About Her

India
Little Moments Of Bliss is a silhouette of a feeling that resides in my heart. A software engineer by degree, a writer at heart, and a teacher by profession, I'm all that I never thought I would be. Pretty pictures,a poem that blatantly refuses to rhyme, a text from a deranged friend, a sudden gesture of love, its these little things in life, that matter and sprinkle bliss. Grace the couch and share a cuppa!

My Tangle of Mysterious Prejudice

Love is a two way street: Love your hair and it loves you back! Dove IndiBlogger Contest Winner



This post has won the fourth prize in Dove's 'Damage Therapy Range' contest.






They swirl, they twirl, they dance, they entangle his desire - Your hair - don't have them, wear them.

Ask a man 'how would you want your girl to do her hair' and pat comes the reply 'She's at her sexiest when they're messily tied up. I love them like that.'

Hair represent a woman's every mood with equal elegance.

A formal event - you tie them up to compliment your attire.
Cooking - you curl up a bun so that it keeps them from falling.
Wanna cuddle ? - you mess'em up.
Stroll with friends - let them loose and breathe.
*Thinking of a story to blog about - pick up some strands, roll them on your index finger, feel good, pretend like you're in deep thought process and eventually laugh at your own stupidity :D

I never accessorize. I'm not an accessory person. I like to compensate it with my hair. I don't have them, I wear them. I don't have 'the' perfect hair every woman dreams of but they're mine, they demand care from me like its their birth right, and I love them for it.

I give them proper moisturization and believe me, even if you have oily hair, they need some moisture and conditioning.
They serve me loyally in my hour of need and that covers up for their little mischief every now and then. I desperately wish I had a poetic streak somewhere in me because a poem would express me the best right now. Its an itch I cannot scratch. *:D* I scare away couplets, they never wander anywhere near 50 miles of my presence.


When I saw Kangna's curls in Gangster, I fell for them instantly. My hair have been wavy all my life. My want for 'curls-like-the-mad-girl-in-gangster-has' grew and became a need overnight. It demanded my mom's immediate attention. Her naturally curly curls even hid her bad accent and evil acting skills in it, for me, of course :D. It was an incident my mom would never forget. She threw in all kinds of distractions and I don't quite recall which one of them walked its way to glory. Anyhow, I was a kid back then. 2 years ago, a very dear friend of mine, who had the most beautiful hair you could ever want, got her straight locks curled. Before I could aid her 'screaming-for-help' hair, the damage was done. She was born and raised with silk threads on her head and this change threw her into the oh-so-curly 'Kangna' land. A month later, she went into the same salon and got her hair re-bonded, which was double the damage. Although superficially she looked the same as she did with her natural hair, but because I knew the story, I could spot the burnt ends and the irreparable damage.

I swore that very day, never in my life would I torture my hair like that.

Take my word : Do not ever go for curls if you haven't been blessed with them naturally. You will be charged with brutal murder. Of your innocent hair.


I was in a big serious dilemma last month. I had recently joined the gym and my sweaty hair screamed for a bath almost everyday. I couldn't torture them with the regular shampoo everyday so I consulted my homeopathic physician (Yes, I do that often and she's my godmother). I'm not writing the next line because I am going to submit this post on Indiblogger, I cross my heart and swear not to lie :P. She told me to switch to Dove :) She said I could use it even on a 1 year old baby's hair, its that mild. I drove my way to happy hair back home :) I began writing this post because of this sole incident :)

My hair aren't very great, but they're happy and healthy, which is far more important :) They have their regular dose of oiling, spas, conditioning and home remedies (they work like nothing else does) :)

Tangled remains to be my favorite animated movie of all times :) Not exaggerating :D

P.S. I always correct people when they pluralize hair as 'hairs'. It grosses me out a little.


This was my hair story. What's yours ?
Read these and submit yours on Indiblogger here :)

Because life is full of challenging and frustrating moments until the day you eventually find a hair-product that is tailor-made for your hair :) Mine is Dove :)

  1. As much as I love my hair, over the years, I have been torturing them whenever m under stress, so well the volume is no more there.. And well there are days when I simply love my hair and I promise not to do the damage to them ever again, it just ends up happening again:/.....I have been honestly thinking of trying dove too...and ur post just makes me wanan go to the market and buy it tmrw itself...mumma toh oiling karne se rahi...toh khud hi karni padti hai...but my hair absorbs oil so much ( coz they are oily, in fact) that it takes me some good 4 washes to take it out:/...hope dove works for me!! and I promise to tk care of my hair from now!! keep asking me abt my hair ok??

    PS: I had curly hair till school, so much that people would ask me at events if I have got them curled, bus baal kheech kheech ke, straight ho gaye hain mere baal:P Also....Ms.Ayushi...will u pls tell me where have u been all this long?? Dis u collect ur award from my place?? It's been wanting you to grab it!!!!

  2. What an effin coincidence. I am listening to "Bheegi Bheegi" from Gangster as I read this. Yeah Kangna's hair is something that I really love. My girl used to be so obsessed with her I remember. I am actually capable of falling in love with a girl who's got wonderful. The messy-but-nice ones like Kangna's or the long brown pony tails or the shiny black shoulder-length ones even :)

    good post :)

  11. Dove works like a charm for me as well, discovered it about a year ago and still hooked to it. That they sent me the package was an additional bonus:D

    And I have never even considered getting my hair into any sorta treatment for I'm mortally scared it'll fall off. The worst thing I have done is get a layer cut; my luxurious think hair has taken a hit in terms of thickness and refuse to go back to the original thickness even as the cut grew out:(

  18. **My want for 'curls-like-the-mad-girl-in-gangster-has' grew and became a need overnight
    I was smiling SO widely here because this line kinda reminded me of my own curly MESS of what you'd call hair. Uf, noodle hair, so much prettier to look than bear and keep with em! :(
    And please, you take good care of your hair with all that oiling and spas there's goes another dissimilarity! (yoiu should be glad we're not similar there, love ;))
    Andddddd, I don't accessorize too. Yay, hi five.
    I like this place, I love you :) <3 Just felt like saying.

  45. I had hair reaching my waist and totally curly till two years back. I hated it then. Now when I look back or go through the pictures I so regret having that haircut. :|
    Thrice in two years. Now I am letting my hair grow.
    Curls look good when you have long hair. I was getting my hair re-bonded but my friends didn't let me.
    So now my hair is growing. :D
    Nice post and must I say, you are very pretty. :)
    P.S.: Looks like, Dove doesn't suit only me! :(

  51. I loved the various moods and the hair styles. We are not happy with what we are blessed with. Those with curls want straight with straight want curls. Sad to hear your friend story. Yes Kangana looked great in Gangster and now she has straight hair..is that why her movies not doing well :-) Good one.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Thanks for the warning. I am err, blessed, with curly hair. And I know the pains I have to take to manage them. I am attracted to silky, straight hair. What's with this desire for what you don't have? I will remember this tale the next time I decide to iron my hair. :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. I love you hair. I am always attracted to silky hair and lovely smooth hair. You have lovely post here. I m just impressed by your writing skills. You penned amazingly.
