Homemade Hair Masks

Let’s face it – we women do a lot! Balancing work and home and juggling both responsibilities well is the most common concern of every single day of a working woman’s life… and if you are a housewife, it’s even tougher, because the job is never finished! One thing gets checked off the to-do list, and two more get added. The pressure of keeping up with all our duties and responsibilities is all too real to be ignored, and it only increases manifold as motherhood approaches.

Right from the time you conceive, to the time your baby is delivered, and then onwards till your child becomes a self-sufficient and independent adult – women are constantly stressed about one thing or the other. All this stress takes a toll on your health, and one of the first things to show signs of stress is your hair.
