Follicleanse is another in the long line of all-natural products that claims to be able to promote the growth of new hair and stop the hair you have from falling out using “non-harsh” ingredients. According to the company, Follicleanse is unlike most shampoos in that it is only made up of about 50 percent water as opposed to about 97 percent water in the typical shampoo. It is for this reason that the company says Follicleanse is able to use its formula of super-enriched ingredients to help you fight against hair loss.
How it works
Follicleanse Shampoo is supposedly an organic based shampoo that is designed to cleanse the scalp and reproduce parts of the hair. The active ingredient is Zinc PCA, which is anti-bacterial and anti-seborrheic meaning that your scalp won’t be as oily and it will help to eliminate bacteria build up on the root that causes scalp itch. The company says that the ingredients in the product can not only clean the scalp but also help maintain a healthy blood flow through the scalp as well. Some of the benefits that Follicleanse promises are:
* Deep cleans dirt, oil and product build-up
* Stimulates capillary circulation
* Zinc PCA, Fenugreek, Sage, Thyme combine for cleaning
* Eliminates dandruff, oily scalp, and flaking
* Reduces oil production from sebaceous glands
* Infuses vitamins and botanicals to heal and revitalize
* Increase blood flow to the scalp
This is all wonderful news, though it will not effect how your hair is or isn’t going to fall out. The benefits listed make it look more like a dandruff shampoo and less like a product that will help with hair loss.
The company’s website is just a bit confusing when it comes to the “all-natural” ingredients. While Follicleanse Shampoo is supposed to be organic based, a closer look into the list of ingredients brings to light some not so organic things. Along with a long list of vitamins and nutrients, you will also find several acidic ingredients including sulfur. Most perplexing though is the statement by the company that says, “Follicleanse does not use sodium laurel sulfate. It uses sodium laurel sulfate and………” This gives the appearance of a company that really isn’t sure what the heck their own product is.
In comparing the price of Follicleanse Shampoo with other hair loss products it is very reasonable. But when you compare it to the average shampoo it is outrageous. The fact is that the product doesn’t contain much more than the average vitamin enriched shampoos that you can find at any store. The biggest difference is that Follicleanse claims to be able to aid you in your fight against loosing your hair. But the claims are baseless. Yes a good clean scalp and improved blood flow are important to a vital body, but they won’t help you keep your hair. Many cleanly people are bald and many “cleanly challenged” people have a full head of hair. Hygiene for the most part, does not matter. This can be added to the fact that the company doesn’t even seem to know the meaning of the word organic and is not quite sure exactly if they use certain ingredients or not. As far as this product goes, a good vitamin enriched brand of shampoo at your local supermarket will be about the same for a lot less money.
