Irritated by those dry, white flakes falling off your shoulder and that itching sensation? Do not worry. Ayurveda provides a number of treatments as well as home remedies that are known to be highly effective in the treatment of dandruff. Ayurveda categorizes the problem of dandruff as Shudra Roga, which appears because of an imbalance of all three doshas. The main doshas involved are Pitta and Vata. Pitta symbolizes heat or fire and Vata is dry and rough in Taseer or nature. In an aggravated state, both doshas make the production of specific impurities, known as ama, which are dry and heating in nature. These impurities build up in the deep tissues of the scalp and infect them. Contamination of the deep tissues and aggravated Vata-Pitta Dosha be the reason for itching and patches on the scalp. Due to which, the scalp shed more than normal amounts of dead epidermal cells, which causes dandruff.
The Ayurvedic approach of treatment usually involves pacifying Pitta and Vata through herbal medicines, as well as an appropriate diet and lifestyle plan. Also, unique herbs are administered to cleanse the body of accumulated digestive impurities.
