My Review: 10 Days Hair Oil (2020) – Does It Really Work?

My Review: 10 Days Hair Oil - Does It Really Work?

 

It’s time to review 10 Days Hair Oil – an Indian hair product that many people swear by.

So what’s so special about it?

  • Is it really “the best Ayurvedic hair oil in India” – as it claims?
  • Does it boost hair growth?
  • And most importantly – is it better than regular hair treatments?

Well – I analyzed this product carefully so here’s the actual truth behind.

Note: This review is based on my opinion + research on 10 Days Hair Oil.

So Let’s Get To The Review

Full Name: 10 Days Hair Oil from Hairole

Sizes: Only one version (100 ml or 3.3 oz)

Best Actual Price: Around $26/bottle 

Cheapest Place To Buy: Probably Ebay (for people outside India)

You can’t find it on any US retailer/website, so Ebay remains the only option.

Designed For: It claims to have 3 main purposes:

  1. Stop hair loss
  2. Cure dandruff
  3. Promote new hair growth (with regular usage)

In other words – it’s not designed for thinning or damaged hair.

My Rating: 5 out of 10

Worth Buying?: Definitely not it has enough bad points:

  • formula is far from what it claims
  • very hard to find outside India
  • expensive for the quantity

If you really want to spend your money wisely – I recommend going for a supplement that works way better.

 

What I Liked About It

  • Entirely based on natural compounds
  • Pleasant and light smell
  • Many authentic reviews available about it
  • Easy to find inside India

 

What I Didn’t Like About It

  • Most ingredients are hidden
  • Formula claims to use rare herbs (which are actually common ones)
  • Very thick consistency
  • Leaves hair very greasy (so you need to was it daily)
  • Needs to be used daily for best results
  • Expensive for the quantity
  • Doesn’t treat the cause of the problem from the inside
  • Hard to find outside India

 

 


What Is 10 Days Hair Oil?


Shortly – it’s an Indian product with an increasing popularity lately.

It claims to help shedding and hair growth by “its unique formula”:

  1. Contains 76 rare herbs.
  2. It only mentions the name of 4.
  3. Out of these 4, 2 are actually common ingredients of hair products.

For this reason – its formula claims look pretty shady to me.

Now – assuming the product does work, there’s a very high price you have to pay for it.

And I’m not talking about money:

  • its consistency is very thick and greasy
  • this makes it hard to apply on the scalp
  • still, the label recommends using it daily
  • you also have to wash your hair every time you use it

When it comes to price – it’s surely not the cheapest product (considering its really low quantity).

But compared to its other issues, that’s surely not the biggest problem.

Plus – it’s very hard to find outside India.

That’s why I don’t think it’s a great choice for anyone at this point.

But know that you know the main things about it – it’s time to analyze it closer.

 


#1 – Ingredients (6 out of 10)


The best thing about this product is that it’s completely herbal-based.

In other words – it’s also 100% natural.

But that’s pretty much the good part, because its formula has some major downsides:

  1. Full ingredient list isn’t given out.
  2. Only about 4 compounds are mentioned.
  3. No doses for any ingredients.

Now – 10 Day Hair Oil’s label claims it contains it’s a mix of 76 rare herbs.

But since it only gives out the name of 4, there’s something questionable behind.

However – let’s take a closer look at the 4 mentioned herbs:

  1. Bringha – strengthens roots and restores normal hair growth.
  2. Amla – reduces shedding and prevents graying hair and dandruff. [1]
  3. Aloe Vera – reduces dandruff and maintains a healthy scalp. [2]
  4. Tulsi – stimulates hair growth and strengthens follicles. 

Now – out of these 4 so-called “rare herbs”, I personally saw Amla and Aloe Vera in lots of hair products.

That’s why I can’t consider them rare at all.

So if you ask me, there’s something not right about 10 Days Hair Oil’s formula.


Conclusion

Even though it’s entirely based on herbal extracts, this product has a couple of flaws:

  • doesn’t disclose its full ingredient list
  • claims that some of its regular compounds are actually “rare herbs”
  • no doses for any ingredient

Despite looking like a good product – I personally believe its brand is far from honest.

That’s why I wouldn’t really recommend this oil.

 


 


#2 – Smell & Texture (8 out of 10)


Here’s what you should know about this product’s consistency.

1. Smell

Since it’s entirely based on herbal extracts – it’s obvious this hair oil is going to have a herbal scent.

