My Story Part 5

Posted by Gary Schulz on

Then there is shampoo. The majority of shampoos have sulphates in them. About 15 years ago my hair took a turn for the worse. I used to have poker straight hair.

I had spent a lot of time explaining to my clients how to work with their curly locks and now I had to learn how to work with my own... also my scalp was constantly itchy and dry.

My story (part 3) A couple years ago I started getting large cysts in my armpits that would show up overnight. Some were large 1 1/2-2”. Drs prescribed antibiotics when they would show up. But during those “flare ups” I was unable to work as it was painful to lift my arms. Then I started to take a closer look at what was happening around me.
