Abstract

Attitudes towards different hair, such as hairstyles and hair removal, vary widely across different cultures and historical periods, but it is often used to indicate a person's personal beliefs or social position, such as their age, sex, or religion. As hair is considered as barometer of beauty each one is over conscious about it and is in search for a better remedy for the maintenance and management of their crowning glory. Alopecia areata is characterized by acquired skin aliment that can affect all the hair bearing skin including scalp, beard, which is characterized by localized areas of non-scarring hair loss which can be compared with Indralupta.  Hence all these are pointing towards a better and affordable remedy which can be provided much effectively by our ancient science Ayurveda. Hence considering all these the treatment was planned for a week with internal administration of Vidangarishta along with Krimikutararasa and Shatavari guda as Rasayana. Also an external application of milky exudates of papaya over the scalp region where head bath was not allowed as per the strict rule of our Acharya for more a precise result. The results shown were profound, quick and permanent and are an outstanding evidence of clinical application of principles of Ayurveda.
