I truly enjoyed the opportunity to try the product Osmotics FNS Encore Follicle Nutrient Serum ($58). This is a treatment you put on after shampooing, rubbing it into the scalp and leaving it in. Its purpose is to promote hair growth in women with thinning hair. As I have reached my 50s, I have noticed that my hair seems to be thinning. I was more than excited to try this out in the hopes it would work wonders.
I have normal skin and have no reactions to most cosmetics. I had no adverse reactions to this product either. After reading the ingredients and doing some research, I did expect some increase in either the thickness of my hair (hair per square inch) or the rate of growth.
When I read the directions, I thought I would have to do this at night to prevent residue from leaving my hair sticky. This was not the case! You really can’t tell it is in your hair. You rub it into your scalp, which I did in the shower, and just dry your hair as you normally would. I did find it a bit difficult to make sure it had direct contact with the scalp when applying it, but I did the best I could.
I have been using this serum for almost two months and would like to say that there is ample product to work with. I used it almost every day, and there is still product in the container. It comes in a squirt bottle type container that is easy to use. I just applied a couple of squirts onto my finger tips and massaged it in.
Bottom line is I feel like it is working, but because my hair is also beginning to turn gray, it is hard to tell. I have new hair coming out along the hairline. I notice it because it is gray and wiry! Not the fault of the product, but I presume the new hair is the result. If I were not turning gray, it might be easier to gauge this growth.
As a final note, if the cost is not an issue, I would give this a try. I can say that I felt it worked for me. Thank you Truth in Aging for giving me the opportunity to both try the product and help others with thinning hair find something that might actually work.
