I have been combating dandruff due to my regular keratin treatments for years now.
Nothing I have tried, including dandruff specific shampoos, coconut oil and olive oil have completely fixed this issue.
My dandruff got increasingly worse as time has passed.
On one of my husband and daughter's recent trips to Morocco, they came back with a small bottle of this oil that was being used on my daughter's hair by her grandma.
I started putting this on my scalp as a spot treatment after washing my hair and noticed that despite the not so great smell, it was actually helping A LOT!!
I then came to the bible of all make up related reviews, MA, and realized this was indeed a BIG deal!
I also did additional research and learned that women in India have been using this for decades to treat dandruff, hair loss and to promote long, lush dark hair!!
I was so amazed by the discovery that I immediately googled the nearest Indian goods store and stocked up.
Ladies let me tell you that this is hair nutrition at the MAX.
My hair is dandruff free, rich and silky. Plus shedding has diminished SUBSTANTIALLY which is a welcomed added bonus
HOW I APPLY IT:
-Generously massage it into my scalp and ends after wetting my hair for enhanced absorption.
-Leave it on over night and wash it off in the morning
-OR put on a plastic cap and get under the hair dryer for 15 minutes
-This must be shampooed out 2-3 times to get it out completely
-The smell is the worst but it does not linger and totally worth the outcome
I purchased Panjami Herbal Hair Oil after seeing their ad in google and I read about the oil that it will give results within a month. So I just gave a try and it was unbelievable that as they promise, I got results in two weeks time. One good thing i like about the product is it is purely herbal. The dealer also has sent me a lot of reviews to my mail after my request. This made me confident to give a try at this product. I had two problems before that is hairfall due to dandruff and some white hairs. After using Panjami hair oil, dandruff has gone in no time and my white hairs also got converted to black hair. Really a nice product.I dont know about amla hair oil as I have not used it.Read here mystronghair.blogspot.com
I purchased Dabur Amla Hair oil a while back when I was in Egypt. first off , It was so cheap! I got 12 bottles for about five Canadian dollars.This product has sped up my hair growing process tremendously thanks to its excellent nourishing oils.Although ,sadly , I do have some complaints. The packaging makes it difficult to properly apply the product in your hands , it has a large opening that makes the contents spill out.Very annoying.Also , the smell is terrible.Lastly , I can only use it on days where I don't get out of the house because its so greasy.I would prefer something like a daily cream that contains the same nutrients.Overall , I will purchase this product again just because it does an excellent job of keeping my hair long and healthy.I would definitely recommend it to all girls who want strong,healthy hair.
I use Dabur Amla Gold. It contains the following ingredients in it:
Paraffinum Liquidum, Canola Oil, Palm Glycerides, Emblica Officinals (Amla) Extract in Canola Oil, Fragrance, t-Butyl Hydroquinone (Anti oxidant), Colors: D&C: Yellow No. 10, Green No. 6, Red No. 17
I find this product to be very moisturizing to my hair. It also leaves my hair nice and shiny looking. And, it also aids in keeping my hair healthy and strong as well.
I find the smell of the oil to be okay. It's certainly not the best or the worst that I would say. For me, it is completely tolerable.
Also, the price for this oil is quite cheap. I was able to purchase a 10.14 oz. bottle of this stuff online for 4.99 (w/o s& h costs included). And, even though it does have mineral oil listed as its first ingredient, it doesn't cause any problems for my hair at all. I use this oil as a pre-poo treatment for my hair. After about 1-2 hours or so, I cleanse my hair to remove the oil from my hair. Therefore, the oil is not be left in my hair in large amounts, which would cause buildup issues in such a case.
Overall, I highly recommend this product as well as the Dabur Vatika Oil as well. They are absolutely terrific for gaining the most shiniest, healthiest, and longest hair possible! continued >>
Aside from the really funky smell and the mineral oil, this did make my hair softer and shinier. Although I gotta tell you people that if you want a natural oil that smells lovely and isn't greasy then try argan oil. I'm using both argan and amla but I think I'll be sticking to argan oil from now on....it's just better on my hair and the Pro Naturals brand doesn't contain sulfates or silicone.
I had to bring down the rating due to the fact that this has mineral oil in it. I wish I could find a purer form of it. I used it with a deep conditioner and my hair was soft the next day. I could also do without the smell.
It really does smell terrible- somebody said old lady dollar store perfume. That is EXACTLY what it smells like! Aside from the horrible smell this worked very well to impart shine and manageability to my long, fine color-treated hair. This really did deliver results and for this I am willing to put up with the smell. What I am not willing to put with however, is the fact that this green oil was turning my blond highlights to an ugly golden brassy color. I threw this stuff away and started using the Dabur Vatika oil. That stuff is awesome. It works way better at conditioning my hair, its a clear oil and is smells kind of good. That oil is my HG after every color treatment I have done and I highly recommend. Bonus: its only $4!
Can you say cat piss? OMG this stuff stinks soooo bad. Someone said "dollar store old lady perfume", I wish!!! It is unbearable. I read great things about it so I decided to give it a try. Well I couldn't get pass the stench. I only used it once, so I don't know about hair growing powers, but it didn't do anything special for my hair. I just couldn't bear smelling like a cat pissed on my head. So I stopped.
Luckily, I found Virgin coconut oil wich is a gift from heaven! Makes my hair so soft, shiny, bouncy, strong, and thick! from the first application. And it smells divine. It transfromed my damaged hair immediatly.So why put myself through this torture if I don't have to.
If you're trying it for hair growth and can live with the smell, I say go for it. It might work. I wouldn't know because I just couldn't use it for that long. But if it is for healing, moisturizing, conditioning hair, go for the coconut oil. It works wonders, and you won't smell like a litter box.
This product never worked for my hair. The paraffin oil etc ingredients must have been the culprit.
Surprisingly, my grandmothers and great-aunts had always used this hair oil and had beautiful hair at the age of 80+. Must have been the diet, I guess.
I got the last bottle @ The Mideast Food Center downtown for five CAD. It's not Dabur oil tho, it's Nima brand amla oil. It's the same green color, but not thick at all. The smell is lovely. Sort of a fresh cut grass/exotic scent I really like. There is NO MINERAL oil in this product. I use coconut oil typically, but I'd read that Amla oil stops and prevents hair fall, and darkens hair :) I used to dye my hair black as a younger woman, and it suited me better than my current auburnish color. I tend to look washed out as I am olive skinned and my eyes are not a very dark brown, so I can't wait to see if this will in fact make my hair as dark and lustrous as those Indian lovelies and better suit my own very neutral coloring. Update in four weeks!
