A blind test?

Hey everyone!

Now, I know all of you will answer in the affirmative if I asked you whether you desire long hair or not? I am no exception too. I have had very long hair for most part of my school life, and then college happened and I almost chopped them off to above my shoulders! Since the last few years again, I have been growing my hair to get them back to their former length, which, by the way, was till my lower back 😀 .

Being a Scorpion, I love suspense. And unveiling things gives me kicks! 😛  So when I recently got a chance to take a ‘blind test’ with this shampoo and conditioner which claims to give us long hair, I jumped onto the opportunity excitedly.

Pantene Daily Moisture Repair shampoo and conditioner: Review & Challenge

Hey everyone!

Since the last few days, I have been using the Pantene Daily Moisture Repair shampoo and conditioner for my hair. My past experiences with the Brand have been not-so-good, so when the Pantene team approached me to take up a 14-days’ challenge with the products, I was naturally quite skeptical. But finally, I thought, one last time! So I started using these some 3 weeks back, and even though the 2-weeks’ challenge could have ended then and there, I’m still using these, coz, surprisingly, these ARE working on my hair.

Sunsilk Radiant Shine shampoo and conditioner- Review

Heyy everyone!

Today I’m reviewing my current favorite shampoo and conditioner- the Sunsilk Radiant Shine range of products! When I started using these products, I had no idea they’d become such favorites of mine! I remember Bharti of Crazy Pop Lock blog telling me the last time we met that my hair looked very smooth, soft to touch and almost as if they had just been blow-dried, when in reality, I hadn’t blow-dried them at all!

TRESemme Climate Control Conditioner: Review

hey everyone!
How are you all doing? 
Today I’m reviewing one of the conditioners that I’ve been using the past 2 months now, the TRESemme Climate Control conditioner. I have been using it with the shampoo from the same range, and the shampoo has already been reviewed by my friend Sakshi HERE. This post will just be related to the conditioner. Read on!
tresemme climate control conditioner review

About TRESemme Climate Control conditioner: This product helps prevent frizz all day long by creating a barrier between your hair and the weather. Smoothes the hair cuticles, leaving strands looking shinier and more vibrant, ready for styling.
Price: Rs. 64 for 100mL
Packaging: The conditioner comes in a white bottle, as opposed to the bottle of the shampoo. There’s some turquoise and silver here and there on the bottle, and it has a press-to-open top. Unlike other conditioner packaging in the market, this one isn’t an inverted bottle or tube 😛

Ingredients: Refer to the image below.
tresemme climate control conditioner ingredients
My take on TRESemme Climate Control conditioner: The conditioner is a creamy product, white in color. It gets dispensed and spreads easily, and can be applied to wet hair with ease. It washes off with ease too, and leaves the hair feeling soft to touch. No slippery residue behind. In terms of ‘frizz control’, it works okayish, nothing too great. It does control frizz, but not completely. After 2 usages, I feel the need to use a hair mask/ deep conditioner, else my hair becomes really frizzy (they are in a beach-wavy state right now, so they tend to be frizzier than normal). The hair remains soft for about a day, but the next day my hair definitely feels dry. So, I don’t particularly love this product. Nor do I hate it!

Pros of TRESemme Climate Control conditioner:
  • Smooth, creamy product
  • Easy to use
  • Marginally controls frizz
  • Softens the hair
  • Does not weigh down the hair, or make them oily
  • Totally affordable

Cons of TRESemme Climate Control conditioner:
  • Frizz-controlling property could have been better!

Verdict: If you have normal hair, give this one a try. Those with really dry hair, like me, may not find this to be the best! At it’s price, this is one of the best conditioners for normal hair.
Rating: 7/10 (works alright for a day, though I wish it worked better on frizz)

Sunsilk Radiant Shine range

Let your hair sparkle every day with the new

Sunsilk Radiant Shine!!!

~ A new hair care range that gives your hair a healthy shine~

sunsilk radiant shine shampoo and conditioner

Mumbai: As per research conducted by an independent research agency, 96% girls desire shiny hair. But their common complaint is that their hair often turns dull with time. Sunsilk realizes that a young Indian girl’s hair needs to keep pace with her exciting and demanding life to enhance her naturally vibrant and attractive persona. It strongly, believes that every girl deserves to have healthy, shiny hair that allows her to go through an eventful, long and demanding day, looking her best. But daily stresses like harsh sunlight and excessive pollution may rob the hair of essential shine and moisture, and leave it dull and limp.  Comprehending this situation, Sunsilk put its expert team on the job and designed a perfect solution in the form of ‘Sunsilk Radiant Shine’, an innovative product, which gives long lasting hair shine.   So get ready to flaunt your shiny tresses and stand out with confidence as the new Sunsilk Radiant Shine adds a radiant shimmer to your hair.

