Ayurvedic herbs are originally from India, but are now known all over the world. Ayurvedic herbs are generally available at Indian Asian shops, but also online. Below I will explain useful source such as most famous Ayurvedic herbs that are very suitable for your hair. And after that I will explain a number of plant herbs that I personally also really like my hair.
Cassia obovata is also called neutral henna because of its conditioning and shine-giving properties for the hair. Cassia is a plant shrub that can reach a height of 2 meters. The leaves are harvested, dried and ground into a powder. This powder cleans your hair and turns lackluster, dull, bleached, damaged or bleached hair into healthy, thick and shiny hair, without changing the color. A transparent film forms around the hair shaft, smoothing out the hair cuticles and leaving your hair shiny and soft gold. Cassia is also very suitable for people with darker hair. Your hair becomes shiny, soft, conditioned and thicker without lightening. And gray / white locks transform cassia into golden-light blond hair.
Ashwagandha is an exotic Indian spice often referred to as ‘Indian ginseng’. It has been used as an Ayurvedic herb for thousands of years, but so far I can only find all the benefits of ashwagandha for your body online. And nothing for your hair yet. Ashwagandha contains various antioxidants, good fatty acids, amino acids and vitamin B4. Ashwagandha gives you energy, vitality and lowers the stress level in your body. Hair loss caused by stress could be reduced with Ashwagandha.
Ashwagandha contains a variety of anti-oxidants that purify the scalp. Also, blood circulation can be improved for healthier and stronger hair. The use of this powder in, for example, an Ayurvedic hair mask recipe ensures a more dandruff-free and oil-free scalp.
Moringa powder comes from the leaves of the moringa tree In India. In addition to vitamins A, B, C for your scalp, the powder also contains Zinc, Omega 3 and 9 fatty acids. These fats moisturize your hair and make it look fuller. Moringa also stimulates hair growth and conditions your hair in a pleasant way.
Aloe vera is a short-stemmed succulent that grows to a height of 60 cm to 1 meter. The leaves are thick and fleshy, green to gray-green in color. Aloe vera contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, C, E and folic acid. In addition, aloe vera contains many important minerals, such as calcium, chromium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, phosphorus, sodium and zinc. This makes Aloe vera very nice for our hair. Aloe vera powder can be added to your homemade shampoo or hair mask and will greatly nourish, soften and calm the scalp.
Hibiscus powder is ground Hibiscus rosa-sinensis leaves. The powder from these leaves is great for your hair. Hibiscus has a mild cleansing effect, it makes your hair thicker, shiny and it reduces hair loss. Hibiscus is healthy for the scalp and prevents dandruff.
Hibiscus has a high acidity and can therefore also be used as an acid rinse after washing with hair soap. Then add 1 tablespoon of hibiscus powder to about 500 ml of hot water. Let this cool down for a while and then, after washing with hair soap, pour the hibiscus extract over your hair.
