Recipe by Charishma_Ramchanda

Gel, mousse and hair spray are 3 of the most common products that get massaged into our hair everyday. They lift, hold and style hair but also leave a thin layer of residue. Eventually that residue turns into a bone fide build-up and our once bouncy, shiny tresses become dull and lifeless. I have never used gel, mousse or hair spray and I thanked the Goddess for that when I read this in the book 'Spa' Glow Guide : Simple steps for health and well being by Andrea Mc Cloud. My brother suffers from dull hair thanks to gel that he used to use. This recipe has helped him. I hope it will help you too! This will remove the build-up and return your locks to their natural sheen.
