Don’t ever skip conditioner, especially after you’ve played with all those dry colours.

To retain the health and shine of your hair, treat your tresses to a hair mask rich in ingredients such as eggs, lemon, yoghurt and amla. If you don’t want to opt for a DIY treatment, then simply book a hair spa appointment with Lakmé Salon and leave it on the experts to give your hair a soft and shiny finish.
