It has been a mission this past year to use fewer toxic products in my home. Most of this task has been fairly easy and I will share some of these transitions with you in a later blog. One area where I have struggled has been my haircare. I have thick, course, frizzy, curly hair that is hard to control. The products I have used over the past few years work well but I know that they rank pretty bad on the EWG scale. Needless to say, I was super excited for Retro to release their line of haircare products.
All of their topicals are rated 1-2 on the EWG scale and have been developed over years. The most exciting part of the development is that the topicals are combined with FDA-cleared technology resulting in the greatest improvements for problem areas.
The FDA-cleared laser helmet is clinically proven to increase hair density. Can you believe these results from 4 months of usage? (3 times a week for 20 minutes). Luckily, my hair is pretty thick. I do have a little thinning around my part and where I pull my hair back to my signature messy bun. Can you picture me wearing the helmet while I write my blog? That is exactly what I will be doing.
The next incredible product is the Revive Botanical Oil Serum. This uses the purest form of coconut oil and aloe to stimulate hair growth from the outside in. Brace yourself…the coconut oil is not from any coconut. This is a rare One-Eyed Virgin coconut from the Philippines. Don’t worry, it is being responsibly sourced. In a clinical study, after 7 weeks, over 80% of users saw improvement in both texture and density.
Can you imagine combining these two super powers?
Now let’s talk about shampoo and conditioner. Of course, they are a cleaner, greener and healthier approach to haircare free of parabens and sulfates. The two formulas, powered by Redensyl, are available in scented and unscented!!! Redensyl is a proven botanical complex that targets hair follicle stem cells to strengthen and improve hair growth. The RISE combination helps with hair density and strengthens each strand of hair. SHINE (what I use) gives the moisture hair needs to be shiny by using Bamboo Oil Extract while the Redensyl maximizes new hair growth.
These products are a game changer for men and women with thinning hair at a fraction of the cost of alternative, invasive treatments. Best of all, the products are safe as well as being effective.
My family has a history of male pattered baldness and I know that my boys will never have to give a future of a bald head a second thought.
What product are you most excited about?
