Imagine. It is a windy day, with the breeze so good against your skin and your hair all over the place. Oh yes! Your curly hair all over the place. Took out the fun of breeze, eh?

Who doesn’t love a dry martini or a margarita once in a while? But I am not talking about those in here. This is the bar of products, and here’s a menu for product cocktails that you can use!
Product cocktailing is basically mixing up two or more hair-products to meet your styling needs. You can also make your own specialty cocktails. For that, TheCuriosJalebi’s product list can be of a good help.
All of us know that a moisturiser is the saviour of dry and lifeless skin. Just like that, Desi Curly says that you can apply leave – conditioner aka the hair moisturiser to the mid-lengths and ends of hair. It will moisturise, revitalise and refresh the curls. What’s more is that it also leaves the curls soft, shiny, bouncy and strong! To go to the video, click here.

From detangling to rehydrating your curls, a hair mask is a rejuvenator. There are two types of hair masks – protein based masks and pure moisture masks. The protein based masks work best for hair that needs strengthening due to damage caused by bleaching and hair dyes. And moisture marks helps with dry curly hair to rehydrate.
CurlieNish brings you “superfood for curly hair.” If you are a DIY fanatic, you can always mix up your own hair masks! Here’s a little help for you to get along with that.
Don’t get disheartened with those apparently dead curls’ reflection on the mirror. Elizabeth Alex, or HonestLizHere will help you out with getting defined curls.
Her statement is, “Curly hair doesn’t have to be complicated,” and that’s true. Follow her tips from here to get that Kangana Ranaut look you’ve been trying to rock!
Yes, I know that it is not possible to air dry every time you wash your hair, thus, diffuser comes handy. It is believed that air drying lets the hair soak all the nutrients from the products applied.
But you can always substitute air – drying with a diffuser attachment, which helps to disperse the air flow of a hair dryer. This results in less frizz and no disturbance in the hair pattern.
HonestLizHere also has some say in air – drying vs. diffuser.
Styling curly hair can be a real pain in the butt. To help you with quick and easy hair up-dos, ChicMedusa has quite a few posts to help you with that.

I know you must be thinking that your hair is already curly, and why on earth am I asking you to use the curling iron! Keep aside this prejudice, get a curling iron that matches your curl’s diameter because it helps a lot to give a finishing touch to your hair style.
Colouring and highlighting the hair can create some damage. Pick up the iron and curl your way through! It will help you get defined curls and give your hair a more uniform look.

I was so engrossed in looking after my daughter, being both a mom and dad for her, that I myself no longer existed...
Being a single mother, my world revolves around my daughter.
Whatever people may say, the bond that exists between us is very different from a regular mother-daughter relationship. Navya, my daughter is the reason I am alive today.
This statement may sound cliched, but that is the biggest truth of my life. She is the reason I stopped myself from jumping off a local train years ago. The fact that she was growing inside me, that tiny speck of tissue in my uterus, had the strength to twine around my legs and hold me inside the train.
Alia Bhatt is pregnant and happy about it - it's not our job to accuse her of 'trapping' her partner into marriage or shaming her for the timing of it.
When Alia Bhatt announced that she and her partner, Ranbir Kapoor, were expecting a baby, all I could feel was joy. As a person who has been in awe of Bhatt’s acting skills and dedication, this news genuinely made my day.
However, the joy was soon replaced by anger and frustration when I read the first few comments (from certain unverified Instagram handles) on her pregnancy post. Here are the exact words of those who felt it was okay to question a woman’s choice:
“Baby k liye saadi kiye ho ya saadi k liye baby?” (Did you get married because of this baby or did you get married to make babies?)
