Darvi Anti-Dandruff Hair Oil Review: Permanent Results With 54 Ayurvedic Ingredients

Darvi Anti-Dandruff Hair Oil Review Permanent Results With 54 Ayurvedic Ingredients

To get rid of dandruff, the remedies that most people like me depend on are the usual dandruff treatments. Shampoos, creams, lotions, hair-masks. And they’ve all just not got rid of the problem.

My flakes and the itchiness, returned in a few days of not using an anti-dandruff shampoo. Before Royal Indulgence Darvi, I used an anti-dandruff shampoo at least two times a week. I was always trying to hide it, and keep others away from knowing that I have such a scalp condition.

When I heard Royal Indulgence Darvi Anti-Dandruff Oil could permanently diminish your dandruff, I was thrilled. In just 10 applications, up to 70% of your dandruff symptoms are to permanently disappear. And in a month, 90% – never to return in it’s former severity.

 

Darvi Anti-Dandruff Hair Oil Review

The hidden power behind Ayurveda: Why Royal Indulgence Darvi Works

Age lifestyle, infection and allergies are just the tip of the iceberg. Most all dandruff remedies today do not treat all of the causes of dandruff.

Royal Indulgence Darvi is uniquely made of 54 herb and plant extracts! Each has a particular purpose, addressing all of the dandruff-causing factors at once. These 8 especially vital components in Darvi ensure you can say goodbye to dandruff for good.

Darvi clears, protects and nourishes your scalp. It basically acts as a 360 degree scalp remedy

  • The ingredients neutralize the Malassezia fungus causing your dandruff
  • Calm the scalp itchiness and irritation
  • Hydrate any and all dryness
  • Give you a long-term, permanent relief from dandruff

I also had an easy time using Darvi, as it took no more than 15 minutes of use before I slept!

OUR TOP 9 REASONS WHY DARVI IS BETTER THAN ANY OTHER DANDRUFF TREATMENT TODAY

  1. Provides long-lasting relief from dandruff. Don’t accept using potentially harmful synthetic shampoos and treatments twice or thrice a week. Use Royal Indulgence Darvi only once or twice a month, after the initial 7-week intensive treatment period.
  1. Targets ALL the main causes of dandruff. Whether you have it from an infection, dry scalp, or bodily factors. All the 50+ herbal extracts and oils treat dandruff from all angles. ALL problems solved, for much more than just 3 days.
  1. Intensive, one-time treatment. Instead of applying damagingly weak treatments for years, completely get rid of 70% of the problem in the 10-day sitting. 90% of your dandruff GONE in 30 days.
  1. Most effective, gentlest way to get a flake-free head. Other non-natural solutions strip hair of oil, nutrients, and moisture. Natural Sulphur is extremely effective and very gentle at removing dandruff. No damaging your scalp, only destroy your worries.
  1. Recurrence is greatly diminished. As all main causes are treated, dandruff will NEVER return like it used to. No 3-4 treatment applications every week. Only once or twice a month after the initial usage.
  1. Moisturize and nourish your scalp. Olive and Coconut oil richly moisturize your scalp without blocking your pores. Karanja oil, Bakuchi, and Tuvarak heal inflammation, itching, and add ensure you have a healthy scalp. For the first time – kill the infection and solve your dry scalp issue. NO FLAKES in sight!
  1. Save on money. You don’t have to buy ineffective treatments frequently. Beyond 2 or 3 months, only twice per month usage is needed. That means eventually, ONE bottle will last you for many, many months.
  1. Zero side-effects. This is entirely all-natural. Made from fresh, quality, purified ingredients. Cannot affect skin, scalp, or hair in any adverse way. Colored hair can use it. People with allergies to Sulphur shouldn’t use this.
  1. Less hair fall, stronger hair, more shine. This unique blend of Ayurvedic ingredients also reduces hair fall by removing majority of your dandruff problem. The result: healthy scalp and hair follicles that can grow strong, shiny hair.

Dentologik Advanced Oral Care – Review

Everyone wants clean and bright teeth

Everyone wants clean and bright teeth but no one really likes to take all that effort. Dirty yellow teeth are a big no from everyone and the dentist visits are nothing less than a nightmare. The costs that these dental hygiene add up to more than you would actually want to spend.

