How to wash off the hair oil?
Wait for at least 30 minutes before washing hair. Longer the delay, better (except for very oily hairs). It is best to use herbal hair wash powders to wash off the hair oil. One or two rounds of wash with hair wash powder will get rid off oil from hair. It is very fine, even if some amount of oiliness remains on the hair.
Traditional treatises mention cold water to wash hair and face. (Reference: Ashtanga Sangraha, Sutrasthana, Dinacharya chapter). But to wash oily hair, lukewarm water can also be used. Avoid very hot water for hair wash.
The oil as such does not have any side effects on external application. Some people may observe hair fall in initial few days. This is normal but hair regrowth starts after 2 – 3 weeks time.
In this herbal oil, the herbs are infused in the medium of sesame oil along with herb water decotion. Then the solid waste herb materials are filtered out. Thus, this oil contains oil soluble and water soluble phyto-active principles of medicinal herbs.

HI everyone, I am here to assure you all that this mahabringaraj oil is a wonderful oil. My hair had suffered from long processing hence split ends and hair fall, I had dandruff and my other parts of the body were all with scaly rashes especially the forearms and the legs. First time I used this oil I must admit I think my skin reacted and it itched allover for about ten days. Afterwards, the itching started to go and the whole body peeled a very strange powder off me everywhere on the body. It was so scary… but when all this stopped and everything started going back to normal I noticed that my skin on my legs and arms was smoother than before.. Unbelievably, the dandruff was gone. This all happened in about 6 weeks and today I use the oil like once a month and you should see my hair…. Wow! Did I even mention that am Black ethnic but this oil did not repel me it simply did it’s beautiful beautiful. I urge you all to use it faithfully. It works!
