  • "My hair has been thinning for a few years now. I have tried a few products and none really worked very well or were very expensive. There was new growth but the shedding continued. I decided to give this shampoo a try and after a couple weeks use I have noticed the shedding definitely reduced lots. My hair is getting a chance to grow thicker again."Calista in England
