Someone recommended that I try the shampoo and conditioner set ‘Plantur 39’ that has been designed and produced in collaboration with the dermatological institute of the University Clinic Jena by Dr. Wolff for woman with thinning hair, however, mostly due to the menopause. But, as this product contains a Phyto-Caffeine Complex that has been proven to reduce hair loss, I thought that I’d give it a try. I also thought that I’d buy the topical solution too, I figured that no harm would come from using all three products and I had hoped that this would kick start my hair into regrowth.
Using the product was simple enough, just like applying your shampoo and conditioner as part of your daily routine. The only difficulty that I came across was that when lathering up the bubbles I couldn’t seem to do it on my patches as there was no hair there to massage the solution into.
I personally feel that the topical solution is very difficult to apply yourself, especially if you are like me and have patches on the back of your head. Below is a photo of what the applicator looks like, and without being at the correct angle it is extremely difficult to be able to apply on your own.
I don’t think that Plantur 39 have taken into consideration that some people are not comfortable in showing people their patches and therefore would not be comfortable in asking for help in applying. I am extremely lucky that I have people around me that I can ask to help me, but I completely empathise with those of you who do not. If you are reading this and thinking that it sounds similar to how you feel, then unfortunately, I wouldn’t recommend this product for you.
I am yet to see results from using Plantur 39. This could however be due to the fact that my Alopecia has reached a more severe state. That is not to say that this product won’t work for any of you.
I would be really interested to hear from those of you that have used this product. Comment below or message me at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your experiences and views.

I am going to continue to use the topical solution for a couple more weeks and will let you all know of any further progress that I have had.
Until my next post…
