|In an ideal world, this is what my hair would look like, full and healthy as opposed to lank and flat.|
This is why I'm hoping that some of the more hair savvy amongst you might be able to offer me some advice.
I have long, very fine, coloured dark brown hair. I don't blow dry it or use any electrical appliances on it so theoretically it shouldn't be in too bad condition. However, I haven't seen the inside of a hairdressers in over a year (for health reasons, honest!).
I would love to add more body to my hair but appreciate this can probably only be done with heat and time. My main concern is that in the last two months, it has got very lank and greasy. It can get like this if I use a heavy conditioner but now I'm skipping the conditioner completely and it still feels like product is left in the hair. Added to this, I am now getting painful and unsightly spots around my temples on my neck and back, where my hair falls, aren't I painting a pretty picture!

had hair issues. Unfortunately mine never
looked this good!
I've done some brief research on some other beauty blogs and read a bit about SLS and I think my current problems seem to fit with using products containing SLS. I don't really know a lot about it but I'd like to try a range that is possibly SLS free. My main priority is to be able to wash my hair and for it to not be lank and feel like it still has product in it. Shine, volume etc would be just an added bonus.
So I hope this is where you come in. If anyone has had similar hair horror stories or knows about SLS, their effects and good products without them, or really any hair product you think could be a solution for me, I would love to know. I really want to make more of an effort with my hair and in it's current state it is both ugly and uncomfortable. Something has to change. Any suggestions will be gratefully received!
