Sunsilk Hair Fall Solution Shampoo and Conditioner Review


Hair fall is something that causes much heartache to several women across the world. To combat this, Sunsilk provides you a pack of products that are the Hair Fall Solution Shampoo and Conditioner. This has been co-created by Dr. Francesca Fusco, Scalp Care Specialist who is a world leading expert in dermatology and scalp care.

Product Claim

Enriched with Soya Vitamin Complex, it gently cleanses weakened, easily broken hair while reinforcing the tresses from root to tip.

·         Nourishment from root to tip

·         Strengthening every inch of hair

·         Formulation for visibly less hair fall


The shampoo comes in a golden colored bottle with a slim shape. It has an easy to open flip cap and the shampoo comes out quite easily.

The conditioner comes in a tube of the same color as the shampoo and has a flip cap at the bottom.

The smell of the shampoo and conditioner isn’t very strong, and it is hard to actually identify a fragrance.

The shampoo doesn’t lather much, but rinses out well. When we tried, after washing the hair felt softer and nourished. It became a lot easier to detangle, especially at the ends of the hair which has the greatest tendency to become a tangled mess. As a result, there was less breakage and showed less hair on the comb than usual, though we’re not sure about the strengthening of the hair from ‘root to tip’.

If you’re applying oil beforehand, it would take two washes with the shampoo to wash out all the oil, one wouldn’t be enough.


1. Shampoo

·         Price is reasonable

·         Long Shelf Life

·         Rinses out well, not a major factor in product buildup

·         A small quantity will suffice to cover entire scalp and medium length hair

·         Hair feels softer and nourished after wash

2. Conditioner

·         Price is reasonable

·         Long Shelf Life

·         Creamy consistency, coats the hair well

·         Requires only one minute for action

·         Helps in making hair tangle free and hence reduces breakage

·         Hair feels smoother


1. Shampoo

·         Does not lather much

·         Does not wash out oil completely

·         No pleasant fragrance

2. Conditioner

·         Contains parabens

·         Does not have any effect on frizz

·         No pleasant fragrance


Shampoo – 400 ml: 375 rupees.

Conditioner – 180 ml: 190 rupees.

Where to buy

You can buy this shampoo and conditioner from any general store near you as Sunsilk is a very renowned company.


The main claim of the shampoo and conditioner was reduced hair fall. We’d say that it is more of reduced hair breakage. After washing, your hair becomes smoother and easier to comb, which reduces the breakage. We’re not sure if continued usage of the shampoo would cause any effect to actually reduce hair falling from the scalp. Our main concerns are that it doesn’t wash out oil completely and does not combat frizz effectively. However, it would be okay as a mild daily shampoo and conditioner, provided you don’t apply oil beforehand.

Tresemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo Review


Today we are going to review Tresemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo as we have been personally using this great shampoo for over two months. This shampoo is great when you have recently gone through a hair straightening treatment like rebonding or extenso, or even if you have dry and rough hair.


Product Claims: Want hair that’s smoother, straighter and easier to style? Use the shampoo specifically formulated to leave your hair gorgeously sleek and manageable. The Tresemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo and system transforms your hair, making your hair gorgeously sleek with less frizz, smooth and easy to style. Infused with keratin, the shampoo, with lower sulfates, gently cleanses to leave hair clean, shiny and manageable.





Our Experience: Tresemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo is packed in a large red colored shampoo bottle. Since the bottle is very bulky, it is not a very travel friendly packaging. However, this shampoo also comes in other sizes which are easier to travel with.


This shampoo is transparent in color. The consistency is perfect as it is neither very runny nor too thick. It applies easily and lathers nicely. It has an awesome smell that makes one feel very fresh. The shampoo works well to clean hair, even heavily oiled hair. It is also very easy to wash off.


Tresemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo really does what it claims. The hair is definitely very smooth and the frizz is controlled to an extent. I have tried it using without a conditioner and the hair still feels soft and manageable. It will not straighten your hair as such, but the smoothening effect will make the hair look sleek and shiny, and if you have gone through a chemical treatment like rebonding it will leave your hair as straight as ever. However, the shampoo has some shortcomings. It contains a lot of chemicals. It does not give any volume to the hair and might flatten out fine and thin hair. We have also experienced a slight build up after using it continuously for 2 weeks.




·         Makes hair smooth and frizz free.


·         Cleanses hair very well.


·         Gives softness and shine to hair.


·         Hair detangles perfectly.


·         Washes off easily.


·         Smells awesome.


·         Good for unmanageable thick or rough hair.




·         Contains lot of chemicals.


·         Gives no volume to the hair, hence not good for fine hair.


·         Slight build up.


·         No evident straightening of hair.


Price: PKR 475 – 599 for 500 ml.


Where to buy:This great shampoo is easy available at all the local general stores and super marts. Additionally, gives you a discounted price on this shampoo, so you can easily buy from there.


Recommendation: Tresemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo is an awesome shampoo to try if you are not completely satisfied with your current one. Very reasonably priced compared with the quantity, this shampoo smoothens and detangles your hair perfectly.

The perfect shampoo to help boost whites, greys and blondes Platinum Blonde Shampoo


Be a bright blonde with Paul Mitchell’s Platinum Blonde Shampoo. Containing the finest ingredients to help boost and brighten whites, greys and blondes, it will also banish brassiness and restore the luminosity to highlighted hair.


