I experiment a lot when it comes to taking care of my skin and hair. Since the day I started using 100% organic or natural ingredients for my hair , the quality of my hair started changing a lot for good , especially there is a huge noticeable difference in the texture. My hair had always been thin which is why I used to chop my hair off as soon as it grew till my shoulders.
Trying a variety of organic oils in my hair packs , oils and conditioners have made the texture of my hair really thick and guess what the speed of my hair growth is beyond amazing now.
You can actually see a clear difference in the length of my hair in this post –My Old Hair Care Routine.
