When it comes to buying cosmetic things for your newborn such as bathing soap, shampoo, talc powder, massage oil or body lotion, etc., you have to choose very carefully. A wrong choice can be a (skin) problem for the baby. In the case of baby products, there are innumerable options available in the market that are made from harmful chemicals. Even the companies claim that they are not using any harmful chemical in their product, but we all know the reality. In this situation, we have to opt for a product that is either herbal or made from natural elements. Keeping this in mind, I recently purchased Patanjali Shishu Care Hair Oil and through this article, I will share my experience with this product.
Things that I liked in Patanjali Shishu Care Hair Oil
I must say, Patanjali is very serious about their branding.
Their packing is very simple but elegant.
Be it their bottle sizes, branding, color combinations; every time I use their product, I love the way the pack.
Here, on the front of the bottle, you will find the Patanjali logo on top.
Right below that you can see the Shishu Care logo and holograms.
On the front, at the bottom of the bottle, you will see the company’s claim about having an oil enriched with natural elements.
On the back side of the bottle, you get full information about the ingredients, usage benefits, how it should be used, precautions for use, its price and the validity of the product.
Most of the baby products are packed in nontransparent bottles. This makes it very difficult to have any idea about how much product is left and when is the right time to order a new one.
But, in the case of Patanjali Shishu Care Hair Oil, you will see a completely transparent packing.
After every use, you can easily see the quantity left and accordingly, you will be able to order a new one.
Overall, as a customer, you will get every piece of information from its packing that you need before buying a product.
I recently reviewed a baby product with a flip-open lid. Trust me, opening that lid for the first time was a challenge for me. For me, it was very hard to find out from where to open. I was about to break it.
Patanjali Shishu Care Hair Oil‘s bottle comes with a flip-open lid, which is slightly raised from the opening side.
Therefore, it is not difficult to identify the exact opening location.
If needed, you can completely take off the lid.
I am not sure, but once you are done with this bottle, you can use the empty bottle for any other purpose like for storing hair or body oil for adults, especially when traveling.
Rich With Natural Elements
As claimed, Patanjali Shishu Care Hair Oil is made with natural elements and completely free from all hazardous chemicals.
Olive oil, almond oil, sunflower oil, mustard oil, coconut oil, vitamin E, BHT (a preservative mainly used to prevent the oxidation of oil present in foods) and aromatic liquid are the main ingredients used in Patanjali Shishu Care Hair Oil.
These ingredients are used in adequate amounts and nothing has been used more than the appropriate amount.
These elements like vitamin E, almond oil, sunflower oil, mustard oil, coconut oil, and olive oil provide best natural nutrition and care.
Patanjali’s Shishu Care Hair Oil is very soft.
You never feel any kind of heaviness, stickiness, or lubrication after applying it.
Because of this quality, Patanjali Shishu Care Hair Oil easily absorbs in the skin.
Fragrance is Fine
The fragrance of Patanjali Shishu Care Hair Oil is very light. This is a very good thing because sharp and strong fragrances can cause discomforts to the kids.
The best thing is, once you apply this oil, you will be able to smell a mixture of five different fragrances of five different oils used in it.
Use Of Olive Oil
Olive oil has been used as a base in Patanjali Shishu Care Hair Oil. This worked like a decision making reason. Do you know olive oil helps a lot in strengthening and softening your baby’s hair?

Things that I did not like in Patanjali's Shishu Care Hair Oil
Nothing To Do With Hair Growth
I have been using it for a long time, and I did not see any hair growth in my baby’s hair. Hence, I can conclude, this oil is fine for hair massage, but you must not expect any kind of hair growth.
Precautions For Using
We all know that the scalp of a newborn’s baby is very fragile. Therefore, before doing massage, you need to be very careful about a few things. Should you make any mistake here, your baby can land in serious troubles.
While massaging your baby, especially the head area, be very careful about the pressure on his head. You are not supposed to do it hard and you must not do it with heavy hands. You need to very gentle because too much pressure can damage his head.
If you see something like a cradle cap on his head, never try to wipe it with your hands.
How often to wash newborns hair?
There are medically approved shampoos for that. To have more information on cradle cap, you can read our article, “Common Questions About Cradle Cap In Babies.”
While massaging, make sure your oily hands are far away from your baby’s eye.
In short, you need to avoid the area around his eyes.
If you want to comb your baby’s hair, then please use a soft brush only and do it with a great care. To have more information in this context, you can read our article, “Newborn Hair Care – When To Comb, When To Wash, How To Choose Hair Care Products.”
Overall, my experience with Patanjali’s Shishu Care Hair Oil is positive. Nor me, neither my baby had any issues with the product. There were no signs of allergy or any reaction. Moreover, if you are getting 5 different oils at the price of one, then you are already having an unbeatable deal. I strongly recommend buying Patanjali Shishu Care Hair Oil and will definitely buy it again in future.
