It was only recently that Alisha Bhimani from PR agency Ipan Hill + Knowlton Strategies contacted me regarding Dr. Batra’s Hair Vitalizing Serum Review.
Her mail said:

Dr Akshay Batra, Vice Chairman and Managing Director –Dr Batra’s Positive Health Clinic, “These days more people in cities carp about hair loss.

My Experience: When I suggested a product review, Alisha wanted to know my postal address and I shared it with her. I received the product the next day itself. When I read the instructions on the packet, the information contradicted what I already knew about serums. So I contacted her again with a couple of questions and she promptly got me the replies.
The questions and their answers:
1. Do we have to use it after hair wash? Can’t we use it otherwise? (Serums are used after hair-wash, right?)
A. It can be used any time. It is not recommended to use it with oil, rest at any point in time.
2. Do the ingredients have a cooling effect on us? I have severe sinus problem. So if they have such a cooling effect then I need to be sure that I use it on a warmer day.
A. No, there is no cooling effect.
After getting this information, I started using the product. The product used over-night gives best results. So I tried it overnight once. The packet says that if there is a bare patch in the scalp, we have to spray some of it there and start massaging with finger tips. Slowly we should spread the serum to the other areas. Though I have severe hair loss problem, I luckily do not have a bare patch as of now. So I took some of the serum on my hands and just applied as instructed on the entire scalp area.
According to the packet, the serum slows down hair loss and hair thinning and helps stimulate hair growth. It also has an anti-dandruff action. It is too early for me to say if the product had the above result on my hair and scalp. But after a particularly wild ride in a rickshaw for 3 hours to and from my home to the Hare Krishna temple, recently, having left my hair loose, I used the product on my frizzy hair and got a big surprise. As I combed my hair after the application of the product, there was not a single knot! I love experiments and the above one paid off. So I can assume that the other claims also might very well work.
