It’s been some time since my scalp gave me any problems but due to the cold weather in Shanghai back from my business trip, my scalp has been really dry and flaky. I thought that the problem could be solved by coming back to the tropical climate and diligently scrubbing my scalp with shampoo, but I was wrong. I couldn’t see an improvement in my flaky scalp until I’ve tried the Dr.FORHAIR Folligen Haircare range. I must say that the products came just in time for me to save my scalp issues.
Dr.FORHAIR is a hair care and scalp specialist company, with its products formulated via the clinical expertise of highly-recognised hair transplant medical group FORHAIR, which has a trusted 24-year history in Korea. I too didn’t know about the brand until I was given a chance to try their star products! In particular, I’ve tried the Folligen Shampoo, the Folligen Scaler and the Folligen Easy Swab to rid of my flaky scalp problem.
In case you didn’t know, as part of the natural aging process, DHT is a hormone that attaches itself to the roots of your hair follicles and causes them to shrink over time. By inhibiting the production of DHT, the amount of hair loss can be reduced. Thus, Dr.FORHAIR, with its Folligen ingredient that contains Saw Palmetto, helps slows down the enzyme that produces DHT, which in turn reduces hair fall as the process is being delayed. Therefore the Folligen range helps to ensure that your scalp remains healthy and hair loss reduced.
The first I tried was the Folligen Shampoo and I really liked the fruit fragrance upon dispensing it!
Like the usual shampoos, this Folligen Shampoo comes in a pump bottle for easy dispense. It is said to help cleanse scalp pores blocked with dandruff and oil and thus nurtures a healthy scalp for hair roots to produce strong hair.
Surprisingly, the shampoo’s texture is much like milk, instead of the regular gel-like sticky texture but somehow, produces quite a healthy amount of lather. After washing, you’ll feel a cooling sensation which feels pretty good and refreshing. I quite like this shampoo because it makes me feel that my scalp is squeaky clean and healthy! It does help my hair to be smoother as well.
As mentioned earlier, after coming back from a cold and dry climate, my scalp started to flake really badly, to the extent that I had to individually pick the flakes out from my hair. Yes, I know, it sounds nasty but thanks to this Folligen Scaler, the problem was solved in a couple of days!
The Folligen Scaler is a deep cleansing scrub that uses Dead Sea Salt to purify the scalp by removing excessive sebum, dirt and other impurities from the hair. I must say that though it really helps to remove dandruff and dirt, it does dry out my hair quite a bit. I would recommend you to use this before the Folligen Shampoo so that you don’t leave the bathroom with unmanageable hair.
The product comes in a bottle with a small tip for you to accurately apply to the problem areas on the scalp.
If you feel that your scalp is itchy or uncomfortable during the day, you can also opt for the Folligen Easy Swabs. They are essentially giant cotton buds soaked in a special Folligen formula that helps you to removes excessive sebum, dandruff, itching, and impurities on the scalp, leaving it fresh with a cool menthol fragrance.
It comes in a box for your weekly needs and you can travel with them easily. Simply peel the packaging and you’re good to use. Apply the swabs onto areas you want to refresh and it kinda acts like a dry shampoo, but better, because of the cooling, minty effect!
Overall, I was very surprised at the results of this hair care range because it really did help me to overcome my flaky scalp issues within a couple of days, and the products smell really good too!
