Reviewing the Pluses of Hairfix Follicle Plus - and a September Offer, too!
We love receiving feedback from our customers. It helps us know that we’re giving you and your hair what you want and need – and whether there’s room for improvement.
So, whether our reviews come from QVC UK, TVSN Australia, Facebook or our own website, they help us and we hope they’ll help you, too, especially if you’re trying to decide whether Hairfix is for you.
This week we focus on one of our best sellers, Hairfix Follicle Plus Anti-Age Caffeine & Pro-Vitamin Gel for Hair & Scalp. This gel was scientifically formulated to counter the early signs of thinning hair. Such thinning is generally due to hormonal changes (in pregnancy, post-pregnancy or with the passage of time) or the age related thinning of the scalp’s skin which means that our hair has shallower roots and so falls out more easily.
If this sounds familiar to you, you may like to hear what our customers say:
Wonderful Hair Growth
I have been using this product for years following an operation on my head that caused considerable hair loss. By treating my follicles 3-4 time a week I was able to achieve healthy new growth. I was so impressed by this that I continued to use it, which has resulted in the thickening of my hair all over the scalp and noticeable healthy, shiny regrowth. There is nothing else as good!
Just love this product. A few pumps give my hair body. I put this on my short hair when wet and blow-dry as normal. The Customer Service from this company is fantastic. Thank you.
Simply Great – Just Be Patient and Persevere
I simply love this. It’s easy to use just a few times a week, very affordable and lasts ages. It won’t give you a full head of thick hair if you’ve never had really thick hair. However what it will do is give your hair extra volume and stop it shedding so much, therefore giving you hair confidence. With continued use you will see new hair growing. Highly recommended.
Simply The Best!
I swear by this miracle hair gel - it has completely transformed my thinning hair. I now have thicker, healthy hair with body and shine. My hairdresser cannot believe how much extra hair I have growing all over my scalp. Do not waste another minute of your time JUST BUY IT! You will not regret it and you will love the results as I do!
I am on steroids because of my medical condition and noticed my hairline was very thin. I use this every other day and do notice some growth. Got my mum on the product, too, and have talked non-stop about it in work.
Great Condition & Less Hair Fall
The first thing I noticed was the improved condition. It [gave] my hair more body and shine. I also noticed less hair fall. My hair appears denser around my hairline.
The improvement has clearly been visible by my hairdresser and myself over the last 3 weeks. My hair is much thicker and more manageable.
I have been using Hairfix for over a year now the results are wonderful; I have new hair growth all over my head and my hair is stronger. I've been buying from QVC but this time ordered direct from Hairfix as QVC were out of stock and I could not be without this fantastic product!

How would you like your hair to be up to 25% thicker?
Turn around thinning hair right now! New Hairfix Total Volume Shampoo & Conditioner will leave your hair up to 25% thicker after just five uses.
One of the first changes women notice as they head towards their forties in the diminishing thickness of their hair. This is because the root – or follicle – of each hair becomes less productive with hormonal changes, stress and the body’s changing ability to process nutrients. The central shaft (cortex) of the hair will grow as usual but the outer layer – the cuticle shell – becomes thinner.
The result is, frankly, annoying and frustrating. Why won’t it style as obediently as it once did? Why does it look sparser, drier and less… fabulous?
If fine, thin or limp hair troubles you, we have a new shampoo and conditioner, Total Volume, which will restore its health and volume, leaving it naturally thicker by up to 25%, smoother and shinier.
The ingredient that makes all the difference? Kerestore™, which is a natural ingredient and an advanced form of keratin (a fibrous structural protein that makes up hair) unique to Hairfix.
Each molecule of Kerestore™ bonds to your hair, just as the keratin that makes up the cuticle that surrounds the cortex should. And the more keratin that’s missing from that central shaft – due to poor growth or damage – the more Kerestore™ bonds to it, thickening it naturally from the outside-in.
* After just five applications you can expect an increase in thickness of up to 25%
* Total Volume incorporates a scalp-conditioner to encourage a more productive growth environment

