Divine Herbal Hair Oil packs the world’s best-kept botanical hair growth secrets in a bottle

Hairloss has been one of my on-and-off problems since my high school years. I’ve tried so many products and a few treatments to curb it — from hair oils, tonics and serums to supplements, teas and expensive treatments at hair care centers. And until now, I’m still searching. But it’s a different story with Divine Herbal Hair Oil… I didn’t find it, it found me.

Syed, the man behind Divine Herbal Hair products, stumbled upon one of my Beijing 101 reviews. After reading about my story of battling hair loss and dandruff, he offered to send me a free full-sized sample of their best-selling hair oil.

Hair Secrets from Around the World
When Syed started to experience hair loss in his mid-twenties, he began asking himself why the native people from certain countries had luscious and thick hair which never seemed to fall. To get his answers, he did more than googling. He traveled to some of these countries and learned about their botanical secrets. Then an idea came to mind…

Why not combine all these ingredients into one potent hair care product?

After many, many rounds of trial and error, he came up with a special cocktail of 21 essential and carrier nourishing oils and 10 botanical extracts that promote hair growth and strength.

Avocado Oil (Persea Gratissima), Castor Seed Oil (Ricinus Communis), Hemp Seed Oil (Cannabis Sativa), Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia Chinensis), Sweet Almond Oil (Prunus Dulcis), Blackseed Oil (Nigella Sativa), Apricot Kernal Oil (Prunus Armeniaca), Lemon Oil (Citrus Limonum), Lavender Oil (Lavandula Angustifolia), Grapefruit Oil (Citrus Paradisi), Sage Oil (Salvia Officinalis), Thyme Oil (Thymus Vulgaris), Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga Odorata Genuina), Cypress Oil (Cupressus Sempervirens), Vitamin E Oil (Tocopheryl Acetate), Cedarwood Oil (Cedrus Atlantica), Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca Alternifolia), Peppermint Oil (Mentha Piperita), Rosemary Camphor Oil (Rosmarinus Officinalis), Glycerine (Glycerol) Cucumber Extract (Cucumis Sativus), Calendula Extract (Calendula Officinalis), Rosehip Seed Extract (Rosa Rubginosa), Burdock Root Extract (Arctium Lappa), Chamomile Extract (Matricaria Chamomilla), Dandelion Root Extract ((Taraxacum Officinale), Cinnamon Bark Extract (Cinnamomum Verum), Horsetail Extract (Equisetum Arvense), Nettle Extract (Urtica Dioica), Olive Leaf Extract (Olea Europaea), Sweet Basil Oil (Ocimum Basilicum), Bay Leaf Oil (Laurus Nobilis)

Texture and Smell
The oil is thick and a bit tacky but the good thing is that compared to other heavy oils like coconut and olive, it’s surprisingly easier to rinse. Of course, it still leaves my hair a bit limp but it’s manageable. And although it can make my hair a tad oily, it doesn’t make my scalp any oilier. In fact, I feel that it helps balance the oiliness of my scalp.  The smell is very herbal but it doesn’t bother me at all. It has an energizing and rejuvenating aroma to me.

How to Apply
After telling Syed about the humid Singapore weather, he recommended applying the oil on my scalp twice a week only. If you live in a country with a dry or cold climate, you can apply it more often. Massage the oil into the scalp for 3-5 mins, leave it for at least two hours then rinse off. I usually apply this overnight and wash my hair the next morning. The oil can also be applied as a weekly hair treatment to strengthen the hair strands and prevent breakage.

Tip: Although I found the amber glass bottle packaging cute, it’s not really convenient for use so I bought this applicator from Daiso.

I noticed some hair growth

Syed said that like most other people who tried this hair oil, I should be able to see some results within 28 days. I actually never knew this oil was really working until around 2 months ago when I took a closer look at my hairline in the mirror. Aside from a significant decrease in hair loss, I never noticed any increase in volume before that and I just continued applying the oil to help nourish my hair and scalp in general. But I discovered tiny hair growing, a lot more than usual. Unfortunately, because I stopped using the oil due to laziness (as always!), I’m starting to lose lots of hair again.

For Hair Growth Support
In general, I feel that my hair and scalp are both healthier whenever I apply and massage this oil at least 1-2 times per week. I don’t think it dramatically made my hair thicker — or at least not yet — because I believe my problem is beyond the surface. But this oil is definitely good stuff. I would personally continue using it and I think this is a handy hair oil to to have for anyone who wants overall scalp wellness or wants to supplement their other efforts to prevent hair loss.

