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.

Questions

 How it acts on hair fall?
It is more useful in alopecia areata, where a patch of hair is erased. Before the hairs re-grow, there needs to be some local irritant to stimulate skin. This oil does that.
Also, Malati and Naktamala are very potent skin detox herbs, useful in addressing dandruff, seborrhic dermatitis, scalp psoriasis etc scalp skin issues, which harm the hairs.

Can I use shampoo to wash the hair after oil application?
There are a lot of Ayurvedic hair oils that can be used daily. Malatyadi taila, Neelibhringadi taila, Brahmi taila, Bhringamalaka taila etc.
Hair oils can be applied in three ways. A relatively large quantities of hair oil applied to the entire length of hair, 30 minutes to 120 minutes before bath / hair wash. A small quantity of oil, applied after bath. A small quantity of oil applied in evening or at night before going to bed. If you are planning to apply hair oil and wash your hair, after some time, it is fine to use Shampoos.

But as per Ayurvedic principles, it is best to use herbal hair wash powders rather than shampoos for hair wash. Less chemicals, less addditives, more natural. If you cannot use herbal hair wash powder, then using shampoo is fine.

During pregnancy, lactation

If you were using this oil before pregnancy without any allergic reaction, you can continue using this oil even during pregnancy.
If you have not used this product before and wish to use it during pregnancy, better to consult a doctor because it can cause skin allergy in some rare cases.
It is generally considered as safe to use during lactation, however consult your doctor for the right advice.

Can this product be applied after steam therapy?
No. Oil is best applied before steam therapy. This is as per basic Ayurvedic principles.

  1. If you are able to get rid of the oil from hair, even with cold water bath, then there is no problem with it.
    There is no special Ayurvedic technique that I know to get rid of chlorine and salt from bathing water.

  4. Greetings Doctor,

    I’m using malatyadi thailam for the past two months. I’ve been applying the oil directly to scalp with a comb like appllier, which i got with the bottle of “indulekha bringha hair oil” , and apllying the oil with hand to the skin at the starting of my hairline( the two apexes of ” M ” shaped hairline. Then keep it as it is for around half an hour .After that i wash it of with a mild shampoo. Recently i started keeping a cotton ball dipped in malatyadi thailam over the two apexes of the hairline for 30 mins.

    I’m wondering wether how i apply the oil is on the right track or do i have to bring any changes in that?

    Moreover I also do want to know wether i need to take any medicines or ayurvedic pills aprt from the application of malatyadi thailam??

    Eagerly waiting for your reply.

    Regards.
