It had been quite a while (read ages) since I last oiled my hair. The last time I had oiled my hair was when I was in school. Recently, I decided to give the Lalam Oil Plus Hair Oil a go because of two reasons. One, I was planning to include hair oiling to my hair care regime. Second, I have got sent a bottle of the hair oil by the brand right at that moment. It’s been a month since I started using this hair oil religiously and today I’ll share with you my experience.
Lalam Oil Plus hair oil comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a flip cap and the bottle comes inside a white box which has all the information printed on it. The packaging is nothing special but it is totally spill-proof, thus very travel-friendly.
Formulation & The Science Behind-
Prevents hair loss, stops premature greying and promotes growth.
Based on an extract from a hairy root culture from basil, Root Phytotec HO helps reduce hair loss by inhibiting 5α reductase activity and by stimulating dermal papilla cells.
Hair loss affects both women and men. In 95 % of all cases of hair loss occurring exclusively on the head,
the cause is an increased sensitivity of the hair follicles
to the androgenic hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Androgenic alopecia, which is the name of the condition, is hereditary, permanent and continues as one gets older.
Root Phytotec – a Novel Technique developed to produce Cosmetic Actives
For the production of Root Phytotec HO, Mibelle Biochemistry developed a novel sustainable technique to produce high amounts of the active compounds of basil in bioreactors.
The “hairy roots” technology is a type of plant tissue culture that is used to produce high quality, phytogenic compounds of pharmaceutical value.
Long lasting benefits of Root Phytotec
• Prevents hair loss
• For fuller hair
• Stimulates hair papilla cells
• Rejuvenates scalp
My Experience with Lalam Oil Plus Hair Oil
My scalp is always very oily. That is the reason why I wash my hair more often than I should. It tends to trip off the natural oils from my scalp. So, it was necessary for me to oil my hair at least twice to stop my hair from getting dry. I always thought, if I oil my hair it will make it worse since my scalp is already very oily. But, to my surprise, it did nothing of that sort.
I use this oil thrice a week to avoid any extra oiliness in my hair but the company says the best results will show up if you use this oil every day. If you are like me, use it thrice a week and you will get a good result too. It has arrested my hair fall for about 60%.
The best thing about this oil is that it is non-sticky and does not cause any irritation to my scalp or facial skin. A great tip on hair-oiling for you would be- always apply hair oil on a clean scalp. Shampoo your hair first and then apply the hair oil the next day. It will allow the oil to come in contact with your scalp and provide nourishment.
When I massage my scalp with this oil, my hair looks and feels more manageable than ever after I wash my hair. It has a mild fragrance of herbs, mostly methi. The smell lingers for long even after a couple of washes.

Hi, guys! If you follow me on my social media then you must know that I attended a #VLCCStyleStatements session a few days ago. VLCC is India’s leading wellness brand that is the one-stop destination for all your skin and hair concerns. They have various beauty services and personal care services. Also known for their weight loss services, VLCC has several therapies and treatments for beauty and wellness using natural sciences. In this post, I am going to talk about the VLCC skin treatments.
At the event, we had Mr Rohit Murgai, Head- Beauty Sales, VLCC Healthcare who discussed with us various beauty treatments that VLCC has to offer. We got to know about various usual services like Vampire Facelift, Medavita Treatment, Kerafusion Treatment, Microblading and two new treatments that have been introduced in VLCC, Kolkata i.e. Ionic Detox and Cryofreeze Therapy. I’ll elaborately talk about each of them later. Also, read till the end to see if your questions have been answered!
Different VLCC Skin Treatments
Most of us must have heard about Microblading, but despite that, we are not much familiar with the term. Mainly because the treatment is not easily accessible and not many places in India have this facility at this moment. We were being informed about this process by Mr Murgai when we got to know the difference between Microblading and Eyebrow Tattoos. Microblading can be called semi-permanent makeup. In this process, pigments are inserted into the epidermis, whereas in tattoos, pigments are inserted deep into the skin. We were lucky enough to have witnessed a Microblading session up close during our event. The expert had a pen-like tool with which she was actually drawing some hair-like strokes on the client’s eyebrows. This process takes almost up to two hours to complete depending on the thickness followed by a touch-up within a couple of weeks. We were told that these pigments last for 15-20 months. VLCC is a trustworthy place to stop by for microblading in India, mainly because they have the best experts.
