Here’s how to do it.

Step 1

Use the right shampoo for your hair needs

Never forget the first and most important step for hairstyling—washing your hair so it’s clean and healthy. If you’re dealing with hair fall, we highly recommend Dove Hair Fall Rescue Shampoo which is great for reducing falling strands and strengthening weak and fragile hair. Styling can cause trauma to the roots but with this shampoo, paired with Dove Hair Fall Rescue Conditioner, your hair can be more resilient.
