To begin with, this is not a sponsored post. This is about a product I have been using for quite some time now and being satisfied with it, wished to share it with you all.
I began using Greynil about two years ago, on the behest of my cousin. Before that, I used to apply henna to cover my greys. It gave my hair a fiery red shade and then orange, much to my dismay. I did not want orange hair and neither did I wish to use chemical hair colours.
So, I opted for Greynil and am really happy with the way my hair feels today!
Greynil is a chemical-free, herbal hair colour. It is manufactured by Dr. Jain’s Herbals brand and is prepared using the following ingredients:
Sofia Oil (Perfume)
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Greynil is available in two shades: Brown and Dark Brown.
Choose the shade that suits your natural hair colour.
Take the required quantity in a bowl and add boiling water to it to make a paste. Leave it aside for a few minutes. Wear the gloves that come with the pack and apply the paste to your hair when it is lukewarm.
Part your hair and apply from roots to the ends with a brush.
Once you have finished, cover the hair with a shower cap and then tie a towel, or a cotton dupatta on top, like a turban. This will keep the hair colour warm and prevent you from catching a cold or experiencing a headache.
Keep it for two hours and then wash off with cold water.
DO NOT SHAMPOO the same day.
Once the hair dries, you will find it rough to touch and tough to comb and de-tangle. Do not worry. Just comb as gently as you can and tie your hair in a bun.
Oil your hair the next morning. Your hair will soften as soon as you apply oil.
After 2 – 3 hours, wash your hair using your usual shampoo and conditioner, or even shikakai, if you use it (you will find the lather turning blue–that’s because of the Indigo.).
Let your hair dry naturally, or towel-dry it, gently.
De-tangle the hair once dry.
Initially, you will need to apply Greynil every 8 to 10 days. Later, you may use it every fortnight.
BENEFITS OF USING GREYNIL:
1. Greynil, being a pure herbal hair colour, is free of any chemicals, and, is therefore, not harmful for your hair and skin.
2. It makes the hair softer, silkier, improves hair-growth and the health of your crowning glory!
3. You will also notice a decrease in dandruff with regular use of Greynil.
4. Greynil doesn’t make your hair orange when it fades after some days, but leaves it with a brown tinge and then, back to your natural hair colour.
Greynil is available at your nearest chemist-druggist. You can also buy it online.
Hair colours–whichever brand they may belong to–contain chemicals that are harmful for our hair and skin and result in the hair turning grey sooner. Using chemical-based hair colours also results in excess hair fall, dry hair and dandruff.
This particular product suited my hair and skin and gave good results. Skin and hair types vary from person to person, so if you experience any discomfort while using it, you can always switch to henna.
TIP FOR USING HENNA:
Add beetroot juice to henna if you have brownish hair and wish for a maroon tinge. Beetroot also helps reduce hair fall.
