Hair care is an important part of every girl’s beauty regime and we at StyleCracker constantly aim at getting you quick and effective fashion and beauty solutions. Our stylist met up with Shailesh Moolya; Lakme Absolute Salon expert and National trainer –hair and got quick tips on how best to care for your hair!


1. What is the best way to prevent hair fall?

I am asked the question quite frequently. Most people stress over hair fall which is actually a natural process as hair has a growth cycle and needs to shed for new hair to grow. Excess hair fall however can be caused due to medical conditions or external factors. Stress, diet, smoking, lack of sleep or tying your hair too tight (retraction alopecia) are all external issues and can easily be corrected. For people who still want a solution I’d suggest the following treatment as it helps protect and strengthen your hair at the roots and in the process prolongs its growth span.

Treatment: Schwarzkopf hair fall serum treatment.

4. Your take on hair straightening?

Most people who want to go for hair straightening don’t know the correct process to follow. It is also a common belief that chemical is very bad foryour hair, while this is true it is not the complete truth. Any process that involves chemicals has its side effects hence it is always advisable to get it done from a professional. Hair straightening is a good option for women with extremely frizzy and curly hair and is a refreshing change to one’s look. There are various products that can be used to protect your hair after any straightening treatment to maintain your hair’s PH balance. Milk straightening is slightly better than chemical straightening. It is also important to note that any such treatment should be done in a gap of 6 months.
