How are you??? Are you currently facing the problem of dry and damaged hair??? Have your hair become lifeless lately??? Recently, my hair suffered a lot because I stopped caring for them at all. I used to go out without using a scarf and styled my hair a lot these days. So, my hair were absolutely ruined. That is why, I thought if you are struggling with this too, then my this post would definitely help.

Today, I wanted to share a hair care product that I absolutely cherish. It’s Himalaya Herbals Protein Hair Cream that claims the extra nourishment treatment for your hair. Himalaya is a really trusted brand when it comes to skin and hair care products because they are mostly natural. And that is why I love Himalaya Herbals Products.

About the Brand

How to use Himalaya Herbals Protein Hair Cream?

himalaya herbals proetin hair cream review

It says on the pack, “Use it daily before and after hair wash. Massage on scalp and hair, leaving it for an hour before shampooing. Apply to damp hair after every wash.”

As you know at HCS we do things a bit differently. As in my previous article on hair porosity I shared that heat helps in opening cuticles which helps in better penetration for the moisture into the hair shaft. That is why, I took a small towel and dipped it into hot water and removed the excess water and kept the towel on my head and allowed the steam to pass through my hair and scalp.

Now after giving steam for 5 mins, part your hair in four equal sections and apply the cream evenly on your hair and scalp and leave it for about 1 hour. Now before washing the cream I again gave a little steam to my hair like I mentioned above (again for better penetration of cream into the hair shaft).

Now shampoo and condition your hair as usual. And you are done 😉 .

Note : Steaming is an additional step for better results and is entirely optional. If you are low on time, you can definitely skip it.

Its effects on my Hair

It made my hair more smooth and manageable than before and surprisingly my hair didn’t tangle at all for next two days. Although it did left a little bit of a greasy feeling on my hair.


  • It is extremely pocket friendly.
  • You get decent quantity for quiet reasonable price.
  • Consists of herbal ingredients.
  • Nourishes hair and scalp very well.
  • Makes hair more manageable and smooth and prevents tangling.
  • Definitely can be used as replacement of oil if you hate oiling your hair.
  • It helps in controlling dandruff.
  • No side effects.
  • Easily available.
  • Pleasant smell.


  • The product claims it can be used after wash but it makes hair greasy . So only suitable for pre-wash.
  • The tub packing is a bit unhygenic as you have to dip your fingers each time you use it.
  • It contains parabens.
