Hair care from rough/hard water....  ? Which shampoo ir hair conditioner will be best and for skin care too

Use a deep conditioning treatment once a week. Do not comb or twist wet hair. Massage in warm olive oil or coconut oil and leave for 30-40 minutes before washing. Always use lukewarm (not hot) to wash your hair. ...Read more
