images (1)My experience:

I love this oil and its true to its claim of reducing stress and relieves tension providing instant coolness to your head. I also noticed that it helps me to reduce my body heat as well . Its bit sticky , but i don’t mind.I usually apply it on my hair and wash off after an hour. Once I tried to keep it overnight and notices extra hair fall 😦  Post that experience I try to wash it of soon. I’m not sure of its claim in promoting hair growth and preventing dandruff, since I have been using for 3 weeks alone and I don’t have dandruff.

Overall I’m happy with this purchase and I’ll continue buying this since its holy grail oil for the boy 🙂

Pros

  1. True to its claims – It gives an instant cooling sensation
  2. Relieves stress and you can feel the instant relaxation
  3. Affordable and decently priced
  4. Makes hair smooth after hair wash
  5. Easily gets out of your head with normal shampooing
  6. It’s not thick and not super sticky

Cons:

  1. Although the bottle seems sturdy and leak proof, able to see oil seepage.
  2. Not a travel friendly bottle
  3. Will cause hair loss, if kept in the hair for more than an hour. I suppose it’s because of menthol
  4. Strong camphor smell

Rating: 4.5 /5

Will I recommend to others:

Yes  ! Yes !

Will I buy again :

Yes! Definitely

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 🙂

Price:

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 🙂
