If you’ve been battling hair problems too, it’s about time you turned to the 5000 year-old practice of Ayurveda that resorts to natural ingredients like herbs and thailams (also known as tailams) to give your hair the nourishment it deserves. Wondering how to incorporate Ayurveda in your hair care regime? Here’s a quick guide…
