In fact, in all probability, you even find you can’t leave your hair loose for fear of being compared to a bush or a well-used broomstick.

Nowadays, the increasing pollution levels also contribute to making your hair dry, dull and frizzy.

Nonetheless, the damage is not irreversible and can be easily undone if you start now.
