It was very recent that I came to know about Kalonji Oil. Previously I have only known about the health benefits of Kalonji, but now that I was aware of its benefits for hair, I gave a try to the Kalonji oil and that was from the brand Urban Botanics.

My opinion about the Urban Botanics Kalonji Oil
Before getting this particular oil, I did a bit of my own research to understand what are the benefits of Kalonji oil. What I discovered is that it is rich in antioxidants that help strengthen hair, treats hair loss, and also can prevent premature greying.
Now, this particular Kalonji oil is cold-pressed, hexane-free, and free of chemicals and additives. I wouldn’t say that it helped reduce my premature greying of hair, but yes when I apply this oil and take a head bath, I feel hair fall is less as compared to those days when I use any other regular oil.
Also, any oil which is cold-pressed preserves the actual benefits of the oil, and hence this one is good for regular usage too!
The oil comes in a transparent bottle with a flip open cap.
The oil is not sticky or very thick and smells strongly of Kalonji (when you apply it, it feels as if someone is cooking something with a lot of kalonji, lol).
Pros of the Urban Botanics Kalonji Oil
- It is cold-pressed oil
- Free from hexane, chemicals, and additive
- It’s not very sticky
- Helps with hair-fall to some extent
- Good for regular usage
Cons of the Urban Botanics Kalonji Oil
- I would prefer a packaging which is environment friendly
- Has a very strong smell
Won’t say I love this one or it has done some miracle to my hair, but overall, is a decent hair oil for regular usage.
