Someone asked me if Bioxsine shampoo is any good or not (in a comment on my hair loss shampoos article) so I did a search for it and found no pages on the internet whatsoever listing its ingredients! So I thought I’d buy a bottle and publish its ingredients so everyone can see what they are.
- Sodium Laureth Sulfate
- Common Yarrow
- Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate
- Decyl Glucoside
- Propylene Glycol Mel/Honey
- Sodium Chloride
- PEG/PPG-120/10 Trimethylolpropane Trioleate
- Hydroxypropyl Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride
- Sea Salt Extract
- Benzoic Acid
- Dehydroacetic Acid
- C11-15 Pareth-7
- Citric Acid
Some pretty big words in there! But are these ingredients any good? Well, if you know that your scalp and hair react badly to Sodium Laureth Sulphate you’d be better off trying one of these SLS free organic shampoos. Apart from a few chemicals with very long names that won’t provide your hair and scalp with any particular benefits, there are some really good ingredients in Bioxsine shampoo.
The key ingredients to highlight here are nettle and horsetail, both of which are known for the hair growth promoting properties.
Is Bioxsine Shampoo any good?
Based on the ingredients, yes it is one of the better hair loss shampoos. However the claims about its effectiveness on the packaging are almost unbelievable to me. Here’s what it says on the packaging:
Clinical tests proved that Bioxsine Shampoo;
- prevented hair loss in 70% and
- increased hair growth in 40% of participants
*test results obtained after 8 months’ regular use of Bioxsine Shampoo
To me these claims are far too good to be true and in the real world I highly doubt that you would see such statistics mirrored.
Testing Bioxsine Anti-Hair Loss Shampoo in the real world
Fortunately I have found a loyal test subject who is suffering from premature hair loss and is using no hair loss treatments, medications or products. Over the next 8 months he will trial Bioxsine in the real world and we’ll see how well it performs and what our thoughts are.
Don’t expect miracles from any anti hair loss shampoos. Quite simply, a shampoo is not going to stop your hair loss and regrow your hair. If you want to achieve real results you need to do far more extreme things. Namely:
- Massively increase blood circulation in the scalp increasing nutrient supply to the follicles
- Reduce DHT production in your body
- Protect your hair from DHT and remove DHT from your scalp
- Clear the pores in your scalp, removing old hardened sebum
- Reduce stress levels
However, on preliminary examination, Bioxsine is a decent shampoo so I will be adding it to the Best Shampoos for Hair Loss list. In 8 months I’ll post again with a more conclusive review.
Until next time, good night folks!
