Hello guys, thank you for coming back to my blog. I am here with a new review post for you. I have already showed a lot of behind the camera activities while clicking pictures for the post. My Snapchat username is sayantinee in case you want to follow me for more sneak-peeks and behind the scenes stories.
I love my hair and who does not? I always promise myself to keep a proper hair care regime and to pamper my hair a little bit more but I always fail in keeping the promise. I am a lazy person, very lazy. Ever since I started saving money, I wanted to colour my hair but I was afraid of the chemicals and ammonia present in the so called hair colours. It was until I found a natural product that is ammonia-free and really effective. It is the Prem Henna Kaveri Hair Henna.
About the brand, Prem Henna- “Prem Henna is a leading manufacturer and supplier of premium quality hair color products & skin care products. Our wide range of hair color products like powder and crème hair colors in various shades provide consumers with a wide range of options to cover their greys. Our henna and henna-based hair color products are absolutely free from ammonia (no ammonia).”
This brand has a variety of products for hair care and skin care. Their Kaveri and Prem Dulhan henna cones are for your hands and feet, they have creme-based hair colour named Nisha and Enega Brilliance, henna-based hair colour named Kaveri, So Silk shampoo and Elois hair removal cream.
I have used the Kaveri Hair Henna and So Silk shampoo.
Price- Rs 10/- for 15gms
Kaveri Hair Henna review-
Kaveri hair henna hair colour looks like the usual henna powder that are easily available in the market. The packaging is just an ordinary plastic sachet packaging which needs to torn apart in order to take the product out. Each sachet contains 15 grams of product. For my medium-length thin hair I needed one full sachet. You will need two packets if you have long, thick hair.
The Kaveri hair henna comes in two colours- one is Natural Black and another is Natural Brown. I chose the shade Natural Brown as I don’t like the stark black colour in my hair. As soon as you mix it it will turn into a dark brown coloured paste. It might look scary or at least it seemed scary to me because I never coloured my hair before. I applied it to my hair with the help of my hands (obviously wearing a pair of gloves). The application was quite easy, it was not messy at all. I think it is more convenient to use your hands than using a brush. Thus you can reach each and every strand easily. I let the paste dry off completely, it took me almost 40 minutes for that and then rinsed it off in the shower using the So Silk shampoo.
The result was really good and apparent. It made my hair soft and silky. It did not make my hair rough but I prefer applying a conditioner right after washing it off to prevent any chance of frizz. For the hair colouring part, I would say it was not quite visible as my hair is naturally dark brownish so I could not observe any noticeable change in the hair colour. But, I could observe a slight brown tinge in my locks when exposed to direct sunlight. This colour lasted for about 15 days. I do not have grey hair so I cannot really tell you if this henna covers up grey hair or not.
THE RESULT- Visible where the sun hits the hair
I won’t give five stars to this product because I caused me hair-fall during the hair wash procedure.
Ammonia free hair colour.
Doesn’t make hair rough.
Makes hair soft and silky.
Takes less time to dry.
Lasts for almost a couple of weeks.
Downs- Caused hair-fall.
Overall, I quite liked the Kaveri Hair Henna as it’s natural, ammonia-free and does not do any harm to my hair. If you have never coloured your hair and are planning to do it, I would suggest you to try this out rather than trying those chemical-based hair colours available in the market. I believe you will end up liking it. I hope you liked this post. I will be up with an exciting post very soon. Till then, be safe & keep smiling!
Do you like applying henna to your hair?
*N.B.– I had used this a couple of weeks back for the first time. I was ready with my review until I found that I don’t have plenty of pictures which might be helpful for you. This is just to clear the confusion because you might have seen the pictures has been taken today. I just wanted to clarify that the review was written a week ago but the pictures are taken today.
Hello people, hope you are doing well. First of all, I want to apologize as I got too busy after the holidays and could not wish you all individually. So, sorry for that. Thanks to all those who wished me. Happy New Year to all of you!
If you are following me on Snapchat (Hope you do. Username- sayantinee) you would probably seen my snap where I showed a picture of my journal. Here it is-
I have taken a resolution of publishing all the pending posts this year. So, I am up with a long-pending review which I am going to share with you now.
I received a bunch of sachets of the So Silk shampoo from the brand Prem Henna a couple of weeks ago. I got too busy, I don’t even remember why, thus the delayed post. Today, I thought of sharing with you a quick yet detailed review of this shampoo.
Price- Rs 1/- for each sachet
As I said earlier, I got a bunch of sachets of this shampoo and not a bottle. I don’t think they have started manufacturing bottles yet. I hope they do it soon. The packaging is nothing exceptional, just the regular plastic sachet packaging.
The product is a cream shampoo with the benefits of soy milk protein. The soy milk protein helps in nourishing your hair from the roots, making it stronger and healthier. This shampoo is for all hair types, it worked well for my dry, frizzy hair. The packaging looks quite similar to that of a popular brand, but it differs in many ways. First of all, So Silk shampoo does not have any strong, chemical-ly fragrance, rather it has a very soothing, mild fragrance that will instantly remind you of ayurvedic or herbal products. I loved how it made my hair smell so fresh. The fragrance lingered for quite a long time.
The So Silk shampoo lathers really well. You can feel it’s cleaning your hair really well. It made my hair softer right after the wash. After drying completely I noticed my hair was looking nourished and rejuvenated. But, there are a couple of things I did not like about this shampoo.
They can’t be used alone without conditioners. Rather, conditioning is a must after using this shampoo. It might cause hair fall while combing if you don’t use any conditioner.
I am not comfortable with sachet packaging.
I hope they come up with conditioners from this range and also introduce bottle packaging soon. Overall, I liked the shampoo. It is a good option if you are looking for safer products for your hair within budget. Let me know what you feel about this product.
Have you used So Silk shampoo?
Hope you enjoyed reading this post. Will be back with a new one shortly. Till then, be safe & keep smiling! Happy New Year, once again 🙂