Mr Rohit Murgai told us about the two new treatments that have recently been introduced to VLCC, Kolkata. One of them is Ionic Detox. In this therapy, the client goes through a pedicure which sucks out all the toxins from different organs of the client’s body. The description sounded was quite interesting. We were told that the colour of the water in the pedicure tub changes from transparent to black, green or muddy brown depending on the organs that release toxins.
Another thing that is new to VLCC, Kolkata is this Cryofreeze Therapy. This is mainly an anti-ageing therapy that gives you an instantaneous glow. This is a 20-minute session in which your body temperature is taken down to sub-zero level to constrict your blood vessels. Now, when the temperature is black to normal, the blood gushes back to the entire body giving it an instant tightness, glow and it also instantly reduces the appearance of your fine lines. This therapy is another intriguing one.
Now, we were requested to ask our questions to Mr Murgai and he answered all of them with a smile. I am going to list down Mr Murgai’s answers to the question that you had asked me on Instagram and Facebook. Most of the cures included cosmetological help.
1. Remedy for Hair loss
Firstly, Mr Murgai made it clear that hair loss is curable at any age. There are different therapies that you can try out like Medavita or Mesotherapy in which certain proteins and vitamins are infused into your scalp. Else, you can go for hair transplant, hair patches and toupees or Polydioxanone Threads which is an advanced solution of Androgenetic Alopecia in which hair strands are thread embedded into your scalp.
2. Remedy for Frizz
The more humidity, the more frizz. At VLCC, they have a treatment called Kerafusion that is a keratin therapy for hair. In this process, your hair is given a coating of Kerafusion which makes it more manageable. Another thing is called Velour that is an advanced, in-depth Medavita treatment that is a re-energizing frizz-reduction treatment.
3. Remedy for Open Pores
You need to go through a daily CTM (Cleansing-Toning-Moisturizing) routine. Exfoliate your skin on a regular basis. Use a scrub that has walnut, avoid those that have small beads. There is a tool called derma roller that helps to reduce the appearance of open pores. You can also take help of collagen-based products that helps fill in the pores from within. One of the VLCC skin treatments include Vampire Facelift which is great for treating open pores, as well as dark elbows and knees.
4. Remedy for Dark Circles
Dark Circle happens because of the lesser blood circulation under your eyes. You need to increase the microcirculation there by getting yourself a proper treatment. You can go for a vision energy treatment or you can try eye cell treatment which is best for deeper dark circles. The only thing to consider and remember is that dark circles never go away completely, a treatment can only lessen their appearances.
We were also introduced to botox and fillers by Dr Das who is a very skilled dermatologist. Those are very common ways of improving one’s facial aesthetics and slow down ageing. Also, one very important thing that I have learnt there is that everyone person is born with a different skin type. So, we all need a skincare that is tailor-made keeping that particular skin type and skin conditions in mind. If two people have oily skin that doesn’t mean that the oil-free products that suit one will also suit the other. We need to get our skin tested to find the best products according to what our skin needs.
The event ended with some healthy snacks. The #VLCCStyleStatements session was very informative and enriching. I as well as you got to know about a lot of things. I hope you liked knowing about the VLCC skin treatments as much as I did.

Hi, guys! It’s Saturday and I am here with a new post as promised. My new year resolution was to post thrice a week- on every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and I am happy to see that I have successfully pulled off the first week! Today, I am going to review an iconic hair styling product- Bedhead by TIGI After Party Smoothing Cream.
TIGI is a brand that makes amazing hair care and styling products. Their Beadhead range has some great quality products for almost all types of hair. We all have one or the other hair concerns, and each is different from the other. In my case, I have an oily scalp and dry, frizzy hair. My hair concern has always been to tame that frizzy, unruly hair until I found this miracle by TIGI. My hairstyling game has changed completely since I got introduced to the Bedhead by TIGI After Party Smoothing Cream. I’ll tell you how.
Packaging- The Bedhead by TIGI After Party Smoothing Cream comes in a very cute bright pink coloured plastic bottle with a bulb-shaped cap. It comes with a pump which makes it easier to control the amount of product you need for your hair. All the information about the product is written on the pack itself. The packaging has made it easy to travel with.
