Not long ago I admitted my sins towards my own hair. Blessed with a naturally straight, fine flat hair I never had to take much care of my hair. The only hair care my patience can afford is shampooing and conditioning. If you live in Kolkata you might be aware of our prolonged monsoon this year which resulted in a prolonged hair fall problem. Starting from June or July I have been losing amounts of hair that gives me panic attacks every time I brush my hair.

Meanwhile, during this really bad weather, I received the hair fall kit from Lass Naturals consisting Hair Oil, Shampoo, and Conditioner. Lass became one of my favourite herbal brands after my boy friend and I tried their deodorants for male and female. Usually I don’t take chances with hair products, but this time I did, rather blindly I must say.

My Experience:

My love for products free from parabens, SLS and chemicals are no secret. And looking through the ingredient list, one has to be more than just impressed. Ingredients like Bramhi, Bhringrajm, Amla, Methi and Jatamansi are luxuries that my hair and scalp would have never dreamt of has it not been for this precious oil. If you are an Indian, chances are you are aware of the goodness that every single of the ingredients provide.

The oil comes in a sturdy white bottle with a screw cap and is runnier than any regular hair oil. If you are used to non sticky hair oils, I should remind you that this is not some regular hair oil, it’s a hair oil which is actually made out of rare herbs. Think of it more like ancient times when hair oils were just invented by us genius Indians.

Because my hair is naturally silky and straight, it’s hard to tell how well it worked on me. But trust me, I don’t care the effect is visible or not, if I can get the goodness of all those ingredients without having to go through the effort of applying them as hair masque, I am impressed.

My Experience:

I just used it once. The smell was a little too overpowering for me but going through the ingredient list I know why. These ancient herbs are known for their bitter taste (and possibly smell) and imagine all these mixed up. The only time I used it, I noticed that my hair fall reduced dramatically. There was no sign of hair strands. But my normal scalp and hair dried out, and it had to be the only day that I lived with frizzy hair. I did apply the conditioner, but it didn’t seem to help. On the brighter side, my hair looked voluminous, but the frizziness was just too much for me and I gave it to my boyfriend who suffers from oily scalp. He liked it better than I did and the shampoo has given his hair a noticeable volume.

My Experience:

This has to be my favourite from the range. The conditioner comes in a sturdy white bottle with a flip cap and the consistency is a bit thicker than any other conditioner I have ever used. The fragrance is not as overpowering as the shampoo but the ingredient list is again a very impressive one. I have been using this conditioner for over a month now and my hair seems healthier than it has ever been. I am hooked, honestly speaking. I don’t think I can get back to a regular conditioner ever.
