    Do You Want Your Thicker, Longer Hair Back?

    Blame it on genes, ageing, hormonal imbalances, malnutrition, certain allergies, pollution or physical stress or emotional stress; anything and everything can cause your hair to thin. Shampoos and repairing serums help even less. Cutting your hair and styling can only make your hair look better for a week and after that your hair volume shows its true colours. Going the natural way to grow your hair thicker is wise because it doesn’t pose any side-effects and is convenient to apply. Image Courtesy: Getty
