01. Hair fall - TRESemmé’s Hair Fall Defense Shampoo
Tired of finding hair on your pillowcases, in the drain and basically everywhere you go? Well, it looks like it's time to switch to the TRESemmé Hair Fall Defense Shampoo. This shampoo is formulated with keratin proteins that help strengthen hair and prevent hair fall by up to 97% after just one wash. It also makes your hair smoother, shinier and easy to detangle, which again helps reduce hair fall due to combing. You’d see visibly less hair fall as your hair gets stronger and longer with regular use of this one.
02. Dandruff - Dove Dandruff Clean & Fresh Shampoo
If you have had enough of the constant itchiness and embarrassing white flakes on your shoulder and hair, you need to get your hands on the Dove Dandruff Clean & Fresh Shampoo. You know how most dandruff shampoos leave your hair dry post-use? Well, this one won’t do that. It’s formulated with a unique micro moisture serum that eliminates dandruff while moisturising your hair simultaneously. The shampoo also provides a cooling sensation, which is much-needed to soothe the inflammation caused due to itching.
03. Coloured hair - TRESemmé Pro Protect Sulphate Free Shampoo
Chemicals like ammonia and hydrogen peroxide in hair dyes end up leaving your hair rough and damaged, which requires a lot of care to replenish the shine and nourishment. The TRESemmé Pro Protect Sulphate Free Shampoo is perfect for your colour-treated hair. This one doesn’t contain sulphates (known to strip hair colour) and is paraben-free too. It gently cleanses your hair and comes with Moroccan argan oil that nourishes your hair, leaving them with lasting vibrancy and shine.
04. Frizzy hair - Love Beauty & Planet Natural Argan Oil & Lavender Anti-Frizz Shampoo
High humidity levels, regular use of heat styling tools, overwashing, split ends, etc. — several factors can turn your mane frizzy. That’s why you need to get your hands on the Love Beauty & Planet Natural Argan Oil & Lavender Anti-Frizz Shampoo. It’s made with hand-crushed argan oil that’s know to give you smooth and frizz-free tresses. Plus, the scent of ethically sourced French lavender will leave your mane with a calming aroma. The best part? This brand is vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, dye-free and silicone-free, and its products are packed in 100% recycled plastic — so you know your tresses (AND the planet) are in safe hands.
05. hair - Dove Intense Repair Shampoo For Damaged Hair
Everything, from stress to overwashing to excessive use of heat styling tools, causes hair damage. If your hair looks like it’s in serious need of intervention, you need to get your hands on the Dove Intense Repair Shampoo For Damaged Hair. Enriched with fibre actives and ¼ moisturising milk that is good for nourishing your hair, this shampoo deeply repairs damaged hair while giving you a smooth, soft and healthy mane. What we love is that this shampoo has no parabens or dyes, making it an even better option for your damaged hair.
06. Limp and flat hair - Love Beauty & Planet Natural Coconut Water & Mimosa Volume Shampoo
Did you know that excessive sebum production on the scalp can weigh your hair down and make it look limp and lifeless? And using a harsh shampoo will only strip all the natural oils and make your sebaceous glands produce more oil to make up for the lack of it. A vicious cycle you don’t want to fall into. That’s why you need to get your hands on the Love Beauty & Planet’s Natural Coconut Water & Mimosa Volume Shampoo. Formulated with plant-based cleansers and sustainably sourced coconut water, this shampoo provides intense hydration and gives a boost of volume and bounce to your limp and lifeless tresses. Additionally, the Morrocan mimosas in it leave your hair with a long-lasting floral scent. What’s not to love?
