Make DIY Hair Masks With Bhringraj for Unmanageable Hair

When your hair is healthy, it generally follows a pattern of growth. This pattern can be straight, curly, or wavy, depending on your genetic makeup. Ayurveda strongly equates health with beauty, and so, healthy hair, in spite of its colour, length or texture is always beautiful. On the contrary, unhealthy hair may appear unruly and frizzy, making it unmanageable. Due to its impaired protein structure, unmanageable hair seems to have a mind of its own. Bhringraj (Eclipta alba) is a beneficial herb that has both Keshya and Rasayana properties. Read on as Dr. Zeel Gandhi, Ayurvedic Doctor and Formulator at Vedix shares a DIY bhringraj hair mask to manage frizzy hair.

A Keshya herb has a strong positive effect on the growth, maintenance, and health of the hair. It is now proven that active compounds (Wedelolactone and dimethyl wedelolactone) in Bhringraj aid hair growth and arrest hair fall.

A Rasayana herb can be described as one having profound anti-ageing potential. Ayurveda enlists different kinds of Rasayanas for various health benefits. For example, Brahmi and Yashtimadhu are excellent for maintaining brain health and memory, while Ashwagandha is excellent for strength and is a renowned aphrodisiac. Likewise, Bhringraj is a Rasayana for hair, skin, liver, and lungs.
