Default New Ayurvedic Discovery - Sesa Oil for growth

I have just come back from a very long treck to the the Indian neighbourhood on my side of town. Went to the grocery store to buy Hesh products, but they didnt have any so i decided to browse and came across Sesa Oil. Does anyone know of or has used this oil?

It clearly says on the box that:

"Sesa not a cosmetic or toiletry preparation but an Ayurvedic medicne for nourishing the hair root and sclap, improving blood circulation to hair follicles, stimulating growth of thicker and longer hair. Checks loss of hair "alopecia and arrests dandruff".

It sounds like serious stuff. Did some research on the net and found that its been around since 1966 and is one of the most popular Ayurvedic oils for hair loss and growth. There is quite a lot of info online and its available worldwide.

It has all of the Ayurvedic growth herbal extracts in it - best of all, no mineral of parffin oil!

It does not smell too rightous, but apparently it works!

Here are the ingredients:
Bringaraj
Brahmi
Chameli Pan (jasmine)
Chanothi
Dhaturo
Elaychi (cardamomum)
Gali Pan (indigo)
Indravama
Jatamansi
Karanj Beej
Neem Beej
Mahendi Pan (henna)
Mandur
Rasvanti
Trifala
Akkal Kara
Vaj
Yashti Madhu (mulethi)

In a oil base of:
Milk (dugdha)
wheat germ oil
lemon oil
nilibhurungandi oil
til oil (sesame)
sugandhit dravya
coconut oil
colour : Quinazainne Green SS

It all sounds Kosher to me expect for the green colour, will have to look that up to see what it is exactly.

They have this at the indian grocery store that I go to as well. I think it's funny that the chick on the box has floor length hair.

It's fairly cheap, only $6 for like 8oz. I don't think it could hurt and the ingredients look promising.

This looks interesting. I found a place that sells it so I may give it a try- for real. I keep saying that I cant keep trying so much stuff but I cant help it!
Heres the link
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=263602_263622
This is a really long link.lol. Is this the one you ladies have seen?

Its also available here for a bit more, not too much though. It sells the small bottles and the big ones.
http://herbnhenna.com/Sesa-Herbal-Hair-Oil-P312425.aspx

Also how would you use this? Pre poo? hot oil treatment? rinse? daily/nightly application with massage? whatever may apply, give details!
please?

Default It smells like Dax!

Ok, so i used this yesterday - added it to my DT and it smells like old time hair grease - Dax to be exact!

It has a mineral/petrolium oil smell. I know it does not list either of these in the ingerdients, but i'm wondering if the lemon oil and some of the other oils are made with mineral oil...????

Anyway, I really don't like the smell, so i'm going to use it once a week on my scalp to pre-poo. The smell kept me awake all night, i'm going to co wash later to get the smell out.

Default how they make the oil

just found this on the manufactureres website:

"...SESA Hair Oil is uniquely designed with hair nourishing 18 herbs & 5 essential oils processed in Milk. The process is known as "Kshir Pak Vidhi", most Ancient Ayurvedic Process that makes hair Black, Shiny & Healthy. Goodness of traditional herbs work wonders for colored, straightened and chemically treated hair.

Maybe its the fact that its processed in milk ( and then they add a fragrance on top of that) that makes it smell the way it does!

vit. E is not a preservative but an antioxidant. If they have milk in it--maybe it's dehydrated milk powder--I don't see a preservative. sounds interesting though
