When it comes to hair care, it can get too confusing to find out which products deserve shelf space in your beauty closet.
So, we spoke to dermatologist Dr Stuti Khare aka ‘Hair Growth Queen’, who is known for her non-invasive methods to improve your hair health. A healthy balanced diet that is rich in iron, vitamin D and vitamin B as well as avoiding stress are some of the easy lifestyle changes that you can make to get the hair of your dreams. She adds, "Choosing the wrong styling products, trying too many random products, too much of chemical treatments is another reason for many hair troubles. The best way is to seek the advice of your dermatologist before starting any product or treatment."
Here are her product recommendations for common hair issues that beset many of us:
Frizzy, curly hair
Curly hair require a lot of hydration and moisture. In the absence of nourishing products, curly hair tends to become frizzy and unmanageable. So, include haircare products with intense hydration to ensure soft, bouncy curls.

The lack of volume can plague all hair types especially if you have fine or straight hair. The key is to opt for a volumising haircut and also ensure that you use products that give your tresses a bit of lift.

Chemically damaged hair
Frequent blow-drying and hot ironing your hair as well as using bleach and colouring can take a toll on your hair health. These harsh methods end up leaving your hair porous and more prone to breakage. The key is to use gentle products that can cleanse without harming your hair.

You can get prone to dandruff due to various different reasons. So, visit your dermatologist to know the exact root of the problem. You can also keep the problem at bay by using zinc pyrithione and ketoconazole based shampoo for instant results.
An oily scalp not only leaves you with limp hair but can also trigger a host of other issues such as acne on your face and shoulders. So, opt for a gentle cleansing product to soothe and calm your hair.