Ingredients- Dimethiconol (Imparts shine and body), Propylene Glycol (Conditions and moisturizes hair), Mica (Enhances shine), Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil (Provides gloss), Bismuth Oxychloride (CI 77163) (Enhances shine).
The Product- The Bedhead by TIGI After Party Smoothing Cream is a white cream with lots of finely milled shimmer particles. The consistency is like a mousse or whipped cream which makes it a light, airy cream to be applied to the hair.
How to Use- Take a dime-size amount of the Bedhead by TIGI After Party Smoothing Cream and apply to your dry hair before or after blow-drying. I apply it through the length of my hair, avoiding the scalp area.
How does the Bedhead by TIGI After Party Smoothing Cream work?
Bedhead by TIGI After Party Smoothing Cream is meant to tame unmanageable hair and also those pesky flyaways. This cream actually works as a leave-in conditioner that not only works to manage frizzy hair but also adds shine to your hair so that it looks healthy and party-perfect! This product is a boon for those who have dry, wavy or curly hair.
My Experience with Bedhead by TIGI After Party Smoothing Cream
I received this product right before my bestie’s wedding which was a four-day-long event. You know how freaked out you are at your best friend’s wedding? You want to look perfect, your dress needs to be a unique one, your makeup needs to be on point, your hair needs to be well-behaved. That was all that I wanted for my bestie’s wedding. That was the first time I tried out the Bedhead by TIGI After Party Smoothing Cream to tame my frizzy hair as I had planned to keep my hair open. The wedding took place almost around midnight and I was all decked up since the evening. I was amazed to see how brilliantly the product had worked on my hair. I kept my hair in place for about 10 hours! I could have hardly believed this if it wasn’t me who experienced it. For 10 long hours, my hair stayed in place, no flyaways, no frizz, no tangles. The shine and the softness remain till the next wash. I am utterly impressed by the product and I would definitely recommend you guys to give it a shot.
The best thing is that it does all the good work without weighing down the hair or making it look or feel greasy. It maintains the volume of the hair and does not make it limp. I am utterly impressed by the product and I would definitely recommend you guys to give it a shot.
That was it for today’s post. Make sure to share this post with your family and friends if you liked it.

Hey, guys! If you remember my recent Snapchat stories then you must know that I have been to the Radiance Salon last week to try the Moroccanoil Hair Smoothing Spa using the amazing products from the new Moroccanoil Smooth range. I had promised you guys to write down my experience on the blog and now I am here with it.
Moroccan Argan oil is something that needs no introduction. Argan oil is produced from the kernels of Argan tree that grows mainly in South-Western part of Morocco. Argan oil is great for your skin and hair that it is popularly called liquid gold. With each use of Argan oil, rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, results in soft, smooth and glowing skin and hair.
Moroccanoil is a brand that pledges to transform beauty industry with all their hair care products infused with genuine Argan oil. Recently they had invited me to try their Smoothing Hair Spa treatment using the new Smooth range. Read to know all the steps to beautiful hair-
As I stepped into the salon, I was seated by the very polite staff and then offered water and beverages which I found really sweet. Then I was introduced to the expert (I forgot his name. I always forget names :/) who was about to turn my unruly mane into beautiful tresses.
Hair Smoothing Spa Treatment Using Moroccanoil Smooth Range: The Process-
The process started with examining my hair. The expert told me that I have a combination hair type- oily scalp and frizzy hair. He advised me to use two different shampoos- one for the scalp and another for the hair. After he was done with examining my hair, he went straight ahead to wash my hair.
Step 1: My hair was washed thoroughly using the Moroccanoil Smoothing Shampoo. It felt so nice because of the mild fragrance it contained.
Step 2: My stylist mixed some drops of Moroccanoil Treatment Oil with the Moroccanoil Smoothing Mask and made a mask according to the thickness and length of my hair. He then divided my hair into sections and applied some amount of the mask to each section very carefully. He made sure that the product does not go up to the scalp.
Step 3: He then started massaging my head which felt so relaxing and rejuvenating that I almost fell asleep. The massaging ensures that the product is distributed evenly and it also helps in improving the blood circulation which boosts hair growth.
Step 4 (Optional): The fourth step was a 3 minutes steam which my stylist said is not necessary with Moroccanoil products making it convenient for using at home.
