I buy all my skin and hair care products after thorough research. I had never heard of the brand Omved before. It was while shopping at Crossword that a sales lady approached me and introduced me to the brand. Since I had never heard of the brand before, I was reluctant to buy any skin product. However, the sales lady managed to sell me an eye pillow that helps to relieve eye strain. I liked the eye pillow (will write a review on that soon) and so I decided to check out the brand. The first thing I noticed about this brand was that its products are expensive. Omved offers 100% natural products, devoid of harmful chemicals which is why the high price. I have been using a few products from this brand and I can say that it is totally worth it. For now, I will tell you my experience using the Omved hibiscus brahmi hair mask.
Name: Omved Hibiscus Brahmi Hair Mask
Price: ₹220/- for 50gms
What does it claim?
The hair mask deep conditions the scalp, soothes itching by clearing dandruff and makes the hair soft and lustrous.
How to use?
Mix the powder with water or yoghurt to make a paste of it. Massage into scalp and apply on hair. Leave it on for 15 minutes and then rinse with lukewarm or regular water.
Does it fulfil its claim?
The hair mask comes in a silver pouch. The mask is a light brown powder that you need to mix with either water or yoghurt. I mixed water to my mask and made a thick paste of it. I then gently rubbed it over my scalp and then applied the remaining paste over my hair. I left it one for around 15 minutes and then washed it off with lukewarm water.
Even after mixing with water, the mask feels coarse in texture because of which I found it a little difficult to apply on the scalp. I did not really massage the mask on my scalp like a hair oil but applied it like a regular mask. I applied it on previously oiled hair and also on normal hair and the mask works well on both. I washed it off with my regular shampoo and noticed that the mask has a strong smell that does not fade even after a wash. It smells of a regular Ayurvedic powder which I don’t mind at all. After drying my hair, I noticed the shine and instant lift in my thin hair. My hair is silky but thin and limp. This mask gave a natural lift to my hair that made my head look fuller. My hair also looks shinier than before. My scalp used to feel itchy because I sweat excessively on my scalp. This mask did soothe my scalp and reduced the itching. The packet mentions that it prevents hair fall but let me tell you that a hair mask is not enough to stop hair loss. This hair mask did not help me with my hair fall but it did work on making my hair soft and lustrous. I gave this mask to my sister who has thin and dry hair and the mask worked well for her too. Both of us now swear by this mask and recommend it to anyone who lacks hair volume.
What’s good about it?
Makes the hair soft
Soothes itchy scalp
Adds bounce and shine to hair
What’s not so good about it?
I give Omved Hibiscus Brahmi Hair Mask 4.5 out of 5 rating. The hair mask did nothing for my hair fall but it certainly gave new life to my dull and limp hair. I am certainly repurchasing it. If you too have thin and dull hair, try this mask as it adds bounce and shine to hair.
