What is Dabur Vatika Coconut Hair Oil?
The Dabur Vatika Coconut Hair Oil is a conditioner that promises stronger, thicker, shinier hair and better dandruff control. While claims made in advertisement rarely measure up to actual performance, the Dabur Vatika Coconut Hair Oil does live up to its claims for many people.
Among the listed ingredients for Dabur Vatika Coconut Hair Oil are coconut oil, milk, triphala, brahmi, henna, lemon, neem, rosemary oil, kapurkachri, soya extracts, aqua, Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E Acetate) and Butylated Hydroxy Toulene or TBHQ (tertiary butylhydroquinone).
The last two are used as preservatives, stabilizers or anti-oxidants and are quite common in cosmetics or pharmaceuticals and rated as safe for consumption in food in limited concentrations by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the USA and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) in the EU.
Is Dabur Vatika right for me?
To begin, you have to appreciate that the Dabur Vatika Coconut Hair Oil is a product that originates from India. The corollary to this would be that it is primarily formulated for Indians and therefore less likely to be suitable for those of other races or ethnicities. This is somewhat true as those with type 1 (straight) or type 2 (wavy) hair which is common among those of Indian descent are more likely to find it effective. Those with type 3 (curly) or type 4 (kinky or very curly) hair may find it useful too as you may readily find by reading reviews for the product but occasionally find it does not work for them.
If you number among those for whom the Dabur Vatika Coconut Hair Oil works, you will find that your hair will be smoother, shinier, healthier and easier to manage. A number of studies have shown that coconut oil is more effective in penetrating the hair fiber than mineral oil thus reducing hair damage through hygral fatigue (swelling and de-swelling due to water absorption and loss). Dryness of the hair and scalp will be reduced or disappear while dandruff will also be significantly reduced.
You may find that your hair starts growing much faster and in rare cases it may even induce new growth. Some users have also reported darkening of the hair which they attribute to the henna (a plant from which a natural dye may be made) or amla used.
The extremely low price makes it a great bargain for those who have tried it and loved it. The low cost also means that testing it does not stretch your budget by any means.
Things to watch out for:
Women who have used conditioners that are high in protein should have a reasonably good idea about how effective the Dabur Vatika Coconut Hair Oil will be for them. The Dabur Vatika Coconut Hair Oil is high in proteins and will suit those whose hair works well with conditioners that have high protein content.
The smell is something that those from the subcontinent would be familiar and comfortable with while those from other regions may find the tangy coconut and neem scent strange or too strong for comfort. This is largely down to personal taste and varies from person to person.
Our opinion on the Dabur Vatika Coconut Hair Oil:
The low price is a big plus point both for new buyers looking to test it and regular users. The considerable benefits ensure that trying out the Dabur Vatika Coconut Hair Oil is worth the risk of the paltry sum required to purchase it. The Dabur Vatika Coconut Hair Oil gets a definite and hearty yes from us.
