The combination of age (I’m in my late 30’s), thyroid disease (hyperthyroidism) and a stressful work environment made me very prone to hair loss. I’ve actually been observing this since I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism more than 10 years ago, but it was not until recently that I decided to really do something about it because I feared that as I grow older, the more irreversible the hair loss will be. And I don’t want to go bald!
It was a good thing I was asked to try Novuhair’s 3-in-1 organic hair solution. Sakto ‘cos I’ve been eyeing their products for some time already. I received my package last April.
The package includes the following:
Novuhair Herbal Shampoo. This has been developed especially to prepare the scalp in an optimal way for the application of the Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion and is expected to enhance its effect. Made with virgin coconut oil, peppermint oil, lemongrass oil, rosemary oil, lavender oil and safflower.
Novuhair Herbal Conditioner. This contains standardized herbal extracts which moisturize and condition your hair giving it a shinier, softer and supple look. Novuhair Herbal Conditioner has been formulated specifically to complement the use of Novuhair Scalp Lotion and Herbal Shampoo.
Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion. Also contains standardized herbal extracts with essential oils and co-factor nutrients specially chosen for their hair growing properties. The Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion penetrates the scalp to rejuvenate the hair follicles. It provides optimum nutrition to help combat hair loss, thinning hair and improves blood circulation on the scalp which contributes to the stimulation of hair growth.
The directions in using them are fairly simple:
- Apply the Novuhair herbal shampoo to wet hair and scalp, massage then rinse.
- Follow it up with the Novuhair herbal conditioner, massage then rinse.
- After shampooing and conditioning, towel dry your hair and apply Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion liberally to the entire scalp. Massage for 5 to 10 minutes.
- Rinse off with water or leave it on and style as desired using non-alcohol based hair products.
I had no problems using the shampoo and conditioner. They smelled great and have the same texture as my regular shampoo and conditioner.
It was the topical scalp lotion which I had a hard time getting used to. My nose doesn’t like the smell. As in! Also, the lotion is in liquid form (I thought it will be creamy), which I find hard to work on my long hair. Hindi ko rin makita if the lotion has penetrated my scalp already.
As a result, I used the lotion sparingly (during weekends only). The shampoo and conditioner I used every day because I like their smell, and they lessened the itching of my scalp. I also stopped having dandruff.
I did this routine for over a month, and noticed a stark difference in my hair: it has become thicker and there’s sign of life in it na hehe! It used to be dry and sabog, but now there’s some luster and vibrancy in there. The hair loss is still there, of course, but what I’m more concerned of is how to grow new hair to replace the dead (and fallen) ones.
Encouraged by these positive developments, I decided to be “friends” again with the topical lotion. I started applying it liberally all over my scalp during weekends , but during weekdays, I apply it only at that ‘bright spot’ above my big forehead (my Angelina Jolie forehead, hihi!).
After a month of doing this improved routine, I observed baby hairs starting to grow at the hairline above my forehead. Hindi pa naman marami, but the important thing is, there’s a sign of growth na.
After more than 2 months of using Novuhair products, I can now wear my hair down with confidence!
I will religiously apply the topical lotion now that I’ve seen little hairs growing above my forehead. But I still hope Novuhair will improve this product to make it more “user friendly” and easier to apply. If it can come up with a cream version of this product, the better.
Nevertheless, I am happy and relieved to know that with Novuhair, I can deal with my hair loss – the natural way. No need for surgery or laser treatments, whew!
