The present study on formulated polyherbal Antidandruff hair oil is very effective in management of dandruff. However, during our experiment the formulation has proved to be excellent hair growth stimulators. Ideal base oil was selected by mixing of different proportions of two vegetative base oils. From the experiment it was reported that the volatile oils of Eucalyptus globules and Ocimum gratissimum along with the petroleum ether extract of Hibiscus rosa sinensis, Phylanthus embelica, Tridax procumbens posses antifungal activity. Further the last two extracts have significant hair growth activity. The result of open pilot clinical trials of prepared formulation brought strength to our claim. During the stability study of the formulation, the physical and chemical parameters remained unchanged after one month of preparation.

Key words: Dandruff, Polyherbal hair oil, Antifungal, Open pilot clinical trials, Stability study.
