It smells good enough to eat!

(10 jars of vatika hair frosting)
If you open up a tub of Betty Crocker Vanilla frosting, you would also be inhaling the scent of the Vatika Frosting from Hairveda. Vatika frosting is without a doubt an oil, the main ingredient is pure coconut oil. Much like coconut oil even in a solid form once you touch the product, it begins to instantly melt on your fingers. Here are the main Vatika ingredients: Coconut oil, Amla extract, Henna extract, Lemon extract. Each ingredient is supposed to work to strengthen your tresses. This product can be used as a pre poo and that is exactly how I use the oil. I allow the product to sit on my hair (usually with some conditioner added to the mix) and it works well, leaving my hair very soft. I tried to use the vatika frosting once as a leave in but I can only do that when I know I am close to my wash day because it is very oily. It is important to use only a little of this product if you plan on using it as a leave in. Don't fret, the vanilla frosting scent does not last long so you will not walk around town smelling like cake frosting. (If you click on the first vatika frosting picture you can see that just sitting on the shelf some of it is no longer a solid, but putting it in a cool place will solidify the product again.)
If you dont feel like mixing your own ingredients for your pre poo, this $10.00 product may work for you. And if you don't mind oil on your hair, vatika is also a leave in product.

Here is a little video to show you what the vatika frosting looks like.

Next up is the head to toe Whipped Shea Aloe Mousse, also from Hairveda. This product looks like melted marshmellows but it does not have that sticky feeling. It is however way too heavy for my hair, I strictly use this product as a moisturizer for my body. It is thick, creamy, and gives off great shine. For my hair I couldn't really tell if it left it moisturized because it just felt so weighed down that I couldn't get past that aspect of it to really investigate the moisturizing properties.
As an aloe vera based body butter I may get this product again. You will pay $26.00 for a 16 oz tub or you can select the 4oz jar which costs 7.00.

P.S. Housewives of ATL news...You may have heard Lisa ( the real estate broker) mention that her last marriage which wasnt an ideal union. It turns out that her ex hubby is the famous singer Keith Sweat. Keith has had full custody of his kids and will not allow their two children to appear on the Housewives show. I got this information from BETs Black Carpet show last night.
Have a great weekend everyone.

Calming Corners said...

Thanks for such great reviews! They are so honest...I know I always say that but it is well appreciated

Lavendar said...

You are absolutely right PJD! I love Hairveda products and they smell delish. Not only that, they have helped my hair grow to great lengths!

Gigi said...

I just bought the frosting. Cant wait.

TravelDiva said...

Hey PJD,

Total sidenote--what are your thoughts on Ambi products. I've used some in the past, but sporadically. I've decided to commit (the new commercials are persuasive as I like the idea that the products are tested on women of color) and have gotten pretty much the whole line. Have you done a post on this already that I missed?

@ B it is delicious
@Anonymous I posted my hair regimen in todays post...check it out.
@frugalista it smells so nice.
@Amina I can't wait to see waht you think of the products.
@Lauren pleae let me know how you like that spa hair treatment. It is now a staple for it!
@ Justme this product is not listed as a body product but hey who's stopping you? lol. It would be pretty oily so you just can't use too much.
CC thanks
@Lavendar your hair looks great. I have to take some hair pics soon too...maybe after my touch up.
@GiGI please let me know what you think of it.
@Traveldiva I know I did a post on the facial wash in the apst but recently I purchased the exfoliating wash and the body lotion. I think overall the line is ok and like you in the past I used the product sporadically. I will do an official post on ambi this week...(if i dont forget :-).) ANd I need to start doing the bridal posts...I haven't forgotten.

TravelDiva said...

Awww. Thanks PJD!!!
