‘Since I have dry hair, I use a good shampoo, conditioner, serum and mask’
Be it summer, winter or monsoon, my hair care routine is pretty much the same all year round. I have a tendency of dry hair, so I use a good shampoo, conditioner, serum and mask. I try to shampoo once a week and follow it up by applying conditioner and serum. Once a month, I replace it with a hair mask. That’s all I do for my hair.

‘I drink plenty of water and eat seasonal fruits for healthy hair’
I have naturally straight hair. Last year, I did a keratin treatment post which many of my hair problems vanished. But I am prone to dandruff, so I make sure I use a good anti-dandruff shampoo thrice a week. Also, I do a hot oil massage once a week during summers. It not only strengthens my hair but also helps me keep it naturally straight and smooth. I drink plenty of water and also eat seasonal fruits for a healthy hair.

‘Use the comb only to detangle your hair after shampooing’
Managing your curly hair becomes rather difficult during summer. The first thing I advise is to stop combing from the roots. Once you wash your hair after applying shampoo and a deep moisturising conditioner, use the comb only to detangle the hair. This will reduce hairfall. Also, apply a nice hair gel mixed with a curl cream on the damp hair to keep the hair manageable and smooth.

‘I oil my hair on alternate days to achieve good lustre’
Since I often have to use many products and heat on my hair for styling during photo shoots, I use a keratin-based heat protector and a hair mask to keep my hair smooth and protected from the harshness of the styling products. I also oil my hair on alternate days during summer by mixing coconut and almond oil for a good lustre. I would advise people with curly hair to use a shampoo that’s paraben and sulphate free.
