Living in a tropical country poses a lot of challenges. One that's overlooked is how often we're exposed to harsh sun. Sure, the use of SPF has been pushed on us time and time again but our hair takes a lot of damage too. It's a dangerous cocktail of sun damage, sweat, and constant pollution.

Look after yourself and pick up the right kind of shampoo for your hair. Here are the best shampoos for Filipino hair that can beat the absurdly hot Philippine weather.
