From the very beginning, Ayurvedic experts always focused on maintaining a proper balance between the body, mind and soul. They have believed that health starts from within, which is true. As the heat is increasing day by day and the summers are just round the corner, it is difficult to keep our skin and hair healthy and gorgeous. According to Ayurveda, the health of every hair on your scalp represents the health of your whole body and both depend on a nutritious diet. Other than that, the health of your beautiful and luscious hair depends on the doshas (the body-mind constitution), stress, pollution, hormonal changes and the weather as well.

With the over-exposure of skin and hair to the sun in the summer season, it is normal to have sweaty hair, dandruff and rough scalp. As much as we all love the summers, this season also damages our body and hair to a great extent. To put an end to all of this, there are Ayurvedic formulated remedies and DIY hair masks that can help us reverse all the damage. Ayurveda is all about uniqueness and it celebrates individuality by focusing on all types of hair and skin textures.
