If you ask me what have I been most experimental with in my life, I would say - My Hair! Whether it's been about colouring it in sane or wild colours, or playing with its length, I have never given it too much of a thought and taken some really impromptu decisions. However, recently my decision to go short was more need based and not experimental, as after having Aryaa(my baby girl) I experienced some hair loss like most women do and also hated my hair being yanked by the baby. For those of you who follow my blog, you saw how short I went, but if you didn't then here you go :)
I loved loved loved the haircut but then I get bored very easily too, and so within a month or two, it was time to grow it all back again :) I was back on track to doing everything it takes to get the length longer, and then somebody recommended the Dabur Vatika Enriched Coconut Hair Oil to me. Now I was done with coconut oils a long time ago when I saw them not really having an effect on my hair, and hence hadn't used one for the last 10-12 years. My first reaction was obviously in the negative, but my friend told me to give it a chance once and just to make her happy I decided to give it a try. Boy am I glad I did! It has definitely changed my perspective about coconut oils, but then this is not just a simple coconut oil, it is enriched with the goodness of 8 herbs which is why it is a wonder product!
While I had my haircut 5 months ago, I have been using this oil for the last 2 months and look at the length of my hair now!
The oil has not only strengthened my hair, but my hair fall has also reduced to a great extent(it could also be due to the stabilisation of my hormones). It also has played a huge role in the reduction of dandruff(I have a really dry scalp due to my the nature of my dry skin) and my dependence on dandruff treatments has greatly reduced.
The oil is very light in texture and has a lovely fragrance to it, unlike the strong smell of other coconut oils. It's light green in colour, not at all sticky until and unless you land up using more than required, and gives a nice shine to the hair which is very visible especially after you wash the oil off. What is very important too is that it has worked on my coloured hair without causing any damage. I generally use the oil on my scalp and hair and give myself a head massage before leaving it overnight. At times I even use a hot towel on it for about 10 minutes before I head to bed. It is really pocket friendly at INR 84/- for 150ml
If you would ask my feedback, this is a nice natural oil with essential herbs that is also very pocket friendly. In case it doesn't work for you, it doesn't hurt the pocket and if it works, then bingo! :) I would surely recommend this to you as it has worked well for me and if you try it out, do share your experience with me :)
