The secret to lustrous, fuller hair? Mira Rajput Kapoor—homemaker and wife of Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor—seems to know it all. With celebrities homebound amidst the global pandemic, many of them are establishing a social media presence by connecting with their followers. Mira Rajput Kapoor has taken this opportunity to share her haircare journey and sworn-by tips and tricks with her audience.
She begins by saying, "This is what works for me. I have tried a bunch of things in the past and this is my current hair situation. My hair is wavy, and like most girls, I never liked my own hair."[instagram]https://www.instagram.com/tv/CGESExTlTj8/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_campaign=loading[/instagram]
“I have always had wavy hair, it tends to get frizzy in humidity. I was like I don't want to be Monica in that episode in the Bahamas [on the TV show F.R.I.E.N.D.S] with my hair like that. I always wanted to go against the grain and go against my hair type. I used to carry a hair straightener with me everywhere," Mira informs. She also adds "the more damage you do to your hair, sooner or later, it catches up.”
“You can feel when your hair is feeling better. Nothing is better than a good hair day," says Mira. "Earlier on, I was looking for products that would help it look like something else—that would be more conducive to heat styling, blow drying, and straightening. Now I am looking for products that help it be in its natural state," she explains.
She also lists the 'Made in India' products she uses to achieve the hair of her dreams:
1. Kama Ayurveda Bhringadi Hair Oil
2. Pahadi Local Walnut Oil
3. Ohria Ayurveda Neem Comb
In another Instagram video, the celebrity shared a coconut oil and hibiscus hair-growth elixir and a flaxseed hair gel. “I've always seen hibiscus as an ingredient for hair packs, so why not make it yourself?" Mix 7-8 hibiscus leaves and two hibiscus flowers with coconut oil, fenugreek seeds, curry leaves, amla powder and neem powder. Let it boil and then let it steep and cool down. Next, apply the paste to your strands.
For the flaxseed hair gel, boil half a cup of flaxseeds with water and then strain it to create a gel. “The gel is quite a good hack for baby hair. It is helping you keep your hair neat and it is nourishing you at the same time," she states.
