Product Review Dabur Vatika Cocount Hair OilMy Experience: I have utilized this product in several different ways. The first way was as a pre-poo! I chose this because Coconut is one of the only oils which can penetrate the hair shaft and actual provide moisture to the strand of hair. I shampooed after using this in my pre-poo mixture and my hair was amazingly soft. I also use this oil in the LOC method and for sealing my ends. My favorite way is to use this product with my stylers for my initial twists and re-twisting. The point is no matter how I have used this product, I have loved the results!!! Prior to using this product, I outlawed Coconut from my regimen, but since I discovered Vatika, I am in love. I truly believe it is the mixture of the Ayurvedic Herbs!

Fragrance: The fragrance is very distinct It is now flowery or perfumy. It is a mixture of lemony-soapy scent with herbs mixed in!

Product Review Dabur Vatika Cocount Hair OilResults: After using this product on my low-porosity hair, I am sold on its claims. It moisturized my hair! My ends were sealed and my twist-out was extremely moisturized. My hair held onto its moisture for a few days.

Moisture: My hair felt soft and moisturized while using the product and days after. I did not have a greasy residue, flakes, or dry thirsty hair. This product is especially useful for people with low porosity hair like me because we have problems getting moisturizing products to penetrate our tightly sealed cuticles. Well, Vatika Hair Oil is the answer to our hair problems!

Price: $3:49! Enough said! I picked this up from my local Indian store!

Final Thoughts: Definitely worth a try and for $3.49 it’s a steal!! This is on of my Holy Grail products! It is also great to use when you are rocking a wash and go!

    What is Butylated hydroxyl toluene? It sounds ominous, you know like bad for you. Do you know what it is and/or what it is derived from??

    • Sonia Francis

      Here what I found
      What is BHT? Butylated Hydroxytoluene, or BHT, is an anti-oxidant which reacts with oxygen free radicals to slow down the autoxidation rate of ingredients in a product that can cause changes in the taste or color. As such, it is primarily used to prevent fats in foods from becoming rancid – but it is also used in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, jet fuels, rubber, petroleum products, electrical transformer oil, and embalming fluid. Sure sounds like BHT is something that should definitely be in our food, right?

      Dangers of BHT

      Turns out this additive, used in all the above products, has a scary MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) that says the following:

      Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment.

      Combustible.

      Ingestion causes Abdominal pain. Confusion. Dizziness. Nausea. Vomiting.

      The substance may have effects on the liver.

      The substance is harmful to aquatic organisms.

        All that, and companies use it in foods that we buy to eat? Some people love money so much that they have truly sold their souls to mammon. Harmful to aquatic organisms, used in EMBALMING fluid bet it is also flammable–the only upside is if it is the last ingredient then only very small quantities of it must be in the oil and it is being used as a preservative. Castor oil has ricin, which in its natural state is a deadly poison, this is one of the poisons sent through the mail to people after 911. Anything can be deadly in the wrong form or in the wrong amounts or used for the wrong things.

    I’ve used it, but I didn’t find it worked any better than regular coconut oil.

    • PerfectPurple

      I totally agree with you.

  • Imani

    I absolutely love Vatika – I love the scent and the moisture it is a staple in my hair regime which only include Vatika and regular organic coconut oil

  • Alecia Hutton

    I too love it. From the first try I knew this would work for my. I like EVCO as well but I’ve never got instant curl definition as I did when using the Vatika oil. I added it to my prepoo and fell in love with it.

  • queenbee9

    I use Vatika oil as my pre-pre-poo meaning I use it first, then wash it out and put in my pre poo of cantu and JBCO then wash. Vatika makes hair feel thicker and realty strong, but it does not soften my hair. Once I pre poo, I have all the advantages of the hair strength combined with the softness of my pre poo and in that state, I go on to co wash, dc etc

  • Lunye Ladybug Fowler

    I love it…I use it for sealing, as a hot oil treatment, in all my pre poos and mixed in my deep conditioner. I love that it has ayurvedics in it.

  • Sev

    It has toluene !!!! Worst poison !
