Is it just me, or is it really hard to find a good shampoo? One that doesn’t leave your hair looking flat or fly away, but bouncy full of life, and ultimately… clean. I know, that one might sound a bit strange. But with damp weather, wind and mugginess in the air. My hair is greasy by the time I get home even though I washed it in the morning!
At the moment there seems to be a mixture of bad weather, bad shampoo, and the joy that is coeliac disease which all go together to help create a true hair disaster. No exaggeration. You may wonder what an earth coeliac disease has to do with it, and the answers simple. One of my symptoms of coeliac disease was hair loss. I lost big chunks, and was left with a few shiny bald patches. They weren’t huge, but I mean, even the smallest bald patch is big enough, right?
Gluten Free Hair Care
So, I currently have tufts of hair growing more or less everywhere. Which as you can imagine, isn’t great. I either had more than I originally thought, or I’m growing new thicker hair. I’m definitely hoping for that one! A part of coeliac disease is that you can’t have any gluten, not even a ‘trace of’, which can be pretty tricky. You have to check your food, drinks and even makeup and other cosmetics. Which can be pretty hard. And I can’t believe how many shampoos contain gluten, in some form or another.
Then I found out about the new Pantene Pro-V Micellar Water hair care range, and was lucky enough to be sent a bottle of the shampoo, conditioner and foam conditioner to try out. All I can say is at last! A shampoo that leaves my hair feeling thick, bouncy and actually clean! I don’t really use conditioner that much and just lightly coat the very ends of my hair in it. But since I’ve started using the Micellar Water Conditioner, (I favoured the traditional format over the foam version), my ends seem softer and not so split.
It seems that my hair is so much easier to style, and a quick blow dry (literally throwing my hair over my face, and drying), is all that I need to do. How amazing is that?! Perfect for a true lazy girl like me. Especially when I have no time in the mornings. My sister saw what it did to my hair, and gave it a go. Just like me, she fell in love with it after only one wash, and now it’s the only range either of us will use.
Good Hair Days
The weather may still be rubbish, and at times, I do have to wash my hair every day. But, I have noticed a huge difference. It feels thick, luscious and overall, in much better condition than it was before. It may seem like such a little thing, but when you have good hair, everything seems a lot better.
Good hair days, here I come!
