Smell and consistency: This hair oil smells like infusion of essential oils and it feels like wearing a strong fragrance. As for its consistency is concerned, Himalaya Herbals Anti Dandruff Hair oil is very light and non sticky.

Packaging: It is packed in a transparent see through plastic bottle that helps determine the amount of hair oil left inside the bottle.

My take on Himalaya Herbals Anti-Dandruff Hair Oil:

There was a time when I hated oiling my hair as I could not tolerate the smell of herbal hair oils as a result of which my hair became super dry .I remember asking my hair stylist if my scalp is in good condition and he said that its too dry. I told him how it becomes greasy on the third day after having used shampoo and which confused him somewhere and he chose to keep quiet. To combat the dryness of my scalp hair oils had to make a comeback in my hair care routine here is what I picked up this winter.

Himalaya Herbals Anti Dandruff Hair Oil is so light and non sticky that gets absorbed quite nicely into the hair shaft and does not stain pillow covers when left on hair overnight. It gets washed off in one wash itself and what stays behind is soft hair and clean scalp. The scalp gets cleared of dandruff and dry flakes very easily and looks visibly clean at the same time. It needs only a few applications to free scalp of severe dandruff and itchiness. Every claim of it of treating dandruff and flakiness is undoubtedly true.

Besides keeping dandruff at bay, it takes care of smoothness of tresses and they look shiny. The itchiness that comes along with dry scalp is bade goodbye too. One bottle easily lasts more than a month when applied only on the scalp. Talking of downsides to this hair oil would be that it does not control frizz nor does it even claim to do so. Otherwise this is highly recommended as it protects scalp against dandruff and itchiness that cause hair fall and other hair ailments.

  1. Loved the pics!! Zinnia can u plz tell me whether it contains mineral oil or not.I really want to try it out if it works on dandruff

    • Thank you Vandana ! its ingredient list has no mention of mineral oil so i guess it does not contain mineral even though there are no claims as such too 🙂

  2. I applied this oil like any other oil and left it on for two hours but it doesn’t come off, I have shampooed 6 times with Pantene and 4 times with Head & Shoulders but it just doesn’t come off,now I’m thinking using soap in the morning ! It is a very synthetic sticky oil like motor oil it doesn’t come off, very disappointed with this product
