My ‘Hair Care’ regime usually suffices on Oil-Shampoo-Conditioner ritual. If I feel like extending the ritual, then maybe a leave in hair mask. Although, I always wonder how much of that conditioner actually stays back to nourish my hair? Having a super oily scalp anyways, I take extra precautions while conditioning. But the thickness of those conditioners always leaves my hair heavy and greasy in no time. Bottega Di Lungavita, the Italian skin care brand, have recently introduced an interesting ‘Hair Conditioning Spray Balm’ in the Indian market. Balsamo Spray Conditioner Balm This innovative hair care spray features active ingredients that prevent dehydration, fragility and split ends. It stimulates repair of damaged hair while increasing its volume. Practical and quick to use, this spray conditioner requires no rinsing. Spray lightly onto rebellious and dry hair to aid styling even on days after shampooing. It envelops the hair and restructures it while adding softness and moisture. Directions to Use Spray uniformly onto hair that has been washed and patted dry. Leave on for a few minutes and then comb, without rinsing. My Experience My hair type : Long wavy oily hair. After using this spray for almost 2 weeks now, I can say that it does help detangle long hair. Gives a subtle shine to the texture and promises a super light coat on the tresses. Ideal for hot summer days, this spray balances the moisture during humid days as well. Likes Easy-to-handle plastic spray bottle packaging. Mild fragrance Super light texture Does not stain C.O.D. available on purchase HERE Dislikes Priced at Rs.990/- this win-win product might be questionable (to buy) for the first time users. How I Use It? Post the Shampoo-Conditioner ritual, I crunch my hair dry with a towel and spray the balm all over. Main focus …

The most important thing is to enjoy your life – to be happy – it’s all that matters. –Audrey Hepburn Sitting at work and trying to crack up the mundane life that we all live now, I was just day-dreaming about the days gone by. The days when fun was all that mattered. When we were kids who just liked to have fun and stay HAPPY! Feeling high and nostalgic, I resumed my work..when an email poped up with the subject ‘Dove invites you to play with your hair on 11th May 2014′. The #DOVEPLAY Invite De ja vu? Well, everything about this invite seemed exciting except for the part that it was happening in Mumbai; while I put up in Delhi. With disappointment I replied back to the mail saying : And I told my self “I so wish to have a mini holiday right now.Sigh!” When I got a reply back saying : Was I dreaming or what? One simple wish…. and it was granted? I happily agreed to be a part of this playful meet. At night, I sat down and went through the invite details. One thing that crossed my mind was that this event will be organized in association with Indiblogger. Now Indiblogger meets have always been so much fun. Which is why I was pretty sure that this one is going to be awesome as well. But this event was going to be different. Being a regional meet so far, this one was inviting few female bloggers from other major cities of India as well! The next level of Indiblogger meets eh?
