Combat oily scalp with dry shampoo: Ayesha's hair becomes oily and sticky due to warm weather and requires hair wash in every two days.

It soaks all the oil and makes hair look freshly washed instantly.
DIY hair pack: Ayesha believes natural ingredients work much better than chemical-infused products. It keep your hair in better condition in the long run. She revealed that she mixes organic coconut oil with aloe vera and applies on the scalp. Keep it for half an hour and shampoo it.

Serum or oil after hair wash: To keep hair tangle-free and voluminous, Ayesha uses Asahi oil and sometimes Nashi hair spray. She suggests to use any oil or serum to make hair look more stylish.
Shine spray to make your hair look extra glamorous: On special occasions like weddings or parties, apart from washing hair and a good hair style, Ayesha suggests to use a shine spray to make your hair look extra glamorous.
