When someone says 'Hair oil' the most common picture that pops up in my head is that of a parachute coconut hair oil. It is the most easily available brand in India.
I came across this parachute ayurvedic hair oil some days back. At first i went past by it, thinking how different can it be from it's other variants? However i gave into the little devil called 'temptation' and picked up the product. As i started reading the ingredients and the expected results, i got super excited to try it.
Parachute Advansed Ayurvedic Hair Oil nourishes the hair roots and scalp and controls hair fall effectively. It gives us long, thick and beautiful hair. It also promotes hair growth, reduces dandruff and prevents premature greying. Parachute Advansed Ayurvedic Hair Oil makes us hair to stay truly healthy.
Amla, Ghritakumari, Methi, Mehendi, Nagarmotha, Coconut oil/Excipients , Sugandhit Dravya.
Rs 43 approx for 95ml
(my hair type- long with oily scalp and dry ends which get entangled & hence break alot).
The fragrance of the hair oil is not very pleasing. It can be a problem to some but for me if a hair product works well, i can bear with it.
It looks like a golden/ brownish thick oil with some fine particles here and there.
Although it looks thick it is not like those heavy hair oils, which are difficult to wash off. I usually dilute my shampoo while washing my hair and it takes me 2 washes to get the entire product washed away.
It has been asked to leave the oil overnight however i used to apply the oil early in the morning and wash off in the afternoon as i usually tend to catch a cold if i leave any oil overnight. After using this oil for a month ( that is, once or twice a week) i can say that effects tend to improve with time. After the first wash i did not notice any miraculous reduction in hair fall. However i did notice that my hair was getting less entangled. It was much easier to comb through and felt much more silky than before. & hence i experienced less breakage.
I especially love the way my hair looks on the second day after washing my hair with this oil. It looks neat and gives me a little bit of bounce and shine. Talking of dandruff, it did reduce the appearnce of it with time. As far as greying of hair is concerned i cant comment on it as i am not facing that problem. But since it contains amla it might be beneficial for those with grey hair as well.
1. nourishes hair well
2. makes hair easy to comb through & hence less breakage
3. contains all effective ayurvedic ingredients
4. very reasonable
5. makes hair look beautiful on the second day, especially
1. does not reduce hairfall miraculously
2. fragrance may trouble some
I understand that what might suite my hair might not suit everyone else. However, The brand Parachute is a reputable one in India and the price of this product is also not very high. Considering these two facts this product can be given a chance atleast once. What i have realised is that this product tends to perform better if you give it some time and be patient. Also apply it regularly and leave it on for as long as possible.
