Hair to There – From Frizz to Fantastic!


Úde jab jab zulfein teri’,

Ýeh Reshmi Zulfon ka..’

Yeh reshmi zulfe yeh sharbati ankhe’

The common attribute for the three songs mentioned above is the word ‘Zulf’ (meaning hair). Yes, hair has featured prominently in a number of romantic Hindi songs and poetry. Not so in case of English songs or poetry…maybe the reference to hair as a romantic expression is more specific to Indian culture.

Hair also finds reference to Indian mythology. River Ganges was released from Lord Shiva’s hair to meet the needs of the country according to Hindu mythology.

But why all this fuss about hair? The simple reason is that by the end of the week hair turns frizzy and we had gathered to find a solution for dealing with the frizz of hair.


#FrizzFreeHair Dabur Vatika Indiblogger Meet


The blogger meet was organized by Indiblogger jointly with Dabur Vatika at BJ Hall, in Vile Parle, Mumbai on 10th October 2015. It was a unique platform that brought together the corporate world with the bloggers, who are the influencers as well as consumers, and a number of management students from NMIMS, who were present to witness a product launch. Changing trends with changing times!!

Hopes ran high. The theme of the day was green. This was my first indiblogger meet ever, and it sure started with a bang (eh a band). Here’s the rocking Indiband that got all grooving to the lively tune of Pink Flyod. 

FrizzFreeHair Meet



There was a quick round of introduction, which helped us to connect the blogger with her blog. 

Thereafter came in the presentation by the Dabur. No, it wasn’t a boring one but full of such tid bits and insights such as the ones mentioned above and a glimpse to how hairstyles have changed over decades. Dabur helped us to understand what frizz is, the factors such as climate, humidty, blow drying, chemical treatments that cause it.   

With their years of research, Dabur surely seem to understand how to care for hair care.

Nice smell of jasmine filled up the hall, as they unveiled the potion (Dabur Vatika Jasmine oil) that would help us to make a leap from frizzy to fantastic hair.


Oiling gains relevance again! 🙂

Many of the bloggers shared effective hair care tips. There were hair ruffling games, a chance to make friendship with like-minded bloggers.


Social media has crept into our lives. So there was a live tweet session with questions to be answered on twitter with the hashtag #FrizzFreehair.  You could check out hair care tips on twitter at @Oilopedia. Yes, oiling is relevant again.

Then of course, there were the goodies – a bag with Jasmine hair oil, their Coconut Oil and a Philips Hair straightener. There was a champi station too!

A sumptuous lunch was arranged for.. I left with the pass to frizz free hair and equipped to try out some different hair styling.

I have been using Dabur Vatika Jasmine since the last one week and am proud to say I simply love the non-sticky feel and light sweet fragrance of it.  

I can let Dabur Vatika Jasmine take care of the frizz while I take care of all other things.
