Excessive shedding of dead skin from the scalp is known as Dandruff. Skin cells die and flake off, so a small amount of flaking is normal. Usually, the scalp skin dies and flakes off in a month, while in those suffering from Dandruff, this happens every 2-7 days. Apart from being a physical condition, dandruff is also associated with social and self-esteem problems in many individuals. With proper care and Dandruff treatment, you can get relief from the problem.
In minor cases, anti-dandruff home remedy can be effective, however, if there is an underlying cause behind it then root-cause treatment personalized for your body type and existing health conditions is the right way to go. To know how Jiva can help you with medicine, diet and specialised home remedy, consult with a Jiva doctor today.
Ayurveda places the problem of dandruff in the category of Shudra Roga, which appears due to an imbalance of all three doshas (Ayurvedichumor). The primary doshas involved are Pitta and Vata. Pitta is an Ayurvedichumour which symbolizes heat or fire and Vata is dry and rough in nature. In an aggravated state, both doshas cause production of specific impurities, called ama, which are dry and heating in nature. These impurities accumulate in the deep tissues of scalp and contaminate them. Contamination of the deep tissues and aggravated Vata-Pitta Dosha cause itching and patches on scalp. Due to these factors, the scalp sheds larger than normal amounts of dead epidermal cells, which leads to the problem of dandruff. In such cases a simple home remedy cannot yield effective results. You will need customized herbal medicine and diet plans.
Ayurvedic Dandruff treatment aims at pacifying Pitta and Vata through herbal medicines, as well as a tailor-made diet and lifestyle plan. Also, special herbal home remedy for internal cleansing of the gut is also recommended depending on the stage of the problem. This is later complimented with Ayurvedic medicines and diet.
