In continuation of our series in an effort to rescue thin, fine hair from its long-standing enemy in grease for full, free-flowing tresses that don’t need washing every alternate day: 

Schwarzkopf BC Volume Boost Shampoo

Thin hair is an oil magnet. The Schwarzkopf Volume Boost extracts excess oil that weighs your hair down giving it the limp structure you hate. Additional thickeners in the shampoo create a gel-like consistency that makes hair feel fuller without overburdening it.

Biotique Bio Walnut Bark Body Building Shampoo

A well-known ‘lifting’ shampoo, this body-building formula is a rich blend of classic herbal ingredients including pure walnut bark, Amla, Musk and Reetha. While walnut bark is a revered scrubbing agent, amla powder soaks in all the excess oil from the scalp along with deep conditioning it. Finally, Reetha (soapnut) works its magic as a natural surfactant courtesy all the saponins (a compound that makes foam when shaken with water) that it is rich in.

Shahnaz Husain Shahenna

Henna has rescued women from a multitude of hair problems for centuries now. The popular beauty herb calms down overactive sebaceous glands to control oil production, restoring the natural acid-alkaline balance of the scalp. Infused with the goodness of henna is Shahnaz Husain’s Shahenna that thickens your hair while bringing back its natural oil balance. The tannins present in henna quite literally bind to your hair, giving it a thicker and stronger appearance. Natural cleansers such as Brahmi, Arishtak, Shikakai, mint and lemon deep cleanse as well as conditions for healthy, full of body hair.
