The market is saturated with haircare products—an unending variety of formulations that promise to leave your tresses looking silky, shiny, and smooth. But what many of these offerings are doing is concealing hair troubles rather than correcting them.
Ancient Indian texts depict women with long lustrous hair and even today, we look to that part of the world for the most enviable manes. For Indian women, haircare is incredibly integrated into the culture and viewed as an extension of skincare. In India, there are long-standing traditions of nourishing strands just as one cares for the skin, committing to regular preventive practices rather than the occasional treatment.
One essential element of traditional Indian haircare is hair oil. Indian women will massage cold-pressed oils into their hair a few times each week. Hair oils nourish the scalp and strands, seal damaged cuticles, restore moisture-retaining properties, and act as an effective heat-protectant when styling. The Ayurvedic practice has gained a cult following in the beauty world as hair oils have become a multitasking favorite for women of all backgrounds.
For a natural approach to hair oils, Ancient Indian remedies include cold-pressed sunflower oil to protect hair against environmental wear and organic jasmine oil to nourish the scalp and provide antifungal properties. Ranavat’s Mighty Majesty formula is infused with both of these power players as well as organic amla extract—one of the most important herbs in Ayurvedic medicine—to deliver powerful vitamins and minerals to soothe strands and nourish the scalp. Just a few drops of the fortifying hair serum can smooth wet or dry hair, taming frizz and flyaways, or serve as a restorative treatment when massaged into the scalp to condition overnight. As you develop your self-care ritual, be sure to honor your hair just as you do your skin. Everyone deserves hair that’s fit for a crown.
