The nature of hair can be grouped into three categories as Vata, Pitta, Kapha type of hair. So that of Vata will be dry or frizzy, Pitta will be more prone to graying and Kapha will be thick and oily. It is generally not necessary to wash your hair with shampoo everyday. The oil from the hair shaft do not travel to the hair quickly to make it dirty.

So as with your hair type, it suggests a Pitta type where you can wash you hair thrice or four times in a week with natural organic shampoos like Nyle or Divya Kesh Milk Protein Shampoo Ideally you must apply oil to the head for around twenty minutes and then take a bath. The scalp and hair needs some oil for nourishment and there will be naturally some oil to nourish if you do not wash it with shampoo everyday. If you wash without oil and use shampoo, it will cause a dry scalp with little nourishment. In between you can appplyoil lightly to keep it lubricated and wash it the following day.

Medicines like Trichup Capsule, Narasimha Rasayanam – 1tsp before food twice daily can be taken for 3months and then reviewed. Apply Trichup Hair Oil thrice in a week and Nasyam with anuthailam is beneficial.

Include yoghurt, soya, broccoli, nuts, sesame, curry leaf, milk, chick peas, mustard greens, turnips and sweet potatoes. Avoid excess carbonated beverages, salt, sugar, fried foods,and refined flour. Drink plenty of water. Try to exercise regularly or Yogasanas like Vajrasana, Halasana, Adhomuka Svanasana, Shalabhasana,Supported Sarvangasana are beneficial.
