According to Ayurveda, regular massage using Ayurvedic oils increases blood circulation to the scalp. As hair grows out of little pockets in your skin called ‘follicles’, oil treatment activates the hair follicles, resulting in increased hair growth.

There are approximately 3,000,000 single hair follicles on the scalp; with each hair strand constantly undergoing a cycle of growing and falling out. Ayurvedic treatment for hair growth includes all natural ingredients that work together to nourish the hair and revitalize the scalp.

Being aware of the hair growth cycle can also be helpful in recognizing and understanding many of the problems you encounter with your hair.

Hair Growth Cycle

Hair follows a specific growth cycle with three distinct and concurrent phases: anagen, catagen and telogen phases. Each phase has specific characteristics that determines the length of the hair. All three phases occur simultaneously, thus one strand of hair may be in the anagen phase, while another may be in the telogen phase.

Your hair begins growing from a root in the bottom of the follicle. The root is made up of cells of protein.
Blood from the blood vessels in your scalp feeds the root which creates more cells and makes the hair grow.
The hair gets pushed up through the skin as it grows, passing an oil gland along the way. The oil gland adds oil to the hair and keeps it shiny and soft. It can make it greasy, too. That’s why you need to wash your hair.
