Beauty & Fashion
I always had good and long hair and was not really bothered when people used to discuss about their hair problems and sought remedies to sort it out. But recently I have started noticing changes happening to my hair. My hair comb was full of broken hair stands after combing, which was a clear indication that my hair have started falling. Adding to this, I could see white or grey hair and dandruff particles in the comb and on my dressing table.
Oh God, am I hit by all sort of hair problems in such a short time? Have I to live with this thin bunch of hair all the rest of my life or am I going to be hairless or bald sooner or later? Worries started popping into my mind.
What can be the reason for all this? Only thing I can figure out was, life has changed a lot in the last couple of years. There is lot more of stress and travel in my life for both personal and official reasons than before. Are the environmental pollutants from travel to be blamed for this or is it the different types of water, hard or chlorinated that I come across in various places as I travel or is it the improper sleep and food habits, which I have been used to.
All I know was something must be done at the earliest to alleviate the current status of my hair and like everyone I too started searching over the internet for the best hair oils available in India.
There were all sorts of hair oils for sale in the market. There were hair growth oils, hair fall oils, hair oil for dandruff, hair oil for premature greying, hair fall control oil, hair regrowth oil, hair oil for hair loss, hair gain oil, anti dandruff hair oil, anti hair fall oil, herbal hair oil, ayurvedic har oil, essentials oils for hair, 5 ingredients hair oil, 10 ingredients hair oil, bringadi hair oil, bringaraj hair oil, amla hair oil, hibiscus hair oil, hair oil for men, hair oil for woman and the list goes on. …..! Someone please tell me which hair oil should I really use.
During a recent college reunion, I shared all my hair concerns, with my friends. Even though many brands were suggested, everyone seemed shifting across product offerings seeking effectiveness.
One of them insisted on a regular use of a brand called Fadlor hair oil, as a good one in all solution for all sorts of hair problems. Her husband had brought this hair oil during a visit to Kerala, for his balding problems and had been quite happy with it. She too started using it as it was available at home and soon fell in love with it.
Even though I had not heard of it, I thought of giving it a try. There was not much of availability for this product and the only option was to buy it from their website www.Fadlor.in or through Amazon India. Since there was an offer running in their site, I preferred to buy it from their site and got it delivered in a week’s time promptly.
It came neatly packaged in a double box to avoid damages in transit, placed inside a zip pouch, which I believe may be to avoid spillage, in case that happens unfortunately.
The bottle was of good quality plastic with a flip top cap and had a unique design for the packaging label which was very simple, but felt authentic. I found it to be neat, different and uncluttered compared to the usual stereo types of hair oil packaging, like a woman caricature with a lot of hair, herbal ingredients and a lot of claims highlighted all over it.
Quantity: 100 ml
30 ml (trial size for 5 days), 200 ml (routine size for 30 days) sizes are also available in their website. I chose the most popular 100 ml (love size for 15 days)
Price: Rs. 525 /-
There was a discount offer running in their site and I got it for Rs. 395 /-
Shelf Life: 2 years

How to use:-
Shake well before use. Apply oil on the Scalp and massage well for 5 minutes. Leave it on for a minimum of 30 minutes or overnight as desired. Cleanse with a mild shampoo & water.
Compared to my habit to oiling hair twice or thrice a week, the instruction provided was to use it continuously for 15 days. Some habits never die and I could only manage to use it 3 to 4 times a week. With my pattern of use the bottle lasted for a month.
I think this one overall worked for me as complete hair oil. I did feel some difference to my hair on the first use itself. After a week’s use, there was a noticeable change in my hair texture and hair fall had reduced considerably. In two weeks time the results were satisfying with the hair fall and dandruff problems almost stopped. In four weeks, there were no grey strands visible anywhere and really felt my hair to be very healthy than before. My hair now has a good black colour, volume and bounciness than before.
Pros of Fadlor hair oil:-
Very effective for controlling hair fall, dandruff and premature greying
Nicely penetrates the scalp and nourishes it well for new hair growth
Herbs in the oil are truly helpful and makes the hair smooth and shiny
Packaging is very travel friendly and has a zip pouch provided for extra protection
Cons of Fadlor hair oil:-
Felt the oil to be a bit sticky and the aroma to be a bit dense, but can’t expect it to be otherwise for a natural and herbal product
Initially felt the product to be a bit pricey, but it has proved for itself to be useful and worth the money
The oil can stain the cloth and need to be careful on using it, especially if you are leaving it on for overnight
Physical availability is very limited across India and will have to order it online.
Overall this has been a very functional product for me and I have placed the orders for a 200ml bottle of the product and a 30 ml my sister to try. If you have multiple hair problems and are looking for one product that can help you with all such concerns in one go, this definitely is the product for you. I strongly recommend it to all for regular use. A must try for both men and woman.
