Since Vandana asked me in my previous post to share my hair care tips, So how could I leave this opportunity to write about my best feature …Honestly, Vandana you really saved my life, I was racking my brains literally to think about my next topic to review. And there you came like an “angel”.
So here it is …
Right from my childhood days my hair was beautiful, thick, strong, healthy, jet black, shiny & straight.
I am truly blessed when it comes to hair and always been an object of envy as well as admired at the same time amongst my friends for having such lovely hair. Because they are natural and inherited by my mum
(Thank you, Mum! May god always give me you in every lifetime so that I inherit your hair) :*
Inspite of having good hair, My mom never took it for granted. She always kept telling me, you have to take care of your hair so that it remains the way it is. It was she who put me in the habit of oiling it regularly and trimming them time to time. And this might come like shocking news to you but whenever I asked her “Maa, How come my hair is so thick and healthy while my friends always complain about thin hair & hair fall”… She replies in a busy tone (like always) That’s coz I take you to the barber shop and not to the beauty parlor to cut your hair. YES… Girls! I see your jaw drop reaction, my mother always took me to a barber shop or used to call a barber home to cut my hair during my childhood days because she believed that they help in growing your hair faster and Also it avoids the *evil eye* of woman who are eyeing on my her in beauty parlors …lol.. Mum and her reasons I tell you
But as I grew and life got stressful and other disastrous calamities to blame like dust, pollution, weather change, damage caused due to hair color etc etc took a toll over my hair and I started facing problems like hair fall, hair breakage, damage hair and what not and even started believing at a point of time that maybe just maybe I have been a target to people’s *evil eye*
Since then I got even more careful with my hair and took an oath to bring back my beautiful hair back .
And hence below are the essential products that I swear by and which helped me a lot over the years to maintain HAPPY HEALTHY HAIR
Essentials products for my hair care
1) Fenugreek (Methi) Oil For Hair Care
Fenugreek Oil was introduced to me by my mother. When I told her that I am facing hair fall issues.
She advised me to regularly apply fenugreek oil and see the results in no time. I religiously applied it twice a week and trust me, since then I never looked back, it not only stopped my hair fall, it took care of my other hair problems like dandruff, hair thinning too.
To make fenugreek oil, boil the fenugreek seeds and allow them to soak in extra virgin coconut oil overnight. In the morning, put the seeds out and apply the coconut oil mixture to your scalp. Massage the oil into your hair and scalp for 5-10 minutes. Do this consistently for 3 months to see results.
This Oil has helped me a lot to cure my dry, damaged hair caused by hair coloring.
My hair literally was dead and I started losing the lustre and smoothness of my hair and it looked more like a “broom” L
Thank god for Olive oils . I apply olive oil and then go for shower; it’s the best hair treatment for damaged hair.
3) Parachute hair scalp therapie –
I have recently started using this product after Anamika’s post on Parachute’s hair revitaliser Oil and she is so right , this product has become my HAUL and a must have
It really stops hair fall and helps in hair growth too. I also love the smell of this parachute. <3 unlike other hair oils
4) Hair conditioners For Hair
Girls, Believe it or not, You have to use hair conditioners whether you have good hair or you don’t, If u have good and healthy hair and you use hair conditioners, BANG ON! You are on the right track, it will keep and maintain the beauty of your hair: D And if you have BAD hair, Hello! Which world are you in?? Haven’t you heard about what they say about using good conditioners?
I Swear by L’Oreal Absolut Repair Conditioner <3 Lately, when my long hair got damage due to hair color I realized oiling wasn’t enough and regular conditioner will not help much. I need something really effective. So I visited my hair expert at Enrich Beauty salon (very famous in Mumbai) where I asked him to advice me on a good hair conditioner which he thinks will be suitable for me. He strongly recommended L’Oreal Absolut Repair to me and I have blind faith on him as he has always suggested me the right products over the years J . I am still using this product and I simply love it. I didn’t find anything better after using this, So I guess I shall stick to it
I love putting Henna to my hair at days when I really want to pamper myself. I used the one for black hair. Henna makes my hair extra soft and smooth and jet shiny black. It’s as if it brings life to my hair.
Its nothing but a treat to my hair, which I give every 6months. And the sleep that I get after applying it to my hair is beyond explanation: D The smell of Henna instantly lifts my mood and spirits. I am not into hair spa’s much, these are the home remedies that I use and absolutely love!
I have a friend who is currently facing hair growth issues and she asked me the secret to my hair, I suggested the hair oils I used. She told me that she has been restricted to use hair oil by her hair doctor because he is from Australia and using hair oils for hair growth is not in their culture and neither recommended. Strange Ehh! We Indians swear by hair oils and so lucky to have them
Apart from this, I Believe one should use a good shampoo and conditioner and use only the one that suits them, because if you keep changing your products that’s when the problem of hair fall, dandruff etc emerges as rightly confirmed by my hair expert. Trim them regularly, avoid split ends and LOVE your hair, treat them right, It will love you back! J <3
