Abilasha’s Journey To Perfect Long Hair & Glowing Skin
Read Time: 15 Mins
When I talked to Abilasha in March 2018, I could tell it is coming from a person who is actually eager to go 100% organic.
As I grilled her with questions about her scalp and hair (I need to do my home work) she kept her calm taking it all coolly.
Pictures were exchanged
As my eyes fell on her hair, I knew
It can give a serious run for the money to any top shot Instagram model.
If cared for wholeheartedly, she’d land at lovely locks that can be confidently hash-tagged Hair Goals!
Our Plan Of Action
Pep-talking Abilasha was easy. In fact it was a piece of cake.
She was far more excited than me
Every journey has its share of roadblocks.
So did Abilasha’s
Thankfully, she didn’t turn them into excuses (which 9/10 people would have)
- From having no breathing time early morning (college rush)
- To having a college unbelievably far off
- To braving Chennai’s merciless summers
We knew – If we keep looking at the problems, we’d see only problems. Let’s look at the possibilities.
It may sound philosophical but we did not compromise on her routine one bit.
Abilasha’s Scalp & Hair Decoded
(A) Scalp – Oily Bring dirt, dust and pollution into the picture and there you are gifted with scalp itching & sweat.
(B) Hair – Dry Since it gets exposed to dust blowing throughout the day, her long hair turns drier as the day rolls by.
Here’s What We Did
- We knew the problems
- We know the constraints
- And we knew that we HAD to do something
Something long lasting whose results build up and not pale down overtime.
With an extensive routine chalked out, we set on getting Abilasha stunning long hair.
Here’s Her Journey To Perfect Long Hair
Which started in March 2018
After 2 Weeks
For a long time, Abilasha’s hair looked average.
Experimented over by beauty parlour ladies, tortured by Chennai’s unbearable heat and more embarrassingly ignored by her for years.
She turned organic, did what her hair needed.
And then things changed
In 2 weeks, her hair responded and how!
Shine, smoothness, bounce, frizz control and that dazzling black-meets-brown tinge.
This was jaw droppingly quick progress!
After 3 Weeks
See for yourself
Isn’t her luscious long hair to die for?
After 1 Month
The richness of her original natural hair colour intensified.
Although still majorly brown, her long hair was on the verge of turning black.
1 Month Down The Line
By now Abilasha’s
- Hair fall had decreased (it cannot be zero ever. Else our heads would’ve been dense Amazon forests)
- Scalp itching began reducing
- Hair texture looked drool worthy
That since Abilasha’s long hair was responding positively and promptly, we’d see far better changes overtime provided we don’t go lax.
Which I wouldn’t have let her go anyway.
Trust me. I am the human embodiment of a “Rakta Pipaasu Jeev”
Abilasha wanted to go organic for her skin
By now, she had gotten used to my kind of grind. So, no more pep talks were called for.
Abilasha’s Skin Talk: How We Got Her Gorgeous Skin
This was a cakewalk
Because apart from some minor pimples and a dull complexion, Abilasha’s skin just like her long hair had immense potential.
Her organic skin care routine was chalked out and sent.
How Abilasha’s Skin Changed Incredibly
Just like her luscious long hair, Abilasha’s skin too responded in a matter of 2-3 weeks.
Fresh, clear and evenly toned with a brighter complexion.
It was a bit hard to stomach that initially. But then who’s complaining?
We didn’t take it easy
Instead we kept the ball rolling so that such astonishing results get enhanced overtime.
After 3 Months
(Hold your breath)
To sum up
- Gorgeous glowing skin – Check
- Hair so perfect any celebrity would be green with envy – Double check
Here’s the truth
In spite of dedicating 9 years to organic skin care my skin is not as clear as that of Abilasha.
Call it perfection!
There. I said it. Improving it would be a different ballgame for us now.
Because it’s hard to improve perfection!
Success Spotlight: Grilling Abilasha
For it’s time to put her in the spotlight
N: How did we cross paths?
A: I have been a huge organic skin and hair care lover since I was 18.
I’d stalk organic skincare brands on social media and check out product reviews by various bloggers.
Imagine my excitement when I saw an Instagram page devoted to turning others into full time organic skin & hair care junkies!
Basically, a dream come true.
Because I wanted to go organic 100% organic and who better than an expert to guide you?
PS – I got to your account through Aroma Essentials Instagram.
N: Run us through your skin & hair problems one last time.
A: I’d pen down a whole book if I start!
To keep it short –
- My skin was oily, dull and prone to breakouts (blame Chennai’s weather)
- I had extremely itchy and oily scalp (deadly combination) and dandruff as an icing on the cake.
N: Before consulting me, which products or DIYs did you opt for?
A: I used products from a brand that I learnt was not organic after consulting you.
Turmeric and curd mix was a staple everyday at home along with several other DIYs for skincare passed by my grandmother.
For my hair?
Zip. Nada. Nothing.
N: The toughest part of your routine was ___
A: Without an iota of doubt, the diet plan.
Especially those herbal teas
They were hard to gulp. As someone who had never eaten what all you’d asked me to eat, that was challenging.
I admit, initially there were a few days when I skipped those (I am sorry, Nidhal) 😛
A full curved smile on my mom’s face 24 x 7 because I was eating “healthy”
As fas as the the DIY part is concerned, I LOVED everything. Till date I eagerly look forward to my organic hair wash sessions, especially the weekend one.
It’s like a spa time for me.
N: You have tolerated my madness for 3 months without cribbing. Any comments?
A: “Without cribbing”?
Are you sure, Nidhal?
I think you’ve braved me for 3 months patiently not the vice versa.
I have realized besides the monetary aspect of the consultation, there’s more.
You develop a personal rapport with your customer to ensure that everything works out alright.
That’s something I admire in you.
Keep going the way you are. You’ll scale greater heights!
A Little Note To Abilasha
Here’s the thing
I AM awestruck and slightly (actually a lot) envious of your transformation.
Such a sea change was unhoped for
For 3 months, you kept your calm and thankfully never asked – When will I see changes?
(As if I am sitting with a timer in my hand)
Shows your level headedness considering everything takes time.
In my broken Tamil – Ni Alakaka Irukkiray!
