Greying of Hair: Bhrami Bhringraj Oil 's Role as per Ayurveda

Understanding the science behind greying of hair

  • A pigment called melanin which is present in the hair renders the natural black colour to our hair.

  • The Production of melanin takes place during the hair growth (anagen) phase in the roots of the hair beneath the scalp.

  • The produced melanin is then transported upwards in the hair, thus imparting colour to the hair shaft.

  • The colour intensity of hair is directly proportional to the melanin content in it.

  • As we age, a natural loss of the melanin pigment causes the reduction in the intensity of the hair color which eventually leads to loss of hair colour i.e greying of hair.

Bhringraj Oil (also known as Mahabhringraj hair oil) is an oil derived from the leaves of the Bhringraj plant that is cultivated in the humid tropical regions across the world. The oil has special significance in Ayurveda and medical science. Enriched with the goodness of nature, Bhringraj oil is rich in nutrients such as Iron, Vitamin E, magnesium, polypeptides, steroids calcium, vitamin D. The oil is also rich in proteins that make it even more beneficial for hair. Bhringraj works like a miracle to solve hair care problems like hair fall and premature graying. According to Ayurveda, it’s a ‘Rasayana’ that has special properties of age reversal and rejuvenation. The most common way of using Bhringraj on hair is in the form of Bhringraj oil.


Bhringraj oil is dense and has a higher specific gravity as compared to other oils. For this reason, it can penetrate deep into the scalp and treat dryness. Bhringraj oil can be warmed and applied to hair to treat dandruff. It also provides relief from the itchiness and greasiness caused by dandruff. Regular massage with Bhringraj oil improves blood circulation. When the nutrients present in the oil reach the root of the hair, they strengthen the hair follicles and prevent baldness. These nutrients present in the oil help in facilitating the growth of hair. Amla restores this melanin in the hair over a period of systematic use If you've never used Amla hair oil before, please note that since we do not add any fragrance (to keep it 100% pure without chemicals) the scent of 100% organic amla oil should be that of a raw, earthy, leafy aroma. Also, unlike the variants available in the market, pure Amla oil does not have a green tint, not naturally. This is one of our star performers.
