Dust, pollution, dirt and other elements can make your hair sticky, dirty and even leave you with a smelly scalp (eww). To prevent your hair from damage and keep odour at bay, you need to cleanse your hair with a gentle yet deep cleansing and refreshing formula.

Is there anything more gentle and refreshing than natural ingredients? We think not! Green tea is one such ingredient you need to add to your hair care routine for long and lustrous tresses. Here are all the benefits of green tea for your hair:
