Keshamrith Tailam

Keshamrith Tailam, also known as Keshamrith Oil, is a renowned Ayurvedic hair oil preparation. It is specifically formulated to promote hair health and address various hair-related issues.

Keshamrith Tailam is mainly used in the treatment of alopecia, to prevent premature graying of hair. It balances Pitta and Vata.

Key Ingredients:

  • Bhringraj (Eclipta alba): This is a key herb known for its hair-strengthening and growth-promoting properties.
  • Other herbs and oils may be included depending on the specific formulation and tradition.

Therapeutic Properties and Uses:

  1. Hair Growth: Keshamrith Tailam is prized for its ability to stimulate hair growth, making it beneficial for those experiencing hair loss or thinning.
  2. Hair Strength and Texture: It helps strengthen hair follicles, promoting healthier, thicker, and shinier hair.
  3. Scalp Health: The oil nourishes and moisturizes the scalp, preventing dryness, flakiness, and dandruff.
  4. Preventing Premature Graying: It may assist in delaying premature graying of hair.
  5. Anti-dandruff: Keshamrith Tailam can be effective in controlling dandruff and soothing an irritated scalp.
  6. Cooling Effect: Some formulations may have a cooling effect on the scalp, which can be soothing and refreshing.
  7. Anti-inflammatory: It may have anti-inflammatory effects, beneficial for conditions like scalp irritation and inflammation.
  8. Improves Blood Circulation: Massaging the oil onto the scalp helps improve blood flow to the hair follicles, supporting hair health.


Keshamrith Tailam is typically applied directly to the scalp. It’s gently massaged in circular motions, ensuring the oil is evenly distributed. Leaving it on for some time (ranging from a few hours to overnight) allows for maximum absorption. It’s then washed off using a mild shampoo.

Note: While Keshamrith Tailam has many beneficial properties, it’s important to consult a qualified Ayurvedic practitioner or healthcare professional before using it, especially if you have underlying health conditions or are pregnant or breastfeeding. They can provide personalized advice based on your specific health needs.