To take care of oral issues and maintain good oral hygiene, brushing and flossing are the two most basic activities required. There has been a spike in the number of oral irrigators available in the market. These irrigators are proven to do twice the efficient cleaning as compared to the traditional string floss.

One such oral irrigator is Dentologik which claims to be better than any other competitor out there like the Panasonic Oral Irrigator or the Oral Care Smart Water Flosser. We tested Dentologik ourselves and the results did leave us impressed. Read on to know our thoughts about it.

About Dentologik Hi Speed Dental Flosser

Dentologik is India’s 1st FDA approved hi-speed dental flosser which gives you brighter, cleaner teeth in just 1 minute! It easily removes upto 99.9% plaque from treated areas.

The Performance

The Performance

The device gets fully charged in about 8 hours and is then ready for use. I filled it with mouthwash as I prefer a more minty feeling. It can be used with water too. After filling the water I attached the nozzle to it and the device was ready to go.

Once switched on, it starts leaving an aerated stream of water/mouthwash which effectively cleans between the teeth and massages the gums too. I have sensitive teeth so I chose the soft mode for my flossing and it was perfect for me. It roughly took me around a minute to clean all my teeth and gums.

I found Dentologik absolutely easy to use and loved how clean my teeth looked and felt in just a few uses. Once charged it lasted for about a week even if I used it twice a day sometimes.

5 Reasons Why Dentologik Is Better Than Panasonic Oral Irrigator

  1. It provides you with the option of 3 modes of cleaning whereas the Panasonic variant costs much more and provides just 2 modes of cleaning.
  2. Dentologik comes with 2 extra replaceable nozzles unlike the Panasonic oral irrigator.
  3. Panasonic oral irrigator is battery operated which just adds to your expense. Dentologik on the other hand is absolutely rechargeable.
  4. Dentologik comes with a 30 day no questions asked refund policy. If you are not satisfied with the product, you can claim a full refund within 30 days!
  5. Dentologik has a much more ergonomic design as compared to Panasonic. It is easy to handle and feels absolutely comfortable in the hand.

Overall Rating: 9.5/10

Dentologik does fairly deliver everything that it claims and one can themselves see and feel the difference in their oral hygiene once they use it for some time. It is definitely a one time investment which will reduce your dental expenses a lot.

My First Experience With The Unique RapidSteam 2000 Garment Steamer

image-7

 

While the clothes you wear might not be the right way to judge who you are, more often than not they are. It is not what you are wearing that matters, as much as how you carry it off, and let me tell you at the outset that creases don’t make for good first impressions. My job entails me to travel a lot, within the city and outside too. I am in an out of meetings, and it is so important that my hair and makeup is always in place, and my clothes are neat throughout the day. After all, I meet some very important people. While I can take a small break to check on how my hair and makeup is, the real problem is how to keep my clothes crease-free throughout the day. My quest to find a solution, introduced me to the RapidSteam 2000.

At first, I was a bit hesitant to buy it. I wasn’t sure about the quality or the brand. But when I saw that they offered a 100% money back guarantee, if I was not satisfied with the product, I saw no harm in trying it, and I went ahead and ordered the product. It arrived in just about 3 working days, and it was neatly packed in a transparent box. Inside, was this turquoise blue and white handle like object. It had a water pocket, that can hold unto 100 ml of water, and when I switched on the product it heated up in 25 seconds flat. What I was amazed at is how handy the device was. It is small, and it’s German design helps you hold it and work with it, with great ease. I then picked up a crumpled top from the bin of dirty clothes to test. I was static at the results. Even when the iron was about 5 cm away from the piece of cloth, the creases ironed out with a blink of the eye. A top is light, and easy to work with, so I decided to test it out on my trousers. I was happy with the results.

5

While all this sounds great, it still doesn’t explain what the product is and does. So let me jot down all the pros and cons, so that you can decide for yourself if the device is worth owning or not.

The Minor Negatives 

  1. The Rapid Steam 2000 is sold at Rs. 4999, which at the beginning seems a little too much, but considering how much it can do, it is not a bad price.
  1. The device heats up and then cools down after about 10 minutes of high pressure steam which takes some getting used to.

