Many of us struggle to achieve a good volume of hair despite trying the various promising hair products. It is essential to understand that excessive use of chemical products damages the hair follicles. So, try to keep it simple and easy. Be consistent with natural herbs, and you will see phenomenal results in no time.
Another important thing is that the health of your hair also reveals a lot about your health status. It does not matter how long hairs you have, but if they are weak and brittle, it tells that you may have some deficiencies inside your body.
If you eat a nutrient-deficient diet and follow a bad lifestyle routine, it will significantly impact your overall health. As a result, you may see severe hair fall and other symptoms.
