Have you noticed that with the onset of cold weather on the comb began to remain more hair? This problem is solvable. Today I want to talk about how to strengthen the hair with the help of a mask from St. John's wort oil and decoction of its herbs.
Slight hair loss in the autumn and spring period is a natural process. However, against the background of beriberi and weakened immunity, you can lose much more than the body planned. To help my hair cope with the cold, I use an oil mask and decoction of Hypericum.
