    Wow, that’s indeed shocking news. Thankfully I don’t wash my hair with shampoo much and my partner buys really good shampoo that has been locally made. I was shocked at the price tag but now I have checked the ingredients and there is none of that nasty stuff that you describe here in there. Thank you for putting the word out. I do use gel in my hair and I notice my scalp getting itchy from that, so I turned to coconut oil. The only problem is no my hair looks greasy. I don’t mind the look but my partner isn’t the biggest fan of it. It smells nice but it just looks wet. Any ideas on that side? Thanks

    1. coconut oil tend to seep

      into every tiny hole in your hair shaft and disguise the real problem to
      act as a quick-fix, this won’t help your hair in the long-run and is
      one of the main reasons I advise against using oils in your hair.

      If your hair has been damaged from over-processing from
      colour, or is weak and fragile, you need to get amino acids into the
      hair shaft, so definitely don’t want to coat your hair in oil.
