Kerastase Chronologiste Treatment at Jean Claude Biguine

Remember my visit to the Jean Claude Biguine Salon a few weeks back??

As I told you earlier, after analysis, my hair was detected to be medium oily with little flakiness.This is due to my constant travel and washing my hair in water from different places.

The Kerastase Chronoligiste treatment
Because-day after day-hair endures the damaging effects of time(the drying and weakening induced by UVs, repeated colour treatments and pollution), La Recherche Avancee L’Oreal sought inspiration in the unique revitalizing properties of caviar. The source of natural life to create an exceptional care treatment.
The moment I heard caviar, it was like eeewwwww….Nooooo. Then Nikhita assured me that it was just the essence of caviar recreated with synthetic enzymes.
The treatment pack getting mixed
Enjoyed the hair treatment with hot lemongrass-green tea.yummm…
The hair – All glossy, smooth and clean after the treatment :-))
My take on the treatment
The likes
1) My hair usually turns limp after about a day of washing. But after I took this treatment, the hair was bouncy and nice for a longer period even after shampooing.
2) Evident reduction in hairfall rate which lasted for almost a month.
3) Hair felt smooth ie visible improvement in texture which was also a major concern for me.
The dislikes
1) The effects were not too long lasting. But I am not too sure about that because it is a treatment. Probably a few more sittings are needed for the same to show permanent results.
2) The treatment is priced on the higher side.
Other than that I just loved the experience as a person loving hair treatments and since I also don’t like compromising on quality.
Would I take the treatment again?
Yes…..I personally would love to treat my hair maybe once a month.
Recommend it to others?
Well….as for the quality of the treatment, YES. If you are on a budget, you may take the treatment in case of any special occassions. In case you don’t mind spending around INR 2000 for your hair, it will be a good monthly treat for your manes.
PS – Visit and treatment facilitated by brand for review purposes. However, my review is honest as always.

Sri Sri Ayurveda Anti Dandruff Shampoo Review

Dandruff is a common hair problem these days, with the increasing air pollution, hard water, stress levels and all such issues. Especially in a highly polluted city like Bangalore, it is year round trouble, add to it the “hardest” water that you can ever find. Sometimes I shudder seeing the kind of residue it leaves on my glassware, cookware..Imagine what must be happening to the skin and hair??

I never had dandruff problem till the time I started living here, but once I was here it became a permanent trouble. I tried many things to keep the scalp problem at bay – some things gave a temporary relief and some flopped miserably.

Some of the things that helped me to a large extent were:

Schwarzkopf Anti Dandruff Shampoo

L’Oreal Professionel Hair Spa+Power Ampule shots Treatment(Done once a month)

Urad+Mustard hair pack – great remedy, but the stink would make you puke.

Now coming to the point, I happened to visit one of the centres of Sri Sri Ayurveda around 2 months back and found a lot of skin care products in their range. I have used many of their ayurvedic supplements and in fact have found them genuine as well as super effective. So I decide to give some products a try and my first choice was the Anti Dandruff shampoo.

Sri Sri Ayurveda-effective herbs Anti Dandruff Shampoo with Conditioner – For all hair types

Ingredients
Kumari(Aloe barbadensis), Nimba(Azadirachta Indica), Nimbuka(Citrus medica), Japakusuma(Hibiscus Rosasinensis), Oils of -Narikela(cocos nucifera), Vatada(Prunus Amygdalus) and preservatives.

What the product claims?
Sri Sri Ayurveda Anti Dandruff Shampoo is enriched with the natural goodness of Lemon, Hibiscus, and Neem. The anti dandruff and anti fungal properties of Hibiscus and Neem are tough on dandruff and gentle on the scalp. Lemon tightens the cuticles and cleanses every strand of your hair.

Bridal Beauty Tip(2) – Amla for healthy scalp and lustrous hair

A bride should look totally beautiful and glowing on her wedding day. This not only includes her face and body, but her teeth and hair too.

Here is a simple tip for lustrous hair + no dandruff scalp. A hair pack using two of the most easily available ingredients in the Indian kitchen.

Amla(Indian Gooseberry) + Milk

 +
How to use it

Take 3 or 4 medium sized amla/gooseberries and poke with a fork making a lot of deep dents in the fruit.  Soak the gooseberries in about a cup of milk at night. The next day, cut the gooseberries and remove the seed. Grind the berries in a mixer along with the same milk used for soaking. Make a fine paste. Apply this paste on scalp for about 20 – 25 minutes and wash it off using luke warm water. Try to avoid shampoo atleast on the day you have applied the pack. If you are very particular, you may use a very mild ayurvedic shampoo.

So what is the mystery all about?

Few weeks back, I received an email invite for trying some hair care products. The brand name was not revealed in the mail and it was named as “Mystery Shampoo”. This made me quite curious and I went ahead to check out their website. There was a form to be filled in, after which the company would contact us and send across the product. I filled the form almost till the end, but there was some technical problem with updating the address. Thus I could not proceed further. It was a disappointment, but then I was quite busy with work and did not bother to try again.

However, the product was revealed to consumers and public a few days later. I guess many of you are already aware of this product range by now.

Yes, it is none other than Pantene- now supposedly revamped and re formulated to suit different purposes. Lets take a look at what it is all about.

What it is all about?

150 million in over 40 countries have tried it, a product that got right into the root of the toughest hair problems – hair loss, split ends, unruly tangles. See a visible difference. Get out of your hair rut within 14 days with the All New Pantene range.
