Well Hello, there my gorgeous #RedCarpetCurlsRoyalty,
Welcome back to the site (hope you’re subscribed), otherwise you miss gems like this review!
Today, I am back with a super thorough review of two amazing oil treatments from Sudtana!
Sudtana is a proudly owned family-valued brand. A triad of siblings with a profound quest to inspire people through self-empowerment and what they hold dear as the introspective power of nature. The company is run by Eldest sister Mew Leelahongjudha (Hiiiiii Mew, thank you sooo much for changing my life with these products and making my hair loss problems due to liver treatment, almost non-existent!
Sudtana products are ones you are going to use in your own everyday rituals by using nature. Each ingredient has a purpose, and each product they create is natural and effective. They do not compromise the quality of the ingredients in their skincare and haircare products. Each of their ingredients is ethically and responsibly farmed sourced directly from responsible farmers using eco-friendly and organic farming methods. They stand for the well-being of our planet through organic farming and natural ingredients over synthetics.
Now, that introductions have been made and I have finally used up my entire first bottle of the Bergamot, Coconut & Sesame Nourishing Hair Oil, I definitely am firm in the following review of these two awesome, all-natural hair products! So, let’s get to it!
Promise: This all-natural hair mask inspired by ancient Thai herbal remedies nourishes follicles with essential vitamins & minerals. Gentle hydration soothes dryness and frizz for a naturally soft, silky look & feel! Starts promoting thicker hair growth and slows hair loss with natural sources of vitamin A, D, and E. Strengthens your hair from the inside for more volume and bounce. the pH of 6.0 is perfect for sensitive skin conditions like eczema.
Verdict: This hair mask absolutely delivers on what it promises, nourished follicles, and beautiful silky smooth shiny bouncy hair! 10/10 From the first use I had much more voluminous and shiny curls.
Now, let me just start by saying this 4.05oz bottle lasted me MONTHS! I used this oil as a pre-poo about once a month to keep my hair nourished and protect it from drying out causing split ends and breakage. Perfect to keep my 3a/3b high porosity curls strong and healthy!
I normally start my pre-poo treatment by utilizing the steam from my Q-Redew Hair Steamer. Why? Because I am one of those people, that hates to re-wet my hair if I am not in the shower. It feels like more work, and in my lazy moments, I’m not going to lie to you, more often than not I will skip it if I am too lazy. Steam helps me cut my routine time down and keep my hair properly hydrated and moisturized without that heavy wet feeling of water dripping on my shoulders.
The hair steamer gives your hair water in a moist vapor form. The warm vapor lifts the cuticle of the hair strand, releasing tangles and hydrating the hair ( water is the ultimate hydrator for hair besides aloe vera). The steam also gently hydrates the scalp! Remember healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp. Steam even helps loosen debris on the scalp and cut through any build-up.
This is the perfect first step to incorporate oil that is meant to nourish follicles right? Smart cookie over here!
Since oil does not hydrate the hair, I use the steam to really hydrate my hair and prep my scalp to ensure all the nutrients from the oil penetrate as deeply as they can while the treatment sits in my hair.
To be as gentle with my hair as possible (to avoid split ends and breakage), I use the steam to help detangle my hair so I can simply rake the oil through my hair after fully saturating my scalp with it.
To encourage further hair growth, I take about 2-3 minutes to massage the oil into my scalp. The physical act of massaging the scalp encourages hair growth by increasing circulation to the scalp. Massaging the oil into my scalp helps me make sure my follicles are taking in all the nutrients provided by the oil.
You can leave this oil in anywhere from 15 minutes to overnight! It can be used up to 2-3x a week depending on your hair needs. For example, I have pretty fine(density), healthy color-treated curls, so once a month is normally fine for me. But if you have a lot more damage in your hair, find your sweet spot, which can be once a week, once every two weeks, or even monthly. The choice is yours, listen to your hair needs.
Once I wash my hair and style, I am always left with GORGEOUS curls that are full of life. I’m not going to lie I spend a good part of that wash day flipping my fabulous curls. To think one simple oil blend provides soooooo much nutrition!
I know I’ve mentioned nutrients a lot but that’s because the ingredients in your products are so important. Remember the first five ingredients on your ingredient label are what roughly 80% of the product actually consists of. So let’s take a look at the first five ingredients of this hair mask oil to see what you are really getting:
- Sesame Seed Oil– According to an article in Pharmacognosy Journal, Sesame seed oil contains a lot of fatty acids like palmitic acid, oleic acid, linoleic acid, and linolenic acid. These fatty acids help nourish the follicles encouraging growth and when applied to a clean scalp moisturizes the scalp helping keep dandruff away. Sesame seed oil is also known to help darken hair color.
