The 8 page guide discusses the best shampoo and conditioners for normal use and those that are especially useful in fighting dandruff.
Hair loss could be a side effect of a medication that a person is taking. There is a list of drugs that may cause hair loss. Although some of them are essential treatments for life-threatening diseases such as cancer, many others have alternatives that might be less likely to cause this distressing problem. The guide can help you prepare to discuss this ÒminorÓ side effect with the prescriber.
There is also a discussion of nail fungus, and a number of medications and home remedies that can be helpful against this common and persistent problem.
Very informative! I’ll be trying some of the recommendations!
Helpful summary of both prescription and home remedies for nail fungus.
A lot of information to try out!
Very concise and informative. Thank you very much.
The Guide had a lot of great information in it, including a review of the effectiveness of various brands of hair shampoos. That was very helpful. The most surprising information to me is that even a good shampoo loses effectiveness if it is used for a long period of time. The Guide advised alternating between 2 or more quality shampoos to prevent this.
It printed with most of the letters blocked out by squares around each letter so I was unable to read the article.
I did read it on line which was very clear but would like to have had it in print for reference.
Thank you People’s Pharmacy for all the wonderful information you get to each of us weekly.
I downloaded Hair & nails article. It’s full of information, I love it. Thanks, Lynn
There is a Treasure Trove of Great Information here. I wanted to see about all the AMAZING uses for MoM, but found so many wonderful things to try for my splitting nails that I have had for years after trying B vitamins, collagen, hardeners, etc. I can’t wait to get started. I also am passing along the homemade dandruff recipe to a friend who buys the expensive brand and maybe it will help them as well!
Many Thanks For All That You Both Do!
Great info, thanks. My experience: the prescription shampoo ketoconazole will affect the texture of hair, make it brittle, gummy, and cause hair to break easily. It’s a great med for the scalp condition itself, but damages the hair shaft. Shouldn’t be used very often; should primarily contact the scalp and not the hair itself.
Thank you for this information sheet.
Very helpful! Provided many non-prescription and safe alternatives!
Thanks for the OTC measures for managing weak and splitting nails.
This was informative and helpful.
Informative and well-done article.
Interesting information and appreciate the efforts it took to put this information together.
Very informative. New uses on both hair & nails that I was glad to get!
