Hmmm…when I read about the “challenge” I was intrigued. I mean we all want long, healthy Rapunzel like hair? And if there is a way to get those lovely tresses, who wouldn’t want to be a part of it? But how does one do that? I mean some are just naturally blessed with long luscious hair while others like me have done everything short of pulling their hair to make them grow. However, MABH Fast Growth Hair Oil has helped tremendously with my hair growth. For those of you, who are interested in my first impressions of the hair oil, please refer to my review here.
Coming to the challenge, Lancy announced it last month and you can read all about it here . The whole idea behind the challenge is to follow a dedicated hair care regime, with the MABH Fast Growth Hair Oil at the centre of it, so as to give your hair the best that you can and help them grow faster. Since a number of bloggers are taking part in it, it becomes an online community where you help and motivate each other with advice and disciplined regimes.
I received a bottle of the oil from Lancy as a part of the challenge. Unlike my 1st bottle, not only is the new bottle sturdier, even the packing is much better- a nicely taped wooden box that leaves no scope for breakage or spillage.
CURRENT HAIR ISSUES-
As I have mentioned above, I’ve been using this oil since February- March and benefitted a lot in terms of hair growth. However, my son met with an accident in May, which not only threw all hair care regimes off track but also caused tremendous stress. Coupled with the insanely hot Indian summers I battled with all kinds of woes – from hair fall to dryness to lot of breakouts on my face. Now that he’s finally and visibly recovering I have to get my hair care regime, among other things, back on track.
Coming to my hair type- it’s wavy, dry, fine (with some greys) and thankfully plenty of body and bounce. Ever since I moved to using natural things- oil, hair packs, colour etc, my hair have been less prone to any kind of hair trouble- breakage, dandruff and dryness. Growth however has not been very good or healthy until I started using MABH Fast Growth Hair Oil. While my hair would grow, but they would start looking very thin and unhealthy. And honestly, long but unhealthy hair look awful- like a “gadhe ki poonch”( donkey’s tail). So while I would love to have long hair, but would place equal emphasis on healthy hair.
If there is one good thing anyone can do for his or her hair, it has to be regular oiling. After years of all kinds of hair spas and treatments, regular oil massage is something that I swear by. Anything else that one may do for the hair- hair pack, henna etc- is a bonus. I had an unwritten rule of oiling my hair before every wash and was able to stick to this rule almost 95% of the times until the past few months. This is what I’m gradually getting back to. Henna – Indigo to cover greys ( Read here and here about it) or LUSH henna ( read here) for conditioning is another thing that I use regularly and hope to continue with at least till November end before the harsh North Indian winter sets in. While I do try to use as many natural products as possible, I love to indulge myself with luxurious shampoos. Forest Essentials (obnoxiously expensive) and LUSH are my favourites though LUSH shampoos have SLS.
So that’s it for now folks. I’ll be doing another post on the “challenge” after a month and shall update you about what all I incorporated in my hair care regime and how my hair is behaving. Till then enjoy the festivals but be kind to your tummies!!
