The famous herb Bhringraj is also known as Epistle prostrate or Epistle alba, is well-known for its benefits and usage in hair growth. Bhringraj oil is used as various natural remedies in Ayurveda (the traditional Indian system of medicine) for balancing the doshas (body humours). Maha Bhringraj herbal hair oil is commonly used to reduce premature greying and hair loss, promote hair growth, shine, and improve smoothness and strength. Ayurvedic practitioners also recommend consuming Bhringraj oil orally to treat heart, respiratory disease, neurological and liver disorders.

Bhringraj, which is referred to as the 'False Daisy,' is a traditional wonder herb that has been used for hundreds of years to create long, silky and strong hair. It is a creeping herb that can grow up to 3 meters high, has a long stem and white flowers that are solitary, winged, and is 6 to 8 mm in diameter. The bhringraj plant has stalkless lance-shaped leaves arranged in opposite directions and distinctly grey colour roots that are cylindrical.

The nutritional benefits of Bhringraj oil are extensive; it is rich in iron, vitamin E, magnesium, polypeptides, steroids, calcium, and vitamin D. The plant grows mainly in the humid countries of India, China, Nepal, Thailand, and Brazil.

Uses and Benefits of Maha Bhringraj Herbal Hair Oil

Research shows that Bhringraj oil can aid hair growth, soothe dandruff, improve scalp health, and many other benefits. Now let's examine the following benefits of Bhringraj oil for your hair:

1. Provides relief from Dandruff and Dry scalp
Due to Bhringraj oil's density and higher specific gravity, it can penetrate deep into the scalp and effectively treat dryness. It can be heated and applied to the hair to treat dandruff. This herbal hair oil also relieves the itchiness and greasiness caused by dandruff.

2. Treats baldness and promotes hair growth
Regular massages with Bhringraj oil improve blood circulation. When the nutrients in the oil reach the roots of the hair, they strengthen the hair follicles and prevent hair loss or baldness. These nutrients present in the oil contribute to the growth of the hair.

3. Prevents hair loss
Natural therapy for hair loss is Bhringraj oil that features a soothing fragrance too. When you massage your scalp and hair with Bhringraj oil, it relaxes the mind and prevents stress-induced hair loss.

4. Enhances hair growth
If you massage your hair with Bhringraj oil, you will have better blood flow. It is known that the oil causes vasodilation, which allows blood vessels to dilate, improving blood flow to the hair roots, and thus promoting hair growth.

5. Prevents hair from greying 
Black dye is extracted from Bhringraj leaves, which is used to dye the hair. A combination of Bhringraj oil, henna and amla prevents greying hair.

6. Adds shine to hair
Bhringraj oil is a rich source of nutrients that deeply nourish the hair and give it a natural shine. It has been proven that the secret to Indians' luscious, shiny hair lies in a traditional Ayurvedic recipe containing powerful herbs as Bhringraj and Amla extracted in pure sesame oil.

7. Repairs hair damage
If your hair is dry, brittle, and loses volume quickly, it means you are suffering from hair damage. Many factors can cause hair damage, including using heat styling products excessively, being exposed to the sun, or using the wrong products. The use of herbal hair oil such as Bhringraj hair oil enriched with Bhringraj herb has been clinically proven to increase natural hair volume by five times and tear strength by six times.

8. Cure scalp infections
Maha bhringraj herbal oil has antibacterial properties, which makes it an ideal choice for treating scalp infections. It has been claimed that this herbal hair oil is effective against various types of follicle infection, psoriasis, bacterial infection, and tinea infection. Regular use of Bhringraj oil will reduce inflammation of hair follicles and scalp tenderness, and hair growth will be enhanced.
