About three years back during this time of the year I went to Rishikesh for a bungee jumping experience. After much anticipation, I did jump, and it had two outcomes—1. I overcame my fear of heights; the experience was life-altering, I felt free and content; 2. I invited lower back pain issues that stayed with me for good (I jumped the wrong way; my posture was incorrect and it resulted in bad muscle pull).
It’s been 15 years since I got my first period; amidst this long span of time, my body has changed in many ways and so has my lifestyle—I have put on weight (almost 20 kilos more), I have a sedentary lifestyle, exercising is once-in-a-blue-moon kind of affair, I don’t have a fixed eating schedule, I often skip meals, I drink too much coffee (almost 3 to 4 cups a day), I live in one of the most polluted cities of India (New Delhi) and the list is too darn long… However, in the middle of all these life-modifications, one thing that has been a constant for me ever since my first period is – unbearable cramp. My mother tried homeopathy on me for a while when I was younger, it didn’t really work wonders for me.
Are you a fellow damaged-hair victim? If yes, hi-five! I have been looking for this miraculous recipe to soothe my damaged, frizzy hair for a while now. Living in Delhi, no matter how healthy you eat and how often you wash your hair, pollution and water quality really gets to your skin and hair. With no exception, I have unknowingly fallen prey to this misery.
