Godrej started its journey in the hair colour category way back in 1974 with its shampoo based liquid hair dye. That was the beginning of a great future. We have, ever since, revolutionized the category. We introduced hair colour in powder format, making hair colouring an absolutely simple and convenient process.

Then came 1995, when Godrej started the so called “sachet revolution” in hair colours, with the launch of powder hair dye sachet. Available at Rs.7, this gave the power of hair colouring to every Indian! So, we created the hair colour market & we democratized the hair colour market!

But we didn’t stop there, we moved ahead, launched shades in powders, and pushed the powder formula with herbal-based powder hair colour. We then went on to create one of the most innovative products in this category, a never seen before product - a powder that becomes a gel, Godrej Expert Advanced. This non-drip product with extra conditioning overcame many of the existing format limitations and made powder hair colouring a hassle-free, non-messy affair.
