    • It can happen in the first week. The hairs with loose roots fall off due to the heaviness of oil drops on the scalp. Do not rub excessively after applying hair oil.
      Usually things start to look better from second week onward. If still there is hair fall, consult an Ayurveda doctor directly.

  6. Hi Doctor, I have been diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis on my scalp. I have had it for at least 4 months now. My doctor asked me to use Dhurdhurapathradi taila regularly. I have used the oil thrice a week for a month but it hasn’t helped much. Shall I also get Ayyapala kairatailam and mix it with dhurdhurapathradi and see if that makes a difference? I also have seborrheic dermatitis on my face in the t zone area for which I have been put on patolakaturohinyadi Kashayam and psorakot gel and tiktakam kashyam. Will that address my problem? And adding ayyapala to dhurdhurapathradi won’t have any adverse effect on my face dermatitis. Look forward to your advise.
