• Total Repair 5 Repairing Masque. Price: Rs. 325 for 200ml

I have tried all 3 products from this range.

Review - Shampoo

Smells nice. Does leave the hair soft and cleans and lathers well. It also was able to remove all traces of coconut / hair oil in one wash itself leaving my hair squeaky clean. I naturally suffer from quite a bit of hairfall, so I don't think this stopped it in any way, but it also didn't make it worse. I liked this one.

Review - Conditioner

I have very fine hair, and while this did make the hair smooth it also weighed it down making my hair appear limp.

Review - Masque

This I loved the most. This made my hair very smooth, soft and shiny as well but did not weigh it down at all. Smells nice too :)

I liked the masque most, followed by the shampoo. Conditioner I did not like at all. I generally use the shampoo as my first wash for the hair & follow it up with L'oreal Force Vector. I use the masque once in two weeks, I just wash my hair once, and then apply the masque for 15-20 mins. (I make a pony tail at the base of my neck and apply this only to hair that falls below the pony tail, that prevents conditioner from getting into the scalp and making it oily). Also the range is quite economical, prices are decent.

But I will re-purchase only the shampoo from this range again as I want to try the Force Vector (FV) masque next as the FV shampoo quite suits my hair.


  1. Few month back I was using Dove Masque which was quite good too and i guess of same range..will try this one too...

  2. hi..i started using the shampoo n conditioner 2 mnths bak n it worked well for me .. i had this serious prob of hair fall previously n this product helped in reducing it to a gr8 extent so i luv the shampoo n conditioner both.. didnt try the masque instead using the Himalaya herbals ones..thts gud tooo.. :)

    1. Yea, I found this to be pretty decent :)

  3. I've never used a hair mask before. After reading your review, I'm really intrigued now.

    thanks for stopping by my blog.

  4. 我是台灣人,很愛你們的,希望你們也會愛我!
    Hello! My name is 酒店經紀 called, from Taiwan, has no intention to see your homepage, thought the article writes is very good!

  5. I hav never used a hair masque b4..sound interesting!!

    1. It is quite nice if you have dry hair :)

  6. I'm tempted to give the masque a try :)

  7. Hey have you tried Loreal smooth intense leave-in serum?

    1. Nope ya, not tried that :).. Have you?

  8. I am always tempted by loreal hair products, they never disappoint! have you tried their re-nutrition range yet?

  9. ^ hey GG, does the loreal smooth intense serum help with frizziness?

  10. Im surprised everyone here has something nice to say about this product. It didnt work for me though :( I have naturally wavy, slightly frizzy hair and the shampoo and conditioner made it worse. I normally use dove dry therapy and that works fine for me so I'm going back to that! Btw does anyone know of a good heat protection serum available in india and I mean the kind that works with straighteners n irons? And an anti-frizz serum that doesnt weigh down hair giving that ugly oily feel?

    1. Awww, too bad this didn't work for you, it seems to be worked quite well for me :)

  11. Hey guys

    I have been using the Loreal Total Repair Five Shampoo and Conditioner for over a yr now and its suiting my hair really well. The conditioner however has lost its previous effect. So I have discontinued it very recently.

    I was always tempted to try the masque, but dint really dare to try as was a bit apprehensive. Bow after reading your views, m definitely going to buy one. :) :)

    Thanks a lot.


  12. I have the masque and was thinking of trying it...shall do so now :)

Reetha, Amla & Shikakai Home Made Shampoo - Weekend Experiment

Good Morning Lovelies, I hope your weekend was fun. Mines was, well, ho-hum, but anyways, we are not talking about that here (let’s save that cribbing for twitter).
I have been suffering from quite a bit of hair fall since some time. I have tried changing products to using intensive conditioning and the works. It stops the hair fall for while, but then it rears its ugly head again.
So on lark, & for lack of better things to do, my best friend & I decided to make some Reetha – Amla – Shikakai shampoo at home. This century old ayurvedic herbal concoction is reputed to not only strengthen hair, but also darken it and stop hair fall.
I got the 3 biggies from a local kirana store. All 3 are priced at 15 Rs for 100gms.

How to: Soak 5 pieces of Shikakai, 4 balls of Reetha  (Soapnut) & handful of Amla (Indian Gooseberry)  in about 500 ml of water overnight. In the morning, heat the mixture on gas till it just starts to boil. Let it cool, when lukewarm mash all the amla, reetha and…

Skin Care Myth: Sunscreen will stop you from Tanning

Image via Wikipedia I know I did a recent article on skin care myths (read it here), but I don't know how I forgot to mention this particular myth. In any case I think this warranted a post on its own.

Myth: If I use a suncreen regularly and religiously, I will not tan. 

Fact: This is a very simplistic statement. But before I bust this myth, kindly bear through a science lecture. This is to bring all readers of all backgrounds on the same knowledge level.

Lets define sunscreen (from Wikipedia):Sunscreen (also commonly known as sunblock or sun cream) is a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects "some" of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin exposed to sunlight and thus helps protect against sunburn. Sunscreen helps protect only against direct DNA damage as it cannot dissipate UV as harmless heat.

The SPF of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen — the higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen …

I made "Washed Ghee" at home and it turned out great!

Yesterday I posted about the importance of fat in our diet. While doing research for the same I came across the recipe for "Washed Ghee" or Shata Dhaut Ghrita (100 times washed ghee).

After I read about this miracle at home cream, it was inevitable that I would try to create this cream myself. All I needed apparently was some cow ghee & water.

So I made it last evening. And here is how it went.

For those readers who haven't read the earlier post: Hundred times washed ghee is prepared from organic cow milk ghee by washing it in purified water, repeatedly, 100 times in a copper vessel, using a specific prescribed method while chanting some mantras

This procedure transforms the ghee into a soft, cooling, nourishing, silky unguent that is used as a traditional moisturizer and anti wrinkle skin cream. It produces radiant and glowing skin, especially for people with easily inflamed skin. It can be used as a daily face and body moisturizer or for facial massage. Apply it for…
