Himalaya anti hair fall hair oil review

I have been experiencing hair fall lately because of the salt water in Chennai  especially in the area I live . Even you taste the salt when you take bath 😦 . I have been in constant hunt for a good hair oil, that will save my hair to stick to the scalp 😦  .

To save my last strands of hair, I have picked up this for 2 reasons 1) It’s from an herbal brand 2)I fell for the claims I have seen this pack 😉 .You can get it online from amazon .I got this oil 2 months back and I have been using this as overnight oil treatment . I alternate between coconut oil and Himalaya oil . Although it’s not so great ,I’d say it worked and I’m happy with my purchase 🙂

My hair type:

Dry hair with dry scalp , not damaged

My experience:

I have been using this oil for 2 months, twice in a week . In the first 3 weeks I didn’t notice any improvement, post that my hair fall has been  reduced a bit . I am able to visibly notice texture improvement in my hair . It works 😀 given you have the time and patience. I always applied this oil overnight and i need to cover my pillow to prevent it staining my pillow case . But its okay, i can compromise for that for the product that works. One thing I hate about this is ” you need to wash your hair twice ” and you can’t do that in a hurry. Although the hair claims to be herbal , I don’t notice any herbal smell, it’s a strong smell which I couldn’t describe. Overall its a good product and helps in reducing hair fall ( but don’t expect a miracle :P)

Pros:

  1. It helps in controlling hair fall .
  2. Improves hair texture over time
  3. Controls itching for dry scalp
  4. It’s from trusted herbal brand
  5. Decently priced for the quantity
  6. Clear bottle, so you know how much is left

Cons:

  1. It’s not lightweight, looks greasy post application
  2. Strong smell , although vanish after an hour
  3. Need to wash your hair twice with shampoo

Do I purchase it again:

Yes 🙂 Why not , It works and good for price and quantity

Do I recommend to others:

Yes 🙂
