Fighting Hair Loss and Thinning: So’Bio + Aubrey Organics

Organic Hair Care Duo Sobio AubreyAbout two months ago, I noticed my hair getting thinner and flatter than usual. I don’t know exactly what caused this, but I thought it had something to do with me keeping my hair in a tight ponytail every single day. Though it’s just a theory, I don’t know for sure. But what I knew for sure was that I needed to take some action and bring the hair some thickness and volume. I brought home So’Bio etic Niaouli & Guarana Shampoo and Aubrey Organics Biotin Repair Scalp Tonic with high hopes that they will help get my hair back.

SoBio Etic Niaouli Guarana Organic ShampooSo’bio Niaouli & Guarana Shampoo (250ml) is suitable for all hair types and was created to cleanse and strengthen the hair. It contains guarana seed extract, which is well known for its hair growth benefits. The shampoo has a strong herbal scent that resembles peppermint. The consistency is pretty runny, so I needed a handful of shampoo for my medium length hair to make it clean. I had a pleasant experience with other So’bio shampoos in the past (i.e. So’bio etic Lemon and Green Clay Clarifying Shampoo), but this one didn’t agree with my hair at all. It failed to cleanse my hair, so it looked lifeless and flat, not the result I was expecting. I finished the bottle, but I won’t be repurchasing it.

Vegan.

Aubrey Organics Biotin Repair Scalp TonicI read good reviews about this Aubrey Organics Biotin Repair Scalp Tonic in Citrus Rain (approx $8/£5 for 177ml), so I was excited to try it myself. It’s a liquid spray made with organic alcohol infused with various natural plant extracts and aloe vera juice. Because it contains alcohol, I was a bit concerned about how my hair would react to a daily use of this scalp tonic, but it turned out just fine. The tonic didn’t make my hair greasy and flat after using it. However, it didn’t give any volume either, though, I was expecting it. So if you’re looking for a volumizing spray, this is not it.

That’s a shame you didn’t get the results you want! I might try the tonic as it isn’t to expensive!

I’m sorry to hear about your health problems! I have noticed the loss just recently, so I’m not too concerned, but I’ll definitely see a doctor if it won’t stop soon.

That’s a pity that neither of these really worked for you. My hunt continues as well.
Back in 2010 I really noticed hair loss. My hairdresser said that it was normal when growing your hair but a couple of months later I was diagnosed with an under active thyroid and addisons disease. Under active thyroid is pretty common and hair loss is one of the symptoms. A blood test or two can confirm thyroid disease so if you are concerned then do look into seeing your doctor 🙂

Have you tried the new Aubrey Organics Chia Salt Spray? It worked wonders with my hair and gave lots of volume!

I haven’t tried it, yet, but it sounds like something I’d like. Especially, the volume part! Thanks, Krupa!
