Hair Fall. Breakage. Thinning breaking hair is not cute and it’s every woman’s nightmare.
When you notice that your hair is breaking or coming out a little more than normal, don’t wait to change the game. Find you a good quality product that will put a stop to it all. Pronto.
I didn’t notice a lot of breakage but it seemed that my daily shedding was a little more than normal. Of course, I didn’t count every hair that came out to determine if it was the normal 50-100 hairs shed per day. I just knew that I wanted that number closer to 25 hairs per day.
And so I decided to try OGX Niacin3 and Caffeine Anti-Hair Fallout products.
The three OGX Anti-Hair Fall products include:
1) a sulfate free shampoo (12 oz retails approx $5.79-7.99 )
2) a rinse out conditioner (12 oz retail approx $5-7.99)
3) a root stimulator spray (4 oz retail approx $6-8.39)
A power-packed fusion of niacin and caffeine, this collection can help exfoliate and stimulate your scalp while combatting hair loss.
Niacin is a water soluble B vitamin which increases blood flow to the scalp. It also delivers more oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicles causing a stimulation of hair growth.
Caffeine is known to stimulate hair follicles, strengthen the roots of the hair and blocks the effects of DHT, a chemical derivative of testosterone responsible for male pattern balding (not exclusive to males). The results of using caffeine for hair loss is the cessation of excessive hair shedding. Some hair shedding is normal (as I mentioned earlier, 50-100 hairs per day) but caffeine is capable of lengthening the lifespan of a strand of hair so that it also doesn’t shed prematurely. Topical application is most effective which is why it’s included in each of these products.
I used each of the three products in the OGX Niacin3 and Caffeine anti-hair fall out line for a little over a month. I wash my hair weekly and in addition to using these products on my weekly wash day, I massaged the root stimulator spray into my scalp twice a day – morning and night.
On wash day I focused on applying the shampoo only to my scalp and I washed twice. Then, after using a deep conditioner from other lines, I applied the Niacin3 and caffeine conditioner throughout my hair and finger detangled some before rinsing. The root stimulator spray was the final thing I applied to my scalp before beginning the styling process.
To say that my results were adequate is an understatement.
Not only did my shedding decrease after the very first wash, I also noticed my hair looking fuller at the end of a month.
I no longer feel a need to use these products but I still have shampoo and conditioner left (no more root stimulator) which I will use as a preventative to hair fall, once a month or so.