Step 5: My hair was rinsed again using the same smoothing shampoo and then my stylist used a pump of the Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream and applied thoroughly to the lengths of my hair to protect my hair from the heat of the blow dryer.
Step 6: Finally, my hair was blow-dried and set to step out of the salon.
Here is a before and after for you-
Moroccanoil Smoothing Hair Spa: My Thoughts
I totally loved the experience from start to finish. The way my hair felt after the treatment is inexplicable. It made my hair visibly and touchably soft, airy and really bouncy. My hair smelt divine after the treatment.Moroccanoil treatments do not require steam so you can try it at home. The products are a little expensive but they are totally worth the price you pay. The difference is visible after the first use. Moroccanoil products are free from harsh chemicals like sulphates, phosphates and parabens which makes them safe to use, unlike other haircare products. The new Moroccanoil Smooth Range is enriched in “AminoRenew™ which restores amino acids back into frizzy, unruly hair. This infusion mends broken disulphide bonds, which helps to align the hair shaft— resulting in more manageable hair with a smooth appearance.” (Source: moroccanoil.com).
Moroccanoil products are meant for treating all types of hair. They have products for each hair type, treating all kind of hair concerns. These are great for chemical treated hair. My hair felt so shiny, soft, silky, smooth and frizz-free. The effect lasted on my hair for the entire week until the next wash. Even after washing my hair off a few days after the session, it felt soft and smooth. I really loved the whole experience. I would suggest you to give this treatment a try. You will definitely love it.
Hi all, I hope you all are doing great. I can’t believe it’s already September, that means a few more weeks to Durga Puja! If you follow me on Facebook then you might know that I was about to review two products last week, but due to some reasons (read Internet Issues) it got delayed. Today’s review is one of the them. Today, I am going to review a hair care product by Garnier Fructis that was launched long ago. It’s the Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Oil-in-Cream. I know I am too late to review this but better late than never, right?
Let’s get into the review-
Price- Rs 60 for 100g| Rs 100 for 200g
The Oil-in-Cream by Garnier Fructis was launched a few months ago along with a shampoo and conditioner duo from the same range. I have reviewed the Triple Nutrition Shampoo and Conditioner here.
Packaging- Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Oil-in-Cream comes in a yellow, plastic tube packaging with a flip open cap.
Product- Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Oil-in-Cream is a white, cream like product. Despite being a cream is does not feel heavy on your hair as the consistency is more like a lotion than a thick cream. It’s a lightweight, non-greasy nice-smelling product.
My thoughts- First of all, letme tell you all that my hair is not as healthy as it seems in photos. In real life, it is frizzy, unruly and thin. The first time I used this product I was completely overwhelmed by the fact that it actually made my hair shiny, soft and more manageable. I won’t be exaggerating if I say that this product is my ‘deep-conditioning treatment in a bottle‘. This product can be used in three ways-
As an overnight treatment, by massaging the product into your hair and scalp for 1-2 minutes and leaving it overnight.
As an oil, by massaging it into your scalp for 1-2 minutes, just before washing your hair.
As a leave-in conditioner, by applying it onto you hair lengths after treating your hair shampoo and conditioner.
However, I have used only the 2nd and 3rd way. As my scalp is very oily, I have skipped the overnight use. Overnight oil treatments always freaks me out as whenever I try it I wake up like an oily mess. After using my shampoo and conditioner, I take a coin sized amount of product onto my palm and then I run my fingers through the lengths of my hair. I love applying it as a leave-in conditioner because I feel in this way it works best for my hair.
Another thing I loved about this product is its soothing fragrance. If you are reading my blog for a long time you would probably know how keen I am about nice fragrances. I don’t like strong fragrances but I definitely like soothing, sensuous ones. This product has a very mild, soothing fragrance that I would want in every hair product I own. The fragrance lasts for a long period of time, leaving your hair feeling fresh for a long time.
Next and the most important thing that I liked about the Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Oil-in-Cream is that it does not make my scalp or hair look oily or limp. It does not weigh my hair down. It does not take away the volume provided by the prior hair wash. It does not cause hair fall. It works as a hair oil without feeling like a hair oil. Using it after hair wash makes a huge difference in my hair. I have noticed a very smooth, healthy-looking, manageable hair after using this product.
