What’s in the box:

This oil has a combination of ancient Ayurvedic remedies renowned for their hair strengthening properties and ability to minimise hair loss, we blend antioxidant and vitamin-rich Bringaraj, Amla, Shikakai and Aritha in a base of Organic Coconut Oil to help thicken and volumise thin and damaged hair. Carrot seed oil, Bhrahmi and Methi are traditionally used to induce hair growth, improve circulation and rejuvenate hair follicles for long and lustrous hair.

I have previously used this hair growth oil and enjoyed using it. It contains some of the most popular ayurvedic herbs for hair growth. The consistency is light and I love the herbal scent.
The instructions say to apply to the hair strands and massage into the scalp in a stimulating circular motion for 15-20 minutes. To have maximum effect of this Growth Hair Oil, it is best to leave it overnight allowing the oil to penetrate the hair and scalp. Use 2-3 times a week. Wash and rinse.
I like to use this as a hot oil treatment. Adding this to my hair routine has helped strengthen my hair so I have less breakage. My hair is growing nicely and is more healthy.

*From Organic Farming, **From Essential Oils.
I really like this mascara. It is lightweight and glides on smoothly, defining each lash perfectly. I find one coat is enough to lengthen my lashes and give volume. You can apply a second coat to build up more volume if you want. It doesn’t clump up but gives me perfectly defined and long lashes.
