Is this herb useful for hair
05 Apr 2016
Dear Saira Zafar This Herb is useful in curing dandruff problem. But if you ask if it is good for hair or not. So let me tell you that Hair are linked with the Kidneys. If your kidneys are functioning well, the hair will be healthy. And any Herb that benefits your kidneys will automatically benefit your hair.
