I have experimented with my hair like anything. My hair has suffered almost everything coloring, perming , straightening to name a few. But post treatment care was negligible in my case. In short I was the last person to take care of my hair.
When I went to Kerala for my delivery, Amma caught me. My hair was oiled to the extend that you could fry 1 or 2 vadas in that oil 😛 Now also that she is here with me, I am not spared. “Oil your hair, condition it properly, take care of your hair once when Anshika is asleep na?“ Amma is after me all the time. Coming back to the subject ; the post is about the review of one of the main ingredients in the pre and post natal hair care as per Ayurveda – its about Kottakkal Nilibhringadi keratailam.
Neelibhringadi keratailam was introduced by sister-in-law and we took over it. During my pregnancy, Amma used to massage a handful (yes literally) of oil into my scalp as it is supposed to cool the body. We use Nilibhringadi keratailam from Kottakal aryavaidya sala. Just to mention not only in pregnancy phase , anyone can use this oil for their hair.

As it has castor oil in it , this oil attracts dirt easily
I had been using it for a long time. I oil my hair and leave it overnight . I wash it off the next day with a mild shampoo and conditioner.
My Rating: 5 out of 5
NOTE : Those who can’t stand cold please refrain from using this oil. They may experience whole body pain, cold and cough after usage.
Will I recommend this product? Yes for sure . If you are looking for a beneficial traditional oil for your hair massage, then this is APT for you.
