Review of Iraya Japakusum Taila Ayurvedic Hair Oil – For Thicker, Luscious Hair

Hi all,
Welcome back to a new product review. Are you facing lots of hairfall as winters have started now? Do you have thin hair and looking for something which can thicken and give volume to your hair? Are you looking for an affordable hair oil which is free from mineral oil and also preferably coldpressed? Then this review is for you! Am talking about Iraya Japakusum Taila Ayurvedic Hair Oil. I did a haul from Iraya so many months back. And this was one among that. Any hair care product that has hibiscus immediately grabs my attention, as we all know hibiscus helps to thicken and add volume to hair. Read my detailed experience with Iraya Japakusum Taila Ayurvedic Hair Oil.

Iraya Japakusum Taila Ayurvedic Hair Oil looks dark reddish-brown in color and has a strong ayurvedic smell, mostly of sesame oil. I don’t like the smell much. It has a thin consistency similar to the Kama Ayurveda hair oil, thicker than Forest Essentials one, thinner than Alanna hair oil.

I apply Iraya Japakusum Taila Ayurvedic Hair Oil and leave it overnight. Next morning, I wash it off with a mild herbal shampoo. It takes two washes to get rid of the oil completely. After washing, I can feel my hair is well nourished and healthy. I can also feel my hair is voluminous and bouncy. Similar to how it feels when we apply hibiscus hair pack. But it doesn’t help much with dryness and frizziness. Doesn’t make hair smooth or anything.

With continuous use for 2 months, I can feel my hair fall has reduced and also I can observe good hair growth. I mostly like this hair oil for the thickness and volume it gives to my fine,limp hair.

Iraya Japakusum Taila Ayurvedic Hair Oil contains so many good ayurvedic ingredients – sesame oil and sunflower oil as base along with cow’s milk, bhringraj, amla, hibiscus, methi, etc. All the oils are pure virgin coldpressed oils. This is also affordable compared to other ayurvedic hair oils like Forest Essentials, Kama Ayurveda, etc.




Does it satisfy all its claims?

Yes, it satisfies all its claims.

What I like?

* Contains virgin coldpressed oils.
* No mineral oil, no synthetic dyes, no paraffin, no petrolatum, 100% vegetarian.
* Cruelty-free.
* Nourishes and conditions hair.
* Makes hair voluminous and bouncy.
* Promotes luscious thick hair.
* Combats hairfall and helps in hair growth.
* Impressive ayurvedic ingredients list.
* Affordable.

What I don’t like?

* Strong oily smell.
* Doesn’t help with frizziness.

Would I recommend?

Yes, if you have thin, fine, limp hair.

Would I repurchase?


Value for money?

Yes, its good value for money.

IBeautySpy Rating: 4.3/5

Overall, I liked the effects of Iraya Japakusum Taila Ayurvedic Hair Oil – makes hair thicker, combats hairfall and helps in hair growth. But the strong smell is something I can’t bear. Which is why I might not repurchase it. But if I don’t find any other affordable hibiscus oils, I might come back to this.
