Thankfully though, there are many easy steps you can take to restore hydration, shine and health to your tresses. And also ways to keep it from getting dry and damaged in the first place.

Of course we’ve all heard that drinking eight glasses of water will hydrate your skin, but according to whom? And then there’s the old tale that toothpaste will get rid of pimples. Or that washing your hair less makes it more healthy. We  have heard that regular trims will actually make our hair grow
