The coat is a structure, but have important functions in social functioning same as that of hair in your fashion world. The hair is made of a hard protein called keratin. Each anchor at the base of hair follicles bulbs form follicles. On the root hairs, living cells divide and grow to build coat.

5 secrets to healthy hair
Check the heat
Heat styling tools are harmful for your hair. Sorry to say. And when you pair ironing with a blowdry you are inviting severe hair damage. The solution: stick to one styling tool at a time. Blow-dry when your hair is 70 percent dry and use a nozzle. Else let your hair air dry completely and use a flat iron.

Stick to one direction
While blowdrying and brushing, follow one direction to avoid the development of frizzy strands. Deal with one segment at a time instead of dealing with multiple sections. It may take longer to get done but you’ll get that absolutely sleek and straight hairstyle that’s in trend lately. We’ve spotted actresses like Priyanka Chopra, Sonakshi Sinha and Kareen Kapoor take to the ultra straight look recently.

No natural streaks
Remember that age-old technique of applying lemon juice to your hair before stepping in the sun for natural highlights? That’s also another way to fry your shafts, and is definitely far from healthy.

Know your hair
Plastic combs can cause static currents in certain hair types. If you’ve noticed this on your hair, avoid using combs of plastic since they can cause breakage and aggravate split ends.

Work the ponytail
The classic high ponytail is your best friend on bad hair days. Blowdry when your hair is still damp and not entirely dry since this helps keep it straight too. Add a small doze of any good Dryness Care hair oil for added gloss.

Essentials in every girl’s hair kit
If, like most of the girls in our office, you too believe that glamorous hair is half a battle won to looking good, here are a few must haves in your hair kit.

They add shine, de-tangle knots and are also frizz fighters. That’s more than enough to expect from one hair care product isn’t it?

Leave-in conditioners: 
A definite must have for girls with curls. Leave-in conditioners, lock in the moisture of your regular conditioner providing added nourishment to keep fly aways and dry strands in check without weighing the hair down

Blowdryer (with the nozzle): 
You really haven’t played enough with your tresses if you still don’t own that nozzle. It soothes frizzy strands to keep them in place during a blowdry and gives your hairstyle a defined shape.

Round ceramic brushes: 
Haven’t invested in them yet? What exactly are you waiting for? With their ability to retain heat longer, they lend that perfect sleek hairstyle during a blowout. It’s a great save in effort and time.

Large bristle comb: 
If you don’t own this, you are probably still brushing wet hair with a brush and adding to split ends. A wide tooth comb is your safest bet when you need to detangle just washed hair.

Stock up on styling products: 
We didn’t believe in them until we actually tried them out personally. Styling products like TRESemm√©’s Smooth and Shine shampoo and conditioner can leave even the driest of locks feeling silky smooth.

Lock it in
Straight hair that’s frizz free and looks silky smooth and shiny is almost every woman’s dream.

All you need to do is grab the new Sunsilk Perfect Straight Shampoo and conditioner. The advanced product is formulated with Straight-Lock Technology, which actively controls and gently binds hair together into a simple and elegant, straight style, from the moment you step out of the shower. So lock in the straight shape of your mane, without damaging your tresses with the harmful heat from a straightener or a blow drier. What’s more! This saves time as well!

Stop the fall
Uproot the hair fall problem from the roots! Harsha shares some effective home remedies to make you hair healthy and strong.

Make it oily
If your hairfall is due to dry hair then a good oil massage 2 – 3 times in a week can make you feel great. Try using a combination of hair oils like castor, almond and coconut oil. On normal days, massage your hair with warm oil before shampooing. Do not over oil, or it will increase the hairfall. Keep it minimal but regular!

Juice therapy
Hairfall can be an indication by your body that some vitamins are lacking. Apply juices of garlic, wheatgrass or Aloe Vera before washing your hair. Its application can balance the nutrients which ultimately reduce the hairfall.

Mask it
Apply a paste using gram flour, honey and coconut oil and keep it on for about an hour. Wash off with a mild shampoo followed by a conditioner. Another paste can be made using extracts of gooseberry, fuller’s earth and few drops of neem oil. Pastes which balance the oil, vitamins and moisture in your hair help in reducing the hairfall. Plus, these also add to the sheen and bounce of your hair!

Rub it off
Dandruff can lead to excessive hairfall as well. Rub some lemon juice or yogurt to get rid of the dandruff and then apply sufficient hair oil to avoid dryness. Make sure you drink plenty of water to help your scalp retain the moisture.
