Bhringraj has many different uses, but it is most well known as an all-round hair tonic. It has many valuable effects on the hair that make it one of the best natural oils to use. Bhringraj oil is made with Bhringraj powder and a base oil like coconut or sesame oil for easy penetration into the scalp and follicles, combining together to promote the health of your hair and scalp. Still, the positive growth effects come from the main ingredient, Bhringraj.
Bhringraj oil is, first and foremost, used for hair regrowth. The choice of carrier oils used are light and easily absorbed by the scalp, instead of sitting on the scalp and clogging the follicles. Although it is used to treat balding in both men and women, it is also a highly effective treatment for thinning hair. Even if you only have a little bit of hair left, Bhringraj oil will stimulate follicles in their dormant states to produce new hairs just like minoxidil does. This makes it ideal for people who are balding, have damaged or receding hairlines, or even for people who are losing hair due to stress or medical conditions.
But it doesn’t just help hair to regrow. Bhringraj hair oil will also make the hair grow back stronger and healthier than before. It strengthens the hair from the root outwards and even strengthens the skin of the scalp. Because of this, once your hair has regrown due to the Bhringraj hair oil, it is going to be strong enough to stay healthy for longer.
Not only that, but Bhringraj hair oil also helps to restore hair to its original colour. Particularly if you are going grey prematurely, it can help to prevent any more hairs going grey and will hopefully restore some colour to the ones that are already grey. It doesn’t always do this, and the results vary from person to person, but it will still halt the greying process. If you start using Bhringraj hair oil, you can stop hair greying until much later in life.
In addition, Bhringraj oil can make the texture of your hair much smoother and more even, can soften hair, makes hair grow thicker and in more areas, and just generally makes your hair much healthier and brighter.
Bhringraj oil is usually applied to the hair and rubbed into the scalp to get a good, even saturation of the oil. It can then be left in the hair for around an hour before being washed out with shampoo, or you can leave it in overnight for deeper, more concentrated effects. Either way, just a few washes with Bhringraj hair oil is beneficial for your hair, and you can start seeing results after just a two or three applications. It is recommended that you use this twice a week or so, but to get better results you can apply it every day.
