I was delighted to have the opportunity to try out the Hair Vitality Complex ($49 in the shop). I had read that copper peptide based products have the capacity not only to promote hair growth but also to strengthen and, thus, broaden the follicle and improve on the results of hair growth achieved with minoxidil and other hair growth products. In fact, many hair growth specialists prefer the use of copper peptides because there are fewer attendant risks.
Now, in my early fifties, I have a thinning region on the hair line above my temples. It has concerned me for a while. Fine, fluffy hair growth was partially restored when I used 5% minoxodil. However, I gather that Marta had benefited from the use of copper peptide based products in the same area and seen considerable new growth.
She created Hair Vitality Complex with my sort of fine, thinning hair problems in mind. Marta wrote in her review, "It is a hair serum that uses copper peptides as the active ingredient to help healthy hair growth and reduce shedding. I created it especially for women with thinning hair (although men are welcome to use it too)." Hair Vitality Complex is sulfate free and the preservative is radish root ferment, which Marta says is a safe alternative to parabens.
So, I wanted to see whether the Hair Vitality Complex would strengthen and increase the effects of the minoxidil. So far, I have seen little change but have found the solution very pleasant and easy to apply. You apply it to a wet scalp and it absorbs very easily. As Marta said in her review, it takes 6-8 weeks to see less shedding and hair growth I'm on the look-out for more changes over the next few weeks.