The Big Positives 

  1. The device is light (approximately 600 grams), portable, and so easy to use. It takes less than two minutes to iron your garment.
  1. It is rechargeable, so you don’t have to keep spending on batteries. This is a one time investment.
  1. The device comes with a 1-year warranty. So you don’t have to worry if it doesn’t work well, you can always get it replaced.
  1. The 30-day money back guarantee is a bonus. You don’t have to worry about not liking the product. If it doesn’t work you can always give it back, and get a 100% refund of your money, no questions asked. (But I am so sure you won’t have to use it, considering how amazing the product is.)
  1. The device comes with a built-in NANO Polymer Filter that purifies the water and softens it. This prolongs the life of the device and reduces the calcium deposits.
  1. The Heat Sync Technology helps the iron to heat up in 25 seconds flat. The high pressure steam lasts for 10- minutes and helps remove even the most stubborn crease.
  1. The Rapid Steam 2000 comes with an in-built EPS or electronic pump system that helps reduce the water spills.
  1. It comes with a 6.5 feet charging cable that makes charging so easy. It has a voltage of 220-240V and a power of 850W.

I think this product is apt for every household. Because not only will it make your daily laundry easier, you can also carry it with you every where. It makes neatness 24X7 a possibility! I would give this product a rating of 8.5/10. You’ve just got to try it to believe it.

5 Ways To Lose That Tummy Fat Fast

Ways To Lose That Tummy Fat Fast

You slip into your favorite pair of jeans, suck in your breath, and button in up. As you slowly exhale, your tummy starts to push against the fabric, and the zipper line becomes visible and strained. As always, you ignore the ever-increasing bulge that is threatening to burst out of your pants now, blaming it on the last binging session you went through. Stop! This is not your fault. As we grow older, our metabolism starts to slow down. What used to be effective before is effective no more. So, please stop the self-hate and make these changes to your lifestyle, and you may even have to shop for skinny jeans two sizes smaller!

1. Eat Healthy

 We are not advocating a strict diet where you feel that you are surviving on grass and water. No sir! Just make a better choice every time you stuff something in your mouth. Make deals with yourself – ok, I can have that cupcake if I finish my spinach and broccoli salad. (Most of the times, you will not even want that cake!) Include healthy fats in your diet. Try to get your carbs and protein from healthy sources, like fruits, vegetables, and fish and meat. Try to eat home cooked meals – no matter what you tell yourself, store-bought food is NOT healthy.

2. Drink Water

Drink water. It suppresses the appetite, and makes you eat lesser. Also, most of the times, you wolf down food thinking you are hungry. But, the truth is you are actually thirsty. So, drink, drink, and drink, then drink some more! In addition to fat loss, it will also make your skin clear, pretty, and flawless.

3. Try Supplements

5 Ways To Lose That Tummy Fat Fast

 No, they are not going to cause harm – that’s just a myth. You need certain elements for your body to function like a well-oiled machine. So, don’t ditch those vitamins and mineral capsules, or the much-doubted whey. Some products, such as GCB70, even help to revive your metabolism, facilitating quick weight loss. It burns the sugar and fat in the body and slows down the release of sugar in the bloodstream., thus decreasing your waist circumference effectively. It’s not wrong to give your body a little help to undo all the damage you have done to it all these years.

4. Exercise

Yes, we know. You never had to workout to maintain your weight. But, things change. The theory behind this is the more muscles you build, the easier it will be for you to lose weight. Thanks to a higher metabolism. Cycle, jog, swim, whatever. You can even do yoga. But a little something is required to transform your body and lose that muffin top for good.

5. Drink Green Coffee

 Yes, that’s not a typo! We do mean green coffee – green coffee bean extract that is. It is absolutely amazing. It has strong antioxidant properties and the cholorogenic acids present in it absorb free oxygen radicals in the body and also avert hydroxyl radicals, both of which cause cell degradation. Drinking  green coffee bean extract reduces the blood sugar levels. It also makes you lose weight effortlessly.

Take care of yourself. These steps will help you be a better you, and you will not only look better but feel better as well. There is no reason to suffer the wraths of a slowing metabolism. Combat it and flaunt a 28-inch waist once again!

How to Take Garcinia Cambogia

Losing Weight with Garcinia Cambogia

Eat healthy and get active. Taking this supplement alone will not cause you to lose weight unless you also change your diet and increase your level of physical activity. You don’t necessarily need a special diet. Eating nutritious meals and snacks throughout the day is a great place to start. You should also remove sweets, processed food, and sweetened soft drinks in order to lose weight.

