ProFollica is a recently-introduced, hair loss product marketed as a natural answer to dealing with hereditary baldness in both men and women. It is claimed to be more powerful than medicinal products but without any negative side effects. ProFollica comes as a triple pack (shampoo, topical activator and nutritional supplement pills) to make it appear more valuable and deserve premium pricing. It uses some of the most common natural ingredients, such as saw palmetto, beta-sitosterol, gingko biloba, He Shou Wu (Fo-Ti) and pumpkin seed oil extract, that can be found in almost any other natural hair loss product on the market. The supplement pills contain minerals, vitamins and amino acids that are essential nutrients which feed hair but which our bodies can extract from a regular healthy diet. So far no news.
One novelty, though, is that ProFollica introduced several herbs as its key active ingredients that have not been used in other similar products yet, some of them with very exotic names. The first two - kigelia africana (a tree from tropical Africa with heavy poisonous fruits) and cinnamomum zeylanicum (famous Sri Lankan cinnamon bark) are supposed to reduce the dihydrotestosterone (DHT) levels in the scalp. The two other novel substances - panax ginseng root and salvia sclarea - are supposed to stimulate hair growth. Panax ginseng, is a very distant relative of Siberian ginseng, which can be found in many other natural hair loss products. Salvia sclarea rounds up the list of novelties introduced by ProFollica. This plant, originally from Europe and the Middle East, has been used in the past mainly as a vegetable and flavouring in traditional European cuisine. Needless to say, there appears to be no reliable scientific evidence backing the claims made by the manufacturer that any of these herbs is beneficial in treating hereditary baldness.
There are no independent consumer reviews of ProFollica yet, except for reviews at sites either associated with or directly selling this product. There does not seem to be anything extraordinary in this formula, other than a possible placebo effect created by artful marketing to convince potential customers that it works differently from most other natural, hair loss remedies.
