When I was in college, I used to admire Bollywood celebrities for their unique sense of style. Who could point a finger at me? Their hair and make-up game always looked flawless and fashionable! Even though I knew they had a team of stylists who made them look perfect, I was curious to know that behind the scenes, which hair products were they loyal to. (Yes, I was determined to find out their deepest, darkest hair care secrets.) Like us, have they also tried experimenting with homemade hair masks? If so, I wanted to know it ALL! If you’re eager to know the same, here’s what hair products your favourite celebrities really use on their hair.
Notice how gorgeous Deepika Padukone’s hair actually is? It’s thick, long and glossy. The hair product behind this healthy mane is taking meticulous care. She is know to pop her supplements and be regular with hair spas. But one thing that hasn’t changed is a good ol’ champi! According to the actress, she gets an oil and scalp massage every once a week! Apparently, it helps protects her locks from damage caused by climate and travel.

Hairfall and dandruff are Kareena Kapoor’s biggest hair concerns. The Head & Shoulders Anti Hair Fall Shampoo is like her knight in shiny armour (Apologies, Saif!) After using the shampoo, Bebo then follows it up with a conditioner. Both, the actress and her mom can’t live without using this hair product. On days when she’s away from the shoot life, she likes to massage her hair once a month using any of her 4 favourite hair oils:castor, coconut, almond and olive. To add volume, she’s a huge fan of blow drying.

This may come as a surprise, but Shilpa Shetty’s husband fell in love with her thick hair before the duo got together. Shilpa also confessed that her profession took a toll on her mane initially. Use of harsh products like sprays, gels and styling tools made her hair go from bad to worse. It was only after she started using Pantene products did her hair start to improve for the better. It brought life back into her strands and she now flaunts her thick and healthy mane like a boss lady.

Every alternate day, this diva washes her mane and goes for a hair spa once every two weeks! For stronger, thicker hair, she also uses egg whites as a natural hair mask.
