Japakusum Ayurvedic Scalp Lotion Review

Seriously, I have rarely seen any girl without hair fall issues. I have been battling with it forever and no matter how many different ways I try to arrest it, it just wont stop. Certain remedies does help to minimize the issue but never fully counteracts it. I have moderate hair fall all year around, but there are certain uncertain phases when my hair fall issue is the most uncontrollable one. Couple of months ago when fall was setting in I was in that phase. And just then when I read about this scalp tonic, which sounded nothing less than a miracle product in Shayoni's blog, I wasted no time to get my hands on these. So guys, I have given this scalp tonic a solid try and sharing all my experiences with you all in this post.


These are made my Biogreen healthcare, a company who specializes in organic products and natural skin and hair care. They also have ayurvedic medicine. They even call this scalp tonic as a ayurvedic medicine. I do not feel that they have a well established e-commerce system. I had placed my order and I did not receive any email confirmation. I did not received any notification when my order was dispatched as well. After a week when I called them, they confirmed then that my courier was on my way and would reach soon. The payment are done through Payumoney and only once you receive your shipment, the amount is released to the vendor. Shipping is free for purchase above Rs 1000, less than that and they charge Rs 500 for shipping. Crazy right !

I am just putting it out there, while I was using this and am still using this, I am not using any other hair oil, hair product or treatment of any sort. Neither am I taking any hair supplements. I wash my hair with TBS Rainforest Balance Shampoo (sulfate free), my all time favorite and used the TBS Grapeseed Serum just to detangle my hair. I do not use any conditioner. Now lets get on how this actually performs.

I really like the gel texture of this. For men or women who has issues with applying hair oil, this is perfect for them. I apply only at roots by sectioning my hair and then with light circular motion message the scalp. Post application the root section gets wet, so this is best applied at least couple of hours before going to bed. The lotion feels very cooling on scalp which is something which I really enjoy and its very calming too. I do have dandruff problem, those irritating sticky oily ones. I have noticed when the gel starts to dry off, my scalp starts to itch a bit. After it settle into scalp and dried, the itchiness is dies down and the hair section feels a bit hard to touch exactly like how hair setting sprays makes hair feel. But once you comb through that it smooths away too. There is no oily and stickiness in hair, so one can easily get away by not shampooing their hair for more than couple of days.

Now comes the most important question, does it really work ? I have used this 15 days straight to see results just as the package suggest and honestly I did not see any miraculous effect on hair fall. So I used this daily for 30 days straight and finished one bottle. Only after this I could see a slight difference in hair fall. But then nothing major. I still lose the same amount of hair when I shampoo, but a little less when I comb. I had given one bottle to my colleague who also suffers from same hair loss issues like me, and she also gave me the same feedback. For her she has those dry flaky dandruff, and she noticed that her dandruff were little less, but she no noticeable difference in hair loss issue. Another downside of this product is, this does not hydrate the length of your hair. So for some one like me who does not use conditioner that's an issue. I am noticing that my hair is getting drier and craving for hydration since I did not oil for a month. Honestly I had better results with hair fall and improving hair quality with my mix of oil for healthy hair. Read the DIY here. I had suggested this to many of my friends and all were happy with the results. Since my scalp is not behaving well with oil, so I am not using that oil mix.

The lotion is definitely a good product, but nothing miraculous. If you have major hair fall issues, you would not see any quick results with this. You have to continue using it for months to see any major noticeable difference. I am going to continue using the lotion and also apply my oil mix along the length of the hair the day before I shampoo so that my hair does not lose all its hydration.

Did any of one of you used this product yet, let me know if you have same results as me.

  3. i got this from Amazon. Used it just once, left it overnight. My scalp felt itchy soon after (which is not normal for me) plus I had a sudden bad cold the next day because of the 'cool' lotion; so i haven't touched it after that. I guess people with a tendency to catch cold should probably avoid it. Since u didn't notice visible difference, I think it is not worth the trouble. But u got 4 bottles?!! :)
