Who else has been trying to grow their hair to no avail? ?

(Rach says she's been trying for decades!)

We turned to Indian beauty blogger Ritu Rajput for a bit of advice, because, well, watch the video above and tell us you don’t envy her locks.

And if you want to follow in her footsteps, there are two main changes you should start making to your hair routine right away.

"For Indian women, oiling our hair on a weekly basis is really important," Ritu explains. "Since I’m a working professional, I like to oil my hair only on weekends."

All you have to do is put warm oil on your hands (Ritu prefers almond oil) and apply it to your scalp and to the ends of your hair.

Ritu leaves the oil in her hair for a few hours and then simply washes it out.

"It gives me shiny and healthy, strong hair," the bloggers assures.

Now, speaking of washing your hair, you may be doing it wrong.

Ritu says Indian women tend to flip their hair over, apply shampoo and massage the scalp as they’re shampooing it.

“This way,” she explains, “all the product does not get concentrated in one area."

So, no, they don't just drop a dollop of shampoo on the top of their heads and hope it evenly applies and washes out. (Woops!)
