It seems like eternity since I reviewed anything from Omved! So after a pretty long gap, here is yet another review on one of my favourite brands, Omved. On my last visit at their store I picked up the Hair Pack. I have used quite a few products of Omved, but never ventured into the hair care range.
Omved Hair Pack
Now, the first time I used it I did not follow it up with a shampoo and conditioner. Since it was hair nourishing pack, I thought it may not be right to follow it up with a shampoo. Post washing (and not using a shampoo) I smelt like I had dunked my hair into neem and methi paste. Yes, this pack has a strong fragrance. I had to step back for another shower and hair wash.
I realized that something was amiss and I checked with Omved. I was wrong, the hairpack has to be followed by a shampoo and a conditioner. Post that incident, I started using a shampoo and conditioner with it. I use my regular shampoo and conditioner, which is Barnängen aloe vera yogurt shampoo + conditioner. My guess is that shampoos and conditioners from Omved would be a better bet! My next buy from Omved would be a shampoo and conditioner that I can use post the hair pack.
I have short hair, but very thick hair, and I used roughly about a tablespoon of the pack and made it into a runny paste by mixing water in it. And I applied it on the hair like I would apply oil. I let it stay for 15 – 20 minutes and washed it off in the shower. Don’t make the paste so runny that it would drip.
Price and Shelf life
It is priced at Rs. 150 for a 50 gm pouch. It comes with a shelf life of 2 years. Once you open the pack, ensure that you keep it in the refrigerator.
Would I recommend this? : Yes.My hair feels visibly lighter and healthier post the use of this product. If you have a dry and itchy scalp or even dandruff, you must give this a try. I have an itchy scalp during winters and this hair pack reduced the itchiness to a great deal. But do not forget to follow up the wash with a shampoo and conditioner.
