Chemparuthyadi Keratailam Benefits:
It is used in Ayurvedic treatment for skin diseases like eczema, scabies, and pruritus.

It is also used to apply over head to relieve scalp itchiness and dandruff.

How to wash off the hair oil?
Wait for at least 30 minutes before washing hair. Longer the delay, better (except for very oily hairs). It is best to use herbal hair wash powders to wash off the hair oil. One or two rounds of wash with hair wash powder will get rid off oil from hair. It is very fine, even if some amount of oiliness remains on the hair.
Traditional treatises mention cold water to wash hair and face. (Reference: Ashtanga Sangraha, Sutrasthana, Dinacharya chapter). But to wash oily hair, lukewarm water can also be used. Avoid very hot water for hair wash.

    • Hello sir, Pitha pacification is the primary ayurvedic treatment for Alopecia via necessary pitha pacification diet and pitha reducing ayurvedic medication. Iron deficiency if exists also has to be corrected.
      There are Panchakarma treatments for the same. They are:
      1. Nasya
      2. Virechana
      3. Shirodhara

      Do consult an ayurvedic physician for the procedures.
