Want to be the hair envy of all your girlfriends? Now you can. Get that healthy and gorgeously luscious locks of hair with these simple tips:

1. Must-have nutrients

Ensure that your nutritional intake — vitamin D, iron, minerals, biotin, protein and omega 3 — is up to the recommended dosages. Not sure what the right amounts to take are? Talk to your doctor or a hair-loss expert.

2. Daily cleanse

Remove daily grime by washing and conditioning your hair daily. Use a weekly deep conditioner like John Frieda Full Repair (Watsons, #B2-06 Ngee Ann City, 391 Orchard Road, 6339-8456) to cosset your locks.

3. Essential food 

Eat egg or fish as often as possible to get plenty of omega-3 fatty acids.

4. The right oils

To get soft and silky tresses, apply argan oil (like Josie Maran's, at Sephora including #01-05 Ion Orchard, 2 Orchard Turn, 6509-8255).
