Director(s): François Guillaume • Producer(s): Grand Angle Productions • Coproducer(s): France Télévisions • Country of production: France • Format(s): HD

Ambre travels to India, where women's hair is considered the most beautiful in the world. So much so that it's the subject of a thriving business. Our globetrotting hairdresser realizes that hair is a powerful symbol of religious affiliation and status within society. India is also the birthplace of the term "shampoo". From Bombay to New Delhi, via Varanasi and Chennai, she will come across different communities and religions: Hindus, Sikhs, but also surprising beliefs such as hair donation. Ayurvedic plants will hold no secrets for her, nor the new hair techniques passed on to her by the hairdressers of Bollywood superstars.
