DRY, DARK, FRIZZY HAIR
WHAT DOES IT MEAN? WHAT'S CAUSING IT? WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Are you prone to a problem with 'Dry, dark, frizzy hair'?
Dry, dark, frizzy hair appears unruly with frayed and split ends. It tends to be a trait of Vata type individuals.
The health of the hair reflects overall tissue quality throughout the body, particularly the bone tissue (asthi dhatu). Dry, frizzy hair can be a sign of dryness, deficiency, and dehydration in the body.
Regular scalp massage with castor oil rehydrates the hair and helps combat unwanted frizz. Bhringraj can be taken internally as a restorative tonic for bone tissue. It may also be used as an oil for scalp massage to nourish the hair follicles. Ensure adequate hydration by sipping warm water with a squeeze of lime juice and a pinch of mineral salt. Make sure to keep warm so circulation to surface of the body will be encouraged.

HOW AYURVEDA WORKSARE YOU WONDERING HOW AYURVEDA CAN HELP YOU?
WHY IS AYURVEDA THE RIGHT SOLUTION?Ayurveda strengthens the body, in addition to addressing the disorder. It take a holistic, systemic approach, instead of myopically focusing on the disorder in question. Ayurveda shows a person how to interpret signs and symptoms of imbalance, and how to address them using materials from home, so they can optimize their health on a continual basis. You can't take the doctor home with you, but you can take Ayurveda home with you. Ayurveda is the most advanced and easy to use home system for self healing with an exceptional focus on digestion.
HOW DOES AYURVEDA WORK?Ayurveda starts by identifying your body type, which identifies certain tendencies in your body to get sick (as well as identifying your strengths). It uses body type to determine the likely root causes of your disorders. Next, Ayurveda analyzes the nature of your disorder. It fits all your signs and symptoms into a pattern, expressed as a combination of gunas / qualities. For example, you may have a heat disorder, a cold disorder, or an oily disorder, etc. This simple categorical approach shows you how to correct systemic imbalances and strengthen your body as a whole.
On Joyful Belly, we've created an extensive categorization of food so you can easily match food to your imbalances (gunas). By eating an optimal diet that balances your gunas, your whole body is strengthened and the conditions that created the disorder are removed. Once the root causes of the disease are removed, the disease lessens in strength or disappears altogether. Additional remedies - such as herbs and lifestyle practices - focused on the specific disorder, can greatly enhance your healing.
