Ayurveda treatment starts with diagnosis of the body type and to find out which of the three doshas namely Vata, Pitta, kapha are dominant in the body. Ayurveda is about balancing the three doshas. Usually we have one or 2 dominant doshas.
In Layman’s terms vata refers to air, pitta to fire and kapha to water. Vata plays a role in functioning of the nervous system, pitta in digestion and metabolism and kapha plays a role in lubrication of joints, functioning of immune system and protection of body tissues. Experts say hair fall is related to aggravation of pitta dosha.
Various factors such as history of any major illness, extreme weight loss, below normal iron level, irregular diet and thyroid and other hormonal imbalances and stress, alone or in combination can lead to hair fall and hair loss.
