Review of Ultrax Labs Hair Solaye
Are you thinking of buying Ultrax Labs Hair Solaye conditioner for hair loss? Hoping to get your hands on something that works without a prescription?
If the answer is yes, join the club. You see, I’ve been experiencing gradual hair loss for the past ten years. It started when I was in my mid-thirties and as time has gone on, the problem has accelerated.
Some of this is to be expected, right? The hard truth is that as most men age, they experience incremental hair loss on the top of the head and along the front hairline. Some of why this happens is a mystery. Most medical experts think it is a function of genetics – much in the same way men go grey.
At any rate, before we dive too far into this review, I need to get a few things out of the way. This will help to provide context to all that follows:
1. I’ve been using Minoxidil (Rogaine) for over a decade.
2. I’ve been taking prescription propecia for almost 10-years.
3. I suffer from seborrheic dermatitis (dandruff).
On that last point, seborrheic dermatitis can contribute to hair loss because it causes the sufferer to itch the scalp, thereby damaging the hair shaft.
To keep things simple, think of it as a condition that contributes to alopecia. Here’s an article from Health Line that addresses this topic more.
To deal with this problem, I use Neutrogena T-Gel (extra strength). I’m mentioning this because this review of Ultrax Lab’s Hair Solaye conditioner is about the conditioning product only and not the shampoo.
Does Hair Solaye Conditioner for Hair Loss Work?
Let’s move on to the essential reason you are here – to discover if Hair Solaye really works. All I can tell you is that I have been super pleased with the results. In fact, I would say that it has been transformative.
I purchased the company’s product from an online retailer and have used for approximately four months. Application of the conditioner has been around five times a week.
Now I’ve got to admit that I was leery at first because a lot of companies make tantalizing claims as a way of luring consumers into making a purchase.
That said, I decided to throw caution to the wind and give it a whirl. On the very first use, I immediately noticed that my hair looked and felt thicker. No, I didn’t expect “instant results” on the growth front but I also wasn’t prepared for the thickening effect.
Solaye’s conditioner is infused with caffeine. I am thinking this may be part of what I experienced. Who knows? At any rate, I used the product for just over four months.
I absolutely noticed new growth on the crown of my head. Now bear in mind it took approximately eight weeks for me to see this. By month three, it was very noticeable. In fact, my barber even said something to me when I came in for a trim. “Did you do something with your hair – it’s very thick,” he observed.
Here’s what the company says is in the bottle:
- Caffeine: an ingredient thought to encourage new hair growth and extend the life of what’s already on top. Caffeine is also thought to strengthen the hair’s root.
- Eucalyptus: Scientific studies suggest leaves from this flowering tree help to promote hair growth because it fortifies the follicle’s root.
- Chamomile Recutitta: Is a plant used in medicine to reduce inflammation. Some research suggests it can help calm the scalp, allowing irritated follicles to heal, thereby allowing for hair to grow.
How I used Hair Solaye Conditioner
Because I use Neutrogena T-Gel for my scalp problem, I only washed my hair two times a week per the directions. But 5 times a week, I used Hair Solaye’s caffeine-infused conditioning product.
Application was simple. I’d place a quarter size amount in my palm, massage it into my scalp and then spread the rest gently over my head so that my hair got treated.
The big pro about this product: It worked for me. Here are some other impressions:
- A little bit goes a long way.
- Pleasant smell that is not overbearing
- Soothes the scalp
- Offers a lot of volume
- The 8oz fluid bottle seems to last for three months
Not everything was perfect with Ultrax Labs Hair Solaye Conditioner. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the following:
- There’s no pump to the bottle. This means you must squeeze it out.
- Depending on where you buy the product, it comes in tight clear wrapping, making it a real pain to remove the cellophane.
- The font on the bottle’s directions is difficult to read; a function of packaging I suppose.
So, is Ultrax Labs Hair Solaye worth the money?
All I can say is that I have been very happy with the results. With a national retail price of around $49.00, I’m not going to tell you that this product is cheap. It’s not.
That said, I will say that I was willing to pay any price for something that produced results.
Yes, there are other reviews online that suggest this conditioner isn’t all that great and that the hype doesn’t live up to the realities. Speaking only for myself, I can’t say this has been my experience.
