Hair is so important
It’s our Crowning Glory, but when cancer comes, hair problems can be devasating. It doesn’t matter which type of cancer we have, or what we are treated with, today’s cancer drugs are no friends to hair.
Trying to restore shine to my once glossy hair, I was left feeling I shouldn’t be so vain when I asked Oncologists for help. I tested product after product, and eventually realised that I would have to invest in some seriously-expensive shampoo if my hair was going to recover.
The French take skin and hair problems seriously, the demonstrator was clued up, and she gave me a run-down of why Lazartigue products could help my hair.
A natural brand made in France
Lazartigue says they “place nature at the heart of our formulas”.Their goal is to reach 95% natural compounds in their products by 2020; if preservatives are needed they use Ecocert approved system of preservatives.
Initially the products may seem expensive, but they contain much less water – to improve active ingredient concentration and to maximize their effectiveness. A small amount of shampoo is all that is required for optimum results, so it lasts and lasts.
J. F. Lazartigue Lazartigue say using their shampoo, the scalp is naturally soothed. I’ve found that I don’t have to use Synalar gel so often.
Lazartigue Soy milk strengthening shampoo is Vegan, and as many of us end up with brittle, wispy hair, this really helped me. It lasts and lasts – I’ve only got halfway through the tube after 2 months use : £19.50
Matching Soy milk strengthening conditioner. Again, it’s Vegan and long lasting, and I only need to use a tiny amount. £28 – and there is still more than half left.
When I purchased the products, I was given their Intensive Scalp Revitalizer Serum to try out. I was told that this helped when you lose hair, so it might help when undergoing chemo. As an aded bonus for me, my scalp is much less itchy, and I now only use prescribed Synalar gel occasionally. I was getting fed up with constanty scratching my scalp, but that seldom happens now. The serum comes in ampoules, and you rub it into your scalp over dry hair – two or three times a week.
Moral – Frenchwomen look after their skin and hair, so we can learn from them!
