'Hair Longevity' How To Keep Your Hair Healthy As You Age

We are excited to be at the forefront of bridging this ancient wisdom and Ayurvedic botanicals for modern hair health. The value in Ayurveda is in its holistic, nature-based, prevention and health promotion approach. Ayurveda spoke of longevity also known as Rasayana over 5,000 years ago, a topic the west has only started to talk about now. Unique to Ayurveda, Rasayana means “that which supports life essence.” As we age, our hair follicles go through a process called miniaturization, in which their size decreases over time and hair can become dry, brittle, and prone to breakage. And there’s also graying due to pigment loss. Hair loss and thinning are completely normal. In fact, it’s a natural part of life. But, there are many other factors that can contribute whether it’s caused by hereditary, a diet deficiency, stress, menopause, postpartum breakage, a current health issue, medication, exposure to environmental toxins or pollution the list is many. Ayurveda aims to address the root cause of the problem—which often originates well beneath the surface. 

Rasayana helps to prevent the effect of ageing and provides longevity, improves mental and intellectual competence, preservation of youthfulness, increased luster, body complexion and glow of the skin, healthy condition of voice, excellent potentiality of the body and the sense-organs. Through specialized use of herbs, herbomineral formulations, personalized diet and lifestyle protocols designed to nourish, support and bring balance to your elemental (Dosha) mind/body. Equally as critical as caring for the scalp in the long-term is caring for the strands. Over time, exposure to heat and environmental factors can exacerbate dryness, thinning, and breakage. You'll want to avoid or minimize the five types of damage including damage from chemical services, heat styling, mechanical friction, environment, and pollution. 

Rasayana herbs are adaptogenic and rejuvenative, only a few belonging to this specialized category. Hair longevity herbs like Ashwagandha, Shatavari, Brahmi, Tulsi, Amla and Turmeric can be found in all of our hair wellness shampoo and conditioner formulas. If we start using products that can actually make a difference in our hair and scalp health, we maintain the beauty of our hair longer. While you can’t stop your hair from aging, you can take certain measures to help keep it as healthy as possible.
