I am a 30-year-old male. I suffered mild hair loss in my mid-twenties. I didn’t care until it got to a point where my hairline started moving backward.
And, I started losing more hair than ever.
I felt stuck, not knowing what to do to prevent myself from going bald. I started looking for hair loss products, particularly hair growth oil.
Eventually, I decided to try out an Ayurvedic hair loss solution with no side effects.
And that’s how I found Indulekha oil.
I searched for a few reviews online, and also browsed through several images and videos showing the before and after photographs of people who tried it on.
While a few photos and videos were convincing, some did not look natural at all. Here is a video from James Paul, who was not particularly very happy with the results from Indulekha.
Despite spending a lot of time going through such photos and videos, hundreds of customer reviews and complaints, I had absolutely no idea whether Indulekha oil would be helpful for me.
But I badly wanted to know how hard it would be for me to see good results from using this oil.
It came to a point where I thought ‘enough is enough’.
I decided I would be better off trying it myself rather than just read through random reviews on Mouthshut and other websites including Amazon.
I wanted to save myself some trouble and test the oil to see its actual results. So I bought a 100 ml Indulekha hair oil pack that comes in a selfie bottle.
In the rest of the post, I am going to give you a detailed account of my observations about this all new hair formula.
We’ll have a look at everything that is there to know about the Indulekha bringha hair oil.
From packaging to results, we will go over all the things in detail so you can make a well-informed decision as to whether it is worth buying Indulekha hair oil for the amazing results that the maker claims it can give you.
Before I jump in, let me go over the contents of the pack so you know what to expect when you are all set to open the pack yourself.
As shown in the image below, the pack contains the following:
- a selfie bottle,
- an applicator attachment and
- an extra cap just in case you end up losing the one it comes with and
- a handy guide with usage instructions and general information about the oil and its ingredients.

The Selfie Bottle Design
The most notable thing about this oil is perhaps not its smell, texture, or anything about the oil in itself.
It is the way it is packaged and presented to you.
Yes, I am talking about the design of the bottle, which, by the way, is patented.
OK, let’s go through the good things first.
- The selfie bottle, as it is called, is characteristic of a smart and unique design. Meant to make applying hair oil an easy affair, this selfie bottle features a unique design with a special applicator tip that has comb-like bristles. When squeezed, the oil seeps through to the holes of the applicator for easy application.
- The main advantage of the patented design is that it allows for easy application of the oil right where you want it. Whether you want to get some oil onto the scalp area or nourish the tips of hair strands or just apply it all over from root to end, the selfie bottle design makes it very easy for you.
Now onto the not so good things.
- The bottle seems to leak some oil to the sides when used upside down. More to the point, when squeezed in an inverted position, the bottle lets the oil pass through right to the tip of the applicator fast, but not without spilling some from its mouth. We’d have liked to see a well-sealed covering wrap around the areas formed between the cap and the mouth of the bottle so that the oil doesn’t seep through from the gap.
- If it’s a bit frustrating to see oil drip down from the sides of the bottle then it’s even more so to find the sides get sticky and oily all too often. What this means is that there is a good chance of dirt and grime accumulating on the sides of the body, making it slightly uncomfortable to hold the bottle. Unless you store it in a place sealed from dust or lock it away in a container, the sides of the Indulekha selfie bottle will need to be wiped clean every time some oil is drawn out of it.
- Instead of just sliding down as you pull it through the hair, the applicator, at times, tends to get stuck causing a bit of a tangle. Therefore people with short hair would find applying oil using the applicator a lot easier than those with long hair.
How to Use Indulekha Hair Oil
Is it Good or Bad?
Well, it’s hard to tell.
Being an Ayurvedic product curated from powerful herbs, this oil cannot be bad for your hair. I can tell you that.
Each and every herbal ingredient that has gone into making this Ayurvedic oil has something different, which, on paper, can help treat most of your hair problems, and that’s a good thing.
However, you may not see any immediate results at all.
Yes, many reviews of Indulekha bringha oil raise serious doubts about its effectiveness. I can only speak for myself so I thought it would make sense to put out a list of what I think are the advantages and disadvantages of using this product.
Check it out for yourself below.
What are the Side Effects of Using Indulekha Bringha Oil?
There are no serious side effects to be wary about unless you have a serious allergy to some of the ingredients mentioned above or something like that.
Ayurvedic preparations, in general, are considered safe to use as long as they are made in compliance with the ancient method of preparation- for example preparing the active ingredient using the whole plant as against a particular part of the plant.
As was mentioned earlier, this is a specially prepared Ayurvedic formula made using whole plants (of a variety of different herbs) that are known to nourish your hair and make it stronger from the inside. While it’s generally true that not all Ayurvedic formulas suit all kinds of people, but they never show drastic side effects.
