Different Hair Oils Benefits


This article is about the benefits of different hair oils. How you can use these oils to get rid of dandruff, hair fall, thinning of hair, Greying hair, etc. I like to use a mixture of hair oils.

For best results, use hot oil for massage at least twice a week. And follow-up with steaming. Steaming helps your scalp helps the oils to penetrate better. Overall, these oils improve the health of your hair and scalp which is damaged daily by chemicals in straightening, perming, hair dyes, gels, sprays, etc.
Some of you including me may have noticed, that when washing oiled hair, you see more of hair falling. However, that’s normal. Massaging oil into roots promotes the hair cycle of hair falling and growing. So, its not actually causing your hair to fall, but stimulating new hair growth

Onabet Medicated Anti-Dandruff Shampoo Review

Onabet Medicated Anti-Dandruff Shampoo Review


Today’s review is about Onabet Medicated Anti-Dandruff Shampoo, which I’ve been using since a month.
This was recommended by my dermatologist. After I complained that how nothing has helped in reducing my scalp itch.
I was using Richfeel Arnica Scalp Cleanser shampoo earlier.
I had severe Dandruff & itching Due to an allergic reaction to rebonding.(Curse the day when I went to that salon)
Richfeel Shampoo has helped my dandruff to a great extent, however the itchiness was still there, which is the most embarrassing thing.
Now let’s have a look at the product details first.

Sertaconazole Nitrate – 2%
Zinc Pyrinthione 1%
Shampoo Base

Dosage – Use twice a week for four weeks, followed by once weekly as maintenance therapy or use as directed by the Physician.

Storage – Store below 25 degrees Celsius. Do not freeze.

Price & Quantity – Rs. 225 for 100 ml.

Consistency and Texture – it’s a brilliant Blue liquid with medium consistency.

Fragrance – Mild & pleasant, it will not irritate your sensitive nose for sure.

Packaging – It’s a dark green silvery bottle with white screw cum flip top. Very sturdy & due to its size quite travel friendly.


Even though I have severe dandruff, there are no flakes that I see on my clothes (Hurray).
It’s just the stupid itch that continued to harass me.
Imagine scratching your scalp like a monkey during an important Company meeting.
Onabet Shampoo is the only thing that has controlled my scalp’s itchiness.
I saw amazing results, just after 2 washes.
Infact, if I rate my itchiness after using Onabet, it reduced from 9 to 2. (Yes that much Difference for real)
I haven’t scratched my scalp in sometimes, will take time getting used it.
What more could I ask for.
However it doesn’t lather & foam very well, as it doesn’t contain Sodium lauryl sulfhate.
After suffering from severe dandruff for 5 long years, I had given up the dream of being dandruff free which seemed impossible.
However, this product has significantly upped my hope.
And I can proudly say that Onabet Shampoo has been my knight in shining armor.
Also this shampoo is recommended by dermatologists for Seborrhoeic Dermatitis.

Why I like Onabet:
Most effective dandruff shampoo I’ve ever tried, best for stubborn & chronic dandruff.
Easily available at all chemists.
Very effective in treating ichiness caused by dandruff.
Travel friendly size
Contains Sertaconazole Nitrate which is one of the strongest & most effective agent for severe dandruff & itchiness
Does Not contain Sodium lauryl sulfhate

And why I hate Onabet:
Pricey – at least they should have given more quantity for the price paid. The bottle is so small. Since I wash my hair twice a week, it will get over in a month. Actually I’m used to the 500ml big shampoo bottles.
Since it’s meant for severe dandruff, it does dry out hair & make it frizzy. This can be dealt with by using a good conditioner which is a must. (I use dove)
Doesn’t latter much (Still effective cleans hair)
It comes in a small bottle which only lasts for a month espcially if you have long hair like me.

MY Rating – 6 out of 5

Will i repurchase – Definitely. Again & again & again every month.

Would I recommend – totally to all those people depressed with severe dandruff.
If you’ve tried everything & failed, pick this up & you may be pleasantly surprised.

If any of you guys have sever dandruff like me, or have severe dandruff itch, do let me know what helps you.
