    Has anyone tried this? Their hair products are supposed to make hair thicker, longer, & stronger. Now, I don't have thinning hair myself & my hair's at my waist already, but who doesn't want thicker hair?

    I hear about it all the time on the radio & I'm thinking of possibly trying it this summer.

    I have long hair and it is very thick. I like it, don't get me wrong, but it is very hot. I don't wear my hair up at school because it would reveal a tattoo and I nearly smother in the spring.

    But, cool product if it works!

    I do have thinning hair....so much that it's really bothering me.
    I am currently trying the Biotin shampoo and scalp therapy. I don't notice too much of a difference though....

    Ovation is next depending on what I find out with a little more research.

    I finally bought it the last time I had my county fair this past yr. They had a vendor booth. It was about $80 total. There's 3 bottles: Shampoo, conditining rinse, & moisterizer I believe. After just one wash w/ the shampoo & conditioner, I like how my hair looks. We'll see how it is after a # of weeks.

    Did you get the advanced formula? It looks like the original one was really harsh on the skin and has several potentially toxic chemicals in it. The new formula doesn't look as bad. It says it lasts 3 months for $80. I do not spend more than $60 for 3 months of shampoo, conditioner, leave-in conditioner, gel, and hair mask, and I use all LUSH products. This stuff would have to make my hair look really amazing for me to spend that kind of money on it. I had never heard of it before this thread, but it sounds like some of those other hair products on TV like Wen or whatever that always seem like a gimmick to me.

    I had super thick hair until my 20's. I did NOT want hair any thicker. It was too thick for one pony tail, and it was too thick for most barrettes. Plus, it was stick straight and smooth, so it wouldn't hold things like combs.

    Now I wish I had my super thick hair back. When it left, it really left. Unfortunately, I'm way past the shampoo/conditioner kind of fix.

    Me neither. Of course, with my short, choppy hair cut, I don't need much in the way of hair care--wash and wear, that's me!

    Uh oh. My bottles don't say "advanced" on it that I can tell.

    A lot of people had problems with the original formula. If you have sensitive skin at all, you may want to look closely at the ingredient list. It looks like the product has Sodium Laurel Sulfate, an irritant, and several other known carcinogens, even in the new formula.

    There was a lot of stuff circulating about sodium laurel sulfate years ago. I hadn't heard anything in a long time. Might want to read this.

    After taking a toxicity in the environment class at the university when I was still a student years ago, I was so freaked out that I threw away all of my shampoos, body washes, makeup, etc. To this day I still use only Berts Bees products. For makeup I use this organic, all natural product.

    Better safe than sorry. :)

    I know SLS doesn't cause cancer. I said it is an irritant. That means it irritates the skin, especially if not rinsed off completely. Some of the other chemicals (not SLS) seem to be carcinogens, or at least on the watch list. SLS should be fine if it is rinsed completely off of the skin, and used in a small amount. I know it's in almost everything, but when something is being marketed as being super concentrated I'd be worried about the amounts of the chemicals in it.

    My bf had cancer when he was younger and I remember the ad saying that it can work for people who had chemo, so he was thinking about looking into this. I'll be interested to hear how it works!