In terms of intensity, though – it’s not very strong:

  • feel like a mix of herbs and peppermint
  • doesn’t stay in the hair for long
  • shouldn’t bother people who are sensitive to smell

Overall – it’s surely not my favorite product in terms of smell.

But it’s pleasant and has a mild intensity, so I can’t criticize it.

2. Texture

When it comes to consistency, remember this product is a hair oil.

So it’s obvious that its texture is quite greasy and thick:

  • not very easy to apply
  • doesn’t soak in instantly
  • it never absorbs completely

Basically – you should know that this product is going to leave your hair greasy.

If you were worried about this, unfortunately it’s a fact.

So keep in mind that you have to wash your hair every day you apply the oil.

 


#3 – How To Use It (6 out of 10)


Firstly, one of the things that bothers me most at this product is that it doesn’t offer any directions on its website.

In other words – you have to buy the product first if you want to see how you should use it.

And that’s definitely a bad strategy from its brand.

Other than that – its actual directions aren’t excellent either:

  1. It’s recommended to use the product daily.
  2. You have to apply it on your scalp then massage.
  3. Some sources say that you should let it sit for about one hour.
  4. You can wash your hair afterwards.

Basically – for best results, it needs to be applied daily.

Since it has a really greasy and unpleasant texture, that’s not some great news.

Plus – you have to wash your hair everytime you apply it, which is again inconvenient.

So it’s up to you whether you want to use it or not – but I surely wouldn’t.

 


#4 – Results (7 out of 10)


First of all – I didn’t try 10 Days Hair Oil myself.

For this reason, there’s no way I can share my personal experience with it and how it worked for me.

Instead – I tried to look at other users’ opinions on it.

In this way, you could see an unbiased perspective on this product.

Note: I only analyzed authentic reviews, not promotional ones.

1. What People Say

As I said before, this product isn’t sold on Amazon (which is the retailer whose reviews I usually analyze).

However – 10 Days Hair Oil’s official website has lots of authentic reviews.

It’s true that most are written in a very bad English, but you can pretty much understand the point.

And since the opinions are quite mixed up, I’m pretty sure they’re not biased.

So here’s what most people say:

  1. Some claim this product made miracles for their hair.
  2. Others say it stopped their hair loss with about 50%.
  3. A few others state it’s excellent for growth.
  4. On the other hand, some criticize its high price.
  5. Many others complain that it’s been out of stock for a long time.
  6. Others simply claim it doesn’t help.

Now – I usually avoid reviews from the brand’s official website (they tend to be fake positive).

But in this case, I found many negative reviews – which made me believe they were legit.

Here’s what I’m talking about.

2. Biggest Complaints

As I said, I found enough negative reviews on 10 Days Hair Oil.

Here’s what most people complain about:

  1. Very high price for the quantity.
  2. Product is hard to apply and it leaves hair very greasy.
  3. Not effective for hair loss/growth.
  4. Out of stock for a long time.
  5. Causes local side effects (like rashes, itching, etc.)

Now – it’s obvious that not product can work for everyone.

So if some people claim it doesn’t help at all, it’s not necessarily so (especially when others claim it helps).

However, most of the other complaints are definitely real.

So this hair oil is far from perfect.


Conclusion

In terms of customer satisfaction – 10 Days Hair Oil has mixed opinions.

But if you ask me, I would not buy it any soon:

  • doesn’t work for everyone
  • mostly a local remedy
  • doesn’t treat the actual cause of hair loss behind

If you really want a product that solves your problem from the inside, I recommend a supplement.

It’s actually cheaper and its effect is much better (even on the long term).

Not to mention that it’s a lot more comfortable to use.

 

 


#5 – Price (7 out of 10)


10 Days Hair Oil has both a good and a bad side at this chapter.

So here’s what you should know about its price.

1. The Exact Price

Normally – this product costs around $26 on its official website (standard price):

  • this is the equivalent converted from Indian rupees
  • there are also discounts 

To be honest – $26 doesn’t seem a high price at first sight.

But considering the quantity (3.3 oz bottle), it’s not very affordable either.

And there’s one more thing.

According to the label – you have to apply the product daily for best results.

This means a 3.3 oz bottle can’t last more than a month (in the best case).

So you end up paying a lot more per bottle.

That’s why I would probably not buy this product ever.

2. Competitors’ Price

I would only compare this product with one of my top-rated hair products.

I’m talking about a supplement called Hair Growth Support + from Nuzena. 

