Aloe vera is one plant that has been used for centuries for its cooling and healing properties. It is reported to contain over 75 active compounds in its inner gel including vitamins, minerals, enzymes, sugar, etc. In this article, we’ll try and understand how it can solve our major monsoon hair problems with respect to Ayurveda.
The science of Ayurveda is based on three biological energies- Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Disturbance in any of these can cause different ailments in your body. And your hair problems can also be a result of a disturbance in one of these doshas.
1. Controles greasiness in hair
If you are suffering from greasy, oily hair then you must include Aloe Vera in your hair care routine. In Ayurveda, an oily scalp or a scalp that releases excessive sebum is linked with an imbalance in the Kapha dosha.
Aloe Vera is known to have enzymes that can break down the fats in your scalp and take away the excess oil. Aloe vera is a gentle cleanser and hence it removes extra sebum produced in your scalp without making hair strands dry.
2. Heals the itchy scalp
An itchy scalp is usually the result of a dry scalp. Ayurveda suggests that a dehydrated scalp is caused by the imbalance in the Vata dosha of your scalp tissue.
Aloe Vera has anti-inflammatory properties and can decrease the redness and itchiness of the scalp. It significantly reduces the scaly patches and restores hair health.
3. Reduces Frizziness & Imparts Shine to Hair
Frizziness in hair is the result of an imbalance in Vata Dosha. It is responsible for dry scalp thus making hair frizzy and dull.
Aloe Vera is a natural conditioning agent and has active amino acids. It deeply conditions hair and prevents them from getting frizzy. The active amino acids repair your damaged hair and give it back its original shine and volume.
Sesa’s Rice Water shampoo with Aloe-Vera and Biotin helps keep hair Frizz-free. It hydrates your hair and makes it shiny and smooth. The science behind this shampoo is that the aloe vera in it locks your opened-up hair cuticle and retains the natural oils present in your scalp. Hair cuticles when locked make the hair appear smooth and shiny.
4. Has Antibacterial properties
Aloe- Vera has antifungal properties and is antiseptic in nature. It fights scalp infections and restores hair health. It’s also believed to fight dandruff. Its healing properties soothe the scalp and heal itchiness and irritation.
5. May help in hair growth
Aloe vera is packed with essential minerals. When applied to the scalp, it’s believed to improve the blood circulation in hair follicles. The hair follicles start receiving the nutrients and oxygen from the blood, they become healthier and that contributes to faster hair growth.
