Hydrate hydrate hydrate!

One way to combat this is by getting yourself a Moroccan oil head massage that’ll help restore the shine and strength of your locks. Book your appointment with Lakmé Salon and enjoy the spa session your hair will thank you for!
DIY hair masks work like magic
Hair masks are the best solution for everyday hair damage. Give your hair some much-needed TLC with ingredients that’ll keep them nourished and moisturised and protect from pollution. Here’s an easy hair mask recipe – all you need is 1 banana, whole milk and 2 teaspoons cocoa powder. Mix the mashed banana with whole milk and cocoa powder to make a smooth paste. Apply the mask on dry hair and let it sit for 30 minutes before rinsing.
Anti-pollution shampoo and conditioner to your rescue
A good shampoo plays a crucial role in protecting your hair from pollution. The Dove Environmental Defence Shampoo can be your best bet as it is specifically designed to repair and shield hair from damage.
Though washing your hair thrice a week is ideal, it is also important to condition each time you shampoo. Conditioners help reduce frizz and soften your hair. Use the Tresemmé Botanique Detox & Restore Conditioner that gently cleanses your hair of daily residue build-up. Apply it from mid-lengths to the ends of your hair, leave it on for 2-3 minutes and rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
