Ranveer Singh’s hairstylist Darshan Yewalkar talks about actor’s hair care routine
Most of us idolise our celebs who seem to have the perfect skin, hair, and physique. However, little do we know the amount of work that goes in to achieve a particular style, texture and one looking flawless in front of the camera. Men often face challenges of having healthy hair during winter as several issues like dandruff, dry and itchy scalp, hair loss occurs.
Celebrity hairstylist Darshan Yewalkar, who has styled actor Ranveer Singh’s hair over the last 8 years and also owns a posh barbershop in Mumbai, spoke to us about all that goes behind styling an actor’s hair or someone who has to go up in front of the camera. He said, “The field of hair has transformed so much. Ranveer and I were discussing that in years we have done so much possibly with one head. There is so much we experimented. So many times, while in pandemic when, we got time to reflect on it. It is very different to style for an actor than a person who is coming to the barbershop to get his monthly haircut done.”
He spoke about the grooming part that has transformed over the years and how there are many factors that go into styling a celeb’s hair. “Of course the styling and grooming part has also transformed in the city. but styling an actor will always have challenges. I think it’s a process. So when you’re styling an actor there are many factors we have to consider. If we’re doing a film then what is required for the film then we have a healthy discussion and then we zero down the process. We do a look test before a film,” he added.
He shared Ranveer’s hair care routine and it is simple but effective. However, one must note that everybody’s hair is different and the requirement for a routine in place is customised according to hair type and texture.
“Everyone’s scalp is different, everyone’s routine is different and even the hair texture is different. Everybody’s requirement is different. Like for Ranveer, if it’s a look heavy film, then we make sure that every 15 days interval we have a proper spa,” he said.
“The hair every day goes through rigorous hot tong and a lot of products. So in a way, it takes a toll. We make sure that the products are correct which are required for the hair texture. And also, regular use of argan oil. But in all products keep changing according to the movies we do,” he added.
Things to learn from Ranveer Singh’s hair care routine
One must oil regularly which helps the hair from excessive heat and damage. Just like Darshan shared if you’re someone whose hair goes through regular styling with heating tools, one has to use an oil that suits their hair and avoids breakage.
This routine helps the hair to grow and nourishes the scalp. A hair spa involves massaging, steaming, washing the hair, and then a serum. The treatment lasts around 15-20 days. If you have damaged hair, you need to get a hair spa done.
While it is important to shampoo and condition your hair regularly, it is also important that while you use equipment to style your hair, you also use products like heat-protecting sprays that suit your hair instead of damaging it.
