10 Haircare brands that are topping the charts in 2021
Don’t we all wish that every single day was a great hair day? But your hair usually has a mood of its own. And unless you have the right products and routine in place, your tresses will continue to rebel and be damaged, frizzy, and weak.
Fortunately, we now have a wide variety of hair care brands and products available in the Indian market, formulated with some of the best ingredients, that can tame everyday hair problems.
Brands are now saying goodbye to one size fits all products, and creating a dedicated range for all hair types and textures. In fact, there are some brands that are dedicated to a particular hair type too – from curly hair to oily scalps, they cover it all.
But with a large number of options available, it becomes hard to know which brand will really deliver what it promises. Our beauty team has made it easier for you, so ‘hair’ we go with our top ten recommendations of haircare brands:
