Himalaya Protein Hair Cream - Review

It Claims: Nourishes your hair with Natural Proteins derived from ingredients like Wheatgerm and Chickpea. 
Indian Gooseberry and Thistles promote hair growth. 
Use regularly before and after shampooing for well nourished, soft and shiny hair. 
It contains Chanaka (Chickpea), which is a rich and natural source of protein that helps in hair growth along with Godhuma (Wheatgerm) which is also a good source of protein and vitamin E. 
Amalaki (Indian Gooseberry), acts as an anti-oxidant and hair growth promoter while Bhringaraja (Thistles) strengthens hair root and prevents hair fall. Protein hair cream nourishes hair root and shaft.


Dry and lifeless hair and hair fall.

Ingredients Include:

  • Cicer arietinum (Bengal Gram, Chanaka)
  • Triticum sativum (Common Wheat, Godhuma)
  • Emblica officinalis (Indian Gooseberry, Amalaki)
  • Eclipta prostrata (Thistles, Bhringaraja)

Use Directions:

Massage gently on scalp in circular motion. Use regularly. Suitable for all hair types. Safe to use on artificially colored or permed hair. Recommended with Himalaya Protein Shampoo.

Price: Rs. 100 for 175 gm tub

What I liked: 
1. The price is really nice. For 100 bucks you get a tub full of cream that lasts at least 4 months with regular weekly usage

2. The product smells very, very nice.

3. When used with soft water, it makes the hair very soft and so smooth. I generally apply this and leave it overnight. 

4. It is not oily, non-drippy and does not stain clothes.

5. It purportedly contains a lot of good stuff like Chickpea, amla & wheatgerm. 

6. Safe for use on relaxed hair.  

What I didn't like: 
1. I was originally planning to write this review a good 2 months earlier. At that point I was very impressed with this product. Since the last 2 months I have been using this, with hard, bore well water. And unfortunately it doesn't work as well. The product doesn't rinse off, and worst of all reacts with the water to give me dandruff as well causes hair loss.

2. Complete list of ingredients has not been given.  

Would I re-purchase: Earlier I was planning to. The product itself is awesome & works very well with soft water. Enter hard water and it just doesn't suit my hair. I'll be skipping this, until the water situation changes at my place.

  2. sry i wrot it fr liz earle prod! oops!

  3. Tanz..this product didnt worked for me and now i know why .Infact when a product doesn't work i keep it away thinking of testing it again next time but in between i got l'oreal hair mask so i completely ignored it.

  4. @Ginger & Sunaa: Thanks! :D

    @Anks: I had no idea how much water affects the product performance before I used this. I guess Himalaya shd test this out with hard water as well. I'm back to using my Loreal spa mask these days :D

  5. I love Himalaya products and I'm sure it would be good for me, thanks Tanveer<3

  6. Read so many good reviews about this hair cream..prviously I almost ruined my hair using the other styling creams..but this now looks worth a try.

  7. great review i was planning to get one for my self but thanx God i read ur review as we have hard water here in our place

  8. It's all hard water here, so this is a no-no for me then :D

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…
