Novuhair: The Answer to My Hair Loss

Based on research, although hair loss seem to be a prominent problem to men, forty percent (40%) of people who suffer from hair loss are women. It mostly happens after giving birth and menopausal, but it can happen at any age for different reasons. Most common causes of hair loss are stress, illness, medications, chemicals and things that interfere with the cycle…puberty, pregnancy and menopausal.

My hair loss is due to chemical applied when I had my hair rebond. I was born with wavy hair and curly bangs (yes curly bangs!) Can you imagine that?! And just like other women, I am dreaming to have bouncy, long, shiny, luxurious hair that can catch everyone’s attention just like those in shampoo advertisements. So whenever I see my bangs curl again, I had my hair rebonded and that was for 3 consecutive years. And now I have a receding hairline due to hair fall. My forehead becomes wider and I can see more of my forehead when I pull my hair back. It scares me that if I don’t treat it now, I would have a 6-inch wide forehead after three more years. So it’s good to know that there’s a way to fix this excessive hair loss…NOVUHAIR 3-in-1, nature’s answer to hair loss.

I was afraid to use NOVUHAIR at first because it might trigger my asthma just like other products that I have tried. But when I learned that NOVUHAIR is made of ingredients that are mostly found in our kitchen, I realized that it’s safe to use.

NOVUHAIR was discovered, tried and tested by beauty icon and hair care expert Fanny Serrano himself. Unlike other shampoo or medications that are used to treat hair loss and baldness, NOVUHAIR contains herbal components, as pure as only nature could provide, which are widely known to benefit hair and scalp such as ginger, malunggay (Moringa oleifera), ginseng, Gofu Kola, Indian gooseberry, aloe vera, virgin coconut oil, peppermint oil, lemongrass oil, rosemary oil, sweet almond oil, safflower, biotin and vitamin B5. These ingredients are known (one way or another) to strengthen and reactivate hair follicles, reduce hair loss and stimulate hair growth.

spray and flip cap
NOVUHAIR 3-in-1 contains a bottle of 200ml each Herbal Shampoo, Herbal Conditioner and Topical Scalp Lotion. Though the bottles have screw caps, the package comes with a sprayer for the topical scalp lotion and two flip top caps for the shampoo and conditioner for easier application.

NOVUHAIR herbal shampoo
NOVUHAIR Herbal Shampoo is thick and brown in color. I used it just like the ordinary shampoo. It can be used twice a day for optimal results.

NOVUHAIR herbal conditioner
NOVUHAIR Herbal conditioner is thick and somewhat like beige in color. It complements the NOVUHAIR Herbal Shampoo very well.

NOVUHAIR topical scalp lotion

NOVUHAIR Topical Scalp Lotion is liquid (quite sticky on hand) that is color brown. I use it after the shampoo and conditioner. I don’t spray it on my scalp directly. Instead, I spray it on my hand then massage it on the scalp for 5-10 minutes then rinse my hair again.

All three, shampoo, conditioner and scalp lotion, have the same smell. The smell is somewhat like that of chamomile. They are made from herbs so don’t expect them to be as fragrant as the shampoo and conditioners that you usually use.

After more than a week of use, I noticed lesser hair fall. Well it’s normal to lose strands of hair everyday but I am no longer losing more hair than I should. My hair is not thicker yet (what would I expect in just a week of use?) but I am hoping that it will after few months of using NOVUHAIR 3-in-1. It adds volume to my hair though. I am glad that I was given the chance to try this product.
