Aroma Magic Hair Oil Review

Hello Lovely Ladies!!!!

I am here with the review of Blossom Kochchar’s Aroma Magic Hair Oil (hair nourisher).  Before I begin, I must let you know that I have dry and frizzy hair, but at the same time, during summers, my scalp tends to sweat a lot.  I suffer from split ends and dandruff (in winters). For the last few years, I am following a routine of oil treatement once in two weeks, deep conditioning through henna packs and shampoo-conditioner-hair serum regimen at bath time.  This has controlled much of the dryness and frizzy texture.

Now, another thing is that I love “champi”- a healthy dose of oil massage really soothes and comforts me apart from managing my distressed tresses.  I have been using Parachute coconut oil and Bajaj almond drops for the last few years and more or less, I am satisfied with the result.

The last time that I visited the Aroma Magic counter, apart from the choco pack, I bought this hair oil just to see if their hair products were as good as the skin products.

Aroma  Magic Hair Oil

Price:

160 INR for 220 ml.

Shelf Life:

2 years from the date of manufacturing.

What the Company Claims:

A special blend of plant oils and herbal extracts that nourish hair, stimulates hair growth, and prevents hair thinning. Beneficial for dry, brittle and textured hair. (Please note that I haven’t found any information regarding this product in their website).

Directions To Use:

Massage onto hair and scalp, leave on for 20 minutes for absorption, wash off with triphala shampoo or cream shampoo.

Active Ingredients:

Extracts of  triphala, shikakai, fenugreek, sesame oil and pure essential oils of rosemary, basil, thyme & lemon.

Details

Packaging:

The oil comes in a plastic semi-transparent bottle with a flip-flop cap.  You can easily make out how much of the oil is left.  The cap is a bit tight and difficult to open if you are trying with oil in your hands, nothing much attractive about the packaging.

Hair oil

My Take on Aroma Magic Hair Oil:

This is a bit thick in consistency, much like the Parachute coconut oil. Those who have oily hair may prefer lightweight oils, but this is perfect for my dry hair.  It is transparent, no artificial colour. It has got a typical ayurvedic smell, which is not overwhelming, but actually pleasant.

Coming to the ingredients list, I thought it would be helpful for you guys if I mentioned what each ingredient does to your hair. So, I did a bit of research and to sum up, almost all the ingredients stimulate hair follicles or prevent hair fall.  Shikakai cleanses, sesame oil gives you protection from UV rays, rosemary strengthens hair roots, moisturises and prevents dandruff, basil too moisturises dull hair, and lastly lemon helps in prevention and controlling of dandruff.

I prefer to heat the oil a little bit for better penetration into the follicles and increase the vascularity of the scalp. I leave it for 1 hour onto my tresses before shampooing. As this is a thick hair oil, you may need 2-3 washes (I dilute the shampoo with water and it comes off easily with two washes), a conditioner may not be required after this. Later, when the hair is semi dry, I apply a hair serum.

I have been using this oil once in a week for two months now and I feel it does have some moisturising property as my hair behaves well after the oil treatment and there is some shine. There’s no itching in the scalp, dandruff is under control, nothing in particular about hair growth, but it must have controlled the hairfall to some extent and losing a few strands in a day is considered normal. So, there’s no big difference between this oil and my earlier regime of coconut+almond oil.

Pros:

  • It conditions the scalp well.
  • Moisturises hair and imparts some shine.
  • Controls dandruff.
  • Does not cause hair fall.
  • Makes hair soft, smooth and manageable.
  • Sturdy, semi-transparent bottle with a flip-flop cap.
  • Mild ayurvedic fragrance, not over the top.
  • Shelf life and key ingredients mentioned.
  • Affordable.

Cons:

  • Heavy and greasy, not suitable for oily hair.
  • Needs 2-3 washes to clean.
  • Does not cause any new growth of hair.

Would I Recommend?

Yes, you may give this a try, but don’t expect a miracle.

Would I Buy Again?

Maybe yes, but first, I have to finish this one because a lot of it is still left.

My Rating:

3.5/5

Hope you liked it!

Nice..!! In my case..as oiling (irrespective of any brand) was leading to Dandruff..have stopped it since many years. It cured Dandruff & hairfall but texture of hair has suffered A LOT.. :waaa: So now me oiling just on shaft..avoiding totally on roots..so any viscous oil works for me. Right now using Olive oil… :)
