A certain amount of hair loss is considered normal, as old strands are replaced by new. When hair loss is excessive, however, it is a symptom of imbalance. In the west, this condition is called alopecia, and in Ayurveda, it called khalitya. According to Ayurveda, hair is a byproduct of bone formation and the tissue responsible for building bones is also responsible for the growth of hair; therefore the remedies are targeted at strengthening bone tissue.  Early hair loss is related to body type and the balance of the mind-body constitution (doshas). People who have excess Pitta in their body are likely to lose their hair early in life, or have prematurely thin or gray hair. Excess Pitta in the sebaceous gland, at the root of the hair, or folliculitis can lead to hair loss.

             Ayurvedic treatment of hair loss is aimed at pacification of Pitta through a customized diet and lifestyle regime, along with medication. A combination of diet, herbs, oil massage, meditation, breathing, and yoga can be beneficial in addressing the problem of hair loss and premature graying of hair.

Shirodhara

Shirodhara (shiro-dar-a), the term comes from the Sanskrit word shiras meaning "head" and dhara meaning "flow."  It is a classical and a well-established ayurvedic procedure of slowly and steadily dripping medicated oil or other liquids on the forehead. Sometimes all one needs to encourage new hair growth is to fully hydrate the skin and make way for new to strands to flourish.
