The motivation behind this blog came from a review we received from a user, which I will share with you here. It was also the trigger that made us review and upgrade our dosage instructions.
"I have been using this product for about a year. Admittedly not every day, only when I wash my hair which is twice a week. I usually only do 5-6 sprays, which I now realise is not enough. I have noticed that even though I haven't been following the required dosage there is still a significant strengthening of my hair. My hair feels fuller and stronger. I am 50 years old and have fine, limp, blonde hair. I have battled with lifeless hair all my life. With Activance my hair is the best it has been in many years. I highly recommend this product and will continue to use it moving forward."
It was a lovely review, but it highlighted that perhaps our users don't fully understand our advice on how and when to use our products. We can not emphasise enough how important it is to apply our leave-in hair nutrients frequently and generously!
We champion hair and scalp health for everyone and our message is clear
"It's time you gave the same attention to your hair and scalp that you invest in your skincare routine."
Healthy glowing skin doesn't happen without intervention. The same goes for your hair; it's essential to include it in your daily self-care routine, alongside primary personal care like brushing your teeth or applying sunscreen. Only when you care for and nourish it can you achieve optimal hair and scalp health over your lifetime.
Did you know that most people only notice hair loss after they have already lost one-third of it!
When an Activance hair nutrient treatment is incorporated into your daily wellness routine in your younger years, it will provide you with a lifetime of thick, beautiful, healthy hair.
Replacing lost nutrients is not a new concept. For years we've been taking supplements to replace vitamins and minerals that deplete naturally during the ageing process or from poor health, environmental factors or lifestyle habits.
So many metaphors, only one blog!
Imagine your scalp is like a garden. You start with that really expensive potting mix with some of that slow-release fertiliser, so everything is great for a few years. But as every good gardener knows, that won't last forever eventually; to keep your plants healthy and vigorous, you'll need to add more nutrients.
That's a pretty simple analogy for the far more complex strategy of maintaining your hair and scalp health over your lifetime, but you get the idea.
Here's a little secret about our leave-in hair nutrients...
If you leave our hair nutrients inside their bottle on your bathroom vanity, they will not help you grow your hair or provide you with the numerous other benefits our leave-in treatments offer when applied at the correct dosage and frequency to your hair and scalp!
We recently updated our website product pages with detailed advice on HOW MUCH and HOW OFTEN you should be using our hair nutrients leave-in treatments to ensure results in the earliest possible timeframe. We also share an estimated timeline on our FAQ's page in which you can start seeing the results from using our LIT's as part of an Active Treatment program.
So... HOW MUCH and HOW OFTEN?
We recommend beginning with the 'ACTIVE TREATMENT' dosage for the first 2-4 weeks* or until successful outcomes become obvious before switching to a 'MAINTENANCE / PREVENTATIVE TREATMENT' dose every second day or twice a week for ongoing hair and scalp health.
ACTIVE TREATMENT DOSAGE
Apply a minimum of 20-30 sprays (5.0-7.5ml) once daily (every day) to the affected scalp, hair areas, and surroundings. Ensure minimum 20-22 sprays on the scalp/hair roots and 10-8 sprays on mid-lengths and ends of hair shafts. For severe cases, you can apply twice a day.
MAINTENANCE / PREVENTATIVE TREATMENT DOSAGE
Apply 20-30 sprays (5.0-7.5ml) on alternate days or 30-40 sprays (10-13ml) every third day after successful hair regrowth results from following the Active Treatment dosage. Ensure treatment covers both scalp and hair in a similar ratio as when used as an Active Treatment.
*For most hair and scalp issues, including excessive hair fall, BUT for hair loss, a minimum of 4-6 months is required for new regrowth to be visibly seen by the naked eye. For alopecia areata, it could take up to 12 months for new regrowth to become noticeable.
Natural and Safe Hair Growth
Most importantly, Activance products are so natural, safe, and gentle we recommend their use to people of all genders, ages, and stages of life and even while pregnant and breastfeeding.
