    • My hair has never been as good as when I lived on the farm and had rain water to wash it in….it’s awful now days :/

    • anything that has chemicals in it will affect your hair, and lets face it, nearly everything you either put in your body or on your body has a chemical in it

  2. I stopped colouring my hair three years ago. At first, I wasn’t sure I liked the salt-n-pepper look. It took a while to get used to it…now, I love it…so liberating and low maintenance! Try it and surprise yourself.

    • Well done Chari. My hair dressers always try to encourage me to colour but too much work to keep up.

    • Gloria, it was my hairdresser who suggested that I go “au naturel”. 😄

    • Me too Chari…about 10 years ago. I did it mainly because colour went a ghastly metallic yellow after a week but, like you, I am so happy with the low maintenance and also the extra $100 in my pocket every 6 weeks! 🌸

    • No way Chari Prats. Have been colouring my hair for 60 years.and get many a compliment on the colour and style. My mother was 93 when she died and always loved having her hair coloured. To each his own i say but sorry, hate grey hair 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • I’m 63 wash and condition every day and colour every couple of months and my hair is still thick, always get complimented on my hair

    • I got rid of the colour this year and am finally fully grey and white. Fantastic…….love it…………..I get so many compliments on how great it looks. I keep it styled with a good cut every 4 weeks. Happy Happy Happy.

  3. I put coconut oil through n leave in for a while before I shampoo my hair leaves it
    Lovely n soft

  4. Use Argon oil before washing and leave in for 30 mins. You can also buy conditioner with Argon oil.

    • I use a tiny bit of Argan oil and rub firmly between my hands to warm it and then gently through my hair after shampooing. I have thyroid trouble, and it makes my dry locks look fabulous. I wash my hair second daily, and use a good quality conditioner. My hairdresser was really impressed last visit

  5. My hair has always been very thick and continues to be at almost 70. I sometimes wish it was thinner lol.

    • Mine too, it takes forever to dry naturally. I have to do some towel drying or I would be waiting for a long time.

  6. It’s usually too hot not to wash your hair every day through a Perth summer, but if I try to make it every other day if I can. I brush my hair after shampooing and just wrap a towel around my head, no rubbing hair, then as it dries I finger comb it a little to get a little height and direction. I keep the hairdryer just for days when I’m going out somewhere.
