I am 56 , post-menopausal, and have my hair colored and highlighted every 2 months. I have not tried either the serum or mask. The Phytodensium Anti-Aging Shampoo is great for my hair. Please see my review for this shampoo for details.
This is an Anti-Aging product, I am 54 years old, have always had fine, thin hair. I do color with a single process due to graying. So I thought these would be PERFECT products for a woman my age.... Right? Wrong!
First off the biggest problem with the shampoo and mask is lack of slip to them. This makes them really rough to work into your hair. I found the amount of hair falling out in my hands during application scary as it was more than any other product I've ever used. Ever.
Economical, NO! It takes more than a cap of the shampoo full to wash my shoulder length hair, more like a hand full of shampoo. It's runny, spills out of your hand during application...difficult cap makes shampoo hard to use without getting it in your eyes.... and it burns terrifically when it does. They should put a cap with a flip spout on the bottle. I found the online recommendation to use the shampoo twice impossible to follow as my hair is left so dry and tangled that I can't even get my fingers through my hair. I'm running to the conditioner bottle for relief.
While the shampoo was runny, the mask was the opposite....thick, pasty and so sticky that it's impossible to comb through your hair without breaking. Yikes! I didn't want to increase the thinning of my hair, I wanted to decrease it! I've never ever used a hair mask that was so impossible to distribute through hair ..... utter garbage!
The serum IS easy enough to use, its watery, you just squirt it with the eyedropper over your scalp and it does't appear to leave a residue or stickiness. Not so sure it's going to stop my 54 year old hair from turning gray as claimed though. But since it doesn't seem to damage my hair (as the shampoo and mask did) I will continue to use it until it's gone.
After use of all three Phytodensium anti-aging products my hair ends did have increased volume (not exactly where I wanted the volume) but what was unacceptable was my hair seemed more weak and delicate than before use. Almost damaged from it's use, as I had increased breaking afterwards on combing. I had to stop shampooing for a week afterwards, to just using conditioner (Aveda) to restore the manageability and softness to my hair.
If you really have concerns about anti-aging and thinning hair I honestly recommend you avoid these products, look at the Kerastase and Aveda products instead.

Hi! My hair starting thinning in my late 20's but due to stress. Phyto is wonderful for this problem, in fact-after using it for several years-it isnt even a problem anymore! I use lots of Phyto products but the Progenium line has probably made the biggest difference in this area. Phytolactum is in this line, and is better if your hair is a little on the drier side. Make sure that you are letting your second wash with the shampoo stay on for a few minutes to recieve maximum benefits (just a capful works each time, but make sure you are doing two seperate washes). I just recently started using the mask, but remember that Phyto Sesame conditioner is their best for hydrating, and will not take away from the Progenium in the shampoo and serum. Make sure that you do get the Phytodensium Serum to use immediatley after you wash and condition your hair. It needs to be towel dried but without other products in it to work the best. The vitamins didnt impress me, but I know that they do work well for others. Good luck!

I am in my thirties with fine but shiny hair. I don't have a ton of it either. The mask and the shampoo have both helped me. I use them in tandem 2x per week. Use natural boar bristle brushes too - get rid of paddle brushes with the little balls on the ends of the bristles. they'll rip out your hair. I then use organic sulfate free shampoo and conditioner the rest of the week and dry shampoo when I need some texture. I feel like my hair looks thicker. the mask is really good and a little goes a long way. this shampoo is too drying for me for daily use.
