Hair which does not have moisture to retain its normal texture is referred to “Dry Hair”. When the outer layer of the hair is damaged, it leads to dry and dull hair. To attain silky, shining and healthy hair you rush to expensive parlours or try harsh chemical products on our hair. Have you ever considered home remedies for dry hair??
