Hey Guys,

Tried Dabur Amla Hair Oil Yet???

You know I usually make my DIY hair oil to cover gray hair naturally. I usually make it in small batches that would last me for a week or two. But for a couple of weeks, I have become really lazy. Plus, I got some requests to try, whether Dabur Amla hair oil really works???

Dabur Amla Hair Oil Review

As I mentioned above, I bought this one couple of days back. Actually, I bought cute little small size bottles of this hair oil. I got 20 of them. I found them really cute.

The small bottles I have with me, are not that travel-friendly but they look super cute. Don’t they? The oil is green in color and has a very strong herbal kind of smell, makes you feel like you visiting an ayurvedic store. I personally found it bit too strong.

Ingredients weren’t mentioned on the packaging. I had to dig the internet to find them and ended up discovering that it contains mineral oil 🙁 .

Mineral oil, Veg oil (Sesame oil, Canola oil, Peanut oil, Cotton seed oil, Palm olein oil), Oil ext of Gooseberry (Amla), Colours Yellow (12700), Green (61565), Red (12150), Perfume, Antioxidant-Tertbutyl hydroquinone (TNHQ).

How to Use: Massage your scalp with Dabur Amla Hair Oil. Leave overnight for best results. Shampoo next morning to get healthy, lustrous hair.

My Experience

As you might know, I oil my hair twice a week religiously. Once overnight and once for just an hour. I have been using Dabur Amla hair oil for over a month now. Usually, I heat my hair oil using double boiler method to enhance its nutrients and massage the oil into my scalp using my fingers. Leave it on for a while, take steam using my steam bag and then shampoo and condition as usual.

While I tried applying this oil, its strong smell bothered me a bit. The smell stayed on even after I washed my hair. It has a strong ayurvedic kind of herbal smell. The oil is less sticky and gets rinsed off in one go.

After using it for a month, I can say is that this oil did darken my hair. This was my main motive behind using this one. Other than that, I didn’t see any triggered hair growth or extra nourished hair or any extra shine either.

Does Dabur Amla Hair Oil Work For Gray Hair???

This was one of the main queries that I got asked. Yes, Dabur Amla does help in darkening your hair and hiding your grays effectively. I have seen my hair become darker. I haven’t seen any changes in my hair length or scalp conditions though.

Yay or Nay???

Honestly, I wouldn’t repurchase it. It contains mineral oil which actually leaves a layer of build up and I try to avoid that. I would make my own hair oil for gray hair instead. But if you are looking for a hair oil, that is not completely natural but does darken your gray hair, then you can give this one a try.
