I have been styling my hair a lot lately because I have been losing so much hair that I feel conscious of how my hair looks when I am out. And all this hair styling business makes my hair really dry. I oil my hair regularly which does help in keeping frizz at bay but sometimes even oil does not help me. In such situations, I look for a hair mask to help maintain a natural bounce and shine in my hair. I bought the Biotique Bio Musk Root Hair Mask a few months ago when the temperature in my city was on a decline and my hair had become too frizzy. And I was surprised to see how well it worked for me. I could see its effects in just two uses and I now swear by it. After finishing ¾ of the product here is my experience with it.
Name: Biotique Bio Musk Root Fresh Growth Nourishing Treatment Pack
Price: ₹230/- for 230 gm
What does it claim?
Also known as ’the divine herb’, Musk Root is used to promote hair growth. The Bio Musk Root hair pack contains pure musk rot, bael, liquorice and nutmeg that invigorate and rejuvenate the scalp, strengthen the hair and promote hair growth.
How to use?
Mix with egg or yoghurt and apply to dry or oiled hair and scalp. Leave on for 30 minutes before rinsing off with regular water. Apply once a week.
Does it fulfil its claim?
The hair mask is a thick grainy paste that comes in a white tub with a green screw cap.
It has a strong herbal smell, similar to that of henna. Since the pack is thick you cannot apply it directly to hair and need to mix it with either egg or yoghurt. I have tried it with both egg and yoghurt separately and personally prefer it with yoghurt. If you prefer egg then ensure that you use a shampoo rich in citrus fruits to get rid of the smell. So, after mixing it with yoghurt I leave the mask on for around 30 minutes and wash it off with lukewarm water. My hair feels soft even as I wash it. After drying, my hair looks visibly shiny and bouncy. I also feel that my naturally brown hair looks dark each time I use this hair mask. The brand does not promise any hair ‘darkening’ effects but that is just what I notice each time I use it. I did not notice any hair strengthening or hair growth effects. I don’t think a hair mask can really do such stuff. But it worked wonderfully for the external appearance of my hair and I am content with it.
What’s good about it?
Contains natural ingredients
Highly nourishing and moisturising
Makes hair shiny and bouncy
Softens rough hair
Hair appears darker after every use
What’s not so good about it?
Does not really help with hair growth

I give Biotique Bio Musk Root Hair Mask 4 out of 5 rating. It may not help with hair fall issues but it certainly helps the hair look healthy and shiny.
