Dabur Vatika Coconut Hair Oil Review!

So after my African Shea Butter fiasco, I decided to protect my hair by twisting it up for a few days.  After about 3 days, my hair started to feel dry so I took down my twists. I didn't want to co-wash my hair and I has just gotten Dabur Vatika Enriched Coconut Hair Oil 300ml in the mail and decided to try it out.  I ordered it for about $5 from Amazon. You can also get it from your local Indian store and probably get it cheaper.  I used it to try to refresh my hair.

"8 Magical Ingredients"
Triphala, Brahmi, Henna, Neem,
Lemon, Rosemary Oil, Kapurkachri,
Soya Extracts

Instructions: Apply regularly on scalp & hair. For best results, massage & leave it on overnight. 

This product, for me, was almost a bust. That is because, when I first applied the product, I felt no instant results.  The oil is pretty light and it smells like furniture polish which I am definitely not a fan of. Luckily, though, the smell goes away after about an hour. All I did, was smoosh the product sparingly all over my hair.   After I gave it some time for the oil to actually penetrate my hair, my hair felt soft and looked shiny. I do believe that we have a winner here.  I will definitely be using it again in the future to re-moisturize my hair. I may even use it as a pre-poo or hot oil treatment.

You can see the shine in my hair. This may be exactly what my hair needs! Dabur Vatika Enriched Coconut Hair Oil 300ml gets two thumbs up.


  1. Thanks for sharing! I actually prefer argan oil instead of coconut oil because it has more benefits and it's super light on my hair, not greasy. I use Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan Oil hair treatment instead and my hair is shinier, healthier and stronger :)

  2. You're welcome. Thanks for the input. Moroccan Oil is great for hair. I've tried it before. The Moroccan Oil brand is like $45 and the Pro Naturals brand is $37 on their website. I spent $5 or $6 dollars on the Dabur Vatika Coconut. Weighing price versus results, cocunut oil works better for me. Moroccan oil works great and may hair would look awesome when applied before flat ironing but it's just too expensive. I'm glad you've had awesome results.

  3. This is nice! I definitely need a lot of education, being a man-but this is definitely illuminating. Great job right here!

    1. We definitely need support from men. Thanks, Chikelue!

  4. I love Vatika oil!! I don't know a lot about argan oil, but I know coconut oil is clinically proven to penetrate the hair shaft and moisturize from inside out, as well as significantly reduce protein loss caused by washing and regular wear and tear. And, Vatika oil mixed with Aubrey GPB or Honeysuckle Rose conditioner??? OMGawh ... LOVE!! LOL!


    1. Thanks, Shelli! I definitely have to try the Vatika Oil with the Honeysuckle Rose conditioner. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.
