Harnessing the power of plant-based ingredients to formulate remedies that are effective in controlling excessive hair fall

Combat, Cure and Care

with a fix that's as simple as a switch

We understand hair fall causes and control the loss with plant-based treatments that promise you:

Pollution can lead to oxidative stress which damages our scalp barrier. A weak scalp barrier can’t promote healthy hair growth. To heal and shield your scalp from these stressors, we introduce antioxidant-rich ingredients such as açaì berries, onion, camellia, plant keratin in abundance in our hair fall treatments.

A weak scalp and hair barrier can lead to hair breakage and excessive hair fall. Onion and its high sulphur content strengthen hair bonds and stimulates hair roots to promote healthy hair growth. We combine it with plant keratin to further strengthen the hair’s structural integrity.

Care comes from clean ingredients. We’ve carefully selected and combined açaì berries, plant keratin, onion, grapeseed oil, and other coconut-derived ingredients to care for your scalp. These mild, gentle, plant-based ingredients effectively nourish the scalp and promote hair regrowth.

Frequently Asked Questions

It’s normal to shed between 50-100 hair strands a day as the scalp regenerates hair approximately at the same rate. But if there is a loss of 130+ strands daily, then it can be considered as excessive hair shedding.

Too much stress releases a hormone in your body called cortisol. Cortisol signals our hair follicles to go in sleeping mode from growth phase, resulting in hair falling out. Managing stress helps reduce cortisol release. And making sure to not use soaps or bathing bars that aren’t pH balanced or formulated with harsh chemicals as both will agitate the skin further and strip it of essential moisture. Instead, use plant-based formulations that focus on remedying overall health of your scalp. The point is to reduce direct or indirect forms of stress that can affect scalp health.

Açaì berries are highly rich in fibre, heart-healthy fats, and antioxidants, especially anthocyanin which lowers oxidative stress and inflammation. They act as a great protector against hair breakage caused by prolonged exposure to heat, cold, stress, and pollution by neutralizing oxidative damage with its antioxidant-enriched properties. Plant keratin is generously featured in our treatments, especially hair fall and hair breakage treatments, to strengthen our hair and revive its elasticity to reduce hair breakage. use açaì of relief hair mask bar once a week, rinse and condition with açaì of relief shampoo bar and conditioner bar and follow it up by our açaì of relief scalp serum. if you still have excessive hair fall after 4-6 weeks, there may be other underlying causes to the hair fall you’re experiencing and you may want to seek a dermatologist and/or trichologist.

Yes, extended exposure to common air pollutants like dust and fuel particles weaken your hair follicles which leads to hair fall. This particulate matter decreases the level of keratin protein in hair follicle cells which is the very protein that is responsible for fueling hair growth in the first place.

Ageing is among the most common reason for hair fall in both men and women. The ageing process is accelerated by exposure to new-age stressors like pollution, radiation, extreme weather conditions, and stress. These factors cause free radical damage and age our skin faster, antioxidants successfully combat the damage caused by these stressors and provide further protection.

Male-pattern baldness is a hereditary condition that happens with ageing, also known as androgenic alopecia. Over time, the hairline recedes to form the shape: “M”. Hair fall can also be triggered in men when experiencing stress or illness. As we’re exposed to more environmental stressors due to our changing climate and exposure to pollution, it’s become more common for men to experience sudden, heavy shedding, also known as telogen effluvium.

Similar to men, female pattern baldness is one of the most common reason for hairfall in women. It’s a hereditary condition that causes hairfall in women which progresses with ageing. Exposure to environmental stressors can accelerate ageing and make hair fall worse. Other reasons for hairfall in women can be nutritional deficiencies, stress and side effects to medication.

Our plant-based shampoo bars are created to remedy specialised problems such as dandruff, hair fall etc. Using shampoo bars is easy, peasy, no squeezy. Solid in form, they are easy and gentle to glide over your scalp. Once you’ve applied the bar over your scalp, you can keep it aside in well-drained dish and start massaging your scalp. As you continue to massage your scalp, creamy, bubbly lather will form and cleanse the dirt, grime and problematic bacteria. And then you can easily rinse with water.

Shampoo bars are formulated to cleanse the scalp while conditioner bars are meant for moisturising hair ends. Our shampoo bars and conditioner bars contain plant-based ingredients that fortify the scalp barrier and prevent damage caused by environmental stressors. What’s more? They’re vegan, zero waste, plastic-free, water-saving, and cute. It’s where self-care meets planet care.
