Taking Care of Your Hair

Your hair needs to be given extra care because it not only protects your head from heat loss but also makes you look beautiful.

  • Use conditioners or shampoos designed for dry hair if you are exposed to wind, sun or other environmental elements.

  • Be careful with heat styling products, like curling or straightening irons or chemical treatments, like perms, colors or relaxers for your hair.
  • Over and above, eat a hair healthy diet, sleep well and exercise regularly if you want your hair to shine.
