Hello you awesome people!
I’ve wrote about hair fall and my long time suffering with constant hair loss before, you can read about that here actually. Since that blog post, I’ve been doing everything I can to stop my hair from falling out and leaving me completely hairess! *NEVER!* And the worst part is, its all due to stress and health issues.
Some of the things I’m doing to take extra good care of my hair is taking extra supplements, eating SUPER healthy (lots of Iron and Zinc), drinking tons of water, sleeping well and keeping my hair styling to a bare minimum. Super minimum actually, since only comb my hair once a day, and even then its finger combing, I don’t heat style it ever, no blow drying, no perming, colouring, or straightening whatsoever, plus I’m super gentle with my hair, no tugging, pulling, or tight ponytails. I even cut my hair shorter to minimize them hair losses. A lot of my girlfriends have asked me why I never do anything fun with my hair, and this is why.
I guess the butterflies at The Butterfly Project must have heard my prayers, because out of the blue I got an email from them telling me I had a hair pampering session with Himalaya Herbal Healthcare! I made my way to Rupini’s Beauty Spa at Bangsar last week, and only 12 butterflies were invited for this event, so I was very lucky to have been invited! #EXCLUSIVE
I found the place quite easily since the Himalaya banner was awaiting me!
The Himalaya’s Herbal Healthcare Anti Hair Fall event was to introduce their range of anti hair fall products, while giving us ladies a hair pampering session with the rest of the Himalaya products! When I got there, I first met with Shireen Chrishanthi, the event organizer and was given a brainteaser/crossword puzzle about the Himalaya Anti Hair Fall range. I was half awake only, so my brain wasn’t working very well in completing the crossword, but the yummy cold soya bean she offered certainly perked me up! Got to know the products a little better after the crossword puzzle 😉
After the crossword, we were to go for our hair consultation with the specialist, Fatimah, but since the consultant already had her hands full, I had a nice chat with Shireen, and managed to take loads of pictures!
These are the products of the day!
All Himalaya products contain no Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and(SLES) Sodium Laureth Sulfate. These two chemicals are super bad for your hair ladies! Now I’m actually quite familiar with Himalaya’s products since I use their Protein Shampoo, the Amla one and also my half absolutely loves their products as well. We love the fact that their products are herbal and ayurvedic !
For the Anti Hair Fall range, the Anti Hair Fall Shampoo which contains Butea Frondosa, Eclipta, and Pongamia Pinnata functions to nourish the root, strengthen and activate hair growth. The Anti Hair Fall Cream contains Licorice and Eclipta which stimulates hair growth and also contains Chickpea and Amla, which function as a natural source of protein and vitamin to feed your hair.
These are some pictures of Rupini’s all decked out in orange and green, synonymous with Himalaya official colours. And that red bagpack is mine, I was going home to my parents place right after the event, hence the large backpack!
These are some of the services and promotions that Rupini’s are offering right now. Diwali promotion going on yall!
Some of their products!
Rupini’s had a nice calm environment, perfect for a nice facial or a mani pedi. While I was taking pictures, got called for my hair consultation!
Fatimah is a really sweet, tiny lil thing, and she explained about hair fall, and what causes it, and what I can do to fix it. She was using this hair scanning device, which I’ve actually used before, a long time ago, when I got my hair checked at Yun Nam Hair care, so I kind of already knew what was going to happen and what I was going to see on the computer.
As you can see my hair on the computer screen, I have pretty okay hair, just that I don’t have much of it. LOL. Apparently healthy hair is when you have at least 3 hair strands in one hair follicle. In my case, I have about two to three, but my enlarged hair follicles causes my hair to fall out easily. *insert sad sigh here*
Shireen coming to look at my hair and tease me. hahaha
Next up, the hair pampering session! We had a quick 10-15 min head massage from the Rupini’s staff, mine was Sumi. It felt like 5 minutes though, the massage was so good! She used the Himalaya Revitalizing Hair Oil, and I must tell you, the oil smells so good! It was lightweight oil containing Indian Gooseberry, Neem, Fenugreek and Bael Tree Fruit. I must go get this oil the next time I go shopping!
After applying the oil and massaging my scalp, I got my hair washed as well with the Himalaya Anti-Hair Fall Shampoo and after washing, she applied the leave in Himalaya Anti-Hair Fall Cream, before blow drying my hair. It didnt take long to finish doing my hair since I have less hair, but some butterflies who came in with thick, long hair and had to be blow dried by two people. LOL
After the Hair pampering, I had some time to take pics! I had to, my hair looked so freaking good!
Like an angel coming to banish my hunger, Shireen came bringing us kuih from Dusun! I took the orange one, since thats my favourite!
While happily munching on the snacks, Shireen introduced the Himalaya Anti Hair Fall Range to us in more detail and also introduced the hair style expert Justin from the Shear Perfection Hair Salon who talked to us about the current hair fashion trends, and what types of hairstyles will suit each girl.
Justin from Shear Perfection!
And this is me getting my hair style analysed. Apparently I have a very simple hair do, and Justin suggested me to get bangs, but I’ve had bangs for the past three years, and they’re annoying for daily maintanence, so I really don’t want bangs anymore. But good advice nevertheless =D
And that basically concludes the event! And more snap shots from the day!
