Everyone knows that artificial hair dyes have a negative effect on their structure and gradually destroy it. An alternative option is to dye your hair using folk remedies. The advantages of this method include general improvement and strengthening of hair, obtaining the desired shade, the absence of chemical components that harm the hair.
