This post is part of an ongoing series called Fur We Love, where we focus on people's relationship to their hair and the routines they've built around haircare. This week, we talked to Alisha Bansal, a model and art sale administrator, about not brushing her hair, regrettable side bangs, and Afghan hounds.
What are some of your haircare and grooming routines for hair all over?
I'm just a wash and air dry person. Sometimes I use some dry shampoo, but generally I don't even brush my hair.
What hairstyles make you feel the most confident?
I recently cut my hair a bit shorter which I like. I also like to do a lot of high ponytails!
Was there ever a time you didn't feel comfortable with your hair?
I remember in elementary and middle school that I wanted side bangs and to straighten my hair to be like everyone else even though it didn't work with my hair type. Looking back at pictures of those hair styles make me cringe so thank you mom for never letting me do that!
What's one care trick that always works for you?
I'm lucky that my hair is very manageable and just a little wavy. Sometimes I use leftover lotion on my hands to smooth out frizz and add some scent.
How has your relationship with your hair changed over time?
Though I didn't always love how much hair I had, now I love that I have thick hair. I also know I will never look bald when I'm older, ha!
Do you have a hair icon/ someone in your life you look to for inspiration?
Not a person but a dark-haired Afghan Hound! They are so regal and elegant.
