My daughter’s hair is looking dull and lifeless. Does anyone know of a health tonic I can buy? I bought one from a pharmacy years ago that was fantastic but I can’t remember the name. Those hair and nails tablets don’t seem to work either. No shampoos do the trick either and her diet is very well maintained.

There’s also a leave-in conditioner available from some hairdressers and specialist shops made by PPS called “The Ends”. It’s in a blue tube, and it’s absolutely brilliant.

  • there are some good comments here



  • Speak to a hairdresser? They will have handy hints

  • My daughter had problems with her hair and the hairdresser gave it a good wash and trim. She also recommended a shampoo and conditioner which was specific to her hair type and problems and also some styling products.
