Himalaya Herbals - Anti-Hair Fall Shampoo | My experience ( Review)

About the Product
Himalaya's Anti-Hair Fall Shampoo is a breakthrough 2-in-1 formula that reduces hair fall and provides nourishment to hair shafts. It also conditions and improves your hair texture to reduce hair fall due to breakage. The herbs Butea Frondosa and Bhringaraja stimulate hair follicle growth and are effective in strengthening hair roots and controlling hair fall.

Key ingredients:

  • Bhringaraja is traditionally used in Ayurveda for hair growth and hair dyeing. It nourishes the hair root, improves hair texture and reduces hair fall.
  • Butea Frondosa or 'flame of the forest' is native to India and Southeast Asia. It strengthens hair and helps promote hair growth.

Directions for use:
Gently massage the shampoo into wet hair and scalp. Leave for two to three minutes, and rinse thoroughly. Repeat if necessary.
Effective for all hair types. Safe to use on artificially colored or permed hair.

Pack size
7.5 ml, 100 ml, 200 ml, 400 ml and 700ml.
My Experience :
Bhringaraja and Butea Frondosa were the main ingredients that got in interested in this shampoo. For the past few months i have been shedding crazy amount of hair and it could be because of coloring, heat damage, pollution, stress or just seasonal, so when the PR contacted me to review this shampoo i immediately said yes and i have used it a good number of times to have a strong opinion about it.
This shampoo has a consistency like any other, thick and creamy.  After using it a couple of times i didn't notice any difference in the quantity of hair i was shedding but honestly i was being unrealistic. Do not except immediate results and be patient. It does take time for the shampoo to reduce hair fall and improve your hair condition. It cleans my hair really well and removes oils and product buildup.
It can be slightly drying for dry hair but it works fine for be with alternate conditioning.
After using this shampoo for over a month now i do see less hair in the shower, my hair has grown out a little faster i can say that as i have colored hair and i can see very distinct difference between my new grown hair (which is dark black) and the old colored hair (medium brown).  
I would say this shampoo is worth trying but don't keep unrealistic expectations as no product in the market can completely stop hair fall until and unless there is a specific known reason behind it.

Archana Rao’s label “Frou Frou” collectively brought out the tradition behind the most common Japanese beverage - tea. During the Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014, the brilliant designer once again managed to dazzle with her new collection, “Teaism” based on the culture of Japan.
She brought back the feel of a relatable collection with just the right touch of quirkiness that could make anyone nostalgic. 

Outhouse and Akaaro at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter Festive 2014


Known for their unconventional jewellery designs, Kaabia and Sasha Grewal for their label “Outhouse” presented their stunning collection called “The Column” at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014. Lustrous gold was entwined into magical pieces that were influenced by the regal look of Greece and Rome. Playing imaginatively with gold, the designer duo proved that the precious metal was versatile enough to be draped like liquid silk or moulded firmly.

The pair was inspired by Proto-geometric art and linear meanders to present a more basic but bold collection. Adding to the beauty of the jewellery were semi-precious stones like amber, turquoise, pearls, garnets and lapis lazuli to create glitz and glamour.

The pair gave the Maang Tikka a New Age feel but with  a Mohawk- like design that rose in curves on the heads of the models, while the earrings flared up to reach the hair turning into large lacy covers. Chokers cascaded down the necks of the models with a line of interlinked pendants or were clasped around the necks with multiple layers.  Belt-cum-shoulder or body harnesses, ornate cropped gloves, windmill inspired ear cuffs, leather/tassel shoulder dusters, cross body leather/gold belt, and spikes erupted from neckpieces. Towering looped Maang Tikka, Haath Phool, facial décor garter-cum- harness and finger cuffs turned ordinary jewellery categories into conversation stoppers.

Opulence was the apt word to describe the jewellery as spiked bangles, looped and tasselled necklaces, shoulder ornaments and neckpieces had intricate attachments while armlets as well as enticing danglers for the ears stole the limelight.

The striking ensembles that matched the avant garde look were courtesy JV by Jatin Varma who added his geometric touches to balance the grand ornaments.

For women who dream of looking like mythical goddesses showered in jewels, “The Column” by Kaabia and Sasha Grewal will make it a reality.

