What is it?

Let's talk Ayurveda. Ayurveda is an ancient system of health care that was designed by Indian people (No, not Native Americans). The word "Ayurveda" can be translated to "science of life." (Ayur meaning "life" and veda meaning "science/knowledge") Many women have hopped on the bandwagon for Ayurvedic hair care. Ayurvedic hair care not only involves the health of the hair, but also the health of the body. According to Ayurveda, the health of the hair is reflected by the health of the person. So, if your diet ain't on point, you're hair ain't on point either.

Where do I start?

You can start purchasing items such as Shikakai, Coconut oil, Mustard oil, Amla, Almond oil, Camphor, etc. Washing the hair with natural shampoos/soaps is important! That's where the Shikakai and Amla come in. They are amazing for the hair. Another thing to remember is daily scalp massages. The use of oils like Coconut and Mustard oil fits in for this job. These oils can help with dandruff, hair loss, and an itchy scalp. Last, but not least, your diet is important! Good foods to include in your diet are: green leafy vegetables, milk, fruit, soybean, nuts, and vitamins.

I have yet to try Shikakai but I have used Alma for my pre-shampoo treatments. It is definately a keeper. Thanks for the tip.