  • You don’t need to start running marathons to get active. Start with smaller steps that will increase your activity level, help you move around more, and keep you healthy. Begin with walking, gardening, hiking, swimming, playing golf, or playing tennis. Then, work your way up to higher level activities.

Avoid high fiber foods. There have been no scientific studies to date that prove garcinia cambogia can help you lose weight. But, a number of studies have suggested that if you use garcinia while avoiding certain foods, you may increase your weight loss, especially around your waist. You should limit your intake of high fiber foods, particularly around the time you take the garcinia.

  • This means you don’t want to eat the high fiber foods with every meal because you take garcinia 30-60 minutes before meals. To get your daily fiber intake, eat high fiber snacks outside of this window.
  • These snacks include nuts, granola bars, kale chips, fruit, especially those with edible rinds like apples, cherries, and plums, and raw vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, and celery.

Limit fatty or sugary foods. You should also avoid foods that have too much fat or too much sugar. This includes fast food, chips and dips, cakes, pies, bacon, mayonnaise, candy, and chocolate. These all have a high fat or sugar content, and some of them have both.

  • You should also limit you intake of breads, potatoes, pasta, and sauces thickened with wheat flour.
  • Focus more on fish , lean meats such as turkey, chicken, and lean beef, and leafy green vegetables such as spinach and arugula.

Understanding the Risks of Taking Garcinia Cambogia

Recognize the side effects. The reported side effects for garcinia cambogia include dizziness, dry mouth, headaches, an upset stomach, and diarrhea. If you see any of these signs after taking your supplement, stop taking it until you can see a doctor.

  • Garcinia has not been tested in children, in pregnant women, or on women who are breastfeeding. The use of garcinia in these women is not recommended.

Understand drug interactions. There are reports that garcinia may interact poorly with certain medications. These include medications for asthma, allergies, and diabetes. According to the reports, the garcinia make these drugs less effective.

  • It may also interfere with blood thinners, psychiatric medicines, pain medicines, iron supplements, and statins, which are drugs used to lower cholesterol.
  • Consult your physician if you are using any of these medications before starting garcinia.
  • If you experience any of these side effects, immediately stop taking the garcinia and contact your physician for advice.[

Be aware of a serious risk. Garcinia is believed to increase serotonin levels and when taken with antidepressant medications called SSRIs, can lead to serotonin syndrome. With serotonin syndrome, the levels of serotonin are much higher than normal. This can lead to neurologic symptoms such as stuttering, restlessness, agitation, loss of coordination, and hallucinations. It can also cause an increased heart rate and blood pressure, fever, and diarrhea.

  • There has been a single case reported of a woman who was taking garcinia along with the class of antidepressant medications called SSRIs. She developed the neurological symptoms of serotonin syndrome. If you experience any of these symptoms, stop taking any supplement and contact your healthcare professional immediately.

Understanding Garcinia Cambogia

Know the origins. Garcinia cambogia is a tropical fruit native to Indonesia. It is also known as brindleberry, Malabar tamarind, and kudam puli. It looks like a small, light green pumpkin and is used in Indonesia for cooking. It has a sour taste.

Learn the benefits. Garcinia contains a type of citric acid, hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which appears to encourage weight loss by regulating the release of serotonin and the uptake of blood sugar. It also increases the oxidation of existing fats and decreasing the synthesis of new fat. While it is not very clear yet, this may mean that Garcinia may increase the biochemical use of fats for energy and decrease the amounts of new fat that is made.

  • Serotonin is a type of neurotransmitter, which is a chemical messenger between nerves and other types of cells. It is related to feelings of happiness, moods, and a sense of well-being
  • Studies have been conducted to determine whether garcinia supplements encourage weight loss in people who are overweight, and the results have not been clear cut. The upshot is that concentrated Garcinia may help people lose weight, especially when combined with a healthy diet and exercise. But there is no scientific evidence showing it actually has an effect.

Know the issues related to supplements. Since garcinia is dietary supplement, it is not subject to review by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This means that the FDA cannot approve garcinia according to its health and safety standards.

  • Always use caution when taking dietary supplements, and be sure to check with your doctor before use.
  • Whenever buying a supplement, make as certain as possible that the company follows Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and has been in business for some time.
  • Check out the company website. They should state that they follow GMP and should have some information about the company, their philosophy, and their company mission.

