Being born and brought up in a Pakistani household brings a lot of totkas and mashwaray while growing up. And sadly, if you’re overweight, skinny, or have thin hair, and don’t take the responsibility of taking care of the issues, brace yourself for ‘taanas’ uthte bethte… Even if it is not THAT big of an issue, it will be, if you have relatives around you!
Are these the things you have to face?
1. Your weekly hair care routine comprises of spending hours on applying oil, yogurt, and eggs – just because your Dadi said so…
2. Forget about straightening them, they will get greasier, faster than a blink of an eye!
3. Your hair looks oily just after a day of washing them
4. Multiple attempts on making a hair bun have always failed
5. Watching shampoo ads just make you envious of those who have beautiful, thick hair
6. Experiencing extreme frizz and static on changing weather
7. Checking out all the latest hairstyling trends. Sadly, you can just drool over them
8. Tolerating the ‘muft k totkay’ from every other auntie on how to make your baal ‘ghanay’
9. You’ll never know the feeling of sporting a sleek ponytail
10. Researching on products online that may make your hair look thick and voluminous, which are expensive AF
11. But to your dismay, you can’t find a single, affordable product
