Conditioners are known to nourish and protect, style and smoothen frizzy, unruly hair and the Sunsilk Conditioner range focuses on highlighting the many benefits of silky smooth hair.
The main purpose of this is the need to condition unruly hair and therefore conditioners need to be used in conjunction with shampoo.Therefore Sunsilk recent campaign #shampooaloneisnotenough was launched with a fun event held at the recently opened, luxury boutique salon, Bellagio by Sadaf on Saturday, September 9th.
