Blame the brutal winter winds or the pollution, but dry hair really goes through a rough time in this season. However, there are a few products you can use, that will help you show some TLC to dry hair. Picking your shampoo would be the first step. Finding a shampoo that gently cleanses your hair, while taming the frizz could be a little challenging. But before we dive into that, let’s take a deep breath and explore a list of other products that you might need to repair dry and damaged hair.

Keratin and Rice Protein

If your hair has gone through heavy chemical treatments, you can be sure that it will need some moisture and care. Vedic Line’s Hair Tonic with Keratin and Rice Protein renews damaged hair to make it stronger and smoother with repeated use. Add a few drop of this product to your hair and then rinse off with shampoo, do this once or twice a week to see results.

Keratin Mask

Damaged and curly hair that is difficult to maintain and to untangle, makes this next product a lifesaver. This hair mask by Schwarzkopf repairs each strand without leaving any residue and reducing the chance of split ends. It also smoothes unruly hair to make it more manageable all while leaving your curls feeling loved.

Leave-in Conditioner

Severely damaged hair that needs round-the-clock hydration will require a leave-in conditioner. We suggest going for one made with 100% natural ingredients like Juicy Chemistry’s  Amla, Apricot & Almond leave in conditioner. It softens hair and brings back its body and shine. Simply use it on towel dry hair and style as you like.

Colour Protection

Dry hair can be caused by repeated colouring too, which is why you need to look after hair that has been coloured. Brillare Science’s Shampoo Colour Protect has grapeseed oil, which is a natural cleanser and antioxidant that it gently cleans coloured hair while protecting it from fading.

Breakage Cures

Dry hair tends to break easily which constitutes hair fall and frizz. Using a serum like Organix Coconut Milk Anti-breakage helps to mend split ends, damaged hair and cuticles. Its keratin proteins and coconut milk formula strengthens hair and reduces damage caused by weak and brittle hair.

POPxo recommends: Organix Coconut Milk Anti-breakage Serum (Rs 625)

Oil Treatments

When it comes to hydrating the hair and the scalp nothing works better than regular oil treatments especially if you use Moroccanoil. Its formula helps to maintain and restore any lost fatty acids, omega 3s and vitamins in your hair. Many who have used this product vouch for it saying their hair is healthier and shinier after repeated use.

POPxo recommends: Moroccanoil Treatment (Rs 2880)


Always have a shampoo and conditioner that is specifically made for dry hair, if you have this hair type. Dry and damaged hair needs hydration and it is imperative to pick the right shampoo specifically. Following that with conditioner is a no-brainer, but shampoo is where it begins. You need to make sure you use a shampoo that does not strip your hair of its natural oils while it cleanses your scalp. Here are a few shampoos for dry hair that we thought would be great!
