‘What is India’s greatest export?’ is a question that could be the subject of an endless debate. Between all the spices and riches, it is the wisdom of our ancient texts that seems to hold the most value for the world.

Indian hair care wisdom hasn’t skipped the global scanner either. From natural ingredients to ancient practices, the world is following the rich, varied rituals of India to get those thick, shiny locks synonymous with Indian Women.

Let’s take a look at 5 such Indian hair rituals that are trending internationally:

1. Yoga is one of the biggest health and fitness trends worldwide, with good reason. But one of its lesser known benefits is that it can work wonders for your hair! Yoga helps with the blood circulation to the scalp, which encourages hair growth. To know which postures enhance the lustre, quality and thickness of hair, click here.

 2. That Henna is the perfect natural alternative to synthetic hair dyes is one of the few things that the world agrees on. It is an international superstar, because not only is it a hair dye, but it comes with a dose of nourishment. Bonus benefits? It keeps the hair strong & lustrous, and your scalp cool & dandruff-free.

3. Much like turmeric latte and copper utensils, Ayurveda’s Oil pulling has bloggers and celebrities from around the world vouching for its benefits. But how can swishing oil in your mouth help your hair? By pulling out all the toxins from your system. Two weeks into it, you can expect a squeaky clean scalp, lesser strands on your pillow, and balanced doshas. To know more about oil pulling, click here.

4. Hygral fatigue is like a long day at work. It renders your hair wiry and lifeless thanks to harsh chemicals in your shampoo that causes the hair to expand and contract. Pre-poo conditions your hair, with oils, hair masks or packs before your hit the shower. While the world is just hearing about this hair care trend, oiling before a hair wash has been a quintessential part of the Indian hair care routine since ages.

5. Natural hair masks is slowly becoming the mantra in hair care. Well, we’ll have you know that it wasn’t out of the ordinary for our grandmothers to infuse homegrown plants and herbs into oils or making their own shampoo out of shikakai (Make your own shampoo)  a night before the wash.
