    On a recent show the suggestion was made to look for shampoo containing an ingredient that started with a K. I had never hear of it and lost the name, can anyone help?

    I used witch hazel and it worked very quickly. I rubbed it into my scalp after washing and left it in to dry. I did this 3 times in a week, I also cleaned my hair brush with witch hazel and changed the pillow cases each time. I haven’t had a problem since!
