The humid climate in our country brings out the worst hair problems. One of our biggest hair enemies? Sweat. It leads to: 1) Our hair smelling bad after a long commute or even a short walk under the sun and 2) Our locks falling flat on the roots and getting all oily and sticky.
Luckily, brands have heard all of our hair woes. They've created products that will leave Pinay tresses smelling good and feeling fresh, even after being exposed to sweat and dirt. Here, we rounded up your next shower mainstays: lightweight and purifying shampoos to leave your hair clean, bouncy, and never oily!
