I had been having pretty bad hair days lately. It started few months back with massive heartbreaking hairfall. It was so bad that my husband got scared thinking I was suffering from something serious and fixed a doctor’s appointment. And my long hair made it look even more scary. I, on the other hand was distraught, afraid of combing my hair more than once. Imagine, how homeless I must have looked during those days. Thankfully, the blood tests came out normal. The doctor only said that it could be a cycle that would be over after few weeks. Took about two months for the hairfall to stop. By that time I had changed most of my hair products and lost a good volume too.
Have you noticed how harsh the shampoos have become these days? Even the brands that I had been using for a major part of my life have started causing all sorts of problems. Take for example Dove. I had been a regular user of Dove products. But last year, I started suffering from regular forehead acne after every hair wash. In an attempt to find the reason, this resulted in me limiting my dairy intake, changing face wash and soaps, even pillows. But the darn acne kept coming back. And then I changed my shampoo. Tada … forehead acne stopped cropping up.
Frankly, hair care is becoming tough every day, specially for long hair. Sunsilk, Garnier, Tresemme, Pantene – all are crossed out in my list. They all work great for the first few months, but after that their effect starts wearing off and hair starts becoming rough and dry. I wonder if anyone else faced similar situation?
These days I wash my hair with L’Oreal shampoo, and that, actually is one of the few affordable options left for me. The aisle in the supermarket looks so promising, it makes you envisage a dream of having gorgeous stress-free mane. I, myself, sometimes get dazzled by their glorious descriptions and hi-tech terminologies. But, at the end of the day, I come back home, warm some coconut oil and apply a good potion to the roots. It worked for me when I was young, and I really hope that it keeps working in future.
