The Best Hair Products I've Tried In 2016


Now before I get into the review part of this post, let me tell you about my dandruff issue that I've been facing for about 4-5 months now. As a person with oily hair, the appearance of dandruff baffled me (I now know the science behind it) and I really didn't know how to deal with it. I used the crap out of Head & Shoulders (didn't work), tried desi totkas to yougurt masks (didn't work), tried oiling the crap out of my hair (didn't work) - I'm not the most patient person in the world when it comes to beauty treatments so I just gave up eventually.

A few weeks ago, I got this huge package from Keune with hair products from their Care Line range, particularly for dry hair. As the weather in Islamabad gets colder, my hair ahs been getting dryer so one fine day I just decided to try it out. As you do when washing your hair, I started with the shampoo first, then the conditioner and after drying my hair just a bit I used the oil at the very ends. I went about my day, my hair felt 'fluffier' and more 'voluminous' and I really liked that effect. As a person with thin hair, I'm all for 'fluffy-ing' hair products. It wasn't until I came back from work and really looked at my hair that I noticed something I hadn't for the past 4-5 months - my dandruff has all but dissapered! I was shocked! Now a bit about my dandruff issue, its only limited to the front of my scalp so if you look closely enough, you will see it. I tried and I tried and I could barely notice it, just after one wash with a shampp that doesn't even claim to be dandruff removing or anything!

Since this was too good to be true, before announcing to the world about the magical hair care range, I decided to test it futher AND BOY, OH BOY, the results amaze me every time. My dandruff has all but dissappeared, my har feels healthies given this range doesn't have any nasty sulfates and parabens and I couldn't be happier with it.

Would I buy this range again? YES!
Do I recommed this to people with dandruff? YES!
Do I recommed this to people who don't have dandruff? YES!

Would You Try This Pumpkin (Kadu) Mask?!


Ask anyone who knows me well and they'll attest to the fact that I don't like pumpkins - period! So when this Brightening Pumpkin Honey Glycolic mask was sent my way by Andalou Naturals - I was apprehensive about trying it. First things first, it doesn't smell nice so if you're looking for a flowery smelling face mask, this is not the one for you - but if you are looking for a brightening mask that really does work, you might wanna keep reading.

So, I'll keep this short and sweet. Once you get over the strong scent that this mask gives off, you'll notice the texture. It has minuscule middle abrasive particles in it that really exfoliate your skin as you're washing the mask off. I've tried this mask a handful of times up till now, and slowly but steadily, there has been a difference in my skin. I'm going crazy with work and shady preps these days so while I may not look like a glowing bride after using this, I'm starting to look less and less tired after every use and that's always a great thing. You obviously have to keep using the mask for the results to stay longer, this isn't a one time and you're fixed forever kinda product (do those even exist?!)

I apply the mask for about 10 minutes, during which it does start to sting so if you're someone who doesn't like that, be warned. After that just wash off with warm water and you're done. Easy peasy!

Salon Review - Glam Street Islamabad


It's not often that I come across a salon that I love - there's always something or the other that I wish that could be changed - be it someone from the management, the workers, quality of the services, or anything really. This is definitely not the case with the Glam Street - I fell in love with this place! From the decor, to the lovely ladies managing it, to the wonderful and courteous staff who are giving amazing services, to the strong kick-ass coffee served, there's not a fault I can find.

Other than all of this, the most exciting discovery for me here was that they offer 1-Hour-GlamGlow facials! I mean, what?!? How amazing is that! I haven't tried any of the GlamGlow masks so will definitely be getting a GlamGlow facial from them in the near future so I can decide which one I want to splurge on!

The team of Glam Street has invited me along with a few other bloggers to come and try out some of their services, i opted for a pedicure because in all honesty, my feet are always in need of some TLC haha! The lovely lady who did my pedicure did a fantastic job, and an impromptu head massage at the same time nearly made me doze off. I'm like a headless chicken these days, going crazy with shade preps, so this was more than a welcome treat!

Check out some of my pictures from the day below :)

Doing what I love most, Instagramming and eating! Haha

The lovely team! <3 

Overall, if you can't tell by now, I had an amazing experience, so much so that I've decided to come here right before my wedding to get some facials, messages and mani/pedis done - if that's not a testament to how much I love this place, don't know what else would be! Haha <3
