If you check out the ingredient list of the semi-liquid thing called shampoo. that we stack on our hair during the process of washing it, you will probably find tons of chemicals and maybe a very few natural ingredients. Now that includes the herbal ones too. Even baby shampoos contain a lot of chemicals; sad but true. Are these shampoos really helping, in cleansing yes; but what about all the damages these shampoos are causing.
