Defying stereotypes surrounding South Asian women, vivacious presenter, Anushka Arora is the epitome of today’s modern South Asian woman.
Ever since she was 18, Anushka was passionate about media and wanted to get into the world of show business. She knew the journey wouldn’t be easy, but with her family’s support, lots of self-confidence and determination, she took up every challenge that came her way and today she is one of the most sought after presenters for every major Bollywood event in town.
'I was so adamant about moving up the ladder that no matter what came my way, whether it was a graveyard shift or travelling to Birmingham, I always took up every job and gave it my best. Today I am not only producing my own show but also hosting shows with some of the biggest celebrities like Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone!'
From driving to the studio or producing a show to presenting an event every other evening, one thing that really boosts Anushka Arora’s confidence is having a good hair day.
'I can’t stress enough about how important it is for me to have a good hair day. I always go the extra mile to find products that are traditional and suit my South Asian hair type. Whether I am attending a small film screening or hosting a radio show, I need to regularly oil, shampoo and condition my hair.
'I massage my hair with Vatika Natural’s coconut enriched hair oil before washing and conditioning it with Vatika Natural’s acacia range. I prefer Vatika Natural’s because it nourishes my hair while taking care of the critical balance of nutrients. Vatika Natural’s hair care range is enriched with the goodness of time-tested herbs which works magic on my hair.'
Asked about her winter haircare tips, Anushka said: 'Winter is my hair’s number one enemy. The harsh cold weather damages my hair and leaves it feeling dry and causes split ends. But because Vatika Naturals has a range of products perfectly suited for the winter months, I’ve found my perfect solution.
Vatika Naturals almond range is great for my dry hair. My favourite is their extreme moisturising styling cream. I apply it after my shower and as the name suggests it leaves my hair feeling moisturised, protected and perfectly styled.
'I always turn to Vatika Naturals egg and honey range to help mend my hair. The egg protein hair mask coats each strand and helps my hair retain its moisture and look healthy once again, ' says Anushka.
