A crown of thick, wavy, shiny hair adds a lot to one’s personality. Beautiful hair makes you feel confident, boosting one’s self esteem. Healthy hair not only makes you look vibrant but also exhibits your inner health! Though, diet and lifestyle play a crucial role in deciding hair quality, external care also contributes a lot in enhancing hair excellence.

In the race of oodles of hair care products hitting the markets every day, Ayurvedic hair care products are matchless. The instant benefits with no side effects make the these products unparallel in the crowd.

Ayurvedic shampoo and other hair care products are made up of natural oils, herbs and organics. The natural ingredients without any side effects treat all the hair related problems and give you the desired results in the most cost effective way.

Many commercial shampoos contain harmful chemicals, which might give instant shine and fluffiness to your hair but perhaps become more hazardous in the later run! The chemicals used in many of the conventional hair care products, weaken the hairs’ inner health, leading to problems like premature greying, hair loss, unhealthy scalp and many more. Hair colours, which possibly make you feel on the seventh heaven for the initial few days, have harmful aftermaths. High ammonia content in such products not only makes your hair dull and lifeless but also affects your eyes with its strong smell.

The Ayurvedic science of healing offers you ways of enhancing your external and internal beauty, naturally. Every Ayurvedic healing begins with the correction of one’s diet while, regular Yoga and adequate rest facilitates the overall healing of the body. The discipline of food, exercise and rest will involuntarily bring a significant change in your overall personality. Whilst the change is gradual , it is everlasting. Furthermore the external use of the related Ayurvedic products helps in achieving still better results.

Ayurvedic Shampoo For All hair Types

No matter what hair type you are blessed with, Aurveda shampoos offer complete hair nourishment, catering to the needs of every hair type. The use of the Indian herb “Shikakai”, is underlined in Ayurveda because of its remarkable benefits. These herbal shampoos use’s Shikakai as the base ingredient. The herb strengthens the hair, improves hair texture and makes them feel soft. The other prime ingredient of Ayurveda hair care is “Reetha” which is a natural cleanser. It removes the dust and dirt from your hair without damaging the layer of natural oil on the surface of the scalp.

Herbal Shampoo For A Greasy Scalp

The neem extract used with the combination of Shikakai and Reetha in the shampoo treats the greasy scalp gently. The neem leaves or the Margosa leaves have anti fungal and anti bacterial properties which treat the scalp for grease and excess oil. This organic shampoo inhibits the occurrence of dandruff and improves hair quality.


Colouring of hair is trend since centuries . Retrieving the benefits from the ancient science of Ayurveda, the organic shampoos contain henna extracts. The low foaming henna based ayurvedic shampoo imparts a natural red tone to your hair giving them a natural shine and bounce. This hair colour lasts longer than any other chemical hair colour without damaging your hair quality. Rather, henna, being a natural conditioner, makes your hair feel soft and lustrous.

Oil Shampoo For Dry Hair
