But that does not stop it from being the worst feeling in the world. If you relate to this, you will be happy to know that there are measures you can take to restore your hair’s luster and volume.

Hibiscus is one of the most renowned herbs used for hair growth. It has gained popularity because of its ability to stimulate hair growth even from dormant hair follicles in bald patches.
