In Ayurveda, hair fall is referred to as ‘khalitya’ and premature graying of hair is termed as ‘palitya’. Both khalitya and Palitya are considered as pure paitik (arising out of ‘pitta’) disorders.
It means, when you continuously disturb ‘pitta’ (heat in your body), it can gray your hair. So, according to Ayurveda, if you consume pitta enhancing substances, your pitta aggravates and cause gray hair. From ayurvedic point of view, good hair growth is linked to one’s physical and mental health. When one is cheerful, the hair looks lively, alternatively when one is feeling depressed and pessimistic, the hair acquires a fallen and lifeless look.
