Spoiler alert – YES!

When the opportunity to review L’Oreal’s new product line Fibralogy arose I was interested yet skeptical.

First, the rundown on Fibralogy.

What it is: Fibralogy is a line that includes shampoo, conditioner, and a booster.

What it claims to do: Make your hair thicker! But tons of hair products claim to do that, so how is this any different?

How it does it: Fibralogy uses filloxane, which, according to L’Oreal, is a molecule that sticks to the hair and provides “substance from within” {source}.

To be honest, that doesn’t mean a whole heck of a lot to me. So I asked my hairdresser friend how it could work, and she said it provides a coating over the hair that makes connections between each hair strand so they never actually touch one another (my words, not hers. She explained it a lot better 😉 ).

The result is hair that appears thicker because the hair strands don’t actually sit on top of one another – it’s like magnets that aren’t attracted to one another!

Now let me start off by saying I have tried every hair-thickening product under the sun. Something that not a lot of people know about me is that I have alopecia, which means my hair thins and falls out in certain places.

One variety of alopecia causes the hair to fall out in circular patches around the scalp, while the other variety causes a receding hairline and is also referred to as male-pattern baldness. Lucky for me – I have male-pattern baldness :/

During a particularly rough “patch” last year…get it?!? 😉

It tends to get worse when I’m under a lot of stress, but fortunately I’ve been able to keep it fairly in check by driving south of the border to pick up some hair solution over-the-counter for $34 for a three-month supply. Why go to the States? Because here in Canada I have to purchase it with a prescription at $60 for a two-week supply. INSANITY.

Which explains my skepticism. Because none of these products that claim to give you thicker hair can actually make you grow more hair, none of them have worked for me.

But in the three weeks I’ve been using Fibralogy along with my Minoxidil solution, my hair has actually felt (and looked!) a lot more full. And I love it 🙂

I don’t know how much this stuff runs for in the store, but I can guarantee that once my current supply runs out I will be purchasing more! Not only does it make my hair look and feel fantastic, it even smells great.

I’ve never really been one for high-quality beauty products. I go for the $2.99 shampoo and conditioner and, while I probably should, I don’t give much thought to the ingredients in the products I use.

However, my thinning hair is something I often feel self-conscious about so I am more than willing to shell out some extra cash for something that actually works! And #FibralogyWorks!

Have you ever heard of Filloxane? What are your thoughts on hair-thickening products? Do you even care? 😉

    I can’t believe Canada scalps you so much for minoxidil! :[ That’s terrible! I’m glad Fibralogy worked for you though! :] I’ve never heard of it or filloxane, but my problem is usually that my hair’s too thick and weighs me down if I try to put it in anything higher than a low ponytail. :O

      You can donate some of your hair to me if you’d like!! 😉

      The whole minoxidil thing is pretty brutal, but then again so are a lot of our prices in Canada compared to your’s south of the border so we’re all used to it. Haha.
