Krya Kids Hair Oil - Classic


Young children need to oil the hair regularly, according to Ayurveda. This is because from 0 – 7 years, children experience extremely rapid brain development as their brain expands in weight & volume and new neutral pathways are formed.  Hence, hair oiling for children is an excellent Dinacharya. It helps support the rapid brain growth that children experience, and also nourishes the eyes, helping maintain health & harmony.

To help support this rapid brain growth, Ayurveda asks hair oil formulae for babies and children to incorporate special herbs. Both Medhya (intelligence) enhancing and eye nourishing herbs should be included to reduce strain in the eyes and the brain. Krya follows this edict extremely seriously.

The Krya Classic Kids Hair Oil is designed to support the rapid brain growth that children experience, support and nourish the eyes and also provide balanced nourishment for healthy scalp and good quality hair growth. This variant is designed for children with normal – oily scalp, which is pitta prakriti dominant. This hair oil balances excess sebum, nourishes the scalp, supports good quality and healthy hair growth.

The Krya Classic Kids Hair Oil is made in the classical Tila Paka Process over 3+ days using fresh plant juices, fresh herb pastes and kashayas / decocotions all cooked together in cold pressed organic oils.

This product is available in both  50 ml & 100 ml sizes. All of Krya’s products are vegan & cruelty-free and do NOT contain any synthetic or animal origin ingredients. All of Krya’s products are wholesome, natural, and free from synthetics, chemicals & toxins.

The Krya Kids Hair Oil Classic:

Is designed for hair and scalp which is normal to oily, displaying a greater dominance of Pitta prakriti. This hair oil helps balance aggravated Pitta dosha and excess sebum, nourishes scalp and hair, supports healthy brain development, and calms and soothes the young, growing brain.

The benefits of hair oil for your Child:

  • At Krya, we recommend the regular and frequent use of a good quality hair oil for adults. However, the practice of oiling in Indian traditional medicine gives many other health benefits apart from a healthy head of hair. Oiling the scalp and hair is considered extremely beneficial to reduce excess pitta in the body. Oiling also helps calms down the entire body, relaxes the nerves and aids in giving sound and restful sleep.
  • For babies and children, oiling acts as an extra support to their as-yet under developed body and organ systems.  A good hair oil stimulates healthy hair growth, repairs the damage caused by harsh shampoos, and relaxes the body aiding sound sleep. Most importantly, it helps support the rapid development of the brain at this stage, helping calm excited pitta and vata dosha in the brain.
  • Regular oil application on your child’s hair comes with many wonderful benefits. Besides improving the texture and health of the hair, oiling keeps the scalp’s sebum levels in balance, improves circulation in the scalp, deep cleans the scalp and lifts dead cells and dirt, and stimulates the roots.
  • In addition, the Krya Kids Hair Oil – Classic helps balance aggravated Pitta – so this controls the tendency of the scalp to become greasy, and controls build up of “heat” generated in the scalp.

Difference between the Krya Kids hair oils and the Krya adult hair oils

  • The Krya Kids hair oil is formulated differently from the Krya Adults hair oil. We formulate based on Ayurvedic principles of using herbs that support the development of “medhya” (intellect), that support the development of the brain, and also help calm down the brain which is excited by the new stimuli it received every day, especially at this stage of growth.
  • Our adult range of hair oils contain a slightly different combination of herbs. We also use a much higher proportion of herbs in order to repair the damage often seen on adult hair and scalp.
  • The Krya Kids hair oil uses high proportion of ayurvedic herbs like brahmi, ashwagandha, vacha, guduchi, etc. Brahmi helps boost memory and aids neurological development. It also relaxes and cools the scalp and removes stress and excess pitta.

 How the Krya Kids oil – Classic is made :

  • The Krya Kids Hair Oil – Classic 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.


The Krya Kids hair oils are specially formulated hair oils, designed to support the rapidly growing brains of young children which are excited by the various visual , audio, audio visual, tactile and sensory stimuli they are exposed to in their phase of active learning, curiosity and exploration.

Ayurveda tells us that we should support these young brains by regularly oiling and calming down the brain which can get besieged by excited pitta and vata dosha leading to excess heat build up in the body. We are also advised to use brain and medhya supporting sweet and nourishing herbs while formulating these oils, apart from scalp nourishing and hair growth encouraging herbs.

So here are some suggestions to get the best out of your Krya Kids hair oil:

  • Oil your child’s scalp regularly – we recommend oiling everyday to help support and balance your child
  • Oil in small quantities: we recommend using 1/4 teaspoon of oil and gently oil the scalp every day
  • Oiling for children is best done in the morning before they go to school, or in the early evening after they come back (between 3 – 5 pm). avoid oiling after sunset or at night to prevent Kapha aggravation
  • Avoid hair oiling if your child has a cold, fever, is very tired, etc
  • Avoid hair oiling immediately after sun exposure or swimming – allow the body to naturally cool down for atleast 45 minutes before oiling
  • If your child is prone to colds, we suggest warming the hair oil before use. This also helps the oil penetrate better into the scalp.
  • We recommend washing the hair not more than twice a week with the recommended Krya Kids hairwash.
  • A weekly full body abhyanga is excellent for improving children’s strength and immunity – additionally this can be done every week for your child


The Krya Kids Hair Oil -Classic is a 25 ingredient classic ayurvedic hair oil made in the traditional 3 part Tila Paka Method.

In this method, we extract herbs in different formats like Swarasas (fresh juices), Kashayas (boiled decoctions), Hima (Cold infusions) and Kalpa (wet fresh pastes), depending upon the nature of the herb and whether we want to extract oil soluble or water soluble nutrients.

Ayurvedic tila paka method is an efficient nutrient extracting oil method Ayurveda that we follow at Krya

Together these herb extracts are slow cooked for 3+ days, in a mixture of cold pressed organic plant oils until they fully infuse into the oils.  This slow cooking process comes from the ancient Ayurvedic texts as a method to fully infuse hair and skin oils with the complete range of botanical nutrients from herbs. The process is extremely laborious and very few companies undertake this process today.

Questions and answers of the customers

  1. A For a 6 month old child, please use the Krya baby hair oil instead. This is the link:
  2. A Our hair oil is made in the ayurvedic tila paka veedhi and cooked between 3-5 days. This makes the hair oil stable for upto 3 years. We do not add any preservatives , stabilizers, additives, colours or any other type of chemical in any of our products. Please note that oils by their nature alreday act as a natural preservative: so it is possible for a natural oil (non edible) to have a shelf life of 3 years. For edible cold pressed oils, as there is naturally high moisture there, they go rancid within 6 months. A hair oil has this moisture removed from it due to the extensive manufacturing process we follow. I hope this is clear? IF you have further doubts please email us :
  3. A Yes you can . We have updated the description to include all the ingredients that go into the product. Please note that the current product contains 25 ingredients and not 40+ ingredients.
