“Bain & Company, which has come on board from April 1, has been mandated to look at the hair care business and it may or may not be engaged for the overall company strategy. Currently, we are only looking at hair oil and what we can do to increase the rate of growth in hair oil which we are currently around 10 percent market share," Malhotra added.
