Ayurvedic Shampoos are made from herbs which means they are totally natural.
Traditionally, effective early shampoos was made by boiling Sapindus with dried Indian gooseberry (amla) and a few other herbs, using the strained extract. Sapindus, also known as soapberries or soapnuts, and its fruit pulp contain saponins which are a natural surfectant. The extract of soapberries, a tropical tree widespread in India, creates a lather and is also known for its detangling properties. It leaves the hair soft, shiny and manageable. Other herbs used for hair are shikakai (Acacia concinna), soapnuts (Sapindus), hibiscus flowers, henna, brahmi to name a few.
Shampoos are available as dry shampoos – combination of pure herbs or formulated. OmVeda has both dry shampoo and formulations for dry, normal and oily hair.
