We all dream of healthy shiny hair and we all have our own struggles to keep them in a good manageable condition. I keep getting a lot of questions on my hair care routine on instagram ( @planetbeauties14 because I am the most active there ) and if you are a regular reader, you must have observed that I don’t have many hair care post on the blog, not even reviews, so I thought of talking about my current favorite hair care product today which is Elixir Shop Linus Hair Strengthener Serum that is specifically formulated to target hair fall issues. So let’s begin …
Price : INR 800
Quantity : 15 ml
ELIXIR SHOP claims
Linus uses a blend of essential oils that are known for their hair strengthening properties. You mix a few drops of the serum with your shampoo and massage it into the scalp, all the way down to the ends. In just a few washes, the oils will strengthen the hair from the root to the tip and reduce breakage and hair fall. The amount of the serum you use depends on the length of your hair.
How to Use
- Take appropriate number of drops of the serum in the palm of your hand, add shampoo, blend and apply. Lather well.
- Keep shampoo on for a minute, then rinse and condition as normal.
Short hair: 4-6 drops
Medium length: 6-8 drops
Long hair: 10-12 drops
A 30ml bottle will last 4-5 months for medium length hair.
Elixir shop serum comes in a glass bottle along with a dropper that is fixed to its cap. A 30 ml product for 800 bucks might sound a little pricey but for a serum that is completely organic, natural and shows results, I wouldn’t mind spending on it at all. Since it has a dropper, you can not go wrong with the quantity as you have entire control on it but the bottom being made of glass makes it fragile hence it is not travel safe.
This is a transparent serum with medium viscosity that is highly concentrated and you need only a few drops for the product to start working on the scalp. I have long hair so I usually go for 14 drops in one single wash. It has a strong yet refreshing scent which leaves your hair smelling great post hair wash. One point to mention here is, you must make sure that you are not diluting the shampoo with water because with that, you are just spilling over half the product for no good. This was one of the mistakes that I was doing when I started using it for the first time, but then I realized that I am doing something wrong and this was it. Basically the process to use it is pretty simple. All you wanna do is mix a few drops (as per your length) into the shampoo and apply it to the scalp. Next, you can either massage it or leave it on for a minute or 2 and then rinse it off along with the shampoo. Post this you can condition your hair as you normally do and thats it. I have been using it since 2 months now and I see a very gradual but slow turn around time with this serum with respect to my hair fall concern, however what I love this for, is that it leaves my hair shiny and smooth with every single wash. I see that the texture of my hair has improved drastically and the frizziness is going away with continuous usage. My hair looks healthy and lustrous although the hair fall concern still persists.
Overall, I am extremely happy with how this product has helped me improving my hair quality however if you are specifically looking out for something to prevent hair fall, then you must keep in mind that the results show up slowly. Maybe with a few more washes I might be able to tell how I feel about its performance related to strengthening of the hair. Also, keep in mind that it is not necessary that if a product that did not work for me , it wont work for you either. We all react differently to products and it usually takes 3 months or more for any hair care product to start showing the results , because that is the cycle of hair growth. I definitely recommend you to check this product out as it really makes a difference to the hair texture. I personally love it!