  1. 10 Days Hair Oil is a topical product that works on the outside.
  2. Nuzena’s product is an oral one that treats the cause of the problem from the inside.
  3. 10 Days Hair Oil normally costs $26/bottle.
  4. Nuzena’s supplement costs $35/bottle as a standard price.
  5. However, Nuzena offers a serious discount for larger quantities.
  6. In this way, you can get it for about $18/bottle.
  7. Plus, Nuzena allows you to pay any order in 4 monthly installments.
  8. In 10 Days Hair Oil, you have to pay the whole amount at once.

Now – the supplement I recommend seems pricier at first sight.

But if you take a closer look, you can get it for a bargain price.

Considering its quality (compared to 10 Days Hair Oil), it’s definitely a lot more worth it.

So if you want to spend your money wisely – that’s what I recommend instead.


Conclusion

10 Days Hair Oil does seem quite cheap at first sight.

But if you take a closer look – it’s quite pricey actually:

  • low quantity for the money (3.3 oz)
  • you have to use the product daily
  • a bottle runs out very fast

For this reason – I recommend going for an alternative that has way more advantages.

If you really want to see a fast effect in your hair, that’s what I recommend instead.

 


#6 – Where To Find It (4 out of 10)


If you’re living in India, things don’t look too bad:

  1. Main seller is its official website.
  2. Also available in other 3rd party sellers.
  3. You can also find it in some local shops.

However, the real problem comes if you’re outside India.

That’s because – despite its popularity – this product is very hard to find:

  • not sold on Amazon, Walmart, etc.
  • also not available in drug stores or beauty shops

So pretty much the only retailer where you can find it is Ebay.

Now – when it comes to Ebay, things aren’t amazing:

  • prices are very different from the real ones
  • shipping may cost more than the product itself
  • sellers aren’t always trustworthy

That’s why I personally consider Ebay a lot more dangerous than retailers like Amazon or Walmart.

So if I were you – I would surely not order 10 Days Hair Oil from there.

In case you’re living in India, there are enough options.

But if you’re not, I wouldn’t recommend this product any soon.

 


 


#7 – Final Conclusions


Here’s how I would sum up my opinion on 10 Days Hair Oil.

1. Disappointing Formula

Though it claims to contain 76 “rare herbs” – this product only gives out the names of 4.

And out of these, only 2 are rather rare and unknown:

  • Bringha
  • Tulsi

As for the other 2 (Aloe Vera and Amla) – they’re both common in hair products (and not only).

So they’re far from “rare herbs”. 

That’s why I was severely disappointed by this product’s ingredient list.

If you ask me – it’s probably a lot weaker than it claims.

2. Daily Use Required

If you want to get the best results from this product – you will have to use it daily.

That’s not very comfortable, but there’s more:

  • product has a very thick consistency
  • it leaves hair extremely greasy
  • that’s why washing it afterwards is a must

Basically – the label recommends letting the product sit for an hour, then washing your hair.

If you’re a busy person, it’s impossible to do this daily.

3. Very Hard To Find Outside India

That’s a fact, unfortunately:

  • this product is sold on several retailers in India
  • in the other countries, you can mostly find it on Ebay

Amazon, Walmart or any other US retailers don’t sell any product of this kind.

So availability isn’t its top point, that’s for sure.

 


My Verdict – Is It Worth Buying?


Short answer: Clearly not.

Though it’s far from a scam – there are enough things that don’t look right about it:

  1. Incomplete ingredient list.
  2. Some of its ingredients aren’t as rare as it claims.
  3. Needs to be applied daily for best effect.
  4. Leaves hair very greasy and dirty.
  5. Mostly treats the symptoms on the outside.
  6. Expensive for the quantity it has.
  7. Very hard to find outside India.

Now – if you’re living in Europe, US or Australia, I would surely not recommend it.

However, I actually don’t think it’s a smart buy even for Indians. 

It’s only a topical product – so it improves the problem on the outside.

But only as long as you use it.

If you quit it, the symptoms are going to come back within a few weeks.

So what should you use instead? A supplement:

  • solves the problem and its root from the outside
  • a lot easier to take
  • really good price overall
  • effect is faster, stronger and it lasts on the long term

Now – my top recommend supplement is usually Folexin.

But unfortunately, it’s not available in all countries in the world.

So if you can’t have it shipped in your country – I recommend an alternative with the exact same formula.

It’s called Nuzena Hair Growth Support + and it’s one of the best hair products I know.

Compared to 10 Days Hair Oil, it’s way superior.

Therefore – if you really want to spend your money wisely, going for a supplement is a must.
