Khadi Herbal SLS & Paraben Free – Amla & Bhringraj Shampoo,Green Tea & Aloevera Conditioner

Hi guys, this is going to be a quick post about my experience with Khadi Herbal hair products. This is my first experience with Khadi products, the SLS and paraben free tag is what tempted me to try it. Note that not all Khadi products are 100% herbal, they are loaded with lots of chemicals.

My biggest hair concerns are dry hair and split ends, hair fall is there too but not priority for now. We all know what causes split ends, in my attempt to reduce chemical exposure to hair I picked up Khadi Herbal Amla & Bhringraj Shampoo. It claims ‘The extracts of Amla, Reetha, Bhringraj, Haritaki, Henna and Neem contained in this shampoo makes the hair lustrous, healthy and manageable.‘ And Khadi Herbal Green Tea & Aloevera Hair Conditioner the description for this on website is incomplete, mainly I picked this for dry hair tag.

I’ve been using this pair for one month, conditioner is already over while quarter bottle of shampoo is still left . Khadi Herbal Amla & Bhringraj Shampoo is purple in color and smells like herbs, it leathers well (though there is no SLS, I wonder what other sulphate goes in), small quantity is enough for cleansing. It makes hair too dry, conditioner must follow after shampoo. I do not see any benefit for using this shampoo, especially if you have dry hair; hair doesn’t shine, they are not manageable after shampoo due to dryness, and they sure did not get any healthy.

Khadi Herbal Green Tea & Aloevera Hair Conditioner doesn’t have intense smell, shampoo smell overpowers even after conditioning. A lot of product is required to decently cover hair with conditioner, which is the reason my shampoo is still left while conditioner was over. Even after applying a lot of conditioner the dryness caused by Khadi Herbal Amla & Bhringraj Shampoo doesn’t go. Hair feel dry and frizzy as if no conditioner was used. Maybe cause the shampoo makes hair too dry, the ‘for dry hair’ tag on is conditioner is totally misleading as it doesn’t give hair any moisture back.

The ingredients list is incomplete as one can see on back of bottle only key ingredients are listed. The packaging is another turn down, but if the products would have worked well this has not mattered.

I ordered my products fromΒ  http://www.khadinatural.com, the site has been recently revamped the older version of site even had malware(thanks to my anti-virus). The price is a bit on higher side, and free shipping is only available on orders above Rs. 500. SLS and pareben free hair products are priced at Rs. 210, you can get the same product at cheaper price of Rs. 115 added with SLS and paraben πŸ˜‰

I will not dare to use Khadi Herbal Amla & Bhringraj Shampoo and Green Tea & Aloevera Conditioner ever again and warn anyone with dry hair to stay away from these. Although in my attempt to stay away from chemicals Khadi is the best I can get in India, hence I am going to order Khadi Herbal Henaa Tulsi extra conditioning Shampoo and Khadi Shikakai & honey Hair Conditioner of-course the SLS & Paraben Free versions πŸ˜‰

Have you tried any Khadi products, how is your experience with them? What SLS free products would you recommend for dry hair (available in India).

Here a couple of more products from Khadi, can you guess the names? Watch out for my experience with them in another post!

The beautiful remains of Revlon Powder Blush in Haute Pink

Hello and belated Eid wishes to dear readers. I hope you have not forgotten me, not yet? Oh yes, lets talk about Revlon Powder Blush in Haute Pink!

Two month back Revlon India launched Cheek Boutique which have powder blush and a highlighting palette. Four shades of powder blush are included in this rage; Haute Pink, Classy Coral, Wine not and Naughty Nude. I received Haute Pink last week and this was the reaction:

Thankfully the mirror survived or the whole blush would’ve been ruined, I had to press the powered back into the pan. Now every-time I close it with a *tick* tiny pink particles jump out of pan and set on the see through. But let’s call it a beautiful mess.

The blush is described as silky smooth; no glitters but it shines like silk in light. If you see the picture of unbroken pan no shine will be visible, but since mine was broken the top layer was gone and blush shines in pan too πŸ˜€

 

Revlon-powder-blush-002-haute-pink-3The color is a beautiful pink and goes well on my tanned(forever) skin, no washing out. This is a big advantage as most of the pink shades are difficult for tanned skin. The flush on my cheeks looked very natural and not bold. It is very smooth and applies very sheer, making is more suitable for duskier skin tone. Stayed for 5 hours on my skin (which is always dry).

This was very difficult to picture, if I went out in sun the camera captured all shine and no pink. This was the most decent I could get after clicking some 20 times. I found it flattering on my skin, what do you think?

Haute pink is a gorgeous sheer pink shade which you can own from any Revlon outlet or online store at 550 Rs.

Now to how I found such a beautiful thing.

One day I sent a couple of careless tweets in response to Revlon, and unbelieving I won something. The question was simple in which one had to share blush moments, but if you look at my tweets they were kind of not so good:

I know the salt is the tea was a pretty dumb shot, however the second is actually true and has happened many times. I find meetings boring and always end up on twitter, more than a few times I’ve been stared down by presenter for staring at phone. Conference calls are cool, turn on the mute and go on about the important work, none knows you’re listening or not until there is a direct question for you and you don’t even hear that. Ok I’m stopping the office talk now.

Share with me those moments which made you blush deeply? Sweet, embarrassing, naughty or anything which you still remember.
