Dandruff is a frequent dermatological diseases that affect the seborrheic parts of the body. It is a scalp condition characterised by itchy, flaky skin with no obvious infection. Your skin and scalp shed dead cells, which usually are so fine that they are not noticed. But when these cells start clumping together, they form dandruff flakes. These are visible on the scalp, hair and at times of the shoulder, leading to redness, itching and social embarrassment.
In Ayurveda, dandruff is linked to Darunaka. The word 'daruna' denotes hardness. The skin on the scalp gets cracked, becomes rough, dry and itchy, due to an increase in kapha vata. 'Arunshika' is a small ulcer with many openings manifested on the skin of the scalp due to kapha rakta.
Acharya Charak in his book Charak Samhita has explained two basic objectives of Ayurveda, which is summed up in the shlok "Swasthasya swasthya rakshanam;Aturasya vikar prashamanamcha" – To prolong life and promote perfect health of healthy person and to eradicate the disease and dysfunction of unwell person .
The Neem Ayu Anti Hair Fall Oil is based on this dual principle of Ayurveda - promote new hair and reduce hair fall. Shiroabhayanga (oil massage on head) is highly recommended in Ayurveda to improve hair health and growth. Acharya Sushrut in Sushrut Samhita has mentioned that oil massage (with the right oil) will make hair grow luxuriantly and impart thickness, softness and dark gloss to them.
