Bad Dry Dull Lifeless Unconditioned Unhealthy Hair
We all have days when our hair just doesn’t seem to do our bidding, don’t we? Even if you think your hair is pretty good in terms of behaving, you probably recognise the truth in this statement.
This makes it all the more important to know the difference between a bad hair day and an actual problem with the thickness or condition of your hair. For example you’d spot the classic signs of dandruff but you may not spot them in their early stages. You may think you’d spot increased hair loss more easily, but even then it may take a while to realise you’re losing more than you would do naturally.

I was surprised to learn it varies more than you’d think. You can shed anything between 40 and 150 hairs per day. So, on the short end of that you could drop around 280 hairs a week, while on the longer side (where I seem to be) you can shed a little over a thousand hairs. Yes, I’m definitely up at that level!
Of course sometimes natural hair loss can end up reaching unnatural levels. Our range of hair loss products gives you the chance to combat these issues in order to make sure your hair looks as full and healthy as possible every single day.
Over the years – and we’re focusing on several centuries ago here – people have tried all kinds of remedies to try and slow or reverse hair loss. We’ve looked into this topic and one of the most bizarre remedies we found was boiled slugs. Apparently one ‘doctor’ who lived some five centuries ago used boiled slugs – among other ingredients – as part of a self-created potion to restore hair loss to anyone who suffered from it. Some of the other ingredients weren’t as repulsive as this one. He also mixed in honey and saffron among other things. Continue reading →
