Why does hair fall increase and hair growth slow down after an illness?
Ayurveda terms severe hairfall as “Indralupta” – a condition where there is sudden and extreme shedding of hair and the normal pattern of growth of hair is also restricted. The causes of this kind of sudden hairfall are many and could include shock, extreme grief, damaging chemical treatments, a sudden change in diet or lifestyle and illnesses.
In the case of severe illnesses, we see much slower results because the entire body has been left unsettled and stressed due to the illness itself and the medication used. For example, one of our consumers came to us after a surgery of the GI tract where a small portion of her large intestine was operated upon and removed because of a tumerous growth. Obviously in the above case, the body’s metabolism and nutritional intake is itself damaged. In times like these the very last system to be nurtured is the hair and skin as the body reserves its limited nutrition for extremely important organ systems. Therefore due to severely restricted nutrient availability and internal damage, there will be sudden hairfall without the normal growth pattern to make up for the loss.
Apart from this, severe illnesses also mean that severe medication is used. Depending upon the illness, you may have immune system suppressing medication, or certain other kinds of steroids and a heavy dose of antibiotics being used. This upsets the body’s natural microbiome and its response to the external environment. A natural fallout of these illnesses is extreme and severe hair loss where you lose upto half your hair’s volume and growth is slow.
Who should buy the Krya Intense Hairfall system/ range of products ?
You should buy this range of products if you have:
1. Sudden severe hairfall with high loss of volume – for example you can see a loss upwards of 15% in hair volume and this hair fall is sudden and intensive
2. Extremely Slow hair growth – you can see this by length that remains static without growth and visible thinning or bald patches
3. Week rooted hair that falls easily when washed, tugged , combed or brushed. You will be able to see the hair bulb as a white bulb at the root of the hair when it falls.
and this hairfall can be traced to the following:
1. Long term illness like TB, Auto Immune disorders, PCOD
3. Invasive and Intensive therapy like radiation therapy, Chemotherapy, Prescription steroids, etc.

We strongly recommend a regular abhyanga for good body health and hair health. A regular abhyanga detoxifies the body, balances the doshas , and improves skin and hair health dramatically. An abhyanga is recommended to be done on Tuesdays and Fridays for Women and on Wednesdays & Saturdays for Men.
The Krya Abhyanga Oil can be used for Abyanga for adults and the Krya ubtans should be used post abhyanga to wash off the excess oil, and clean the skin extremely well. An abhyanga is best combined with a hair oiling and wash.
