What is Triphala? The magical ayurvedic Rasayna and its benefits for hair

Most of us have heard about Triphala at least once in our life. However, there's a misconception attached to this remedy. It's not just one herb but made from three herbs. In Sanskrit, the word "Tri" means "three," and "Phala" means "fruits," so these herbs are used for their medicinal benefits and also for their nutritional value. This preparation is a Rasayana that consists of three medicinal herbs, i.e., Amalaki, Bibhitaki, and Haridra, to treat various health disorders. Triphala is a Tridoshic Rasayana that regulates the human body's three doshas - Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. It enhances digestion and aids in removing toxins from the body. 

Haritaki is a nutrition health supplement that helps maintain healthy hair and skin. It helps prevent and manage hair fall, breakage, and dandruff. In addition, it contains early signs of aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines, and helps delay the appearance of premature signs of aging, such as grey hair.

In this blog, we'll be talking about 5 different benefits of Triphala for hair- 

Hair Growth Stimulant 

Consumption of Triphala helps improve digestion and deliver proper nutrients to hair and scalp. It nourishes the follicles, stimulates hair growth, and improves blood circulation in the scalp. A combination of five herbs, known as "triphala" promotes healthy head and body growth.

It makes Hair Healthy and Shiny

Hair loses its luster and shine with age. It can also become frizzy and tangled due to environmental stresses like dust, pollution, and UV rays. Amla is believed to close hair cuticles removing the frizzy appearance and giving your hair a smooth, shiny look. Triphala treats dry hair and keeps it moisturized for a longer period.

Prevents Premature Greying

Triphala fights the free radicals in your hair that cause premature greying. Fighting and damaging these radicals makes sure that hair greying is controlled, thus keeping your locks black for a longer period. 

Reduces Frizz

Triphala has moisturizing properties, which makes it an excellent solution for dull, dry hair. It reduces frizz in hair, hydrates it, and gives it a smoother texture. If you are someone who suffers from dull, frizzy breakage-prone hair then Triphala should be your go-to Rasayna.

Reduces Split ends

Split Ends are a common problem faced by people these days. It usually occurs because of a lack of nourishment and continuous usage of chemical-laden products. Products with harsh chemicals take away essential nutrients from the hair, making them prone to split ends.

Ingredients in Triphala have essential nutrients that nourish hair from the roots reversing the damage. If your hair is properly moisturized and nourished, then the chances of split ends are eliminated.
