Indulekha’s Remedies are Backed by Science


Indulekha’s strength lies in addressing hairfall at the root. Our remedies are perfected using centuries of Ayurvedic wisdom, and proven by clinical evidence.

One of the major reasons hairfall goes untreated is because we think it’s temporary and easily fixable – we search for quick answers, not lasting ones. But understanding Hair Loss can help.

Hair Loss refers to reduced hair on the scalp. Everyone experiences some Hairfall (around 50-150 strands daily), but when hair grows back slower than it falls, that is known as hair loss.

Excess Hairfall can be explained by the Hair Growth Cycle – Each cycle consists of long growth (Anagen), short transition (Catagen) and a short rest (Telogen). At the end of the cycle, the hair falls out (Exogen) and a new hair begins growing from the same follicle.

When the phases are in balance, natural amounts of hairfall occur. When the phases are imbalanced, it causes excess hairfall.

Hairfall can be caused for several reasons, both internal and external.

• Poor blood circulation
• Lack of nutrition
• Infection
• Drugs
• Pregnancy
• Pollution
• Hyperthyroidism
• Involutional alopecia
• Allergies
• Stress
• Lack of exercise
• Lack of sleep
