5 Sindoor Brands in India
A few days back I was going through a post where Anamika had reviewed Patanjali Sindoor/ Suhaa Tikka. That was probably the second time I saw Anamika wearing Sindoor and totally loved her look. Sindoor is the mark of a married woman.
The Sindoor is first applied to the woman by her husband on the day of her wedding and is called as Sindoor Dana ceremony. A ubiquitous part of the married Indian woman’s look, she must apply this every day herself in the parting of her hairline. While it is completely our own choice whether to look married or not, but it is also undeniable that the red dot on your forehead has beauty of its own.
No colour would be more powerful, no colour happier still than red that embellishes the maiden’s head with a pinch of vermillion. So today I’ll be giving you quick reviews of 5 sindoors available in Indian market.
This Sindur by Patanjali comes in a stick form. It comes in a red & golden plastic body and works with a twist up mechanism and is retractable. The packaging is easy to use, sleek and travel friendly. This sindur does not claim of being water proof or smudge proof but despite of it, it does not smudge and stays intact for a good 6-7 hours. Washing it off too is easy and it easily goes away in a single wash. A safe formula has a unique combination of precious herbs, vegetable oils & waxes. It does not irritate and harm the scalp.
