Review : Banjara’s Hibiscus Hair Care Powder!


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.

  1. Hi Naznin,
    I ordered the same pack online.. But i’m confused whether to apply it before or after shampoo.
    Shall I avoid applying oil to my hairs when using it because only this paste doesn’t remove the oil from hairs.
    Can I apply hair oil overnight and then in the morning apply this paste and then do the shampoo.
    Kindly suggest.

    • Hi Manisha.. You can apply this paste, then shampoo. Do oiling on another day. Don’t combine both. After doing this, take a day break, then apply oil (overnight or couple of hours before bathing) and shampoo.

  2. Hello guys,

    Will this product be helpful for hair growth, since I m loosing hair at high rate and my scalp is visible, could ypu please suggest me further about this product n routine that I should follow.

    Mahesh patil.

  3. Hello Naznin. Can I combine equal amounts of hibiscus powder with amla powder and neem powder to make a hair mask ? I have fairly dry hair. Thank you.

  4. Hi Naznin,

    I have grey hair, and also my hair is quite frizzy. I came to know about this product from one of my friend. Can I mix Amla, Hibiscus,Shikakai, Neem and Bhringraj and add oil and apply to my hair. Will this help? Kindly advise.

    • Hi!. I think it’s best to use insividually to get full benefits instead of mixing all. Amla might be the best one for you.

  5. Hello Naznin…
    Love your blog, Is this is 100% pure hibiscus flower powder? Please reply,If it pure I would love to try this one in making a hair oil.

  6. Naznin..
    Please do post a pic of your long beautiful hair if you don’t mind. Also share your hair care regimen that gave you long hair.

    • To say the truth, of late, I haven’t given my hair the time of the day because my hair became so damaged that it takes intense caring (oiling regularly etc) to keep it looking good. Once I am back on a good routine, I’ll post about it. Sweet of you to ask though dear..

  7. Naznin…
    Can I mix warmed extra virgin olive oil with Banjara hibiscus powder to use as hair oil? The coconut oil is too greasy.

  8. Hi Nazin, hope you’re well. I just bought the hibiscus and Amla pack. I wanted to ask you, do I need to wet my hair before applying the thick paste?
