Worry no more; weíve got you the best-kept secrets to your perfect long tresses; and the best part is, it doesnít require a trip to the salon.


Interested? Read on for some really cool, and surprisingly easy tips to manage your hair better, and make them shiny, lustrous and looking like a million bucks!

  • Make oil your best friend- Grandma was right after all; even the most highly regarded beauty experts today consider moisturizing the most crucial step of hair care; and oil does it best! A 20-minute warm oil massage is excellent for dry, rough and frizzy hair. It moisturizes the hair and the scalp, unlike damaging it like other store-bought conditioners.

Make it a point to oil your hair at least once, preferably twice a week; for best results.

  • Watch your diet- Your diet plays a vital role in determining both-how you feel and look. A healthy diet devoid of processed foods, coupled with moderate exercise can literally make your skin and hair glow from within! Experts recommend adding more Vitamin A and Vitamin E rich foods to the diet to promote hair health.
