Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of Malatyadi Tailam and Til Tailam in the treatment of Khalitya. The other objectives were to study the overall benefits of Malatyati Tailam in hair fall, scalp itching, boils, dryness of hair, fine flakes, dandruff, and hair texture. Methodology: Forty patients aged between 18 to 40 years fulfilling the clinical criteria for the diagnosis of Khalitya were selected randomly from O. P. D. and I.P.D section of P.P.J.G.M. Ayurved Hospital Boradi Dist. Dhule. The independent and dependent variables causing Khalitya were identified. The structured questionnaires were given to patients at day 1, 15 and at one month to know the effect of Malatyadi Tailam for the sign and symptoms of hair fall, scalp itching, boils, dryness of hair, fine flakes, dandruff, and hair texture. Follow-up visit was performed at day 45. Results: Four patients from the Malatyadi Tailam group had complete relief in sign and symptoms; however no patients from the Til Tailam group had complete relief after one month of treatment. No recurrence of signs and symptoms were observed in Malatyadi Tailam group whereas from the Til Tailam group of 20 patients itching and fine flakes noted as recurrent sign and symptoms in nine patients. Thirteen patients from the Malatyadi group have at least one score improvement compared to baseline, however only seven patients have at least one score improvement from the Til Tailam group. Three patients had no signs of improvement after treatment with Malatyadi Tailam. Overall, the effect of Malatyadi Tailam was significant compared to Til Tailam in patients with Khalitya and use of Malatyadi Tailam was safe and well tolerated.
