For hairs

Charcoal improves hair volume; it works just like dry shampoo. It absorbs oil from greasy hair. The good part is unlike shampoo that contains chemicals, the charcoal is made from a natural product.




For bloating

Charcoal is not just for skin and hair, it is also use to reduce bloating. It detoxes your system, as the particles pass through your system they work to absorb toxins before your body does.
