Food For Hair: Bhringraj
In ancient India, bathing rituals were elaborate and special emphasis was given to hair care. Apprentices would collect all the ingredients that an Ayurvedic physician used to prescribe, which included leaves of the Brahmi plant, Jatamansi (or spikenard), Amla, and many others.
All these herbs and roots were then soaked in Coconut oil for a day or two until the oil became green. The herb enriched oil was then blended over slow fire for a residual paste, which was then strained to be applied onto hair every night.
Such herbal pastes were warmed and stored in copper vessels which imparted their own nutritional properties to the oil.
One such herbal paste was made using Bhringraj oil -also known as ‘Food for Hair’. Named for its deeply nourishing properties, Indians have used Bhringraj oil for hair growth and lustrous tresses for centuries.
While such elaborate rituals may seem a cumbersome exercise in today’s world, the quest for healthy and natural, beautiful hair still remains the same, and Ayurvedic skincare products promise you the same.
