Amla and chickpea are two main active ingredients used in Himalaya Herbals Protein Hair Cream. Amla works as a natural antioxidant-rich hair tonic for the scalp and the hair, which strengthens hair follicles, prevents dandruff, conditions hair shafts, and promotes hair growth. On the other hand, protein-packed chickpea provides nourishment to the hair, makes it strong and healthy, and prevents damages.
Apply a sufficient amount of the cream from the root to the tip of your hair. Massage the scalp gently by using your fingers and spread the cream evenly. For better results, use it daily before or after hair wash.
Rs. 100 for 100 ml.

Himalaya Herbals Protein Hair Cream Extra Nourishment comes in a sturdy plastic tub. It is a white jar with orange designs and a green screw cap. Once you open the cap, you find a silver foil covering the opening of the tub. There is also a fragile plastic sheet right under the silver foil. Both of these cover the content of the tub perfectly (I’ve removed both of these coverings, so they are not visible in the images). The entire packaging is compact and leakage-proof. However, the tub packaging is unhygienic, as we must dip our fingers into the cream each time. It should be considered as its biggest drawback.
My Take On Himalaya Herbals Protein Hair Cream:
The product is milky white. It has a thick, creamy consistency and a slightly fluffy texture. The cream’s mild herbal fragrance is pleasant and should not bother sensitive noses. The consistency of the cream makes it easy to spread or convenient to apply. It must be gently removed from the jar and rubbed onto the scalp. In other words, massage your scalp with this cream and apply it from the root to the tip of your hair. The white cream becomes transparent in color and gets absorbed by the scalp and hair strands during application.
I use this hair cream 2 to 3 times weekly, at least 1 to 2 hours before washing my hair. I neither oil nor dampen my hair with water before applying this cream. I use it on my dry scalp and spread it all through my hair. I’ve been following this routine for the last two months, and trust me, I’m thrilled with the results. My hair turned softer and smoother on the first application itself. It nourishes the tresses and makes them healthier. Massaging it onto the scalp helps cure its dryness, flakiness, and itchiness. As a result, my dandruff has been reduced significantly. It gives a pleasant soothing effect as soon as applied to the scalp. But the best thing about this product is moisturizing hair without causing greasiness or stickiness. Those who hate using hair oil can go for this extra nourishment without hesitation.
However, using this cream after washing hair can be a real mess. I tried it one day and ended up with a greasy scalp and completely flat or weighed-down hair. It also contains parabens, which are pretty harmful to our tresses.

Will I Recommend?
Oh yes! If you have dry and curly hair, it can be a perfect hair cream to keep your mane smooth, soft, and manageable. If your hair is damaged enough, try it, as it can nourish your hair strands. However, please do not use it as a serum after washing your hair.
Why Use A Protein Hair Cream?
Proteins work as the building blocks for our hair. Keratin protein (derived from keratinocytes) is essential for growing long, strong, and healthy hair. It also impacts the texture, shape, and life of our hair. When our body does not get enough protein internally, we experience dull, damaged, and brittle hair, leading to severe hair loss. The topical application of a good protein hair cream can fulfill the protein requirements of our hair shafts, thereby giving us healthy and gorgeous locks.
