Good Morning Gorgeous!!

I hope that all is well in your world. I've been meaning to mention this oil so here goes. Dabur Vatika oil is one of my fav hair oils. It is basically, enriched coconut oil. I am absolutely in love with it! I use it as an overnight treatment. When I co-wash it out in the morning, my hair has this extra softness to it. It's not terribly expensive either. You can purchase it for under $10 at your local Indian grocery or online.

Ingredients include:
Coconut Oil, Neem, Brahmi, Fruit Extracts of Amla, Bahera and Harar, Kapur kachri, Henna, Rosemary Oil, Lemon Oil, TBHQ (Whatever that is. I'll have to look that one up), & Fragrance.

I've read on some hair threads that it has an awful odor to it, but I don't get that. It really smells great to me.

I use this along w/my other fav hair oils, Qhemet's Indian Macassar Conditioning Oil and Komaza Care Hair Nourishment Oil.

What oils are you using, if any?....


  1. I used to use Vatika daily for years. It is good stuff!

  2. Hi, I've used indian hair oil but haven't come across this brand. Thanks for the sharing it with us. I'll look for it and try it if I find it. :-)

  3. I've had my eye on this for awhile. I think it would be great for oil rinsing.

  4. Should my hair be dry or wet/damp before applying this oil?

  5. Hi CallaLily

    I always apply it to dry hair.

  6. Kcurly, it is definitely great for oil rinsing. It works well as a pre-poo treatment as well.

    ChocolateOrchid, I agree. The smell is great. It's a mild citrus, coconut smell. I love it!
