Nioxin Haircare Launch in Chennai



The first ever time I heard the word Dermabrasion was in 2009. Soon after Angelina Jolie appeared fresh faced in Cannes Film Festival in 2009, it was revealed that she's been undergoing Dermabrasion for 6 months. Derma + Abrasion = Abrading or scrubbing the skin. Technically a stronger version of scrubbing! Why am I talking about it here? Read on...
Recently Nioxin, a US based hair care brand was launched in India. The launch in Chennai happened at Bounce Salon at Nungambakkam. 
The story behind Nioxin is interesting. Ms.Eva Graham the founder, experienced a lotta post partum hair fall and when nothing else helped her, she decided to create her own hair care products and Nioxin was born, soon after her baby!!! Now for about 25 yrs they are specializing in thinning hair!
The concept of the brand is simple - Healthy scalp means healthy hair. Scalp is an extension of facial hair. So just like how you do as CTM for face, do the same for hair!
Hair has 3Ds according to them - Derma, Density and Diameter. So to keep these 3Ds healthy they have 6 technologies - Bioamp, Smoothplex, Activ Renewal, Glyco Shield, Treansactive delivery system, Scalp access delivery system. And these 6 technologies are mixed and matched in their 6 versions of hair treatment.
Systems 1, 3, 5 are for normal to thin looking hair & 2, 4, 6 are for noticeably thinning hair. 1, 2 are for regular, 3, 4 are for colored / treated & 5, 6 are for coarse / rough hair.
Whoever has watched Band Baaja Bride programme of NDTV Goodtimes, would remember when the brides' hair checkup happens, a close up camera that's taken to the scalp and zooms every hair strand and shows on the computer monitor and that usually scares the hell outta me. I always thought, if my hair was analyzed like that, either myself of the consultant would get a heart attack looking at my hair's condition. 
This fear came to life here!!!! My hair was analyzed and I saw my scalp up & close. But good news - neither of us got that heart attack. The consultant said my hair was fine which it has always been, but both scalp & hair were healthy. Since I've not colored or treated my hair, the Nioxin system 1 was prescribed for me.
Apart from this there are 2 in-salon products - Scalp Renew and Hair Masque. Now back to the first para of this post, why was I talking about Dermabrasion. Scalp Renew is an in-salon dermabrasion treatment with which they gave me an hair spa with as well. I was expecting a derma roller with micro needles on my head, like the original dermabrasion that Angelina Jolie did, but gladly that didn't happen! It was more like an enhanced scrub which the beauticians massaged with their finger, not needles!!! This is recommended only once in 45 days.
After that came shampooing  & conditioning. Haven't I always stated my love for menthol (here, here and here)? This has a lotta it! After shampooing my hair was chill! After conditioning it was chiller!! The chillness may have been maximized coz my scalp was abraded!!! It was chilllllllllll!!!!!!!! Lolz!
Does it actually work? I'm using it now. Wait & watch.. After about a month will let you know.

Btw, we are the pretty (ah, just bragging!) Chennai bloggers!!! And the inquisite me, clicking the CCD cups with my Oneplus One!!!

P.S: Nioxin is now in India. I am experiencing the magic of Nioxin in association with BlogAddaThe experience & product were gifted by the company for reviewing purpose, in collaboration with Blogadda, however the opinions are of my own experience and are this post does not to advertise the product.

On a Casual Date - Style 36



Blue Jeans are boring right? You can't have more than one unless there's something special about it. My friend has a Levis jeans, without waistband with exposed fly! You've seen mine with a zipper from ankle to calf. Just spotted a new one without waist button with its fly including waistband and a lace up detail covering the fly! Now, that's interesting and I had to get it.
One thing I've learnt in online shopping is that you've gotta get a size bigger than your actual size when you buy from nations with petite people - China, Malaysia, Singapore! And yeah I did so. The jeans fits perfectly well. A bit too perfectly that I can't afford to put on a wee bit also!!!
And yeah, I bought that tee at thrift store with a cute phoenix print on it!!! And how's that multi colored Fleur de Lis pattern on the wall? Will do a post on that soon. Wait n watch!!!

