The ongoing wet season, rainwater and constant humidity can certainly wreak havoc on our hair. One can’t do enough during this time to protect your locks and scalp, a while a good hair-care routine is imperative, quality products are equally important.

For the first time Keratase India has launched a unique Social Commerce platform to reach out to consumers and give them the convenience of having their luxury haircare delivered to their doorstep. Kerastase has been offering its consumers in India a personalised yet indulgent hair care experience for more than 10 years by partnering with only the most luxurious salons across the country. However, with the current situation being challenging the brand took this as an opportunity and curated a unique platform giving consumers the convenience of an online experience, without eliminating the personalisation and human element of the salon / hair expert conversation.

The most common concern is frizzy, unruly hair. Unsplash

Humid conditions during monsoons cause two different kinds of concerns. The most common concern is frizzy, unruly hair. Kerastase Discipline Bain Fluidealiste and mask Maskeratine work wonders at keeping frizz at bay and leaving you with manageable, smoother hair. Use the Keratin thermique before blow drying/styling your hair as that offers heat protection up to 180 degrees. Its anti-humidity and anti-frizz properties ensure styled hair is shiny and stays smoother for longer.

The second concern with the constant moisture in the air is that it encourages the growth of bacteria and fungi on the scalp, triggering and aggravating scalp concerns such as itchiness, flakiness, excess oiliness and even hair loss. Frequent shampooing with a scalp specific shampoo helps maintain a clean scalp and keeps the micro-organisms away. The Specifique scalp care range by Kerastase has different shampoos for addressing your scalp concerns and the Masque Hydra Apaisant is specifically designed for the scalp, leaving it soothed and hydrated.

Bonus tip: The Kerastase Elixir Ultime Oil is a must have! Enriched with sacred Marula and Camellia oil it adds instant nourishment and iconic shine to your hair. You can use it in many ways – for heat protection (upto 230 degrees) use it before a blow dry, for that enhanced luster use a few pumps after and for your daily nourishment add it to your everyday hair care routine!

Swastika, one of the sacred symbols used by many religions like Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism.

The symbol of Swastika is known to signify peace, prosperity, and good fortune in the religious cultures of Eurasia. In fact, this symbol is considered very significant in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. But, at the same time, it has become one of the most misunderstood religious symbols and has been globally banned in many countries.

The reason why the symbol of Swastika is banned in many countries is because of its association with Adolf Hitler's extreme political ideology, Nazism, as Swastika as its official symbol.

India celebrated a historic day on August 7, as 23-year-old Neeraj Chopra became the first Indian to win an Olympic gold medal in athletics. In the men's javelin throw event, he achieved his greatest triumph, throwing the javelin 87.58 meters on his second try.

Neeraj Chopra was born on December 24, 1997, in Khandra village in Haryana's Panipat district. He grew up in a Haryanavi family of farmers. He is the brother of two sisters. He graduated from Dayanand Anglo-Vedic College in Chandigarh and is now enrolled in Lovely Professional University in Jalandhar, Punjab, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree. Chopra was bullied due to his obesity as a kid, which prompted his father to enroll him in a nearby gym. He then joined a gym in Panipat, where Jaiveer Choudhary, a javelin thrower, noticed his potential and coached him. When the 13-year-old Chopra finished training under Jaiveer for a year, he was enrolled at the Tau Devi Lal Sports Complex in Panchkula, where he began training under coach Naseem Ahmed.

Gothic dresses displayed in a store

The emergence of the Industrial Revolution in Victorian England brought with it many apprehensions and fears that translated into a new genre in literature: the gothic. Today, the idea of the gothic does not have to much with literature as much as it is associated with fashion.

The Victorians began to wear black more often during the Industrial Revolution to hide the stains of soot on their clothes. Many of the working class were employed in factories. They were newly introduced to technology, the idea of coal as fuel, and the working of machines to serve a certain purpose. This kind of work was hard and messy. Wearing light colours burdened the tired folk when the stubborn stains did not get washed away.
