Hair Care Tips For Women In India

What makes Godrej Professional the trusted choice for Indian hair? Because we understand the variety and differentiation Indian hair types have to others. No matter which Indian hair type you have, we have a solution for you. 

1. Normal to Dry Hair

Women in India - normal to dry hair are the most common hair types that you can find. These are characterised by plain, silky strands that might become dry due to hard water, lifestyle changes, or by using the wrong form of haircare products. You need to jolt those tresses once in a while to keep them soft, nourished and smooth. 

Use a professional shampoo with a sulphate free conditioner like the Keratin Rich Shampoo and Mask that adds to your hair protein ‘keratin’, making it healthy and strong.

Usage Recommendation:

  • Thoroughly wet your hair and apply the Keratin Rich Shampoo evenly on your scalp
  • Massage your scalp with gentle, circular motions
  • Run your fingers through the lengths of your hair
  • Rinse well.
  • Apply a generous amount of the Keratin Rich Mask.
  • Use your fingers to distribute and massage the Keratin Rich Mask evenly to the lengths and ends of your hair while avoiding the scalp.
  • Leave it on for three to five minutes and then rinse thoroughly.

This shampoo and sulphate free mask duo is enriched with Hydrolysed Keratin that promotes hair growth. They also work effectively on dry and damaged strands transforming them into soft, shiny and manageable locks. Especially crafted for women in India, you can use this duo upto twice or thrice a week for best results.

P.S.: They can also be used on chemically-treated hair!

2. Dry & Damaged Hair

Women, are you wondering how to take care of your hair? Especially if it gets dry and damaged easily? This is an indication that your scalp isn’t producing its natural oils effectively. This might happen due to a change in weather conditions, poor diet and lifestyle choices, or exposure to the sun and external pollutants that drain the head off its moisture.

Hence, it’s crucial to add products to a hair care routine for women to help the scalp and hair become nourished and hydrated. Our experts suggest using the Honey Moisture Duo containing the Honey Moisture Shampoo & Mask.

How to use this duo for women’s hair care?

  • Wet your hair and apply the Honey Moisture Shampoo evenly on your scalp.
  • Lather it at the roots and then work it through the lengths of your hair.
  • Rinse well.
  • Apply a generous amount of the Honey Moisture Mask to clean and shampooed (damp) hair.
  • Use your fingers to distribute and massage the mask on your scalp.
  • Leave it on for three to five minutes and then rinse thoroughly.

Honey for hair has been used for centuries. Since this is an emollient, it makes the hair follicles smooth while adding shine to dull hair. In fact, it helps in absorbing and retaining moisture in the hair. The infused nourishing oils in this duo also work to rehydrate dry hair by enriching it with antioxidants and vitamins. Use them together for best results.

3. Frizzy Hair

No matter how many hair care products are formulated for women in India, frizzy hair seems to stay as an age-old problem. This is due to the drastic weather changes in the country. Summers become extremely dry in some regions whereas extremely humid in the others. On the contrary, the winter months become drastically cold impacting hair health.

If you are a woman in India with frizzy hair, our experts suggest using either the Quinoa Smooth Duo or the Avocado Nourish Duo. Both combinations work exceptionally well to tame frizzy locks and transform them into soft, smooth and manageable tresses. They contain a professional shampoo and sulphate free hair mask to give your hair the pampering it deserves.

The Quinoa Smooth Duo is infused with Hydrolyzed Quinoa and helps hair in the following ways,

  • It works effectively on dry, rough, and frizzy hair and makes them soft and shiny.
  • It prevents hair breakage and repairs damage by strengthening the hair follicles.
  • It protects your hair from dust and pollution by creating an anti-pollution barrier and is effective in controlling hair fall.
  • It also helps retain hair colour, and hence, can be used on colour-treated hair.

The Avocado Nourish Duo also works to make your hair soft and smooth. Additionally, it helps hair by,

  • Working effectively on damaged and fragile hair making them shiny and silky soft.
  • Restoring fragile hair by improving its strength and boosting its lustre.
  • Doesn’t strip off your hair colour, which makes it safe for colour-treated hair.
  • Preventing frequent hair breakage and repairing damage by imparting strength to the hair follicles.

Choose the right duo depending on what your hair needs. You can find some of the best hair care products for women from the Godrej Professional range.

4. Chemically Treated Hair

If you have coloured hair or have undergone a keratin treatment, your hair is more fragile than other Indian hair types. This is because chemical treatments alter the texture and tenacity of hair and can make them more prone to damage and breakage. Hence, hair care becomes a priority for this hair type and using the best hair care products for women goes a long way.

You can use the Keracare Repair Duo containing a sulphate and paraben free shampoo, and a sulphate free mask.

  • Distribute the mask evenly on the scalp and massage gently with your fingertips.
  • Leave it on for at least five minutes and rinse thoroughly.

Enriched with grapeseed oil and wheat protein, this duo locks in moisture in the strands and controls frizz. It revives chemically treated Indian hair types by making them soft and glossy. Rich in vitamin E, grapeseed oil also encourages the production of linoleic acid that helps restore strength and sheen to weak and fragile hair.

You can use the shampoo twice a week and the sulphate free mask once a week for best results.

5. Dull & Frizzy Hair

Looking for a gentle formulation for your dull and frizzy locks? We suggest using the Keracare Recharge Combo which consists of a sulphate and paraben free mask, and a sulphate free conditioner.
