Fine or thinning hair? VoluMedic Hair Thickening System

VoluMedicFor those of us with fine and/or thinning hair, it can be quite a challenge to find a solution that is botanically based and not full of chemicals. Recently I have been testing VoluMedic, an all-natural system for fine/thinning hair that works for both men and women.

VoluMedic

The reason we experience hair loss is because our hair growth cycle is out of balance. That imbalance results in less hair during the anagen or growth stage, and a bigger number of telegen or degenerating hairs. The VoluMedic System not only slows this process down, it can even reverse it – again, for both men and women!  Some highlights:

  • Cleanses and stimulates the flow of nutrients to the scalp
  • Removes DHT build-up
  • Increases percentage of hair follicles in the anagen (growth) phase of the hair cycle
  • Thickens and adds body to thin, fine, limp hair
  • Eliminates the use of aggressive, sulfate cleansers, protecting the scalp and hair color
  • It’s a simple, flexible system
  • Uses no paraben preservatives
  • Contains no dyes or synthetic fragrances
  • Is formulated gluten-free

The most innovative active ingredient in VoluMedic products is Pisum Sativum, a sustainable phytonutrient. Swiss studies showed significantly increased Anagen and decreased Telogen follicles on a mixed panel of men & women who used our system. 85% of users showed a 78% average increase in the Anagen / Telogen follicle growth ratio after 90 days use.

Whether you suffer from thinning hair or hair loss due to heredity, medical conditions, or simply from aging, VoluMedic can work for you – and it’s an easy, 3-step system.

VoluMedic Shampoo

The first step is to shampoo with the VoluMedic Shampoo. This shampoo smells minty and fresh, and leaves hair feeling clean but not stripped since it doesn’t contain any sulfates. It does, however, get rid of sebum and build up, which clogs hair follicles.

  • Cleans and builds body without sulfate stripping of vital nutrients or hair color
  • Helps eliminates sebum and styling build-up at the follicle
  • Invigorates the scalp
  • Compatible with keratin straightening systems.

As a result, it gives hair a lot more oomph and volume.

VoluMedic Conditioner

The second step is to condition with the VoluMedic Thickening Conditioner. This also has a fresh, minty scent.  It strengthens hair and adds even more body.

  • Thickens each hair shaft for added body
  • Smooths and protects the surface of the hair
  • Adds life to fine or thinning hair
  • Stimulates the scalp

After rinsing and towel drying hair, there’s just one more step toward a thicker, fuller ‘do.

VoluMedic Scalp Stimulator

While the shampoo and conditioner keep hair healthy and prep the scalp, the Scalp Stimulator does the bulk of the work. For some reason I was expecting this to be a foam, but it’s actually a liquid spray that is applied directly onto your scalp. Just massage in with your fingers, then enjoy the tingling sensation for about a minute before styling. That sensation means it’s working, dissolving excess sebum and promoting a healthy scalp. VoluMedic says this sensation can last for up to 3o minutes, but it only lasts for a few minutes on me and isn’t unpleasant at all.

The Scalp Stimulator gives some immediate gratification, making hair full and thick right away.

  • Helps increase the flow of nutrients for healthy hair
  • Promotes the Anagen, productive phase of the hair cycle
  • Helps clear clogged hair follicles
  • Safe and effective, stimulating formula
  • Hair color safe
  • Contains no paraben preservatives, artificial dyes or fragrances

Basically, the VoluMedic Scalp Stimulator makes your hair thick and full through creating an awesome anagen follicle stage and getting rid of excess sebum that inhibits hair growth. Like the Shampoo and Conditioner, the VoluMedic Scalp Stimulator has no sulfates, parabens, artificial fragrance or dyes. All VoluMedic formulas are also safe for color-treated hair.

If you – or your significant other – has fine or thinning hair, give VoluMedic a try! You can find this line at Sally Beauty stores and through their website.  The 30 day Starter Kit is only $23, so why not give it a shot?  – Lisa

Leonor Greyl’s Four Step Hair Loss Treatment Regimen

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.

Leonor Greyl Regenerescence Naturelle

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.

Leonor Greyl Tonique Vivifiant

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
