When you’re young, it’s the little things that leave a lasting impact.

Behind the mirror-like shine of the Rathore Princesses’ hair, was a secret ingredient: Time. Through years of tender, loving care that started in childhood, these rajkumaris grew up with thick hair that shone from health and a wholesome up bringing.

Do those hair rituals still hold good in the 21st century? Here’s a 4 step approach to nurturing hair, starting young, revived from the attics of the Rathore Royals.

1. Mother Nature’s Love:

Where there’s healthy hair, there’s an effective oil routine that was instilled at childhood.

Moringa oil, now a celebrated beauty ingredient, was always an essential with the Rathore clan. It added moisture to the princesses’ growing scalps, fought dandruff and prevented the future possibility of splitends.

A powerful brain tonic, Brahmi oil was warmed and massaged vigorously into the scalps of the Rathore girls to boost hair growth and make their minds sharper.

2. Hydration Begins at Home:

The Rathores’ everlasting affair with roses manifested itself in their hair beauty regimes. They distilled rose petals in water to create the hydrating rose water that protects hair from the sun’s rays. After the young princesses ran around the manicured gardens and swam in the palace pools, their hair was spritzed with this tonic to ensure that frizz and dryness was kept away, even as they got older.

3. Health and Happiness:

Almonds, soaked overnight and peeled, walnuts, citrus fruits and juices: this brought the nourished glow to their royal skin and guaranteed bountiful hair. The cherry on the cake was 8 glasses of water a day and 8 hours of sleep: all good habits that retained the brightness of childhood through their youth.

4. Yoga for the Young:

Want your kids to grow up with a head full of healthy hair? Practising the ‘Sheesh Asana’ or what we call the headstand, was a mandate for the Rathore girls. The rush of blood to the head was said to stimulate the hair follicles and aid growth of thick, beautiful hair.

So take some inspiration from the Rathores, and let your young ones reap the long term benefits of truly gorgeous hair.