- Coconut Oil– According to a 2014 article in the International Journal of Life Sciences Research, “Coconut oil is one of the best natural nutrients for hair. It helps in the healthy growth of hair, giving it a shiny quality. It is also highly effective in reducing protein loss which can lead to various unattractive or unhealthy growth qualities in your hair. Coconut oil is extensively used in the Indian sub-continent for hair care. Most of the people in those countries apply coconut oil to their hair every day after bathing or showering. It is an excellent conditioner and helps the re-growth process of damaged hair. It also provides the essential proteins required for nourishing and healing damaged hair. Research studies indicate that coconut oil provides better protection to hair from damage caused by hygral fatigue.”
- Shea Butter– According to a 2017 article in the Journal of Biology, Agriculture, and Healthcare, “It serves as a good source of protection for the hair against the harmful free radicals in the air and water and harsh weather conditions. Shea butter when applied to the hair and absorbed, it coats the hair shaft and hence protects it from heat. This protective activity is particularly beneficial for hair that has been processed or colored hair. When Shea butter is applied to the hair before swimming it protects the hair against salt and chlorine. For damaged and brittle hair shea butter has a softening and revitalizing ability. Shea butter has a non-greasy texture hence can control and spread the excess oil in the scalp.”
- Bergamot Oil– According to a 2018 article in the Wiley Food Science & Nutrition Journal, bergamot oil aids wound healing and reduces inflammation. This may help promote hair growth and a healthy scalp.
- Tocopherol- Also known as vitamin E, ” Vitamin E may help support a healthy scalp and hair as it has natural antioxidant effects trusted Source that could assist with maintaining hair growth. The vitamin’s antioxidant properties could help reduce the amount of oxidative stress and free radicals that cause the hair follicle cells in a person’s scalp to break down.
Seriously, you can’t go wrong. Whether you are starting your journey with damage, or you are looking to grow your hair back healthier and faster. This 4.05oz bottle offers you heaven each and every time, and not just from the magnificent scent!
& Tumeric Scalp &
Promise: All-natural herbal scalp remedy inspired by traditional Thai wisdom to help detoxify and cleanse impurities and buildup from the scalp as well as to nourish and soothe the scalp from dryness, flakiness, irritations, and itching.
Verdict: No lies detected here. I love using 4-5 drops of this oil about 1-2x a week for scalp massages. What I love about this oil is that is it INCREDIBLY light, a few drops applied to your fingertips and massaged into your scalp gives an amazing bergamot fragrance while stimulating the hair follicles. Now the promise of detoxifying and helping cleanse build-up was a big promise but it delivers.
As I mentioned earlier, I have fine density hair, meaning my hair strands cannot hold much moisture. So, often product build-up is an issue as your scalp continues producing sebum and you continue to apply products, not to mention you sweat as well. I love using my Q-redew hair steamer to detangle and moisturize my hair, while the steam also helps cut through any breakup, this oil helps my scalp feel nourished but not greasy allowing me to stretch out my wash n goes.
This oil is really a boost to hair growth because of the nourishing ingredients (we will get to in a second), After a few months of use, I noticed the increase in hair growth, and thank goodness since I’ve been combating hair loss due to my liver treatment medications. I even had to push up my salon appointment to get my hair re-shaped/trimmed since it’s grown so much. The proof really is in the pudding, isn’t it?
Now, let’s get into those ingredients so you don’t think I’m talking out my toned bootie. Let’s take a look at the first five ingredients of this treatment and their benefits:
- Sesame Seed Oil- See above description
- Bergamont Peel Oil- See above description

According to The Derm Review, ” It may also have added benefits, acting as an antioxidant and soothing ingredient.”
- Linalool– According to The Derm Review, “Linalool is a naturally derived ingredient from essential oils that is used in skincare and cosmetic formulations to improve the scent. Linalool is generally associated with lavender however, over 200 plants produce linalool and it can also be found in citrus, mint, rosewood, and cinnamon oils. May cause irritation to sensitive skin
- Turmeric Root Oil– A key ingredient in Asia for its health benefits such as. turmeric root oil; keeps existing hair healthy while invigorating and revitalizing the scalp to promote hair growth! Purifies skin: fights skin conditions that can cause hair fall (such as psoriasis) and reduces redness from blemishes.
