Nioxin's Skin Care for your Hair

I had a privilege to attend to attend the first Blogadda bloggers meet for #NioxinNowInIndia hair care products. It was on Saturday noon at BodyCraft Spa and Salon, Koramangala. I was at Bodycraft, for the first time, at 11.40 AM and got a chance to meet Harish Krishnan and Ankita Baneerjee from Blogadda.

With Bloggers before the event

We were given a hearty welcome by Spa which was followed by a Salon tour which had a separate compartment for Nioxin products. As soon as you enter, you would feel relaxed and stress free.

Daisy took us, the twelve bloggers, into a room where all the bloggers introduced themselves and the event kicked off explaining what Nioxin is all about. Daisy explained, Nioxin was found in the US by Eva Graham, who experience hair thinning post child birth. Eva searched many products in the stores for a product that would reduce the hair fall but she was disappointed to see that most products were for men and could not find a single product which treated hair like skin. Eva went on to establish the most successful hair care brand in the US, Nioxin.

Daisy from Wella

Daisy went on to explain, the product and the types of thinning. Nioxin, provides the skin care to hair. Just the way, we cleanse, apply toner and the moisturizer. Nioxin follows the same step. There are 6 type of treatment based on the type of hair fall. Mine was 5.

After the presentation, it was time for hair consultation which required us to answer question and a hand held device, (forgot the device name) was used to show us the condition of the scalp.

The first step was application of Nioxin Scalp Renew and massage the scalp and then wait for ten minutes. The ScalpRenew Dermabrasion Treatment is available only at the Salons and not sold separately.
Second step was to cleanse the hair and the third step was applying Revitalizer, in other words, conditioner. A neat and thorough hair wash and then the Scalp Treatment was applied to the scalp. This was followed by blow drying. My wavy knee length hair was so smooth, silky and light like a bird's feather.

The event concluded by providing the Nioxin Hair System Kit which includes
1. Cleanser - 150 ml
2. Scalp Revitalizer
3. Scalp Treatment.

I will be using these and shall post my review soon.

The cost of Nioxin hair treatment at Bodycraft, for long hair is Rs 4,000. But its worth the price.

This is my make over after sitting for long hours at the spa. I had always feared to leave my hair without braiding. But my hair felt soooo good. :)

Super mom

Mothers are special gifts God has created. They have great patience and ability to make their children happy at the risk of making any sacrifice. Right from the time I was in her womb and till now, she has been a great mentor, a friend and a guide. I, sometimes, wonder how much patience she has to tolerate somethings. How much stress she handles with ease, with a smile on her face; without letting any of family members down.

While I was at school and college, she would help me with my homework, make sure I was well prepared for the exams and did not forget to take hall ticket along, pens were filled with ink, I arrive the exam hall without any tension, eat & sleep well the day before the exam. She would even skip going to family functions and stop watching TV, since it would disturb me. If I stayed awake for long time, she would accompany me so that I don't get bored studying alone. She would console me if I did not do the exam well. She prayed to the almighty that I score well in my exams and always wanted to see her daughter happy.

As I completed my engineering and begun to work, she would ensure, I eat regularly on time, never skip the food due to work.
She would call me at regular intervals to ensure that I am not overloaded with work nor worry too much about it.

In 2011, it was the first time I lived away from my family, 5,585 miles down under, in a continent country, she would constantly worry if I was safe, if I had adjusted to the new lifestyle, if I was fit and healthy in such harsh climate where the temperature would drop to 1 degree. She would listen to me with patience while I spoke to her for long hours while I described how clean the city was and my excitement seeing the trams, which would run for free, without having to buy any ticket.

She has been a pillar of strength, when father passed away. Though, it is hard to overcome the sadness and emotions losing a life partner to whom you've been bonded for past forty four years.

Mom, you have always been my idol and bestie. Being a woman, we face hardships in life and patience is most important. I am confident, I would overcome the hurdles of any size when you're with me.

I’m blogging about why my mother needs to de-stress with a Parachute Advansed Aromatherapy Oil massage for the #StressFreeMom activity at BlogAdda.

Spatika Mala :: Quartz crystals

Spatika Mala is a necklace made of the transparent quartz consisting of 108+1 quartz. Spatika Mala has a great importance to Hindus especially while offering prayers to the favorite deities. The beads are counted one by one and prayer is chanted until you complete counting all the beads. Spatika Mala is similar to rosaries used by Christian s while praying.

The Mala which I have been using past 8 years and was gifted by my beloved father. I use it daily while chanting mantras and wear it across my neck.

Spatika Mala is mainly relates to spirituality and used during meditation. When you touch the Spatika mala , it is very cold and when worn across the neck, it is said to absorb body heat and make the person cool, reduces anger, keeps the blood pressure under control, increases concentration makes the mind calm.
