Take Care of the Crown You Carry

What is the first thing we notice when we see someone? We see their faces, their smiles, and their long, lush, shiny hair. Hair is something that gives you confidence and helps you look your best. It is the biggest crown anyone carries. 

So, in order to benefit from the confidence boost that our hair provides, we must take proper care of it and ensure that we are not compromising its health by allowing bacteria or fungi that cause hair fall and dandruff to grow.

How have we been known to take care of our hair? These steps ensure that the health of your hair isn't hampered. The first step is to oil the hair. Hair oiling is a practice that has its origins in Ayurveda. This practice is more than 5,000 years old. Oiling your hair not only retains moisture but is also known to reduce pitta in the body. It has additional benefits. The warmth of the oil and the head massage that is done post-oiling promote blood circulation and hair growth.    

Let’s look at some of the ingredients and the benefits of Lush layers.
