Get reacquainted with your hairitage.
Hairloom is an ode to a practice called hair oiling that I picked up from my grandmother. A tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation for so many Indians around the world. This is a pre-shampoo oil and plant extract blend infused with essential oils for hair health.
I've chosen two traditional ways of infusing oils. Using the power of sunlight over a number of days to slowly bring out the nutrients from a carefully curated selection of organic herbs and gentle heat infusion.
"Ashwagandha, which is one of the most powerful Ayurvedic herbs, balances all the three doshas in your body. It is especially a good pacifier of aggravated Kapha and Vata doshas, which in turn helps you stop the hair loss caused due to the imbalance of these doshas.
Ashwagandha as a natural adaptogenic herb, helps in controlling chronic stress and hormonal imbalances, which are the key reasons behind ‘telogen effluvium’ hair loss in your body. Also, the herb benefits all Ayurvedic hair types.
The flavonoids of ashwagandha are a rich source of protein, vitamin C, iron, glucose, tannins, potassium, and nitrate, which are essential components for healthy hair growth. Ashwagandha improves blood circulation in your scalp which in turn supports the delivery of the nutrients to your follicles."
"Fenugreek— also known as methi—has been used by Chinese and Ayurvedic medicinal systems for centuries. It is a rich source of vitamins A, K & C, folic acid, potassium, calcium, iron, and protein, which are essential nutrients for hair growth.
Additionally, fenugreek promotes a healthy scalp environment which contributes to hair growth. It also soothes scalp inflammation, treats dandruff, strengthens hair, and prevents shedding.
Fenugreek is a rich source of iron and protein, which are essential nutrients for hair. Protein treatments are especially helpful for those with dry or damaged hair, as they help to repair the hair shaft.
In general, anyone can benefit from the protein and anti-inflammatory properties found in fenugreek. Those with coarse or curly hair may notice added softness and shine."
The result is a bright yellow hue mix with an earthy, herbaceous scent. Embrace your natural hair.
Treat it well.
