#BookReview: Hair Yoga: Caring for your hair the right way by Jawed Habib

On the jacket:

This book has a foreword and cartoons by Sudhir Tailang. Jawed Habib is one of the top hair stylists in the industry. Jawed Habib Hair and Beauty Pvt. Ltd. is the leading player in the hair and beauty segment in India. It is one of the largest unisex salon chains in India with a presence across 62 cities. At present, the company has over 340 salon outlets and 47 salon academies in India. The book has everything about hair carefrom taking care of dandruff, to greying, to balding.


Hair Yoga is not just a book about hair care. It also gives us a sneak peak into how and why Jawed Habib is what he is today. I remember, growing up, Habib's was the first ever chain of salons which can come up in India and it was quite a novel idea, women going to men for having their hair styled. Till then, the quintessential beauty parlours were oft frequented by the middle and upper middle class Indian. 

Jawed Habib speaks about how he had groomed himself, to be what he is today. This was important to know, to go on to read how to take care of our most prized assets, from someone who knows what he is talking about. (eg) We know that coconut oil, sesame, mustard oil etc are good for our hair - but how and why is explained in this book.

From answering frequently asked questions to minutely explaining how all our hair types are different, helping readers identify what their hair types are, to talking about oiling, washing, conditioning, brushing, colouring, and, protecting our hair, Jawed has told in this book, all one needs to know, probably. He has also explained why and what kind of lifestyle is needed for having the best quality of hair and also how to take care of children's hair.

Personally, I found Hair Yoga to be a very handy guidebook, to refer to at any point, any season, to know about the right kind of hair care.
