New Delhi hair loss is a common problem for Indian women as factors such as dust, dirt, pollution and unhealthy lifestyle habits such as an unhealthy diet or excessive blow-drying lead to dryness and thus increased hair loss.
Former Miss World Manushi Chhillar, the new brand ambassador for youth – favorite hair care brand Pantene India, admits she’s struggling with hair loss that started with dryness with all the styling during the Miss India pageant. Over the years, her condition worsened from being exposed to a hectic lifestyle and constant travel, while afterward she pursued Miss World and her film career.
Manushi believes that your hair needs both internal and external maintenance. She emphasizes the importance of discipline in daily hair care. Read on to learn more about Chhillar’s hair treatments, her favorite products, and her hairstyle.
Q: When did you realize you needed some serious hair care routine?
A: I think I have always been interested in hair care, when I was younger my mom always helped me keep and groom my long hair. When I entered Miss India and later Miss World, I began to notice hair loss and dryness due to my hectic schedule, excessive heat styling, pollution, frequent travel, etc. It was then that I realized that I had to take serious care of my curls because it takes both internal and external maintenance.
Q: How often do you wash your hair?
A: I don’t wash my hair very often, I would say around 2/3 times a week is enough to clean and condition your hair. I like to use limited products in my hair and generally avoid any styling or leave-in creams unless I’m at work. My hair care routine is pretty simple – wash and air dry.
Q: What do you do when you have a bad hair day? Your favorite hairstyle?
A: Usually when I’m in a rush and can’t wash my hair, I love doing the look with straight hair. I think that would be my favorite hairstyle.
Q: Do you use home remedies for hair care? Please share.
A: During my childhood, I really enjoyed growing my hair long and my regular oiling sessions that I still do. I love using hot oil on my scalp whenever I have the time, of course.
Q: While you’re not taking photos, are you giving your hair a break from styling?
A: When I’m not taking pictures, I like to give my hair a break from heat styling and style it naturally instead. After washing my hair, I let it air dry and apply serum as a final step.
Q: your favorite hair care product and its benefits.
A: I love using the Pantene 2 in1 Shampoo and Conditioner because it offers the double benefits of a shampoo and nourishing conditioner in one bottle, preventing hair loss and keeping your hair dry! It is enriched with pro-vitamin B5 and a lush care formula that strengthens and smoothes my hair.
Q: A Manushi Chhillar hair care tip.
A: I would suggest these tips to our dear readers – make sure you are leading a healthy lifestyle, eating nutritious foods, and keeping yourself hydrated. I think in hair care you have to get the base right, you can’t expect the products to do all the work!
