Because I am a Girl, and a VAIN one at that

Today, I spotted a single white hair hidden amongst black. At risk of sounding like a drama queen/ vain/ naive/ silly woman.. I was devastated! Rather, I am devastated. I suppose the time's finally come.. to let go of shiny black and embrace shiny white... BUT WHYYYYYYYY MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

Do tell me, what did you feel like when you found you're first white? And if you haven't, do me a favor and don't say anything at all!

Hey dont panic.
Start eating Amla. You get them in supermarkets. Sweet amla pieces in packets.
You will not have any more grey and what grey you have will turn black. Have 4 pieces daily.
Most people dont realize what you eat is more important than what you apply - both skin and hair.

Also, soak almond - 6 pieces - overnight in water, peel off skin in the morning and eat. good for skin, hair, memory, heart....

Never apply hair colour, dye - it will lead to hair loss. stay away from all chemicals.
Oil your hair. Leave it for 1 hour or more and then apply shikakai powder (Meera, Raaga) to wash instead of shampoo.

Sid: Really? No whites????

Anon: Amen to that!

Sowmya: Of all the comments you have ever made, this one was the most touching. I will totally follow the regimen... but I am totally in awe with the fix it solution, nothing calms someone as much as a fix it solution. thank you tons sow!

As you said, there is no etiquette for grief. I won't say a word.

i loved my first immature white hair that turned in some 4 years back. . Now there are a couple of them sprinkled here and there and I am not even 30. (ok on the verge of being 30 I should say.) But my worry is a small part of my beard that is turning white, that means frequent shaving...

I have had more than my fair share og whiten hairs and am not near 30 for another couple of years... but i know that with so much stress they are bound to come one or the other day... so resigned to fates :D

Vimal: You have no blacks too...*stab* *stab* *stab*

Harish: I think salt and pepper is good on a man, somehow increases the quotient for sex appeal a la Richard Gere. At least I always thought that, would you agree? It's nice to know you embraced the white.. and well hey, something very unnatural if you had salt and pepper head and a totally black beard, no?

Aash: Same thing as Harish, isn't it good for a guy to have the whites. Also because it's stress related is it directly proportional to a man's success?

Where to get Rosemary, Sage, Basil, Thyme in Bangalore?













There was a time in Bangalore when finding exotic herbs involved a trip to some remote farm in Ooty and finding out their supply route to Bangalore.

Thankfully, much has changed.

Look what I found at Namdharis..namely the one on M.M road, off Mosque Road, Fraser Town.


I felt like a kid in a candy store! Recipes to what I've used them for, to follow!! 

I recall seeing a collection of the same, in 1 MG Road, opposite Taj Vivanta as well, in case that is closer to you.

PS. I also found thyme, but I forgot to photograph it. Got all the herbs + salad leaves for Rs. 105


Off Products Available in India: Not Tested on Animals- India

A while ago, I turned vegan. It took me three months, to turn myself out of it, but I can safely say, that that experience changed the person in me. It started off with this documentary  and hit me hard. Possibly, owning a dog made a difference, the fact that I know him and have realized that 'they' deserve better.

Anyhow, I've never looked at a piece of chicken the same way. I couldn't keep myself vegan, so I've done the best that I can do, given my shoddy will power. It's not much, but it is something, and honestly, it's not debatable. No camel, elephant rides. No zoos or circuses, wool, leather, feathers or shells. I'm leaving them alone, materially.

And the most recent change has been with cosmetics and toiletries. I was luckier when I started off a couple of months ago, that I am now. The stock of products that I've had, has run out, and where before I was looking for shampoo/conditioner/body wash, I find myself looking for kajal, mascarra a…

L'Oreal Creme Gloss- Dark Chocolate (323)

I thought I'd try my hand at a product review & the product in question is the new shade 323 (Dark Chocolate) from L'Oreal.

How I bought it: At Health & Glow

$$$: Rs 425

Comments: There were plenty of 'test for allergy' warnings all over the box. Was kind of hard to miss the warning, but I did not heed it as I had used the product (not the same shade) before. Application was easy, and the instructions are very simple and can be followed to the letter. The smell, the texture and all the tools provided were perfect, very honestly, I love using L'Oreal hair colour more because of the ease, as I can do it myself at home. After washing out the dye, the hair was also glossy and bouncy, which made me feel less guilty about colouring it.

What I was not happy with, was the end result: the colour. It was very close to the actual shade of my hair, which I'd always thought was black. The product seemed to make my hair blacker than before, as opposed to the chocolate …
