I have fine hair. Is that how my hair has always been? I don’t know for sure. It never bothered me before. But through the years, almost half the time when I go to a hair salon, I would get a comment about how fine my hair is. I finally decided to do something about it. 

In comes The Ordinary. So I’ve heard of this beauty brand. People rave about how amazing their skincare line is. But I didn’t know they carried products that caters to hair concerns too until a few months ago when I accompanied a friend to a make up shop located just a floor below our office.

Caught my attention of course and after doing some research online, I found out this is a new product but already it’s gotten rave reviews on its website. I needed to try it and so I went to BeautyMNL to purchase it – it was more expensive to buy it at that make up shop. At BeautyMNL, you can get it at Php1,450 while at that store, it went as high as Php2,500. What a whopping difference! 

Here’s the product info on the website:

This concentrated formula is designed to support hair health so that it looks thicker, denser, fuller and healthier. The technologies present in this formula include REDENSYL™ complex (with Larix Europaea Wood Extract and Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract), Procapil™ peptide complex (with Biotinoyl Tripeptide-1), CAPIXYL™ peptide complex (with Acetyl Tetrapeptide-3 and Trifolium Pratense Flower Extract), BAICAPIL™ complex (with Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Triticum Vulgare Germ Extract and Glycine Soja Germ Extract), AnaGain™ (Pisum Sativum Extract) and High-Solubility Caffeine (1% net Caffeine by weight), in an ultra-lightweight, emollient base for efficient penetration. The total concentration of these technologies in the formula by weight is 21.15%.

Basically the product claims to give you thicker, denser, fuller and healthier hair which I need! Redensyl seems to be the key ingredient that’s supposed to help the user achieve this. 

The directions said to apply a few drops or apply as needed at bed time, applying it to clean, dry scalp. Massage it thoroughly and leave it on. I used the product for about two months religiously following the directions. 

What I Liked About This:

  • I liked that it was cheaper than the Kerastase Densifique vials that also claims would help me thicken my hair. Those vials are about Php8k per box!
  • I liked that the bottle is small. Can take this anywhere even when I travel! 

But let’s talk about the results as I am sure you’re also curious to know whether the rave reviews are legit!  

The result: 

I experienced less hair fall which especially happens when I’m taking a bath! I know I said this about Sugarbear Hair vitamins as well so how do I know that this product was actually effective in lessening hair fall? The thing about Sugarbear Hair is that I wasn’t taking it religiously. I wanted to. But I couldn’t buy the blue vitamins easily since it was out of stock. There was a gap in my intake and so I know that The Ordinary Multi-Peptide Hair Serum worked! 
But did it thicken my hair? Nope! Sure it’s not supposed to be like magic but at least I should have some baby hair growth right? A scalp test proved otherwise though. I was definitely disappointed! 

So yeah I definitely didn’t do a repeat purchase. Less hair fall is great but I want a head full of thick, denser and healthy hair. My search for a hair care product that would reduce my hair fall and achieve thicker, denser, fuller and basically healthier hair is still ongoing.
