Me thinks

I had my first independent haircut at Habibs, after I had started working and yes it did wonders to my hair. No doubt it became my favourite place to be at for a  nice relaxing time starting from hair cuts to hair massages when it came to Habibs it had to be the BEST.


This book rekindled those old memories in my mind and took me back to a time when my hair featured on my priority list.  Off late with increasing work and never decreasing to-do list my hair was long forgotten and was nowhere near my top 10 important things.


I read this book half expecting few tips to improve my hair and half to take a walk down the memory lane. What I admire about Habibs is the way they deal with their clientele. A precision in their art and a razor sharp memory made a deadly combination raising their  standards of services way before branded saloons had made their way to smaller towns.


I finished this book in two hours on a lazy Sunday as I oiled my hair only to realize I was doing it the wrong way! I learnt how many types of hair are there and how easy it is to care for them without spending a fortune over them to look good.  Indian weather conditions are way different than other countries hence the products that are beneficial there might not yield good results here.  The cartoons make it more easier for one to follow all the gyan in a more light-hearted fashion. This book simplifies it all for us her. A sure must have for every woman in India for an ultimate answer to all their hair woes and that too in apna desi ishtyle!
