According to ancient classics hair is one of Pitruja bhava, which means quantity and quality of hair of a progeny are depend on paternal side and Kesotpatti kala of fetus is at 7th month during gestational age. Ayurveda also says that the ingested food form Ahara rasa which further divided in to Sara and kitta, in which kitta is responsible for production of hair. Doshas get vitiated by excess intake of spicy, salty, sour, masala foods, tea, coffee, fried foods etc which leads to hair fall. We need to find the root cause of hair fall and based on that herbs are given to balance vitiated doshas and improve the quality of Asthi dhatu which are effective in treating hair fall. In this modernized life due to improper Dinacharya, Ritucharya, and stressful work, people are prone to disease.
Food habits that helps to reduce hair fall, are intake of green leafy vegetables, dried grapes, dates, milk, almond, walnut, matsyakshi, bhrngaraja, amla etc and need to avoid deep fried & junk foods. Based on the conditions, oils are used for scalp massage and should be left for at-least an hour. Use only mild natural shampoo, which do not contain harmful chemicals. Specific yogas like Sarvangasana and Vajrasana will also help to control hair fall.
