Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition - Happy Hair Challenge


Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition - Happy Hair Challenge

    Who doesn't love challenges and especially those which bring forth a positive change!! So when I heard about the Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition - Happy Hair Challenge, which requires me to use the Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition range for a period of 30 days and blog about how it works for my hair, I enrolled myself for it right away!
   Though I am pretty content with the haircare products I was using until now, I couldn't be happier to have the opportunity to try out the Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Shampoo and Conditioner as I have used it previously and had quite liked how it made my hair feel and look like.

   My hair concerns:
   My hair woes started when I had to leave Mumbai for educational purpose to stay in a town where only hard water was available for bathing. That along with frequent to and fro train travels, between my home and hostel exposed my hair to sun damage and air pollution. This combined with consumption of not very nutritious mess food ultimately lead to thin, rough, dry, dull and lusterless mane. A few years ago I also started experiencing hair fall which over time reduced the density of my hair quite significantly! Also, I have a hereditary tendency of premature greying of hair which started manifesting itself since past 3 - 4 years. The only positives that I can think about my hair are that I never suffered much from split ends or frizzy hair.
   Now that I am back in Mumbai where I can take better care of myself, I have slowly but steadily overcome most of these hair woes. The ones which are still a major concern for me are:
- Hair fall.

- Reduced hair density with thin hair.
- Greying of hair.
- Dry hair with an excessively oily scalp.

   First look at the Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition range:
- The Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Shampoo and Conditioner come in a travel friendly melon yellow plastic bottles with all the product claims and usage information printed on them and have a sturdy flip cap which resists product leakage. 
- The shampoo as well as the conditioner smell divine which is a big plus for me. 
- While the shampoo has more of an off-white color with a glossy look to it, the conditioner is curdy white and thicker in consistency.  
- Costing just Rs.135/- for a 175 ml bottle, the Triple Nutrition range definitely is easy on the pocket!

   I will start using the Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition range from tomorrow for a period of 30 days and will be back with a detailed report of how it fares! In the meantime, would love to know if any of you guys have given this range a try and if yes, has this made your hair feel happy?

#UseYourAnd and Take a Stand


   We women have always known to be great multi-taskers. Since ages we have been taking care of ourselves as well as our families, keeping the home neat and clean, cooking, doing the laundry and a hundred little things simultaneously and in many cases without the much needed breaks in between. And with changing times, apart from completing their household chores, women have also started making their mark in each and every field imaginable to humans. Not only do we run our homes but also this world. Right from being employed as minimum wage workers to entrepreneurs to managing directors and CEOs of multi million companies, women are making their contribution to support their families as well as the development of nations. So when a person tags us, categorizing us as just a "Homemaker" or a "Singer" or an "Engineer" or any other one-dimensional label it really irritates me and makes me angry beyond words!
   So when Gillette Venus came up with the #UseYourAnd campaign in collaboration with BlogAdda I jumped at the opportunity to put my views across. When we women can fulfill the roles of being a daughter, a sister, a wife, a daughter-in-law, a mother, an aunt, a friend and so many more all at once why are we not given the chance to fulfill our career goals and at the same time pursue our hobbies??

   This perception needs to change as only then would our society be able to progress in the real sense. I got lucky in getting born in a family where education is considered to be of utmost importance and being independent and ability to stand on my on two feet was stressed upon right from the start.

#UseYourAnd and Take a Stand

   Since my early childhood days I dreamed of entering the medical profession as nothing interested me more than the wonder that the human body is! Though I was never a brilliant student in studies, I always strived towards achieving that dream with determination until finally I completed my medical graduation and I could finally call myself a Doctor and that too, on the basis of pure merit. As I am still far from being the professional that I aspire to be one day, my journey is far from over. After my graduation I took a hiatus from working in a medical institution so that I could study for my post graduation entrance and that was when I discovered cosmetics and fell in love with how confident and gorgeous they made me feel. On a whim I started this blog to relieve myself from the constant stress of studying thus giving myself an alternative identity of that of a blogger. But pursuing two things at the same time did not in any way mean that they are done halfheartedly, but signify the many feathers in my cap!

   As of now, I can count two feathers in my cap.. 
   Not a Doctor OR a Blogger but, a Doctor AND a Blogger..
   How many can you??
