5 Brands And Types Of Sindoor Available In India
Sindoor popularly known as Vermillion worldwide is traditionally applied at the beginning or completely along the parting-line of a woman’s hair or as a dot on the forehead. Sindoor is the mark of a married woman in Hinduism. The Sindoor is first applied to the woman by her husband on the day of her wedding and is called as Sindoor Dana ceremony. After this time she must apply this every day herself in the parting of her hairline.
Initially women used to apply sindoor in their full maang (Hair partition) but now applying just a tiny dot hidden somewhere in hair is the new trend.
Tradition of Sindoor application in India is so much popular that even various brands sell sindoor. Before I introduce you to the bets five brands for you try for Sindoors let me first tell you all about types of Sinddors.
Types Of Sindoor
Originally there used to be only one type of Sindoor i.e. Dry/Powder Sindoor but now brand shave come up with liquid sindoors so that it becomes more convenient for women to use. In ancient India there used to be only one shade that Sindoorn used to come in which is ‘Sindoori’ (slightly ornage), but now the popular shades are red and maroon.
Powder Sindoor: It is the oldest and the most popular type of Sindoor. Powder types of Sindoor used to come in small pots called Sindoor Daani. Women used to use their fingers forming a pinch to apply Sindoor, later these Sindoor Daani started to come along with sticks so as to make sindoor application convenient. Using these is a task, they smudge and can fall on your nose and can at time leave red marks on your face.
Liquid Sindoor: The credit of bringing liquid sindoors to existence goes to many cosmetic brands. These are the most popular types these days and women like using these due to their ease of application. They are not harmful for hair and do not stain badly.
Stick Sindoor: These too came into existence due to cosmetic brands but could not become as popular as the liquid type of Sindoor. These used to come in stick forms like a lipstick with a point. This type od sindoor has a very sticky feel and is a bit uncomfortable.
