How to get luscious locks

4 handy hints to help you achieve that magnificent mane.


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).
