Dandruff is a common scalp condition caused by excess shedding of dead skin from the scalp. The scalp skin dies and flake off and gets accumulated with oil and dirt blocking the pores and causing itchiness and flaky dust on the scalp. If left untreated, dandruff can weaken the hair root and causes hair loss and hair thinning. At Ayur Bethaniya Ayurveda Hospital, we provide herbal combination of oils and hair packs along with internal medicines that cleanse the scalp and stimulate the hair follicles to grow new stronger and shiner hair.

Ayurvedic Dandruff Treatment
Ayurvedic treatment for dandruff and hair care therapy includes bringing in balance and harmony of two doshas Pitta and Vata. Aggravation of any of these doshas can result in accumulation of toxins and impurities in the deep tissues of scalp and pollute them causing itching and patches on scalp. To fight against the accumulation of toxins, the scalp skin sheds larger than normal amounts of dead scalp cells, which in turn leads to the formation of dandruff.
At Ayur Bethaniya Ayurveda Hospital, we believe in treating and identifying the root cause of dandruff and completely treating and removing the imbalance that causes dandruff. The treatment plan includes pacifying Pitta and Vata doshas through combination of herbal medicines, oils, massage, and a special diet plan and few lifestyle modifications. Special combination of herbs are used to produce hair growth promoting oils and hair packs that stimulate the hair follicles to grow new hair, cleanse and cools the scalp and remove the impurities from the scalp. Diet and lifestyle modification include avoiding spicy, greasy, hot foods and incorporating high nutritive value fiber-rich foods, salads, fruits, and lentils. Diet should also include antioxidant foods like green tea, almonds, walnuts, plenty of green leafy vegetables Washing your hair regularly and massaging the scalp using herbal oils prevent the accumulation of dead scalp cells and prevent the occurrence of dandruff. Minimizing stress and anxiety level help pacify the doshas and balance the system.
