Himalayan Origins Haircare Bundle Review

I’ve been exploring solid shampoo and conditioners in India for the past two years to minimize plastic waste.

So when Himalayan Origins approached me about trying out their zero-waste hair care essentials, I leapt at the chance.

Himalayan Origins, for those who are unfamiliar with the brand, is an Indian zero-waste beauty brand founded by two sisters, Neha and Soumya Parmar.

They have developed a line of sustainable skincare and haircare products that highlight the fresh botanical ingredients found in Uttarakhand’s foothills.

For the past month, I’ve been using three haircare products from Himalayan Origins that are part of a customizable bundle-

  • Coconut Oil Shampoo Bar
  • Mango Butter and Argan Oil Conditioner Bar and 
  • Bhimal and Black Onion Seed Hair Oil.

My Experience Using Himalayan Origins Hair Care Bundle:

My scalp is typically oily, but owing to the cold weather, it has become drier, as has my hair. This product is intended for regular to dry hair and hence fits my requirements well.

I tested the performance of each product separately and then altogether to evaluate just how well they performed.

Himalayan Origins Bhimal and Black Onion Seed Hair Oil.

The hair oil was the first product I tried out from the bundle. The base oil is made with olive, almond, sesame and shea butter.

They are infused with a wide range of herbs like tulsi, amla, fenugreek and turmeric that are beneficial for the irritated, dandruff-prone scalp. 

It also has bhimal- a unique ingredient found only in Uttarakhand.

The oil has a slightly thick consistency and needs to be warmed up before use to liquefy the shea butter.

I didn’t have any dandruff while using this so can’t comment on its dandruff-control prowess. But the oil is nourishing and can help soothe dry, irritated scalp. 

Himalayan Origins The Coconut Oil Shampoo Bar

Next I tried their zero waste shampoo bar, which pleasantly surprised me.

When co-founder Soumya suggested using extra shampoo to remove the oil from the scalp, I was concerned that this would be one of those non-foaming, super-gentle shampoos.

But, to my surprise, the shampoo bar foamed up nicely and didn’t require any further effort to clean my oiled scalp.

It distributes quickly on wet hair and forms a velvety lather that is easy to massage into the scalp. I needed two washes as usual to clean my oiled scalp.

This Himalayan Origins shampoo bar also has a conditioning effect and won’t leave your scalp or hair dry.

In fact, during summers, I think I could probably skip the conditioner if my hair is oiled well.

The only thing to remember is to store it properly (vertically in a soapdish) because it melts easily.

Aside from that, it is a wonderful shampoo for normal to dry hair that cleanses scalp well.

Himalayan Origins Mango Butter and Argan Oil Conditioner Bar 

Last but not least, their conditioner bar was my favourite. Now, if I’ve properly oiled my hair and the shampoo has a conditioning effect, I don’t require conditioner as often.

But the Himalayan Origins conditioner bar turned out be an amazing one.

My hair felt silky soft and were easily manageable after using the conditioner. They felt more hydrated, with a nice gloss and smoothness all over. And my hair didn’t feel limp too.

So if you need a conditioner that doesn’t weigh down your hair, but helps improve shine and softness, do try this conditioner form Himalayan Origins.

Overall, their entire range worked well for my hair type. The products are gentle on the hair and will help keep them conditioned and frizz free as well.

Out of the three, I will definitely consider repurchasing the conditioner bar(If I manage to finish this one as solid conditioners seem to last forever) and the shampoo bar as well.

Pros:

  • Contain natural ingredients
  • Gentle on hair
  • Don’t irritate the scalp or hair
  • Have a good conditioning effect
  • No artificial colours or fragrances
  • Suitable for normal to dry hair
  • Sustainable packaging
  • Not tested on animals
  • Affordable price

Cons:

  • None 

Final Thoughts on Himalayan Origins Hair Care Bundle :

Theese products are gentle on hair and will suit normal dry hair types really well. So if your aim for 2022 is to make more sustainable haircare choices, do consider these zero-waste haircare staples from Himalayan Origins.
