Ayurvedic herbs that promote healthy hair health include Eclipta alba and Gotu Kola. Eclipta alba is called "Bhringaraj"—literally, king of tresses. It nourishes the hair and offers resistance to stress as well. Brahmi, sometimes called Gotu Kola, also helps balance the mind and nourishes the hair and scalp. Since Ayurveda considers the health, color and luster of hair so dependent on overall mind/body health, synergistic Ayurvedic herbs are also wonderful for healthy hair.
