Restoria Consumer Reviews
By Derek from Namibia, age 67, who has been using Restoria Express Men for twelve months:
I've been using Restoria Express Men for about a year now and have always only had satisfactory results.
Recently I restocked on the light brown.
What a disappointment!!!
After using it as prescribed, my hair came out dark brown!!
What undoubtedly and very clearly happened, was that the manufacturers in Thailand (as shown on the box)must have run out of their light brown stock so they just went ahead and replenished it with the excess dark brown they had in stock!!
The box and the tube clearly show it to be light brown.
What a disappointment!!! I'll simply have to be patient until my original hair color grows back.
An experience like this certainly leaves a bitter taste in one's mouth!!!
By Keith from the UK, age 60, who has been using Restoria cream for three weeks:
after using a similar product, which was useless, I stumbled across Restoria Cream; and it actually works. I cannot use conventional hair colour because of allergy. I have no problems with Restoria. Very Happy
Difficult to buy but good
By Chris from the UK, age 57, who has been using Restoria Discrete for seven years:
This product works quite well compared to others. The original formula was more effective (but more toxic apparently). New formula less effective, but still works OK & the smell is less offensive...
Tip 1: I have found the dryer your hair, the more effective, so, if you can, let your hair dry in the morning before applying. You will get better results.
Tip 2: The original & later formula seems to work better when exposed to the sun. I don't know if this is because of the sunlight or the heat, but again, if you can, apply to dry hair & then go outside & do some gardening for 15 mins..good results. For those of U that live in colder climates, try a hair dryer..it may give the same results
By Boyle from EU, age 47, who has been using Restoria cream for one year:
Does not work as good as original. Colour comes out after washing. Colour goes onto pillows when sleeping. When I work out, colour comes out due to perspiration from head. When it rains, rain water on head turns brown and drops onto clothes.
Restoria works but can you live with the smell
By Howard, age 48, who has been using Restoria cream for one month:
The product works like most of the competition, couple of weeks to colour and a couple of weeks to wash out, but the strong embarrassing smell of this product makes it impossible to continue to use and makes you so self conscious about being close to anyone, it's not worth it, i'm going back to Grecian...
Eliminating grey hair
By David from South Africa, age 60, who has been using Restoria products for ten years:
I have been using Restoria products for many years. I use the Discreet LOTION on my hair (smells OK) and Express for Men on my beard and moustache. Wonderful products - I can't manage without them. I improvise when it comes to the application of the EFM and find an old toothbrush better than the comb/brush provided.
NO Grey Hair
By Carlos from South Africa, age 62, who has been using Restoria Discreet for many years:
Restoria Discreet is such an easy product to use and it certainly keeps me looking as young as I feel. Well done Restoria.
Restoria Discreet, waste of money and time
By Rahman from UAE, age 40, who has been using Restoria Discreet for four months:
I have been using Restoria Discreet for more than 4 months but I have not noticed any remarkable change in my grey hairs. I could see only a slight golden brown colour in some of the hairs, remaining hairs still white only. Can I sue this manufacturer for advertising such stupid and misleading ads to cheat people all over the world? Please advise.
Restoria doesn't work
By Andy from Australia, age 50, who has been using Restoria Discreet for two years:
Tried it and kept on trying it, upped the dose, and upped the frequency to every day, to twice a day ..., even tried using it in conjunction with Grecian: no visible effect: it doesn't work: what a waste of $$$$
Initially good but later not as good
By Shal from the UK, age 45, who has been using Restoria 3 Minute Colour Treatment for six months:
I stumbled into Restoria 3 Minute Colour Treatment sometime towards the end of 2009. After using it for the first few days, I got desired result.
Future applications did not colour my hair black as much and I got lovely blonde highlights here and there.
After the first batch, the store did not stock them any more. The next batch obtained from another source later has turned most of my hair brownish; the parts that were black.
I was wondering why the same product did not give the initial satisfactory result. This might point to the fact that the composition of the active ingredients could have been changed.
I am not quite liking that and will be using hair dye to get my hair back to black.
I am not quite sure about the effect of the Restoria Lotion or Cream. It would probably take much longer time to achieve results with them; while the 3 Minute Colour Treatment tends to give a sort of instant result.
The 3 Minute Colour Treatment does not colour my hairline area at all and this is where I need it most.
I will keep using the stock that I have purchased with the hope of getting results and that my hair would not keep changing to brown.
By Hester from South Africa, age 58, who has been using Restoria Cream for two days:
I bought it hoping to be able not to grow grey roots. it seems to be working after using it only for two days, but i do not know that i would be able to continue to use it. The smell of sulphur is owerpowering and i really stink.
