The shock on her face is palpable as she realizes her hair has taken the shape of stubborn horns - a creative leap to represent hair damage that is difficult to manage.

With a contemporary twist, the classic song “Kya kare kya na karein” from the movie Rangeela playing in the background perfectly highlights her frustration of not being able manage her stubborn hair bringing alive the analogy of it being as difficult as taming a bull!

Just then, her friend puts her out of her misery by suggesting that she use Hair & Care Triple Blend – a nourishing, non-sticky hair oil enriched with three natural ingredients Aloe Vera, Olive Oil, and Green Tea – that repairs up to 100%* of hair damage. The film concludes with a reparative hair transformation, from damaged to soft, smooth hair, healthy hair.

With the evolving needs of the modern lifestyle coupled with environmental aggressors like heat, dust, pollution, we have come up with a triple blend oil with a mix of Aloe Vera, Olive Oil & Green Tea which best takes care of damaged hair. In Rubal Shekhawat, we found a perfect representation of every young girl today who is challenged with the issue of hair damage due to heat, dust & pollution”.

Speaking on the creative conceptualization of this TVC, Talha Bin Mohsin & Mahesh Parab, executive creative directors, Team WPP said, “It’s always a challenge when you set out to create something that can stand out in an overcrowded category. With up to 100%* damage repair as our new proposition, we found a unique way to exaggerate damage and the feeling of helplessness one feels when trying to control unmanageable, damaged hair. The result is a quirky and visually disruptive film and campaign that we hope people will resonate with and remember.”
