Every woman’s dream, irrespective of hair style, is having a healthy looking and luscious hair. But the truth is that some of us are born with dull, ugly, dry and frizzy hair and we have nobody but nature to blame.
Even if you were lucky enough to be born with healthy looking and luscious mane, there are factors that can cause hair dryness. Factors like pollution, chemical treatments and heat styling tools. What this means is, hair dryness for some people, is inevitable.
Charity begins at home, which is why a good place to raid if you are dealing with dryness is your kitchen. Using ingredients in your kitchen is not just very cost effective but also gives you the same, and sometimes even better results than most high-end chemical-infused hair treatments.
Though some of these natural treatments take longer to show results, you will come to see the benefits in the long run and your hair will be eternally grateful.
