Patanjali Kesh Kanti Hair Oil Review

They raise your glam quotient by leaps and bounds. They are also capable of marring your entire appearance if not maintained properly. You long for them. You covet them. You maintain them and fondly term them the “crowning glory”. Ok, time to let the cat out of the bag. I am talking about none other ‘Hair’ 🙂 There would be a number of shampoos, conditioners, serums, hair growth capsules claiming to fasten your hair growth and leave you with locks that’d leave Rapunzel red-faced, and what not for hair care but amongst all these, our Good Ol’ hair oiling sessions can never be ignored. Almost all of us would have memories of our hair being drenched in oil like Jalebis being cooked in oil back in childhood. Ok, that Jalebi example was enough to leave one desiring for a plate of the same, but come back to the topic. Today I will be sharing Patanjali Kesh Kanti Hair Oil Review.

Patanajali besides being a renowned Ayurvedic brand is also quite pocket-friendly. Having heard rave reviews of their products, I stepped into my neighboring Patanjali outlet and grabbed this Patanjali Kesh Kanti Hair Oil since I have been consistent in hair oiling and during winters a hot oiling session at home is next to an opportunity to unwind with your hair being pampered 🙂 Read below my Patanjali Kesh Kanti Hair Oil Review and find out how it worked for me.

My experience with Patanjali Kesh Kanti Hair Oil

Packed in a plastic bottle with a flip-top cap, Patanjali Kesh Kanti Hair Oil is hygienic to carry as its cap doesn’t loosen overtime as well as sturdy. I find it travel-friendly hence, would consider it up to the mark in terms of packaging. Of course, you can see in the pictures that it is not fancy or eye-pleasing in terms of outward design but like always, I couldn’t care less about its outward appearance. It simply doesn’t matter to me what a product is externally. If it works well, it is useful and worthy of being re-purchased. Period.

Patanjali Kesh Kanti Hair Oil has a slightly thick texture and if applied in excess will give a very unhealthy chipku look so be careful with the quantity. The smell is irritating after a point especially if you keep it overtime but if used regularly, who knows may be you’ll get used to it? Anyway, as instructed I kept it overnight (and used it devotedly for two months) and there was not any noticeable change. Two months is a good enough time period in my opinion to gauge the effectiveness of a hair oil.

I don’t have split ends so can’t comment on how effective it is (as claimed) in getting rid of them. I feel it is a far-fetched and unrealistic claim. How can any product make those ends go back to the original hair strand? It’s just naive to believe it. You have to trim your hair to get rid of them.

Now during winters, my hair which is already dry, seizes the opportunity to look all the more like a porcupine so. It didn’t do anything in taming them also. This was a major put-off for me as I had devoted two whole months to elicit results. I don’t have severe or noticeable hair fall issues so I can’t comment on how it works, if it does, on that issue.

The only good part is that Patanjali Kesh Kanti Hair Oil?helped me in sleeping peacefully but that’s the case with every ABC oil in the market. Your scalp dries and makes it uncomfortable for you to sleep peacefully. Once massaged with hair oil (which hydrates it), it won’t cause any discomfort so it is not any special quality of this oil. Every other hair oil does that.

Overall, Patanjali Kesh Kanti Hair Oil didn’t show any great result in my case to be re-purchased.

About Nidhal Sinha

She is a true-blue Delhi-ite by nature. In spite of having lived in this city which is called "The melting pot" of different cultures, religions, cuisines, and colors, She believe there's always something to be discovered in this city which happens to be a heady cocktail of new and vintage. While she is no fanatic when it comes to skin and hair care, holistic living is more her mantra. Minimalism, she believe has an inexplicable charm and magnetism. By the virtue of having an 'over-the-top' imagination, She love contemplating possibly the most impossible scenarios in her mind. Perhaps, when they say "An idle brain is devil's workshop", they were pinpointing me! When it comes to preening one's appearance, She rely and advocate herbal remedies over quick-fix solutions because that's what She think keeps one BEAUTIFUL HAMESHA :)


  1. I don’t like such oils which are that difficult to wash off…

  2. @Pallavi- I feel our humble old coconut oil is the best. One can add/subtract herbs too. For instance- if someone has dandruff, steep neem leaves and so on.
    And the worst part about this oil is that it has such a strong smell! You can soak a hanky in it and kidnap someone by putting it on their nose 😛

  3. I hate these types of strong smell oils 🙂 Honest review 🙂

  4. I have been using this kesh kanti oil. Like it, just that its so thick that is a big turn off for me