Taking Garcinia Cambogia

Learn the correct dose. From some early studies, a safe dose of Garcinia appears to be up to 2800 mg per day. But, it’s not known what may happen if you take these amounts, so you should stay well below that dose.[12] Once you have found a good place to buy the supplement, you need to understand how much of the HCA you need to take. The dose of HCA should be about 1500 mg per day, though this varies from supplement to supplement.

  • Make sure you follow the manufacturer’s instructions and you consult a knowledgeable healthcare professional before starting.

Take garcinia as a pill. Garcinia comes in two different forms. The first is a pill form, either in a tablet or capsule. If you buy the supplement as a pill, take the recommended dosage of garcinia as a tablet or capsule with water. Take the pill about 30-60 minutes before each meal.

  • In general, garcinia is taken three times a day. This means that each pill should be 500 mg. That way, you stay within your daily dosage suggestions.

Consider liquid garcinia. The second form that you can take of garcinia is liquid. The liquid form of garcinia usually recommends taking 1-2 drops before every meal, but the amount can vary based on the dropper or concentration. Take the drop or drops under your tongue and let them stay for a minute or so. Then, have your regular meal 30-60 minutes later.

  • Before you take the liquid form, ask your pharmacist or a knowledgeable healthcare professional how much garcinia is in every drop for the particular kind you have. You should also ask how many drops would equal a total of about 1500 mg of garcinia every day. Once you have the total number of drops, divide that by three and take that amount before each meal.

 

 

The Alkaline Foods You Need To Nourish Your Skin All Winter

the-alkaline-foods-you-need-to-nourish-your-skin-all-winter

Each time we eat an acid-forming food, our body needs to bring our blood pH levels back to a state of equilibrium, and it does this by releasing alkaline-rich minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium into our bloodstream.

The trouble is that if we aren’t eating enough alkaline-forming foods to make this process happen naturally, then the body needs to locate and use those minerals from elsewhere in the body. So it looks to our bones, teeth, and organs and finds and utilizes the minerals found there, which may result in a compromised immune system and decrease in energy levels.

Eating an alkaline diet will help keep your body and pH levels in balance. In your body, blood pH levels need to maintain a slightly alkaline level in order to keep you strong and healthy. You can maintain this balance by eating more alkaline-forming foods such as fruits, veggies, nuts, and herbs.

As a general rule, stick to these tips and you’ll be on your way to alkalinity!

Keep hydrated.

Sipping warm water throughout the day with a squeeze of lemon will alkalize the body and warm you up in the process. Once in the body lemon becomes alkaline, so drop a slice into your water for a wonderful pick-me-up drink that’ll keep you hydrated and help detoxify your liver. Try and choose filtered water if possible!

Eat the orange spectrum.

Brightly colored orange foods such as apricots, carrots, winter squash and pumpkin are all great to dive into this winter. Flavonoids, the natural pigments that give plants their color, have antioxidant, alkalizing, and cell-protecting, properties. All root vegetables will provide some alkalizing benefits, yet carrots offer a special punch all on their own. Try using them in your next green juice, raw in dishes of all kinds, or even roast them in the oven slightly to add a caramelized flavor. Sweet potatoes also provide similar benefits.

Load up on garlic.

Garlic is a moderately alkalizing immunity-boosting superstar that’s available all year round. One clove of garlic contains more than 100 sulfuric compounds that are powerful enough to wipe out bacteria and infection. Adding garlic to your meals or drinking garlic tea will provide you with an injection of empowering and immune-boosting ammunition this winter season.

Try turmeric.

Turmeric, a pungent spice, which is highly alkalizing to the body, contains curcumin, a compound that increases the level of immunity-boosting proteins in our bodies. These proteins help fight bacteria and viruses when they try to attack. Turmeric is also a natural anti-inflammatory and painkiller, an added benefit if you’re actively fighting a flu virus.

Sip soups.

Use vegetables instead of adding stock cubes or prepared casserole mixes, which are usually full of unnecessary additives and excess oils. Soups are a wonderful winter version of salads, and you can get really creative once you have made a base of celery, onions, garlic and peppers with some stock; then you can throw in whatever alkalizing vegetables you have on hand and make new variations as you like!
