Further delving a little into the details of infertility and conception hell, Hathaway stated how neither of her pregnancies has been an easy feat.Taking to Instagram, Hathaway shared a lovely mirror selfie with her flaunting a tiny baby bump. She captioned the image as, “It’s not for a movie…⁣⁣ #2 ⁣ ⁣All kidding aside, for everyone going through infertility and conception hell, please know it was not a straight line to either of my pregnancies. Sending you extra love.” Although the sex of the baby is still a mystery, it is one suspense that we don’t mind dealing with. Hathaway has often been very private about her personal life so it is not surprising that she will keep the sex of her second baby a secret till the due date at least. Anne HathawayInstagramAnne Hathaway along with her husband of seven years, Adam Shulman, first became parents in 2016 to a beautiful baby boy, Jonathan Rosebanks Shulman, in 2016. Earlier as she discussed pregnancy and the difficulty surrounding it, Hathaway spoke to The Sunday Times and was quoted saying, “I’m not perfect, but if I’m frustrated or distracted, I’m good at making sure he’s safe and walking away, calming down and then coming back to him. Further speaking about the harshness of motherhood, I fall short every day, but I’m not going to beat myself up about it, I’m going to learn from it.” Anne HathawayInstagramParenting has not been an easy feat but Hathaway found an ideal way to communicative effectively with her son, by taking a leaf out of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s parenting books. “They get down on the child’s level and speak to them eye to eye to make their child feel empowered,” she explained to the newspaper. “I thought that was really cool. I started doing that with Jonathan,” she added. We can’t wait to see more of Hathaway’s pregnancy pictures!last_img read more

Taming makes wave in Indias hair care industry

Posted On Aug 31 2019 by

first_imgThe beauty and hair care industry in India is witnessing a growth with new products and processes making inroads every season. Hair taming is one such method that seems to have made it big in the “evolved” hair care industry as women are loving the “no side effects and no harmful chemicals” procedure. Talking about the changing trends, experts say: “Earlier, when women used to use heat appliances like straightening iron, blow dryers onto their strands or undergo hair treatments like rebonding, hair smoothening, they faced many difficulties with the texture of the hair, which resulted in dissatisfaction. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”When hair taming came into the Indian market, people gradually started getting the hold of it. Hair taming gives the desired texture to the hair with its 100 per cent protein treatment known as keratin, which is infused into the cuticles to make hair healthier and shinier.”Speaking further, they revealed how hair taming has become a new age trend in the market as it rejuvenates strands from the roots while relaxing it. “As compared to rebonding or hair smoothening, taming involves more natural protein-based process which uses relatively fewer chemicals. Women prefer hair taming rather than going for artificial hair treatments because it helps them in managing hair easily, without any worries of frizz and damage,” experts told. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThe treatment lasts for up to 4 months depending upon quality of the hair. It conditions hair while infusing natural keratin deep into the cuticle of the hair shaft. There is no better treatment than this when it comes to silky, smooth and frizz free hair. Hair taming treatment has been successful so far in delivering these results which is why even the biggest brands are getting into this treatment.The future of hair care industry lies in the products and treatments which restore the hair back to natural state with no side effects, no harmful chemicals and no artificial look, one of the experts, who has been observing the changing trends pointed out. “The changes were less prominent and slow in the beginning as people were in the process of adapting this change. But by the 20th century, keratin treatment became a hype in the market across the globe and that’s how eventually all the big brands and salons started including keratin treatment in their products and services,” experts said.Many brands are focusing on keratin treatments for smooth hair. So how effective is it for long hair and how can one avoid the complications?”After getting the treatment done, one has to be very careful while buying hair products and has to look into the chemicals and ingredients added to it. Try switching to sulphate-free products which keeps the moisture intact. Also, some shampoos will have keratin infused in them. These are great as long as they don’t contain sulphate,” they stated.Also, though there are no hard and fast rules before getting the keratin treatment done, it’s still better if you don’t have any metallic dyes or henna coating on your hair as that doesn’t get you the great results. However, post treatments, you need to take care of a few things for two days — like don’t tie your hair back, stay away from heat and sweat and other little things. Avoiding such factors would help you to get the best results.Also, it is vital that after the treatment, you only use sulphate-free shampoos and the shampoos that are specially created for post-keratin treatment. Doing so elongates the life of the treatment and gives you frizz free hair for a longer period,” said an expert.last_img read more
