Product Review: Sunsilk Perfect Straight

I have been blessed with striaght silky hair. I keep them at shoulder length for easy management. I prefer to let them loose. My bad hair days are often a result of my oily scalp. I have to tie them up and that is when they come to have a wavy impression that would stay if I do not use an optimum product.

The purple bottles that arrived by courier looked and smelt beautiful so full marks to the packaging guys for it. Before writing ths revew I used the shampoo and the conditioner twice, so let me go wash by wash:

First Wash: When I first used the shampoo, my scalp had begun to get slightly oily. I used the shampoo as I would use any other. I let the shampoo stay on for a couple of minutes before rinsing it off with luke warn water.

Then squeesing out the water from the tips I applied the conditoner and let it stay for just a minute as the instruction on the pack advised. Again I washed it off with luke warm water.

When my hair had begun to dry I did not notice anything different. There were definitely less tangles than would have been had I simply used the shampoo and not the conditoner. The good thing also was that there was no frizz that often happens when teh shampoo is not balanced and actually manages to dry out hair leaving the feeling undernourished.

Second Wash: The second wash came two days later. there was no oily scalp this time. I just needed a wash before stepping out for a party. I used it similarly as before, leaving the conditioner wee bit more than the suggested 1 minute.

Conclusion: I believe that the shampoo helps to sort out frizzy issues to a certain extent and I can not vouch if it is the best rescue for heavily frizzy and/ or curly hair. As far as my own experience is concerned, I like the packaging, the smell and the mildness of the shampoo. The conditioner works well too.



wow :-) really very interesting post :-) keep updating your blog ;-)

Reusable cotton pads: My first experience

I had been trying to bring changes for a sustainable living for a while now and using reusable cotton pads for Aunt Flo's monthly visits was an idea that appealed massively to my senses. After searching here and there I found a Kolkata based manufacturer- Shomota- who were also involving women from underprivileged background in manufacturing these pads as well as sharing the profit from sales to make these pads available to girls and women in interiors of West Bengal. BONUS point- I have also come to realise that sustainability is more efficient and worthwhile if you choose local. Also the fact that we are dumping non biodegradable waste on the planet and that is equal to some sort of violence in my head and I have been brought up on the beliefs laid by the Arya Samaj movement, I needed a better option than the mass marketed sanitary pads. I looked and examined a few option that I realised were available to me before making up my mind on the reusable cloth pad.

Why I chose cloth p…

Of new resolutions and newer authors

The year has started on the right note. I have already read two authors whom I had not read before falling hard for the one being hailed as Japanese Steig Larrson- Keigo Hagashino.
That is what got me thinking about new year resolutions  (I know we are done with the first quarter) which I haven't made in years. So here is a list of authors that I would like to sample this year.
1. Manu Joseph
2. Pico Iyer
3. Anthony Horowitz
4. Margret Atwood
5. Toni Morrison
6. Chimamanda Adichie
7. Jo Nesbo
8. Neil Gaiman
9. Terry Pratchett 10. Alice Munro
But I also realise the futility of making a list like this as there are just so many authors, poets, writers and just so many works coming to fore everyday. A book group might help, you would think but let me tell you that it complicates things further. New recommendations, fantastic and not so fantastic reviews, pictures, blog posts and what not really makes matter well,complicated.
All said and done, it is but human to try and so I shall …

The Happiness Connection

Suicides by two hugely popular public figures- Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain- within three days of each other.

One a fashion designer and business woman par excellence and another a famous cook, TV personality.

There have been many others before them. Though I knew just a thing or two about them the news about Robin William's suicide was heartbreaking for me. I remember thinking how could someone who laughed so much and made people laugh, do that. While there is so much being written in the social media about mental health in light of these two suicides I was stuck by a particular post in part on Ariana Huffington's Instagram feed. It is a Repost of a tweet by editor Elaine Welteroth and says:

..... And in your death we are reminded once again that there is simply no correlation between happiness and success.

How true is that! We have no idea about what makes us happy. It is easy to confuse happiness with material things, isn't it? Getting a Kate Spade bag any day would…
