I am very much into haircare right now. I am searching for & trying new hair products, to give maximum support and care for my hair. That’s how I found out about Banjara’s Hibiscus powder. Hibiscus flowers are pretty known for their power to promote hair growth. Actually one can even make use of the hibiscus flowers growing in their gardens to make a DIY hair mask. There are tons of tutorials on how to do that, on YouTube. I don’t have hibiscus flowers at my home though and on my recent trip to the shopping mall, I found this pack which I thought would be great to try out. Hibiscus is effective in combating hair loss, dandruff and scalp irritation. It is also used as a remedy for premature greying. The herb acts as a good conditioner and moisturizer for the hair – making it soft and shiny.
The pack comes with 5 sachets in them. Each of these packs contain 20 gms and it’s packed in such a way for easy usage. For each application, you can open one sachet and use it’s complete contents. I have seen bulk packs of this powder long before. In such cases, you need to transfer the powder into an airtight container so that it doesn’t solidify into little blocks over time. Banjara’s easy packaging helps to avoid this inconvenience.
The hibiscus powder is brick red in color. I have long hair now (just above my hips) and 20 gms is enough to cover my scalp and hair. If you have short hair, a sachet is good for 2 applications and if you have very thick hair, you might need to use 2 sachets each time. Though my hair is long, it’s fine in texture.
To use this, simply transfer a sachet’s content into a bowl and add just enough water to make it into a thick paste (or a level of consistency you personally like). The paste is a dark colored one. Apply it to your hair for 20 minutes (that’s the instruction on the packaging) and rinse off with water. I usually apply it for 40 mins. It’s herbal and putting it on for extra time won’t hurt. I don’t use shampoo while washing it off. Also, while applying it, part your hair section by section and apply it. This way you will cover your hair and scalp completely. Though the package suggests using it thrice a week, I been using it twice a week only. It has a light, natural smell that stays on lightly on the hair for a few hours.
I have completed one entire pack now (five applications). One of the main results I noticed after using this is that my hair is more black in color and has a glossy shine to it. Overall, I am in love with this and I am sure to check out the other hair care powders by Banjara’s.
Price : Rs. 90 (AED 5.07) for 100 gms.
I bought this from Navaratna Hypermarket, Moonnupeediga, Kerala. This product can be found in any leading supermarkets.
