Indulekha Bringha Oil is an Ayurvedic formula that has been widely advertised to be a medicine for hair growth, prevention of hair fall and premature graying. Hairfall has become a universal problem these days and after seeing their advertisement that promised respite, I picked up a bottle of the Indulekha Bringha Oil.
Packaging and Price
It comes in a 100 ml plastic bottle that is priced at Rs.423. I was surprised that there are loads of people buying and trying it despite such a steep price.
What the product claims
Indulekha Bringha Oil claims that it is safe, healthy and completely natural remedy to control the rate of hair loss. That it is suggested as a remedy for the three stages of Hair Care in Ayurveda, namely, hair growth, prevention of hair loss and premature graying.
It has herbs like Bringha, Amla, Aloe Vera and Neem steeped in Virgin Coconut Oil.
How to use it
For the first week of the hair treatment, as per the instructions, I applied a capful on my hair every night and massaged it well. Follow it up with a wash every morning. Once you are through with the first week, use the Indulekha Bringha Oil in place of your regular oil an hour before your hair wash – whether it is alternate days or two days a week. You can also use a few drops after hair wash to tame the fly aways.
My experience with Indulekha Bringha Oil
The oil is light brown in color from all the herbs in it and has a really strong smell. Its consistency is like coconut oil. About a capful is sufficient for medium length hair. I would even sometimes use the Indulekha Bringha oil only on the scalp and regular coconut oil for the body of the hair.
While I did see a lot of hair loss when I was continuosly washing my hair, day after day in the first week, the hairloss did subside a bit later on. After week 1, I made sure that I took a substantial amount of the hair oil before hair wash. I massaged my hair really well for about 15 minutes to revitalise the roots. Then left it to soak for an hour. I tried washing it off with shikakai powder but the oil tends to stick onto the hair and needs shampoo in the last rinse for it to be washed off completely.
I could not get myself to apply it after the hair wash, considering how strong its fragrance is. It does add a lot of bounce to the hair and also helps in fighting dandruff. About hairfall and regrowth, I did see the hairfall reducing slightly but my hair has not really gained in length. Maybe it needs 5-6 months of continuous usage. I am currently on a break from using it during winter since excessive usage of Bringha can sometimes induces cold and cough.
But yes, unless the hair treatment is coupled with good food, exercise and regular trimming of hair , it certainly will not show any remarkable results.
