I was one of those 90’s kids whose mom’s would create a ritual of hair chumpy every weekend for the entire school life.
Lately I have started using 100% organic and natural products and Kama is one brand that I truly trust on that part. I have a lot of organic products for my skin but I thought of trying something for my hair. I went to Kama store and I bought their Bringadi Hair Treatment.
This intensive hair treatment is prescribed in Ayurveda for lush hair growth and to prevent hair loss, dandruff and premature graying, naturally conditioning. This combination of herbs, processed in pure sesame oil and milk, includes indigo (neeli), eclipta alba and gooseberry, said in Ayurveda to promote hair growth. Balloon vine helps maintain a healthy scalp. Liquorice with its antiseptic properties protects against bacterial and fungal infections.
I had a thorough research on its ingredient list and I found out that it has-
- Cardiospermum Halicacabum Linn, known to fight against the common problem of hair loss;
- Phyllanthus Emblica, known to nourish hair and control premature graying;
- Sesamum Indicum Oil, Lavendula Angustifolia Oil and Cocos Nucifera Extract, are considered great for hair growth treatments;
- Glycyrrhiza Glabra and Rosamarinus Officinalis Oil which are anti-dandruff;
- Eclipta Alba (Bhringraj) is also known as food for hair which supports hair growth.
Kama Ayurveda Bringadi intensive hair treatment comes in a transparent plastic bottle but since the product inside is dark brown in colour so the bottle looks brown itself. It has a golden aluminium cap and a plastic cover on the opening. Packaging looks good as an Ayurvedic product but this is not travel friendly as it may leak from the cap.
The oil has got a typical Ayurvedic like smell which is neither to pleasant nor too over powering at the same time. Also surprisingly, the oil isn’t too heavy or sticky as a herbal oil and in instead very light in texture. But after all it is oil and needs shampooing properly.
While applying, not much is needed for use. Just 2 tbsp(approx.) is required to spread it on the entire scalp and the lengths. I massage this for a good 10 minutes on my scalp which helps in the blood circulation which helps in root strengthening. Its suggested to be kept for 30 minutes, but I usually end up keeping it for an hour before washing it with a shampoo in cold water.
I have used this for more than a month now (once a week), and I have noticed that it leaves my dry hair soft and shiny after every use. I was also blowdrying and straightening my hair a lot lately, which had led to really dry ends and dull hair, but the oil does damage recovery too. It hasn’t recovered completely yet, but yes the oil has helped a lot!
It retails for INR 995/- for a product size of 250 ml and you may get it either on amazon.com or at any Kama Ayurveda’s store.
Even though the price is a bit higher than the usual hair oils and the smell is very strong and not particularly pleasant for all, I will still recommend this to everyone suffering from hair problems as well as for those want to maintain their hair to prevent any damage. It is a natural product hence no harm in trying it out, you might just need a break from coconut oil!
