Men aren’t the only ones who can suffer from hair loss. I know that as I get older I seem to have less and less hair – not in patches like the top of my hubby’s head (which he insists is just a cowlick…sure, honey, it’s a cowlick. You just keep telling yourself that.) Instead, my hair seems to just get thinner all over. Leonor Greyl sent us four products from their cruelty-free and eco-friendly regimen for hair loss and I tested them for several months with great results.
There are four steps (and five products) to Leonor Greyl’s hair loss treatment regimen: purify, cleanse, treat, and maintain. Following these four steps will not only help you fight against further hair loss, they will also increase the amount of hair you have. And here is some really good news: right now, you can get all five products for $189, whereas separately you would pay $237.
The hair loss treatment regimen minimizes hair loss through plant extracts, oils, and nutrients. The regimen also has the added benefit of leaving hair wonderfully soft and shiny. All the products are safe to use with colored hair and are free of SLS, parabens, and silicone. The products energize your scalp and make hair super strong.
The first step is to PURIFY with the scalp treatment Regenerescence Naturelle ($60). It has essential and botanical oils that stimulate and clean the scalp, which helps hair grow. I put this on prior to showering, massaging it into my dry scalp then wrapping a towel around my head. I leave it on for at least 15 minutes, although sometimes I do leave it on overnight. The dropper makes it easy to apply and the results are terrific. It leaves my scalp feeling fabulous and I am very happy with my thicker hair.
The second step is to CLEANSE, and the Shampooing Au Miel ($32) is the perfect product for the job. I use this all the time and it’s very gentle yet effective. It leaves hair with lots of volume, shine, and bounce. The light scent from the acacia honey and rose extracts is fresh and pleasant.
The third step is to TREAT the hair. There are two products that are included in the Leonor Greyl Hair Loss Treatment Regimen for treatment: Complexe Energisant ($56) and Tonique Vivifiant ($43).
The Complexe Energisant is a leave-in treatment that tackles pretty much every issue that results in hair loss. The effective ingredients include mimosa tenuiflora and collagen, both of which stimulate hair growth. I use one vial a week since my hair loss is ‘moderate’, while those with more serious hair loss would use up to three vials per week. This is applied to a clean scalp after washing, just prior to drying and styling the hair.
Also part of the treatment step is Tonique Vivifiant, a leave-in treatment spray. This complements the other products and helps to fight hair loss, keeping hair strong and healthy. This treatment, which also has mimosa tenuiflora and collagen, is sprayed into towel-dried hair.
Included in the Hair Loss Treatment Regimen is one more product that I did not test, the Volumizing Styling Mousse, which completes the fourth step of MAINTAINING healthy hair. While I didn’t use that product, I can definitely say that the four products I did test were pretty fabulous. If you have issues with thinning hair, I definitely recommend trying out the Leonor Greyl Hair Loss Treatment Regimen. - Lisa