While it’s generally true that not all Ayurvedic formulas suit all kinds of people, but they never show drastic side effects.
That being said, if you have an allergy to one or more of the ingredients in this Ayurvedic oil, you might feel some sort of itchiness on your scalp to say the least.
Does Indulekha Oil Help with Hair Growth?
It’s a tricky question and I don’t have a simple answer for it yet.
I would say that Indulekha oil has, in part, helped me regrow hair in certain areas. Let me add deets.
Applying Indulekha oil has made my hair strands look thicker and healthier than they were before, adding a bit of volume to my hair in general.
And, healthier hair means fewer chances of plaguing issues such as dandruff, split ends and higher chances of consistent hair growth without breakage.
What’s more important is that the extra volume and length of hair means I can make my hair cover certain bald patches in my head.
Though I would have liked to have seen more growth in certain areas, I can confidently say that Indulekha oil has provided decent results overall.
I think I can expect to get better results with the Indulekha oil if I start applying it more frequently than I do right now. And, keep a watch on my diet.
As you’d know, keratin is such a vital component for hair follicles to grow and you simply cannot apply any hair care oil and expect to see good results unless you get enough protein in your diet.
Bringha Oil: My Experience and Recommendation
For all those wondering whether the Indulekha bringha oil had any effect on hair growth, here is what you need to know.
Well it does appear to work- to some extent. And this hair oil did seem to make my hair shinier and kept it nourished. But I need to make sure it is not just a placebo effect.
Having said that, the results so far have been quite encouraging that I would consider sticking to this treatment for some more weeks.
For sure, it is quite exciting to apply this oil all over your hair and wait for it to regrow. And, I’d be extremely happy to have seen some quick and impressive growth.
It didn’t happen.
Nevertheless, I want to give it some time to see what kind of results I can expect from using Indulekha hair oil on a much more regular basis.
I’ll be sure to report back soon with more details and photos.
Color and Consistency
The Indulekha oil is red in color, more of water melon-ish red.
As for consistency, it is not very thick per se. In fact, it is slightly on the thinner side and there is a bit of stickiness to it but nothing over the top.
You don’t have to worry about whether your hair will remain sticky even after you wash it off.
This oil, like many Ayurvedic oils, has a strong odor.
I understand that this hair oil has such a powerful odor, but to cover that strong smell, the makers could have chosen an odor that was not that strong or should have added a perfume ingredient to make it more pleasant.
The odor remained even after washing my hair, and that was a bit of a minor problem to me.
One More Observation
Some users confirmed in their reviews that it was frustrating to see the bottle leak especially when held in an upside down position.
Personally, I’ve had no leak from the bottle. Even if it did a little, I wouldn’t be too worried about it.
Results So Far
Before I announce the results of using Indulekha oil, let me give you a sense of how I look at using hair growth oils.
For me, hair loss or hair regrowth is a bigger problem than could be merely solved by such hair care products like Ervamatin, Dhathri, and Indulekha etc.
I firmly believe that it takes more than a magic hair care solution to have a fairly good chance of hair regrowth.
The way I see it, it is important is to keep your hair well maintained with nourishing oils that give your hair shine and strength, to take enough Protein in your diet, and to do everything you can possibly do to avoid stress.
With the Indulekha oil, you have the first one covered though.
Indeed, it has enough natural ingredients in it to treat your hair woes but it can’t give you excellent results on its own.
You need to take care of the other two things mentioned above.
I’ve seen good results so far. Although it seems to have helped a little in stopping hair loss from aggravating, there’s not much to write about its ability to help hair regrow.
But I don’t want to give up on it just yet for not giving me results soon enough.
Maybe I should give this hair oil some more time, see whether applying it on a regular basis helps hair regrow and post an update in the coming weeks.
FAQs and Final Recommendation
Before I give my verdict, I want to go through some frequently asked questions about the Indulekha oil.
- Does this turn grey or white hair black?
- How frequently and how long should I use this oil to see good results?
- Will it resolve my dandruff problems?
- Will I see hair growth by using Indulekha hair oil?
- Can it prevent the onset of hereditary baldness? No
Except for the last question, there is no better/safe answer to give than say “it depends”. Yes, hair fall, hair growth or hair greying is a complex phenomenon where many factors such as age, stress, allergy, genetics etc. are at play.
Each of us is different and our body responds to such hair fall treatments in different ways. That said, it might not be a bad idea to try this hair oil once and see what you get out of it- for two reasons.
- It doesn’t have any side effects for you to be wary about.
- And, it doesn’t hurt to test.
However, if you are struggling with heavy hair fall or dandruff issues or some sort of an allergy, it is a wise thing to consult with a dermatologist and take their opinion first.
My recommendation would be for you to try Indulekha oil once and see how useful it is for you. Well, it might be worth trying once, just to find out how helpful it is.
