Dabur Vatika Enriched Olive Hair Oil Review

Hello Everyone

                               While scrolling through my FB page last month, I came across a nice giveaway post by Be Beautilicious wherein the participants were supposed to enter the giveaway in 2 phases...

1. Simply answering the giveaway question to win phase 1.
2. Using the giveaway product for few days and sharing the testimonial (ofcourse, only for the Winners of Phase 1) .

Here is the link of the giveaway post by Be Beautilicious where she offered the Dabur Vatika Enriched Olive Hair Oil packs ...

I found the idea quite interesting and could not resist participating in WEEK 1 itself and luckily won the same :)

I received my prize hamper quite soon after winning and it consisted of 2 packs (100ml, 200ml) of Dabur Vatika Enriched Olive Hair Oil...

So, here i enter PHASE 2 becuase i've been using this oil for last few days and will be reviewing the oil today ....

An effective hair oil is the most wannable product for everyone who is in love with his/her hair like i'm ;) 
Dabur Vatika Olive Hair oil is formulated with three active ingredients that are perfect remedy to most of our hair problems, which are..
* Olives: to help treat problems like dandruff n flaky skin.
* Almond Protein: to prevent hair loss, provide shine and strengthen hair.
* Aloe Vera: to reduce irritation on scalp.

Other than these 3, some more ingredients of good old times have also been mixed well for reaping more beneficial properties of each like ...
*Bhringraj (an Ayurvedic herb used to maintain and rejuvenate hair),
*Hibiscus ( an edible red flower believed to encourage hair growth by stimulating circulation, reduce split ends and prevent pre-mature greying of the hair strands),
*Cyclomethicone (a clear, colorless liquid that gives silky & slippery feeling to the touch)   *Vitamin E Acetate

Quantity: 200 ml
Price: Rs.120/-
Shelf Life: 2 yrs from the date of manufacturing

My Experience with Dabur Vatika Enriched Olive Hair Oil:

Let me begin with a confession...I had been a gal with gifted dark long tresses that i used to call my CROWNING BEAUTY. There was set hair care regime that i used to follow without a miss. But for past few years, I have NEGLECTED my  hair to greater extent due to my overburdened schedule. I knew my hair demand much needed food for them, but i've been careless.

But, I'm feeling blessed that i started using Dabur Vatika Hair oil and said GOOD BYE to my hair problems.
The oil is in green color and of quite running consistency, so i found it easy to apply. As i applied it on my undernourished hair with my fingertips in circular motion, it gave a cooling effect to my dry scalp. For the next few minutes, I could smell its strong fragrance (might not be the same case with everyone) which was a bit uneasy for me due to my sensitive nose. But gradually as i left the oil on my hair for few minutes, i was comfortable n relaxed with no such irritation in my nose.

The oil is quite light and non-greasy on application;  so i was really pleased to imagine that on a certain working day, I would be able to just rub a little olive oil on my fingers and run them through my hair after styling for smoother non-frizzy hair :)
You can see how my oily  hair looked like BEFORE and AFTER oiling --

I decided to keep the oil on my hair overnight and to wash it the next day. Here I want to make a point that I always use fresh water (even in winters) to wash my hair to avoid getting flaky scalp. Since this oil is less greasy than usual mustartd oil or coconut oil, it washed off without much effort leaving my hair more voluminous, healthy-looking and lusturous. Infact I felt no need of conditioning my hair after head bath.

After its regular use for last few weeks, I can claim that this olive oil rich in vitamins E and antioxidants seals the moisture in my hair and minimizes dandruff considerably. The hair fall rate has dipped down pretty well and my comb comes out neat without many broken hair from roots.

Talking about the packaging, the oil comes in a transparent plastic bottle with Flip-Open kind of cap which is not lockable tightly. So I don't think that this bottle is travel-friendly. I've been careful to press the cap properly, still a drop or two leaked out somehow.

I even tried to use this oil to get rid of my severe headache few days back in lukewarm state followed by head massage. And it worked wonders.

Completely Budget Friendly
Harmonious Ingredients
Easy to Apply and Wash off
Easily Available
Relatively Non-Sticky, Yet Equally Nourishing
Makes Hair More Pliable
No Adverse Effect on Hair

Packaging Not Travel Friendly

Conclusively, my hair have found a worthy companion in Dabur Vatika Enriched Olive Hair Oil and I'm more than satisfied with the outcome. So it will be surely in my shopping list next time onwards. :)
I'm looking forward to get those similar heart-warming compliments for my hair from family and friends in coming days that will boost my confidence once again...

Happy Hair Care!!
