Raise your hand if your hair is feeling tired, is thinning on some areas or if you are familiar with the shower drain constantly being clogged up with hair? Be reassured, you are not the only one! According to an Australian study*, 1 in 2 women will suffer from hair loss at some point in time due to hormonal imbalances, poor diet or stress and to top that up, the prevalence gradually increases with age!
A number of treatments are available for hair loss but most of them are either very expensive or on prescription requiring a doctor’s supervision and cannot be used while pregnant or breastfeeding.
French Beauty Co. staffer Emilie recently had a baby girl and started to experience the dreaded post-partum hair loss. So we naturally asked her to put Klorane Quinine range to the test and share her experience.
* Australian Journal of General Practice, July 2018
This best-selling shampoo is powered by natural Quinine extract and fortifying B Vitamins to strengthen, revitalise and restore thickness to thinning, lifeless hair. Perfect complement to hair loss treatments, this gentle formula restores vigour, energy and resistance to hair while maintaining its thickness. Verdict?
"At first, I was surprised by the very dark brownish colour of the shampoo but once applied, it lathered very well on the hair.
Being French I am very familiar with shampoo that doesn’t overly foam (which is gentler for the hair anyway) so this wasn’t an issue for me at all and I really enjoyed the plant-based scent.
After using the shampoo for a couple of weeks, I found my hair much more vigorous, hydrated and softer. It also helped detangle my hair avoiding hair breakage while brushing.
While I am still breastfeeding, I have been more cautious of the products I used so being a clean formula [free from silicones, SLS, parabens, MIT and triclosan] was a big plus!"
Klorane Quinine Keratin Strength Fortifying Spray
Superfood for your hair, this Keratin Strength Fortifying Spray contains a nutritional cocktail of Vitamins B3, B5, B6, and B8, revitalising Caffeine, Quinine extract and plant-based Keratin to strengthen, reinvigorate and restore thickness to hair. This is what Emilie had to say:
“For me this is the real highlight of the range! First of all I particularly liked the non-greasy, non-sticky and no-rinse formula, which is packaged in a pump bottle, that delivers the optimal amount to the hair without any mess. It doesn’t take long at all to apply which is key when you’re a busy mum!
In terms of efficacy itself, I have only been using the product under a month and I already noticed some changes in my hair: it looks healthier and shinier, seems to have more body and I am definitely sure it looks thicker than how it was when I started.
I also feel that my hair loss has really slowed down as I now collect a lot less hair on my hairbrush! I am quite impressed with the results in such a little time.”
