NeoCell KERATIN Hair Volumizer Review & Giveaway

KERATIN Hair Volumizer Capsules

I don't think that I have ever posted about this issue before, but here I go.

I have thinning hair. Not sure why it happened, but numerous things could be part of it. Runs in the family, hormones, etc. I noticed it shortly after my last pregnancy. After we lost the baby, I started shedding, as they call it. Not on the sides, or front or even back, but right on top of my head. Every day, showering and washing my hair would make me sad because I could see all the hair in the drain.  I had gone to the dermatologist and they couldn't come up with any main cause for it, but I did get two questionable moles removed, so it was good that I did go.

Each day, more hair. People were noticing. Well, at least I thought that they were noticing. I became self conscious about my hair. 

I should post that I have very fine hair to start with, so any loss, at least to me, feels like it is the Grand Canyon on my head, even though the spot was small.

This has gone on for a few years now. I have tried some over the counter things in the past, but didn't notice a huge difference.

So I got the chance to try this product from NeoCell: Keratin Hair Volumizer which claims to "improve hair strength, enhance hair volume and increase shine."

Product information:

Keratin hair volumizer is an all-natural solution for strong, lustrous, and thick healthy hair that starts from the inside. Dry, brittle,thinning hair is associated with a lack of nutrients that are essential to strong and resilient hair. Keratin Hair Volumizer contains clinically proven ingredients to enhance hair strength and reduce normal hair loss.*Key Ingredients:
Cynatine HNS Solubilized Keratin: The ability to convert natural keratin into a functional form that is bio-available to the body is a recent advancement. Cynatine HNS® is solubilized enabling it to be both bioactive and bioavailable in the body, which allows it to bind with hair. Cynatine HNS® has been clinically proven to reduce hair loss from washing, improve hair strength and improve the brightness and luster of hair.*

Hydrolyzed Super Collagen: Hydrolyzed Super Collagen™ is a structural component of hair, skin and nail health. Super Collagen™ is a rich source of glycine, proline, alanine and hydroxyproline, which are the main constituents of collagen in the hair. Research suggests that collagen supplementation stimulates fibroblasts at the hair root, resulting in increased diameter of the hair shaft. NeoCell's pharmaceutical grade Super Collagen™ is enzymatically hydrolyzed, providing a collagen amino acid ratio with low molecular weight for maximum bioavailability.*
Amla Extract: Amla, or Indian Gooseberry, has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine for its anti-aging properties. Amla provides high concentrations of Vitamin C and and has been revered for being a powerful antioxidant.*Vitamin C: Vitamin C is an antioxidant that is an important part of optimal collagen formation.*

My Opinion:

Suggested use: Take 2 tablets daily. 
Other Ingredients: Vegetable Magnesium sterate and kosher gelatin capsule.
Does not contain: soy, wheat, lactose, starch, yeast or artificial flavors. Gluten Free.

First, I like the fact that these come in capsule form. Easy to swallow. Nice and smooth. No funky aftertaste from the powder, quick and easy. 

I'm not sure if I haven't been taken them long enough, but I didn't notice a huge difference in my  hair volume. But, then again, as I mentioned up above, I have fine hair to start with. Hubby said that it looked like it had a bit more volume on top than it did before.  And, I will take that. As I said, I am self-conscious about it to start with.

I have noticed that I don't lose as much hair now when I wash my hair. I was having to clean out the drain quite frequently, not it isn't as bad. But, I did notice that my hair does appear more shiny. More clean looking and that makes me happy. It has a shine to it.

Plus, Keratin also helps with your finger nails and improves your skin. So it has many many other benefits besides being a hair volumizer. 

Overall, on a scale of 1 to 10, I would give this a good solid 9 for ease of taking the pills, ingredients used, and results. I was impressed with it and plan to find some in a retailer so I can continue to take it and see if my hair volume really improves.
