    Have you been checked for hormonal imbalance, celiac, leaky gut, or candida overgrowth? Look for a Functional Medicine MD or Holistic MD for futher assistance. What type of vitamins are you taking?

    @Choclatcotton,
    Adding a tablespoon of Karo Syrup (or any other brand of corn syrup) to your shampoo chelates/removes the hard elements from your hair as well. Combined with your filter, it may leave your hair even more beautifully, soft.

    Great idea @Chicoro - thank you. How much shampoo do you mix it with?

    I do a 1:1 mix. So, if I pour out a 1/2 palm full of shampoo, I mix in 1/2 palm full of karo syrup.

    I use light. That's the only one I could get here. Unless the hair is very light in color, I don't think it matters. But for the record, I've only used the light.
