Have you ever noticed how most Indians have really thick, lustrous hair?
The secret lies in a simple routine that is followed in almost all Indian homes – mothers and grandmothers would often make the young girls of the family sit down once a week, and with a bowl of warm oil by their side, they would massage the scalp and the length of the hair with this oil.
indē wild’s brand-new offering – Champi hair oil is an homage to that same ritual and yes, this too has been created by a mother.
In the early 1980s, a young Sangitha Khosla was walking around her own garden in Chennai, picking ingredients that would be beneficial for the hair and body. Four decades later, and a career practicing dermatology and Ayurvedic medicine, she found herself applying those recipes on her daughters (one of which, our Founder, Diipa Khosla), teaching them about ingredients like Brahmi and other natural herbs and flowers. Today, we proudly introduce you to the Champi Hair Oil – a generationally beloved, potent Ayurvedic formula that will bring your hair back to life!
What exactly is champi?
Well, in the simplest of terms, champi is a method of massaging the hair and scalp with oil; this ancient method has its roots in ayurveda and is known to stimulate the nerves in the scalp, leading to better hair growth. The process of champi is also known to relax the mind, help reduce stress and even improve memory.
What makes our Champi hair oil special?
What was once a closely guarded family secret has been fine-tuned and perfected to create what we present to you as our Champi Hair Oil. The oil is a combination of 11 active ingredients as well as 5 carrier oils, each of which has been carefully chosen for its restorative and healing capabilities. So, while amla helps your hair become radiant and strong, tulsi can rejuvenate hair follicles from within. And while coconut oil can nourish the dullest of hair, Indian argan oil can help reduce frizz! Once you start giving your hair the regular champi oil massage, you will notice that there is an improvement in the hair texture, reduction in dandruff and grey hair and also lesser scalp infections and irritations. And then there is the fact that the massage can help relax you and give your mind the chance to unwind!
How does one use this oil?
The herbal champi hair oil has been made to nourish, soothe, repair and rejuvenate your hair – so you can use it as your pre-shampoo routine or you can use it as part of an overnight treatment protocol. All you have to do is take 2-3 pipettes of the oil and massage the oil into your scalp and then work your way down to the tips of the hair. You can wash the oil off within 20 minutes of application or you can leave it overnight – either way, we would suggest that you warm the oil for 10 seconds before using and using a wide toothed comb to ensure proper distribution of the oil through the length of the hair.
This dermatologically tested oil, has completely natural ingredients, which constitute an all-in-one, multi-purpose hair treatment that can condition and deeply nourish hair from within. It improves scalp health and that in turn reduces hair loss, dryness, itching and improves hair growth. The ingredients in the indē wild Champi hair oil are not only meant to improve hair quality, but also soothe the mind and improve focus and memory.
