Hair Loss & Baldness
Neelibhringadi Oil is likely to act on ANAGEN phase of hair growth. In ANAGEN phase, cells in hair roots divides rapidly and forming new hair. This is an active phase of hair growth, which may last for 2 to 6 years. In some people, this phase is shorter, so they have difficulty to grow hair. In some people, this phase is longer, so they have long hair.
Neelibhringadi Oil is likely to activate the cell divisions in the hair roots, which ultimately stimulates the ANAGEN PHASE and regrowth of hair. For this purpose, deeper absorption of the neelibringadhi thailam is essential. For having deeper absorption, 10 to 15 minutes head massage with Neelibhringadi Oil is required. Furthermore, it may also prolong the ANAGEN phase and may become beneficial for promoting hair growth.
Premature Graying of Hair
Along with nutritional supplement (for vitamins and minerals) and herbal supplement such as Amalaki Rasayana and Yashtimadhu, Neelibringadhi Thailam should be applied twice daily for the treatment of premature graying of hair.
