LipstickAlchemist x Hairbitat

As I’ve moaned about it many times on various platforms, I do not have the best hair and it’s especially damaged now because I underwent chemical smoothening to deal with the dry, frizzy mess that it is. It tangles easily and falls like rain. It’s madness. So when Hairbitat approached me to try their 100% Herbal Hair Treatment that helps repair damaged hair AND reduces hairfall, I jumped at the opportunity to fix my wildchild!

Hairbitat brings the Singaporean brand Bee Choo Origin’s 100% chemical free, herbal hair treatment to India. It’s an award winning treatment designed to improve the health of the scalp, thus solving problems such as hair loss, greying hair and dandruff, with the added bonus of imbuing hair with a natural shine. They have outlets in Bangalore, Chennai and Coimbatore. I went to the one on Vittal Mallya Road but within Bangalore they’re also located at JP Nagar and HSR Layout.

I met the manager of the outlet, Ratna, who walked me through the whole process and answered all of my questions. The professional working on my hair was Jessie and she did a wonderful job! Keep reading for a full review, a vlog of the process and my thoughts on this treatment.

LipstickAlchemist x Hairbitat | Bee Choo Origin 100% Herbal Hair Treatment

It’s a four part process that I will further break down into smaller steps to give you a complete lowdown of what to expect when you opt for this service!

  1. Prep
  2. Masque
  3. Wash
  4. Final touch

– PREP –

Step 1: Ginger Tonic

Starting with freshly washed, clean hair, ginger tonic is sprayed all over the scalp to open up pores, stimulate circulation and enhance absorption of the masque.

Step 2: Olive Oil

Olive oil is applied to the length of your hair to moisturize and nourish it.

– MASQUE –

Step 3: 100% Herbal Hair Masque for Scalp

The star of the show, the henna like masque containing over 21 super ingredients is applied liberally to your scalp. I loved that they did it thoroughly and did not cheap out on it. They separate the hair into small sections for maximum coverage as you can see in the video.

Step 4: Hair Spa Masque

A white coloured hair spa creme is applied to the lengths of your hair to make it softer and more manageable.

Step 5: 100% Herbal Hair Masque for Hair

The same herbal paste that was applied to the scalp is then applied to the lengths of the hair but more sparingly compared to the scalp.


Step 6: Steaming

Your hair is then wrapped up in a plastic sheet and secured with a headband to prevent dripping. It is then steamed for 45 minutes. During this time I was offered a chrysanthemum tea to sip on while I read their latest feature in the August issue of Hair magazine.

– WASH –

Step 7: Wash + Massage

Your hair is rinsed to remove the product and a menthol shampoo is then used to wash it. The specialist then gives you a scalp and neck massage to stimulate circulation and increase relaxation. I juts wanted to nap, it was that good!

Step 8: Wash + Condition

Your hair is washed for a second time with that menthol shampoo, that’s super cooling and calming. A conditioner is then applied and rinsed off. Your hair is wrapped and ready to be dried.

– FINAL TOUCH –

Step 9: Blow Dry

Your hair is blow dried on a medium heat and you can immediately start to see and feel the difference.

Step 10: Serum

A serum is applied from root to tip (not scalp) that is specific to your hair woes.

And Voila! you’re finally done 🙂



Review

OMG you guys! My hair is so soft and so smooth! Hair fall has gone down by 50% literally and I cannot believe this happened in one sitting (that’s not even a claim they make, but it happened). For real! WHAT? HOW? It absolutely does what it says and the sceptic in me is still processing the efficiency of this service. I highly recommend it!

The most anti-climactic before and after of all time 😀 The lighting is different that’s why the effect is not quite as obvious, but my hair got smoother and shinier, believe me!

There are a few things you should probably know:

  1. It’s a unisex salon which means both men and women with hair issues can find a solution under one roof.
  2. It starts at about Rs. 1,400/- for boy cut hair and the price varies depending on hair length. For my mega long hair it costs around Rs. 2,500/-.
  3. The recommended course of treatment for the average person is once a week for the first 5-6 weeks then fortnightly after that. For people with severe conditions, it varies depending on specific requirement.
  4. It’s supposedly effective for people with hairfall due to PCOS, stress, chemo and radiation therapy as well.
  5. One thing that affirms my belief that this treatment works is that, no matter your issue, the formula used remains unchanged. The dosage and frequency may vary and it may be used in multiple permutations and combinations with other products from the Origin line, but the herbal masque itself is the same for all.
  6. Also, heads up, it colours your hair a bit. It’s not the typical orange-red of henna, but my dark brown hair is a bit lighter than it was before. Some people claim it covers grays but since I don’t have any, I can’t confirm that. It also mildly smells of henna (it’s probably one of the 21 ingredients) so if you have a sensitive nose, you can be prepared (it’s very very mild, though).

I hope you like this post! 🙂
