Phadatare Suvarna P*, Nesari Tanuja N*, Pokharkar Deepak, Pingle R.P

ABSTRACT

The usage of herbal cosmetics has been increased to many folds in personal care system and there is a great demand for herbal cosmetics that offer multifunctional effects. Most of the marketed herbal hair dye formulations contain para-phenylenediamine at 20-25% concentrations which is the main ingredient of commercial synthetic dyes. In the present investigation, attempts were made to make an oil herbal hair dye that gives dark brown to black colour to hair, resembling natural hair colour. The polyherbal hair oil was prepared using amla, mehendi, maka, nili and evaluated for dyeing effect on white human hair strands in vitro. The mixture of crude drugs, fruits of Embelica officinalis, leaves of Lawsonia innermis, Indigoferra tinctoria and whole plant of Eclipta alba were processed in varying concentrations using Ayurvedic method of oil preparation viz. Taila Pak Vidhi and evaluated for dyeing efficiency. The oil was also characterized for proximate analysis including moisture content, total ash, acid insoluble ash, water soluble ash, water insoluble ash, sulphated ash. Excellent results were obtained with developed formulation and the time (in days) required for hair darkening effect was found similar with marketed oil.

Keywords: Herbal formulation, Hair oil, Hair dyeing, Nilini, Bhringraj, Mehendi, Amla.
