Member Name: benlepensive
Advantages: does actually help thinning hair
Disadvantages: feels and smells a bit grotty
Here is a product which brings back unfond memories for me. This takes me back about four years when I was working awful shift pattens and constantly on the go. So much so that my health and ultimately my hair started to suffer. The top of my head had always been full and thick but I was beginning to notice the hair fibres becomign weaker and less dense. I was not prepeared to accept it might be baldness (it wasn't luckily) so I decided that some sort of action needed to be taken.
I went for the Rogaine treatement and got a very small pack for about fifty pounds. This seemed an awful lot of money to spend at the time, though what price do you put on you hair and your health? When I got my treatment pack I had a little bottle off spray and a couple of adaptors that allowed to either spray the mixture onto the hair in a fine spray, like a household plant spray and a longer tube-like spray which came out with more precision.
The mixture contains an ingredient called Minoxidil, which has been clinically proven to regrow hair. It does this by actively stimulating the hair deep down and encouraging new hair to push through and improve the strength and density of the new hair growth. I was dubious of the claims but I worked my way through the bottle, which lasted me a couple of months or so. I used to apply it every day or two, because success is based upon repetition.
The stuff smells a bit weird and chemical like and I did not like sniffing it. It also left the scalp feeling yucky and clogged at the roots, so styling was out of the question! Luckily, at this stage, my hair was shorter and easy to work with. The mixture sort of clings to the hair and refuses to budge, so I would do mine at night when people couldn't see it! It is not visible as such but you know it's in the hair.
So did I see any results? Well, I am pleased to say that I do believe this combined with a better diet helped the hair to recover strength. I did not see a mass of new hair shoot through instantly, but over a period of weeks I did start to feel that the crown area was becoming thicker and felt less fragile and this to me was important.
You can order this product online and there are a variety of sizes available so prices will vary. Yes it costs a lot, but it does help and if you catch it early enough you can reverse the effects of thinning hair.
Summary: helps prevent and turn around thinning hair
