Brahmi is a herb which has been recommended in Ayurveda as a hair conditioning product for ages. If your hair needs repair, it is weak and dull, you struggle with dandruff, your hair falls out and doesn’t want to grow – you must try out hair oiling with brahmi.
Brahmi is suitable for hair oiling when you combine it with a proper oil or a blend of oils. There are numerous oils that work in hair care. Unfortunately: not every oil is good for a given hair type. Therefore, you should learn about the properties of oils and identify your hair porosity. To put it simply, hair porosity gives you the information on how damaged your hair is – it tells you about the condition of your hair cuticles. The more raised the cuticles, the more damaged the hair (it absorbs lots of toxins and chemicals included in cosmetics, it is weak and thin, it gets damaged easily and air-dries very quickly). Such hair is known as high porosity hair. The cuticles of healthy, strong and well-kept hair are tightly bound together. It is hard to destroy such hair but it also needs proper care. It is easy to overburden low porosity hair and make it greasy so it also needs a well-chosen oil. Brahmi is a deeply nourishing herb which makes an ideal blend with all kinds of oils. The big asset of brahmi is also the fact that it works for all hair types. If you want to provide your hair with the best care possible, you simply have to combine it with a suitable oil.
Brahmi for low porosity hair – blend it with coconut oil, babassu oil, palm oil.
Brahmi for medium/normal porosity hair – blend it with almond oil, macadamia oil, peanut oil, sesame oil, argan oil, avocado oil.
Brahmi for high porosity hair – blend it with grapeseed oil, sunflower oil, linseed oil, pumpkin oil, black seed oil, corn oil.