Paul Mitchell’s advanced formula found in Platinum Blonde Shampoo contains cool violet pigments to brighten and enhance blonde, grey or white hair while neutralizing yellow tones, diminishing that brassy blonde effect. Also containing a powerful combination of conditioning agents and extracts that provide ample moisture and intensified shine while mild ingredients cleanse and retain moisture to soften your hair.


It’s a purple-tinted shampoo, especially formulated to keep cool blonde or white hair looking beautiful and bright! The purple colour of the shampoo counteracts the yellow (or warmth or brassiness) that you usually see in blonde hair, especially right after it is lightened or as the toner starts to fade out. Those of you who are familiar with the colour wheel from art class will remember that lavender is directly across the wheel from yellow, and therefore cancels it out.


It smells like it is something that we should be eating, and it leaves the hair feeling soft and moisturized. It was reformulated a year or so ago, and we love the new formula so much more than the old one! You would leave the shampoo in your hair for 5-10 minutes (this time can vary for different people) before rinsing it off. Rinsing with cool water is best, as it closes down your hair cuticle to help trap the color in, and makes your hair feel better as well. You also don’t have to use this every time you wash your hair.


You can purchase Paul Mitchell Platinum Blonde Shampoo from online from Amazon. A 10.14oz bottle retails for $12.95. Also available at top local super markets.

Winter slippers or travel companions – Birkenstock Madrid Slide Sandals is the answer


During winters sometimes we are in socks all day long and this is where our flip flops fail us. Also while traveling, shoes take space and care while packing. For most trips, we bring a pair of nice looking sandals, which are casual enough to act as a substitute for flip flops, comfortable enough to wear all day and chic enough to not look like bathroom slippers for a night out.


We did our research and landed on Birkenstock Madrid sandals, one of the first styles that the company ever designed. Birkenstocks tend to elicit images of frumpy looking clogs, but the brand has created some new styles and revived old ones.




Adjustable strap: The strap that crosses your foot is adjustable, which is great for when your feet swell on a plane or when you want to wear socks with them. We recommend wearing them tighter than you think you’ll need, as they stabilize your foot better.


Cork foot bed: This is a signature of Birkenstock shoes, providing arched support and shock absorption. The product description also claims that the sandal improves your circulation.


Large toe box: It doesn’t crowd your toes.




Multiple colours: Birkenstock makes Madrids in dozens of funky styles and colours, including metallics and prints. Black can be a safe neutral choice.


True to size: When you choose your size, know that it will be accurate, not too big or too small.


Lightweight and packable: These shoes are no more than 1 pound because of the cork material, making for an ideal travel shoe. They can also fold flat, saving valuable space in your bag.


Durable: Birkenstocks last for many years before showing wear and tear.




The breaking in process: Be aware that you can’t comfortably wear them straight out of the box. Like other types of shoes, specifically Rainbows- they have to be broken in and molded to fit your foot. This can be uncomfortable for some and prevents them from enjoying Birkenstocks. We recommend that you wear with them with socks around your house for a few days before you bring them on a trip.


Price: Priced around $30 USD, they’re not extremely cheap, but it’s better to spend more on shoes that will last rather than continually buying low quality footwear.


You can buy these amazing slide sandals online from Amazon, ebay and Nordstrom.

Mario Badescu Just Introduced a Brand-New Version of Its Best-Selling Facial Spray


The Mario Badescu brand is a behemoth when it comes to all things skin care. The brand specializes in personalized skin care, which means that it sells multiple products for every type of skin (and skin problem) possible. The website even offers a skin analysis in case you’re a skin care newbie and want to get started on the journey that many of us are so very dedicated to. Though the brand in general is a major fave, it also has a few products that are best-sellers, including the facial mist. Now, a brand-new scent has been added to the line.


Previously, the brand already had the facial mist available in an aloe, herbs, and rosewater scent, as well as an aloe, cucumber, and green tea scent. Both facial sprays revitalize dull, tired skin and offer a “boost of hydration,” according to Ulta. Now, Instagram account @trendmood1 is reporting that it’s adding an aloe, chamomile, and lavender scent to the line.


According to the post, the product is “a facial mist with an infusion of calming botanicals and lavender essential water. Delivers a soothing boost of hydration, leaving the skin balanced and bright. “It will be available exclusively both online and in Ulta Beauty stores on December 26th. It will likely be the same price as the other mists, which is $7 for four ounces. If you just can’t wait to try the new scent, shop the Facial Spray With Aloe, Herb and Rosewater and the Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea on Ulta now.


Mario badescu facial sprays are formulated to deliver complexion-enhancing benefits to the skin. Infused with botanical extracts like Gardenia, Rose, and Thyme and formulated with nutrient-rich essential waters like Cucumber and Peppermint Essential Water, our facial mists leave all skin types hydrated, glowing, and refreshed.


One of our most frequently asked questions is what the differences between the rose and cucumber FACIAL SPRAY are. The original FACIAL SPRAY with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater is a classic facial mist that gives skin a dewy, radiant finish. FACIAL SPRAY with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea is designed as the perfect pick-me-up that tones and invigorates tired skin.


Both mists are meant to multi-task. Use them before moisturizer (on clean skin) to add more hydration, to dampen your favorite makeup brushes or sponges, as a final step after makeup application to give your skin a dewy finish, or throughout the day as needed.


You can shop all the Mario Badescu products from its own website as well which is worth $7per bottle.
