Why dont u try hairgenesis products.....they really work.
It is essential to use good quality hair care products for effective hair treatment. There are various companies in the market that offer hair care products. However, hair care products are made keeping in mind the specific hair qualities and its related problems. It is therefore very important to select the products that suit your hair style, hair type and hair problems.

I hv used their shampoo, conditioner, oral soft will find the difference in few weeks. You can get the products at
