My friend is on her trip to US and I was browsing through Sephora to order a few things which my friend would bring back from her trip. That was when I came across the sephora hair sleeping mask range. Anything which promises to condition my hair, grow my hair or make it beautiful is always on top of my list. In US, it is available at 5$ a piece but before ordering it in bulk, I thought I would give it a try. That was when I made the trip to Sephora Hyderabad for the first time. I picked up … [Read more...] about Sephora Hair Sleeping Mask – Rose

Most of us know the importance of deep conditioning and moisture for our hair. We oil our hair on a regular basis and try to take good care of it, yet sometimes no matter what we do, it continues to be problematic. Assuming that you have no medical or health problems, your diet is reasonably good, you exercise regularly and try to stay healthy, it can be puzzling as to why these problems persist. In that case I'm here to tell you it could be because of a not-very-well-understood hair ingredient … [Read more...] about Protein for Hair : Why You Need It and When You Do Not?
It has been 6 months since I got my dry hair coloured. The reds are the worst as they fade the fastest. That is how Katrina Kaif managed to spend 55L on the Chinar-esque shade she got which I absolutely fell in love with. My red lasted for 3 months and since then my hair is chocolate brown which is not too bad if I can say so. In the long run, I can also claim that my dry hair is doing pretty well after the intensive chemical treatment it went through. But, yes, the post coloured dry hair care … [Read more...] about How to take care of your post coloured dry hair? – My Hair Diary
When I was young, I remember my mum used to be very particular of not getting me a hair cut except from her own hands and needless to say she was not a hair stylist. I am not sure what is with old mindsets that there is something in the hands of the stylist which lends character to your hair. What will you say about a person whose hand suited you first and later did not? Well, the same thing happened to me. The stylist I was so gaga about a few months ago is now on my hit list because of the … [Read more...] about My Hair Diary – December 2015
Wow. We are two months to a brand new year and we will all be one more year older! I think with age people do come to appreciate life more. This year has been very enlightening in that way. And, I can proudly say I shall be entering my 30's. Now, I can relate to why people say 30's are very liberating. You appreciate yourself, your thinking changes and you become evolved more than ever! Anyways, coming back to the post, I did not write about how my hair did last month because by the time I was … [Read more...] about My Hair Diary – October 2015
So, I have already shared that I got my hair colored (though I have to say that the pic was blurred)! Let us see how my hair is doing after that. And, yes, you should definitely check out Drishyam movie if you have still not! I have not seen the regional version of it but of course such characters are just written for Ajay Devgan in hindi movies and he has nailed it again :) As usual, Tabu is a treat to watch! Cysteine Treatment So, it has been two months since my cysteine treatment. Okay, … [Read more...] about My Hair Diary – July 2015
Since I hit my 30s, I've been noticing greys creeping up one by one. Maybe not 50 shades, but enough to be noticeable! Sadly, most of them turn up around the crown of my head and end up being very visible. Ever since I decided to grow out my hair, I've been trying to take care of it better and part of that was to stop using chemical dyes on it. I just got tired of the whole cycle of getting damaged and split ends, cutting it then wondering why I wasn't able to grow it out. So around 3-4 years … [Read more...] about How to use Henna and Indigo to naturally darken brown Hair?
Huh...getting on quora is such a time pass or a time waste, whatever! So, how was your weekend, folks? Mine was a bit hectic with Ugadi, the new year of the Telugus :) It was the first time I made the Ugadi pacchadi. It is said that the taste of your pacchadi determines how your next year is going to go! Mine was sour, all other tastes were in balance apart from sweet and I am a bit shorthand with sweet. Ugadi Pacchadi or sauce, you can say, is basically a combination of various tastes - sweet … [Read more...] about #OneMonthtoHealthyHair – How to take care of dry and rough hair?
