Fellow readers, we all know that daily hair care is something that is just not easy to manage! From changing seasons, to our hormones, lifestyles and more, we need to modify our hair care routines every once in a while.
While this can be a tad bit expensive and intensive affair, sometimes finding the right, effective products that actually work and don’t burn a hole in your pocket can be quite hard!
Well, worry not! We’ve got your back! Or should i say? We’ve made a complete list of every product you should try for any and every concern. So without further ado, let’s get into it!
Frizzy, busy days!
Frizz is so common today, especially in the humid climate we live in. But be it winter or summer, those unwanted flyaways need to be tamed. Using nourishing ingredients like Avocado can be a gamechanger in your routine! This nourishing superfood isn’t just a wonder when consumed orally, but also when applied!
Sublime recommends the Anatomicals Follicle Oracle Avocado Shampoo And Conditioner - ideal for dry, dehydrated or frizzy hair, it packs Avocado and Aloe Vera in a 2 in 1 product to cleanse your hair, nourish it and add that extra shine we desperately yearn for! The best part? It even repairs damaged ends and tames those flyaways we absolutely hate! Bye bye baby hair!
Dandruff & itchy scalp
Let’s be real. Dandruff is something we’ve all faced in our lives. Those white annoying flakes can be a result of an oily or dry scalp, and haunt many of us, especially when we wear black! We get it! You wouldn’t want to be caught dead with those ever!
While trying to treat this, a common mistake we tend to make is using super harsh shampoos to fight dandruff, that can strip our natural oils and leave our hair in a more vulnerable condition. So wait, what’s the real solution? A gentle, cleansing treatment that’s mild yet does the job!
Sublime recommends the Detoxie Anti-Dandruff & Flake Relief Capsicum Shampoo, a solution for all hair types, including curly hair. It has a mix of Capsicum extract, Curry Leaf, Fenugreek and Vegetable keratins (all superfoods by the way!) that removes dandruff while conditioning the scalp. So yes your scalp will be squeaky clean leaving no signs of itchiness and dry scalp.
Another gamechanger can be chemical exfoliation! While this is a popular concept in the skincare world, in the haircare world it is somewhat of an alien concept. The Flawsome Mean Clean Pre Clean Treatment is the ideal scalp exfoliator, which has 3% Salicylic Acid, Panthenol and botanical extracts to remove any gunk, oil, dandruff and helps reduce both flakes and itching. Use it before your usual shampoo 1-2 times a week and see the magic!
Dry, dehydrated hair
Sometimes, the best thing to do is return to our roots, and do it the way our ancestors and grandmas did! The ancient remedy of a good old champi or oil massage never gets old. Hot oil treatments are nature's way of conditioning your scalp and giving you lucious, shiny locks!
Sublime recommends the Wishcare Pure Cold pressed Sweet Almond Oil, which preserves the natural nutrients and is far richer in vitamins and minerals. Almond oil keeps your hair hydrated and helps strengthen your hair follicles to keep them healthy. Whenever you massage your hair with cold-pressed Almond Oil, it also helps to clear the frizz and make it shiny as well as smooth. Our favourite part is that this one comes with a comb, for far easier application! Talk about getting the most of the product, eh?

Deep conditioning with a home hair spa
Tired of visiting a salon to get a hair spa done? Picking the right mask for your hair type can help do the job within the comfort of your home as well! When it comes to dry, stressed out or even weak hair, you need a nourishing superfood mask to combat these woes! Also, not to mention - it can be super relaxing and a great way to unwind!
Sublime recommends the Flawsome Kinky Berries Moisturising and Strengthening Mask, which has Acai, Strawberry, Blueberry and more to improve hair strength, moisture and give you a smooth and manageable mane!
Do note: You can use this as either a pre-shampoo mask or between your shampoo and conditioner to experience the magic. Another exciting benefit? Other than the yummy pink colour, it has a super handy travel-sized pack that you can travel easily with too!

Curly hair styling & management
Curly hair beauties, here's a gentle reminder - your hair is not frizzy, it's just curly! Managing your curly hair is the best way to get those juicy, hydrated coils that make your curls look just wow! Following a set regime is just what you need to get the most out of your beautiful hair.
Sublime recommends the Fix My Curls Curl Quenching Flax Seed Gelly, a great post shampoo styling and leave in. It is a great way to detangle as well as style your hair while giving you just the right amount of slip you need! A protein rich gelly, apply it on damp or soaking wet hair and scrunch to reduce hair breakage and see the magic!
Remember, at the end of the day - using expensive products or products that worked for someone else isn’t the solution. Identifying the right treatment for your hair and following it up with consistent use is the best way to really maximise and get the most of your hair care regime. Beautiful, hydrated and well-nourished hair is just a step away (and might we add, all under Rs. 1,000). Happy, healthy hair, here we come!
