The paste from 6 leaves of neem, the whites from 3 eggs, the juice of amla, the teardrops of 7 unicorns, and what else? We’ve read about every magic potion that your hair needs, particularly when the weather turns wet and particularly if you live in Gurgaon, dealing with the tough love your tresses get from its hard water.
The only problem is, we forget to soak the methi seeds and we drank up the beer. So what happens to that magical hair pack you swore you’d get packing on the weekend?
After scouring all of Gurgaon’s phases, we have come upon the charms of Anju Anand’s Bella Vita. Nothing of a Madonna, Anju runs a spa and salon in Sector 54 with modern facilities, and some traditional herbal secrets.
Unlike other Gurgaon salons that exclaim wildly over the malnourished state of our hair and go on to suggest synthetic treatments, Anju insists you try to let your hair detox at least once with her proprietary Protein Pack. Made at home, it includes all the good stuff we’re supposed to regularly use, like Bhringarag, lime seeds, methi seeds, amla, camphor, mustard powder, aloe vera, banana, honey, neem, and a base of egg or curd, depending on your hair type; although it’s probably their ‘secret ingredient’ which makes it smell as good as it does.
