Is your hair thinning? It turns out that 40% of American women suffer from hair loss or thinning. As we progress past 40 and on into our 50s and beyond, our hair often tends to thin out. This can be super frustrating! I’ve found a great regime for thinning hair and have all the details in today’s post.
For those of you lucky enough to have lustrous, thick locks–good for you! But for those of you like me, who have thin or fine hair, any slowdown in growth becomes super noticeable.
While my hairstylists have always acknowledged that my hair is fine (baby fine, they like to say!), they always added that “you have plenty of it, though.” Over time, however, it seemed the amount was decreasing, making it hard to look my best.
I tried a couple of products with limited results until I found this regime from the ColorProof hair care line.
Bio-Repair Therapy System for Thinning Hair
Now, I have used ColorProof shampoo and conditioners for some time as they make great hair products. They are a local company located in Newport Beach. The products really help maintain your color and they have lines for volume-boosting and moisturizing that work really well. Yes, they are a bit pricier but well worth the money.
When I came across this Bio-Repair Therapy System, highly recommended by the owner of a local beauty supply shop, I gave it a try. I started with just the shampoo as I was still using up my volumizing conditioner.
Within a month, my hair felt stronger and thicker. When I saw the above picture from a recent post, I noticed all the little hairs sticking up. Guess what? That is new growth!! Since it was a foggy morning, they are all curled around my crown. I’ve since had a Keratin treatment to smooth down those hairs!
How Does This Regime Work?
Not surprisingly, the issue with loss of hair begins in the scalp. My scalp felt drier and itchier and sometimes even a little greasy as well. Certainly, coloring the hair and using blow dryers is part of the issue but I’m not ready to give those up and I’ll bet you feel the same!
The BioRepair Therapy System stimulates, energizes, nourishes, and restores the scalp, creating the optimum environment for hair to thrive.
It contains an ingredient described as “AG Stem Cell Complex” that helps to remove dead skin cells, build-up on your scalp, and any other impurities that impede hair growth. It literally strengthens the hair by improving the scalp.
How Do I Use the Regime?
Using the regime is super simple, and just like washing and conditioning your hair with any other products. Additions include the Scalp Exfoliating Brush (pictured above) and the Stem Cell Scalp Serum.
Here are the steps and how each step supports hair growth:
- Shampoo as you normally do. The Alpha Hydroxy Acids remove sebum and dead skin cells, increasing circulation. Gently use the scalp exfoliating brush in thinning areas to further increase circulation. It feels really good!
- Apply the conditioner. The AG Stem Cell Complex helps restore the follicles while biotin and copper peptides work to strengthen the scalp. Proteins and thickening agents add volume and strength while also protecting color.
- Apply a few drops of the leave-in serum that contains all of the above ingredients to help repair your hair around the clock.
Honestly, your hair will feel so much stronger right away!
Just last week, my hairstylist commented on how much thicker my hair felt. Yay! I’m also losing way less hair every day as noticeable in my brush and even running my fingers through my hair. My stylist is planning to recommend the products to other clients, many of whom are using products like Rogaine that you have to put in your hair at night. Yuck! They leave a mess on your pillowcase.
Here is a photo of my hair right now. (In the wind!!) It feels thicker and so much healthier!
Here’s a little info on the outfit. This little T-shirt dress is an inexpensive ($12) cotton dress that is perfect for casual or beachwear. Due to the 100% cotton fabric, you may want to size up to allow for shrinkage. (The size I’m wearing is my usual size small and it’s fine now, but you never know.) I’m styling it with a basic denim jacket and affordable mules with a straw bag. It comes in several colors.
I don’t really know the full science behind it, just that it works for me! I think it might work for you, too! If you want to start small, as I did, start with the shampoo and see what results you get. Then add the other products for even more growth. Like almost everything else these days, you can order the products from Amazon. This page will show you all the available hair growth products in the Bio-Repair System.
