How are you all? I’m writing again after 15-20 days, I couldn’t resist myself from writing for IMBB :D. I love this blog so much that I can’t even express. I have my MBA exams going and I promised mom that I will study and study only ;D But still with three exams left, I could not stop myself from writing for IMBB.
My hair serum was over so I wanted to buy a new one, I mean try a new one :p . When I reached my local shop and asked for hair serum, he introduced me to a new baby, Jovees hair serum. I really like Jovees Product. They have never disappointed me. I bought few Jovees Product and will post reviews for them too very soon 🙂

My Experience with Jovees Hair Serum Grape Seed & Almond:
Firstly, lets talk about its packaging. The whole bottle was sealed in a plastic thin sheet. Packaging is very filmsy, transparent plastic bottle with a silver plastic neck and a white colour pump at the top secured with a plastic transparent cover or lid. This lid is tightly secured and does not come off easily.You have to apply little pressure while opening the lid, which is actually a good thing because this way it will not spill in your bag. In brief, it is travel-friendly. Okay now about its texture, I would say very thick. Very thick but non- sticky and non-greasy texture and consistency. It is not runny like L’Oreal or Matrix ones. Texture of this serum really scared me at first when I was going to use it since I had bought it only for its natural ingredients.
I divided my damp hair into two sections, and took less than a coin-sized amount on my palm. I had to rub the serum quite vigorously between my palms so that I can easily spread it on my hair. I had to do this for both sections of my hair. After application, it gets absorbed into the hair very nicely. It does not give a greasy or oily feeling on the hair. Infact, it feels light on the hair. I use this serum daily even though I wash my hair every third day. It has a strong smell, which many people will not like; I hated it for the first time as well. I was like ewwww!! But that smell faded away after a couple of minutes. Well, that is a good thing; and now finally, the result, yes it definitely adds shine and gloss to the hair, makes it really soft and smooth.
I would say it works best for 7-8 hours after that you can feel your hair is dry again. Well by this time, I am at home so I avoid using it again in the evenings. It makes hair manageable to some extent. I would say its an average product for me. I bought it after reading the ingredient list and I definitely don’t mind trying herbal or natural products on my hair and skin. Ladies who have bouncy, curly or heavy hair can try this one for sure, it will not weigh down your hair. But ladies who have thin hair, better avoid this one as chances are there that it might weigh down your hair because of its thick consistency.