Price and Availability
Divine Herbal Hair Oil is available in two versions — Original and Sensitive Version. Both retails at £29.90 per 6.7 oz bottle on the Divine Herbal online store. I used the original version as it’s more potent. It’s a bit pricey if you consider the int’l shipping fee and currency exchange rate but one bottle can more than last a year. There is a 30-day 100% money back guarantee for the Divine Herbal Hair Oil which puts my Euro-terrified mind at ease.

Are you currently using any hair or scalp oil, too?

    Hair loss is funny…the last few years, I notice I lose more hair right when it starts to get colder in the fall, but it seems to grow back over the course of the rest of the year. Apparently this isn’t uncommon, but it’s still weird, no? I feel like it’s probably something internal too, but I’ve yet to figure it out. Anyways! This sounds like a great product…it’s awesome you’ve seen some new hair growth with it :)

      We never get any severe temperature drops in Singapore because we have ‘summer’ all year round — and I guess that’s the main of cause of hairloss for most people. The climate here is very humid so lots of people suffer from oily and congested scalp. The interesting thing is, whenever I’m in another country during winter, I don’t lose as much hair. :)

    hi vivi yes am using hair oil..i started using it last year when i was suffering from severe hair fall it was so terrible but this oil has really helped me in controlling hair fall plus it made my frizzy hair softer than before…it always happened with me during winters but to my surprise this year i dint suffer any hair loss so this ayurvedic luxurious indian brand and my mom made hair pack truly helped me..but am always game to try new products and your reviews tempts me so i will check out this one too ..:)

      Hi Nami, thanks for sharing your experience with hair oils. I would have to say that when it comes to hair care, Ayuverdic oils are one of the best I’ve tried. And I see lots of Indian women with long thick hair… makes me jealous sometimes. :p

      I think that if your current oil is working well for your hair, stick to it. I am also always tempted to buy lots of products and try everything out there. But in the end, I usually go back to old products I’ve tried and tested. :)

      Hi Mai, hope this works for you. It’s really a good scalp oil IMO. I feel it’s better for the scalp than for the hair. If you’re still using Skin Apotheke’s hair oil — I find that better for the hair as a pre-wash treatment but I never experienced any scalp relief or improvement. But this new oil, there’s definitely something different because I don’t lose as much hair. Let me know how it works :)

      What I do now is I use SA for my hair roots and this new oil for my scalp.

    This oil sounds great. I also get really lazy when I’m trying to stick to some sort of long-term routine, so my advice is maybe to make it a priority to apply the oil once a month…which is less hassle than 2x weekly but you’re still adding some of the oil into your routine which should help with the hair loss. good luck!

      You’re still young! :) You have a lot of time to be lazy with your beauty routines. :D

      I have very sparse hair so I need to apply the oil once a week — which is pretty manageable compared to 2x a week.

    Hair loss can be so frustrating, although, thank god I am not suffering from it now, a few years ago due to sudden weight loss, I also lost hair, it sucked. This product looks amazing, ingredient wise it looks phenomenal, thank you so much for the post.

      I’m on a perpetual weight loss battle (I don’t know whether it’s just my imagination but I’m so tired being thin) so I guess it might be one reason why I tend to lose hair easily. Yup, the ingredients are quite good. :)

    Scalp massage helps to stimulate your hair follicles and evenly distributes the natural oils of your scalp along your hair shaft. It can also help to loosen any debris and keep the hair follicles free of excess sebum. According to herbalist and Ayuverdic practitioner Todd Caldecott in his book “Ayurveda: The Divine Science of Life,” scalp massage with certain herbs can keep your hair follicles clean and remove any excess oil and grime. Herbal infusions prepared with nettle, rosemary or horsetail leaf can be used to keep the secretion of hair oils at a normal level. The infusion is gently dabbed on and massaged into the scalp using circular motions with the fingertips.

      I definitely think the massage helped me a lot — because if I didn’t apply any oils on my scalp, I wouldn’t usually have bothered to massage it. ;)

      Oh yeah! I forgot to put the Euro symbol. Thank you for reminding me!
      Yes, unfortunately, it’s in Euros which works to around SGD$50 sans the shipping fee. But the bottle can last a long time. Mine hasn’t reached the half mark yet.