I recommend Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Oil-in-Cream to everyone who suffers from dull or frizzy hair. Even if you do not have any hair problem you can still try this amazing product. Have anyone of you tried this product yet? Share your experiences in the comments below. I would love to know how it worked for you. The next review post will be up very soon. Till then be safe & keep smiling!
Hello all, how are you? My exams are still running and I have three more papers to attend. Anyways, today I am going to post my final verdict about the Happy Hair Challenge I took with Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition shampoo and conditioner duo.
A few weeks back, I started using the new Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition shampoo and conditioner and now as it is officially one month of using it, I am ready to share my views with you.
Before starting the review, I want you to know that I was made to fill in three evaluation forms starting from the initial to final stage of using the duo. In my last post I had shared with you my hair story- the problems and needs before using the shampoo and conditioner and in this post I will share with you my hair story after using them for 30 days.
The problems I faced before using these are hair fall, oily scalp and dandruff. You can see my previous post where I have talked about these issues. The first impression I had while using the Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition shampoo was that it smelt amazing. It does not have that chemical-y strong scent, rather it was mildly scented which I love. The next thing I knew while applying it to my scalp was firstly, it easily and evenly distributed and lathered very well, secondly, it made my hair feel really smooth during the wash. Its consistency makes it spread evenly. It is not highly concentrated which is again a good quality for me as I don’t have to work hard to dilute it to make it easy for applying. A problem I have with most of the shampoos I have used recently is that the moment I start massaging them into the scalp the hair fall starts, but with this shampoo the hair fall during wash is just one-third of the usual which is really surprising. I won’t say that my hair fall has stopped entirely after using the shampoo for one month, but it surely has reduced noticeably. I did not find anything that would prove that this shampoo controls or prevent the greasiness of the scalp. I find its effect on oily scalp very common to any other shampoos, not anything palpable. I must tell you that it has worked on my dandruff problem quite well and I can see the difference after using it continuously.
The conditioner is supposed to work on scalp and on hair too but I have noticed that using it onto my scalp made the crown area very flat, no volume at all. So, I discontinued using it onto the scalp. Overall, the conditioner is a perfect complement for the shampoo and it works very well to keep the hair tamed. I did not face a great problem of unmanageable hair but the little did I have is now gone with the help of this shampoo and conditioner. My hair is visibly and touchably soft and smooth. It appears more shiny and well-behaved while I keep it open. It is now very easy to try various hair styles without the fear of facing messy hair problems.
The best things about Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition shampoo and conditioner are that this range is super affordable and totally true to its claims. This was my ultimate experience with the Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition range. I would totally recommend it to all of you. Hope you liked this post. Will be back again with a new post. Till then stay safe and keep smiling!
The Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Shampoo & Conditioner Duo and My Current Hair Story
In recent times, a lot of you have told me that I have gorgeous hair. Thank you for that. But, that’s not the story. Let me tell you why. Yes, I am blessed with a voluminous hair. Once I shampoo my hair it just becomes so puffy but it’s not thick usually. I used to have very thick hair, but as time passed on my hair grew weaker and thinner. It surely looks voluminous and thick after washing and blow drying but what we see is not always the truth.
I got a chance to use Garnier‘s new launch which is a duo called Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition shampoo and conditioner. I wish to review them later this month so I thought of sharing my current hair story and the factors I am concerned about. Let’s have a look-
The first and most terrible problem I am facing now-a-days is hair fall. It might be extreme educational stress that I am going through now or my ignorant lifestyle. I tend to sleep very late and I consume very less water. I don’t think my diet has affected my hair fall as I love veggies and I eat a lot of them daily.
Secondly, I am facing dandruff problem throughout the year. It’s not flaky, it’s rather very sticky. I have used different anti-dandruff shampoos but they failed to solve the problem. The dandruff is gone after washing but it keeps returning in a few days.
Thirdly, I have a oily scalp problem. I wash my hair in every 2 days but this has not helped me at all. I feel a need to wash my hair every alternate day as it starts feeling greasy from the second day.
So, this the current condition of my hair. I am looking forward to the Garnier Triple Nutrition duo. I hope they succeeds in eliminating the extremely stubborn dandruff and oiliness. Stay tuned to read my next post on this for updates. Till then stay safe and keep smiling!
