The Mahabhringaraj oil that I am reviewing today is said to be a highly effective ayurvedic oil for any kinds of scalp and hair problems. It also said to improve the quality of sleep, giving deep, sound sleep and cures sleeplessness. It also stops untimely graying and falling of hair and helps destroys dandruff, lice and nits. Claims are even made to cure Allopacia Areata & baldness.
Ingredients: I simply love the ingredient list of this oil. It consists of- coconut oil, til oil, maka, brahmi, hirda, behda, amla, nagarmotha, kachora, bawachi, jatamasi, kapurkachri, gulab, walla and permitted colour.
Price: Rs. 65/- for 100 ml
I have very thin hair due to which it is weak and tends to fall very easily if proper care is not taken. I found this oil in a medical store and having read of its benefits, immediately bought it. I used it for over four months and have completely finished the bottle now. I noticed that while this oil gives nourishment to hair, it does nothing to generate new follicles or to cure medium baldness that I am facing in the frontal area of of my scalp due to thinning of hair (my personal experience).
The oil is green in colour and is very light. It gets completely absorbed when massaged properly and is not at all sticky. A sweet fragrance of all the herbs lingers on for some time which I like very much. The bottle is transparent enabling one to see how much of the product is left. It has a dark green cap under which is a white stopper. You will have to pierce the stopper to start using the oil. I massage this oil onto my scalp in the night and it definitely soothes my senses to give me a sound sleep. I have used it on my MIL knees and she said that she experienced pain reduction after a couple of applications.
Final say: I like the oil very much as it is light and non sticky and the herbal and aromatic ingredients does a good job at soothing the senses. I will always keep a bottle of this in my kitty.
Note: The review is based purely on my personal experience with the product. It may or may not have the same effect on others.
