OGX Hair Shampoo Review
A common symptom of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is hair loss or hair thinning.
Women with PCOS experience hair loss or hair thinning as a result of a hormone imbalance. Women with PCOS have high levels of androgen and dihydrotestosterone (DHT). An excess of testosterone creates DHT. DHT, more specifically, causes hair loss. Women are only supposed to have small amounts of testosterone, therefore having an excess of this hormone, especially DHT means that it will attach itself onto the hair follicles and begin to affect the hair, eventually to the point of hair loss, it also leads to the follicle to stop producing new hair, essentially creating a clogged follicle.
When it comes PCOS and hair loss, nutrition is so crucial. However, as I mentioned in the PCOS hair loss treatment post, there are certain oils and ingredients that can help strengthen and thicken the hair. In that post, I mentioned a shampoo by the company OGX.
It is important to note that no shampoo will help you grow new hair.
Organix OGX Shampoos
I am always on the look out for new shampoos that can help the look and feel of my hair. A few months ago I came across OGX hair shampoos, they have a whole range of shampoos and conditioners. The store I was in had an offer so I decided to purchase the; Argan oil of Morocco, Brazilian Keratin Therapy and Coconut Milk.
The OGX Hair Care line has been created for those who desire a smoother, sleeker finish to their hair. The blurb states that it will straighten the cuticle of the hair, it most likely does to the smallest extent.
Disclaimer: None of the shampoos state that they promote hair growth. These shampoos are simply great for helping strengthen, give the hair a smooth and soft feel and a shiny look.
A great thing about their shampoos is that they sulphate free, although this in turn means that the shampoo does not lather up quite as well as a typical shampoo. However, regardless of that, it does wash and cleanse the hair well.
All 3 shampoos that I purchased were luxurious and thick, they almost have a jelly look and consistency. The smell, of each one continues to linger well after you have finished, which I love.
It cleanses my scalp well, all of the accumulated sebum and oils are gone, without drying it out too much. Its effects last for 2 days which is a not bad.
Research has shown that coconut oil is an effective treatment for hair loss. Based upon coconut oils composition coconut oil has many great properties, including; anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and ati-viral. Studies show how coconut oil is able to enter inside the hair shaft preventing hair damage.
The OGX Coconut Milk Shampoo states that it can strengthen, add elasticity, hydrate and balance the hair. The shampoo has a coconut smell and the jelly like consistency.
I have certainly noticed that the coconut milk shampoo did help with strength and the hydration of my hair, my hair no longer looked dry.
Brazilian Keratin Therapy
Keratin is naturally found in the flat cells of our hairs, it helps to keep them looking healthy, strong and elastic. However, the amount of keratin in our hair begins to diminish and therefore leaves it dry and brittle. Helping to add some keratin back in the hair is important to keep the hair looking healthy and strong.
The OGX Brazilian Keratin Therapy Shampoo states that it can help strengthen and soften the hair, while also softening an giving the hair a nice shine.
After a few washes I began noticing he liveliness o my hair coming back. My hair looked stronger and healthier.
Argan Oil of Morocco
There is no current research into Argan oil and hair growth, Although it is an oil which has been using for many years as a hair treatment. Due to Argan Oils high concentration of fatty acids and Vitamin E it can help keep the hair moisturised and give it a shine.
The Argan Oil of Morocco OGX Shampoo states that it can restore strength, shine, softness and silkiness. It has a luxurious golden colour and great smell. I have noticed that my hair is no longer frizzy since using it, it also made my hair soft, voluminous and it doesn't look dry.
