pitta and vata pacifications through the natural herbs as well as healthy diet and lifestyle plan.
