Does it cause hair fall initially?
Yes, some people have observed hair fall in initial couple of weeks. But over a period of 2 – 3 months, it leads to hair regrowth and prevention of hair fall.

Usually equal quantity of hair oil mix with Ayyappala Kera tailam or Kuntalakanti hair oil is made along with Neelibhringadi.

Some of the complaints noted with this oil are –
Small bumps on forehead (usually noted when the oil is applied and left on the head for a very long period of time)
Some people experience cold and sinusitis worsening, if applied at night.
