DIY- Fenugreek seeds- Hair and skin my experiments - Hairfall control?Yay or Nay>

Hi All,

As warned earlier a lot of posts will be coming up regarding hair care and my misadventures with household items and DIY's. So, here comes the first one.

I read a lot of good stuff about fenugreek doing wonders on hair so I thought to give it a shot.I took a bowl of fenugreek seeds and let it soak overnight. To my surprise in the morning it had expanded to about 4 times and I was in impression it will be hardly twice as much after soaking, so please take care of quantity while soaking. A handful(2-3 spoons) should be good for first time usage.

I took the seeds in a mixer jar and tried to blend them ,I added milk as I thought it might add more benefit to my hair and as much as you keep blending the fenugreek will keep demanding more milk. So you would need atleast 3 times as much milk to blend it. Still I was not able to achieve it in a complete paste ,it was a bit grainy.

Once blended I applied it to my hair and left it for half an hour after which I shampooed and washed my hair. So the results on my hair were:

1) It did nothing to my hair
2) After it dries up, it is quite difficult to remove from your hair
3) The hair felt a bit shiny after drying up
4) No change in hairfall

I was still left with a lot of fenugreek paste as I messed up with the quantity soaked :)
So I added honey to that and applied it as a face mask on my face. I left it for about 20 minutes and then washed my face with a facewash. Currently I am using Cetaphil cleanser as a face wash.

The results on my skin were:

1) To my surprise it made my skin brighter and cleaner
2) There was significant reduction in the blackspots I got after childbirth.

 So I used this mask for about a week as I was left with a lot! be wary of the quantity when you soak as it expands a lot! I know I am repeating myself but just don't want anyone else to make the same mistake I did.

My final verdict was:

1) For hair fenugreek wasn't a magic potion I was looking for my hair
2)For skin it definitely works like a charm.

I have planned more experiments with fenugreek for face and would be posting my experiences after few usages.

PS: These are my own views regarding the DIY I tried

Soul Tree - True Brick shade lipstick review

Though I am a lip gloss fan instead of lipsticks,I have got few of them which I would like to review. This month I got the soul tree lipstick in true brick shade as part of my October fab  bag.I really liked the shade as its quite natural and seems a bit orangish brown.

The lipstick was packed very nicely and I just loved the fact that it is organic and an ayurvedic product. It claims to consist of almond oil and essence of rose. It seems to be true as the lipstick is quite moisturizing and smells good. The lipstick also lists that it has organic ghee for healing,moisturizing and lightening dark lips and honey for giving a natural pink glow. It is a certified natural product by BDIH. Look how cutely it is packed.

The lipstick really suits me and is looking quite natural and beautiful. I even got a compliment!
Check out how it looks on application. It isn't that dark even on applying 2 strokes. 

The only drawback of the lipstick would be it's staying power. It doesn't stays as …

Fran Wilson Moodmatcher lipstick - Pink review

Hey dear ladies! I know it's been a while since I posted something but Mumbai to Hyderabad shift had kept me busy all along. We finally got a good place to stay and settled in now. Got the internet connection this Monday :) Loving the weather in Hyderabad,Mumbai was so hot!!! Here it is really pleasant currently and gets cold at night a bit.

Coming back to the review, I am going to provide my feedback regarding the moodmatcher lipstick in Pink shade I got in my august fab bag. For starters let me tell you,it is awesome! I loved the shade, the staying power and it suits my skin tone really nicely.

This lipstick is called moodmatcher because it claims to change color with your mood though I didn't notice anything like that. Also, it comes in bizarre shades such as green,black,blue,orange,yellow. But on application they turn to different shades of pink,some light,some dark.

The lipstick I got wasn't in any of those shades but pink itself. :)Look at the beautiful lipstick:

Ital Veloce Valvatina fragrance review

Hey dear ladies! I was packing for our one day trip to Lonavala and I wanted to pack a good perfume and this wonderful fragrance sample I got from Fab bag in August came handy. The perfume is from Ital Veloce in Valvatina fragrance.

I got a cute little 12 ml fragrance which will last me few months for travelling and random use. It looks pink and the fragrance is really girly and awesome. The fragrance is neither too mild nor too strong and it lasts for a very good time. One day I applied it in morning while leaving for office but when at night I met hubby he complimented me for smelling so good.

Look how cute the tiny little wonder looks:

I am really enjoying this fragrance,it is flowery and fresh.
Cost: The regular size bottle of this perfume is 210 ml and costs Rs 499
Pros:  Smells really good Good fragrance power, lasts long Affordable
Cons: Couldn't think of any
Rating: 4/5
Would I buy it again: No, it is not as good as one of the itra I use which I prefer to be my signature fragrance.
