“Champi has existed in Indian medicine and health as one of the most famous head massages since 600BC. Like all elements of Ayurveda, there is a true preparation and ritual that accompanies it. For our family, it actually started with my father who would personally provide a ‘chumpi’ to me and my siblings every Sunday. Champi Sunday became a memorable weekly ritual for the Khosla family.” Sangitha Khosla.

Years later, now as an Ayurvedic doctor and dermatologist, she uses that same formula to date – and has generously offered her exact recipe in the making of our Champi Hair Oil.

Turmeric is also known as Kanchani which means gold and has the ability to provide a gold hue to the skin. Suitable for all three doshas and possessing anti-bacterial, anti-fungal as well as anti-viral properties, it can help with removal of toxins on the skin. Ashwagandha, known to be Balaprada (provides strength), and Shophahara (reduces swelling) has significant antimicrobial and anti-oxidant action, protecting the skin from free radicals and pollution. As the skin gets exposed to environmental pollutants, free radicals and unhealthy microbes during the day time, it is important to find powerful agents that are constantly protecting the skin and conducting repair. Ashwagandha and turmeric combine to do exactly this job in the indē wild AM serum.

What is “champi”?
A champi ritual is a head and scalp massage using hair oil and incorporating the use of pressure points to relieve tightness and tension. When done weekly, it has shown to increase circulation and nourishment, and therefore hair growth, while calming anxiety.
Why is champi important?
The practice of champi head massages, using oils to nourish the scalp and hair, is proven to reduce stress carried in the head and neck. This technique of massaging oil into the scalp in a circular motion increases the flow of oxygen to the brain, thus lessening anxiety. For the hair, it is an effective practice for conditioning the scalp, boosting hair health from the root to the ends, reducing dandruff and hair breakage and thinning, and preventing premature graying.
