A magic moment with Sunsilk

Having subjected my tresses to numerous hair treatments like perming and coloring, my hair is now a reduced to tangly haystack. I am always on a lookout for shampoos and conditioners for “severely damaged hair” that can straighten and smoothen my hair that curl up after every head-wash. This is when I got a perm treatment some three years back!

When I received my sample of the brand new Sunsilk shampoo and conditioner with “straight-lock technology for stunningly straight hair”, my expectations were high. I am a Loreal loyalist who uses super expensive hair mask after every wash to untangle knots and deep conditioning. So obviously, I was apprehensive about using this product and shocking my mane, but eventually I decided to go ahead with this Unilever product.

The duo pack came with a strong claim that this technology “keeps hair fully aligned as it dries”. So the question is – did they fulfill the great promise? I began with slathering this mild-scented lilac-colored shampoo onto my scalp. The rinse was followed by the application of the conditioner and I let it stay into my hair for atleast 3-4 minutes. I massaged the potion into circular movements for maximum coverage. I deliberately did not blow dry my hair to gauge the results correctly.

I was pleasantly surprised to feel soft ends that were air-drying in the sunshine. The net result was manageable, knot-free smooth hair where I could run fingers without having to stop midway. There was little hair breakage and I could easily smoothen my mane with a comb.

I would be lying if I say that I had salon like hair – just the kinds you get after ironing or blow-drying. Yet, I can confidently say they were bouncy and fairly straight! Sunsilk has teamed up with Yuko Yamashita, international Straight Hair Expert from Japan, to co-create this Sunsilk Straight range. At one-fourth the price, Sunsilk has created high-end cosmetic products that can cheer up many girls like me.
