Natural and Homemade Shampoos for Hair Care
The hair is a cylinder, strengthened by cell keratin, which is more or less intensely colored by a black pigment called melanin. The fiber, which in its external part is resistant, it is very sensitive and the most susceptible to damage in its short base when passing through the skin.
When the fiber is damaged in the most sensitive part, then quickly degenerates and dies. It is therefore very important to use natural products for hair care, rather than industrial, which are packed with a variety of harmful chemicals.