How does it work?

Sunsilk Radiant Shine has ultra light fusion of oils from ingredients famed for their beneficial effects on hair – Argon, Jojoba, Camellia, Almond and Olive. The dual effects of oiling and washing to a large degree soften the hair texture not just from the outside, but actually aim to ensure that the hair receives its share of nourishment at periodic intervals. The light oils permeate upto three layers deep and give hair a natural sheen that stays as the day progresses. Sunsilk Radiant Shine shampoo and conditioner work in combination to produce an enduring visibly glossy look that stays on and on!

Sunsilk Radiant Shine has been created by the in-house expert team in association with the internationally renowned shine expert for hair, Jamal Hammadi; who is also known for his natural approach towards achieving healthy and long lasting shiny hair. Jamal emphasizes on the common complaint by girls, where shiny hair often turns dull within time.

Jamal saysThis happens because the nourishment just stays on the surface and evaporates very easily due to harsh sunlight and excessive pollution; stripping the hair of its radiant glow. When it comes to long lasting shine, I strongly recommend the use of ‘Sunsilk Radiant Shine’ shampoo and conditioner.  It is enriched with ultra light fusion of 5 natural oils. It provides nourishment to the hair and radiant shine. Use the shampoo along with the conditioner to get long lasting visibly glossy hair that stays on and on!

On this highly innovative creation, Jamal continues It is a feeling of pride and honor to be a part of the Sunsilk family, as one of Co-Creators. Sunsilk Radiant Shineis definitely the new best friend that every young girl must have and get ready to flaunt that beautiful shiny mane all day long

So girls, shine your way with self-confidence and assurance of Sunsilk Radiant Shine!

Say NO to gaps with the new Dove Intense repair Range with Keratin Actives

Say NO to Gaps!
The New Dove Intense Repair Range with
Keratin Actives helps Rebuild Damaged Hair at the Cellular Level
New Delhi, 29th May 2013:
‘You look exactly the same!’ While it’s great to hear that from someone you haven’t seen in years, you hope they don’t mean your hair. No woman enjoys wearing the same hairstyle day in and day out, much less for years together. We all love experimenting with our hair, whether its various styling products or instruments to make our hair look beautiful. In the attempt to look our best, we end up overlooking the daily damage we put our tresses through. 

Knowingly or unknowingly, hair damage is often self-inflicted. A gamut of factors are responsible for damaging hair, not just on a superficial level but from deep within. Constant and excessive exposure to the sun and daily pollution may strip hair of its natural luster, making it weak, dull and lifeless.
Self-inflicted activities such as blow drying, straightening, perming, colouring, etc. may leave hair damaged. Continual exposure damages the hair at cellular level causing gaps in your hair. This results in recurring hair problems in spite of various efforts women make to keep their hair nourished and damage-free.
Recognizing this need to repair hair damage at a deeper level, Dove introduces the new Intense Repair Range with ¼ moisture milk with the Keratin Actives that goes deep within strands to reconstruct hair by strengthening it at its core. So now with the Dove Intense Repair range, you can have healthy beautiful hair that’s strong and resilient to damage. Dull and damaged hair is transformed into shiny and smooth hair.

Speaking about hair damage, Ms Meena Rajan, R&D Head – Hair Category said, “We all like experimenting with hair, but in the long run, damage takes its toll within the structure causing gaps due to severe damage of keratin. Dove Intense Repair range with Keratin Actives works at the cellular level of the hair structure and helps reconstruct damaged protein making the hair strong and resilient to damage.”
Mr. Srinandan Sundaram, General Manager Hair Care adds, “At Dove, we know that when hair problems keep coming back, it means something is amiss at the cellular level. Signs of hair damage never show up alone. If it’s breakage now then it’s dryness later. New Dove Intense Repair with Keratin Actives goes deep within strands to repair damage”

It may seem that understanding what causes ‘damage’ is half the battle against it but to win the other half, you need expert-care. So, say no to gaps. New Dove Intense Repair Range reconstructs hair at the cellular level making it strong and beautiful.
Say No to damage!

Ramp-ready hair a distant dream?

Hey everyone!
I recently came across this TRESemme Ramp Ready Hair campaign on Indiblogger.in
I promptly applied for the shampoo and conditioner samples, since my friend Sakshi, who has already reviewed the TRESemme Climate Control Shampoo HERE raved about it much. I mean, you don’t get a product worth a 10/10 rating everyday, do you? Especially when it’s a shampoo which claims to control frizz!


