It's hard to find those headlamp sealants here in Malaysia. I know they exist, but they also cost like RM50 per bottle. I usually ask the detailer to add normal car wax on top of the headlamp.

Anyway, to answer TS' question, go to car washes or car detailers. Expect to pay more than RM60 to clean the headlamps.

I have tried a few DIY headlamp restoration. For best results, you must sand the surface. After done sanding, apply a layer of coating.

Don't get those small bottle coating. Those are in consistent. Get the one with spray. Works great for me.

Or you can try using toothpaste method. Works for some people.

Basically, after sanding and polishing, you need to apply few layers of clear coating to prevent UV ray from turning the headlight yellowish.

The toothpaste method did work for me but mine was just a little yellow. I guess the tooth paste method also depends on how bad the condition of the head lamps are as well.
