The causes of hair fall and reduced hair growth can be due to various reasons including weak scalp issues, hormonal problems, stress, scalp infections, damaged hair follicles, dandruff, improper hair care, and excessive use of hair styling products, environmental factors, and much more.
But what if I told you that bhringraj (which looks like a small-sized daisy), which is just a small plant, has multiple benefits to your hair and can reduce hair fall and significantly increase hair growth, would you try it out?
Well, maybe you should!
Check out the ways using bhringraj can benefit your hair:
1. Can help promote hair growth:
Using Bhringraj oil is known to prolong the anagen phase (active growth phase) of hair growth. It also strengthens the hair follicles and nourishes them. When Bhringraj oil is massaged into the scalp, it helps promote better blood circulation. This is very essential as it can help promote better hair growth by activating the dormant hair follicles and facilitating hair growth.
2. Can help reduce hair fall:
There are times when the hair strands weaken and begin to break and fall off. When we massage this oil into the scalp, it penetrates into the hair follicles and nourishes the hair strands, hence promoting better hair strength and reducing hair fall. It will also help prevent hair breakage caused by damaged hair.
3. Helps keep the scalp and hair healthy and nourished:
Dandruff and scalp infections are common causes of hair loss and therefore, the antibacterial properties of bhringraj can help prevent these scalp conditions.
Using bhringraj also helps reduce dry hair and moisturizes and nourishes the hair by penetrating into the hair shaft. This property of Bhringraj oil can help reduce hair dryness, frizz and split ends and prevent hair breakage and makes the hair feel naturally conditioned and gives it a naturally glossy and shiny look.

4. Can help prevent premature greying of hair:
Bhringraj oil has natural hair dying properties with its active ingredients haritaki and jatamansi that help maintain the natural colour of the hair. It helps reduce and prevent premature greying of hair, while it also helps reverse this condition as it dyes the hair when used.
5. Can help reduce dandruff:
It is important to note that hair fall can occur due to dandruff because the flaking can lead to blocked hair follicles, while the itching sound damage the hair follicles on the scalp. Therefore, using bhringraj oil can easily penetrate into the hair and help reduce hair dryness and keep the hair nourished. This helps reduce scalp dryness as well, in turn reducing dry scalp and dandruff and flaking.
Here’s how you can use bhringraj oil for your hair:
Partition your hair and evenly apply this oil all over your scalp and hair. Then gently massage it in using your fingertips using circular motions (as it will help promote the circulation of blood in the scalp). Then, let this sit for around half an hour to one hour before washing it off with a mild shampoo and conditioner
