5 potent Ayurvedic elixirs to help repair, strengthen and maintain healthier scalp, roots and regrowth.
HOW TO USE:
For the ultimate night-time repair ritual, apply 2-3 drops along sections of brushed, parted hair and massage as if shampooing
to cover roots and scalp, working a little through to ends. Once applied, sleep well, wake and wash as normal. Or leave in for 2hrs, as that
is sufficient time for the oil to penetrate and nourish scalp and roots and then wash as normal. Use twice weekly for the
first six weeks and weekly thereafter.
Amla high in tannin compounds and one of the worlds most powerful antioxidants with 20 times the concentrated vitamin C of an orange. Amla infuses hair with nutrition that protects against environmental
aggressors, while working to strengthen follicles, promote growth and diminish split ends, dryness and dandruff.
Bringraj is a calming oil and a little applied before bed helps improve sleep patterns and reduce stress. In a study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology in 2009 tests determined that treatment with
bhringraj extract helped stimulate hair growth. Additionally, a 2008 study from the Archives of Dermatological Research found that bringraj extract was more effective than minoxidil (commonly used in
the treatment of hair loss) in promoting hair growth.
Brahmi is rich in saponins and tannins and these powerful antioxidants help improve hair thickness and gloss while eliminating dandruff, reducing split ends and slowing signs of premature greying and discolouration.
Moringa, with an impressive oleic acid content of 72%, contains
47 potent antioxidants, 36 anti-inflammatory compounds, 18 essential amino acids, 7 x the vitamin C of an orange, 3 times the iron of an almond, 4 x the calcium of milk and twice as much vitamin A as found in a carrot. The incredible rejuvenating properties of this light, luxurious oil penetrate deeply into scalp and follicles so depleted minerals and vitamins can repair and revive naturally.
