First thing's first. As soon as I spotted #FrizzFreeHair Vatika Women's IndiBlogger Meet at IndiBlogger website, I posted it on forum and dashed to twitter. I tagged as many IB-twitter buddies in my tweets and rushed them to register.
Being the journalist, 'Breaking News' is my forte. Wherever and whenever I get any good news, I love to congratulate the winners first hand and share their joy.
Almost all of us , Bloggers reached the venue ( B.J. Hall, VileParle ) by auto, not by BMW as Anoop wild-guessed and wished for. It has become a ritual now to click group photos with banners and blogger-buddies at all the blogger-meets / events. This photo-session gives us an opportunity to break the ice with brand-new IndiBloggers and bonding with branded-bloggers. Did I just say Branded-Blogger ?
Well ... meet Geetha Sridhar aka Geetamaa ( 1st left ). We have won lots of Facebook contests 2 years ago but met first time face to face thanks to IndiBlogger Vatika meet . Please read this about Geetha's tribute to her father and am sure you all will applaud Geetha ... here
Post-registration , the bloggers were welcome with Pina colada and Coco lemonade plus assorted starters. Refreshed and Rejuvenated , we were ready to go GaGa ... literally with IndiBlogger band
The IndiBlogger Rock Stars Renie , Anoop , Nihal , Jesuwin and Saurabh set the stage afire and how! What a groovy feast with Pink Floyd - Another Brick in the wall- part 2 - 'We Don't Need No Education' and Lady Gaga's 'Poker Face' !
The above picture does Speak Thousand words and Sings Million Melodies as well... Letting the hair loose had never been so Soulful ... so Surrealistic .
The 30 seconds of Fame for bloggers is worth a whole blog-post. Ever enthusiastic, brilliant blogger, pro-photographer Divyakshi Gupta introducing herself and her blog. This blogger-introduction session at Vatika #FrizzFreeHair meet was totally inspiring for us as well as for freshers. This was the 1st IndiBlogger meet of Geetha Sridhar and Saudamini Naik ( GladRags Mrs. India 2015 ). We are so very proud of you and honored to have you both Geetha n Saudamini, among IndiBlogger community.
The Marketing Head of Dabur Vatika spoke about Dabur's rich history in Health care sector. The 1st branded hair oil , Dabur Amla hair oil was launched in the year 1940. We were astonished to know that Dabur is a Rs. 1000 crore international industry. Dabur Vatika Jasmine non-sticky coconut oil is a light, non-greasy hair oil which has mineral, silicon oil base and a little share of coconut oil. This wonderful combination offers easy spread over the hair and our hair doesn't look sticky, oily and dull. It has minerals, vitamins and silicon oils which locks moisture and voila... we have #FrizzFreeHair.
Frizz is a condition of damaged, unmanageable, unruly, dull hair because of high or low humidity, malnutrition, dandruff etc. If all this sounds a bit over the top ( the pun is intended ) , just try Vatika Jasmine on top of your own head and you will be happy with the result. Say bye to Frizzy hair and Hi to Silky, Healthy hair with Dabur Vatika Jasmine non-sticky coconut oil
Next was a home-remedy contest. The bloggers shared tips and secrets for #FrizzFreeHair. The home-remedies ranged from application, consumption of flax-seeds ( Alsi ), Amla, Fenugreek ( Methi ), Jabakusum , Currypatta, Curd, Eggs etc. to living / enjoying stress-free life. Ekta, Heena , Saudamini ( Gladrags-Mrs. India, in the above picture ) won this contest.
All bloggers were presented with Dabur Vatika goodies bag ( 1.Dabur Vatika Jasmine Hair Oil 2. Dabur Vatika Coconut Hair Oil 3. Philips Smooth and Shine Hair Straightener )
Italian and Indian , yummilicious lunch was served. Most of all, I loved the Ferrero Rocher ice-cream.
Free Hair-Styling , champi , shampoo , hair-spa session for #frizzFreeHair was arranged at the specially constructed champi-station.
