This product makes some very bold claims: Continued use WILL prevent further hair loss & Safe for ALL hair types. The question is, does it actually work?
In this review I have tried to objectively answer many issues brought up in other reviews I’ve read.
First I’d like to point out that I find the two major claims of this product, hence the reason people buy it, to be unfounded and illogical. The claims state “WILL” & “ALL”. The fact is, everyone’s body chemistry is different. No one product, that I know of, can cure, fix, help, whatever every single person in the world. There is no way that this product WILL prevent further hair loss in every person who uses it. Legally speaking, the manufacturer probably should have used the term “MAY” or “In MOST/MANY cases”. The second claim that it is SAFE for ALL hair types cannot be proven. Is the manufacturer actually sayinh that this product has been tested on over 6 billion people in the world, and no one has had an adverse reaction… ridiculous! Here again, how about stating “Safe for MOST” hair types. It is because of these claims that there are such heated and diverse reviews on this product. It claims you will have no adverse reaction and will stop hair loss. If it doesn’t work for you and your hair type/ body chemistry, why wouldn’t you be upset? But, here’s my findings after about 7 weeks. FYI, I’m a white male with short and somewhat oily hair.
Toxins:Another reviewer stated that this product contains the toxin Phenoxyethanol. I looked up Phenoxyethanol on Wiki and sure enough, it’s a mild toxin. This does seen odd, since this is an “Organic” shampoo. Ah, but here’s another finding. I’ve been using a condition from Burt’s Bees that 97.5% natural. I wondered had wondered what the 2.5% was, but never looked into it. Turns out that it’s Phenoxyethanol. It seems that this chemical is in just about every hair and skin care product. It was in the Nioxin shampoo I had been using. The good news is it’s a mild toxin. Yes, it’s been “linked” to (insert whatever disease you want), but in actuality, if you drank three sodas today, you’ve probably done alot more harm than using this shampoo… seriously, soda is poison to your system (look up aspartame).
Reactions:Several reviewers stated increase dandruff and increased hair loss. I have shampooed every other day for a few weeks, then every day for a few weeks, and even twice a day at times. I have had no hair loss or dandruff (which I haven’t before).
Smell:This of course is subjective. I do not find the smell to be obtrusive, but it’s not the best smell in the world (like fresh brewed coffee… which wouold make an odd shampoo fragance actually). Other reviews are all over the place about this… of course if your dandruff increased and your hair started falling out, you may not like the smell as well.
Packaging & Shipping:Several reviewers griped about their bottle being broken in shipping or untimely shipping. Just to be as objective as I could, I actually ordered this product three times from three different vendors. Each time the product arrived timely and without damage. Maybe the other reviews selected “Pony Express” as their method of delivery, but I’ve had no complaints.
Dispenser:Of all things, some people complained about the amount of product that the pump on the bottle produced. Seriously? Here again, this is subjective to your personal preference. If I was a girl with 23″ of hair, the amount produced by one pump may not be enough shampoo for me. But, I’m a guy with short hair. If anything, the amount may be a tab more than I need, but amazingly if I just use half a press I get the amount that’s right for me.
Price:This is the point that made it hard for my “Star Rating”. I considered 3 instead of 4. I’ve read other reviews that said this product was a steal at $18. $18!!! Where can this product be found for $18? On further research, it seems that possibly a year ago, or so, this shampoo was selling for $18. When I purchased it 2 months ago, I bought all three bottles for $25 each. The price did jump to $30 for a week, but when it went back to $25, I purchased my third one. Now, let’s review our basic math from 4th Grade. The jump from $18 to $25 is roughly 25%. From $25 to $30 is about 25%. Then from $30 to $40 is like 30%. So, to be generous, this product jumps in price at least 25% a year (and that’s being kind). I honestly couldn’t believe when I got ready to write this review that it was now selling for $40! Wow, if we stick with this formula, this stuff will cost like $80 in three years! However, I’m sure this is due to “increased production cost” and a “new and improved formula”. Now, many things in life are about perspective. If I go…
