The Challenges
Competitor (Safi) using religious undertones in its communication has garnered market share. Reconnect with the Malay consumers with an authentic proposition to gain market share from competition without religious link.

Insight, Strategy and the Idea
Through research, we chanced upon the perfect insight: “Malay Hijab wearing consumers generally washed their hair every alternate day, but struggled to keep freshness last long.” Sunsilk decided to provide solution to this particular problem. Brand team convinced their regional/global leads to introduce an innovative localized product range in 2017, covering all hair issues faced by Hijab Wearers such as…sticky scalp, hair fall and dandruff. Hijab became a unique solution for brand communication with Malay women New Sunsilk provided up to 48hrs of freshness and fragrance, and that’s how a complete new range of product was added to the portfolio under– ‘Sunsilk Hijab Recharge’. We partnered with Aidi Juma (a popular hijab brand) to launch the Hijab Recharge Range for Sunsilk, and scarves were used to bolster Sunsilk’s penetration among the core Malay audience.
