Your Dosha body-type is Pitta

Doshas

Ayurveda is the ancient holistic system of health developed in India 5,000 years ago. Its name literally means "life knowledge." Ayurveda defines the human body in three body types, called Doshas.

There are 3 Doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

Each one of us as the 3 Dosha energies in different proportions. One combination is not better than another. Knowing your dosha is a tool to better understand how to best take care of your health and beauty.

Your Dosha is Pitta


Pitta reflects the qualities of fire and water. Dosha Pitta people radiate confidence, courage, and ambition.

Pittas typically have a medium, athletic build, along with penetrating eyes and direct speech. They can tolerate most foods and usually consume a lot of them. Pittas are sensitive to heat, becoming out of balance when overheated.

  • Assumes leadership roles
  • Seeks to accomplish mental and physical challenges
  • Is intellectual and strong

  • Feels irritable
  • Is physically inflamed, causing skin rashes and oily hair

Keeping Pitta in Balance

It’s important for Pittas to be mindful of certain triggers that threaten their balance, such as summer, intense heat, and excessive sunlight.

Maintaining a supportive diet is key for Pitta. Cool, calming meals like fresh fruits, raw salads, and lean proteins nourish Pitta. On the other hand, eating spicy or greasy foods or skipping meals altogether can throw Pitta off balance.

Prefer

  • Cooling, calming, and hydrating meals
  • Cold soups and fresh fruits, especially in the summertime
  • Salads and steamed vegetables
  • White rice, quinoa, and beans
  • Several portions of vegetables every day
  • Lean protein like fish, egg whites, chicken, and turkey
  • All sweet fresh fruits like apples, apricots, berries, figs, grapes, mangoes, oranges, pineapples, plums, and watermelon
  • Coconut, coconut water, and coconut oil
  • Dairy, especially cheese, milk, yogurt, and ice cream

Avoid

  • Intensive heat
  • Coffee
  • Spicy, greasy, salty food
  • Overcooked meals
  • Too much red meat, eggs, spices, sugar, and alcohol
  • Skipping meals
  • Eating when angry, irritated, or in competitive situations

Hair Beauty Routine for Pitta


Pitta Hair

Pitta hair is straight and soft with moderate thickness.

This hair type is usually manageable and easy to style.

  • Oiliness — moderate
  • Thickness — medium hair strands
  • Elasticity — medium, hair strands can stretch a bit
  • Hydration — hair never becomes frizzy nor sticky
  • Texture — soft

But Pitta hair tends to premature thinning, early greying, and baldness.

Avoiding internal and external heat in the hair follicles is crucial to avoid Pitta imbalances.


Shampoo and Conditioner

Pitta hair needs moisture, gentle cleansing, and extra volume.

For healthy glowing locks we recommend Sūun Glow shampoo, a natural and mild shampoo that gently cleans and moisturizes, adding bouncy volume to fine and medium hair.

Infused with shikakai and neem, Sūun Glow is rich in antioxidants, vitamins and essential fatty acids that strengthen hair and soothe the scalp.

Follow with Glow conditioner, a silicone-free conditioner that adds nourishment without blocking hair fibers.

But if your hair is feeling dry or damaged from color treatments or heat tools, we'd recommend the Sūun Repair Conditioner for extra nourishment and restorative action.
