Abstract

Skin and hair have got a lot of concern for interest of cosmetic purpose, along with its normal physiological functions. Hair is an important skin appendage which has vital role in perspiration and temperature maintenance. The biological process of grey hair appears to be associated with the progressive loss of pigment producing cells. Due to significant changes in lifestyle, diet, environmental pollution, UV light, water with increased fluoride content, nutritional deficiencies and mental stress has added to canites or premature greying of hairs. According to Ayurveda, Palitya is discolouration of scalp hairs due to Agantuja and Doshaja Nidana. Nasya Karma is the best treatment of choice to treat Palitya. Along with Shodhana Karma external Shamana Lepas prove best to treat Palitya. Prapaundarikadi Taila mentioned in Ashtanga Hridaya[1] is a wonder drug for all Shirorogas especially Akala Palitya, hence it is chosen and externally Triphaladi Lepa, a Krishnikarna Yoga from Chakradatta[2] is taken along with Nasya. A total of 30 patients were selected from OPD and IPD of Ramakrishna Ayurvedic Medical College after fulfilling inclusion and exclusion criteria randomly. All 30 patients were included in a single group and given 7 days of Nasya Karma followed by 7 days of Triphaladi Lepa. In the present study it was observed that, though there is only satisfactory effect on colour of hair, but other associated complaints had significant results.
