Hair that lacks the ability to retain moisture simply cannot maintain its natural shine, texture, and smoothness.
Hair damage primarily occurs due to losing its natural oils which are typically brought about by sunbathing, swimming in a heavily chlorinated water, over-reliance on hair dryers and other hair styling products. People with naturally dry skin also find themselves dealing with hair damage.
