Nowadays, such affected persons are addressing the issues with herbal therapies than chemical treatments.

Three different plants i.e. Javākusum (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis), Jāti (Jasminum officinale) and Bargād/ Vaṭa (Ficus benghalensis) identified from the descriptions of Mādhava Cikitsā, a classical ayurvedic text.The GC-MS study of the flower extracts of Javākusum and Jāti (Chameli) and aerial root extract of Bargād revealed several phytocompounds which are considered as potential bioactive ingredients from the way2drug PASS analysis (chemoinformatics study) for therapeutic uses like antifungal, antiseborrheic agents and hair growth stimulants, etc. The medicated oil formulation/ preparation from the combination of these three selected plants also tested positive in effect for controlling dandruff and promoting hair growth in the affected individuals when experimentally studied.
