    Amp up your haircare routine with these frizz-fighting hair masks

    The dreaded F-word of haircare concerns is no picnic to deal with, especially when you factor in the daily toll that ever-escalating levels of pollution and humidity has on your strands. Preeti Singh, director, Rock Paper Scissor Salon, explains the connection between the two. “The different products that our hair is subjected to daily strip away the moisture from the shaft, which compels your hair to seek moisture from the humidity in the climate. This leads to the formation of hydrogen bonds between water molecules and proteins, which is why you’ll find that you have a hard time holding a blow-dry in place once you step outdoors,” she says. Helping…

    Ask the Experts: I always take my vitamin supplement with my morning tea, is this wrong?

    Q: I always take my vitamin supplement with my morning tea. But now I hear that tea can keep some vitamins from being absorbed. Is this true? Maggie, 40 Black tea can prevent the absorption of iron, which is a big issue for many women. Generally speaking, caffeine isn’t good for the balance of your stomach acid, making it harder to absorb important minerals such as iron and calcium, as well as vitamin B12, lack of which reduces iron absorption too. Don’t switch to coffee, though, because that also blocks iron, magnesium and potassium. Consider a good-quality green tea if you need something to charge you up first thing, or…
