Our Ayurvedic Doctor Speaks

‘’Dandruff is a result of a combination of many imbalances together. Diet, lifestyle, hair products, hormones, etc. all contribute to the occurrence of dandruff. Although a Kshudra roga (minor disease), treating dandruff needs an expert comprehensive approach. ’’

Dr. Zeel Gandhi (Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine & Surgery), Chief Ayurvedic Doctor, Vedix

Can A Hair Mask Remove Dandruff?

Yes! Besides dealing with your dandruff condition efficiently, Ayurvedic and natural hair masks help to condition and nourish your hair deeply while balancing the elevated doshas. Moreover, unlike most hair products such as anti-dandruff shampoos in the market, hair masks do not have harsh chemicals which may damage your hair in the long run.
