The air pollution in most urban environments damages a person’s crowning glory, much as it harms the skin and lungs. Microscopic dust and dirt cling on to your hair strands, making it brittle, dull, and lifeless. In addition, the toxic air pollutants irritate the scalp, causing severe itchiness, dandruff, and hair fall. If you want to maintain a healthy mane, you must invest in good hair products that protect your tresses from pollution.
