Jo asks:
Are Sulphate and paraben (SLSs) -free products better to use

Shampooís with these chemicals can be a main culprit for some scalp condition Lauryl sulphate is a cleansing agent, the SAME agent is used in household cleaning products such as bleach, spray air fresheners. If you have to wash your childs hair every day it is best to use sulphate (cleansing agents) and paraben(preservatives) free shampoo every time . It also would be perfectly fine to just run water over the hair too with no products and wash once or twice a week , depending on the type of hair (amount, thickness.)Parabens are preservatives and are only beneficial to the stores so they can buy in bulk and have a long shelf life . Iím presuming a bottle of shampoo lasts 4to5 weeks depending on how many and often it is used. ...More >

As to the safety of these chemicals they can dry out childrens hair and skin and sometimes cause irritation.

The chemically loaded products put artificial emulsifiers (to make a lather) and then a numbing agent , to eliminate the stinging if the lather gets in the eyes.

Look for natural and organic products with any of the following ingredients Aloe vera, chamomile, vitamin E, coconut, almond sunflower

There are many reasons that your hair is thinning - most of the reasons are diet, hormones or stress related. Go to any good chemist like Boots etc and buy Nourkrin extra strength - it is a supplement that needs to be taken daily - you will see a total difference within months. Next, you need to opt for a shorter style - bob length or slightly longer, as it sounds to me as if your hair is quite long. Going shorter will give the appearance of thicker hair.

It seems to me that your hair is feeling the effects of heat styling from using hair straighteners every day. I would suggest using a shampoo and conditioner that is going to help re-hydrate your hair and help it to stay naturally straight and healthy so then you will find you donít need to use the straighteners as much. In the long run this will mean your hair will be in better condition and will even give more natural volume. I suggest trying my Poker Straight Shampoo and Conditioner available in Boots stores. It will really help to tame any fly aways whilst at the same time the P2Fifty Complex within the formulation helps to prevent hair from excessive heat damage. If you have dry ends I was also advise you to use an intensive treatment once or twice a week to ensure you are conditioning your hair to the max and locking in lots of moisture. Hair technology has moved on a lot and now you can get straighteners which have titanium plates rather than ceramic which gives better results faster so you not only save time but cause less damage to your hair too. Maybe have a look online at some brands that offer this and check out My Poker Straight Super Hero Straighteners which offer the latest titanium technology plates. Remember to always protect your hair with protection mist before styling too!
