REVIEW : DOVE Hair Fall Rescue Intensive Hair Tonic

Hello Sweetpeas! If you have been with me, you probably know that I'm blessed with super high density hair. Yeap! I've a lot of hair, but unfortunately I had been suffering from excessive hair fall for a couple of years. Initially, I really didn't think much of it, until it started getting worse. My hair became brittle and prone to breakage. Due to these conditions, my hair fell out so bad and yeap, it really freaked me out. Normally, everyone loses between 100 to 150 strands of hair each day. In my case, I lost more than 200 strands of hair per day. Mm..hmmmm, I counted them all the time!  In all seriousness I had no idea how to stop my hair from falling. So it wasn't until recently I have had the opportunity to try Dove Hair Fall Rescue Intensive Hair Tonic, and guess what? My hair fall has stopped since after 2 weeks of trying this amazing product. Now, let's find out more about this product, shall we?
