Asian hair is the thickest and the strongest, in comparison with the hair type of the other countries of the world but it is also susceptible to over exposure of the sun, which leads to tangling and drying problems. Which is why Asian hair needs a more specific hair care routine. It is also important to be aware that the condition of the hair is a strong reflection of one’s overall health and it is a good indication whether your body is receiving and processing a sufficient amount of vitamins and nutrients to keep you in good health. There is no doubt that having a head of nice hair is a huge confidence booster.
