I noticed the benefits of Ayurveda in my Hair Regime in Feb 2012 when I did my 7 Months Post Relaxer Length Check following my big relaxer cut in November. Okay the growth wasn't Rapunzel jaw dropping kinda long but considering my transitioning struggles, I knew my DIY Scalp Oil which is comprised of a good load of Ayurvedic ingredients, was definitely the reason I had a good amount of new growth and my hair was and still is super healthy. So if you like what you've heard so far and are thinking of adding some Ayurvedic spice to your life then here are some simple steps on how...
Henna | Natural dye as well as hair strengthener and temporary shaft thickener which is also used to encourage smoother and shinier hair.
Brahmi | Antioxidant properties, known to reduce hair loss and promote growth and hair strengthening.
Amla | Great hair conditioning properties whilst also strengthening, nourishing and keeping grey hairs at bay
Bhringraj | Used as a natural conditioning agent as well as hair loss reducer.
Shikakai | Used as a scalp cleansing agent
