Elon Thinning Hair System with Matrix 5000

Is a Solution for:
Thinning Hair & Shedding
March 17, 2008 Reviewed by Marta 2 Comments
Elon's Thinning Hair System is just out. The three-step program includes shampoo, conditioner and oral supplements. The key to Elon is a combination of ingredients called Matrix 5000.

One of them turns out to be biotin, a vitamin H or B7 that is used for hair loss. It is necessary for cell growth and the production of fatty acids. Usually doubts are cast over whether it can work for hair loss    in topical products since it can't be readily absorbed through the skin. In this case, it is being taken as a supplement. However, there is a catch. Biotin deficiency is extremely rare (according to the US National Library of Medicine), so if your hair is thinning it is not likely to be because you are not producing enough.

The other is L-Cysteine, an amino acid that makes up 5% of the composition of hair. I can't find any evidence that it helps hair loss though.

The shampoo and conditioner are nothing special. There is plenty of silicone to make whatever hair you have feel soft and look shiny.

    <p>First of all, that's wonderful news about your hair. But it is also good to know about Elon. I am beginning to wonder if the info I found on biotin wasn't overly cynical because it has turned up in a couple of things that do seem to work. I'll do some more digging around.</p>

    <p>I was losing a lot of hair and went to my dermatologist for help. She suggested that stress was a major factor in my hair loss and prescribed the ELON Matrix 5000 and the ELON Moisture Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner. (At the time, the Thinning Hair System was not sold as a kit which would have saved me some money.) I was told that the pills would take some time to work but I would notice less hair loss over a 6 month period and then I would begin to notice the hair getting fuller and thicker. The shampoo and conditioner were recommended by the doctor because they were sulfate free and would not harm my hair as would many other products. In the time I have been using it, the difference is dramatic. My hair is back to where it was (that alone makes things less stressful) and it feels great. When I called back my dermatologist to express my gratitude and inform her of the results, the office staff told me that they have been hearing the same thing from everyone. Whatever these folks at ELON are doing, they are doing it right.</p>
