Top 3 Masks for hair Growth
Hair fall is one of the most common things we are still fighting today. There are several reasons for hair fall and reduced growth of hair. We all dream of those long, healthy lustrous locks and will do anything to get them. However chemical treatments and spa dates are something which some cannot afford to do on a regular basis due to the work load and pressure. Chemical treatments may make the hair look shiny and voluminous but they can also cause damage to the roots leading to hair thinning and hair fall. Another common reason for hair loss and thinning is the constant use of heat styling products and the various sprays and mousses. They heat from the curling and straightening devices along with the chemicals in those expensive colourful bottles cause a huge damage on the hair and its follicles and even lead to its permanent damage.
