Ayurveda explains that good hair are a sign of good, balanced state of tridosha and imbalance in the tridosha can lead to poor hair health. The management is balancing the vitiated dosha and strengthen the dhatus by appropriate diet, lifestyle and herbs. Herbal oil massages are also important part of hair health. Herbs such as brahmi, amla, ashwagandha, ritha and neem are good for hair health.
