Nothing is more attractive than a head full of healthy, luscious locks, even for men. So, while you care for your beard and mustache, take care of your tresses.

These tips from L’Oreal Paris and Delhi-based Lucullan Studios, will help keep your hair nourished and healthy.

1. Men’s products are often marketed as having 2-in-1 or 3-in-1 abilities. While it may seem like a great idea to have a shampoo, conditioner, and body wash all in one handy product, instead of asking one product to work overtime, do yourself and your hair a favor by investing in a complete hair care system made up of separate products. Pick those meant for your hair type.

2. When it’s time to dry your mane, you may be tempted to grab your towel, rub away, and be done with it. However, rough rubbing can actually cause breakage. Instead, gently pat your hair dry to avoid any unwanted damage.

3. Less is more. Keep your hair styling products to a minimum. Too much product can build up on your hair over time, causing your strands to be weighed down and appear flat.

4. Excessive heat can damage your strands, and while you may not be whipping out a curling iron or flat iron, there’s a solid chance you reach for a blow-dryer every now and then. Try to keep using heat tools to a minimum-and when you do use one, make sure to apply a heat protectant beforehand and don’t turn the heat all the way up.

5. Wearing tight, fitted hats too often can take a toll on your strands. Try to go sans hat as frequently as you can, and when you do wear one, opt for a loosely fitted style rather than one that’s molded to your head.

6. Trims are important! While you may not have super-long strands, it’s important to get regular trims. This will help get rid of any unwanted split ends and allow your hair to look and feel its best.

7. Your beard requires proper tender loving care, too. Just as you need to wash your hair, it’s important to keep your beard clean, especially if you use any styling product on it. Instead of using shampoo and conditioner, reach for a face wash and beard moisturizer.

8. A healthy diet can help your hair stay strong and shine. If you are not getting certain nutrition from food, you might see the effect on your hair. Vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid are important for your hair. Starchy food items like bananas and potatoes are rich in Vitamin B6. Major sources of B12 include meat, poultry, fish and dairy products. You can get folic acid with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables especially citrus fruits and tomatoes. Beans and lentils also have it. Proteins is also critical for keeping your hair healthy but many people don’t get enough in daily diet so it’s a good idea to take a daily multivitamin.

9. Oiling is important for your hair and scalp. In summers, use coconut oil and in winters, use olive or almond oil. For better results mix little onion juice with oil. (IANS)

Are you looking to decorate your house on a budget? Or you simply want a touch of your personality and talent in your home? Well, whatever the reason maybe, here are 6 do-it-yourself (DIY) home décor ideas for your home:

Make a garden in your living room

Many of us love gardening but have no space for it so we keep potted plants in our balconies. But if you think about modern living room ideas for your home, you could have your own garden on your living room wall! You can create a green wall by placing a few wooden slabs of different lengths to create a pattern and place your potted plants on those slabs. Now, it won’t be just your TV up on the wall. 

Recycle your glass bottles and jars into vases and bulbs

Take any unused glass bottles (any colour) and paint them. Fill them with water and place flowers in them to make vases. You could also use the bottles as bulbs by placing fairy lights in them and hanging them from your walls or placing them on your tables. This will add some coloured lighting to your florescent lighting. 

Make a vision board

Take some excess or unused fabric you have and cover it on a wooden board. You have the option to add cotton on the board to make it like a bulletin board. Then print pictures, quotes, or any ‘visions’ of your future goals and stick them on this board. Hang this vision board in your room to remind yourself of your goals every day. 

Light up your house

If you have any unused paper cups from a previous get together, string them together and place LED lights inside to make a garland of paper cups and hang them in your house. Another way to light up your home would be to place candles inside mason jars. You could decorate the jar with lace, yarn, ribbon, cloth, etc. You could also decorate the candles with henna (mehndi). These also work great as Diwali decoration ideas

Make a floating bookshelf

Take panels of wood or metal and drill them to the corner of a wall in asymmetrical fashion. Ensure you have at least 4 or more slabs for enhanced effect. Once completed, it will look like they are floating on the wall. Then you can place your books on the slabs to complete your bookshelf.

Make a mural

A mural is a form of art directly painted or applied on a wall. If you don’t see yourself as a great artist, you could invite a friend over and paint a wall in your house with things that inspire you or come up with a theme that will add to the décor of your home.
