I tried two products to to treat thinning hair, BUT only 1 is my fav...
1.KÉRASTASE - Energizing Scrub: Purifying Scrub for Oily Scalp What it is: A scrub for an oily scalp that is formulated to exfoliate and provide healthy-looking hair. Hair Type: Straight, Wavy, Curly, and Coily Hair Texture: Fine, Medium, and Thick Hair Concerns: - Oiliness - Volumizes - Flaky, Dry Scalp Key Benefits: - Cleanses - Removes Impurities - Adds Volume Formulation: Scrub Highlighted Ingredients: - Sea Salt: Known for eliminating impurities and exfoliating the scalp. - Vitamin B6: Known for removing dead skin cells from scalp. - Salicylic Acid: Involved with protein metabolism and energy support. Maybe you are confused now: is this scalp working for thin hair? Actually, nearly 50% thin hair is caused by the oil imbalance. So balancing the oil to secrete can not only make your skin fresh and cool but also save your thin hair. That's why I recommend this one for the thin hair. This energising scrub replaces a traditional shampoo and deeply cleanses the scalp and hair. Its purifying texture is specifically designed for oily prone scalp and hair, to combat oiliness and dandruff.The detoxifying power of the sea salt profoundly exfoliates the scalp, effectively removing impurities, particles and product build-up, allowing for stronger, healthier and more beautiful hair. The Vitamin B6 and Salicylic acid protect the scalp with their anti-inflammatory benefits. A little of this powerful scrub massaged in circular motions in a warm shower, will promote skin renewal and unclog pores for optimal scalp health. As you add water to your hair, the energising scrub lathers and create an intense whipped cream cloud. Let the massage awaken your senses. Easy to wash away, this scrub leaves the scalp free to breathe, roots highly lifted, hair fully volumised, 72% more volume after application, shinier and with a lightweight feel. I like using it on wet hair only, start gently applying a walnut-size amount on the scalp (on the top, on the temples, on the crown and on the nape). Gently massage the scalp, add water to the scalp from time to time to help the product to create a thick lather. Rinse thoroughly. Always follow with a treatment on lengths and ends. It's ideal to use Scrub Energisant once a week. 2. GROW GORGEOUS - Hair Density Serum Intense I find the best way to learn more about a hair loss product is to look at the ingredients inside. That is what I am going to be putting in my already thinning hair so I want to make sure everything checks out. Caffeine Ever since a study by german scientists should some minor hair growth on hair follicles in a lab, everything went a bit crazy and every hair loss product now seems to contain caffeine. No doubt it you are from the UK and own a TV you will have seen those rogaine ads. I'm not sure how to feel about this ingredient, it was carried out on male follicles and caffeine shampoo Alpecin was recently banned from claiming it could "help reduce hair loss". I have used other Caffeine products like OGX, Lipogaine and Shapiro MD which did give me some results but I personally don't think it was because of the caffeine inside. Hyaluronic Acid Thinning Hair and "acid" might not sound like a great combination at first glance but taking a deeper look it will make more sense. Hyaluronic Acid is a natural "watery gel" substance that is amazing for moisturising your hair and skin. This may sound hard to believe but just 1 gram of Hyaluronic Acid can hold 6 freaking litres of water. Kate Ellis from the grow gorgeous company actually wrote an in depth article on this ingredient. Bio-Active Pea Sprout extract This ingredient caught my a little bit off guard since I haven't tried a product yet that used this ingredient and I'm not familiar with how it works exactly. I did some research though and it's quite interesting. There was a study that showed Pea Sprout "significantly growing the ratio of anagen and telogen hair". This means that in the study it did improve hair growth. It get's even better though because study included a 50% ratio between Women and Men. The study its self was quite complicated and carried out well. The participants had to apply the Bean Sprout product to the back of their scalps twice per day. At the end of the study 85% of the participants said that the noticed regrowth of their hair. Grow Gorgeous also includes Soy Sprout and Wheat Sprout which some people believe can give similar results. My main issue has been thinning hair and it taking a long time to grow in length. I picked up the Grow Gorgeous Hair Growth Serum 60ml from Amazon UK 2 months ago. It took about 1 week to arrive. I decided that I was going to use it every night after I got home from work. At about 9pm after I had finished my evening bath, I opened up the Serum for the first time I straight away noticed the beautiful smell coming from the shampoo. I tilted my head forward and starting massaging the serum into the front of my scalp into my dry hair. This is where I have been having issues with thinning hair. I did this for about 5 minutes and after that I just let it sit in and went to sleep at about 11pm. I simply repeated this process every night until the bottle was empty and I did notice results. At the end of my experiment I noticed that my hair had grown more than usual and it felt thicker than usual. The results weren't that shocking and I don't think many people would notice that much of a change but for me personally it was definitely nice to see. The price was okay as well but I am keen to try as many other products first for this blog so I probably won't use it again for a while. In a word, both this two products are my often use but if i need to choose one of them ,it should be grow gorgeous because it will show the effect so fast.