The Nature's Co Lemon Grass Massage Oil - A Review



The Nature's Co has been one of my favourite brands when it comes to skin care. Recently I came across their products, I spotted this one called Lemongrass Massage Oil. That really intrigued me. First thing, I love Lemongrass aroma (if you've been reading my other blog, My Travelogue, I had ranted about the amazing aroma of Lemon Grass at a hotel!). Second thing, the concept of massage oil. Esp., for a woman, there's nothing to beat, a massage oil with great aroma, and someone to massage, when she's having a menstrual cramps & back aches!!!
TNC Lemongrass Massage oil comes in a cuboid transparent plastic container and semi transparent screw lid. Its a pump dispenser with another lid separately for the pump. The oil is slightly viscous, which is necessary being a massage oil and has a yellow tinge. But it doesn't transfer to clothing.
It belongs to the Foressence section of the brand, meaning that its inspired by Forest! It contains lemongrass oil, sesame oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil & vitamin E. The aroma is very citrus-y with the lemon grass as main ingredient. It doesn't have castor oil, but when I opened the back I did feel like it had.
I really like this cute note that comes with the packaging that educates the user about the ingredient which is an awesome initiative! 
As usual, The Nature's Co comes with the Cruelty Free & Vegan promise, held up by PETA which I'm very happy about. Being a veggie myself, I'm always looking out for brands that re animal friendly as well. So this is in!!!
My suggestion, esp, if you're a woman, get this. The aroma that fills the room when this is used is so pleasing, and that feels heavenly on the frustrating menstrual days. Give to your mom or sister or best friend or boy friend - get her/him to put down all their might on your aching back and go to sleep!!!

P.S: The product was gifted by the company for reviewing purpose, however the opinions are of my own experience and are this post does not to advertise the product.

Himalaya Herbals Refreshing Fruit Pack - A Review



That's a fruit pack by Himalaya Herbals containing Apple & Papaya. Dunno about apple, but Papaya which gets too ripe to eat, were always used as face packs by my mom!!! When I saw this, I did get reminded of that!! This too is meant for normal to dry skin and not sensitive or combination, but I think my skin likes this too.
It comes in a white tube with flip cap. The color is beautiful, probably what you'll get if your blend papaya & apple, a dull yellow!!! A nice creamy texture. It has apple, fig, cucumber, papaya, and mineral clay. Though it has mineral clay, it doesn't really feel like it pulls out oil, like Multani Mitti, so if you're skin is really oily, this is of no use. But if you're on border, you might use. 
On my skin, it did give a tingly sensation. But I liked the feel it gave finally. The aroma is a fruity one as well. Compared to Neem facepack of Himalayas, I'd rather choose this, coz this doesn't make the skin feel stretchy, which the Neem pack did.

P.S: The product was gifted by the company for reviewing purpose, however the opinions are of my own experience and are this post does not to advertise the product.

Himalaya Herbals Aloe Vera Face Wash - A Review



As you can see in the pic, the tube is more than half empty. I've been using it so much and I totally love it. It claims that it cools and soften dry skin, but being a combination, super sensitive skin, my skin too seems to love this facewash.
Its a light, pista green colored creme consistency. I comes in a transparent tube with a flip cap. It has Aloe Vera & Cucumber with natural Vitamin E. When I apply it, it instantly gives a cooling effect like - reason, presence of Menthol!!! 
Guess what, if you've been following me on my facebook page for My Travelogue, other blog, you might know, I recently rode Pondy to Chennai. With pillion, this was the first time, and yeah, wearing half sleeves. I did apply a 50 SPF sunscreen, inspite of it, over few hours, skin does get affected. That too the summer here, is in its hottest time now. By the time, I reached home, my skin was almost burning. Guess what, I used this facewash, not only on face, but also forearms & feet. The cooling effect that it has is really good. Its almost menthol-ish!!!
It almost does not lather at all. But I don't complain. Its really good on my skin. I feel the dirt off the skin, though there's no lather!!!
