Put the ohhh into la la la.
With my delicious homemade hair treatments.
There is after all, a lot of truth in the old cliche having a bad hair day.
If you feel bad about the way your hair looks and feels, it can really affect your morale and mood.
Hair that is dull and lifeless, is a reflection of poor health.
Natural shiny hair, with plenty of bounce and va va voom on the other hand, reflects someone who has a vibrant healthy glow.
So if you feel that your tresses are in serious need of a destress, look no further, and give your locks the TLC they need, with these simple yet effective, homemade hair treatments.