The most distinct aspect in a Gaurav Jai Gupta show is always the fabulously woven textiles with weaves and yarns that defy imagination. For Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014 Gaurav’s collection for his label “Akaaro” presented “Meen”, a line which had exclusive hand woven fabrics in Fulia, Lycra, silk, cotton and zari from Bengal, Benaras and Chanderi. The collection was inspired by underwater reflections in urban Indian landscapes.

Using discreet toned down metallic colours as the base; Gaurav added some pastel accents for added impact. Emphasising on strong woven detailing in some segments, the collection’s ensembles were all engineered to perfection. The colour story was as interesting as the weaves with black and golden grey in variations moved onto blue and silver.

Proving his mastery over weaves and stripes, the saris with crushed pallavs worn with an assortment of pleated waist coat, front open jacket, acid yellow silk cropped shirt or striped long sleeve silk cotton blouses were beauties on the ramp. 

Simple basics like kurtas and pants, long practical cotton achkan dress, tunics with hints of glimmer, engineered cotton zari waist coat/maxi and asymmetrical jacket with cotton dhoti pants, had weaves that were exclusive as well as intricate.

Being faithful to his understated minimal designing inputs, Gaurav Jai Gupta’s collection for LFW WF 2014 offered his personal stylish contemporary line of festive wear for the Indian woman.

My Independence Day Look ~ Tri-color eyeliner

I was really pumped up for this Independence day and i wanted to do something or rather wear something to reflect my patriotism. I love pairing a white kurta with colored legging and dupatta but sadly i don't have any at the moment that fits me right :(

So, all i would experiment with were my eyes, i donno why i have a feeling that i have posted something similar earlier but this is the look that i actually wore for the entire day.

I skipped foundation and all that jazz so you can see in the pictures i don't have that perfect skin :P

The pictures came out a bit darker as i clicked them in a hurry :P , i love how this looks is fun and colorful but not over the top and pretty much wearable !!
We went to connaught place in the evening to see the huge flag and decoration, on our way we spotted many flags and animal figures made out of flowers and after reaching there we realised that it was a bad idea as streets were flooded with people and traffic was crazy but we did manage to get a table at Zen and had an amazing dinner with family.

I know am late but a very Happy Independence Day to all fellow countrymen. :P

How did you celebrate Independence Day ?? I would love to know :)

Till next time...

Wedding Bells : Glimpse of my Engagement (Roka/Misri)

I have been stressing out for leaving my blog unattended for weeks so as a come back post i wanted something personal and special, what could have been more special and personal than talking about the most heart-warming day of my life.. my Roka, some people call it Misri or godh bharai or Tikka its a cultural thing and people have many different words to address it.

So, as i announced on my Instagram on 6th July 2014 about this big day most of you already know that i am getting married (oh god, i am really getting nervous typing this) i really can't express how special i felt reading all your message, it felt like you all were a part of the day.

I just felt everyone was by my side and that feeling is beyond anything in this world.. sometimes i get way too emotional and get carried away trying to express myself so we'll leave it here (but you know what i mean) . Thank you so much !

A lot of you have been messaging and asking me about the function, how we celebrated it or basically what it is all about and what i wore, trust me i am not ignoring or trying to hide anything.
I will be sharing pictures and also would answer all the question on my YouTube channel.
 It might take some more time but it will be there.

Also, you can send in your ideas on what you would like to see in future.

 For this post i'll leave you guys with some pictures to build up your excitement. :P Thanks again !!

This is it for now, there are many more pictures to come (better ones :P)

Have an amazing day !!

Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette Sneak Peek !

Coastal Scents launched their Revealed 2 palette on 3rd June 2014, and at the launch the palette was up on the site for $ 9.95 only for just 48 hours. So straight away i placed my order and yesterday i.e. on 19th June i received my palette.
As it was a new launch and the palette was on sale my order took 3 days to process and they shipped out the palette on 6th June. I was expecting it to arrive a little sooner but am glad it came safely.

I haven't used the palette yet just swatched few shades, i'll post the swatches and review by next week. Meanwhile here are few pictures of the palette. 

Btw, they also sent 4 eyeshadow samples and the shades are amazing !! 

Free Samples !!
Its a perfect neutral palette, and so far i am really liking it.
I'll be back with swatches and my review soon.

Till next time.
