It is very common for me to face a lot of hair woes in winter. Apart from an itchy scalp and dandruff, my hair becomes dry and I have absolutely frightening hair-loss. One of the regimes that I follow not just in the winter, but all year around is oiling my hair. When one of favourite brands sent across their fast selling product, the Bhringraj and Methika Hair oil for a review, I was more than glad to use it for the winters.
Benefits of a head massage
The first whiff of the oil reminded me of an oil regime that I used to follow as a teenager. I used to heat the coconut oil and add a few fenugreek (methi) seeds to it to provide nourishment to my hair. It is strange how some aromas can trigger forgotten memories.
Coming back to the Bhringraj and Methika oil from Soultree, even though I was using it in the winter, I did not need to warm the oil before application. It had not solidified as normally hair oils would in the season. I took a liberal amount of the oil the first time and I used it as a coconut oil moisturizing therapy. For the consequent uses, I used just enough to nourish the scalp and I let the oil soak in overnight.
Two of the main ingredients in this healing coconut oil include bhringraj and methi seeds. Bhringraj is one of the most important and nourishing ingredients that is commonly used in hair care. Not only does it prevent premature greying of hair, but it also promotes hair growth and add some shine and volume to your hair. If you suffer from dandruff issues or itching and dryness of the scalp then, you need to use a hair oil with this ingredient to tackle the hair issues.
Methi or Fenugreek has been always been recommended for hair care as it helps to strengthen the hair roots. You can also soak half a cup of methi seeds overnight and grind to a smooth paste in the morning and apply as a hair pack to provide an extra nourishment to your hair.
When you have a combination of the two best ingredients in pure coconut oil, you can very well be sure that the oil will work wonders on your hair. I am the type who loves a head massage! I head to a salon at least twice a month to get a head massage done professionally. Apart from promoting a healthy scalp, the benefits of a head massage also include prevention of premature greying, renewing energy levels and complete relaxation that is more than welcome at the end of a tiring day. I have always preferred to let the oil soak in overnight for better results. I find that more nourishing that letting the oil stay for an hour or two.

How to use
Price, Shelf Life and Availability
Priced at INR 345, you can buy this oil from Flipkart. Priced at INR 350, this 120 ml bottle is packed with the health benefits that your tresses need. I have been using this every alternate day for the past fortnight and I have noticed less dryness in the scalp and significantly lesser hair-fall.
One bottle with regular application of at least thrice a week will last you approximately 3 months if you have shoulder length hair, that makes it roughly INR 100/month. That is not a bad deal if you want to rejuvenate and protect your tresses.
