Kottakkal Nilibhringadi Keratailam Review - Neelibringadi Hair Oil

Neelibringadhi hair oil has been one of the secrets of healthy hair for many people. There are lot of brands selling Neelibhringadi hair oil in the market. But I would say Kottakkal Nilibhringadi KeraTailam has been my favorite for a long time.


When I heard about Neelibringadi hair oil for the first time, it was so new to me. My team mate told that the secret of the beautiful hair of her 65 years old mother is Neelibringadi hair oil. One of my neighbors in my native place also told that she has been using it for so many years. She is from Kerala with only 1 or 2 white hairs but she is around 50 now. So, I got good impression about Neelibringadi hair oil. Even one of my hubby's friend who is an Ayurvedic doctor also suggested this oil.

If you go to Kottakal Arya Vaidya Sala for any hair problem related to hair fall, there is a high probability that they will suggest to use this hair oil. When I enquired them about maintaining the natural black hair, the doctor in the vaidya salai told me to mix Neelibringadi hair oil with Prapaundarikadi thailam.


The oil comes in a plastic bottle. It is not easy to use from the bottle daily. So, I used to transfer the into another oil friendly bottle little by little for easy application on daily basis.


Price and Shelf Life:

Price - In Kerala 160 INR and Out of Kerala 164 INR.
Shelf Life - 3 years.




Keralatailam, Nili, Bhringaraja, Satakratualata, Dhatriphala, Yashti, Gunja, Ajakshira, Mahisikshira, Dhenukshira, Nalikerakshira and Anjana are the ingredients in the Kottakkal Niligbhringadi kerathailam.

You can see the ingredients of Kottakkal Nilibringadi Keratailam in the below picture.


Consistency, Fragrance and Application:

The oil is thick and it is slightly greasy. So, it attracts dirt. The smell is so strong and you cannot go outside having the hair oiled well with this oil. My kid and hubby do not like the smell :) My kid tells me, "Amma, your hair smells bad" when I apply this oil before going to sleep. So, I apply early in the evening so that the oil settles down in the hair and do not disturb others with the herbal smell while sleeping. Or else, I apply in the morning and leave it for an hour before taking bath.


Benefits of Neelibringadhi Hair oil:

Neelibringadhi Hair oil is very good for hair. It treats hair fall, split ends, promotes hair growth, prevents premature greying, treats itching and dandruff problems.

Overall Thoughts:

Neelibhringadi hair oil is really helpful to maintain the overall health of your hair. I buy it from Kottakkal Arya Vaidya Sala as it is a trusted one. The only drawback I found in this oil is its strong smell. Washing hair with mild shampoo can help to get rid of the smell.
