The package containing Lipogaine Big 3 Hair Loss Shampoo finally arrived in our daughter’s apartment in Melbourne, Australia in the last week of February 2017.
Hubby and I wanted to try the new purple label. He felt that the older version of this shampoo worked to reduce the amount of hair loss for him.
Lipogaine (Purple Label) Shampoo – What About It?
I don’t share the results that hubby got though. I had tried the older version and provided my take on it HERE.
Honestly, I used the older version of Lipogain for five times but had stopped since. For me, it didn’t help with reducing the amount of hair that I lost and this was the reason I completely stopped using it.
However, when the purple label was introduced, I wanted to give it a try.
I understood that the difference between this new and the old one is the exclusion of emu oil in the purple label.
Emu oil, with its high concentration of oleic acid is supposed to help the scalp better absorb ingredients contained in the shampoo, to stimulate hair growth. Due to some consumers’ concerns in using animal products as an ingredient, Lipogaine had excluded this in the new purple label.
Using the Shampoo
Like any other shampoo, you wet your hair and apply an amount of the shampoo to your hair. Once it lathers, you rinse completely before repeating the process.
Unlike Ultrax Labs Hair Surge Shampoo, the Lipogaine Big 3 Shampoo foams relatively easier, so you don’t need a lot to work it through your hair.
As I stated above, this shampoo foams easily, making it easy to work through your hair.
Once my hair dries, I noticed that it’s also smooth and easy to comb/manage.
The first time that I tried the Lipogaine Big 3 Shampoo Purple Label, I could see that more hair fell into the sinkhole. I estimated that I lost about 35 to 40 strands.
In one wash – that’s quite unusual for me especially that I lost much less after using Art Naturals Organic Argan Oil Shampoo. So to say that this is alarming is certainly an understatement.
However, I tried to stay objective. I told myself I would give it another shot in my next wash. And…
The same thing happens – considerable amount of strands lost.
In addition to those that I lost into the sinkhole, I lost more as I run my fingers through my hair (no matter how gentle I was) as well as when I brushed my hair.
Initially, I thought I lost a lot of hair because the shampoo was really cleansing my scalp, clearing it off impurities.
But with the second wash and similar results, I became too scared to use it again.
I mean stopping hair loss is one thing but trying to grow your lost hair back is another daunting and uphill task.
I can’t deny that the Lipogaine Big 3 Shampoo (Purple Label) does make my hair softer but this hair manageability can’t compensate for the increased strands that I lost into the sinkhole… and thereafter.
I try varieties of shampoo that would help in reducing hair loss and stimulating hair growth.
So to be losing significant amount of hair with such a shampoo would defeat my purpose in finding effective shampoos for hair loss!
The shampoo might have worked for some but needless to say, I stopped using Lipogaine completely now – both the older and purple versions.
