Which Hair Oil Is Right For You?
Dry and frizzy tresses prone to split ends are signs of a vata dominant personality. Almond or sesame oils are very nourishing and help reduce stiffness and tightness in the scalp.
A head massage with coconut oil can slow down problems such as thinning and premature greying that are associated with an aggravated pitta dosha.
If you are predominantly a kapha type, your hair will tend to be thick and greasy. Olive oil which has purifying properties will help to keep pores open.
Those suffering from hair problems like dandruff, split ends or grey hairs should use medicated hair oils such as Neelibhringadi or Bhringraj.
