Product Review: Nature Sure Jonk Tail (Leech Oil)

If you follow me on Instagram, you would know that I received a few products Nature Sure for review.
I have been using these products for over a month now. After thorough trial and testing, I am here to share my review.

Today I am talking about the Nature Sure Jonk Tail (Leech Oil).
The reason why I was really excited about trying this product is because Leech based hair care therapy was used by none other than Cleo Patra.

Why Nature Sure Jonk Oil?
The saliva of Leech/Jonk has many curative properties and it is an active ingredient in most medications. It is especially effective in treating alopecia, baldness and hair related disease which makes it an ideal ingredient for hair care products.
Nature Sure makes sure that it uses 100% pure ingredients thereby making this hair oil effective.
My experience:
I started using it twice a week. The oil is green in color, non-sticky and smells a bit weird but not very repulsive.
I applied it on my hair roots and massaged it in my scalp for some time. I left it overnight and washed my hair in the morning.
I continued this routine, twice a week, for over a month.

Week 1:
When I washed my hair, I was keenly monitoring my hair loss.
The hair loss looked the same.

Week 2:
Hair loss during hair wash was the same. But hair loss during hair combing was a little less.

Week 3:
Hair loss during hair wash was the same.
Hair loss
during hair combing was considerably less and my hair just felt fuller and thicker.

Week 4:
I actually did a happy dance when I saw that there were hardly a few hair strands that fell out during hair wash. Hair combing felt pleasurable every single time as I could hardly see any hair loss.

A 110ml bottle of Jonk Oil  last me for almost 2 months. And it only costs Rs. 227.
I think it is totally value for money and perfect for new moms who have experienced post partum hair loss and have no time to take care of their hair.

It's a simple solution that really worked wonders on my hair.

I was very happy with my experience and have switched to Nature Sure's Jonk Oil for good.

OOTD: Gudi Padwa Special

Happy Gudi Padwa Everyone. Gudi Padwa is the Marathi New Year and this post is my tribute to the Marathi culture, I was born and raised in.
Growing up in a nuclear family setup where both my parents were working professionals, festivals held a great significance in our lives. It was the day, our parents were home and we had such good time over good food and non-stop conversations. We hardly watched TV then.
My mom being the best story teller that she is, would tell us all about her childhood memories of the different festivals they celebrated. She would tell us, that even though her parents were financially constrained, they made sure that they celebrated festivals with proper traditions. 
As a little girl, my mom had once asked her mom, why do they incur unnecessary expenditure on festivals when they should be ideally spending it on something more important. And her mom/my Nani had simply replied that it is festivals that enrich our mundane lives. People coming together to celebrate festivals is a way of preserving and enriching our culture. If we don't clebrate it, you as an adult wouldn't celebrate it either and so wouldn't your kids. We don't want to be responsible for killing our culture, customs and traditions.
And that's why, no matter how busy or tired my mom was, she made sure we celebrated festivals in the right way and spirit. And that's what I try to do too.

For today's Gudi Padwa special post, I am wearing a Narayan Peth Saree with traditional Maharashtrian jewellery and crescent moon bindi. 

Narayan Peth Saree is a traditional Maharashtrian saree that is woven mainly in the Solapur district of Maharashtra.
Historical records say that the Maratha King Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj traveled to the Narayan Peth region and camped there for a while. When he continued his journey, some weavers stayed behind and they created the Narayan Peth Saree.
Narayan Peth Sarees are light in weight which makes them easy to carry and are inexpensive as well.
Hope you like my traditional look. Scroll down for pictures.
