An effective hair serum that stimulates growth and promotes strong strands


Encourages hair growth, promotes lustrous, strong hair



by Elisabeth B.

Having battled dry hair since the age of ten thanks to genes which include thick coarse hair and a propensity towards hypothyroidism, I have spent the last two decades trying out almost every serum, leave-in-conditioner, masque, oil, "hair milk" and other names for overpriced silicones on the market. Adding to that my fondness for maintaining my once natural blonde hair (with my hair dresser's assurance that with green eyes I can "totally pull it off") makes for very unhappy hair.

I was very excited to try Dr. Dennis Gross Anti-Aging Scalp Serum ($54). While I have used many products for my hair, I have not used any specifically for the scalp. The ingredients include some excellent antioxidants including retinol and copper peptides, both which encourage collagen formation. However, the most promising ingredient is the Procyanidin-B2. This ingredient which is extracted from apples, was cited as improving hair growth in a study which is much more objective than claims made by company-financed studies. Procyanidin-B2 when coupled with adenosine has other studies backing it's success. 

I used the product as directed and it felt a little strange as it seemed to wick water away (you apply it to a clean scalp which is important as your skin absorbs lotions, serums etc. best in the first two minutes after the shower). Even though I  could not tell if my already thick hair was any thicker, it did seem stronger and more lustrous at the growth area. So, I thought my fiancé (who has more thinning hair than me) might like to try it. While he did not have the chance to apply it the full amount of time, after about a week he did notice "sprouts"!  I was quietly ecstatic and told him I needed to keep using it for my review. 

I definitely recommend this non-animal tested, mostly natural alternative to anyone looking to thicken their hair. The bottle is not that big (2 oz.) but given that it is just for the scalp, it could last a good amount of time which makes the price tag quite palatable.
