Banjaras Hibiscus Wet & Wash | Review

Banjaras Hibiscus

Hibiscus is a wonder plant that works amazingly in making hair super soft and manageable. It is one of the major ingredients in Shikakai paste. I used to grind Hibiscus leaves and flowers, and apply it on my hair. Every single time I used this paste I was left with super soft bouncy hair. The process is a bit tedious and the paste gooey and sticky. When I came across Banjaras Hibiscus Wet & Wash at a local store I was super excited to try it out and hoped I would see similar results.

The product claims to “Banjaras Hibiscus paste is used to prevent hair fall, thickening of hair, and baldness treatment. Hibiscus paste is most effective and has been found in clinical trials that it not only stimulates glands bit also increases the growth of hair. Regular use of hibiscus paste keeps hair soft and manageable along with hair growth. It has property of imparting dark colour to hair. It is also useful in recurrent dandruff and scalp irritation. Hibiscus paste increases blood circulation, promotes hair growth and softens and conditions hair.

Directions for use: Apply the paste in suitable consistency on the scalp. Allow the paste to remain on scalp for one hour. Rinse thoroughly with water.

My Experience with Banjaras Hibiscus Wet & Wash

Banjaras Hibiscus Wet & Wash is a maroonish brown thick paste that comes in a squeeze packaging. The paste has the mild refreshing fragrance of hibiscus. Even if you aren’t a fan of the fragrance fret not as it is mild and doesn’t linger. The paste is quite thick and I prefer mixing this with either water or curd before applying it on my hair. I apply the paste liberally on both my hair and scalp and leave it for about an hour. The paste needs to be washes thoroughly with water and can take a little long to be removed. The final result is quite impressive though nowhere close to the effect I get when using ground up hibiscus leaves. My hair feels soft and manageable.

The product claims to have effect on hair growth and itchy scalp, but it rather failed here. I didn’t see any noticeable hair growth or reduction in hair fall after using Banjaras Hibiscus Wet & Wash; neither did it help with the mild dandruff itchiness. The product is affordably priced but availability is an issue. Despite being on the lazy side I still prefer using fresh ground hibiscus leaves, as the effect is way better and is all natural.

    1. I’m not able to spot this online. I’m only seeing the powder version. If you come across this do let me know.

    1. Definitely. Neither have I come across any miracle hair product especially masks that reduce hair fall. BUt this does make hair soft and manageable and I like that.

  1. I have dandruff problem on my oily scalp every winter. Nothing worked better than egg, honey and lemon mixture. This reduced my hair fall, made hair smooth, silky and manageable. Try it. Sure hibiscus powder is better than any mask.

    1. It’s quite decent Megha. It does make hair soft and manageable. But if you have used crushed Hibiscus leaves you’ll know how super soft your hair will look at the end of it.

    1. You can add curd to make it easier to apply. I normally apply the gooey paste as it is. Be prepared as your bathroom will end up rather messy, but the results are amazing.

    1. I’m happy with the way my hair feels. But compared to using the crushed leaves this is nothing.

  2. Love the sound of this hair wash! I need to figure out how to get my hands on this brand. I’ve never heard about this brand before…

    1. You can spot this in most Health & Glows. They are also available online. But availability is a bit of issue sometimes.

  3. nicely reviewed! I am always on hunt for hair products that can keep my hair manageable… From where do you manage to get hibiscus leaves? That would be great help. TIA 🙂

  4. I’ve used Banjaras Amla, Brahmi, Methi powders as hair packs and they’ve done wonders to my hair. Was looking for a hibiscus pack and glad you reviewed it 🙂 Is it available in powdered form?

    1. If you have extremely frizzy hair you won’t find this as effective. But if you have moderate or climate related frizziness this hair mask will help to a certain level.

  5. I have tried the other variant Amla Wet n Wash. Same experience… Not as effective as homemade packs. But I find this useful when I don’t have time to make them. Btw, am not able to subscribe to your blog. I don’t get the confirmation mail after giving my email id…
