Hair has been an attractive feature of beauty, often forming a significant part of an individual’s overall personality. It’s not a new buzz word in the beauty industry. This practice of pampering and hair care dates back to ancient times. In Ayurveda, our traditional system of medicine, hair is called ‘Kesh’ and herbs which are beneficial for hair are described as ‘Keshya’.
Here’s a list of ayurvedic ingredients that must make it to your hair care regime -
Almond (Prunus amygdalus) – Sweet almond oil provides nourishment to your hair and also helps them with strength. It is known to soften and moisturize dry hair.
