Fall Control Protein Hair Pack: All Natural DIY

So, I told you guys about my new venture or challenge for hair fall control and growth, today I am going to share a very simple yet effective hair pack that you can treat your hair with to deal with hair fall problem. Without much ado, let's know about it.

Things You Will Need:

Curry Leaves- 20 to 30 leaves.
Methi Leaves- 20 to 30 leaves.
Egg- 1 whole.
Curd or milk- 2 tablespoons (optional).

Method: Wash and clean the leaves together and put it in blender for 5 minutes. Now, add in the egg in the blender and blend again for 2 minutes. Take out the paste and pour in a clean mixing bowl. Now, if you are happy with the consistency, you do not need to add curd or milk. But, I always prefer using curd for my hair, I will add 2 tablespoons of it anyway and mix it really well. Now, it is ready to apply on the hair.

Process: Apply firstly on the scalp and then start coating the manes to the tip. Once covered whole head and hair, leave it for no less than 1 hour. After 1 or 2 hour, wash it throughly with plain water and then use a mild or herbal shampoo. You may need to wash it 2-3 times with shampoo as the particles of the pack might stick in your hair.

Benefits : Curry and methi leaves are highly helpful in controlling hair fall. They helps in removing dandruff also. The egg in the mixture will give your shaft a nice shine, volume and health to it. Curd is used for nourishment and conditioning of your hair. So, this pack is a power pack that will boost your hair to look healthy, voluminous and shiny instantly.

I treat my hair with this hair pack at least twice every month (or I try to!). It definitely reduces hair fall and keeps the shaft healthy in long terms. This pack is suitable for every hair type, as if you have dry hair, the curd will give nourishment, if you have oily scalp, the egg will take care of that balancing fact. The leaves will help in restoring the hair follicles as well as controlling the hair fall.

So, do try it and let me know your experience with it.

My Experience with BAREVER Natural Hair Inhibitor:

I have used this product a few times from last month and I feel it is safe and fair to review it for you guys. Now let's see how it has worked for me.

Packaging: I loved the pump dispenser, and not only that, it has a lock system in the pump. You need to move the pump clockwise and anti-clockwise in order to open and close it which is amazing. It is ofcourse hygienic and useful packaging with no risk of wastage whatsoever.

Smell: The smell is definitely a turn off! It smells something chemical or yucky, its very strong and difficult to bear!

Texture: It is a cream in texture and quite rich cream actually. A little amount gets spread on the skin very easily. The oily or rich creamy texture takes a bit time to get absorbed completely as it leaves a bit greasiness on the skin which can be ignored especially in the winter.

My Take: First of all, as I said I have already used it a few times and by that you can understand how much I have loved it. Everytime I remove the unwanted hair from my hands and legs I use it. Altough my messy and busy life, also my forgetfulness did not let me use it twice a day for 5 days, but I have used it daily atleast for 1 week after each session. And, the result is AMAZING!! Yes, it slows down the growth very effectively and the hair growing now is very thin and fragile (hardly noticeable). My skin stays smooth and hair free for the longest time and to be exact, hair starts to grow after 14-15 days, that too when I stopped using the cream after 6-7 days.

Though, it is said that it can be used in sensitive areas like bikini line, face or underarms. I had courage to try it on underarms only (apart from hands and legs), but it did not work that effectively. The hair started growing normally within 1-2 days even while using the cream. As I have hyper-sensitive skin, I did not dare to use it in any other place.

Overall, I am pretty impressed with this product (If God gives me the power to bear the smell!), and I am going to continue using it.

The Good Points:

  1. Slows down hair growth.
  2. Very much effective.
  3. Keeps skin smooth and soft for longer period.
  4. Natural product.
  5. Does not damage or break out skin.
  6. Safe to use on body.
  7. Does what it claims.
  8. No harsh chemicals.

The Not-so-good Points:

  1. Weird smell.
  2. Might not work on underarm areas.
  3. Bit pricey, but hey it is very effective!

My Rating: 4/5.

My Recommendation: I would definitely recommend this for everyone, and for every skin type. In spite of having sensitive skin, this product did suit me well and worked like a charm on my hands and legs. This will keep your hair removal sessions as far as possible and help you get smoother, hair-free skin for longest time. Try it and you will know what I am talking about!
