I’ve had the blessed opportunity over the years to sample some incredible products from amazing brands. While I have sampled my fair share of duds that don’t even make it to the achieves of MLD, my heart still races when I come across that certain gem. This reassures me that the ‘beauty enthusiast’ inside me is still very much alive and well. Kumari Luxury’s line of body and skin care has wowed me since day one. The certain gem that I am referring to today, is their Hair Oil Treatment. With an exemplary formula comprised of Ayurvedic oils, this is the ‘mother’ of hair oils.
Kumari Luxury Hair Oil Treatment was inspired by founder, Aarti Gala’s Indian heritage and a sweet beauty ritual passed down from her mother.
“When I was young, my mother always showed me the importance of taking time to enjoy the moment. Every week, she would break away from her busy schedule for a little ritual that I still remember to this day. At the end of a long day, she would put everything aside, take out her amazing Ayurvedic hair oils from India, and massage oil into my hair before sending me off to sleep. Those cherished moments, the happy silence, the fragrance of the hair oil, and the feeling of absolute comfort and relaxation are what led me to create Kumari Luxury.” – Aarti Gala

Kumari’s Luxury Oil Treatment is a pre-shampoo treatment, and suggested to be worn overnight for best results. Simply use the dropper to apply the treatment directly to the scalp, then continue to coat the hair from roots to tips. Generally we are told to apply hair treatment oils to the ends of hair, avoiding the scalp. As someone who has a generous accumulation of oils on their scalp already, I was a bit apprehensive about this step. I know by logic that oil repels oil, but even so, I feared the state of my hair post shampoo. As the good beauty guinea pig that I am, I ensued with great measure.
What makes Kumari’s Hair Oil Treatment different? A surprising ascertainment that I gained when using the oil, is that while your hair is surely coated, it doesn’t feel greasy, to my surprise. I felt no reservation when laying my head to my pillow at night. There was no surplus of oils leaving behind an oil slick, nor did I feel at any time uncomfortably greasy. Not to mention the magnolia and sandalwood fragrance, while not overbearing, is utterly exquisite. The oil treatment easily washes away with one shampoo, leaving no residue behind. You can go about your day as planned, with only the added addition of lustrous, healthy, and more manageable locks. Not to mention, the treatment has helped to neutralize the oils in my scalp, leaving it more balanced. My hair blows out more quickly after use, and the damage I have endured from heat styling is reversed. I use this treatment weekly to keep my hair in its best shape. This oil is perfect for anyone seeking healthy shiny hair, no matter your hair type.
