Dr. Jains Greynil Herbal Hair Color Review

Greynil Review

This is a genuine review of Dr. Jain's Greynil Herbal Hair Color which is purely based on my experience. I am a regular customer of hair color and I cannot afford to miss coloring my hair due to the wide range of grey hair on my head. I suffered from grey hair at the very young age of mine and with the passage of time, it spread like hell. Initially, I did not care for grey hair as it was in a few strands but later it covered more areas and then I started using hair color. Many years passed like that with the chemical hair color but I was looking for some natural ways to color my hair to avoid damage from chemicals present in hair colors. I tried henna/mehndi also but with henna/mehndi, my hair looked more dried and frizzy. Then one day one of my friends suggested using Dr. Jain's Greynil to color my hair. She told me that this is herbal powder for the treatment of grey hair. Though this is also a henna or mehndi mixture, the herbal word attracted me and I thought to give it a chance.

Greynil mehndi packaging

Greynil Packaging and Texture: 

As the Greynil is the mixture of henna (mehndi) and Sofia oil so the texture of this product is the same as henna. The packaging you can see in the image. All the required details are mentioned on the outer packaging along with instructions to use. Packaging includes Greynil packet, instruction page and a pair of plastic gloves (to be used while application of Greynil paste) inside.

Greynil Shade and Price: 

Greynil comes in only two shades and they are black and brown shade. This is a  limitation of this product. I chose the brown shade for my hair. Price of this herbal powder mixture for the treatment of grey hair is Rs. 150 for 100 gm. 

Availability of Greynil: 

Availability of this product is not a big deal, this is available everywhere. You will find it in any medical store. Few general stores also keep it in stock but if you do not get it there then visit any medical store and get it for you. You may buy this online too at the same price.

How to use Greynil powder?

Dr. Jain's greynil review
Greynil paste prepared with boiling water
Take enough quantity of Greynil powder in a bowl as per your hair volume. Boil water in a pan and add this boiling water to the Greynil powder while stirring continuously. Mix them properly and make a paste. The consistency of the mixture should not be very thick or very thin. When the paste turns lukewarm then apply it to hair and let it sit for 2 hours. Once the duration of 2 hours completes, cleanse it with lukewarm water and avoid using shampoo.


I found the result same as henna or mehndi application. White hair turned golden brown still look differentiated from black hair. You can see the result it the below picture.

The result after Greynil application

Dr. Jain's brand asks to repeat coloring hair with Greynil once in a week for the first month and then later on you may increase the duration by 2 weeks. This helps to darken the grey hair gradually with the continuous application. Practically I cannot apply Greynil paste every week. I was not very satisfied with this color so I could not continue with this product for longer and discontinued using it thereafter.


If you have a broad range of grey hair and you are looking for something which really covers grey hair and gets merged with the rest of the hair then I will not recommend this product. In the first few applications, you will not get the result like you get after applying other hair colors available in the market. And if you have few strands of grey hair and you are interested to try some herbal treatment to darken your hair and also if you are patient enough to apply it every week then you may go ahead with Greynil.
