Dabur Amla Jasmine Hair Oil – Review

Dabur Amla Oil comes in a plastic 200 ml bottle. It’s quite a runny oil, so be careful how you pour it. You can easily exaggerate the amount of product. I wish the bottle had a pump or anything similar that would make using this product easier.

I personally don’t like jasmine, but this product smells divine. It is a slight jasmine fragrance but nothing too overpowering.

How I use Amla Oil?

I use it as a treatment before washing. Although it has a runny texture it is too oily for a thin hair.

Massage and leave it for an hour or more. Then proceed with your regular shampoo and conditioner. I use this treatment 2 times per week. I have noticed that my hair looks shinier (I’m blond) and grows faster.

The only thing I don’t like is that on the top of the ingredients list is mineral oil, an industrially produced derivative of crude oil (the same oil you put into your car as petroleum). There aren’t any real benefits of using mineral oil, and its purpose is to act as a cheap lubricant.

I’m on a hunt for pure amla oil. So if you have any recommendations, I would appreciate.
