Birthday Giveaway Winners!

Hey guys!

I’ve been gone for a while.. My last post was on Nov 3rd. That’s coz I faced a life threatening condition called Eclampsia on Nov 4th. I was 7.5 months pregnant and all of a sudden my BP shot through the roof. I had eclamptic convulsions and was rushed to hospital in an unconscious state. Emergency cesarean followed and I gave birth to a boy :). Am still recuperating in hospital but there is not much to worry now. My BP is back to normal. Baby is underweight though but slowly gaining weight. I would totally appreciate it if you all would include me and my baby in your prayers..

On to my birthday giveaway winners, that I was supposed to announce on Nov 14th.. All winners are randomly chosen as always.

August 2014 Link Loves!

Hey!

Yet another month has passed by!. I really hope you had an amazing month. I fulfilled one of my wishes this month and that was to visit Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world :). Then I spent some quality time with my parents when they came to visit me recently. We went shopping to Mega Mall in Sharjah.

Another really exciting thing is that my hair is now completely back to how it was look-wise before I rebonded my hair, five years ago!. The first time I rebonded my hair was in 2009 (Want a detailed post?. Click here). I rebonded a second time in 2010.

As years went by, the new hair seemed wavier than before and the bottom half of my hair was still straight. It’s not a really neat look. I have always sported long hair and I didn’t want to cut a big chunk off in one go. I kept letting my hair grow then trimming it and repeating this process. I would have an inch cut off every 2 or 3 months, thus getting rid of the straight [damaged] hair but at the same time, keeping my hair length the same throughout. This month, the last of the straight hair was trimmed off!. I am not saying my wavy hair is damage free now. Of course not. Hair strength and damage wise, I don’t think I can ever go back to my virgin hair but hey a girl gotta keep trying right?. So, I will keep looking after it by oiling regularly, applying deep condition masks and all that.

Alright, on to my August favorites:

1) Camila of Titi Crafty has created these gorgeous DIY Modge Podge Wooden Jewelry boxes and done a complete tutorial on it. They are so perfect and pretty. I love the pattern combinations on each box. Check them out!

Review: EYOVA Hair nutrient with Egg oil!

Hey guys!

I recently happened to hear about Eyova’s egg oil when someone commented about it on one of my most popular posts – 2 eggs = 1 fabulous DIY hair mask + 1 face mask!. I checked their website and was pretty intrigued to know more about it. I found out that this brand ships and sells only within India. So, I didn’t check more into it. However, I was quite surprised when someone from Eyova contacted me recently and asked me if I am willing to review a bottle!. I was pretty overjoyed at the chance to try it. They couriered me the bottle from Mumbai 🙂

Pretty much every one knows that when you apply egg to your hair, it’s very beneficial. However, not everyone does it because of how inconvenient and uncomfortable it is. This is where Eyova comes into picture.

One bottle of Eyova contains 50ml of product. This 50ml has the goodness of 22 eggs!. It’s packed with egg’s nutrients. It doesn’t drip or smell disgustingly of eggs.

I have been using it twice a week for a little more than a month. The oil is slightly hazy, yellow in color and viscous. It’s not as thick as castor oil but still is thicker than any regular oil. It has a really mild smell of eggs. However, the dominant smell is a fragrance that smells good.

When you apply it on to your hair, it seems like your hair is drinking up the goodness. There is no oiliness or greasiness at all. However, almost immediately your hair gets a natural shine. You have to apply it for a minimum of 3 hours or you can even leave it overnight and then wash off with your regular shampoo. I usually applied it overnight since after the application, your hair isn’t oily at all and the smell isn’t pungent.

I mainly concentrate on the lower half of my hair since it needs more conditioning than the roots. Of course, this being an oil, long term usage brings more benefits to your hair. My review is based on a short term usage of a bit more than a month. I am sure the more I use it, the better my hair will be.

This oil contains :

  • Essential Fatty Acids (like Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids) – which stimulates hair growth and fights poor scalp conditions like dry and flaky scalp, thus preventing dandruff and hair loss.
  • Cholesterol – which deep conditions hair and enhances the penetration of other bioactives, thus adding shine and luster to hair strands.
  • Lutein & Zeaxanthin – which helps fight free radical chain reactions which damage hair, thus increasing hydration, elasticity of the scalp and preventing premature ageing (graying) of the hair.

I am loving this hair nutrient and I highly suggest you give this a try!

Price of a 50ml bottle is Rs. 590 (AED 35.59) and can be ordered from their online site www.eyova.com. If you suffer from weak, thin, damaged or greying hair, give this oil a try. The bottle will last quite a bit of time, even though it’s 50ml, since a little goes a long way.

By the way, I would like to highlight how essential oils can enhance hair growth. Click here to read an informative post about it.

[Update as on 1st Mar 2016] – Eyova is now available in a brand new look. Check it out!.
