Many of us struggle with good hair health owing to a multitude of factors. Experts suggest it is important to take some measures instead of stressing out. According to yoga practitioner and fitness influencer Juhi Kapoor, certain yoga asanas and some essential hair care tips can come handy when practised regularly.
“When it comes to hair health, you need to build a holistic hair care routine – oiling, hair mask, regular hair wash with right products and healthy combing pattern. Food makes a huge difference, too. A good and balanced diet helps to keep your hair long, strong, and healthy,” she said in a post on Instagram.
