The traditional Mangtika is worn with the hair mid parted. Using a comb, you need to part down the mid of your hair. Make sure to part your hair straight. Make a simple bun to hold your hair firmly. Secure with bobby pins after you twist your hair into a coil. Now place the Mangtika in such a way that the chain flows through the parting in your hair and the ornament sits in your forehead 1-2 inches below the hairline. Secure the chain in the hair at the end. The end of the trail has a hook through which you need to put a bobby pin and pin it up with the hair. Secure the front of the Mangtika with a bobby pin also so that they do not move but make sure not to show the pin. You can use hair sprays to hold the style in place through the function. Apart from this way also, you can wear your Mangtika in different styles. Mangtika can also be worn with full back brush or side parting depending on the occasion and the look that you want to sport.

To keep your stone engrafted Mangtika primp and proper, you will need mild detergent, distilled water kept at room temperature, a microfiber cloth, a mixing bowl and lint free cotton towel. With lukewarm water, mix the detergent and soak the Mangtika for about five to ten minutes and wipe it using the cotton towel. After the dirt accumulation has been wiped away, rinse it thoroughly. Remember to check if the soap residues have been rinsed. When it is fully clean, wipe it dry with a microfiber cloth. Immediately after applying perfume, hair sprays or hand creams, it's recommended that you do not wear the jewellery. Don't wear the jewellery at the time of bathing, exercising or while sleeping. This will put unnecessary stress on the stones and cause extra wear and tear. Never put your Mangtika in a dishwasher or a machine of any type. Exposure to high temperature will cause the crystals to expand and then crack. If you use abrasive detergent, it will turn the crystals cloudy and the golden polish will fade. Remember not to place your jewellery in any sonic cleaners, hot boiling water or commercial jewellery cleaners. They tend to contain high amounts of alcohol or ammonia in them which can be very dangerous for the crystals and the golden plating.
