Hair loss has been a problem in everyone’s life. Some are over it, and some are still stuck with it. Many of them opt for a hair transplantation procedure, while some accept hair loss. The number of people going for hair transplants is increasing every year, and research says- 37% of the world’s population opt for hair transplants every year.
This unique surgery has made many people confident. Surgeons guarantee a lifetime of healthy transplanted hair. There are a few cases in which individuals may again start shedding hair, leading to baldness. These cases are few but may exist.
Here, the question is, why does hair fall re-occur? What are the causes of hair loss after transplantation? Is there any treatment that reverses hair loss permanently? Can hair loss be managed naturally after hair transplantation surgery?
The answer to all of the above questions is “YES”.
This is possible by the virtue of Ayurveda. It is the centuries-old medicinal branch that focuses on the elimination of the root cause of the condition. The same goes for hair loss conditions. Hair loss is the result of heredity, hormonal changes, and other underlying conditions. It is also a normal response to aging.
What is the root cause of hair loss?
According to Ayurveda, hair loss is caused due to an imbalance in doshas, i.e., Vata, Pitta, and Kapha doshas. More specifically, it is related to an imbalance in Pitta dosha, as it is associated with the digestion process. When Pitta dosha is vitiated, the toxins enter the bloodstream and accumulate in the body. These toxins hinder the normal functioning of the body and lead to health conditions. Further, these underlying conditions affect the growth of hair, as they may rupture hair follicles. Once hair follicles are ruptured, there is no going back.
This is the time when people opt for hair transplantation, which indeed is the best option. But what next? Is the underlying condition cured? Are the toxins from the body eliminated? Can hair loss return? Can transplanted follicles be damaged again?
The answer depends on the individual. In many cases, individuals won’t be bald again. In other cases, yes, they can go bald again. This is due to an underlying condition. What is the treatment for hair loss after transplantation?
As the reason for hair loss is clear, what we have to focus on is eliminating the root cause of hair loss. This is done by reversing the effects of vitiated Pitta dosha and other doshas (this purely depends on the underlying condition). Further, Pitta dosha vitiates the blood.

a. Purification of blood by Raktamokshana therapy (leech therapy) Raktamokshana is a powerful blood purification therapy that involves the carefully timed removal of minute amounts of blood to counteract the buildup of Pitta toxins caused by numerous blood-borne illnesses. This is because Raktamokshana reduces the amount of elevated Pitta dosha, which in turn alleviates Pitta-related disorders.
In this therapy, the therapeutic leech is applied to the head and is made to stay there. After the leech has finished drawing blood from the area, it either splits on its own or can be handled and removed by sprinkling some herbal medicine. The treatment is followed
by proper dressing.
Shirodhara, which combines the words Shiro, which means head, and Dhara, which means flow, entails applying herbal oil to the forehead in order to promote calmness and relaxation. It is regarded as a purification therapy that can calm your mind, soothe your soul, and have a calming influence on your neurological system. It aids in body relaxation and pitta dosha rebalancing. The oil is directly advantageous for the hair. In this therapy, the oil or milk is poured on the forehead at the chakra point between the eyebrows, where all the nerves meet. The dhara is maintained with a continuous flow. The head and scalp are massaged during and after the procedure, and later the
individual can rest for an hour. Shirodhara uses a special herbal oil known as ksheerabala Thailand. The choice of oils also depends on the patient’s condition and body composition.
2. Internal Therapies
This involves nothing but the maintenance of a healthy lifestyle. Greater emphasis is given to the intake of proteins. Keratin protein is a major component of hair. Protein lessens the porosity of your hair. Due to its porous texture and gaps, porous hair is more prone to hair damage. This is so that various elements, such as colors, pollutants, etc., can easily be absorbed into the
gaps. Your hair is shielded from the numerous adverse effects of chemicals that may be present in your hair dyes if it contains a sufficient amount of protein. Since protein is the foundation of your hair and is crucial for repairing damaged hair tissues, it ensures the longevity and volume of your hair.
Thus, a healthy protein-rich diet is suggested to every individual. A healthy lifestyle with a combination of a healthy diet, breathing exercises, yoga, meditation, and oil massage on the scalp can help in boosting hair health.
