Must have. I wont be without this!
on July 10, 2014
This system is amazing. I have thinning hair due to PCOS and a severe hormonal imbalance, with very high DHEA. I have tried everything. Nioxin only dried out my hair and damaged it, Avalon was worse (it was like an industrial strength degreaser that stripped my hair and damaged it in only a few uses!). Pura d'Or was the same way. I was afraid nothing would work for my hair.
I bought this system out of desperation to find something that could slow down my hair loss. Not only did this system help with that, it also gave my hair incredible texture and a new life! It went from an almost hay-like texture after using Avalon, to a silky texture with weight and body, but not weighed down like I expected. I absolutely adore and recommend this to anyone and I will continue to buy this system, even if it is a bit more than other products, because I wholeheartedly believe in it.
The shampoo emulsifies incredibly well. I only use half a pump. I've used it twice a day (that's best for removing and blocking the DHT and 5-alpha reductase that causes hairloss) and I'm only about a 1/4 way through the bottle! It's incredibly long-lasting for a smallish bottle. I've never used a product of this quality before. The conditioner I recommend getting an extra bottle of. Where I only use 1/2 a pump of the shampoo, I like 2 pumps of the conditioner on my short hair because it seems to soak right into the hair and scalp. The ingredients of both are stellar for blocking DHT, and promoting hair growth. The treatment oil is a really good addition for night use. I highly recommend leaving something on your scalp overnight that can assist in blocking the DHT that causes hair loss. I found the scent of the products to be very nice. It's rather herby and I find it comforting.
If your hair is thinning, check out my other reviews of things that have helped me. In particular, the high frequency generator I bought for $20. It has been a miracle that has made this system work even better. If you only have money for one or the other, get the high frequency generator. It helped my skin tighten, made my bulging veins sink back down, and has reduced hair fall out by 1/10 in only a few uses! It so far surpassed my expectations that I can't believe it's only $20. I hope it works as well for you. It's been a godsend for me!
Also, if you have PCOS or high testosterone, do research on licorice root tea. I have been drinking 6 bags of Stash's Licorice Spice tea for only two months and it reduced my excess testosterone by an extraordinary amount. I went from 155 to 51 in just two months with no drugs. That has helped my hair come back quite a bit. Also, D-chiro Inositol is the natural form of Metformin without side effects. I can't tolerate the drugs they want me to take, so finding out this information has been a huge blessing that I hope helps others.
UPDATED: 10/27/14 I am just under half the bottle at this point. I can't believe this has lasted so long. I still love it and think it's amazing. You really have to shake the shampoo every time you use it because it separates quite a bit.
Updated 7/1/16 My last order was April 9th, 2015. I can't believe it's taken me this long to get through the bottle to order again. I should mention that I no longer do twice a day. I am washing about every other day, so that is making the stuff last longer! Still, that is insanely long for a product to last. I am still in love with this product. I've recently had a downturn in my health. My mono flared up and my TSH went sky high (which means my thyroid is very low). I started losing a bunch of hair, and it got coarser. I'm convinced that this shampoo and conditioner helped to halt my hair loss. My hair is very dry and fluffy without this stuff. I'm so disappointed to see the low star rating this has, based off of people who had bad service with customer care. While I've had product that is slightly inconsistent, as they make it by hand, I've never have it be radically inconsistent, or be noticeably different. I have felt disappointed that this company hasn't shown more interest in their repeat customers, giving them discounts for future purchases, or even thank yous for people who write rave reviews and take the time to update and communicate with Amazon members. It's obvious they need to get their priorities straight and spend a little more time showing appreciation to their customers. This is such a fantastic product. I hate that people have had bad experiences with this company.
