Have you had those after bath moments when you see your floor sink full of hair clumping together? Eekky, isn't it?!
Falling hair can be worrisome for both women and men. Losing 50 to 120 hairs a day is normal but once you can see your scalp through your hair then that's the time when it gets to be a concern.
Hubby and I have this problem which started to be a concern last year. By just running his hand through his hair we can see several strands on his fingers. After every bath I would see lots of hair on the sink and while combing my hair. I believe stress is the main culprit for hubby and for me, PCOS.
So we've tried several ways to alleviate this problem. From diet by reducing chilli and eating lots of high in omega 3 fatty acids foods. To putting VCO with Rosemary leaves to our scalps and even hair grower treatment like NovuHair.
This is the one endorsed by Fanny Serrano and have testimonials that it did not only reduce falling hair but helped hair regrowth. It has natural ingredients such as ginseng, rosemary, lavender, peppermint, lemongrass and others. The caveat is, it has different types of parabens and polysorbate which were said to cause or aggravate cancer especially breast tumors. These are also linked to affect the sperm negatively and hormonal abnormalities in men.
So, we stopped using it. We then resorted to shampoos.
It has all the natural ingredients of honey and propolis grown in Ilog Maria's own farm. It doesn't give a rich lather but you can feel how clean your hair is after rinsing with it. The aromatherapy essential oils leave a cool minty sensation on your scalp. Taking a bath has never been this delightful with Ilog Maria shampoo. Sadly, it didn't help our problem. I still get a lot of hair fall.
This pearly white shampoo is an all natural product that boasts with zero SLS and SLES that can be toxic to our bodies. It is sweet smelling and gives just a small amount of lather. It is best to follow it with a conditioner otherwise you'll end-up with a stiff and rough hair. While others have all praises for this product this didn't prevent our thinning hair and caused some dandruff here and there. I guess this doesn't suit my scalp.
Now, I am going to try this: Snoe Hair Heroes Damage Recovery Cream Shampoo
I chance upon SNOE kiosk at Festival Mall in Alabang and bought myself Recovery Cream Shampoo (P399.00/bot at 250ml) and Intense Argan Oil (P499/bot at 250ml). Intense Argan is a five-in-one conditioner that can be used a cleansing conditioner, conditioner, deep treatment mask, de-tangler, leave-on treatment and Hero Sulfates. I just have to check if this will totally stop the hair loss and won't cause any dandruff or itching.
With a hefty price compared to a regular shampoo, I hope this is all worth it and would end my search for that effective falling hair treatment.
Have you tried this product? What can you say?
