Posted on

Hey All 🙂 Remember a couple of weeks back I had posted about my Nioxin hair spa experience at the Bounce Saloon (you can read about it here), so this is my detailed review on the kit after using it for almost a month now 🙂 🙂

Nioxin Product Launch & My Hair Spa Experience!

Posted on

Its been almost 4 years since I’ve started blogging and this is the first time, I see a beauty (hair-care) brand organizing a launch event in Chennai. All thanks to BlogAdda for taking up this initiative and organizing this wonderful event. The day was quite memorable in terms of meeting like-minded fellow bloggers and some wonderful BlogAdda team members and most importantly hearing from the experts about the product and experiencing the same at a best-in-class salon “Bounce”!

Nioxin was founded in 1987, by Eva Graham when she experienced hair thinning problem after the birth of her first child. She began to investigate the idea of treating the scalp with skincare methods. Hair thinning is a major problem across all age groups & gender, though the condition cannot be reversed, with early detection, advanced technology and professional help the situation can be controlled. 


Hair thinning is caused by various factors. The primary ones are,

Genetics –> Age related hormonal  changes, the conversion of testosterone into the toxin Dihydrotestosterone ( DHT ) triggers the hair loss and this can be inherited easily from either of the parent.

Stress & Trauma –> Stress increases the Testosterone levels which later transforms into DHT and stops the hair growth. Stress constricts the blood supply through the capillaries, which restricts the oxygen & nutrient uptake & vitamins to the hair follicle. 

Nutrition & Diet –> Consumption of animal fat, weight loss, liquid protein diet will result in lack of amino acids, biotin, iron, protein & zinc – these are the essentials for a healthy looking hair!

Health Issues –> Thyroid – Hormonal changes during pregnancy & menopause could also trigger hair loss

Environmental Factors –> Polluted Air/Water, chlorine, lead etc could lead to hair thinning problems

Medication –> Hormone therapy, usage of steroids, chemotherapies, medication for blood pressure, diabetes, heart diseases and acne would cause hair thinning! 

Other contributing factors include excessive usage of Styling tools, chemical treatments and aging!

Indian Beauty Subscription Bag – Fabbag! – April 2015

Posted on

Halo Everyone!! Hope you are all doing good 🙂 The past month was pretty hectic for me and know what? this post was supposed to go live last month same date but due to personal reasons I wasn’t able to concentrate much on the blog and hence the delay! 🙁

Hope I catch up soon on the pending posts 🙂

Talking about Fabbag, (which was then called as Vellvette box) I could recollect certain things, like they were the pioneers to launch a successful beauty subscription box in the Indian market. I was a loyal customer since their launch for about a year or so, but then I somehow felt the products were repeated most of the time and the makeup selection was very minimal. Just for the records my first order with them was on September 2012! 🙂 And then there were other beauty boxes that entered the market and the urge to try new things made me take a break from Fabbag! 

So when I got an opportunity to try the April month’s bag I was delighted to try it just out of curiosity to see if the brand has outgrown itself during this period (By the way, the moment I stopped my subscription, the box had turned to a bag and the name from “Vellvette” to “Fabbag”!) 🙂

Let us see the contents of April Fabbag!
