ABSTRACT:
Objective: To prepare essential hair oil from Eucalyptus, Poduthalai, Vettiver, Bhringraj, Alovera, Neem, Hibiscus, Henna and Fenugreek extracts in different combinations. Methods: Five different formulations (F1-F7) were prepared and subjected to general evaluation like color and odor, density and physical characteristics like specific gravity, pH, acid value, saponification value, ester value, sensitivity test, irritation test, grittiness and biological evaluation of anti dandruff activity. Results: The general evaluation of the essential oil preparations showed a different characteristic in each preparation. The Sensitivity test reveals no irritation, redness or marked skin changes and grittiness revealed the smooth texture of the oil. All formulations exhibited a good anti dandruff activity against Malassezia furfur. The maximum zone of inhibition was observed in F5 (Phyla nodiflora, Chrysopogon zizanioides and Eucalyptus in coconut oil) against M.furfur. Conclusion: The study showed that the formulation of F5 consisting Phyla nodiflora, Chrysopogon zizanioides and Eucalyptus globulus in coconut oil base was best suitable to control dandruff in scalp in human beings.
