The fact that this bottle of hair oil has been one of the highest-grossers at Nykaa for two years in a row is enough for you to gauge how effective it is. Well, the world of hair care never went back to being traumatic after this revolutionary organic explosion. The folks at Indulekha time-travelled to another era, took the oil game to another level, and then bottled it in the smartest format ever. Thirteen Ayurvedic ingredients, led by Bhringhraj, come together in this one-of-a-kind strategic bottle, designed for maximum utilisation of every drop.
Unfortunately, as is the case with all market successes, spotting a fake bottle of the Indulekha Bringha Hair Oil
is now a piece of cake. So, if you’re an existing or prospective member of the Indulekha fan club, you need to the bookmark this STAT.
HOW TO TELL A FAKE BEFORE BUYING IT?
- The outer package of a fake bottle is a quick tell. The print will be of cheap or poor quality and the color will be a shade different. In most cases, the outer case will be visibly damaged.
- The outer cover of the bottle will also be of cheap or poor quality. The label on a fake bottle will peel off easily. Even when its on, chances are it wont be aligned correctly.
- The selfie comb is a critical part of the Indulekha Hair Oil. The comb of a fake bottle will be broken, will have rough edges, or the bristles wont be in a straight line.
- While an original bottle (all bottles manufactured after March 01, 2019) will have the code digitally printed on it, a fake bottle will have a manually printed one or might not even have it.
HOW TO TELL A FAKE AFTER BUYING?
- Let the bottle sit in the refrigerator for an hour. If its an original, the contents shall solidify since it is coconut-based. If it doesnt, then its a fake product based on either mineral or vegetable oil.
- The color of the actual formula is a light reddish brown. The oil present in the original bottle contains thick concoction of potent herbs. Be sure its a fake if the oil is transparent or green in color.
- Expect an inherent Ayurvedic/herbal fragrance from an original bottle. A fake will have added fragrances and hence, will smell pleasant.
Now that thats out of the way, lets focus on the correct application technique of this wonder. Nope, this champi doesnt work like your usual ones.
- Section your hair because the critical part lies underneath, honey. Contrary to popular belief, hair oil is meant for the scalp which is where the roots lie, not the length of your mane.
- Squeezing the bottle twice while running the bristles of the selfie comb through your scalp dispenses the correct amount of oil. Once the formula is evenly distributed throughout, massage it in with your fingertips using light to medium pressure.
- Leave on for three to four hours before washing it off with the Indulekha Bringha Hair Cleanser. Since chemical-laden shampoos is currently the biggest evil power of the biz’, this out-and-out herbal ’poo is the break your tresses are silently screaming for.
- To nip hair fall problems straight in the bud, make this an integral part of your hair care regime at least thrice a week. The brand claims that you’ll witness visible improvement in four months and frankly, we second it.
