Himalaya New Protein Hair Cream

I love my hair and I take extra care to maintain its shiny and healthy condition. I color my hair with heena once every six months. I wash my hair every alternate day and oil them once every week. I have dry scalp so I have been advised to deep condition my hair too.


So when I got Himalaya Protein Hair Cream for review purposes, I was excited to test all its claims -

Product: Himalaya Protein Hair Cream 
Quantity: 175ml
Price:100 Rupees


Action: 

Nourishes your hair with Natural Proteins derived from ingredients like Wheatgerm and Chickpea. Indian Gooseberry and Thistles promote hair growth. Use regularly before and after shampooing for well nourished, soft and shiny hair. It contains Chanaka (Chickpea), which is a rich and natural source of protein that helps in hair growth along with Godhuma (Wheatgerm), which is also a good source of protein and vitamin E. Amalaki (Indian Gooseberry), acts as an anti-oxidant and hair growth promoter while Bhringaraja (Thistles) strengthens hair root and prevents hair fall. Protein hair cream nourishes hair root and shaft.

Indications:
Dry and lifeless hair and hair fall. 

Ingredients Include:
  • Cicer arietinum (Bengal Gram, Chanaka)
  • Triticum sativum (Common Wheat, Godhuma)
  • Emblica officinalis (Indian Gooseberry, Amalaki)
  • Eclipta prostrata (Thistles, Bhringaraja)
Directions:
Use daily before and after hair wash.Massage gently on scalp and hair leaving it before an hour before shampooing.Apply to damp hair after every wash for all day extra nourished and stronger hair.


My Take On The Product:
I used this product for quite some time now and I am in a love- hate relationship with it.
I love the consistency of this product - it is thick and non sticky.
I apply this product a night before shampooing my hair the next morning and it works great - it makes my hair soft and shiny.
It is very cheap compared to other hair masks and creams available in the market - Dis is great.
I dont have any hair fall problem so i cant really comment on that.
The product smells like a mild herbal product which is good. The scent is not over-powering.
One thing I didnt not like about the product is that it left my hair oily and sticky when I tried applying this cream after shampooing my hair. So cant use this as a leave-in conditioner.
It has parabens as their inactive ingredients. 

Love it Or Chuck it ? 
Definitely worth a try. Comes dirt cheap!! 

Please note: This product was sent by the company's PR for consideration.

  1. When I was in Chennai the water was very hard on my hair and I used to use this every other day. Unlike oil it doesnt make your hair super sticky na. Maybe, I'll pick one up when I go home.
