Hair Care

Question

My hair always looks lifeless and I am also plagued by falling hair. Please suggest some ways to strengthen my hair and increase its longevity and look.

Answer

Fat is the raw material for building not only bones but also hair and nails. Blood supplies vital nutrients and helps remove toxins from the scalp.

The life of each strand of hair parallels the life of the body as a whole — both depend on good nutrition. Dry hair and hair loss are generally signs of poor nutrition.

Diet and lifestyle tips for Healthy Hair

  • A pure, balanced diet and low-stress lifestyle increase the health and longevity of the hair.
  • The Transcendental Meditation® technique is highly effective in reducing stress.
  • The Liver Balance formula helps strengthen the liver, which supports healthy hair.
  • The Healthy Hair & Nails formula is especially formulated with keshya (good for the hair) herbs and helps support hair health and longevity.
  • The Calcium Support formula helps the body absorb more calcium from your diet. Calcium is valuable for building strong hair and nails.
  • Maharishi Ayurveda's natural hair care formulations cleanse and condition the hair without damaging it.
