My mum's just started using a powder called Toppik. About £20. She loves it. I think you just sprinkle some of it on the hair and then spritz a small amount of hairspray onto it. It washes out and doesn't build up. Comes indifferent colours. Apparently the celebs use it.
I'm thinking of getting some for DP as his is thinning on top and he keeps threatening to have a No. 1
That is the problem with iron tablets kerrym. - I have now taken the option offered by a private gynaecologist of a Mirena coil supplemented with oestrogen only HRT which has virtually stopped my periods and my ferritin levels are now rising.

I could never take tablets for the same reason as you, but these have been bloody brilliant! (if you do decide to up your iron levels). You can get them much cheaper than that online, if you shop around!
