I was very happy to check Dr. Dennis Resiliency Root Nourishing Scalp Conditioner Gross ($ 34 in the shop). I’m in my early sixties and have dyed hair, to me, it feels dry; however, my stylist tells me that there is nothing wrong. I just like my hair feel softer and can say that this conditioner does this very well!
At first, I was not sure this would work, because it does not feel like any conditioner I’ve used. This conditioner does not slip with traditional conditioners. This is because it does not contain chemicals that cause this slippery consistency as in many store-bought brands. I had to dig around to find the list of ingredients, because it is not printed on the flexible bottle.
This conditioner is designed to work on the scalp, not the ends of the hair as traditional. Regular use is said to promote oil production in the healthy scalp and improve hair quality as it grows. Key ingredients include adenosine an ingredient that has been shown to stimulate hair growth and thicken the hair shaft in women, and copper peptides to strengthen. Also it contains nutritional vitamin B, acid hair conditioning agents and anti-inflammatory azelaic.
For all the good ingredients, there may be one or two that are potentially annoying, so I recommend that you look up the ingredients for yourself. One of the ingredients that led me to contact the company were progesterone. I could not imagine why it has been included. The company informed me that the inclusion of progesterone is “stop hair loss and hair loss on the scalp and promote hair growth and strength.”
Towards the beginning of the testing process, have experienced some irritation – probably leaving it on the scalp too long, so just leave it on the scalp for a moment to another. It’s just a guess, but I think the peppermint oil may have been the cause. I used the scalp Nourishing Conditioner for six weeks, and I think my hair is brighter and smoother because of it. I imagine it might take longer to notice any thickness added to my fine hair.
Note that a couple of attempts needed to get the application process to perfection. It is supposed to massage the conditioner into the scalp, which before working along her hair. I decided to wet hair in the sink, apply conditioner to the scalp and then work through the ends while in the shower. (My area is under water restriction.)
I think this conditioner is worth a try, although the price may seem high. Overall, my hair feels healthier and smoother as I hoped it would. I would just request that the company print the full list of ingredients in the bowl.
