Recommended for thinning hair that's dull and lacking body

I received my sample tube of Osmotics FNS Revitalizing Shampoo ($21), an anti-aging formula for fine or thinning hair, from Truth In Aging in January; the perfect time to see if it might help me hang onto more of my hair. I tend to shed heavily in the spring, and since I’m not a border collie I hope the annual shedding won’t be as extensive as the year before. Now that I’m in my 50s, my fine, shoulder-length, color-treated hair is not nearly as thick as it once was.

The shampoo is a thick, gel-like consistency with a light, unisexrosemary fragrance (rosemary is said to be good for the hair and scalp). It lathered well and rinsed easily. I did not receive conditioner, so I skipped that step and was pleasantly surprised by how easy my hair was to comb.

A few weeks into the test, I forgot to pack my Osmotics FNS when I left town, so I purchased another rosemary-scented shampoo at a health food store, just to see if I could tell the difference. Wow, the new brand was much harsher, despite the SLS-free labeling, and combing my hair was not fun at all.

After switching back to Osmotics, my hair is clean and shiny, combs easily, and does not require a conditioner. It has good body and styles easily. By the end of April, I hadn’t started shedding heavily, so that is wonderful. I don’t usually buy a $24 shampoo, but I will be tempted to purchase this one because I’m only about half finished with the 6.8-ounce bottle after using the Osmotics shampoo for over two months.
