Help for My Postnatal Hair Loss
About four months after I gave birth to Lauren (my firstborn), my hair started falling out by handfuls on a daily basis. At first, I thought it was my salt intake. Someone once told me too much sodium causes hairs to fall, I’m not sure how legit that is but that clearly wasn’t it in my case. Soon, I found out it was postnatal hair loss, and it affects like erm….. every mother. While it is normal to shed hairs after giving birth, unfortunately not all of us regain our former crowning glory.
I’m the living testament. It was a little better the 2nd time around but my hairline has receded and I have a bald spot at the start of my hair parting. That is the reason why I get a fringe after every pregnancy. It is to cover the bald spots and the annoying short bits that are growing back through.
Can you see how high my hairline was?
I was making peace with my thinning hair until sometime last year when I attended a PHYTO event and learnt that we don’t have to live with thinning hair. There are ways to counter hair loss. THERE IS HOPE!
PHYTO is a trusted brand in hair care and has been working to fine-tune innovative products with scientifically proven results for over 40 years. Using the most high-performance active botanical ingredients, PHYTO products have been clinically proven to deliver results, successfully treating every scalp and hair conditions such as hair loss, dandruff, sensitive and oily scalps, damaged, dry, curly and frizzy hair.
Beyond excited that I could prevent significant hair loss after my third pregnancy, I tried the Phytocyane Revitalizing Thinning Hair Treatment and Phytocyane Revitalizing Shampoo.
Female hair loss is mostly identified with increased thinning all over the scalp, with noticeable reduction of hair density along frontal hairline and crown of the scalp. Mine is just like that, causing my hair to look flatter than ever. Phytocyane Revitalizing Thinning Hair Treatment and Shampoo are an exclusive anti-hair loss fortifying treatment created for women to treat just that.
Phytocyane Revitalizing Shampoo
Starting with washing hair with the shampoo, it prepares the scalp to receive the full benefit of Phytocyane Revitalizing Serum. Containing revitalizing botanicals and fortifying vitamins, the shampoo improves the density and shine of fine, thinning hair. Hair becomes fuller, stronger and more lustrous with each use.
Formulated for thinning hair, the shampoo does an amazing job at gently cleansing and leaving me hair properly bouncy and lovely. It is transparent and light in texture and it works up to a satisfying lather. It leaves a nice, mild herby smell on my hair, most likely due to the natural botanical ingredients. There’s no weighing down of the hair or that funny, cloying residue that you can sometimes get if you use the wrong product. Each of my hair stand feels thoroughly cleaned and light even after I apply hair conditioner.
Phytocyane Revitalizing Thinning Hair Treatment
Besides post pregnancy, women tend to lose hair due to stress, fatigue, poor diet and hormonal imbalance. Phytocyane Revitalizing Thinning Hair Treatment helps in 3 ways: To prevent hair loss, stimulate healthy hair growth and enhance the beauty of hair with hydration, volume and natural shine.
It comes in a box of 12 bottles of hair serum to be applied onto the scalp after hair wash with the Phytocyane Revitalizing Shampoo.
Phytocyane serum’s advanced formula supports scalp micro-circulation for an optimum healthy hair growth. Next, the powerful combination of sulphured amino acids, B vitamins, and silk proteins to encourage keratin production at the follicle level and create thickness on every strand, maximise fullness and enhance shine. When used year-round, this serum helps to keep grey hairs at bay too!
It also contains a whole lot of growth stimulating and strengthening botanical active ingredients like Gingko Biloba, Viburnum Bark, Vitamin B5, Soy Proteins, Tysosine Derivative and Grapeseed Procyanidols amongst others. I have trouble pronouncing some of the ingredients too but just remember that the last ingredient alone has antioxidant 20 times more than Vitamin E to boost microcirculation and fight free radicals to age proof the hair bulb. Young hair bulb = more and healthy hair growth.
To use, just break glass ampoule carefully with a towel. The tip snaps easily into two. Next, attach the applicator nozzle to the tip and it’s ready to use!
After shampoo and towel drying my hair, I apply the hair serum directly onto my scalp, section by section. The serum is very light in texture and it spread easily onto my scalp. Do use liberally. Very often, I have leftover after application, I keep the remaining to use on the next day on dry hair and it works just fine to revive my hair! Massage your head gently so the serum would penetrate into the scalp. No rinsing is required.
The immediate improvement I’ve seen is lesser hair fall during and after every hair wash. I used to fear washing my hair. Because after each wash, I would find lots of hair clogging my shower drain. It hasn’t been like that since I started using Phytocyane Revitalizing Shampoo and Treatment. The lesser hair on the floor also means less sweeping is needed, so yay!
Also, I used to have oily scalp which needs washing at the least, every other day. With Phytocyane, I could go 3 to 4 days between washes and my hair would still be light and voluminous. It’s similar to after undergoing a scalp treatment at a salon, only I get to have the same results at home, day after day. It is recommended to use the treatment along with the shampoo 3 times a week, and the entire box would last for a month.
Another weird or rather unexpected result after using Phytocyane is that my bleached and coloured pink hairs are rejuvenated. After I chemical processed that section of hair last month, it has been dryer and often tangled. Two weeks into Phytocyane treatment, it is now almost as healthy as the rest of my hair. My whole head of hair feels soft, looks thicker and I couldn’t be happier.
Prices for these hair saving wonders? The shampoo is a very decent $41.90 and the hair serums for one month is $149.90, a fraction of how much one would pay for hair regrowth treatment at a salon. The range is available at Beauty By Nature, Robinsons, Watsons, Guardian, Sasa, Metro and Unity.