So, when I received the shampoo-conditioner duo, I started using it too. And I must say, it totally does wonders for dry, frizzy hair. It makes the hair much more manageable than other hair-care products that I’ve tried in some time.

I headed over to the TRESemme India Youtube channel, and was bowled over with the range of hairstyles they have showcased for each hair type, be it straight, wavy or curly. The channel is interactive in design, and you can check out a host of things, like how to get a salon like hair-wash at home, or various styles.

From the various styles, my favorite ramp-ready hairstyles are the voluminous one-side braid and the balloon ponytail.

You can check out some more styles, like Butterfly ponytail, twisted hairband, messy side-bun, etc. The hairstyles have been illustrated in a very simple way, and most styles are very easy to re-create in real life. I’m saying this, because I know how difficult it is for a working professional like me to get ramp-like hair in a jiffy. Not that I have to walk the ramp :P, but we don’t think of ourselves as anything less than models, do we?

I’m sharing with you all some moments from my life, some ramp-ready hair moments!

Messy plait (as seen in the video on Tresemme Youtube channel): In the above pic, I’ve shampooed and conditioned my hair with Tresemme Climate Control range. Then I left the hair to dry naturally. Back-combed a section at the crown of the head, and the rest of the hair I wore in a plait. Then I just loosened some sections of hair in the plait. The end result was a messy side palit. Very chic, wearable, and apt for summers.

In the above pic, I’ve curled my hair over-night using Bendi curlers, without the use of heat or any hair spray/ mousse.

As you can see, with TRESemme products and videos, ramp-ready hair is definitely not a distant dream!

Have you seen and tried any videos from TRESemme’s Youtube channel?

The Body Shop Rainforest Moisture Conditioner- Review, swatch

Hey everyone!
Yesterday I reviewed the TBS Rainforest Balance conditioner (read review HERE). I use it since I have an oily scalp. But the rest of my hair is dry, so for conditioning the hair, I am currently using the TBS Rainforest MOISTURE conditioner, which is meant for  dry hair. Read on to know my take on this product!

For dry and damaged hair.

Cruelty free 🙂
Price: Rs. 515 for 250mL. Now, the prices have been increased to about 700 bucks!

Packaging: The Body Shop Rainforest Moisture Conditioner comes in a tall bottle which is opaque, off-white in color. The opaque nature of the bottle makes it difficult to gauge the amount of product left inside. The bottle has a flip-top opening, which is a little flimsy. I always have to dig my nails under the opening to flip the top, dreading my nails would break some day! It is nevertheless a travel friendly bottle.

Ingredients: Aqua, Cetearyl Alcohol, Distearoylethyl Hydroxyethylmonium Methosulfate, Cocos Nucifera Oil, Orbignya Oleifera Seed Oil, Citric Acid, Cetyl Esters, Sodium Benzoate, Parfum, Hydroxypropyl Guar, Schinziophyton Rautanenii Kernel Oil, Salicylic Acid, Mel, Pentaclethra Macroloba Seed Oil, Tocopherol.

Shelf life: 12 months after opening

Directions for usage:For best results, mix in the hands with water. Work through hair from root to tip.

the body shop rainforest moisture conditioner paraben silicone colorant free

My take on The Body Shop Rainforest Moisture Conditioner: The conditioner is a white product, with a not-too-thin-not-too-thick consistency. The moment the conditioner is applied to wet hair, it feels as if the hair strands just drink up the product! It gets dispensed from the bottle without much struggle and is easy to use. It has a strong smell, which I really do not like. I cannot identify what it smells like, but I do not like it at all. Thankfully the fragrance does not stay for long.

Coming to the efficacy, I have a feeling this conditioner does not do much for my dry hair (barring the scalp). I mean, it decently moisturises the hair strands, but my hair left asking for more. It controls frizz to some extent, but again, I’m not 100% satisfied! The hair does become soft(er) to touch, and the conditioner does not weight he hair down, as claimed. I cannot say whether it is THIS conditioner or some other products I’m using these days, but the number of split ends is a little less currently. So I’m happy on that front too!

It is easy to wash off from the hair, and detangles the hair too, so they are easy to comb afterwards.

Pros of The Body Shop Rainforest Moisture Conditioner:

·         Smooth, creamy conditioner

·         Easy to use

·         Decently moisturises the hair

·         Detangles

·         Does not weigh down the hair

·         No parabens, colorants, silicones, etc.

Cons of The Body Shop Rainforest Moisture Conditioner:

·         I wish it moisturised the hair and controlled frizz better!

·         The price has sky-rocketed! I wish our share markets also follow suit!

Verdict: A so-so conditioner for dry hair! If you have very dry hair, look for something else!

Rating: 7.9/10