The differences between hairdryers - important or just a lot of hot air?
On the face of it, all hairdryers are equal and pretty straightforward - a fan inside pushes cool air towards a heating element, then blows hot air out through the nozzle in order to dry your lovely locks.
Simple and yet… do you know what makes some hairdryers more suitable for certain hair types and styling needs than others? Do you know your ionic from your tourmaline from your titanium? And does it matter if you don’t?
Simon Bryer, international style director and co-founder of Hairfix, says, “Whilst I don’t endorse individual brands I do want to bang a drum for quality hairdryers. Why? Because a high quality model that's suited to your hair type can significantly improve the health of your hair. The right dryer will decrease your chances of ending up with brittle, fried and frazzled hair.”
That doesn’t mean that you need to spend a fortune but you do need to have an idea of what different types of dryer bring to the party so that you can choose the one that’s right for you. The key things to focus on are the material used inside, wattage, weight, and extra features that might make blow-drying your hair easier.
I just set my hairdryer to max and aim it at my hair, right?
Wrong! Heat should be varied according to your hair type and how wet it is. If you have thick or coarse hair or want to quickly remove excess moisture from very wet hair, you’ll need high heat BUT you must keep that high heat moving and avoid focusing in one area so that you don’t over-dry or burn your hair.
If, on the other hand, you have thin or fragile hair or you’re drying damp (as opposed to wet) hair, you’ll need to use a lower, cooler setting. And we all need cool air towards the end of blow-drying to seal the hair cuticle, set our style for long-lasting hold and to add shine.
Any old ion, any old ion…
“You should check the spec for your dryer because wet hair needs negative ions," adds Simon. "Wet hair is loaded with positive ions and negative ions ensure that the surface water comes away from the cuticle more easily and the remaining moisture is ‘locked’ into the hair. Your hair will feel drier faster but with lots of lovely moisture within and a shiny surface on the outside.”
All heat is equal, isn't it?
“You’d think so, wouldn’t you? This is where we begin to get a little more technical as some heat is kinder and some is quicker. It's all a question of what material is used to coat the heating element," says Simon.
Look for an ionic or tourmaline dryer if you have thick, frizzy hair or difficult to dry hair. Both types create negative ions that help break up the positively charged water droplets on your hair for faster drying and to combat frizz.
Tourmaline is a semi-precious mineral that provides the most intense ionic action. Tourmaline dryers are more expensive than regular ionic dryers but a good investment if you’re after a faster, shinier, less frizzy finish.
If you have fine or thin hair, ionic dryers aren’t for you as they’re not as good at building volume as other types.
Ceramic or porcelain dryers are good for fine or dry hair that dehydrates easily – and a safe bet for most hair types. They use infrared heat that’s efficient, gentle and evenly distributed. They also use negative ions to prevent frizz and allow you to dry your hair more quickly.
Titanium coating is similar to ceramic (but lighter) and used to distribute heat evenly. This is due to titanium's ability to maintain a high, constant temperature, which also means faster drying and less damage to hair.
What's it with speed, watts and whatnot?
A high-wattage motor means greater wind power and less heat damage. A wattage in the range of 1300 to 1875 should do you well for home use.
You do need to adjust heat levels according to your hair texture, condition and the time you have in which to blow dry it. So, make sure you have a few speed and heat options and preferably a cool shot button to protect you from overheating your hair (start using this or a cool temperature setting when your hair’s about 80% dry), seal the hair cuticles for a smoother, shinier look, and to lock in your style and curl.
Weighing it all up...
Ah, yes! Don’t forget to look at factors such as the weight of a dryer, its ergonomics, how long its cord is, whether the buttons are logically placed before you buy. Product reviews from users are invaluable here – as is the advice of your hairdresser.
The bottom line is that you don’t need to spend a fortune but do take care to buy a safe dryer from a reputable brand,
Simon says, “I’m a fan of tourmaline and ionic dryers. They aren’t always expensive, and checking what the dryer you’re buying is made from and whether it suits your hair type won’t cost you a thing but could save your hair.”

What adds instant volume, super shine and helps keeps your hair in the growth phase for longer?
The answer lies in Hairfix’s brand new Follicle Max Volume, an easy to use spray containing caffeine and keratin that gives instant volume, a sleek keratin finish and protects the roots of your hair from age-related hormone damage.
If your hair is fine or becoming finer, the answer is yes! This is a common problem beyond the age of 40 when hair shafts typically lose about a quarter of their thickness, roots shrink, hair loss increases and it becomes harder to get the volume and lift you used to. Fortunately Hairfix can help.
Hairfix Follicle Max Volume is a light spray containing Hairfix’s own blend of vegetable hair identical keratin and caffeine. Keratin improves the health and elasticity of your hair, giving it immediate volume. Caffeine, when topically applied, has been shown to counteract shrinkage and dormancy in the hair root – helping to protect against hair fall when washing, brushing and styling.
Follicle Max Volume is formulated for use on wet, towel-dried or dry hair and will give you thicker feeling, volumised hair and improved scalp health as you style. Unlike many volumising products, Follicle Max Volume does not coat and weigh hair down.
Simply spray onto each tress of hair before styling clean wet or damp hair or apply a few sprays when refreshing your style between washes. You should see be a visual improvement in the hair in the first week and with continued application at this rate, new growth may see results in 60 days.
Follicle Max Volume may be safely and easily combined with Hairfix's other Follicle products. Think of it as a styling and finishing spray and, according to your hair's age and thinness, choose from the following for the ultimate haircare regime:
Follicle Plus Anti-Age gel is an overnight treatment for all-over deep scalp activation and health maintenance when hair is ageing or even prematurely ageing so that it is generally becoming greyer and sparser. It is used 2-3 times a week.
Follicle Max Advance with double caffeine and antioxidant Nucleo Trico-Hyal is a directed treatment that specifically targets and boosts hair bulbs in the areas where hair loss is most noticeable - the hairline, crown and parting. It us used 2-3 times a week.
Follicle Plus Spray Shampoo & Conditioner are used for day-to-day washing and conditioning to enhance the health and condition of your scalp and hair bulbs and reduce hair fall whilst washing. .
