Hair oils and masks: Make these essentials part of your beauty routine

In the days of our grandmothers, just oiling the hair (with coconut, Almond or mustard oil) and weekly wash with natural products like Reetha Nut (Soap Nut) and Multani Mitti (Fuller’s Earth) would suffice. With changing times, a plethora of shampoos and fancy oils have flooded the market. High pollutants in urban centres have meant severe hair damage. These new products are usually high on chemicals as well and that meant more harm to hair.

However, in recent years, there has been a turn towards going natural but in a more contemporary way. The market now has plenty of cold-pressed oils and hair masks to nourish and revitalize damaged hair.

Check out hair oils and masks available on Amazon and then make an informed choice.
