Cantharidine Hair Oil Review my HG product for hair!

Hey Everyone!


Have you watched the movie Tangled? If not I highly suggest you to watch it today itself! One of the main reason I watched the movie was because I love cartoons and I love long hair! Always have and always will! Though I do envy girls with short hair because of the million hair styles you can play around with but in this life I guess I'll always have long hair! Do you want Rapunzel like long hair?



My hair has always been long since my childhood days only apart from one year when my dad insisted to get my hair cut because he felt due to the extreme heavy weight of hair on my head my studies were getting affected! I remember when I went to the parlor to cut my hair she refused flat saying its too precious to cut this long hair but finally my mom managed to get her convinced :P


So why am I rambling about my long hair? One of the most common and repeated questions I get asked all the time is on my hair! How do I manage them and what all products do I use. So I decided to review one product which has been with me for more than 28 years now and will be for next 20-30 years as well!

My mum started using Cantharidine hair oil when I was 2 years and from then onwards there is no looking back! Although I do have thick black hair in my genes itself but trust me this hair oil is miraculous and works very well to nourish the hair and make them healthy!



Over the years my hair has become thin and I do suffer from hair loss all the time but the only oil which has ever come to rescue is this! I don't say that other oils are not good! Of course they are I have used Almond oil for faster growth of hair, olive oil for conditioner the hair and coconut oil for strengthening the hair from time to time.

What makes Cantharidine hair oil different is that it actually works on hair loss and growing back the hair and making the healthy and strong! none of the hair oils apart from this has ever worked on hair loss for me! Now I don't promise that all your hair will grow back in a week or in a month NO! Nothing can grow back you hair that fast apart from surgical procedures. Don't be impatient, it takes time and effort to produce any results especially in case of hair fall.

In long run the hair oil makes hair stronger, longer and healthy! It also helps in preventing premature greying of hair and dandruff! It does stop hair fall as well and works on growing back the hair. I cannot stress the importance of this oil and I have forgotten the number of time I have recommended this oil to people for their hair troubles! Even my hubby has got hooked to this oil after using coconut oil all his life :)




Pros:-
-> Helps in reducing hair fall
-> Helps in re-growing the hair
-> Makes hair stronger from inside
-> Helps in premature greying
-> Helps in preventing dandruff and dry scalp
-> Helps to avoid thinning of hair
-> Non sticky oil
-> Helps in maintaining the hair and protects from pollution
-> Very cheap!
-> Light fragrance which I love!

Cons:-
-> I know its not easily available in all chemists shops but it is available online on drugneed.com

Price:- 46 INR for 100ml BEAT THAT!!

I cannot recommend this hair oil enough and I highly suggest you to give it a try and see for yourself! Once again do not expect miracles in one week or one month! Only continuous usage of this oil for over a period of time will give you long and healthy hair! With this don't forget to drink loads of water and green leafy vegetables. To get healthy and beautiful hair you have to get healthy from within by eating good omega rich foods!

I hope the review was helpful to you all, until next time take care and stay beautiful!

Love,

  11. Nice review Parita and being a bong I can vouch for this! I have been looking for ths oil so much in Pune. I suppose you live in Pune too, so do you buy this oil from any shop in Pune or online? If yes then which shop stocks this oil in Pune, pls do let me know. I'm asking this coz drugneed is an extremely slow site. :(

Hi Nivedita sorry for the delay in reply, I got Cantharidine Hair oil from medical store which is at the start of Dutta Mandir Road Wakad..sorry i don't remember the name of the medical store..i think its called Medico or something..also you can request your chemist to get the oil for you..they usually do that :) i hope you get it soon :)

  12. Hi,,I too had similar problem and tried almost every medicine.. allopathy, homeopathy,,ayurveda..
    Also tried Dr.Batra but no luck.. Then i heard of this doctor Dr.Radha K in Pune.. It is a small clinic and they gave me few homeopathy pills plus suggested some changes in lifestyle which were pretty simple to execute.. Also provided me a diet plan which too was simple considering i was a bachelor and normally eating out.. In around 3 months my hairfall stopped completely..Infact i felt my hair grew more thicker..You can try their number - 9892271146.. Good Luck..

    1. I wouldnt advise you to use it on face..this oil is particularly used for growth and maintenance of hair

      Delete
  14. hi parita, can i use this oil on a daily basis or is it recommended to oil my hair overnight and wash it then next day? and should i be applying it only on the roots or whole length of hair?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hi Mady you can use it as per your needs daily or alternate days or weekly, just use it as any other oil, I usually prefer it to keep overnight and then wash it the next day..i try to follow this routine 2 to 3 times a week, i dont prefer to keep my hair oiled for more than 2 days since it attracts dirt..also apply it on the scalp as well as hair ie upto the roots
    hope this helps :)

  18. Read your entire article..thanks for sharing..
    You mentioned you have been using this oil since childhood.

    You also mentioned that "Over the years my hair has become thin and I do suffer from hair loss all the time but the only oil which has ever come to rescue is this!".

    I'm bit confused here....even if you used this oil for 28 long years, you faced hair problems ?

    1. Ravi when in childhood my hair would always be oiled and i have never used harsh chemicals and shampoos and coloring..i remember my mom would use areetha to wash hair but now due to using various different shampoos/conditioners and I have even colored my twice few times..my hair has become thinner as compared to previous childhood days..also i dont keep my hair oiled everyday since its definitely not feasible for me to go out with oiled hair..so what i meant was with regular usage this oil really helps in maintaining your hair..regular usage would mean to apply atleast 3 times a week..also diet is a major concern for hair thinning and hair loss..I do take supplements given by my derma again these days our food habbits are not that healthy and we dont get proper nutrients..this oil will not help if our eating habbits are bad..the body needs nutrients as well..hope this helped

    1. Hi Shivani...I would highly recommend you to 1st visit a dermatologist and get your scalp checked...depending upon the nature of your hairfall the derma should prescribed vitamins and/or hairfall solution...I highly recommend to take hair supplements since they do help. Apart from that add in almonds/walnuts in your diet and use this hair oil atleast 2 t o 3 times a week..also check your shampoo and conditioner for harmful ingredients...go for shampoo which is mild...drink loads of water. Hairfall is not something for which you will see results immediately..it will take upto 3 months or more to see results. You can also incorporate Omega 3 or fish oil capsules in your diet.

    1. Hi Sagarika, for hairfall shampoo's don't help much...visit a derma and get your scalp checked..ask him to prescribe vitamins for hair..they do help..along with that you can use mild shampoo..currently I am using Tricleanz from Curatio and I do like it..for conditioner Triflow again from Curatio is the best I have come across..hope this helps :)

  29. My Uncle was a Doctor who practiced for almost 75 yrs. . He recommended only one Hair oil to all the patients who complained of hair fall or any hair problems i.e. CANTHARIDINE HAIR OIL from Bengal Chemicals. The procedure of usage he advised was:- stoop forward, let hair down, apply C hair oil, detangle hair with wide teethed comb, now brush hair with a hair massage brush or with a very fine teethed comb (jessore comb) firmly but not harshly for about hundred strokes in the opposite direction of hair growth. You will feel a tingling sensation. This is how the hair roots are stimulated.Leave for 30 mnts. and wash hair with mild herbal cleanser. You may leave the oil on hair if desired. Initially you'll lose all the weak hair, but strong hair will grow back. Do not use ANY chemical content product on hair. It will kill the hair forever. Take care of other medical, health and diet problems also.
