Why you should oil your hair regularly:
Krya advocates frequent oil massages for your hair as an important part of a healthy hair regimen. This follows classical Ayurvedic tradition which advocates the abhyanga as a way to regain good health. Generous and frequent oil application on your hair comes with many wonderful benefits. Besides improving the texture and health of your hair, frequent oiling keeps your scalp’s sebum levels in balance, improves circulation in the scalp, deep cleans your scalp and lifts dead cells and dirt, and stimulates the roots.
For naturally coloured hair: Hair and scalp must be oiled generously before every wash. In addition, scalp oiling twice a week helps stimulate natuarl and healthy hair growth.
How the Krya Vibrant Hair Colour Hair Oil is made:
The Krya Vibrant Hair Colour Hair Oil is made using a classical 3-part Ayurvedic method combining Taila (oil), Kashayam (Aqueous Extract) and Kalpa (paste) .This is a method unique to Indian traditional medicine, where the nutrients inside herbs are extracted in both water and oil – this ensures that every part of the herb is extracted into the oil, giving you an oil which is both powerful and “sookshma” (capable of penetrating even the minute cells). This process alone takes us between 6 – 8 hours of constant manual stirring to ensure the oil maintains a perfect consistency and the herbs do not get burned.
After processing the base oil and base herbs, we further add raw, cold pressed, organic oils and let the herbs steep for more time to ensure their nutrient properties are fully transferred to the oil. This cold infusion process takes us a further 7 days – so every batch of oil takes us 8 days to manufacture. At the end of the hot processing and the cold infusion process, the texture of the oil changes and the oil is extremely different from its basic nature – so even though heavy oils like sesame and coconut are used, the end oil is much lighter, less sticky and penetrates hair and scalp much faster than the base oil.
