Leitrim cancer sufferers offered new hair care treatment

Being told you have cancer is one of the hardest things any woman could ever have to hear, and for many of the 2,500 women diagnosed in Ireland every year, one of the toughest parts of their journey is losing their hair.

When hair begins to grow back after chemotherapy it is often delicate and damaged, and exposure to the cocktail of drugs and medicine vital to battle cancer can leave scalps sensitive and prone to react to harsh chemicals.

That’s why the Irish Cancer Society recommends a vegetable or henna based hair colouring once treatment is complete and six months have elapsed.  Surya Brasil Henna Creams are natural, vegan products packed full of amazing ingredients from the rainforest and free from chemical nasties.

Moisturising, protective ingredients infuse hair with an arsenal of plant botanicals from the Amazon and Indian jungles including Brazil nuts, aloe vera, and superfood acai berry extracts, without causing an itch or allergy, while henna can help create healthier scalp conditions to encourage hair regrowth and stronger shinier looking hair.

What’s more, Surya Brasil Henna Creams are free from the chemical nasties that can cause delicate post-cancer skin to react, with no ammonia, peroxide, parabens, artificial fragrances or mineral oils anywhere in our products.

Surya Brasil Henna Creams are available from health stores and selected pharmacies, or online atwww.yourtonic.com priced €13.80 for cream €8.00 for powder.
