BIOTIQUE Bio Mountain Ebony Fresh Growth Stimulating Serum

Hi Beautifuls!

Today I am going to review a "Leave-In" kind of hair product from the Biotique family -  Bio Mountain Ebony Fresh Growth Stimulating Serum.

I will tell you the story behind procuring the product. Since I have shifted to Gurgaon, my hair fall increased so much that once I thought I would go bald in the next 3 years (HaHaHa..Funny). On top of that My hair became brittle, frizzy and thin  :(

One day I was browsing through an online shopping portal, where I found this product. I thought of giving it a try, thinking atleast I can try fix this problem. (Thank God I did!). Thinking that it is a herbal product, even if it does not help me but it will not harm me.




Product Description

This intensive serum is blended with pure extracts of mountain ebony, long pepper, glycyrrhizin and the euphorbia tree, to promote new and healthy hair growth. Stimulates hair, from root to tip, and leaves scalp feeling toned , exhilarated, free from dryness and irritation.



Ingredients

No chemicals, No Paraben - A great Yayyyyy from my side.



Price

Rs 159 for 120 ML

My Experience

Well, the company calls it a serum, but I am not happy to call it a serum. I can say it is a hair tonic. Serum being thick liquids, and it is quite runny watery formula. I   have not experienced any hair growth as of now, but my hair fall has reduced to almost 1 or 2 strands a day (Just Imagine!! tremendous). Also my hair feels soft after application.It is good food for my hair I can say, with so many herbs in the formula.

Basically I apply a small amount of the liquid at night onto my dry scalp and massage for 5 mins. Trust me I feel like heaven. It is so relaxing. How can a serum be sooo relaxing. That is why I hate to call it a serum and also it does not work as a serum on to the hair. One thing I was so surprised to see was, my hair felt black and shiny after the application. It does not help in detangling my hair, neither it makes my hair smooth after application.

The packaging is cute and quite sturdy. It comes in a the trademark Biotique Plastic bottle with a green cap with a bluish sticker pasted on the body. The body is translucent and you can see the liquid. It helps me to know how much of the liquid has been used. The liquid does not spill from the bottle and it is definitely a travel friendly package.

One thing I must say, it has a lovely smell. Once you have applied it , it gives out such a sweet smell from your hair and your hand. I keep sniffing my hands for hours after application. (hehehe yes I am that mad). It is a mix and match of a fruity and a flowery smell and I completely adore it!




What I Like

1. Paraben & Chemical free
2. Travel friendly Packaging
3. Sweet smell
4. Provides relaxation once applied
5. Not Pricey at all
6. Helps in reducing hair fall drastically
