A simple task like applying hair oil can involve a lot of intricacies. According to Ayurvedic texts, applying oil to your scalp and hair helps in strengthening your hair and improving their quality.

In Sanskrit, the process of applying oil to one's hair and scalp is known as Murdha Taila. Murdha Taila (applying oil to your hair) helps them grow thicker, shinier and softer. It also helps in stimulating the sense organs and reducing facial wrinkles.

To be able to reap the benefits of applying hair oil, it's important to apply it in the proper Ayurvedic manner and at right time, as well.

The way you should be applying hair oil depends on the purpose you want to apply hair oil for:

#1 To Improve The Quality Of Hair

The quality our hair is said to be good when hair growth is improving, split ends are prevented, premature greyness is prevented and hair has become softer with a lustre.

Amrutam recommends you to apply oil gently to your hair and scalp before your sleep time and let the oil reach the roots overnight and you can wash your hair the next morning with Kuntal Care Hair Shampoo with lukewarm water. It is recommended that you apply Kuntal Care Hair Oil frequently. Although, you should not wash your hair more than two to three times a week. Especially if you have long hair length.

Applying hair oil after washing your hair is not advised to people, as the oil can attract dust to your hair because of high levels of pollution these days and the harsh rays of the sun.

If you have Pitta imbalance or if you suffer from frequent headaches or rashes on your scalp, you should avoid using heated oil for your scalp and hair.

Amrutam Face Clean Up Reviews

Currently on my second bottle and happy with how this product has kept acne & breakouts in check. It doesn't leave the skin too dry and also doubles as a face mask.

Juhi Bhatt

Amrutam face clean up works great on any skin type, it has helped me keep my skin inflammation in check, helps with acne and clear the open pores. Continuous usage has helped lighten the pigmentation and scars as well. I have recommended the face clean up to many people and they have all loved it!!

Sakshi Dobhal

This really changed the game of how to maintain skin soft supple and glowing! I’m using it since few weeks and see hell lot of difference in the skin I had before and now. I don’t need any makeup or foundation to cover my skin imperfections since now they are slowly fading away after I started using this! I would say this product doesn’t need any kind of review because it’s above par than expected. It’s a blind buy honestly . I’m looking forward to buy more products and repeat this regularly henceforth.
