Abstract

In Ayurveda, hair-fall is known as Khalitya. Acharaya Sushrut and Acharaya Vagbhatta mentioned it under the heading of Shudra Roga and Shiroroga respectively. It is the most common condition in both young and old age. Khalitya is caused mainly by overusing a variety of hair products, including chemical shampoos, soaps, creams, dyes, and hair colours; excessive use of hair tools; poor dietary practises and lifestyle choices; pollution; hormone imbalances; and more. A 26-year-old female patient reported at the Agad Tantra department's OPD in the National Institute of Ayurveda, Jaipur with the primary complaints of Khalitya (hair fall), Darunak (dandruff), Shirah Kandu (itching on scalp) and Kesha Rukshata (dryness of hair). In this case, patient was suggested to use Dhatturadi Tail along with the oral administration of Yashtimadhu churna with milk. The therapy's effectiveness was evaluated based on the difference between the patient's pre and post-treatment signs and symptoms. For evaluating, a unique scoring scheme was created.
